Warfighter to Compete with Black Ops 2
It seems every year now we gamers get to witness a clash between FPS superstars. Last year it was Modern Warfare 3 vs Battlefield 3 and this year it is Black Ops 2 vs Medal of Honor: Warfighter. Both these games are direct sequels to their respective predecessors and both of them show great promise.
Since 2003 Call of Duty has been the reigning champ with little or no competition. Even though there are a lot of gamers annoyed by the COD franchise now because of the similar gameplay and old engine, they still continue to break sales records every year. It's no wonder the franchise doesn't seem too eager to set itself apart from their tried and tested formula.
This is where Battlefield and MoH come into play. These guys desperately want to get to the top and that's why they are trying to improve on any and all aspects of the genre. We have all seen how amazing the Frostbite 2 engine looks and its potential for destructive environments. This year's MoH is expected to actually be better looking (slightly) than BF3.
Not only is MoH bringing a better graphics to the table they are also bringing their secret weapon - globalization. Seems The Danger Close team has taken inspiration from Fifa in becoming more 'global'.
In one of our previous articles we gave the complete list of the twelve Tier 1 Teams that were available from a total of ten different countries. The Danger Close team is banking on the local appeal of these teams and hoping the patriotism factor would kick in to get people that much more involved with game and the overall experience.
Also another key difference between Black Ops 2 MoH this year is that MoH is much more grounded while Black Ops 2 (being set in the future) has gone a bit high-tech. A lot of fans have already expressed their dissatisfaction with Black Ops regarding this.
But no matter what the online polls say or how many complaints there are, CoD has always come out on top. With this year's Black Ops being termed as the MOST ambitious of all CoD games, MoH has to bring its A game in order to have any chance of competing.
It is obvious that there is no way that MoH can take the throne this year but, having a solid run will definitely help the franchise get a bigger cut the next time. Maybe in time we will see BF or MoH become the top dog but till then I hope the competition keeps on increasing. The stronger the competition, the better it is for us gamers.
If you aren't sure which of these titles you will be picking up, don't fret. Our modded controllers are likely to be compatible with both titles. If you already have our Adjustable controller or our Master Mod you can fine tune our Adjustable setting to have rapid fire on day 1 of either release.
