Battlefield 3 is coming out in about half a year but many players have never seen or played the previous game. Battlefield 2 came out in 2005 so graphics are nowhere near as sophisticated as in today’s games. What surprised me is just how dated Karkand looks. All simple textures with wide open uniform spaces. The Dalian Plant map looks quite nice however.

While “researching” this post (aka “watching gameplay videos on Youtube”) it struck me how sophisticated the Xbox 360 and PS3 were on release. Even on max settings the graphics in Battlefield 2 are nothing special by today’s standards yet the exact same console hardware is running Bad Company 2!
Strike at Karkand will appear again in Battlefield 3 so get a head start by playing it in BF2 or watching some of the gameplay videos on that map on Youtube!

To be fair though, it looks like crap on the 360 and PS3 compared to the PC version. 😛
Well, there is that, but I’m still amazed at the progress gaming has made in 6 years, yet the consoles have remained the same. Just goes to show they need to up their game and look at doing the next generation console.
With the cost of game development these days I wonder will that next generation be backwards compatible? Seems a shame to throw out all that experience with the current range of machines, but I’ve read that the next generation will be so speedy it’ll encourage more middleware to make development easier.
