Video Game Rewind

Hey everyone, how are you all doing today? I would like to welcome you all back to my computers and electronics blog, and welcome you to a discussion 6 years in the making; Battlefield 3 or Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3? Back in 2011 when these games both came out I put over a hundred hours into each of them, but it has been so long since then that I don’t even have the games anymore. That is why this is going to be a fresh start (or as much as possible) trying these two games. I went and found some used copies of each game online at www.for-sale.co.uk and will be playing them both on my Xbox 360. Let’s get to it!

 Call of Duty MW3 VS. Battlefield 3

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3

Let me get it out there right now: I loved this game. This was one of the last games that me and some friends would play couch co-op on, even if it wasn’t exactly in co-op mode. We would play the multiplayer together and swap the controller after each match.  Recently I went and found a copy of this brilliant game online at http://www.for-sale.co.uk/call-duty-mw3. Of course the developers had to put out tons of DLC for the game as well and I got all that from http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-us/Product/Call-of-Duty-Modern-Warfare-3/66acd000-77fe-1000-9115-d802415608cb?nosplash=1. Unfortunately multiplayer was dead, but I had tons of fun running through spec ops solo trying to complete it all and get all the stars plus the campaign was really, really interesting.

Battlefield 3

When Battlefield 3 came out, the war between Halo and Call of Duty fans ended and the war between Battlefield and Call of Duty fans began. Anyone who read my favourite games post knows that I am more of a strategy guy, so I tried to stay out of this fight. This became difficult though, as my friends list was divided between the two. This was a fun game to play with a lot of friends, but after picking up a used copy at http://www.for-sale.co.uk/battlefield-3-premium and trying to play online I got no-where. The only thing I could actually play was the single player which is one of the best single players FPS campaigns ever.

Verdict

I have to say, it was really hard to pick between these two games six years after they were released. Both of the multiplayers are dead, and that means that true co-op mode is dead as well. You can play all the spec-ops missions on Modern Warfare by yourself, but unfortunately that gets old fast. Likewise, you can play through the intense Battlefield campaign, but that lasts 15 hours at most. If I had pick one of these games to play now that both communities have moved on, I would say Modern Warfare 3. The spec-ops missions provide so much re-playability that in the end, this is the game you might end up playing longer than a weekend. Thanks for reading this everyone, hope you liked it. If you did, please take some time to check out my last post on early adopters. Have a great day everyone!
