Gameplayer has gone live with an in-depth hands-on preview of the Battlefield: Bad Company multiplayer in which they argue that "once people get a taste of Bad Company, they won't want to venture back to CoD4 and Frontlines."
Why does something have to be "better" than this or "worse" than that?
They're different games, sure the genre is the same but that is where the similarities end.
Personally, I imagine I'll be juggling and enjoying both :)
because many people have to choose between buying one, or the other.
Who the hell is playing Frontlines?
hahahahahahha exactly what i was saying when i finished reading.
who in the hell is playing frontlines?
Well thats to bad for dice, cause anything that EA has there name on i wont buy. And to the guy that was talking about frontlines, i know there is at least 50 people playing it. I rented it and played 1 50 player match then i sent it back to gamefly.
but unless they fixed the frame rate i wouldn't say it stands a chance (for those who do want to compare)
And then COD5 beats Bad Company and so on and so on.
I hope it's a friendly competition like COD4 and Halo 3, it will keep pushing them.
Are beter than COD4. But yeah the trend always change with so many games competition is too much.
I have been playing Bad company beta and maxed out on rank, have alos put alot of time into COD4, Bad Company Graphics are not better than COD4. COD4 graphics are much better, Bad company graphics seem the same as BF2. I realy dont see the difference, But it does have very nice Sound, The explosions have real depth to them.
this game will have lots of flaws, come on.....it's EA we r talking about here. u should know better.....shame on all of u
DICE are actually good, EA is just publishing it
Actualy its DICE that has decided to not have open team chat in the game, have only 1 game mode, no clan support etc. I wish the game was made by EA developers.
You are joking right? I played about 15 minutes of the beta and then deleted it; I have 3+ days logged on CoD 4. This is no contest.
worst battlefield to date, cod4 is much better.
being as disappointed in a sequel as I was with BF:Bad Company. The beta is horrible. It's not even close to being on the same level as COD4. The BF beta has bad frame rates, video tearing, hit detection issues, lag, graphics that are not even close to being on the same level as COD4. The one thing I really thought was excellent in BF was the sound.
The only thing that makes BF even remotely interesting is the vehicles. I was so looking forward to BF:BC and now I am hoping EA (stop laughing @ me!) gets DICE to pull off some last minute magic and the actual game is significantly better then this beta I played. However I am not holding my breath on that one.
This game in it's current form shouldn't even be mentioned in the same breath as COD4 and I was a HUGE BF fan. At least until I played this version.
untouchable at this moment, like it or not. anyways,why they even mention call of duty 4 in this interview and try to make it sound like you wont want to venture with call of duty 4 once you play battlefield? just make the game the best that you can, and shut your pie hol.
yeah from what ive heard and read it is completely dissappointing.
at first look i thought this game was gonna be the shiz. especially with destructible environments cause im a big fan of that and really want to see that to its fullest. like people dying because a building was shot with a bazooka and it fell on them.
too bad this game doesnt seem like its gonna wreck.
but pray that im wrong.
@predator - i know EA is just publishing it. they dont care if its finished or not. so there will be flaws due to the lack of effort to ensure quality. u know this..........maaaaaaan
cod4 is king for now..
COD4 much better than Battlefield, without doubt!!
well it might do, but still we wont be playing bad company as much as we did with COD4...
I can't believe the people in here are comparing a Beta game (BF) with a fully complete game (COD4). COD4 is great don't get me wrong, but yes Battlefield BC has a good chance of being better. We wont know until the Full version comes out. Comparing Beta haha.
lol has a chance of being better its coming from ea the maddens every years the crazy dlc. ya do know that this game should be including some weapons but guess what they left them out as dlc now how stupid is that.
I can tell you that overall this game has been a dissapointment to so many of us that have been playing it.
What does it has over COD4? Well vehicles, larger maps and destructable environments.
Why this game will come and go quickly and be forgotten?
