Battlefield 3 vs Battlefield 2 Comparison Video
After looking at the latest trailer of BF3 we wanted to go back into the gaming archives and compare the graphics and gameplay between Battlefield 2 & 3. Look how far the franchise has come.

    Nobody cared about graphics back when BF2 was out. All they where bothered about was having fun and competing online. Better graphics would just make the biggest and bestest online game lag even more, not something you want :/

    Cost factor is the determining factor for me. I use primarily a PC and not consoles for gaming and I would have to buy a higher performance PC just to consider playing BF3. Additionally it's around $60 dollars just for the game. I purchased BF2 The Complete Edition for only $10 and there are numerous mods and maps online to download for free.

    (Same thing applies to Codemaster's: Operation Flash Point.)

    BF2 didn't have a single player linear story line... BF2 was the perfect mix of a RTS and FPS...

    I will probably check out a Demo of BF3 but if they really want my money just give me BF2 exactly but updated to those BF3 graphics and some new weapons, Maps, vehicles/planes.

    BF2 has to be one of my favorite games of all times for playing online... Was actually thinking of reloading BF2 just the other day for nostalgia..

    Yeah those are Battlefield one video's they are displaying in comparison to Battlefield 3. What about number 2? I can't believe I'm the only person who noticed that those video's weren't from Battlefield Bad Company 2. If you don't believe me compare the Battlefield 2 video's from this to your Battlefield 2 game.

    There is a huge flaw in this particular video comparison. The Battlefield 2 video's they are showing to compare the graphics are from the original Battlefield not Battlefield 2. Like the part with the tank, I knew when I saw it that it the tank looked funny.

    Its completely fair to compare the 2. BF3 is technically the sequel to BF2 (the BC series being a spin offs/side to the franchise). Agreed though BFBC2 would make more sense due to the engine being advanced (which lets face it is what were really looking at in this comparison as Frostbite has only been in BF games since BC1).
    However the QQ about 'cant compare singlepayer to a multiplayer is total bs in this case, you can see BF3 is far beyond anything DICE have done to date and the multiplayer graphically hasn't deminished much within the BC series when compared to singleplayer.
    This is going to be one of if not the best FPS game made to date. Not to incite fanbois but COD cant even hope to get anywhere near this.

    BF3's graphics are crap compared to BF2. Look at that static enviornment! Looks a lot better than that new Anti-Aliasing effects. Hmph. /sarcasm

    This seems like a really stupid video comparison. on one hand you got a game that old as dirt and on the other hand you got a game thats not even out yet of course the new one looks better. now if they want to do a real comparison they should compare BFBC 2 with BF3 that would make more sense seeing as how BFBC2 came out more recently.

    The scale in BF3 is sooo massive.

    BF2 looks pretty foggy, not the best graphics the game can offer. This also is comparing a movie(trailer)(singleplayer) to actual gameplay (multiplayer). these are apples and oranges. Now some screens of Karkand, Wake, Oman and Sharqi and some video of them on each game engine would be a real comparison. And let's not forget what really matters with the Battlefield series, 64 players, realistic weapon accuracy ( not cod or bc2 accuracy), large maps, vehicles, and most important teamwork.

    I totally agree with prboi64.....im a COD fan to the bone...and yeah i still love BF games ...its more real its somehow more serious but i have fun playing COD a lot more than BFbC2 ppl are always gonna complaint and compare but at the end you make the choice of what u spend hrs playing, for those hardcore fans of bf games ...good enjoy i personally play the single player and from time to time the multi player because it is a fact that the fun is on COD....regarding to this video comparison..lol it makes no sense first they went back to BF2 and skipped the latest installment BFBC2 ..the video should have been between these two and and also this cinematics are always taken from the pc version or are simply a cinematic trust me guys the consoles are far from this and the gameplay on consoles is not gonna be as bad ass as they show here...

    I really hate people who say "BF3 is the COD killer" or things like that. COD will never die. I'm not saying it's better than BF3 because i know it isn't, but it will never die. Base soley on how the average person feels about it. The average person who plays video games will play COD just to have fun & that's all they are looking for. People look so much into things these days that they can never have fun with any game. Something always has to be better than the other. BF3 better than COD Black Ops. 360 better than PS3. Uncharted better than Gears of War. Nobody just likes a game because of what it does, they always have to compare it to something. That's why COD sells so much. Their average player can give a crap about graphics, gameplay, story etc. As long as they have fun with it, they will stick with it.

    hehe you want a real sense for how far the engine has evolved? Compare Battlefield 3 to Battlefield 1942.
