Nov 4, 2011As a complete package Battlefield 3 absolutely delivers and if you don't have some angry agenda against Origin it's a must-play. The PC version in particular ushers in a new era of graphical magnificence and the disparity between the consoles begs Sony and Microsoft to up the ante. Shooters don't come much better than this and it's a great way to kick off this year's holiday game rush.
Oct 24, 2011Battlefield 3 offers one of the best multiplayer modes out there. The Frostbite 2 engine is capable of amazing things in order to show the most realistic war we've seen to date. Its only flaws are an extremely short campaign and a co-op mode that could have been much better.
Oct 24, 2011Maybe Battlefield 3's off-line side is a little bit irregular, but its multiplayer options and amazing graphics justify the necessary upgrade of our computers. Those players looking for a game full of innovation will be disenchanted; however if you're looking for an amazing competitive on-line experience, this is it.
Oct 25, 2011Battlefield 3 is amazing. The single player campaign is definitely the weakest link, even though it's more than just decent. The co-op missions are fun, but online multiplayer is the main reason you should get Battlefield 3. Here, the game doesn't disappoint in any way and stands as the strongest entry of the series so far. This is the best multiplayer experience I've had this year.
Nov 29, 2011I enjoyed my time with Battlefield 3's multiplayer, and I wish my thoughts about the game could end there. Unfortunately it also tried to force a totally unnecessary single-player game on me, and the browser interface looks like it came straight out of the 90s.

A real shooter game with heavy realistic graphics and great multiplayer. The single player is beautifully done and the entire system is perfect.

Pros: Graphics, sound, high level of unlocks in multiplayer, Battlelog, overall multiplayer feels "fun." Cons: Occasional "wtf" moments in multiplayer can be very frustrating, gun recoil is a bit too high, hit reg still has a few issues, lower level guns suck.
Something I'd like to mention is the insane amount of XP needed to unlock the weapons and attachments in multiplayer. It's pretty crazy. You get an average of maybe 3k experience in one round, and some of the better unlocks require 200k just for a single unlock. Additionally, some guns can only be unlocked by gaining experience through co op missions. There are only 7 co op missions, and to do these each 3 or 4 times to unlock a single gun gets old really fast. Another issue is the fact that lower level guns and equipment sucks. Higher level guns are just way better than the ones you start out with. This makes it difficult to get started in the game, as you'll be constantly wiped out as you try to beat someone with a gun that's twice as good as yours. However, once you've played maybe 5 hours of multiplayer you'll have plenty of good enough weapons to hang with the top players (if you're good enough). I'd also like to mention destructibility and suppression. They add a whole lot to the game. Being under fire by a tank and suppressing fire as chips of concrete fly and walls crumble around you is a thrilling and frightening experience, one unique to Battlefield. Destroying a wall with an RPG and then rushing the defenders inside and wiping out a whole squad is exhilarating. It's moments like these that truly make this game so much fun.
Overall, the game is very well done. It really is a lot of fun and I enjoy the multiplayer a whole lot. Don't play this game a couple hours then give up. Stick with it, and I promise you'll end up enjoying one of (if not the) best first person shooter game on the market.… Expand

