We will find out when it comes out, but hopefully better then CoD, don't get me wrong I thought CoD was a great SP game, but being able to control your team is going to be soo much better http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

ok, sorry for the hijack, but it won't let me freaking post a new topic. i have to show you guys this! a new bia trailer is out here:
i see a colt 1911, a springfield, and a very gory dead body http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
COD is a overhyped joke,i despise its rise to fame,BIA better be 100 times better.....ill thread post your trailer
11-24-2004, 03:02 PM
I think it will be very difficult to compare these two titles in terms of gameplay. They are entirely different kinds of games...like apples and oranges. However graphics and sound will be comparable. COD has great sound ( especially on 5.1)
yes ill admit cod had superb ambiance sound,weapon sounds were awful though

I think BIA will be alot better than COD. COD is still very much like MOH. Realism wise, BIA embaresses the claims of realism from COD. COD is designed to be fun at the expense of key features, thats something which is disappointing and with current games like BIA entering the market we could well see the extinction of such games. After all they have been done to death, BIA offers something new, the opportunity to experience to an extent ww2 beyong previously provided

I'm with Bia_Fan.
I think CoD will be a have a little competition come February.
11-25-2004, 05:07 AM
cod did not get very good reviews
11-25-2004, 01:55 PM
I think medal of honor pacific assault is pretty good, you can sort of (in a way) give commands to your squad
MOHPA is erm cr*p...its gameplay is 2 years out of date now,kill japs,run to next scripted moment,kill japs,repeat..............MOHAA had its fair of dull levels but its good levels were good
11-25-2004, 02:22 PM
I've said it a million times. With CoD, when you've played it once, you've played it all.
11-25-2004, 06:09 PM
just a side note, do not get CoD for the xbox or ps2.
i rented it with high hopes, but was dissappointed w/ the gameplay, SP and MP
11-25-2004, 10:00 PM
Tcarter go to www.callofduty.com (http://www.callofduty.com) if you do not think it got good reviews. Everything I saw gave it good reviews, which at the time it deserved. Now, we can see how 1 dimensional it is, and we will most definately get way way more with BIA
call of duty got superb reviews from every major website/magazine.........for me its too frantic,too scripted,run on rails........i did enjoy pegasus bridge mission though
11-26-2004, 04:47 PM
Im not sure if COD of the console got superb reviews, Im certain though that there was a general concensus that it was no where near the standard set on the PC version. It doesnt really matter though, BIA will blow COD away.
11-27-2004, 03:09 PM
I don't think it's fair to compare COD with this game. I mean, COD was a good game within itself. it was made by ex programmers that did MOH and were trying to do a better MOH, essentially. COD is not trying to be what BIA is trying to be. BIA is trying to be a "tactical" shooter; i guess that would be the best term for it...anyway yeah, i have high hopes for BIA. I liked COD a lot but in retrospect it was way too scripted and fast paced. I tried the demo for the expansion and **** I couldn't stop to be in a firefight long enough before the **** sarge told me to go here and there...sheesh. give me a break sarge! I want to hide in my hole...lol =)
11-27-2004, 05:15 PM
What i didnt like about CoD was the way characters moved: it looked like everyone had drink 10 cups of coffee and were set free with guns in a square box no bigger than half a "mile".Never tiring... reloding like a machine... pulling the magazines out of their sleeves...
I hope that BiA gets a more human combat atmosphere.
11-27-2004, 07:07 PM
Call of Duty is a good game
but it is mostly a james bond kind of game where
you go and kill the army all by yourself.
War is supposed to be a team
and there is no "i" in team
only a "t"/"e"/"a"/and"m"
My Spelling teacher taught me that one

Call of Duty is a great game, yet, it has its drawbacks (mass-spraying, not tactical maneuvers)-glitches glitches glitches. This game will actually give YOU the opportunity to control your squad, not you follow them. The A.I. for your squad AND the enemy is going to be amazing, both being fire and maneuver. I can't wait!
11-29-2004, 10:02 PM
yeah and i really believe. Well if you want to be good anyway you wont do this. In BIA you wont have people bunny hopping around in multiplayer like cod and lots of other games. It will be the person that is taking cover and then shooting and flanking is who is gonna win.
11-30-2004, 07:24 PM
Yep. My clan for CoD has pretty much broken up due to the amount of noob-ishness with the sprayers and campers in CoD. BIA will actually require skill and (what's this...tactics!?)lol. Never before seen in any game!
11-30-2004, 10:35 PM
BiA will definitely own CoD in the graphical and realism department. Gameplay is up for debate. However, BiA's release (early 2005) will be right along with the supposed release of DoD:S. I'm sure many other WWII Source mods will be at least in beta by then, so BiA will have some good competition. Popularity-wise though, BiA won't be able to build a community like CoD's.
CoD was cool for about a month, then it wore off and I went back to DoD. In a way you can't really compare the games, BiA is a "tactical shooter" and CoD was and always will be a FPS. And CoD was always advertised as a realistic FPS, which it lived up to. It is probably the most realistic FPS in the market today.
12-01-2004, 01:36 PM
Well, since only think that those 2 games have in common is WW2 here is my opinion.
Best WW2 game: COD
Why? Couse it's lot easyer to make a good FPS (and COD is exelent) then decent tactical shooter.
Sorry guys but someone have to be a pesimist. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

