so I installed BF3 today. Heres a short summary of my experience Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Inserted Disk
Great, I have to install Origin, whatever
Installed from two disks, so far so good
Patching, 4.5GB patch uh ok....didnt know I was playing an MMO here
Finally, I click play on Origin, wait....Chrome opened, what the heck is Battlelog, wheres the game
Ok so I have to download another addon for this Battlelog before I can even play a match, kind of lazy DICE
Finally I start joining a server. didnt see any graphics settings tab so I'll try that later
Ok so I'm in, wait 4 classes? what is that
I'll just press the Caps Lock key to see the map and spawn points. ok that doesnt do anything, lame
Pick Assault, sprint towards a jeep, get there at the same time as someone else and end up driving
Drive out of the base, controls feel similar to driving in BF2, but everything is so hectic on the screen. Too much like 2142 not enough like BF2
Get blown up by a tank very far away, I guess thats similar to BF2 in ways
So now ill just be auto-respawning, nope, got to pick my spawn point every time, cool
Rinse repeat, nobodies coordinating just reminds me of Modern Warfare
Exited game, went to look for BF2 discs
seriously what the hell is this, because I was under the assumption it was a sequel to Battlefield 2, not Bad Company 2
so pissed right now

Give it a chance. I came from bf2 also, and love bf3. It's strange at first, but you just have to get used to it.

Yeah... I was lucky because I also played a lot of BC2(despite what some of you may think teamwork helps A LOT in that game) before I got into BF3 so the transition wasn't as bad(it is a step towards BF2... just). It can be a lot of fun, but if you come straight from BF2 I can imagine how frustrating it is.

I have the wireless version Xbox controller. I did try using my regular ole' keyboard and yeah I was like a fish flap'n out of water. I'd have to get used to a keyboard. Oh, and yes the mouse is more accurate and precise when shooting.

The keyboard I think is a disadvantage to the controller, but the mouse side of things completely kicks the controllers butt from a speed and accuracy point (mostly speed). And when you're in a vehicle of any kind, the "free look" is a painfully slow joke with a controller...

Yeah, when I first played and I drove through a fence I was like "Woah!" when now it's like meh. Bf2 was so strange and simple in comparison.

People need to stop crying over the fact that BF3 let them down, Its nothing more than a glorified BC2. BF2 was light years better...yada ya.

Whats the point of game innovation if all people want is the original?
It wouldn't matter if they came out with a re-skinned BF2 instead of BF3 as it is now. You people would find something to cry about. thumb.gif

There's very little innovation with BF3 though. In fact many features were completely taken out that were in BF2. These features are what people are complaining about.

Why take steps backward?

Yeah, I remember a similar thing(a bit like being able to shoot through walls in COD4).

The thing is, they haven't innovated in respect to teamwork(which imho is what made the BF series so successful). Compared to BF2 or any previous game I would argue that they have gone backwards majorly here, and it isn't exactly helping with the quality of the game. It's like they have gone half way with the teamwork specific features and just not bothered with the other half.

I consider BC1 & 2 to be a part of the innovation between BF2 & 3. The innovation from BC2 and BF3 should have been much larger than it was. But progress is progress.
Could you tell me what was taken out of BF3 that was in Bf2? I played BF2 recently and it was honestly quite anticlimactic as I was lead to believe it is the best game in the Battlefield series on the forums here.

I'm still in the dark sorry. From an outsiders viewpoint I don't understand as to what aspect of teamwork have they gone back on?
I guess what I'm saying is. How much more team oriented could they be?

I don't think on that video that that person put the settings res to 800x600 it's likely 1024x768 or maybe more. I bet if I lower it to 800x600 and lowest settings it will be like Crysis 2 for me meaning around 15 FPS to 30 FPS. I can play the game even at 10 FPS I have beat games that had around 10 FPS before. Since if it plays around 5 to 10 FPS on 1024x768 or more on lowest settings then it will be better on 800x600.
