DICE's Patrick Bach has said that he believes "a lot of people on executive level" at EA see beating Modern Warfare as a goal.
Ea hav already beaten MW2 in my books i loved the BC2 beta MW2 was a rental and BC2 is on pre-order
Agreed, the quality of thebeta alone exceeds Mw2. (imo) The beta was just amazing. I actually had to put the beta down early so it wouldn't get stale. Loved the beta and am expecting great things from Dice.
The BFBC2 beta already confirmed it. It was amazing.
"Agreed, the quality of thebeta alone exceeds Mw2." lol The Bad Company 2 beta was a jaggy mess that looked and played pretty much exactly like the first one. EA and Dice have a lot of work to do if they think they can go toe-to-toe with Modern Warfare 2.
i exspected more from dice! why dont they aim for being better than killzone 2? lol
they have both beat easily. they will copy BC2 in their next sequels, especially the damage.
i would love to see destructable environments in killzone 3, i know 2 had a few set pieces but its not quite the same... i really loved battlefield destructable environments, im sure they have improved that too which will be awesome!
its just how many ppl play bad company 1 today still no one.... until mw2 cod still had huge numbers playing mw2 is so flawed and overhyped but is still more fun to play.... non gamers love mw2 non gamers dont know about bad company 2.... it will not beat activision even if it deserves to
I liked BFBC and the BFBC2 beta, but there's no way it's going to outsell MW2. As to beating MW2 in gameplay, I don't think so either. There's really not much variety to the game types (at least there really wasn't in the first one). Besides that - BC matches are long drawn-out affairs, where MW matches are quick and get over relatively quickly for the most part. With today's attention-deficit-disordered gamer population, BFBC2 just won't have the appeal that MW2 has. Still, I'm buying it...
Bad Company 2 Rulz!!! that game its just frking amazing!!! the first was OMG! and multiplayer that suck me in, and now this !!!!! no comment just waiting for it!
That statment doesn't make it sound like the beta was awesome.
@1.10 I was nearing in on all unlockable weapons and perks, so I decided to give it a rest.. because if there is something i learnt from MAG beta is that it sucks to start all over again. I put well over 100 hours in the MAG beta, and after beta ended.. i dunno how much fun I'll have. (having CIO position really rocked socks) So basically, I dont want the same thing to happen with it. No matter how good a game is, after X amount of hours, the game does get boring. So I dont wanna ruin this game like that.. (esp. since all the changes they did after the beta has me looking forward to it-- alot of the complaints that I whined about were duly noted and fixed! yay)
all fps already beat this generic auto aim "game"...
this would happen if people were smart. but no they go out and buy wiis and hook up ps3s with dvd cables to their tvs and noob it up with a garbage sequel to an overrated franchise instead
Beat them is sales. I doubt it. But in quality...yes they will. I am surprised I am saying that given my past experience with EA games. Some have been lacking in quality. But I am confident BF Bad Company 2 will deliver.
Agreed, MW2 did so much volume that will be nearly impossible to beat. However as far as quality I have no doubt. MW2 (at least the 360 version) is a total mess.
This isn't just an EA game, this is an EA Digital Illusions Creative Entertainment game. They know how to make good games haha. They're even developing the multiplayer portion of the next Medal of Honor game (which is getting a lot of attention as well).
@Ron zook stop hating on mw2. Yeah i agree with you it is extremely overrated but that doesnt make it a garbage game. I do agree though that BFBC2 is way better though. I played the beta and i couldnt stop playing.
Show us what you got EA. I loved the BETA,but that's not the full game so we will see.
beta. thinking on sparing my money untill hr and gow release :D
If it wasn't for the beta maybe i wouldn't of considered BFBC2 being that so many triple A games are releasing for the PS3 this year. However, i assure anyone that hasn't played the beta for Bad Company 2 its the best FPS i've ever played in my life the only problem i had with it was the lack of anti-aliasing but this game is truly a masterpiece and i can't wait to get my hands on the final release :-)
well seeing as Battlefield 2 is still better than every COD game released it shouldn't be too difficult.
as far as shooters are concerned, yes i'll be going from MW2 to BFBC2. but there's lots of other great titles coming out between the two, so MW2 will hit the bench long before BFBC2 hits the streets.
Beat in Quality... very Easy..
I play more resistance 2 and killzone 2 than MW2 and I hope that this game gets a large install base so theres always quick matchmaking. This and MAG will be all the FPS I need this year until (HOPEFULLY) resistance 3 or killzone 3 come out this fall.
