Battlefield and Call of Duty: A Detailed Analysis of Each Franchise Pt. 1

MP1st - "I went in with one mission: figure out what these games really are, what they try to be, and what they compromise to get there."

The story is too old to be commented.

Great comparison of the two games, still deciding on which one to get or to get both o.o

aksmashh2317d ago

I'l probably get both, battlefield first because its released next week and wit COD it looks like more of same which isnt really bad thing because MW is always fun but unless theres a good release day deal il delay buyin it for couple of weeks

As I've always said, both franchises satisfy different needs, so I play both for different reasons.

JonahNL2317d ago

I applaud this article, but in the end it shouldn't be necessary. It's common knowledge that Battlefield relies on "realistic" gameplay and teamwork, whilst Call of Duty is more about fast, arcade like gameplay. I like both styles.

Criminal2317d ago (Edited 2317d ago )

I'd argue that in terms of realism, Counter Strike is the most "realistic" (of course, there's the army games also, which would be on a different level). But, in between the 2 in question, you're right, BF is more realistic.

Nitrowolf22317d ago

BF is more realistic, but I tend to think it tries to not be to much and add some fun to it

Mister_V2317d ago

@Nitrowolf2, Yes, I think DICE does a great job of combining realism WITH fun! CoD does this just as well in their own way. I guess they have two different formulas that both equal the same thing :)

From my limited time spent with the most recent games of both franchises, I've deduced that the main difference here is Call of Duty has funny Russian accents while Battlefield has funny French accents.

I have a question people,

Is the Back to Karkland pack only available if you pre order or is it as standard in the limited edition?

Criminal2317d ago

I got the same question, so to play safe I'm gonna pre-order.

SITH2317d ago (Edited 2317d ago )

For the first few batches that stores receive, back to karkland will be available for no additional price. Just like the maps that came with BFBC2. If you wait a few weeks, you will not find a back to karkland limited edition. So yes it is standard in the limited edition, preorder or not. The exclusive content for pre order is the weapons pack, SPECACT skins, and dog tags.

GroundsKeeperJimbo2317d ago

I believe the Limited Ed. is only being shiped for pre-orders. But if you can get one that someone didn't pick up, it should contain the code. <- Again thats an assumption.
