Extensive article comparing Battlefield: Bad Company 2 to Modern Warfare 2.
Truly one of the best comparison article have read this year. None of the bias crap and covers the most important aspect of both games when it comes to comparing them.
Both are good games, although even for as buggy as COD mw2 is, it still feels more polished than bc2. Gameplay in BC2 suffers also due to very low damage values for the weapons. Shooting someone 7 times for them to die is not fun.
Bad Company 2 is much much better in every way. I've played the beta and the demo and it's the best multiplayer shooter i've ever played. The atmosphere is incredible.
yeah its strange a demo isn't as polished as a full game right? -_- and they don't take that many bullets! god damn you kids don't know how to aim need 1 hit kills to make up for your aiming? aim for the head it kills in one shot ;)
"Gameplay in BC2 suffers also due to very low damage values for the weapons." Really? I never have a problem getting kills in BF2 with only a bullet or 2. I am not saying everyone of my kills only takes 2 shots but I personally have gotten 1 shot kills with a pistol. I think you might be "spraying and praying". I don't expect everyone to like BF2. It doesn't even have akimbo shotguns. We all know how much skill it takes to get a kill with those. To each their own I guess.
Modern Warfare 2: NO BETA Camping Overpowered Killstreaks Lag, bad Net Coding. Overpowered Guns EXCESSIVE HACKING (honestly We got this game hacked the first week.) Care packet glitch GLITCHES Knifing from 10 feet away (lol) (commando) No fall damage (commando pro) 9 vs 9. Bad Company 2: Had a BETA Ground Vehicles Air Vehicles Teamwork Destruction Environment Great Online Connectivity (at least me) Intense Action More Realistic. 16 vs 16. To be honest, Modern Warfare 2 was just a great example, of what happens to good developers when they see the money already rolling in and they don't care about the fans.
that what tactical shooters are like! EDIT: but BFBC2 is not like this if u really played the beta. I get two and sometimes three kills without having to reload.
gold(bfbc2) to $hit?
Bad Company 2 >>> Modern Warfare 2
No. Bad Company 2 >>>>>>>&g t;>>>>>>>& gt;>>>>>>> >>>>>>>> ;Modern Warfare 2
Haha, guys I do agree with you both but I wanted to be as unbiased as possible and since that is what the majority of the gaming media are pitting it against I thought it right to do a fair comparison.
These games shouldn't really be compared. BC2 is a completely different game where the focus should be comparing Medal of Honor to Call of Duty. But part of the blame is on EA who is sort of pushing to whole BC2 taking on MW2. Can't really blame them after seeing the amount of copies sold of MW2.
I agree with you wholeheartedly, they are very different beasts, it is EA who have said their game will beat MW2 so I found it interesting to see how that could possibly be.
BFBC2 is waaaay better than MW2. Granted if you like running around a small map, no vehicles no destruction then fine, but I have had more fun in a demo than I did owning MW2
As much as I hate Activision/IW, I have to admit, there are a few areas in which MW2 seems to look better through the eyes of the casual gamer. People will look at the movement differences, weapon customization differences, differences in tactical approach and many of the casual gamers will probably side with MW2, mostly due to the fact that it looks easier to get kills or simply do other things. Others, like me, who prefer a much more tactically challenging game will choose BFBC2. So, I agree it's a matter of personal preference of each individual. And the fact that someone chooses one game over the other is not a testimony to his/her gaming skills.
Great article ;D
Both are very fun and enjoyable games in their own right, and can't really be compared. If I had a choice between one or the other, I would choose Bad Company 2. Modern Warfare 2 is a great game, but I still find Bad Company 2 to be so much more enjoyable and immersive.
BFBC2 is much better than MW2 in my opinion, it's not some run and gun shooter, it's more realistic. It has a better atmosphere, great visuals and awesome physics. This makes it a day one buy for me, loving the demo so far.
BFBC2 sniping takes skill.
MW2 = VERY VERY FAST PACED ADDICTION! BFBC2 = Not as big, not as good, lag free and destructible version of MAG and KZ2
If anything BC2 should be compared to MAG, bc at the end of the day no one is going to care about the story mode of any war game. MAG and BC2 is more of the same, MW2 in my opinion is the better game comapred to BC2 bc it is more action packed, where BC2 just is a golden gate to snipers, which tend to get me annoyed since the buildings will all be gone by the middle of the game, thus leaving it a winter wonderland for snipers.. The board is so big that you wont even no where the bullet came from. And what game will make you feel more accomplished, killing 12 ppl in a 20min game mode, or 30 ppl with 5 deaths in a 5 to 15min battle.. Its all gonna come down to the maturity level More patient ppl are gonna choose BC2 where more action gamers are gonna choose MV2.. but the sleeper here is MAG in which i personally think is better then both..
I hate MW2 multiplayer. MAG > MW2 and its not even because MAG is that great.
BC2 is the complete package offers both MW and BC gameplay but BC2 does it better. In BC2 you are dealing with a modern warfare...one of the best fps I have ever played.
Im really glad that people are starting to realize how broken MW2 is. Honestly, once BC2 comes out i'll probably never go back to MW2 for multiplayer.
I believe that BFBC2 will not surpass MW2 in sales but BFBC2 is going to be the superior game overall and I emphasize on overall.
Its hard to argue someone perception of "action" but lemme say this... MW2 does a great job keeping the pace up... BFBC packs action is with realism... Theres not as action packed on MW2 as having the tank shells echoing in your air as he blows as wall down... Sirens are blazing and you trying to defuse a bomb... lol MW2 doesnt even come close... If you know anything about real urban combat... Its definitely not people running in the open stabbing people left and right...
Both games are very fun in their own way. You can't compare the 2, as they aren't on the same level. MW2 is a fun fast paced arcade shooter. BC2 is more of a tactical game where its not as easy to just run and gun like you might in MW2. Both are great games in my book. I just hate the damn glitchers in MW2.
Modern Warfare 2 >>>> Battlefield Bad Company 2 A million times over
I definitely prefer Bad Company 2 to Modern Warfare 2, but that's just my opinion.
after playing both games i think MW single player is very good and usually BC sucks in the campaign. other than the story mode...BC is just so much better in anything else. -The maps are great. -The vehicles don't create an imbalance at all and are very fun to use.take (that COD5) So i have to go with BF this time around for the multiplayer fun.
