Bobby Kotick laugh while stroking his cat in front of a fireplace like he does every year. Infinity Ward will get back to brainstorming up a storyline that is even more nonsensical than the last one and copying and pasting code from COD4. But how long must this go on? If someone critizises the game for being the same old thing, fanboys will shout about how the game is perfect and how it doesnt need to be changed, but honestly, if the game is perfect already, why even bother making a new one? I feel dirty for wasting my money on this franchise again.… Expand

Multiplayer in battlefield 3 is a dream. Maps are huge, visuals are gorgeous, sound is untouched, everything is perfect. The first week there was a few server issues, but everything is running smooth now. Vehicles are perfect, infantry is perfect, can't give it enough praise.
IF YOU BUY THIS GAME FOR THE SINGLEPLAYER: 4/10
I was a fan of the Bad Company single players. They weren't the best, but at least the characters had some personality. BF3 single player is not good. DICE tried to be cod (and i don't think cod has a good sp either). Far to often DICE resorts to stupid quicktime events, which involve repeatedly pressing a button to do stupid stuff. For me? I bought this game soley for the multiplayer, so it is the perfect game. Im not a battlefield vet in the sense that i did not play BF2, but i have been playing nothing but BFBC2 for over a year now.… Expand

I did not have very high hopes for this game, however I had read good reviews and was excited for the campaign. After playing through the campaign, I was thoroughly disappointed. It was not the story that upset me (because I will give Treyarch credit for coming up with a superb story), it was the execution. Too many glitches, to many set pieces in which you simply had to walk places, the objectives seemed repetitive, etc. The AI was simply atrocious, and people would do nothing but roll around on the ground half the time. And a lot of the time Treyarch was just lazy. Puting infinite spawn points in places which eliminated any sense of tactics other than sprint as fast as you could and pray you dont die. None of the characters seemed particularly memorable. However, despite its shortcomings, the single player was not god awful. I was able to finish it and there were sections that i really enjoyed, but overall, not spectacular, not even close. Now on to multiplayer, which, for me, is the most important part of any game. Unfortunately, Black Ops's multiplayer was simply atrocious. Its an unbalanced mess. The guns are all either underpowered or overpowered. There was really nothing new brought to the table at all with the exception of the ability to customize your soldier, which still had been done before in other games multiple times. I found nothing good about the black ops multiplayer experience. In their attempts to make the game more fun, Treyarch removed perks such as Commando, and Slide of Hand. While many would argue that this is a good thing, and makes the games more realistic, I would say that these were some of the only reasons i ever came back to MW2. Also, instead of fixing MW2's problems (laggy, glitchy, hackers, "Host migrations") It seems like Treyarchs MP is just as, if not more littered with problems.
Now, on the things like graphics, Sound effects, etc. Graphics seemed like three steps backwards. Modern Warfare 2 had much better textures than this game. Black Ops makes everything seem too... colorful. As in cartoonish. The explosions were boring and dissapointing. Sound Effects: ...wow... were do i start... sh*tty as f*ck. And while the voice acting was okay, the sounds of the guns and explosions all blended together and sounded two dimensional.
Overall, this game is going on Ebay. For a game with such huge funding from Activision, this is probably the biggest dissapointment of the year, however, because its name is "Call of Duty," it will get praise from IGN and is bound to win several awards for no reason. If this game had not been a COD game and did not get the support of the Cod fanboys praising it blindly and calling it the "best game ever made" without ever playing any other FPS's, this game would have an average of 2.0 or lower… Expand
