Battlefield 3 Co-Op May Have Just Vanquished MW3′s Spec Ops

Gamers Xtreme: "Now in my own opinion, being a beloved fan of the COD franchise and still am, I have something to say. If anybody has actually seen footage of this game, whether in HD or not, you would be hard pressed not to state that this is the most next gen looking game in the history of gaming, especially for FPS shooters. However when comparing this co-op mode to Spec Ops in the Modern Warfare series, I can’t help but feel that Spec Ops now seems a bit out dated and well…overly bland."

In terms of co-op I don't think that there will be much between the two but multiplayer is where Battlefield will win outright.

MW3 ain't got shit on BF3

One thing MW3's co-op does have is split-screen.

Some won't care, but I love having friends over for some local co-op, so that does make Spec Ops pretty appealing to me.

I'll probably get both games regardless, it's just too bad BF3 won't have any split-screen action.

peowpeow3087d ago

Alot will care. Having split-screen option is always good :)

Prime reason I've always loved COD, it always has split screen, something BF has never offered. I really wish it would though :\

Anon19743086d ago

I'm in that boat. I was quite disappointed that BF3 won't support split screen co-op. The split-screen Spec-Ops was my favorite thing about MW2.

I'll most likely be getting both as well, but I bet you anything I'll be playing a while lot of Spec-Ops.

with all the info and videos that came out 2day about battlefield 3 COD is dead R.I.P COD 10.25.11

raWfodog3087d ago

Now ain't your comment gonna look real silly if a 'dead' game beats out BF3 in sales? Don't get me wrong, I'm also looking forward to playing BF3 but MW's history proves that it's not down and out yet.

^Couldn't have said it better myself!

"EA has stated that the co-op mode will have a fully fleshed-out storyline separate from the campaign."

sweet, i just hope it's something that isn't just an after though with a story that doesn't matter.

Oh jesus here we go again.

iamnsuperman3087d ago

expect it for a while now. Apparently some people have enough time on their hands to debate which one is better, which one sucks, which one...... Apparently gaming isn't enough any more and we must defend our purchases.

Jacks_Medulla3087d ago

I, for one, think it's great. The competition between the two is only making the games better. I doubt Battlefield 3 would even have a separate co-op campaign if it weren't for Call of Duty's spec ops.

iamnsuperman3087d ago (Edited 3087d ago )

@Jacks_Medulla But the problem with this competition is the mindless defending with no constructive criticism. Just saying MW3 sucks and BF3 is the best game ever (when they haven't come out yet) isn't helping and is giving the image of gamers becoming whining children

iamnsuperman= epic win for both comments!

raWfodog3087d ago (Edited 3087d ago )

Bubble up+ on both comments, iamnsuperman. This new generation of gamers reminds me of what is currently wrong with our society in general where no one can be civil and tolerant towards other peoples choices and decisions.

It's not enough to just enjoy what you like and what you're doing. Now you have to put down what other people like or the things you aren't interested in. I blame the parents for all this 'positive reinforcement' on their young childrens fragile minds and egos :)

I don't really think the co op in this is better then MW3 spec ops, it just looks boring. But I have to give multiplayer to BF3 because it just seems so much better but that is just my two cents.

3GenGames3087d ago (Edited 3087d ago )

This. BF3 is the better game, but spec ops if it has missions like MW2 will be hard to beat because of the number of missions. And this survival mode, plus the number of maps it's on. But a pretty much 2nd campaign with a friend is hard to beat, too...I dunno, we just have to experience both and decide then I think.

I'd make this a bigger deal, but co-op in spec ops from MW2 after playing all the mission just was something I never went back to. So I don't consider co-ops game changers, just nice bonuses. Although this is more like zombies in comparison, which BF3 to us doesn't really have something like it.

Jack_DangerousIy3087d ago

CONSIDER YOURSELF VANQUISHED!! Seems a tad theatrical lol.

But I can't wait for some Battlefield!!