yea i agree COD was a great game and all but i believe fight with a squad will be ten times better. But i will have too see the Multiplayer in BIA and see if it is better than COD
Apples vs Oranges, something I dislike. If this game (BiA) were to be a fps - 32 player multiplayer - It would freakin rock my socks with the realism settings. Squads would be at high demand to accomplish goals just because of the damage model... Rambo types would be eliminated etc etc. I think BiA is going beyond what they need to - This talk of max of 2 players per team and you command your own squad sounds more like an RTS to me... Would like to see more "action" than strategy. There is still a ton of strategy within FPS games but ONLY if they are as realisitc as BiA will be. Again, I think BiA's multiplayer will be a hit for maybe a week or two, but I believe it will fall off very quickly because it may not have the 32 player team deathmatch or search and destroy features like other games.

BIA is going to be the next step up from COD. COD brought FPS to a whole new level. BIA will do the same thing
12-07-2004, 04:26 PM
Guys...come on. You cannot compare these two games, because of one simple fact. CoD was ment to be an all out firefight. Last man standing if you will. BiA is ment to be played where the objective is to win the battle, using the best strats possible and lose the least amount of men. CoD was an awsome game... when compared to other games of its caliber. BiA does not have a standard it has to beat, so of course this game is going to blow other games out of the water (if there really are any other games like BiA).
BiA will be a good game...you dont have to worry about that.
12-07-2004, 04:44 PM
BiA is based on military tactics. In CoD, you don't use strategy; its a matter of using cover to get close enough to neutralize the enemy. While that is the case in most games, this game will multiply that aspect by 1000 times because there are no health-packs and your ammo is limited. You will need to rely on real, tactical strategy in order to simply survive and win the battle.
I predict that a lot of us who play CoD and MoH are going to have to rething strategy when playing. I play a lot of Battlefield '42 and Vietnam online and I'm always trying to out-flank enemy positions and use supressive fire and other tactics. Problem is that we're too use to being able to just run around and shoot shi!t up because we know we can regain health and ammo with out dying.
All the games that have come before this one are great; some better than others. However, this game will be far more sophistocated.
12-07-2004, 09:09 PM
Amen. I hate all the other FPS games where "harder" settings just means more enemy or they magically shoot like everyones a bleeding sniper.
Give me a game where enemy will think to overcome you. This isn't to say make them supersmart, they should cower with fear if I suppress them like crazy. I want a good AI opponent, not something where the game designers got lazy and just doubled the enemy or set their autoaim to 100%.
12-07-2004, 10:41 PM
Maybe we'll see this AI being very realistic to how normal humans would react in a combat situation. They aim and fire, but miss simply because they're firing at moving, living targets; maybe they're a little shaky. Maybe one Gerry freezes up when you charge a pill-box after throwing a grenade to supress his fire.
12-08-2004, 01:19 PM
AI in BiA > AI in CoD
Graphics in BiA > Graphics in CoD
Tactics in BiA > Tactics in CoD
Realism in BiA > "Realism" (I hesitate to call it that) in CoD
Research gone into BiA >>>>>>>>>> Reseach gone into CoD
When you look at most if not all things that are comparible between the two titles, Brothers in Arms will be on top. The rest of the aspects of the games will be different, and as someone said before, would be comparing apples and oranges. Overall, I personally think Brothers in Arms will blow Call of Duty out of the water, and more.
12-08-2004, 04:39 PM
I agree with you all the way Campbell...except on the graphics. CoD is supposed to look arcade BiA is supposed to look realistic. Anyone know what the FPS of the game be? CoD runs at a smooth 60 most of the time. I wonder what BiA will be. Its supposed to run on low-preformance sys. right?
12-08-2004, 04:46 PM
<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR> Gearbox: For the PC version, the the game will run well on even a lower-end system. It will look fantastic on a higher-end system. Currently, you ill need a GeForce 3 or above (shader hardware, Direct X 8.0 support, etc), and at least a Pentium 3/1.0 Ghz processor (or equivalent). Final minimum/recommended specs will be announced closer to release. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
I would consider the specs rather low. My guess is that the fps will be solid.
12-08-2004, 10:53 PM
are you guys seriously comparing these two games? they arent even alike. the object in CoD is to kill everyone else, in BiA you're using tactics and skill to fire and maneuver. the object is to flank your enemy using whatever strategy you have.
BiA is going to be so advanced we're not going to be ready for it.
i think i will be bummed that there is no +32 person deathmatches though. a little off topic.
12-09-2004, 01:12 AM
I think BiA will be better than COD. However, COD will be a lot more popular. The masses don't want a smart tactical game. They want mindless action. Just look at the number of Operation Flashpoint players online compared to Battlefield players. Look at the number of MOH compared to Hidden & Dangerous players. So all in all BiA may not be as hugely popular as COD but will be better and have a tighter nit community http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
