Wow, Battlefield is definitely in the lead.

I'm getting my copy tomorrow afternoon, and am really looking forward to it.

But in defense of CoD, the shift to Modern Warfare definitely gave them a new lease of life, which was then f*cked up by Treyarch's awful Black Ups in a similar way they ruined the WW2 theme by following the awesome CoD 2 with the graphically backward CoD 3.

But as a side note, I'm rewatching Band of Brothers and I forgot that CoD 2 had Carentan in their multiplayer mode. That was some clever thinking IMO, that shows that CoD series was trend setting at a time.


Considering they also borrowed an entire sequence from the film Enemy at the Gates that they are rip-off con artists lol.

Battlefield 3 shits on MW3 in pretty much every factor.

The storyline was not strong in any of the games to be honest, the Battlefield 3 one felt very realistic, and was for that very reason a bit stale at times, but stuff like the jet mission looked and felt awesome. The campaign was a bit difficult in my opinion at times, and I died a lot of times even on the lowest difficulty. Cant even imagine what a pain it must be on hardest.

In MW3 the storyline was crap as always, but did not grow stale due to the fact that they were throwing at you around 20-30 kills per minute. I mean, jesus fuck, the A.I in the game is terrible. They abandon cover and perfect positions in favor of running into your firing line and missing with their shitty aim. Cannot claim it to even have felt all that hard on the highest difficulty.

In the Co-Op department its just rehashed shit in MW3, and Battlefield 3 had a more interesting version of the campaign imo, but none kept my attention further than the initial run.

And in multiplayer BF3 shines above pretty much anything. Its basically a FPS game, a tank game and a jet fighting game in one package. A well done package.

MW3 felt exactly like, uh, MW2. And it looked like MW2. Seriously, they should have gone the same path as Halo: Anniversary, and release a standard retail version of the game with campaign and multiplayer which works with the last installment of the game, and release just the multiplayer maps as a separate map pack for the last game just so people dont have to pay 70€ for what is basically a map pack and a Michael Bay orgasm package.

Played my brother's Modern Warfare 3 and the only real think that I enjoyed about it was the Spec Ops missions and Survival Mode. Don't have Live, by the way. I'll probably get Battlefield when it drops down in price a bit.

Personally I liked both games an equal amount and will not choose one over the other. BF3 is an excellent battlefield simulator with brilliant team tactical play whilst MW3 is a fun to just pick up and play when I feel like it. Although I agree with previous comments that MW3 felt just like MW2, only I actually preferred MW2 (the campaign and the multiplayer maps were better on MW2 in my opinion). Of course the MW series hasn't actually progressed since CoD4, whereas BF has improved a vast amount.

This all just my opinion of course, I'm sure the CoD/BF haters will rage at me expressing my own opinion and say I'm full of shit
