After listening to all the rediculous hype from Battlefield fanboys about how BF "destroys" COD, I finally decided to pick up Bad Company 2 the other day. Seriously? This is the game that has been getting so much hype? . .


  • The graphics are terrible.
  • The guns feel terrible as well. Terrible sound design, terrible feedback and weak rumble (almost on Uncharted 2 levels). As much as you guys may hate COD, there is no denying that CoD has set the industry standard for shooting mechanics. CoD's guns feel perfect. But this isnt so much a comparison to Bad Company, as it is simply pointing out how unpolished BC2's guns are compared to CoD. Everything in the game feels like its made out of cardboard when you shoot it.
  • The character movement is nowhere near as polished and fluid as in CoD, especially black ops. It feels like you are on a boat, or on roller skates. (which is funny because this was one of the things i've heard BF fanboys make fun of CoD for :lol: )(which is also weird because you dont even feel yourself running in BC2).
  • ZOMG teh destructable environments! Lol, refer to my "made of cardboard"comment.
  • ZOMG, teh vehicles. They are not polished at all, nor do they ad anything relevant to the gameplay. Basically, they dont need to be there. They are there for the sake of being in there.
  • ZOMG CoD just rehashes every year, and never does anything new....From what im seeing, Battlefield 3 looks like the exact same thing as Bad Company 2, just with better graphics.

Sometimes I really dont think people even know why they hate CoD so much.

First of LOL @ comparing BC game to a main BF game. Next up, poor graphics......yea an CoD is running on what? Id Tech 3 :lol:. Bad sound design....holy **** the sound design in BC2 is absolutely brilliant. Vehicles don't hold any relevance.....what in the hell guy? I mean I could go on and on.

I feel the exact opposite of every point you made. guns are much more realistic in terms of sound and recoil, graphics are miles better on bfbc2 (atleast on pc anyway), much more balanced because of the lack of killstreaks and also much more complex and polished game mechanics because of the presence of squad based teamwork. The destruction also adds alot to adaptive gameplay by players to make each game interesting instead of in COD where you just rush to the same point and go through the same route.

I would take Modern Warfare 2's graphics over Bad Company 2 any day. If you mentioned black ops, you would have a point, but BC2 is unaesthetic, with flat textures. The game literally looks like its made out of cardboard. And people were hyping the destructable environments? Please. Infamous 2 and Killzone 3 had more impressive destructability. Maybe if the game managed to have Modern Warfare 2 single player graphics (which are underrated on here) while doing all of that, I would be impressed.

And reguarding the sound design? The guns ALL sound the same. :|

They sound (and feel) like pea shooters. Every single one of them. Not only that, but they have really weak rumble feedback almost on Uncharted 2 levels. Every single gun in the game sounds exactly the same. Even the tanks.

Looks pretty good on my PC, sorry it doesn't on your console. It's sound design is breath taking. Many hardware sites and magazines use this game to test audio for speakers and such. Bottom line is, BC2 is much more advanced than CoD and that's a fact. Whether you want to take notice is up to you. You diss the destruction, but let's stay on topic shall we. This is b/w CoD and BC2 not Infamous. You can't even shoot a **** coffee cup in CoD. The objects are all static...it's pathetic.

Someone has to counter the 10's of "why battlefield 3 is teh best gaem evar, 10/10 AAAA, CoD is finnished" threads that are made every day. The amount of Battlefield fanboyism on this website is disgusting and the unwarranted elitism is vomit worthy at this point. System Wars (as well as the internet at large) has become BF fanboy paridise. They are starting to become the most insecure, annoying comunnity of gamers on the internet. Just remember, im in the minority on here. For every ONE thread like this, there are 100 other CoD hate threads.

Alot of the people who bash it, dont even know WHY they bash it. Ive seen some of them say "ive never bough a CoD game, and I never will!". We get it, you hate things that are cool and popular, and you want to appear "different" :roll:

#20 Posted by Stevelovessony (208 posts) -
Well i never played bf but it looks way better than what your describing
#21 Posted by 26whitewolf (330 posts) -

BC2 graphics are better even than MW3 that hasn't been released yet. Textures on PC are fine, and even on consoles looks better than sub-hd crap.

No way a quake3 based engine is better than Frostbite achievements.

COD graphics sucks, and bashing BF graphics won't make it better. Its actually pathetic. Even MOH looks better than any COD game.

Another one of these thereds, geez.

