I actually quite enjoyed BO1, however this new "innovation" is pretty much a rehash of MW3 with different guns and a different class system. The gameplay feels exactly the same (which is not good, because the BO1 gameplay was quite good). And the maps are also pretty poor. Finally the unlock system is also pretty bad - almost like they're trying to even the field because so many people are terrible at this game.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.5Nov 12, 2011This is basically the FPS that gamers deserve to play.

I loved playing games like Black Ops up until now; BF3 takes it to a whole new level. Firstly, graphics are stunning. Secondly, gameplay is great. Some great features, the movement and HUD is very nice. Teamwork aspects are also very well done, and all the game modes deliver well. Most importantly, once you start a game, you actually feel like you're in a battle, rather than some virtual maze with people and guns. Sounds are very appealing too. Great game!… Expand
Average User Score: 3.2Nov 10, 2011Really disappointing game. It is the letdown everyone was hoping it wouldn't be.
I really enjoyed playing through Black Ops multiplayer, andReally disappointing game. It is the letdown everyone was hoping it wouldn't be.
I really enjoyed playing through Black Ops multiplayer, and playing the previous COD's (although MW2 was pretty average I thought). The campaign mode in this game actually rather impressed me; the grand scale of all the battles helped me to look past the ever-spawning enemies and enjoy the action sequences. The story was also rounded off nicely. (note: my score pertains to this component of the game)
Multiplayer is a different story. The maps are shocking - way too small, and every one the same, broken buildings and corridors galore. There is no cohesion, the killstreaks don't work properly, graphics are crap etc. It really does feel like a bunch of crazied civilians running around shooting at each other.
As a side note, the great scores given to this game by critics (and the lousy ones given by the public) are a testament to the fact that the gaming industry does not have enough pressure on it to produce new and exciting things. The last one was COD4. Hopefully the next one will be soon.… Expand
