Anyway I think bf3 is a good game, especially when compared to the new cod games. Dont get me wrong MW1 and MW2 were decent i loved them, but mw3 was clearly recycled garbage, it was so obvious it was just mw2 in a new box but somehow they made it awful. Killstreaks all being equal probably the most glaring. And dont get me started on Black ops 2, another PoS game.
The only things that bug me about bf3 is weapons all feel the same when you shoot them, theres like no variations and they tend to feel boring and sound bland. Sniper rifles dont feel powerful either...a 50cal sniper would be a good addition.
Things id like to see in bf4: better sounds on pretty much everything, tanks, ac130 etc. I also think they could do more with players when they get shot, its boring when everytime you die you just slump to the same side everytime. They should do it like say you get shot in arm, you drop your weapon, get shot in leg you drop to the floor. I remember seeing in bf3 early videos some soldier gets shot and then his friend drags him to safety.
Implement these in bf4 and ill happily drop 400 hoirs gametime like i have done on bf3.
Yeah BF3 seems good compared to the other trash we are given now a days but by the standards set over the last 10 years it really isn't a good game at all. It isn't fun, it isn't competitive and the entire time I play it all that ever seems to happen is random occurrences that leave me asking what just happened and how did I die? Never before have I ever been frustrated by a game so much. It's too casual and too easy to kill and be killed.
Sure the graphics are great (except for the horrible colour filters and sun FLARES) and the physics are good (when things actually blow up) but nothing about the game stands out and like you said the guns feels weak and are all too similar (which is something COD guns do). In BC2 you felt like you had a machine gun in your hands and they behaved that way. They all felt different and behaved different. In BF3 they don't at all. Sure they act different but they don't really feel like it. It's more about choosing the looks of your weapon in BF3, which isn't a good experience because they aren't at all accurate and are all far too zoomed in, weapons don't look like that and ACOGs don't sit on the rearward rails of AUGs, they sit on the front or you'd smash yourself in the face every time you fired the weapon. It's called Steyr eye. Sniper rifles don't feel like sniper rifles at all, whilst they felt perfect in BC2 and the attachment options were realistic (no stupid red dot sight on a bolt action rifle), yet they felt the need to ruin them.
I'll admit I only have 300 hours in BF3 (because I hate playing it) but I had over 600 hours in BC2, more in BF2142 and more again in BF2. And honestly I didn't have anything bad to say about them except the hit boxes in BC2 and the mortars because overall they were good games. BF3 just wasn't a battlefield game and it shows by how divided everyone is about the subject. No 6-man squads, no point in being in a squad, spawning is botched, maps are botched, vehicles are botched, weapons are botched, no commander, no squad tools, no UAVs, stupid mini map that gives away your position, lock on weapons on everything, OP AA, recon class being nerfed, I could go on and on. Game had so much potential and still has and just turned out to be a huge lemon.
Sure some people still love it and think it's great but what I don't understand is why they blindly defend the game instead of simply acknowledging how much better it could be if it appealed to those that enjoy it now and everyone that used to enjoy older battlefield games. Because the older games catered to everyone unlike the new one.
I will give credit where credit is due though, new railroad map is beautiful and a great map. Borders like all BF3 maps are a bit too cramped, the sun flares ruin fighting from some objectives to another and para dropping ruins flow but I do really like it.
I know BF4 has massive potential but I seriously doubt it righting the wrongs BF3 did especially with it being $60-70 for the game, $50 for premium and then extra money for the micro transactions. Paying over $120 for a game they control as much as they do is ridiculous. Release mod tools for it and I'll pay that much plus more but we all know that will never happen.
