OXM UK: "With our Battlefield 3 review cooling on the windowsill, we have plenty of ideas for the follow-up. Battlefield could still be the best first-person shooter on show. Here's how."
then you go make it
Go back and make BF3 just a MP online game like BF1942 and BF2 before it. EA made DICE do a SP and Co-op out of sheer greed thus taking away valuable time to work out MP bugs and glitches. BF3 MP released all by itself would of been 10/10 BF4 is like 10 years away so lets just enjoy BF3 and all it's Frostbite 2.0 Glory!
Today's gamers, always looking for something new. Man, games take 3 to 4 years to make ( side from rehash COD ). Seems like lots of news on a big game before it comes out. Then when it does come out. It's not even a week later before people move on to the next biggest game to come out. This goes on game after game.
More like todays gaming journalist. I'm enjoying Battlefield 3 to it's fullest without a thought about what it's potential sequel will be like. To me the multiplayer in BF3 is about as good as it gets and already a 10/10.
I've been gaming for a long time, and I can't stand this generation. It's like everyone became a critic overnight, and it's not 'the internet age,' because that's not new anymore. Everyone is entitled to an opinion, and I'm not saying no games are free of criticism, but it's like people this generation wake up with a motivation to complain about something new. A lot of times, people say a game is bad because it's not what they wanted it to be, instead of appreciating what it is.
Yep.... it's like they are constantly looking for more. Never satisfied with anything. It's like the very week something comes out. It's old news days later and forgotten about for the most part.
Keep it off consoles. It'll be a 10/10.
Damn LOL...saying that on N4G.COM will get you shot LOL
Maybe, but battlefield originated on the PC. Every iteration of it is essentially a different game on the PC compared to the console counterpart. Hell, BF3 PC compared to BF3 console is almost a different game. Battlefield has always been a PC franchise. The only reason it hit consoles this time was to take a shot at CoD, and while I feel BF is the better game, it really didn't slow it's competition down in any way.
I don't need BF4...but I wouldn't mind seeing an aircraft only map similar to BF1943 so I can go somewhere where I know I can get practice time in and not feel like I am wasting tickets crashing, etc...
Add LAN and bots
What I would like is new multiplayer modes. Just like them to mix up the game modes a little. There modes are fine but it would be nice to see DICE experiential a little with different modes. Also a better single player but I am old fashioned like that. I prefer playing single player over multiplayer.
For the love of gaming it's just a number. BF3 is great and with it's deep online which will take months to complete it will only get better as more and more feedback gets to the devs. It has the best graphics for a mutiplatform fps The story should be much much better, I am still waiting on one of these military fps to do a proper 10-12 hrs story,but why should they web. Most if not all of their install base wants to play their game for MP So to get a 10/10 do a proper story and don't show your people the game in the beta when it's not ready because people will forget it's a beta and make up their mind that this game will be bad Improve graphics a little bit Do the story with bad company 1 cast where the story was good and funny, I know BF4 is not bad company but single player can be about anything anyway And I don't think these big sites are ready to give games with just great MP a 10/10 now if you have a great story to go with that than there is a chance
I have a bit of different perspective. Battlefield 3 is to EA what RAGE is to Id. They are not an exercise in design, they are elaborate demonstrations of their respective graphics engines. They serve to show a basic understanding of what their engines can do so that they may be licensed by other developers. Analysis and criticism of something like Battlefield 3's game design is a bit of a waist since the effort on EA's part went into pushing the technical side of the game rather than pushing the elements of shooter design.
One difference EA will keep it within EA, first game with a new engine will take a hit. But reading about Frostbite 2 a lot of work has gone into making tools to build content - dynamic lightning helps turnaround time. I expect lots of great DLC, Vietnam to BFBC2 was great. Return to Karkand sounds great (more destruction, new vehicles, new weapons, ...) And DLC has one extra feature, fully downloaded and installed on hard drive. Size and speed!
I didn't like the single player campaign but I'm hooked on multiplayer. This game is a 10/10 to me with my only complaints being not being able to quit between matches and limited class customization and customization in general. It's so fun playing in a match where everyone is focused on the objective, especially when you're in a squad.
How about you do something innovative? I found VERY little difference from BC2. They couldn't even be bothered to add new game types. They should have just called the game Bad Company 3.
And how should BF "innovate"? I'm very curious as to what you think could be done to make this fps game "innovative"? And keep in mind the current consoles limitations.
There is more innovation than you imagine Lots of lightning related Tactical Flashlight, Lasers, Muzzle flash, Scope glint, ... New gadgets and how to level up to get them. Varied environments and special effects affects gameplay. Then render it all on with good textures and performance.
Is that truly innovation, adding more equipment and weapons? Because CoD does that along with every other sequel known. varied environments? Like Levels with rain or snow? Hasn't that been done? How about levels with high winds that could blow debris around? But could current consoles handle that and support destructive environments AND keep the multiplayer count as is? render it all on with good textures and performance?? I really don't understand what that refers to.
@maniacmayhem You skipped my lightning related part... why? Do you agree it is true innovation? Varied environments - Please mention one kind of environment that is not in there somewhere? (woodlands, desert, beach, sea, city outdoors, city indoors, rural, mountains, fields, ...) - Day, night, rain, dust (snow? I have not seen it yet) => You can not play all "maps" in the same way And - Detail (Debris DOES blow around, even on console!) - Effects (particles - smoke, BF3 MP beats MW3 SP) - Destruction (Actually on the level of BFBC2, you could not destroy all buildings there either, especially not the large ones) The equipment in BF3 does something but not in itself. Radio beacon - mobile spawn point (air drop for squad) Soflam - scan for vehicles and tag them, but other team members need to take them out. The gadgets _requires_ team play to work properly! Since you bring up weapons (I did not), the weapon levelling is quite new. Re: Rendering - it looks like a great flight simulator when flying - it looks like a great tank simulator when driving - on foot moving slowly it looks great with great detail on natural and human made objects - great draw distance IMHO the rendered environment beats Skyrim - it just looks right. Take a look at the presentation from Geforce LAN 6 http://www.geforce.com/News... I would say a lot of innovation has gone into the Frostbite 2 rendering engine. Other companies will have to scramble to catch up before next generation consoles arrive. And then there are sound...
Make it BF2143.
