Average User Score: 6.6Mar 3, 2015I have to say this is a really fun game!
Just to start out, I generally like shooters, whether they are first or third person. Secondly,I have to say this is a really fun game!
Just to start out, I generally like shooters, whether they are first or third person. Secondly, one of the biggest aspects of a game that I love is story.
Overall I feel this is a really good game. Obviously it is a shooter, and the controls in the shooting aspects of the game are pretty good. I feel like it is up to the standards that most third person shooters abide by. I feel like if you like a game like Gears of War, or maybe an Uncharted without all the climbing then you will like the combat.
As for the story. I know that a lot of stuff has been said in regards to its' length. I clocked it in at about 6 or so hours. That may sound short, but the amount of content put into that 6 hours is great. It has a very engaging story line that had me confused at parts and then going, wow that makes so much sense at other times. The story is very much clocked in at the right time at 6 hours. I feel like that if it was any longer that it would lose its' luster. Being a Cinematic game means that just like a movie, you don't want to spend 10 hours playing something that could be done in shorter times.
Unlike games that are only Quick Time Events, this game has a lot of great combat, and an amazing story. While there are some plot holes at the end of the game, they are pretty easy to infer what happened and why. I feel like the bad press this game is getting is undue. While not a Game of the Year Candidate, it is a solid title.
Overall I give this game a 9 out of 10… Expand
Average User Score: 7.9Mar 16, 2013This game has a lot to live up to in following a masterpiece like Wings of Liberty. Overall this game does a wonderful job of doing just that.This game has a lot to live up to in following a masterpiece like Wings of Liberty. Overall this game does a wonderful job of doing just that. The single player is fresh and fun, it isn't a large change from Wings of Liberty and I am okay with that. The story is a bit hard to believe and seems a bit rehashed but overall it is well executed with that said. For multiplayer, the units were not changed a lot, and there just seems to be a few changes overall. This is good in my opinion due to the large number of strategies that would have to be completely scrapped if the multi player was fully revamped.
Overall I give this game a 8/10. It has a good single player, and a continued amazing multi player.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.5Mar 16, 2013As an avid God of War fan I per-ordered this months ago. This was a day one purchase for me and I am very happy that I picked it up. This gameAs an avid God of War fan I per-ordered this months ago. This was a day one purchase for me and I am very happy that I picked it up. This game is about the same length as all of the other God of War games(about 5-10 hours, can be longer if you are on Titan) and has a very solid combat system. There are some new improvements in the game play and it makes everything more streamlined and feels more intuitive. The story is not as good as God of War III, but it is an amazing story nonetheless. The difficulty does ramp up from time to time and it does get very difficult at times, but that is what God of War is built upon. The multi player is a fun addition that is very well done. It is something that is very unique and has a lot of opportunity for continued play in the future, there is no doubt that I will continue to play the multi player over the upcoming months. Overall I give this game a 9/10 it would get a 10, however with it following up on God of War III, it would be pretty difficult to get a 10 when compared to that.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.3Mar 21, 2012Armored Core, coming from a person who used to play Chromehounds, another mech game, is different. But coming from From Software just likeArmored Core, coming from a person who used to play Chromehounds, another mech game, is different. But coming from From Software just like Chromehounds did i can definitely see the similarities that come from both series, and i can tell that this is just as good of a game. The only problem i seen was that there was a few glitches on day 1 but they have already been solved in the same day, and the online play is phenomenal, if you are used to a slower mech game like me you will have to take some time to practice and get used to this because if you don't you will be overwhelmed with the real players going wild with the dodging of shots. However, if you are just a single player gamer then i wouldn't recommend it just because its a mainly online game, but that never stopped these horrible titles like call of duty from getting good reviews. This game is really good if you are a mech game fan, and of course the review sites give it low scores because its not horrible like the FPS market is flooded with these day.s… Expand

I know that some people throw some bad scores at it but the fact is that it does provide a very good experience. Now, having said that, i am a huge dragon age and bioware fan in general. This game is moreso like a mass effect game when you look at the speaking options in the game and also the way that you interact with things. It is stll a dragon age game but it just doesnt feel like the first one at all, i 100% find dragon age origins to be one of the most fun games that i have ever laid my hands on, and even though dragon age 2 doesnt live up to it hardly, it is still an amazing game that is recommended for anyone who likes rpgs.… Expand
Average User Score: 2.5Nov 11, 2011This game is the exact same or worse graphically than its predecessor in the modern warfare series. On top of this, the game play is unchangedThis game is the exact same or worse graphically than its predecessor in the modern warfare series. On top of this, the game play is unchanged barring a few small things such as a few perks being taken out. People that buy this game year in and year out are really deluded if they find that this is somehow new, its almost like buying madden year in and year out, activision would never be able to make money if they didn't get lucky with CoD 4. Since then they have just rode the success of it, and the fact that CoD has little kids as a fan base who cant tell the difference. EA should be commended for making a much better and amazing game in Battlefield 3.… Expand
