We all know Call of Duty is the king of first person shooters today but Battlefield has always made a good run for second place. Now, with the next titles of both franchises coming out around the same time, things might be a bit different this time around.
In the Graphics department, Battlefield takes the cake. Even in the pervious Battlefield 2 (Bad Company), buildings can collapse, you can drive humvees, jeeps, tanks, armored cars, helicopters and more which gives off a more war type of environment then Call of Duty does. The world around you just looks so fine and amazing, you would think your in the war yourself. But Call of Duty doesn’t go for the glamor. It goes for the kill. All though Call of Duty might not be as realistic as its competitor, its still the best seller. Why is that? Well Call of Duty has its own style of playing that people just get sucked into, with Modern Warfare being the best of the line. Modern Warfare 3 is still beautifully refined graphic-wise, but Battlefield 3 wins in the graphics department.
Nobody but the developers know what the next storyline of these games will be, but judging from the previous sequels, Call of Duty wins here. Call of Duty always has a great story to introduce the game to you. Compared to Battlefield 2 (Bad Company), COD has a better written more involved way of taking you though these journeys to the heart of war. One thing that the new Battlefield will have over Modern Warfare 3 is the selection of co-op missions with-in the single player story. So if your having trouble beating that one level, and you keep dying over and over, invite a friend to help along side you.
Now, what everyones been waiting for… the multiplayer. Its anybodies guess who wins here. Both franchises know that this is what people mainly go to play when playing their game. They have both had the time off to figure out what works and what doesn’t. Improvements are certain in almost every aspect so its anyones game. Call of Duty and Battlefield already know what needs to be brought to the table. Lets hope they know what their doing this time around. Just expect to see a ton of new downloadable content.
So… what game are you planning on getting?
