I disagree.  That is all.

I was disappointed in the sense that I wanted to see a multiplayer match, but that was the coolest tank sequence I've seen in a video game.

They didn't show the most intense action scenes for the demo but meh, the campaign isn't the draw for many.

Heresy!!! I need a 'block posts by' feature.

p.s. What's a snoorfeast?

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.

Yeah, it looked great to me.

Your mother is a major snorefest... :P

Snoorfeast....? Wat. A feast consisting of snoor?

I can't believe that they didn't show live footage of the multiplayer. But instead they gave us a linear and fairly boring tank mission, ah well at least it looked pretty.

The game looks amazing, but that demo was boring. 

#15 Posted by Redbullet685 (6025 posts) -

I thought it looked pretty awesome.

#16 Posted by Seppli (10251 posts) -

Mind blown. Looks even better than I expected. Albeit I was hoping for MP gameplay and not a SP tanking mission.
 
Either way, SP will entertain me once or twice. MP will entertain me forever. These tanks are gonna be dope!

If you go to battlefield for the singleplayer you're doing it wrong....

#18 Posted by PenguinDust (12450 posts) -

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.

#19 Posted by NegativeCero (2976 posts) -

I agree. Can't wait for multiplayer but I guess I'll have to wait for the beta in September. But it looked good.

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.

#23 Posted by imsh_pl (3295 posts) -

I think the demo's purpose was to show the new engine rather than some interesting gameplay. I'm sure we'll get a lot of that in the near future.

#24 Posted by Bubbly (251 posts) -

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.

#25 Posted by Jackel2072 (2236 posts) -

I has really impressed with the Tech. Parts of that game looked real at times! I thought the single player looked great, disappointed they showed a 30sec mash up clip of multiplayer.

I cannot be friends with anyone that enjoyed that tank sequence.

#27 Posted by ninjalegend (411 posts) -

Maybe the Micheal Bay Modern Warfare is more your style. Not a dis, but perhaps you like the arcade twitch with lots of explosions style. I like the tactical style better myself.

#28 Posted by Marz (5642 posts) -

All i know is that i gotta upgrade my PC sooner than i expected.

#29 Posted by mpgeist (594 posts) -

That's the problem with today's gamer, it's gotta be 100% action all the time. I like games that allow for a little build-up.

Theres nothing tactical about that sequence.

Well i guess we're not friends anymore :'(
#32 Posted by pornstorestiffi (4909 posts) -

I was captivated, and wanted to drive the fuck out of that tank. So i disagree.

Saying you were friends with him in the first place?

I thought it looked great !

Cod still looks good too but I think i will like BF3 more.

#35 Posted by chan05 (318 posts) -

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.

#36 Posted by big_jon (5709 posts) -

Tanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

#37 Posted by TekZero (2663 posts) -

Not only was it not boring, but it made me reconsider my whole stance on this "modern" shooter business.  I may actually get this. 

#38 Posted by ninjalegend (411 posts) -
@Mikemcn: The tactical style FPS style of game makes more allowances for run ups to the action sequences. That is probably what people find boring. Not a plane crashing, atom bomb going off, or escape sequence to break up the tank command "monotony".
#39 Posted by FreakAche (2949 posts) -

Yeah it looked pretty boring, but the singleplayer doesn't matter, so whatever.

#40 Posted by Cirdain (2996 posts) -

Relative to MW3, it's amazing. But remember the slice they showed isn't meant to be be satisfying. It's meant to leave you wanting more.

#41 Posted by DetectiveSpecial (464 posts) -

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.

#42 Posted by pweidman (2298 posts) -

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.

Yup. 
 
I wish there was some uncut multiplayer, but whatever. I'll take what I can get.
#44 Posted by UlquioKani (1027 posts) -
@FrankCanada97: Then you already loose to MW3, they are going to have good multiplayer and their single player stuff is always interesting. I know multi player is the draw with both games but Call of Duty, ever since COD4, they have always had an interesting or at least action packed story. The demo at E3 was slow at the start and never really got anywhere. This is a shame considering the stories in Bad Company 1 and 2 were actually pretty good. Battlefield 3 so far has really only shown that it has amazing graphics. This reminds me of the coverage of the first Crysis a couple of years ago. Look what happened to that. I turned out alright and that was its problem. All the graphics in the world don't change the way the game is played

I actually agree, that tank battle was boring to watch, but I understand why they chose it (showcasing explosions)

I can't wait! Awesome stuff. Right direction for Battlefield. I hope that they introduce the commander/reintroduce the squad leader role. I never liked the ability to spawn on every squad mate.

#49 Posted by jorbear (2517 posts) -

I was pretty impressed. I thought the tech looked amazing and it was pretty exciting throughout.

#50 Posted by ShaneDev (1696 posts) -

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.