With the obvious exception of the single player campaign. There are a few things that have made me give it an 8/10. These are: Can't seem to get the graphics the same as the adverts! Everything is on highest with a DX11 card, yet it still doesn't look as good as supposed in game footage (from the alpha albeit)
Quite a few bugs, such as people sinking into the ground and being able to snipe without threat of retaliation........
My biggest grievance is the random disconnections! I have scoured many a forum looking for the answer to this, but every fix doesn't seem to work for me. I don't think its a problem with ISP so going to just hang back for a patch.… Expand
Nov 5, 2011Wow. What a let down. After all the hype and the hope, it can't hold a candle to BF2. I say BF2 and NOT BFBC2. Some seem to think Bad CompanyWow. What a let down. After all the hype and the hope, it can't hold a candle to BF2. I say BF2 and NOT BFBC2. Some seem to think Bad Company is BF1, Bad Company 2 is BF2, and BF3 is just BFBC3. To the latter, they're correct. Scoring: Points are rated above average (7) If the game improved on the average, it'll gain points, if it falls behind the average, it loses points.
Sound ------> +3 ------ Excellent. By far the best part of the game.
Graphics ----> +1 ------ Really Good when on MAX, otherwise average.
Maps ---------> -1 ----- Poorly designed, lopsided crap.
Gameplay --> -2 ----- Bad. Bugs, glitches galore. Feels like a beta. BFBC1 & 2 had crappy multiplayer made for console gaming and those who haven't experienced a well balanced gameplay focused game... such as BF2. If you go from BFBC1 or 2 to this, you'll be happy. If you go from BF2 to this, you likely won't. On the bright side, there are some things that are better than BF2. The spotting is simply hitting Q on the enemy now. No more of this holding Q, putting it on the enemy, then releasing it. That was cumbersome. Pace ---------> -1 ------ Strangely a little to quick. Things happen unrealistically fast. Like in CoD Black Ops. Everything seems to happen at x1.5 speed. Helicopters take off too quickly. If you're shot down, you crash quickly. The movements are too sudden. It feels like a crappy churner of a console port.
Interface ----> -1 ----- Talk about trying to be all sleek and cool and fresh... and totally blowing it. Only being able to play the game with an internet browser window open? Really? Only being able to "search" (poorly) for servers in said browser window? Really? Who's terrible idea was that?
Final Score --> 6
Summary: Excellent sound, great graphics, meh maps, bad gameplay, bad interface. Mostly steps backward.
Unfortunately, GAMEs are about GAMEplay. So, BF3 bombs. I can't believe I'm actually looking forward to the predictable vanilla whatever factor of MW3 (not the multiplayer, it has always sucked). At least they stick stick to what they're good at... I hope.
Advice for DICE. Take BF2, give it BF3 graphics and BF3 sound, and you'll have a guaranteed winner. You dropped the ball this time, but everyone gets a Danzig 5/mulligan I suppose. But really, I blame it all on EA, so keep on doing what you do... as long as it's without EA.… Expand

The story is written so poorly, with a cut scene every five minutes. This game is filled with Quick Time events, and even if you fail the quick time event your buddy will come and save you. The game is so easy, I died only once, due to unfair enemies just to make the game seem harder. The voice acting is poor. I feel like I am playing a dumbed down version of Call of Duty Modern Warfare, yeah, I said it! The story is the same as all First Person hand Holders, bad people kill people so we have to kill them. I feel as if I am controlling a robot, this game feels like I am incapable of doing anything myself and has to hold my hand. This game is so short, it is sad. I could spend more time in the first level of Deus Ex than playing this entire game. They pad this just to make it longer. AI characters have to follow you everywhere, treating you like a child! They have to open doors for you! The enemy AI is even worse, walking into your gun fire.
There is a mission that makes you think you are going to fly a jet, but it is just on rails shooter! Not a good one either. I got so board after five seconds of this piece of crap! I am so offended by this game, why did I spend money on? I want to destroy this game.
I feel like my computer is about to shoot itself for me just playing this game.
The shooting just sucks, there is no power to the weapons. All of the weapons are the same, they all fire the same, take the same time to reload, the same amount of ammo to kill an enemy. They all sound as if a cat is sneezing.
There is regenerating health, are you a star fish x10000 or something?
Your AI partners are so incapable of killing anyone, I don't even want them there! All they are doing there is just to further the story.
This game has none of the wakey over-the-top stuff from Call of Duty. Most of the time in this game you are ducked behind cover because the enemy AI shoot a never ending stream of bullets at you. Not that it matters because you are a starfish x10000.
I feel this game is a step back in human evolution. Yeah the reverse of the Theory of Evolution.
I know a bunch of fan boys will say "Oh this game is for the multiplayer that is what it is the multiplayer is good it is good play the multiplayer it is good"
I played the multiplayer, it sucks. It is the normal multiplayer of this generation of First Person Hand Holders. You start with a load out. One thing I can say is load outs suck! Play Half Life's multiplayer where you have to pick up weapons on the map, and if you die you start with a pistol. Load outs make it so you don't have to look around the map. It also gives higher level players an advantage over others because the have better equipment. The whole leveling system sucks anyway I wish games would take it out. They should take a Que from Halo which had a good multiplayer (For this gen)with no load outs!
It is the same thing over and over, you die, respawn, you kill someone, die, respawn, die, respawn, you kill someone, die, respawn, kill someone, die, respawn, die, respawn, die.
I think this game should be renamed 3"… Expand
