feels like C.O.D

29 Replies 681 Views Created 04-10-2011

if this beta is the shape of things to come then it's just another C.O.D

the unlocks for a start aren't like bfbc2 "but bfbc isn't battlefield" i hear you say, so tell me please, has all the other battlefield games had this unlock system?

i'm a fan of the two bfbc games and this just feels like C.O.D with kids running around.

i can't even play it now as the screen freezes from the off.
i'm still looking forward to the game though as bfbc has been the only fps i enjoy and although i have some hang ups about this bf3 beta there has been some good things about it.

also i hope that there will be a way to exit a game before the next round starts because one of the things that spoilt one of my fav games BFBC2 was the fact that  when a map was coming up that you didnt like you still had to wait for it to load up before you could bail out.

It has bits that Dice have introuduced, that do say COD

 

- Levelling up

- Tigheter gun play

- Gameplay seems faster - might be more down to size of map.

- The way some people have approached playing the game - rushing in

- Almost got a pick up and play sense to it.

 

But its still Battlefield at heart, and different enough to warrant purchasing both games. Its still battlefield, but it does feel like it has made room to take new fps players, Cod players, or general FPS players under its arm. 

 

But alot of what makes battlifield or bad company is very much there. In spades. 

 

Why the generalisation about COD players being kids. no need to bait. its pathetic. And no need to look down from your horse. And makes you look like a kid.

I can see what you are saying regarding the quicker controls and what not, but in all its really nothing like COD. If you play in a squad, then you will understand.

i wasn't saying its anything like COD. 

 

It is battlefield. And clearly that. 

 

I was just saying that when first booting up the beta, it was clear that Dice had introudced a few things that screamed COD.  

 

But its only a couple of bits.

how the hell can this feed like cod 

 

cod is the same crap over and over

 

battlefieled is all about teamwork and helping each other out

 

cod games are hacked like todays meal and are ***** easy to rank up for example

 

a kid can get to rank 20 within 30 minutes gameplay unlike battlefieled

 

cod games get boring after a while, while battlefieled it dosent

 

and for one last note

 

call of duty games are copied from older fps games, just look around

can you see what you are writing?

 

I seen your posts on other threads. You come down saying COD is what you have said above, you label there players has what you have written. Yet you have just to wrote that, which is in essence what you are shouting against. Its making you look like a fool. 

 

Its not just you, its other people as well. People are getting really defensive. and its annoying. The beta has not lived up to expectations - because they were set so bloody high. But it is still a very very good game that has not innovated over its older games or changed the way we think about milatary FPS. 

 

Its just a game.

 

At the moment people are:


eitehr

1.) blaming all the little niggles and the fact they are having issues on COD players.
2.) Being PC elitist/BF2
3) people are saying you shouldn't compare this is BC2
4) Its only a beta
5) Rush is for noobs.
6)COD players.

 

Stop being so defensive (Coming from the really defensive post haha :) ) and enjoy it.

This game does  remind me a LITTLE BIT of Call of duty. Probably 2%. Thats it. :P

I mean, I've been used to play BC2 (which differs largly from Call of duty) and jumping into the first game of BF3, I couldn't help but notice it's tiny resemblence to Call of duty.

After playing for a while, i completely forgot of call of duty though. lol. Theres a sense of accomplishment in this game, you feel like you're playing with a real SQUAD with #1 objective; destroy\defend m-com stations.

Unlike Call of duty where you "mindlessly"run around shooting anyone you see..

The last good game was MW2 (In my opinion).

Operation Metro was a bad choice for a Beta map too since it doesn't feature the main features that distinguishes BATTLEFIELD from COD; and thats Vehicle warfare & destructable buildings. (apart from blowing up holes on buildings and terrain @ operation metro)

They should've used Caspian border but I guess it's a big download or something :|

Agreed, this is one of my main reasons for actually hating COD. Every fps that has been released since has been compared to it, sooner or later they will be saying Fifa and Gran Turismo feels like COD. :Lol:

owen the king of console shooters style is TDM ;)
Which is what COD is.
BF has changed to become more like a TDM style shooter with rush however it still long way off COD.
One player in BF can't change the whole game like they could in COD.

