People are buying into the hype. Not this guy. This game is worth about $20 if that, yet tons of fanboys will continue to buy it. How sad.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.4Oct 26, 2011Call of Duty is always about yourself. You do good in the battle and nothing else matters. Battlefield 3 is also about yourself, but youCall of Duty is always about yourself. You do good in the battle and nothing else matters. Battlefield 3 is also about yourself, but you depend on your team for results as well. As an example of this, In Call of Duty, everyone goes their separate ways and try to ring up as many kills as possible during the round. In Battlefield 3, you head in all different directions, but somehow, you and your team always end up in an area that is a "choke point" where the members from the opposing team meets you and members on your team... and that's when the battle actually starts.
I've played all of the Call of Duty games from the original to Blops. I've also played every Battlefield game from 1942 to BF3. When I play Call of Duty, I play a few rounds, I get bored, and I go do something else. With Battlefield, I play a few rounds... and then I play a few more rounds... and if I still have time, I may go find another server and play some more. The element that sells it for me in Battlefield is the "Teamwork" aspect, and Battlefield 3 checks, circles, and underlines that box.
So why is Battlefield 3 so much better? Visuals, Audio, well designed maps, very well planned unlocks, and a sense of realism that has never been there in other Battlefield or CoD games are all present in BF3. I keep coming back for more because the game is satisfying in a way that no other FPS game has ever been for me. The multiplayer experience is second to none. Just be warned... if you're looking for a quick blast with an SMG and expect to get tons of points from run-and-gun tactics, Battlefield 3 is NOT for you. Patience and accuracy is rewarded. Reckless actions are met with failure 9 out of 10 times.
Really decide what you like about FPS games. If you like running around with a quick trigger finger, go play Blops or MW3. If you like careful tactics and team work, BF3 will do it for you easily.
Oh yea... the tanks and planes are good too.… Expand
