Judging by the beta only it seems like you can't have a true battlefield game on console.


?

does this mean i should stick with COD?

why is everyone so quick to jump to conclusions? operation metro is probably one of the only maps that's infantry based. you haven't seen nothing yet. i wouldn't expect the graphics to be leaps and bounds beyond what they are here considering it comes out in less than a month. they'll probably just be working on ironing out the bugs, but honestly i'm not complaining. i've been enjoying the shit out of it already and the graphics aren't nearly as bad as some are making it seem.

nah, just means that the console version, as crippled as it is compared to the pc version, is still better than the full cod experience on consoles


on the real, fuck this fanboyism... get what your friends be playing, cod or bf3

Chill out you little fanboy.

Im just saying the graphic looks mediocre.

Lmfao, Dice stated that the beta would not include all graphical features. There's still a lot of polishing and bugs they need to tweak. Other than the polishing and tweaks that need to be done I don't have any issues with the graphics.

If you want easy knives/dogtags run around the outskirts of the map and you'll most likely find a couple bitch ass snipers in the bushes, lol.

apparently you can play conquest on caspian border in the beta. but you need a password to get in, & the password changes everyday. rumor is the map will be unlocked for everyone to play later in the beta.

had high expectations but was severely let down. This is not the game that will kill COD.


how did it let you down?

lol, i guess im the only one here who enjoyed the beta so far.
kills are rewarding i think, you have to work to control your recoil & stay on target. and just the way the guns sounds is satisfying. ps3 graphics arent shit, but definitely not as epic in the pc gameplay trailers they've released.
this rush gamemode is kind of annoying though. as the next section of the map is unlocked, the defending team usually just camps the choke points as the attacking team comes through. razz

but like when you're going into the subway, theres people just sitting there w/sniper rifles. it pisses me off. im not saying it should be easy for attackers to get to the mcom stations, but it should be easier to get into the next section of each rush map.

also, has anyone else's screen turned blue when they respawn?

I've been playing for quite a bit today on PS3 and so far I feel like the game deserves maybe a C+ or B-.

I hate what they've done with the menus, the menus from Bad Company 2 were much better and easier to navigate. Just changing the scope on your gun is such a pain in the ass now.

The flashlight is stupid and has way too much of a negative effect on your sight, even from far away.

I don't like that the weapons available to you is based on which side you are on. Why can't I use my favorite gun on both sides?

I can hear everyone talking, regardless of if they're in my squad or not, and there is no way to mute them that I have found. That is really annoying. Hopefully that is just a beta mistake.

A regular match feels like hardcore to me. It seems like after 1 or 2 shots I'm down. Overall, the weapons balance seems off.

I know this is just a beta, and just one map at that, but right now it seems to be BC2 with slightly better graphics. I don't know that they've improved it all that much.

I'll probably still pick it up, because it's a better FPS than any CoD games in my opinion, but overall the beta hasn't blown me away like I was hoping it would.

That tunnel gets camped all to hell. If you are on a squad that can't break through, you're pretty much fucked.

I also don't see an option to change your kit prior to a round starting, am I missing something, or is that the case?

played for 3 hours so

first off

!. The graphics look alright(beta only) aint complaining.
2. Too many fucking campers hiding in bushes and waiting to kill you where you respawn
3. The guns are weak as fuck, yes they may have a shit load of the them but c'mon (too much recoil)
4. Can't customize my class (yet)
5. While your playing all of a sudden you change maps... like wtf this isn't inception dawg
6. Rounds are like 30 mins long, fuck that
7. Oh the kill cam is always on the ♥♥♥♥♥s face that killed you, so you can't see where the fuck it's hiding!
8. The mini radar is small as fuck and expands all the map... ♥♥♥♥♥ i just need to see who is around me 50 ft
9. Knifing is slow as fuck, No joke
10. The grenade throws are weak as fuck, ♥♥♥♥♥ gots a crippled arm or something( committed suicide like 10 times because of the crippled arm b)

campaign will only be the hot shit, not multiplayer

I want to see the world burn

Kinda what I'm saying. It's just hard to explain. It just works better on pc. Players are just less stupid (PC gamers usually play the game as a unit more often than console players) and it gives you a better experience.

I blew myself up throwing a grenade from a bush because apparently my throw isn't strong enough for the grenade to break through a few leaves

I went prone in a bush to try and save myself and throw a nade and it got stuck right above me in the bush and blew-up cool

I'm already burned out on the map, I think I leveled up to 14 and now I'm taking a break. I hope they fix some issues and then maybe give us one more before release. PC guys are getting codes to get into servers with Caspian Border sad

I also hope that as they fix things, they make patch notes available so we know what gets fixed.

I already miss the Bad Company 2 menus, changing aspects of your kit was just so much simpler in Bad Company 2. I also HATE that just because you unlock a new scope for your gun, it automatically puts it on for you. Tell me I unlocked it and let me decide if I want it on or not.

Do you happen to know if there's a forum thread on the EA servers for people playing the beta on console? I'd be interested to see what other people like/dislike so far.

wait what? are you talking about the different sections of operation metro or did you actually change maps?
but its true about the grenades, impossible to aim them. i doubt i will ever get a grenade kill(excluding suicide). sad

i got several nade kills, but most happened when you are in the subway on metro and you can throw them into the rooms and hallways that get packed with enemies.