Personally I feel Dice let themselves down.

 

I don't mind CoD but I've been a huge fan of BF since BC1 and believed its got the best and most distinct gameplay of any multiplayer but the beta just whiffs of Call of Duty via Medal of Honour - its so bad.

 

I can only hope that metro just happens to be one of those disasterous maps and that the final game will have at least something for me to like because right now I'm actually more interested in MW3....which is something I thought I'd never say.

No.........
COD is a TDM style of shooter and latest games allow people to camp and be rewarded.
BF is a more well tactical game which people killing does not help the team at all. Your meant to be protect areas and keep people from coming in and taking objectives.
Control wise it and COD is different. BF feels smooth but with weight or feeling COD has no weight.

Other BF games are far far far more different from this , it more BC2 then a true BF game.

I dont think BF3 feels anything like COD, BF3 is alot more slower paced than COD and as previously said, takes team work to win. Although I havent really seen it yet because every game I am in, people just wonder off doing their own thing, no team support, only me left behind helping out team mates who need medi kits and ammo or reviving......

I don't think the map helps in all fairness.

Simply promotes 'camping' in the subway section for defenders....small corridors + the addition of prone was never going to be a great mix in all fairness!

+ attachments like thermal sites and laser sights are just a bit meh....imo!

 

The game is more like Medal of Honor in comparison to any other FPS, faster gameplay than BC1 & 2....we'll have to see how it plays with vehicles etc before anyone can make any final judgements.

 

People are just to quick to criticise nowadays and always expect perfection, its only a game!

after 3, can we all say beta? 1..2..3.. BETA !!  :Stupid:

 

the game hasn't even come out yet, and with its small buggy little map called 'Metro' along with all the glitches broken mic and people glitching under the map it sure does feel like COD :BigGrin:

 

seriously though, DICE have confimed that this Beta is an old build therefore alot of the bugs and other stuff we are experiencing have already been fixed and as for the 'Feels like C.O.D' bit well.. this is only one map that will probably will feature in the game but can you imagine all the big ass maps with Tanks/Jets/Choppers/Jeeps etc. yeah this game is gunna rock :Sniper:

i can understand your arguement: 

 

Digital foundry posted this though earlier which i totally agree with 

 

"perhaps the real issue here is that the developer has handed in a genuine "beta" when the term has been misused by the games industry to the point where it has become virtually interchangeable with the more traditional "playable demo". However, with a mere three weeks to go until Battlefield 3 is released, this old code is exactly what will be used to judge the quality of the game by the multitudes playing it, which is a real shame if it is indeed unrepresentative of the product that appears in stores."

 

Dice/EA were not clear what the beta/demo was with us. Sure it is a beta. But on both stores, the beta was listed under the word demo. And it took till after release of the beta to tell us how old it was. If Dice/Ea were a bit more forthfright from the beginning saying how old the code is, and what purpose the beta had, people would be probably a bit more willing to accept that the final product will be stella.

 

But no, the general consumer has been mislead once already - by the continuing showing of PC footage. Most people who visit game website knew this, but were worried about the lack of console footage. We didnt see any other than one trailer a month before launch. But to the general onlooker, they saw all the good stuff: That amazing Caspian border trailer. And then we/they were presented with the beta? Its not going to sit well at all.

 

Further more, an infantry only map, with the actually good new tighter and responive controls were designed and released with an other/ulterior motive aside to general testing- to try and win over the general FPS crowd. Its no coincidence. And give credit where its due, the gaming public as stood and vocally said this, despite feeling like they have a bit of egg on there face through a year of constant hyping of the game.

 

Ea/Dice could have majorly drop the ball on this by some real slack and dishonest PR. Its a shame, because the beta, despite some issues, is actually very fun when it all clicks.

 

That may come across majorly negative, i have enjoyed the beta, but i can totally understand why people are upset.
