Still unsure which of the FPS giants is for you? Feeling like a bit of a social outcast because you can’t relate to your friends talking about the killer head-shot they made last night? Thirteen1’s Kieran McSherry is here to save your day, and just as the prices are starting to drop too – read this guide, buy an FPS, and kill your friends (in the game!).
“Battlefield Bad Company 2” and “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2”. Chances are if you’re into games, console, PC or otherwise, you’ve heard of these two titles. They each represent the pinnacle of next generation first-person shooters (FPS) and even though they are both very different, each topped the sales chart upon release and are at the zenith of the most played games on Xbox Live & PS3 online. Both have an excellent development pedigree and both possess a backlog of impressive previous releases.
On paper, at least, Dice’s “Battlefield: Bad Company 2” (BF:BC2) & Activision’s “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2” (MW2) are nearly indistinguishable. But if that’s true, how can they be so different, and more importantly, which one should you buy?
