Battlefield 3 campaign will be more scripted, less sandbox style

DICE's Patrick Bach has stated in a recent interview that "sandbox games are hardcore, boring, hard to get into and they are not very popular"

What was that bullshit about not copying the competition? yeah...

It's popular because it's the only garbage game developers put out these days. A sandbox FPS for consoles would have been badass.

I just hope that "linearity" will not be suddenly praised like the second coming in here just because BF3 will be like one. I remember clearly that KZ3 is bashed and criticized by many on this site for being scripted and linear. it's not THAT hard really to remember because it's just like less than a month ago!

just lets be cool here shall we? devs have their own ideas of what is best for their games. DICE thought that THIS will suit BF3 better, so be it! I just can't wait to play the game. KZ3 is linear but does that strip it off from being a great game? NO and NEVER WILL BE! a great game is still a great game be it sandbox or not. lets just get over with this "linearity" thing and judge games over how well they are executed and gameplay because those are what make or break a game!

Holy S***. That's one big fail. Now they are trying to copy COD now. NO NO NO NO NO!!!

Cod has always been linear. Have you seen the Battlefield 3 Episode 3 clip? Looks very linear... /s

Battlefield: Bad Company 1 had the best campaign between 1 and 2 because it was open world, but this campaign could still be a thrill ride. Its too bad they didn't release Bad Company 1 on PC.

Sandbox games that are made sandbox for the sake of being sandbox are bad. Because some suit at a board meeting says: "we need to make it sandbox because sales figures blah blah... unique selling point... blah blah... 3D... blah blah"

What I don't understand is: "sandbox games are hardcore, boring, hard to get into and they are not very popular"
er... no. Being hardcore has no relation to sandbox at all. Same goes for being hard to get into. And for the last part... gta?

BF2 didn't even have a campaign, people played BF for the MP not SP so any SP is a bonus..

BlmThug2754d ago

Well I Play A Game For SP Campaign, The MP Is A fun Distraction So I Want A Game With Non Linear Gameplay

I don't even remember BF2142 having a SP campaign if it did i didn't care for it and Bf2 def did not have one other then a you vs. drones warmup.

People are gonna complain no matter what for console because they don't get 64vs64

I cant remeber playing a SP for BF1942 or vietnam
