Battlefield 3 looked boring
It was incredibly boring, All the fun of correcting for tank misfires! It was about as exciting as the MW3 demo (Which fucking sucked), only in the middle of an empty desert.
Remember all those bad ass Multiplayer trailers leading up to Bad Company 2? Lets see some of that. I die everytime they try and show singleplayer for that game, graphics is all the single player has going for it.
I posted this link in the other thread but...
You know what else is boring? My mom!
Seriously though, I thought it was pretty cool. Sure, it's not storming a Russian sub, but for a demonstration of tanks in combat, I was entertained. The drive to the battlefield could have been shorter, though.
Multiplayer's the reason to play that game, also it looked like that may have been one of the first missions which in any story should still be a building up stage of the plot. The exception being MW which is balls out because the story is ridiculous.
I wish they had shown some multiplayer stuff. Yeah the graphics looked great, but that tank sequence was nothing we haven't seen before in previous shooters. We all know the single player is gonna be run of the mill gameplay wise. Show us the good stuff EA. Remember when they did that live multiplayer demo of Medal of Honor? Thats what I wanted here.
Maybe not the best choice for i live demo but it still looked amazing. And for a vehicle scene, which i generally think to be the weakest points of most games, this was pretty good. In the end there is no denying that this game will be huge, especially in multiplayer.
It was a little boring, but a very good way to show off the engine, as I think was its purpose.
On that note, I was glad to see that the actual producer for Battlefield games also kind of sucks as Battlefield games. He should have died at least five times during that demo.
MW keeps trending toward arcade while BF keeps trending towards sim. I prefer sim and the lead up and coms before the battle in the demo were awesome. Looks like the Battlefield series proper will finally have a good sp experience, and co-op finally to boot. Mp up the gazoo tomorrow anyway.
It looked amazing visually and was miles better than the MW3 demo. I think they should have shown more of the multi-player or more of the destruction. I am disappointed they decided to go for the same story type as MW3 with Iran being the bad guy and military operations in European cities, Paris in this Hamburg in MW3. Seems like were in for another "America Fuck Yeah" story.
