    So it's a flawed package then, but it's also one that contains some of the best graphics ever seen on a console, and is one of the premier multiplayer games in existence. [Christmas 2011, p.94]

    Whilst I questioned the mechanics of a game like this being the most valuable component, I am finding time and time again that when juxtaposed against the more alluring and decorative Call of Duty, I would rather spend my time prone in a ditch with my teammates on Battlefield 3.

    A sloppy single-player campaign met with matchless multiplayer makes for an unbalanced first-person shooter experience.

    Wow, what a disappointment, I was looking forward to this game all year since battlefield 2 got me addicted and is my favorite online game.Wow, what a disappointment, I was looking forward to this game all year since battlefield 2 got me addicted and is my favorite online game. This review is only for the online play since I have not played the single player. Dice took the best and funnest shooter available and made almost every aspect of it worse and less fun. The menus all suck, it does not remember your favorite maps so every time you log on you have to re-select what mode and the map that you want to play. All of the weapons are harder ti aim or target, for instance the sniper rifle wanders so much that it is difficult to shoot anything that is not standing still or at short distance. While the maps seem different, most feel exactly the same, most are boring and are too cramped & tight, very few places to feel safe, this is why I don't like modern warfare games, every time you turn a corner there is someone waiting to kill you that you can't possibly know is there.Thanks for ruining my favorite game, I'll trade it in next week for Uncharted 3. Huge disappointment. period. Full Review »

The game itself has a great story that does a good job and submersing you. The multiplayer is fun. You cant blame the game for problems that you provoke. Like dying or aiming terribly. If you look hard enough youll find small glitches like any other game but it stands out from its competition by providing something new. I rate this game a 10 because thats what it should deserve.