I hate COD because they do nothing to innovate the series and BF is always different and the graphics are better. Heck even MOH that came out last year has better graphics. It seems like you need to watch the new BF3 trailer in 1080p because that alone will prove you wrong.

#27 Posted by 26whitewolf (330 posts) -

BC2 its not a full realistic game, but its at least better than COD on this aspect (and every other). The guns feels more real than those on the modern rehash series. The pace, the movement, the teamplay, everything is better.

The recoil on cod games is the worst ever. Its all laser-like for players like the OP who can't aim. Games like KZ3, MOH, hell even Breach has better recoil.

#28 Posted by tomarlyn (20145 posts) -

I have a big problem with your vehicle and destruction comments.

  • The Apache can totally oblitorate the advancement of attackers in the right hands, and when a tank rolls in at the right time it can be a nightmare to defend your objective.
  • Being able to create my own entry point by blowing a hole through a wall can save time and get me out of trouble in certain situations, destroying a building gives attackers one less place to hide and regroup.

I think you need more time to get it. I like COD too.

We're stating the faults that CoD has had for years and hyping a game that actually makes changes, changes for the better. Insecure? About what? Annoying? No one is more annoying than CoD fanboys who act like their game is perfect and supreme. It seems CoD fanboys are the insecure because their game finally has true competition at the casual market, while still maintaining the core market.

It's cool and popular and that's the reason we hate it. Perfect logic. That's the only reason someone can ever bash popular, isn't it? It's impossible to have a legitimate complaint about something that has a truck-load of faults.

Using Bad Company to represent Battlefield as a whole is like using Mario Party to say the platforming games suck.

His first FPS is probably COD, I don't blame him.

#34 Posted by StrongDeadlift (5158 posts) -

Yet with everything you mentioned, it's still leagues beyond CoD.

Also? Battlefield on consoles? Lulz!

ChubbyGuy40

Which is why there has NEVER been an AAA Battlefield game on Metacritic or Gamerankings, yet BOTH CoD4 and Modern Warfare 2 are 94 on both sites. (Not to mention Black Ops scored the same as the highest scoring Battlefield game on BOTH sites ;) )

Oh whats that? You only count gamespot scores? Well fine, there is ONE AAA Battlefield game on here(Bad Company 2) and 4 AAA CoD games.

You were saying?

You guys can scream "teh salez dont mattah" all you want but what Battlefield fanboys fail to realize is that the games are ALSO more critically acclaimed than the Battlefield games, and I can almost PROMISE you the same will happen with Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3. MW3 will get more critical acclaim around the board. You guys do seem to forget that Modern Warfare is an AAA franchise.

Seriously, I have never seen this much unwarranted arrogance/elietism from one group, when they havent even earned it :lol:

#35 Posted by AndyAlfredo (1388 posts) -

Please tell me you are joking, especially about the vehicles.

Anyone who thinks vehicles don't add anything to the gameplay has not used one correctly before.

And you might want to change your sig. The UC3 beta ended awhile ago.

I agree CoD gets hated on way to much around here. All of a sudden Dice hypes up how the new battlefield is gonna have a few perks on the PC version and some hermits are ready to worship them as Gods. Lets call battlefield what it is: a me too wannabe CoD clone that's just not quite as fun.

Graphics, sounds weapons and the gameplay is all subjective. But are you serios when you say that BF3 looks the exact same as BF:BC2?

You are right. I miscounted. That is the ONLY AAA installment of the franchise EVER, and it is NOT from this generation (not counting the late 360 port, which doesnt even have its servers up anymore, and wasnt AAA anyways).

I find it funny that TC thinks BF fans are annoying when CoD Fanboys make at least 3 threads per MINUTE. about how "Call of duty Is the most supreme" "battlefield inferior to call of duty" "CoD is perfect FPS"

CoD is one of those M rated games that kids play to look Badass and wise to street or whatever.. its not even in the same league as battlefield. the attitude of CoD fanboys sickens me, lmao very sensible person on earth knows that BF is much more realistic and has much better graphics than CoD. Sure CoD has a market too (the 12 year olds) and its known for its unrealistic but "rewarding" (yeah you get a prize for installing the game as well) nature.

you cant compare these two games because they are aimed at different audiences (Cod : 12 year olds/11 year olds / Battlefield : Hardcore FPS players and everyone else older than 12)

Compare Battlefield's user scores to CoD's on Metacritic or Gamerankings. Tells a whole different story.
