A little heavy is a little more realistic to me. Although a lot of what kabob complained about was getting stuck on objects, which once you got used to things you could move through pretty easily. Hell the other night on Black ops I got stuck on a wheelbarrow, lol.

I would be more interested in this if they allowed more mapping of the controls. I just recently picked up the BC2 Ultimate and I haven't played more than 10 minutes of the offline because I am one of those people who shoots from the bottom buttons only and can not get used to the top buttons at all.... Game seems epic as far as feel and gameplay, just can't play it that way.

That was part of it, but just how the characters moved across the screen feels like they're on rails or ice skating, it's very jerky.

? I shoot from the trigger buttons on BC2 every time I play.

COD definitely has a more fluid flow to it, but the BC2 movement is fine to me and seems more like the heaviness would be a little more like how you'd move with all that gear on. COD is more like soldier parkour with 200 pounds of gear. Don't see that movement on BC is anything to really complain about too much unless you're being really nitpicky about it.

Hmm. Not the best description. If I spend money to make my car handle like it's on rails, I'm not saying I want it to handle jerky.....just saying.

Who cares really. I like a game based on how good it is, not how many copies it sells. For me, BF is a deeper, more realistic game. I just love how every game seems different and I seem to learn new tactics, etc even after I've played for 6+ days. Plus Destruction!

Oh, and we've been rocking XBL parties so we always have up to 8 communicating. 8/12 aint bad

To me, COD seems like speed skating. I prefer the weight and gravity effect. Adds yet another layer to the gameplay. You can't just twitch and win if someone sneaks up on you

That's another thing. If I'm having a bad game or a laggy match, at least I can still blow crap up, lol.

To be honest, it never gets old! I could kill guys through bricks and watch jeeps fly in the air doing flips all day long

To each his own. I like the way that BC feels compared to COD. COD feels too light and cartoonish for me. By my way of thinking, a guy carrying that much weight should move slower.

Oh and D2.0 is just awesome.

Am I the only one who is kind of disappointed to see prone added now?

It may have something to do with your character carrying a couple hundred rounds of ammo, few grenades, kit consisting of rpgs, mines, defib machine, parachute, etc. COD is much more realistic with people running 30mph and dolphin diving off balconies carrying just as much crap.

COD is a much smoother faster paced game than BC2. I think that is a lot of the difference in appeal. There are a lot of extra button pushes with BC2 over COD for things like spotting and BC2 does have the most irritating habit of letting your soldier get caught up on anything more than 1 inch tall. They really need to fix that if they want to match the smoothness of COD movement.

I thought it was in BF2?

Anyway, I will refain from judgement until I see how its implemented. There's going to be some catch...I know it. I would doubt you can just lay in a bush all day and snipe without being seen
post #44 of 16243
D2.0 is one thing, bodies cartwheeling in the air is another. The animation of the dying is also nice to see. I like "holding the throat" one. Not to mention the audio. BC2 is probably the best audio I've heard in a war game.

It might have been in Battlefield 2 but not in BC2. It was a limitation of the Frostbite engine, but I guess that is something they've added for Frostbite 2.0. It was something it seemed everyone complained about with BC2 but I liked the way it played without it.

Yes it was in BF2.

One thing about them adding jets mean more SAM sites around flags/mcoms. Hopefully something like BF2 that had a lock on with a 2-shot cycle. Jets/choppers shouldn't have flares that auto-deploy, they should make the pilot do it.
I hope they bring back conquest full force. BC2's was kinda lacking due to the maps I think.

And I agree, the audio in BC2 was just amazing.

I think the improvements they are going to make on D2.0 is going to have to do with buildings that couldn't be dropped, and the way that buildings were dropped in BC2.
Still not a bigger rush than shelling a building with a tank and killing guys on the other side of the wall as it blows out.
post #47 of 16243
Oh man. I'm so glad they are making another Battlefield game. Battlefield 1942 was one of the first online shooters I really got into in my late teens. When I was a junior in college we did a lot of LAN parties in the computer science lab. We'd fill up the 40 computer room and do a lot of 1942 and BF2 matches. Lot of fun.
post #48 of 16243
Looks good.

? for you guys playing BC2. Is it worth picking up at this point. I see many comments about how intricate it is and do not want to spend all my time frustrated and getting crushed. I am looking for a change from blops and figure BC2 could get me prepared for BF3
post #49 of 16243
I remember firing up the desert combat mod for 1942. That was awesome.

I have always felt battlefield was the best shooting game. Battlefield 2 on the PC was just so much fun. I hope they keep the same formula and just add to it for 3.

It will take you a few days to learn, but there is still an active group that plays here at AVS. Add a few of those guys (see the BC2 thread) and you'll be up and proficient in no time.

Its not complicated, its just a deep game. You can use (or not) different strategies as much or as little as you want. If you play with the group, I can almost guarantee you will have a blast. You play solo, you may end up with a bunch of bush wookies (snipers). You have to give it some time though (meaning a few hours). Its not COD, and once you realize that, and play it as such, you will almost certainly come to appreciate it for what it is.

I'm sure others can chime in..

And to the group, I haven't played since xmas, I think my timeout is over, I'm getting the itch again! 17 ranks more til 50!

I wanted something different from COD all together and BC2 is so much more fun. When you start playing it's going to get fustrating. Your going to compare Blops to BC2 and that's going to make it even harder. It's not the same game at all. It more than just run and gun. It has everything a war setting has. From driving tanks to flying choppers, to boats and jet ski's to taking down building, and so much more. No perks to get in the way. You like real war audio? Well BC2 will deliver. You can join us any time.

Thanks guys, I am really looking for something different than the twitchy shooter. As long as it does not have the hit detection issue of blops all is good. Gonna look for a cheap copy this weekend.

Be sure to buy new. Otherwise, it will end up costing you $10 for an online pass...

I am excited for this one. I enjoyed the squad play in BFBC2. Graphics could use some work.
post #56 of 16243
hopefully you can link the squads up.... because FPS MP are soooooooo much better when you get a bunch of people that you know playing together and communicating..
post #57 of 16243

Electronic Arts will unveil Battlefield 3 this March.

The publisher confirmed to the media it will host an unveil event for the game on Mar. 1, 2011, taking place during the week of the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. Additionally, EA says it will also have new game announcements as well as hands-on time with many upcoming titles, including: Shadows of the Damned, Alice Madness Returns, Kingdom of Amalur: Reckoning, and Crysis 2.

Those who purchased the Limited Edition of Medal of Honor this past fall received an invitation to the Battlefield 3 beta. Details about the beta's release date have not been announced.

Battlefield 3 is expected to ship in 2011.

Be sure to check back with IGN for all the latest from GDC.

Although EA has yet to officially detail the contents of the upcoming Battlefield 3 limited edition, this rather official-looking image has surfaced on Gamersmint. According to the poster, the LE version (all first-run copies of the game) will include "Back to Karkand" DLC "at no additional charge." The add-on includes four maps from Battlefield 2 "re-imagined with Frostbyte 2," the upcoming sequel's new engine, in addition to new Achievements/Trophies, unique rewards, and weapons from the previous title. Those that don't get the LE will be able to buy Karkand "approximately one month after the game's release."

While these details aren't confirmed, they certainly fall in line with EA's many other "Project Ten Dollar" offerings. We're bound to find out exactly what EA has planned for the LE in "late February," according to the EA Store.

Absolutely can't wait and will get it on PC first then might on a console as well Here is to hoping there will be very large maps, improved team play and coordination, better balancing, no dolphin diving, vast weapon options and attachments...
As far as the COD versus Battlefield discussion it all really boils down to preference. They are vastly different games.
