IncGamers: Hands-on with the first two hours of the campaign.
A title sure to attract plenty of attention. *puts on protective armor and dons some spiffy goggles* This should be amusing :D
all i got to say is http://www.youtube.com/watc... but campaign side yah i have to agree but then again all FPS single players are the same so yah
trolling articles are becoming more common nowadays. I can actually see why the misconception is there if you're a console player. metro effing sucks. crappiest map DICE has ever made. the game would have been perfect if squads were working as intended on caspian border. too perfect actually. well tbh I'd like to see jets get some buff love. no longer get that "oh sh**" feeling when I see an enemy jet flying right at me. I can completely ignore them and I'll never get killed by them on the ground.
Evr....last I checked Jets are Anti Vehicle mainly...I doubt we would waste a 40 million dollar plane on infantry, which we dont.
"My immediate response to playing the first two hours of Battlefield 3’s campaign was (and still is), “do we need another single player experience like this?” " Why didn't the author pull his head out of the ass and think this when the launch day approaced for Modern warfare 2, Black Ops, Medal of honor, Modern Warfare 3, etc ?? got to say: DAMN that screenshot looks SO nice... Wish I had a PC to max BF3 =)
Ever played Crysis/Crysis 2? It doesn't play anything like other FPS's.
I was not surprised when I saw dudes running around with RPGs in a subway, and snipers camping in the tunnels ... Other than having vehicles, Battlefield games and its players are no better or worse than Call of Duty players.
Although I still haven't played the SP campaign in BC2 ( too busy with MP) and most likely will not get a chance to play BF3 SP campaign cause again I will be way too busy with the MP.... I am a little piffed that you do not get to fly the Jet in the SP campaign. That would of been an excellent training ground for "Rookie Pilots"! Nothing is worse than jumping in a Heli or Jet only to have some Newbie Pilot crash 10 seconds after take off!! Kind of hard to bail out when your upside down!
Don't even waste your time on that short 5 hour crap they call campaign on BC2. That campaign marked the end of Battle Field sp saying they didn't want to be like Call of Duty as that sp had nothing but cheap ass action scenes and a story put together by a newborn.
Here's what we've learned during the BF3 Demo: http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... I can't wait for the retail release of the Beta!
That was hilarious. Real game wont be like that ofcourse. That retard walk had me goin.
idk, BF2 had a lot of the same kinds of bugs in the final version. I actually hope funny bugs stay in, but no falling through the ground, that sucks.
Yeah, I have seen all of these in beta, damn funny, specially the "retard run".^^ Now I just ignore them and keep playing. Tretton That was fixed during beta.
you forgot this 1 http://www.youtube.com/watc...
if they refer to weapons damage system i agree its just the health system is too low to fire back first see first kill
Wrong in cod you can get shot in the back, turn around and stab him. That's the beauty of their net coding. In battlefield you can get shot in the back take cover sit on a med pack and ice the guy. Unless they are shooting you with the ump. But that gun is getting nerfed for retail.
So in one one can easily respond quickly with a knife that doesn't actually have to be on the guy to kill him... in the other the guy can be shot with a bullet from a sniper rifle but not die, crouch, throw out a magical health box, maybe start a fire and roast a few marshmallows, pop up kill the guy with a few bullets from an automatic with a scope on it... gee, both options sound so alluring.
The flying sequence is on rails? Really? The game won't let you fly the jet in SP? Maybe this game is just a tech demo for frostbite 2... And framing Iran as the target for a US invasion is just plain arrogant, irresponsible, and stupid.
The SP is also a tutorial. If you can't handle flare, robots, ... How would you be able to handle the full experience? There would be even more complaints if you in the third chapter of SP was put in a jet and assumed you could master it; fly, handle robots, flare, ... all at the same time - "this is too difficult" Re: Iran - we will see what the future brings... Isn't there an election before 2014?
Serious question: Are you from Iran? People these days are so sensitive.
Are you Irani? People these days are so insensitive to other perspectives that aren't their own. Point is, it is easy to say that someone is too sensitive if you do not understand a situation or have a similar perspective as the other person.
But its ok for Russia to invade America in the COD series????
put out a beta. I would of actually bought the game if I didn't play the beta! Arkham City here I come!
Did you even read the article? It only focused on the single player campaign, not the multiplayer.
Ok i'm getting both Batman and BF2 but you seriously just chose batman over BF3? I think you got ur priorities mixed up.
"I would of actually bought the game if I didn't play the beta!" Maybe someday you'll understand how incredibly silly that is. Sort of like how my little brothers used to think New Kids on the Block were cool.
Far too many campers on battlefield!
Too many run & gunners that walk out into the open on call of duty.
that's why you have to be on your guard (I recommend ak47-u with rapid fire)
Is that a problem?
LOL there are no campers in call of duty? worst part campers get rewarded in call of duty with over powered killstreaks.
Kill-cam allows you to you to anticipate the campers next move.
Well, bring a tank next time^^ "Kill-cam allows you to you to anticipate the campers next move. " Same thing in BF..
just another shooter. sick of these games coming out every year. like 50 diff shooters every year and almost no puzzle, good action, jrpgs, platformers, etc. so many genres and yet all everyone makes is shooters. sure they sell.....but ever think they only sell because thats all there is? derp
The series is losing its identity.
