Does Battlefield 4 Look Better Than Call of Duty: Ghosts?

GamingBolt: ''DICE revealed Battlefield 4 at GDC 2013, debuting its new Frostbite 3 engine in the process, and Infinity Ward recently showed off the fruits of their labour with a “new” engine for the upcoming Call of Duty: Ghosts. The question was bound to come up sooner or later though: Which game looks better out of the two?

A YouTube user VidxHD took it upon himself to find out, and created a side-by-side comparison video of the two games, with Battlefield 4 on the left and Call of Duty: Ghosts on the right. Specific moments have been edited in such a way to showcase aspects of both games that can be compared, such as the facial animation and destruction. Check it out below.'' (Battlefield 4, Call of Duty: Ghosts, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Your disagrees are delusional. Face it people, Battlefield 4 does in fact look better than CoD: Ghosts. That is not an opinion. It is actually graphically superior. If CoD fanboys want to try to argue about which is more fun/entertaining, then by all means... But people need not fool themselves here.

The thing is, that CoD footage is all cut scenes, there's no actual gameplay. Whether it's being done with the in game engine or not remains to be seen, but that's probably the best the game is ever going to look. In game will be smooth, but it won't be as graphics intense as Battlefield 4.

Gamers won't care either way, they'll look for what is familiar and safe as they always do, and buy the next CoD like they always do. EA is just hoping its used game online pass BS being thrown out will help sales as they're going to need it with the high costs of next gen development. Those graphics aren't going to come cheap!

Graphically? Yes.

From a gameplay perspective COD will still be the #1 choice for most.
Pandamobile  +   905d ago
Which is something I still don't understand. I played the BLOPS2 free weekend last week, and could barely manage to play for an hour. The movement is so awkward and sluggish compared to what I'm used to in Battlefield 3. BF3's gameplay at its most basic level (movement and shooting) is just so much more fluid and satisfying.

You both confused between facts and opinion.

Battlefield have better graphics and gameplay but which one you prefer is your decision. It's a taste matter. It's like comparing GT to forza , GT win as a sim however which one i prefer is a taste matter. You can't argue with facts but you can say i like call of duty art style and gameplay more then BF which is kool because that's your taste but don't deny the quality of BF gameplay.

@ Pandamobile

The crazy thing about that is the movement speed in blops2 is not consistent.

I have no idea how they have managed to do it, but it seems to be something related to the whole lag comp/anti-lag or whatever it is they did with the network code to mess it up so bad.

I have played games using the same class setup in every game with lithtweight etc and yet some games I move really fast while others I seem to be running in quick-sand. On the flip side I have seen opponents running so fast you can barely track them, yet when they kill you and you can see what perks they are running there is no lightweight, nothing...

Blops2 and cod in general has become one of the most inconsistent MP games I have ever played. People who don't play a lot of it would not really pick up on these issues as much. For some people they don't have any of these issues at all. It's all down to your connection (that is not to say you have a bad connection) or rather what they have done with the netcode in relation to your connection.

Anyway back on point. BF3 > ghost. BF4 no contest.

And by like a bazillion miles. It's almost as if Battlefield 4 is running on a new engine developed to harness next gen tech while cod is running on the same engine they've been using for over 10 years, merely tweaked to run on next gen tech...

Wait... a.... minute........

Does BF4 look better than a game using an updated engine from 1999? (Yes, really)
Dannycr  +   905d ago
Battlefield 4 gameplay looks way better than COD: Ghosts CGI cutscenes. That's actually really funny and pathetic at the same time. I do like COD, i have fun with it, but I've felt really cheated with this last game. Doesn't feel next gen (unlike BF4).
HammadTheBeast  +   905d ago
Keep in mind it is running on a high end PC, but its safe to say even BF3 on medium looks better than Ghosts.
Dannycr  +   905d ago
Agreed. The only time when Ghost felt somewhat next-gen, was when they zoomed in on the models, but during the reveal trailer, it looked just slightly better than MW3, whilst BF4 looked gorgeous from start to finish with A TON of stuff happening. I know it was PC, but that should be the standard to be judged. I know the PS4 and Xbox One will be capable of running BF4 close to what was shown. BF3 is miles away better looking on PC, but BF3 is still gorgeous to look at in consoles.

