[EGM]Battlefield 3 Lead Platform Switched to consoles mid-development - Page 10

post #91 of 288
Eh, we already knew this though. Console optimizing isn't very easy after releasing the game. However, many of the maps in BF3 really suck. If BtK is anything like the original BF2 maps, I will play those maps exclusively.

I hate playing on maps that very CLEARLY made just for Rush. Rush is a terrible game mode and playing conquest on narrow maps is just facepalm worthy.

The maps I like are Kharg Island, Seine Crossing, Operation Firestorm, Canals, Caspian Border. That said, Seine Crossing is too narrow but atleast it has some nice long range fight areas around the map. Op Firestorm is by far the best map imo.

However the vehicles are superb, gunplay is fantastic and the game sounds AND looks great. I only paid 35 euros so I'm satisfied with what I have received.

[QUOTE=bigvaL;15531840]No. 560's won't max the game 100% at 1080p with that CPU or with any cpu. I can max the game with my system (a hell of a lot faster than a Q6600) but the FPS are not constantly acceptable at all times.[QUOTE]

Correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't the 's mean multiple 560's

I was happy with BF3? There was so much wrong with the PC version, still not patched.

-Lack of dependancy on teamwork.


Tbh though, my favourite maps in BF2/BF2142 were of the smaller, more infantry based kind (camp gibraltar + city maps/karkand).


As for the teamwork aspect, when you join a squad that knows what they're doing and share the same thirst for teamwork, all the tools are there gameplay wise (except for a proper command rose) and its brilliant. Using a MAV as your squads personal recon drone as they make their way around maps is pretty fun.


*que "in mw3 you call in the uav...in BF3, you ARE the UAV!!1!*


The majority of the time though, not so much. Hopefully people get better/more clued up about the game and start to play the game in its best light.


But yeah, for a game that was "pc lead", "console lead" is quite evident in many places.
Exactly^

The Command Rose in BF2142 is superior to the one in BF3.. this, along with many other aspects of the GUI illustrate how DICE was focused on conosoles... over PC gameplay.

Otherwise, why would the compass-rose communication tool be so "kiddie".. why there are no horns in vehicles, why the interface & changing of weapons & squads is absolutely lethargic & slow. None of the games interface is made with a Mouse in mind, but layered panes for people with gamepads to maneuver.

BF3's gameplay is great... ,everything else in BF3 is a step back from what DICE normally distributes to the PC die hards.
You can have fun nitpicking, I'll have fun playing the best game to be released in quite some time.

We can both be happy that way.

Ha, tell that to all the problems I'm having. I'm at the point where I'd rather have the BETA back because I didn't experience any issues with it. The Retail is extremely buggy.

That's odd. I HATE operation firestorm. I like Caspian Border, Seine Crossing, Grand Bazaar, Kharg Island, and N. Canals.

The worst 2 maps are Operation Firestorm and Operation Metro. Just bannish the Operations already.

I'm currently loving Metro on 64 player Conquest right now. The meatgrinder is insane. You either get grenade/rpg/m320 spammed to death or you manage to sneak behind them and mow em down. Metro Rush only blows at the first stage.

no surprise there... blame it on EA. corporate hogs wanted to compete with MW3 so bad they heavily insisted the release date and not to push it back. i know DICE really wanted to please PC gamers as much as possible, but with EA in control of everything... well... all hope is lost.
