Can someone tell me why they like the Battlefield games? How realistic is the game compared to other shooters?


Scaled battles. Camping not rewarded like other FPS. Bullet drop. Destruction of environments. Vehicles. Great community when you hit a mic'd person unlike CoD/Halo. Multiplayer (at least in the past) no advantage glitching like other FPS i.e. CoD.

Those were just some of the reasons I like Battlefield that much more over any other FPS as it relates to multiplayer.

Heads-up: I just received my BF3 beta code via email.:bouncy: Check your inboxes


I activated my LE online pass last week...

I should get the email today right? Too bad you can't just launch it from inside the game like they done with some halo beta's etc...

Honestly, I'm not sure how that'll work for you. I activated my pass on launch day and received a email a month or so back telling me to keep a eye out for my beta code. Maybe try contacting EA if you dont get it within a day or so.

I'm kinda happy they're not doing this through the MoH menu since that game is long gone now.

I like it because to me it just seems so much more realistic than CoD... I loved Modern Combat for the PS2! I played it so much that at night when I closed my eyes I could still see the blue and red dots that make enemies and friendly!

Question is the karkland pack those maps?

It's four maps from BF2 and I'm not sure if they confirmed which, other than Karkand. My guess would be Sharqi Peninsula, Gulf of Ohhhhhhhhhh-man, and Jalalallallabad.

So I just spent about 1 hour with the BETA and my initial impressions are very favorable. A few things. I am playing it on the 360 so I am going to admit I was disappointed at first. The graphics are still top notch but after seeing all the PC footage I have to say I am a bit jealous. Textures do not pop in right away at times and there are a few funny animation glitches but overall the game looks great...although I would say Crysis 2 MP looked almost as good on the console. The guns are very realistic...lots of recoil when standing and just holding the trigger is a quick way to end up dead in a firefight. The Beta also has no vehicles so I cannot comment on their handling. The movement is fluid but takes some getting used to...you vault over things instead of jumping which is great except you can't shoot when doing it (again more realism). It took a good 30 min to find my bearing but it is great. The destruction is solid but the level you play on does not really show it off till you get to the last part of rush. The explosions feel real and the bi-pod weapons are the bomb.

This was always going to be Day 1 and it looks to be awesome. My only warning for the console players is be prepared for an initial sadness in the slightly downgraded graphics (still top 5 for consoles though). I may need to buy my new computer (was planning on it for Diablo III) early to try this out on the PC.

The PC graphics are so silky smooth - I'm really torn on what platform to get it - my computer will probably run it, but I still like playing things on my couch....ugh, decisions, decisions.

They confirmed them some time ago.

"... the original Wake Island, along with Battlefield 2's Strike at Karkand, Gulf of Oman, and the Sharqi Peninsula."

If anyone has a ps3 code for BF3 beta for today and you don't plan on using it, don't let it go to waste PM it to me and I will gladly put it to use....;)

PS3 owners don't get a code. It just shows up in the PS Store.

"ON PLAYSTATION 3, THE BETA WILL APPEAR AUTOMATICALLY ON THE PLAYSTATION NETWORK STORE. ON XBOX 360, IT WILL AUTOMATICALLY APPEAR ON XBOX LIVE MARKETPLACE. ON PC, IT WILL AUTOMATICALLY APPEAR IN THE ORIGIN APPLICATION'S FREE GAMES PAGE."

So if we wait for a Kmart deal we'll still get the map pack? Is that correct? Debating on doing that vs ordering from Amazon...

I don't think you need the MoH disc. I'm pretty sure BF3 beta will be in the store tonight when all the content updates. I hope you don't need the disc because I traded MoH in a long time ago. I'm 99% you don't need it though.

Nice to see the comparison video. The only difference I've noticed is the frame rate obviously being higher on PC, but it's not a big deal.