Doesn't matter if they even both look the same. Battlefield games play better then CoD games... so that is enough for me.

Ghost looks like a current gen Call of Duty maxed out on PC, which is not ugly by any means but still is VERY underwhelming for next-gen graphics.

YoungPlex  +   905d ago
This is all wrong! It doesn't matter if it looks better or not, the question should ALWAYS be does it play better! But hey, if all people care about is graphics then enjoy; I for one could care less about graphics so long as the gameplay is topnotch. Don't get me wrong graphics are nice but I feel that gameplay has always been the core of what makes gaming great. I would rather a developer focus on more realistic physics instead of graphics because gameplay usually benefits from realistic physics. We're at a point where graphics already look superb so why not focus more on physics and gameplay first and graphics second...?
KrystofKage  +   905d ago
Graphics is just one argument being made here. But if you wish to discuss what has better physics and gameplay, it's not even a competition. It's not just the destructible environment, but the little things that make BF superior(such as going into a building, and having gunshots sound hollow).

Call of Duty is just a new paint job every year, it hasn't done anything amazing in regards to gameplay since COD4.
allgamespc2012  +   905d ago
so what you are asyaing is that you are a COD fanboy right? your opinion doesnt matter if thats the case.
YoungPlex  +   905d ago
Please you got it all wrong! If anything I have always preferred Battlefield genius! I'm just sick of graphics being the high note when gameplay is ALWAYS better! Since you have clearly showed that your some type of fanboy your opinion becomes invalid to me!

I've always chose BF because of the realistic physics it's delivered nobody's arguing this. I think that most people that read my comment felt like I was defending COD in some way when I was just saying that, you now what? Never mind... This site has gone to Sh*t!

Blakhaze999  +   905d ago
Im sure people care more about the gameplay. But since none of us played either game yet it dont hurt to compare visual quality based on what we see. I always thought Bf looked better but preferred COD gameplay. 60fps and the smooth controls makes a big difference in my opinion.
cell989  +   905d ago
yeah but Battlefield gameplay is way better than COD, until now I cant think of one single advantage COD has over BF3 besides zombies. Ive had Bf3 since it first came out and I still play it constantly till this very day, those $60 have paid off with countless hours of awesome VARIED gameplay. So my layers of gameplay compared to the generic COD where the AI does everything for you as long as you can acquire a killstreak.....

lmao Infinity Ward said: "We all really knew we wanted to continue making Call of Duty".

Incorrect. Activision is running the show - not IW.

The only reason they are making more call of duty is because of the annual sale reports.

Activision is making sure of that.

And the only way stopping them from doing so is to stop buying CoD and not just rant about it on the internet

I was pretty quick to judge and mark down the next cod because it was shown at the xbone convention, but after having a proper look at the reveal and developer video in high def on youtube , it looks real nice actually , and the changing environments of multi player sounds pretty awesome.. May not be a first day buy on my ps4 but I will be checking it out.

Anything looks better than cod
e-p-ayeaH  +   905d ago
Battlefiled 4 definitly looks better here´s why:

-Improved character animations and texture detail
-Better particle and shaders effects
-The gameplay seems to be working quite nicely.

Even tough for those that might want fast agressive gameplay probably CoD:Ghosts will be better for that battlefiled gameplay wasnt really designed to be played in certain ways.

I thought the trailer for COD Ghosts was done on current gen systems. I honestly dont see that much of a difference. Looking forward to e3 to see more footage. Im buying both games either way. Both bring different things to the table. I was hoping for a major upgrade in the graphical dept of COD tho since it hasnt improved much graphically since modern warfare (the first one).

Soldierone  +   905d ago
The sad part is, all of COD's visuals are pre rendered scenes. We hardly saw any gameplay, if any at all, and it still struggles to remotely compete for good visuals....

Meanwhile Killzone and BF4 are showing off actual gameplay and it looks miles better than the pre rendered COD scenes.
NarooN  +   905d ago
This question is almost insultingly rhetorical. Even Bad Company 2 on PC looks better than CoD Ghosts, which - it goes without saying - is a shame.
