It doesn't matter who created what, it matters that I and many others already own CoD so why are we going to buy a game that is the same thing -.- And for somebody like me who is tired of CoD (I only own one of the games and I'm tired of it) you aren't going to get my sale by beating the dead horse farther for your own profit.
this is where you are mistaken.
Vehicles are actually piloted by the player. As in you need a chopper and a gunner. The chopper doesnt pilot itself, nor does the tank.
Battlepoints are not kill streaks, as they are earned from killing, and doing the objectives required in the match. which allow you to unlock better guns, call in airstrikes, or use them to call in a tank for you to drive. So you can spend battlepoints to a flak jacket, to survive longer, or spend it on an RPG so you can take out the armor the enemy spent their battlepoints on. Or spend them on an airstrike to hit some bunkered up enemies.
It is actually pretty damn similar to what was in frontlines fuels of war. Which as you gained points in the match you were able to unlock higher tiers of skills and abilities.
The game is focused on Vehicle and infantry combat, not infantry combat, and it is 32 players, not 16 players. With maps way larger than COD maps.
If you were to compare it to a game, i would suggest you compare it to bad company 2. Which oddly enough, guys at kaos studio worked on battlefield 2, and a mod from bf1942.
When was the last time you say a group of infantry driving around in a jeep only to get hit by a tank and destroyed in a multiplayer game of COD? How about a tank shooting a chopper out of the sky? How about a chopper chasing a jeep with 4 guys inside across the map while the guys in the jeep try desperately to dodge rocket fire from the chopper that 2 guys are in, 1 the pilot and the other the gunner. If you cant come up with one, well i think you need to go sit in a corner.
Some people are just plain ignorant of the facts. So im not sure where you get the idea that their concept of MP is identical, because i sure as hell dont recall piloted vehicles in any recent COD game, other than what 1 map in WaW, and it was just a tank. So go ahead and skip the identical game, we dont care lol. Wallow in your own stupidity on the subject.Edited by Vhati - 1/31/11 at 12:10pm
