StarHawk OR Battlefield 3

19 Replies 1,043 Views Created 08-03-2012

I've been thinking for a while now.  Is BF3 my fav? Or is SH my fav? 

 

There both games that are a battlefield experience but what do you prefer?

Haven't played the full release of Starhawk yet so impossible to answer really.

I loved BFBC2 (which is better than BF3 overall) but there are element to BF3 I like (mainly the score system).

Warhawk was a very special game to me as it introduced me to alot of people I now consider friends (**vomits in a corner**) so Starhawk has alot of expectation to fill, which I do not believe it can meet.

They both had the potential to be "perfect" games for me personally but BF3 let itself down, Starhawk has elements to it that will let it down BUT unlike BF3 there is still time for LBI to address them before release.

Currently I'd say Starhawk but that's mainly due to the ultra slow development of patches for BF3 on the PS3 resulting in unbalanced weapons and prior lack of comms. If more companies actually ran Beta's to iron out bugs rather than releasing a buggy demo that they call a Beta I doubt I'd have this opinion.

BF3. Way more balanced. Each base cannot be entered....you spawn safely in a base and you have multiple ways out of it - it's all very tactical! In Starhawk if you enter a game where you're base is being ravaged- then you'll be blown up the second you leave your pod lol.

bf3 is better balanced, its fun for a while but can become frustrating. Starhawk is a lot more fun, but the balance issues are ruining it at the moment. Once that is addressed this game plops all over bf3

I have to agree Bilbo I think SH is also a lot more fun even with its balancing issues. I remember BF3 had balancing issues when it first came out too which took a few patches to fix.

 

I find BF3 was a bit boring after a while, I also prefer playing with/against SH players it seems to be a bit more laid back.

Agree with Bilbo and Zorak too, BF3 is technically stunning, accurate and has much to like, BUT too much time is spent in pre/post game menus or respawn menus, which have all the atmosphere of a fridge door.


Starhawk is mental, fast, colourful, original, and unrealistic. Excellent! FTW SH > BF3 :)

Very true, I remember it used to take a long time to actually get into a match on BF3 and even longer it seemed on Bad Company 2. Although I really liked the Vietnam add-on the Huey was a joke in it as it could be shot down by a medic's machine gun.

 

The vehicles in SH are far more fun to use and you dont have to stand around for ages waiting for them to respawn like in BF especially the helicopters and planes only for some chump to run in front of you and steal it, then proceed to crash it or if its a helicopter fly it backwards into the ground.

Balanced? Safe spawning? What game are you talking about? BF3 is as liniar as it gets with a "large" map. Unbalanced weapons, even maps where one team gets advantages over another, such as vehicles and positions. Have you ever played rush? After the first pair of hcoms, the other team can just sneek behind and tear your ***** up. Heck, the fact that they do NOTHING against people who spawn camp vehicles, such as jets flying in and shooting down a guy who's just taking off.

BF3 > SH

Simply because there are more problems with SH than there is with BF3.

They listened to the "hardcore" fans too much and made the game unplayable for "casual" and beginners. example being "normal" flight from WH.

I wanted this to be a great game but.......

I'm one of the newbies on Starhawk, having bought the MP and got the SP on PS+.

 

I have to say, I've had some of the worst MP experiences ever in Starhawk. The base ravaging in this game is ridiculous.

 

I joined a TDM game on Relay where the score was 153 to...wait for it...3!! Yes, 3!! I've never come across that kind of score disparity in any online game, not even Uncharted 2 (haven't played 3 online).

 

I've been playing BF3 for ages (and Bad Company 2 before that) and never came across any of these problems. It's definitely much mroe balanced game where the subsequent patches have improved balance issues.

 

Lightbox has said it's looking into the base ravaging issue, so hopefully something will be done. I find it to be a really frustrating game to play, and yes, I know part of that frustration has to do with the steep learnign curve, especially when tryingto fly hawks, but when you can barely get out of your pod to begin with, you know there's a problem.

What are you people talking about how long it takes to get into a game on bf3?

It takes barely any time at all :S

Starhawk on the other hand has a long load time to start up including accepting a terms and conditions time on every single startup.

Then when you find a game it'll take an ages to load into the map :S

Played neither, but SH is cheaper, and not too far behind so I'd go with that.