There are plenty of other genres of games. It's just that most of them aren't high-profile games that make a lot of money.
One of the reasons that gaming is so populear theese days are multiplayer shooters, there are a lot of gamers out there who does only play shooters.
its true, alot of people play shooters only, and its sad. and the other games dont sell aswell because of the hype of games like cod. as normal gamers i think we want more variety. this gen it just feels like im fforced to buy shooters or nothing
"this gen it just feels like im fforced to buy shooters or nothing" That's your fault, and only yours.
online shooters are kind of a rush so its easy to get addicted. they get me emotional to be honest. pissed off, nervous, excitment, satisfaction, you name it :)
As soon as a game outsells Call of Duty, that will be the next genre that every game company tries to imitate next. God help us all if Just Dance 3 is that game...
There are other games, most of them don't sell nearly as well as shooters. If there is lack of alternatives, you would think that the few alternatives would be more popular. You know, based on supply and demand. Maybe it isn't the demographics, but the games themselves....
That's ridiculous. There are other games. If you ignore them, that's on you.
Want puzzle games, platformers? Download them from The marketplace, or psn store. whatever you have. problem solved...
I'm sure battlefield will be amazing, but after playing the beta I've realized how I'm a lil burnt out on military shooters. I'll get this amd mw3 at a later date.
Dude, I'm with you. *finally get's to use RHCP reference*
Oh yay, another flamebait article, joy to the world.. -_-
It wouldn't matter to me if this game didn't even have a SP campaign. I buy games like this for multiplayer, not single player. Of course the beta also turned me off on the multiplayer, but that's a different topic.
TO SHOW YOU HOW FREAKIN STUPID THIS ARTICLE IS... "What it’s attempting to do, it does well. Extremely well. The issue is that we’ve seen it all before, albeit perhaps not as stylishly presented. My worry is that COD fans will love it"...... And that's just a part of how fuckin STUPID this article.. so they liked it, the past is super fast paced, but since CoD campaign is super fast paced, you have to write this BULLSHIT negativ article..... GTFO....
It's not gonna flop, it just won't shake CoD! We all know that. Judging by the beta it's still Bad Company disguised as BF3.
no probs even if it is so. a cod with better graphics and huge ass maps, jets, and choppers. i like.
Battlefield 3 blow COD out of the water in Graphics... I seen and played both.. Story is by a troll
"Turns out that Battlefield 3's SP campaign is a lot like Call of Duty's SP campaign" Fixed. Battlefield has *ALWAYS* been about it's massive multiplayer. The SP campaign is just a bonus, enjoy it while it lasts (6-7 hours)
What I played (BETA) was nothing like Call of Duty... edit: if they are talkin' bout single player .. then I don't see why thats a bad thin' if they are alike COD campaigns are fun to play compared to badcompany 1 campaign which was boring
who cares if the SP is like COD's,didnt the SP become a non-factor when it was announced that it was only 7hrs?Im sure most people will try singleplayer, but MP is where its at.
Of course. CoD is the big man on campus!!!
I completely enjoy the MW single player story. Ill pick up MW3 at some point just to finish off the story of Capt Price and Soap
All FPS games are trying to copy COD. And this includes battlefield 3, cry me a river BF fanboys.
The Beta was also alot like COD,really hope it won't be like that on the full game.
Yeah. I was disappointed by the lack of vehicles and large-scale destructible environments like BC2.
The funny part to me is that some people are disappointed in not having them in the beta, while others are flat out ignoring the fact that they ARE in the final game. If "not indicative of the final game" ever applied, it sure as hell applies for the BF3 beta.
The only reason people hate on CoD is because it is mainstream. They want to go for the underdog(BF3).
I hate on CoD because it's mindless, not because it's mainstream, but I do think it's sad that CoD is mainstream simply because it's so mindless.
Pulled from the article: "The sniper attack on your precarious rooftop position is particularly dramatic - the boom of the enemy rifle, the slow breakdown of cover and the barely managed fear of your squad creating an atmosphere akin to most memorable moments of Full Metal Jacket or Enemy at the Gates." Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh these moments don't happen in CoD campaigns; and sometimes happen in BF multiplayer. Just saying because they're are big set pieces that it doesn't make it a CoD rip-off. Regardless I'll reserve judgement until I can get my hands on BOTH games.
HAHAHA I'll waste a bubble for this, I love your picture :P
I would say MW1's sniper mission was ideally a similar thing. I was kinda hoping BF3 would be more like an amazing version of BF2BC, not similar to CoD, this is somewhat disappointing. And from what I played of the beta as well, it feels and plays pretty similar to CoD multiplayer. That's just my perspective though.
Battlefield is not like Call of Duty for 3 main reasons: - Its tactical based gameplay is key for sucess. - Large scale maps some w/vehicles (earth,sea and air probably). - You need to have pacience and sharp eyes.
have people even read the article itself? it doesn't talk about multiplayer at all, it's only single player. the whole set-piece after set-piece does sound like COD.
Don't forget why BF3 added team deathmatch as one of the multiplayer game modes, and that is to follow his greatness - king COD, fast paced infantry only action.