1. No communication makes this game frustrating and dull after the newness of the maps wear off. The game has a very unpopular system of communication where you are allowed to speak to only 3 team mates and can not talk to any of the other people on your team, even if you have people on your team talking, if they are in your squad you will not be able to talk with them in the game. This game has NO OPEN TEAM CHAT! This almost kills the game by itself.
2. No clan support!
3. Vehicles are much much slower than in BF2, The vehicles like Humvees now move very very slowly about 2 mph faster than a tank, It takes alot of road to try to over take a tank now and you are also an easy target.
4. Maps are large but you only get to fight in a small section at a time, only after attackers take an objective does the next section open up.
5. ONLY 1 GAME MODE! the only game mode is Gold Rush, sort of like head quarters in COD4. You will have no conquest, team deathmatch, or capture the flag.
6. If one of your team mates sees an enemy the enemy shows up in game as a red dot, even if behind buildings and mountains, this takes much of the challenge out of the game, its almost like having a cheat code that shows you where all the enemy are.
I am a Battlefield Fan! but I have to say the only thing this game has over any other battlefield game is the ability to shoot or knock down some walls and trees ( not all walls are destructable but most outside walls are, inside walls are not (for instance in your bedroom you have 4 walls, 1 or 2 share a wall with an exterior wall, while the others are deeper inside the house, so if in game only the 2 exterier walls would be able to be taken out, Also floors can not be damaged regardless if its first or second or third lvl floor.
But if you took out tree and wall destruction this game would be a very poor wana-be of battlefield 2, Battlefield2 running circles arround this game. And last I checked BF2 does not and never has had the popularity of COD4.
Though COD4 does SUCK in some ways, Number 1 for me is the rotating random map system they have for online play, Screw that, let us play the maps we want to play when we want to play them, Dont make us play a bunch of crap maps over and over in hopes we might get to play that one map we love! This is why I have put COD4 away, If I could choose my own maps in ranked matches I would still be playing it.
If you plan on buying BF bad company because you love BF2, you may not be getting what you expect and may be very dissapointed, I would recoment renting this one first so you know what you are getting into.
Please stop please.
Battlefield will have several game modes and the chat will be fine. All the others have been. Again Beta, stop judging a game thats in beta jeez, its not complete. Battlefield has had clan support before and this one will to. Dude your talking about a franchise that invented all this, I'm sure the final version will be fine.
If you think Battlefield is going to have just one game mode lol.
This information has been confirmed by the developers. In a Q & A session. They have "CONFIRMED" that the full version will have closed chat so you can only talk to 3 friends, Confirmed that the game will have only the one game mode, Confirmed that they will not have prone in the game, Vehicles will be given more weight in full version but speed not to be changed, And no clan support.
These are all things the Development guys stated just about a week ago publicly. This is not Battlefield 3, this is an entirly different game, If you think you will get more game modes or that they will change any of the above you are going to be very dissapointed.
lulz did EA pay this guy to promote the game or something? The beta was horrible, it's not even going to usurp Halo 3, let alone COD4.
Never. Bad Company is pretty much garbage compared to CoD4.
To destroy everything will be amazing.
Dice was bought by EA somewehere in '05-'06 - I wonder how many of the original members of the studion jumped the ship.
The beta sucked a$$, Frontlines is better then this Battlefield wannabe attempt.
COD 4 graphics are a lot better.
COD 4 beta was miles ahead of this junk.
Battlefield Bad Company - it's in the name lol (anyone remembers the problems with servers in BFMC that were operated by EA where we could not play for days?? )
BETA = not finished.
Just to clarify.
But many people do not realize that.
I don't know. My wallet has an opinion though, it's screaming "NO! Please spare me EA's microtransactions!"
Ill wait for it to come out and read reviews. Listening to fanboys is pointless. I love COD4, but Im willing to give BF a try. So far the videos look great. We'll see.
Why does everybody have at least 1 or more disagrees.. haha. Anyway.. From the majority of the comments they say CoD4 is waaaaaaaay better, but is Bad Company any good??
