Mark and Jay from Pixel Enemy sit down with Dan Remo of Combobreaker.com to talk about the 3 biggest heavyweights in the FPS genre. Like the Highlander, there can be only one. Tune in to find out who wins.
These are really the only 3 good competitive shooters on consoles. Kz, resistance, and 90 percent of games just have atrocious multiplayer.
With Halo you get an old school FPS
With Call of Duty you get a run and gun, lone wolf style
With Battlefield you get a team based game
A lot of other games are just clones or rehashes that do a lot of things well but not one thing brilliantly
Destructibility+Vehicles+Team Based Gameplay>Everything else
Battlefield(series) Is the best/most modern FPS out there. It feels weird to play other games with gigantic explosions and bombs that don't blow up buildings anymore. Or no vehicles. That dynamic alone should be mandatory in games. Its so amazingly fake to hide inside a Tin Hut when a laser cannon is shooting at you. Or when a C130 is shooting at your building. Destructibility adds that much more of a challenge to the game, makes you think & change your strategy. Its great. Decent visuals, good controls, balanced weapons. Lets be honest here, the FPS isn't exactly fresh and new. TDM in one game, is the same as another, just as "control" CTF Deathmatch... collect orbs..blah blah all the original Unreal Tournament variables. Little things have been really done to push the genre foward. The newest idea since health-regen though, should be making destructibility & scale the #1 things. FPS multiplayer without those elements feel stagnant. I haven't dived into KZ3's mp footage, but if its like 2, unfortunately it wont drive me away from Battlefield. It would be nice if Halo added scale & destructibility, because more than likely others would follow suit.
If you are talking about series then I would say battlefield is better than those 3 but the most recent games that are out I would say Halo REACH.
The only correct answer is Battlefield. Battlefield has grown by leaps and bounds since Battlefield 1942. It is the only series that is actually innovating instead of churning out the same old game year after year. Of course, Halo is the biggest offender, barely anything has changed between Halo 1 and Halo Reach gameplay-wise. And CoD has become stale and old hat ever since they got bought up by Activision. But Cod 1 and 2 were amazing for their time. Battlefield is easily the reining champ of FPS games. Where else can you find battles over enormous environments with 32 players (used to be 64 players), an excellent class system and intense vehicular warfare? and now we can add destructibility to that list of ever growing innovation. All the others are just pretenders.
You are hugely entertaining! (i subscribed ) Yea, MW2 is broken ...
i accidentally clicked disagree, i meant AGREE.
Battlefield. If you look at all the BF titles, they are all different. With each BF game, they innovate. From kits, to vehicles, to gameplay, to a squad system, etc. They always add something new to the table. So you never get the same product over and over. Can't wait for BF3!
