[KT] Battlefield 3 Resumes Hostilities With Call Of Duty

Battlefield 3 Resumes Hostilities With Call Of DutyFor a few years now, the people at Electronic Arts have been trying to make a better ice cream sundae.

It's hard to improve the ice cream sundae, of course, because it's already a sure crowd-pleaser. Some might even question why, though obviously ice cream sells really well and that's probably one of the main reasons why.

It's tough, though. How do you make a sundae that's better than the ones stacked by the competition, the competition who sell about five million new ones in a day any time they put out a new flavor.

The ice cream sundae for video games is Activision's Call of Duty. And rival EA's trying once again to top it, though this time, they're trying both impressively and weirdly.

They're trying with Battlfield 3, a game I've seen twice in the last couple of weeks and can finally describe to you now.

Very disappointing so far

very disappointing so far? Wow. They are showcasing the single player aspect, because, as you know, there hasnt been a single player campaign in BF before. This game will be epic, just wait and see. Personally I could give two poops about the single player, BF is all about the Multiplayer, and that has the potential to be great. Oh, and its shiny too.

COD is not popular because of it's single player. BF3 will not be popular because of it's single player. BF3 will dominate because of its HUGE beautiful maps and 64 man battles.

This guy is disappointed because his computer will never run it, How can you be anything but ecstatic especially for a company that is actually treating the PC with respect and giving it all it deserves, I cant wait.

I personally have zero problems with the single player being similar to COD. COD4 single player was epic. The only problem I have with the COD series was the multiplayer. It lacks teamwork and the killstreak awards are somewhat annoying. Give me a cinematic in your face single player and then a BF2 style multiplayer with updated assets and weapons and I will be a happy man !

I think any FPS that has a mission in an urban middle east setting will feel a bit like CoD, since CoD4's single player had a large chunk in the middle east. That said, US marines fighting in the middle east is nothing unique to CoD and that's the only similarity i saw.

Considering this is from Kotaku, I wouldn't put much stock in it. As well, seeing a couple of 5 minute glimpses of single player action has almost zero meaning to the full scope of the SP campaign, and it has absolutely NO bearing on the MP aspect.
