[GI]Game Informer March Cover Revealed: Battlefield 3 - Page 8

post #71 of 80
BF2 > BC2 because it has bigger and more maps, more vehicles (some of which are jet fighters) and 64 player servers. BC2 is good because it is new and shiny but BF2 is a great game. I remember when it came out the maps were so big and detailed that I'd need to just drive around on them for a while before I could get comfortable with them. The only thing I dont like about BF2, and it is a big complaint, is that is is way too hard to start out in that game. It takes forever to unlock anything and there are not many things to unlock.

Nubs be nubs. What can I say. OCN is full of "gamers" that cry more than they actually game.

So ya 64 is very doable, just the point of will they do it?
A what?

You know, I'm pretty sure I know what they are doing.

If you noticed, BC and BC2 were limited in certain aspects. 1 being no prone, 2 being no jets, 3 being smaller maps and max what 32 players?

These were all done on purpose. BC franchise was made to take on the COD type gameplay.

The limitations were done so they would be implemented in BF3, to help separate the games in style and ability. Obviously since BC2 and BF3 are running frostbite 2 (right?) it needs certain things to help stand out because I would imagine the graphics may tend to look somewhat similar.

HOWEVER, BC2 maxed out on my PC looks amazing, no complaints there.

thats what dice has been saying all along. They have always said that bc2 is not battlefield 3, and it is a console offshoot with a different infantry focus. We were lucky to even get bad company 2 this time around. Its a console brand, while battlefield is their flagship.

Actually, they were lucky they decided to bring BC2 to PC. It sold equivalent to the 360 and the PS3, individually not combined. Probably makes DICE and EA wonder if the should have brought BC1 to PC as well.