As long as i dont get randomly kicked out of the game like on MW2 this will be way better
It's funny how the hardcore blog commenter community has such a massive hard-on for BFBC2. I was not really blown away by the beta. The engine IS super impressive... but the games I played were sort of all over the place, fun-wise. It's clearly a much deeper game than MW2 so I'm sure it'll be a very solid FPS but everyone is painting it like it's going to be revolutionary rather than evolutionary. IMHO, MAG was easily more fun as a serious long term tactical team based FPS and MW2, whether you like it or not, is a better arcade/twitch/corridor style game. Don't get me wrong, BFBC2 will probably be a nice middle ground between the two and very much worth buying and playing but hardly a redefinition of the genre. So, based on the beta? Sure, it's cool. But not even a day one purchase for me (especially with MAG coming tomorrow) and certainly not wiping the floor with the entire genre like all the hypesters here and elsewhere keep jabbering about. I'm sure it will sell enough to guarantee a sequel. I bet it'll rack up serious sales on the PC (in particular) and maybe the 360 for the MW2 haters, it will probably outsell MAG on PS3, too, since it'll probably have more name recognition and make a better first impression (and hence get better reviews, who's going to play a game for a month before reviewing it). I think if I had a 360 or PC only I'd be much more stoked for it... because I wouldn't have something deeper than MW1 and MW2 like MAG or KZ2 to supplement the arcadey FPSes. So, it's cool... something to be excited about, but really, you nutjob hype artists? You all need to chill a bit.
seriously i have never experienced any of the 'broken gameplay' ppl talk about concerning mw2 and i play it alot. and kz2 is wayyyy overrated btw seriously lmao disagree all you want. me no care lmao
You won't playing Hardcore. Regular game types are plagued with care package glitchers, FFA is filled with nuke boosters. CoD is hacked when you don't even know it. So many noobs use enhanced game mechanics making their aiming down the sights faster and alignment on the enemy from any distance at the pop of the L trigger.
I wonder if all the hate for mw2 is coming from ps3 owners or 360 owners. becuase to me the game is just fine on my 360. now is the game hated on by so many on n4g becuase the game sold so much more on the 360 so its a natural progression for it to be trashed on n4g.
The game is awsome, the only thing that pi.sses me off about it is the crappy host migration. You work hard for all that XP then the game just ends. sure this doesnt happen all the time but when it does its pure B.S
When MW2 players buy this game, they won't like it. Why? Because it's too hard for them. Fact.
I don't think so. DICE have added more impacting and fluid aiming. Unlike in BFBC1 where shooting at an enemy seemed like you were shooting at a cloud until the kill pops up, DICE have put blood effects and increased controller vibration when hitting an enemy to use, making you feel like your actually putting in work. 4v4v4v4 on small maps with 1 weapon should interest a majority of CoD players. Mindless running and killing of an enemy with no objective other than killing the most fits your average CoD players criteria.
What? I'm still playing Killzone 2!
Why on earth is this game hyped up so much? I mean its a sequel to a game that probably not only sold poorly, was an absolute insult to the battlefield name. If EA were smart, they'd have ditched the bad company name.. if it's running off the same engine or a modified version of the original bad company, it won't sell half the copies of mw2.
Sold poorly? Isn't it a platinum hits game?
They'll beat MW2 in quality (that game sucked hard), quantity though? Probably not. I've already pre-ordered it so I am very excited to play it. I didn't much of the beta, but the part that I did play, I enjoyed it much more than MW2. I enjoyed that the battles were slower paced and drawn out. MW2 has made me forget about the multiplayer aspect of CoD games. If the next one's single player story sucks, I'll be done with that franchise altogether, especially if Activision gets another studio to develop a CoD game. We'll have a new one every seven months. No thanks.
MW2 sure Good Fun game (has it's lows like all games) but they didn't improve anything it feels like i'm playing a modded MW. I swear at times i get bored of the game quick now since i played MW to hell and back, but with the BC2 Beta i found myself playing it without getting bored at all. To me BC2 already won against MW2.BC2 feels better improvements and it feels fresh not and not modded like MW2
call of duty modern warfare 2 10/10 for graphics..... that still mind boggles me
is it still 30 fps like the last BC game?
30FPS. And looks 2 times better.
MW2 is already beaten by BFBC2.. but this game will not get sales as high as MW2 because MW2 was very over-hyped..
Wow dO_Ob didn't know that If you are really a gamer the you will follow the games you like wherever they go.
From what I have seen and played of BF: BC 2, I say that they have MW 2 beat in graphics, game play, probably single player(longer single player campaign), and definitely multiplayer. The only thing they won't be beating MW 2 in is in sales.
I don't think they will beat MW2 sales but BC2 overall is way better than MW2. The beta alone is better than MW2 complete game. I won't ever buy another MW game rent maybe but buying is definitely out of the question. I think once 360 owners get their hands on BC2 they will begin to see what those who have played the beta are talking about.
With Dice all the way! Should IW how making a game is suppose to be properly done.
