IGN - Battlefield VS. Call of Duty: By the Numbers

IGN - Battlefield and Call of Duty – the biggest, bloodiest shooters on the market - are constantly competing with each other over hardcore shooting fans' love, dedication and money. But for two franchises that launched within a year apart back in the early 2000's, their paths to current stardom differ wildly. As we prepare for Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3 to go head to head this fall, let's take a look at the hard stats that got both of these juggernauts to where they are today.

They forgot Battlefield Vietnam for Bad Company 2 DLC

-Mezzo-2847d ago

Nice catch, It's weird that they missed such a high profile, well received DLC.

evrfighter2847d ago (Edited 2847d ago )

they also forgot secret weapons of ww2, and road to rome.

and Special Forces not Euro Forces was bf2's main expansion pack.

euro force (not forces) and armored fury were just booster packs.

IGN just went and showed that they are now employing incompetent writers. HHG you gettin this?

god look at all those activision dev's tasked with pumping out maps. So much for having a dream of making video games.

How is that by the way? I've heard it was fantastic, though I haven't done much research on it. Is it like a huge amount of maps and Vietnam era weapons and stuff? Is it worth the cost?

BattleAxe2847d ago

Its ok, but the camping is out of control since theres alot of vegitation and trees to hide in and around.

It's quite good in my opinion. Each map has it's own type of game (whether close quarter, long rage, or vehicle combat) But it's nice to play vietnam every once in a while to get away from all the scopes. Everything is iron sights except for the 3 sniper rifles. It's nice to play every once in a while in my opinion.

RaptorGTA2847d ago

I had fun with it tho I was dissapointed with each map only having 3 bases for rush mode. I don't feel the maps were as well made as the bc2 maps. But that's my opinion. I still enjoyed it and play it once and awhile.

-Alpha2847d ago (Edited 2847d ago )

It's by far the best use of $15 for DLC, IMO. The above comments sound like they thought it was average, I really think it was exceptional. Everything from maps, to weapons, to pacing is varied very well. Nothing is left untouched or forgotten.

The work put into it is amazing. The setting and lush vegetation is what I absolutely adore.

What I really love are the maps. There are 4-5 and they are all very distinct from each other, lush in vegetation. I enjoy those kinds of maps over the urban ones in most shooters. The variety is touched upon in all bases: long range, CQC, and the use of vehicles, everything from boats, to milk trucks, to tanks. Simply driving through the maps is enjoyable and the vehicle warfare is varied perfectly. That's what I love most: Just being in the game. Just seeing the variety of action happening around you and the 'Nam setting is worth the price

It is much more difficult to see enemies in the setting at first, but now I have an eagle eye. They tend to blend in more, but you'll adapt

No negative comments about BFBC2 vietnam here. Great DLC for $15

The should add a section of "Number Of Free DLC Released" to see how that goes.

Shackdaddy8362847d ago (Edited 2847d ago )

They didn't show BF2:MC also.

Plus they didn't include all the games for CoD like CoD:Finest Hour, CoD:Big Red One, CoD:Roads to Victory, CoD:WaW:Final Fronts, CoD:Modern Warfare: Mobolized, and CoD:WaW: Zombies 1&2 for the ios.

They just picked the successful CoD games...

SixZeroFour2847d ago

they added road to victory, mobolized and zombies 1&2 in the "number of mobile versions reeleased" section

Shackdaddy8362847d ago

I see now. They are still missing a couple of failed games though...

Hufandpuf2847d ago

they only put MAIN games in. BFMC was a BF2 port to consoles.

RyuCloudStrife2846d ago

apparently you need to take a second look at the list

This war on MW3 vs BF3 is as worse then 360 vs PS3.
All it is is both sides trying to justify why they are buying one game over the other...

CrimsonEngage2847d ago

I can't understand why people still give IGN clicks if they hate IGN. Don't go there. It's obvious they are biased assholes.

Dart892847d ago

Flame war incoming.I'll stay out of this one :D.
