Modern Warfare - beta

Open beta was available at the weekend there and will be up again this weekend with new game modes.

Who played it and what did we think?

My review is short and sweet and as a huge BF fan i will admit that Battlefield could be in major deep doo doo! This could come and and swoop a lot of their players they have 100% looked to capitalise on the frustrations on the BF community.

Looked like more of the same in the videos I saw and the graphics never seem to improve on COD, they're good of course, but not exactly groundbreaking for the consoles they're being released for.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Its by far the biggest change they have made by a mile.

Gone are the classic three laned maps, new mechanics all been added lean, peeking throw doors. Gunplay improved massively far more recoil and the guns sound and visuals are greatly improved far more meaty and realistic. Game plays a little more slowly so no more of this running and gunning and tearing through teams on your own.

The add to this the 64 player game mode conquest, with vehicles, choppers and tanks says they are defo targetting the battlefield audience.

Give it bash, the beta is closed again til the weekend where they are testing the 64 player game modes.

Try it and see for yourself, everyone has different tastes and the things i like might not apply to you.

Its free to try so nothing to lose

I'm probably the only one, but Cod frustrate same because I feel restricted by not being able to climb over and through things like walls and windows

With BF I found you could go in, on top or under pretty much anything. That being said I haven't played either for a few years. Last game I bought was RDR2.

It's still not as free as bf, however they have added lots more verticality than before, far far more ways of climbing over walls and on roofs rather than the standard go thro the only gap in the wall or door effort of previous. I do agree though that this is something they can further improve on.

Just played the beta for the first time tonight and I kept thinking I was playing a Battlefield game. The game engine feels very much like Frostbite. If you'd have told me I was playing a follow up to Battlefield 4 I'd have believed you. Doesn't feel like a COD game to me at all.

That's first impressions anyway. Need to play it more though

Wonder if all the hardcore COD fanboys that have always hated battlefield will pretend they don’t like the new game then 😂
