I cant wait for this! This will be my first 'true' Battlefield experience, since I've only ever played 1943, BC2, and Vietnam on my 360.

Does this mean they're done with the BFBC stuff?

EDIT: Or is this BFBC, but just titled Battlefield...hmm

At least there's a campaign (even if DICE underperform in that part). The promo art gives me too much Bad Company 2 deja vu so I'm skeptical if it's going to look and feel anything more than just Bad Company 2.5.

It's going to take a lot for me to drop Bad Company 2 for another Battlefield sequel, since I've yet to play a better shooter on the 360.

Hope it can live up to what the hype will surely be.

Have you played Modern Combat? Just curious.

If MW3 drops this fall as well, expect EA to delay the shit out of this.

I don't know man, according to Major Nelson, Bad Company 2 was the #5 most played game of 2010. EA & DICE will still rake in the dough for this game.

Please note that the rankings are based on the games’ first seven days of activity on the Xbox LIVE service and only include games released in 2010.


That whole list is kinda bullshit.

Shitty. Yes.

They aren't going to delay it. This franchise still makes its money on the PC (sales plus servers) and the fanbase there is still incredibly strong. This game will sell like crazy on just that platform alone and all the others will just be gravy.

Also it is unfair to compare this game to Modern Combat. That shit was based on last generation technology.

Bad Company 1 and 2 were fun but they paled in comparison to Modern Combat and Battlefield 2. This will be a true battlefield game.

I have played both Bad Company 1 and 2 and Modern Combat on the PS2 and 360. What is going to be different in this game? Jets? More players in a match? Just curious, never played BF2.

EDIT:I read the spoiler tags and it answered my questions. Looks like the PC people will be happy, sounds like it will be better on the PC.

There are those who said this day would never come. What are they to say now?

I can't either :D I'm in the same boat as you except I've only played BC1/BC, Vietnam and Battlefield Play4Free.

At least there's a campaign (even if DICE underperform in that part). The promo art gives me too much Bad Company 2 deja vu so I'm skeptical if it's going to look and feel anything more than just Bad Company 2.5.


The cover does look similar to BC2, but this is BF3, a whole different game as I've read around. Except the soldier on this cover does not look "cartoony". (Comparison)

I honestly can't remember the last time I felt very excited about a video game :D

Excited for this, but not a fan of people talking poorly of the Bad Company series. Sorry, but they are both great games. You might not like them, but oh well. That's your opinion. Calling them shitty is going way too far. Both were well-reviewed, especially the sequel, and as someone else mentioned, Bad Company 2 was well-received by gamers, as well, as the 5th ranked game on the XBL in 2010.

They were good games no doubt, but they were shitty excuses for Battlefield games. They were basically a Call of Duty game with vehicles. They were nerfed beyond belief. Look at how many maps had almost no vehicles. That's not Battlefield. The only good thing to come out of the BC series was the destruction and bullet drop. We didn't want a single player but DICE insisted and the multiplayer suffered for it. Plus they took things out like the artillery strike and replaced them with stupid stuff like the mortar strike. The classes were chopped up and reduced way too much. Who knows what they were thinking with the helicopters. The maps were no where near the quality of BF2/MC. BC1/BC 2 had maybe 5 good maps. Modern Combat alone had that many: Backstab, Bridge Too Far, Full Frontal etc. Then they tried getting rid of Conquest in Bad Company 1. What were they thinking there? The conquest they gave us was a let down as well. The maps were smaller than the rush maps. DICE made the Bad Company series to satisfy people that wanted single player and people like Call of Duty rather than keeping Battlefield true to its Multiplayer madness roots.

I put in over 200 hours on the 360 version of Modern Combat, 50+ hours on the demo, and 200+ hours on the xbox version. I didn't put anywhere near that much time in on Bad Company. I suspect that will change with BF 3

That's fine. They were not the usual Battlefield games. That's why they weren't part of the main Battlefield series. But to call them shitty games is a bit silly.

Kill Streaks? Nope. Fast matches? Nope. Cheating/Mods? Nope. Work by yourself? Nope. Yeah... I see nothing that says Call of Duty. Essentially, the Battlefield Bad Company series is a series that focus' on the soldier.

They were nerfed beyond belief.


Nerfed. Not sure where you are going with this comment.

Look at how many maps had almost no vehicles.

You must not be playing Rush or Conquest at all or you focus just on Vietnam.
All maps have a vehicle in them. There are only 2 maps I can think of that only has 1 spot is White Pass and Nelson Bay. As for the rest, there are vehicles galore. In fact the latest map pack (#7) contain maps that are essentially tank and helicopter battles.

