1up: Less Bad Company and more Call of Duty.
DICE dont do campaigns they do MP.....suckaaaaaaaaaas.
But the Fault line trailer was the same generic setpieces as every other FPS; take out that sniper, man that turret. Who's surprised?! When I said it then, I got a million disagrees but it's the truth. The gaming media wanted this game to be more than it it is and the fact is, it's not what it was hyped to be.
Killzone 2 was no different, but that didn't stop it from being one of the most enjoyable FPS campaigns for me (in terms of gameplay) As exhausted as I am of FPS games, I have room for Battlefield, hoping it's full of large maps and vehicles like the MP as that it'd at least make it a little more unique
I used the beta to actually determine if the gameplay was fun. Indeed it was and is fun. I like the timing required to jump over things almost....almost like mirrors edge meets BF the new animation system translates to single player as well. I couldn't help but feel the weight of lugging around my body and trying to lunge over obstacles. this is the first game besides mirrors that I consciously have to keep in mind where my feet are not just the tip of my gun. very engaging. I like it and I don't care what this article says.
@Alpha Killzone 2 was different. The whole setting the rag doll physics, the superb AI and animation of helghans etc was the reason it was special. The bridge sequence was on of my favorite moments in this gen. The smoke, the dust, the lighting and the lightning etc . The art style was dif. MW3,BF3,MOH are all going to look the same. Some americans attacking either the middleeast or russians. They dont stand out in SP. I think that is why KZ2 got away with amazing reviews inspite of having the same old missions as every other FPS
Tarintino I agree, but what makes BF3 different is the vehicles and large battlefields. Every FPS game has one or two unique attributes, it's about letting those attributes shine above the norm of the genre. I think BF can do that
Every single player first person shooter experience is the same, so please don't go shouting names like Battlefield and Killzone like they're any different. Killzone: Shoot that man! Move ahead. SHOOT THAT GUY NOW! GAS MASKS AND MANLY GRUNTS! Call of duty: Huge explosion, SHOOT THEM ALl! Time to bomb Africa, and I'm the bomb! Move forward! Same with Battlefield 3 single player and every other FPS. What makes Battlefield stand out is the multiplayer. I'm just surprised this article even needed to be written, then again most people don't know anything unless it's fed to them like Gerber.
I think I played the first 10 minutes of BC1 campaign and when I got BC2 I never started it. BF series=MP with SP tacked on(now, it used to only be MP) Cut DICE some slack, they are still new to this whole SP thing lol
The campaign wasnt too bad in bad company 2. I really liked this part where they get seperated in the mountains and you have to create fire to warm up or you die
Right so they gonna bring out future DLC to SP for the fun of it? yeh ok. Bf can do campaign just as well as any other.
It has a single player?
Well, sometimes I like to get home from a long day's work and just whack-a-mole, so I don't mind
Yeah, i don't mind this from single player. The graphics, animation and immersion will make it worth at least a couple of play throughs
there is something called update , they always can fix the multiplayer , the campaign looks amazing , it looks the best war campaign but the multiplayer is not , maybe because of the lag or the bugs , or both xD ...
ah those were the days, when BF2 had just bot fights as the singleplayer :) and it was enough, cause BF is in many eyes a multiplayer only game :p
Everyone's favorite kind of whack-a-mole!
BF singleplayer: a glorified tutorial. The multiplayer is what people keep coming back too.
cod do nothing but that
i cant wait for the single player!! i gonna play the fuck outta it! same with the MW3 singleplayer!! SP FTW!!!!!!!
At least it's wack-a-mole with a story and a purpose for wacking the mole, as opposed to multiplayer which is just running (or driving or flying) around in circles wacking the moles for no reason except earning bragging rights and points to put towards bigger guns with which to run (or drive or fly) around in circles wacking the moles :P
So they mean this is another Call of Duty clone?(in the single player portion) Funny because Battlefield fanboys are bashing MW3 campaign when BF3 is trying to emulate it.
I already cancelled my pre-order and put it down for Elders Scrolls. The beta made me realize I'm so sick of cookie cutter shooters, i thought it was just COD but it all of them. The ones I have are 95% similar to the ones coming out, new environments but same gameplay. When the urge strikes, I just put in what I already own.
If the AI is stupid or or always does the same thing then the SP has no replay value IMO. I can play Reach and Killzone 3 over and over and have different experiences, trying to replay COD type games where the AI runs on one or two scripts is boring.
COD will always be KING...BF3 is just another jealous cousin
Well, I have to admit there were a lot of problems. Not just the beta glitches. But the overall gameplay itself. It felt very mediocore in my opinion. The maps were terrible, and I don't mind campers/snipers, but when it comes to the point where theres no way around them, then it gets annoying. The guns felt awkward, and sound like crap too. And I was surprised to see NO destruction.
You must of been playing COD, and thought you it was BF3. You can take put the whole Front walls of the two story buildings at the lady two MCOMMS for one. Also try cleaning out your ears, cuz DICE is known for the sound effects in their games they even won an award for BC2. BF3 has awesome sound effect compared to COD who sounds like a PS2 game.
Oh really? Because from what I've heard, the guns sound like crap in BF3. It only sounds nice if you have a surround sound system. What about all those people who don't have them. And don't try to tell me it sounds good, because it doesn't. Also I play lots of shooters, not just CoD. Currently I'm playing Resistance3. Just admit it, you're a BF3 fanboy who is butthurt that sales are going to be flawed for your game. Good day
Sigh, where have the days gone where developers focused on SP instead of pointless MP.
People really seem to respond to it!?
