    As 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.

    Battlefield 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.

    Maybe 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.

    Battlefield 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.

    An extremely beautiful looking game that takes advantage of the hardware in every way possible, resulting in an experience that's so huge and fulfilling that it will keep you satisfied for years to come, especially with all the DLC map packs int he pipelines.

    What kind of game is Battlefield 3? Well made, extremely impressive, pretty and rich in content. But still it has some flaws and suprising peculiarities.

    I 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.

Tanks, planes, and big ass guns! I feel the multiplayers scope is epic and the leveling/upgrading system is real rewarding. I played the single player and I dont really have an opinion either way. I dont care too much about the single player that takes very few hours to complete compared to the countless hours you can enjoy with the multiplayer. On the consoles I would give a much lower score, you gotta have a real rig to do this game justice. Expand

Only theThe most successful of the game SAYS: excellent technical sector, as the sound. Excellent gameplay and 64 provide a wide players fun. Only the short single player can affect the final evaluation of the game, which would be better to just evaluating the multiplayer. But we are talking about Battlefield, a game that is based on the experience online. FANTASTIC! Expand

    Battlefield 3 is one of the last good Battlefield games. I had about 200 hours of gameplay in the multiplayer.

The real meat and bones is the Multi-player that takes a bit of getting into if new, but enjoyable when when you get to grips with what may a steep learning curve, get a good team and work with them and you'll have many a great game. Let down however is the need to access servers via the browser, it simply takes far to long to get into a game. It at least looks like hte developers are taking on feedback which is always encouraging. Expand

Because this game is UNFINISHED, plenty of bugs from beta are still in final version and the ONLY reason for this is... they wanted to get a pre-CoD premiere. Well screw you, maybe we get bugged games all the time right now, but that doesn't mean it's what WE the gamers want. We want to buy game, a comp to it's spec and play it and have fun, not tu realise we need to wait for patch for who knows how long. So 6/10, learn something for the future. Expand