We didn't want a single player but DICE insisted and the multiplayer suffered for it.

I like a single player experience with my games. Yes, the single player for Bad Company series was sub par at best. But multiplayer in Bad Company 2 is hands down still the best FPS online multiplayer experience. After seeing the Crysis 2 and Bulletstorm demos, I don't see it falling anytime soon. So to say it "suffered" is really a huge stretch.

The classes were chopped up and reduced way too much.


I think the classes for the most part were set up just fine.

I think personally you probably just get worked in the new game vs the old game so you feel to trash a very quality multiplayer experience.

Bad Company 2 was by far one of the best games I've ever played on the 360. Hell, I ended up buying it twice -- once at launch and again after missing having a satisfying multiplayer experience after trading it for Crackdown 2 (what a mistake THAT was, haha).

I do get sick of it from time to time, but second only to Left 4 Dead, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is one of a few games that I've spent playing months at a time without removing it from my console.

Yeah, I would definitely agree that Bad Company is not some Call of Duty clone. That's the whole reason I love the series, because I really don't like CoD's multiplayer at all. I have loved the Bad Company MP, though, basically for the reason that it doesn't feel like CoD to me.

Smaller maps, no jets, no prone.

I think the classes for the most part were set up just fine.

The classes were horribly unbalanced. First of all, every class that isn't the engineer is super fucked by any sort of vehicle. You can get by with the sniper with C4, but any decent tank driver will prevent that from happening.

The medic is ridiculous. That class got the gun with the highest damage, the best accuracy, the biggest clip, the ability to heal people, and the ability to revive people. Not only that, but there is no cons to using the medic, either - iIt still has unlimited sprint at the same speed. Broken.

I think personally you probably just get worked in the new game vs the old game so you feel to trash a very quality multiplayer experience.

Have you ever played Modern Combat? Every person I've ever played BF with has preferred it to the BC series. I think you think you're better than you actually are.

Which again is why the games are called Bad Company and not part of the main Battlefield series. They were trying different things, which obviously worked, considering both games were reviewed well and sold well.

The classes were horribly unbalanced. First of all, every class that isn't the engineer is super fucked by any sort of vehicle. You can get by with the sniper with C4, but any decent tank driver will prevent that from happening.


It's a team game. If no one plays an engineer, you're going to get destroyed by a tank. If a couple of decent people do, you'll be fine.

I think you think you're better than you actually are.


Don't really see what that has to do with anything at all.

Again, it is a spinoff. I actually for one am very happy for no prone. I can't stand camping and anything that promotes it.

The classes were horribly unbalanced. First of all, every class that isn't the engineer is super fucked by any sort of vehicle. You can get by with the sniper with C4, but any decent tank driver will prevent that from happening.


As stated before me by bigdaddybruce, it is a team game. If you have one/two engineers that wont happen. See my mine kills. The squad I play with I play engineer, they play assault and medic... we do just fine on offense/defense, etc.

The medic is ridiculous. That class got the gun with the highest damage, the best accuracy, the biggest clip, the ability to heal people, and the ability to revive people. Not only that, but there is no cons to using the medic, either - iIt still has unlimited sprint at the same speed. Broken.


At the beginning, yes the Medic was broken. Now the Medic is just fine. It never had the highest damage or close to it... people just prayed and sprayed i.e. more bullets = faster kill. The pray and spray method doesn't work as well any more. Accuracy is down too. Cons include ZERO defense against vehicles, short range tough to run with; long range gimped now, outfit makes them stand out.

Granted this is all moot as other classes work way better. From mortar strike onslaughts by four snipers (recon) to unlimited grenade tosses (assault) to a tank going all match (engineer; see any of my games)... all the classes have something crazy you can work with them. In current environment, the strongest setup is a g3 with 4x scope, which all the classes can use. Granted, I keep things fun by going down the roster on what I need to platinum instead as I with that setup is just unfair. If you are good at the game, none of this bothers you because you still will rape.

Have you ever played Modern Combat? Every person I've ever played BF with has preferred it to the BC series. I think you think you're better than you actually are.


No I have not. I have played Battlefield 2 a long time ago on PC though. It was a great game but Bad Company 2 is also a great game. In Bad Company 2, I don't think I am good... I know I am good. Anyone who has played with me can attest to that. I and my squad is ALWAYS in the top 5 on our team if not in the entire match because unlike most people we work as a team and worry more about providing cover/support vs being the guy with the most kills. Again like bigdaddybruce stated, this portion has no baring on how good Bad Company 2 is.

Limited Edition to include Battle of Karkand DLC

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."

-joystiq

That's cool. It will be cool to play all the old maps.
