Conclusion: We recommend this M-rated title for grown-ups and some teens, just beware the online players. Some of them can be more offensive than the game itself. War, what is it good for? Fun with friends, a constant challenge and the controversy inherent making a game about war a fun thing to do. Whether you want your kids playing depends on how you see war play. Is it a fun cathartic way to deal with horror and dread? Is it fun challenging times with friends?
Excerpt: After the entertaining but unfulfilled Close Quarters, DICE is back doing what it does best - size . Everything about Armo(u)red Kill, Battlefield 3's third DLC pack, is big. Big maps, big vehicles, big explosions, big noise. It's the experience Battlefield veterans have been clamouring for, and a real statement that this is still the place to be for emergent, unscripted and relentlessly dramatic multiplayer action.
Excerpt: Did you forget about Battlefield? No one would blame you if you did - since the last piece of BF3 premium content landed, there's been $1bn worth of Call Of Duty, a record-smashing return of Master Chief and, er, Medal of Honor Warfighter. Creeping around the back and sneaking up on the flag, though, is DICE's most complete and enjoyable map-pack yet, Aftermath. An apt title, given the triple-A melee that's dominated the past few months.
Conclusion: Battlefield 3 doit encore exprimer tout son potentiel, à tous les joueurs sans exception. Après quelques parties en ligne, les joueurs pourront oublier facilement ces désagréments de lancement. Pour le moment, l'agacement est légion, pour un jeu de cette envergure, de la part d'un gros éditeur comme Electronics Arts, un tel lancement suscite l'incompréhension.
Pros: Le multijoueur, cœur du jeu et ses qualités :, l'action et le rythme imposée par la présence de 64 joueurs et des véhicules, les cartes gigantesque regorgeant de subtilités, de passages secrets,..., L'immersion totale, La qualité technique et le rendu graphique, La bande son
Cons: Une campagne solo anecdotique mais appréciable quand elle est vue comme une mise en bouche, Les bugs rédhibitoires
Excerpt: This year we’ve seen the release of quite a lot of blockbuster games but many shooter fans have no doubt anticipated Battlefield 3 the most, the next installment in DICE’s very successful series, and one of the few franchises from Electronic Arts that might stand a chance against Activision’s Call of Duty behemoth.
Conclusion: In summation, Battlefield 3 offers up an extremely run-of-the-mill single player campaign and a nearly nonexistent co-op mode, but absolutely hits a home run where it all counts–the multiplayer. Battlefield has always been known for its unique blend of vehicle and infantry combat that actually makes the game feel like a warzone and the player’s squadmates feel like their lifelines.
Pros: Multiplayer will keep you playing for hours without noticing the time., Excellent Graphics, Performance quite good even on mid-range video cards., Massive maps and great interaction with vehicles, Lots of customization for weapons.
Cons: Falls Short on Single Player and Co-op., Will need a 2GB+ video card for glitch free gameplay on a Surround (3 monitor) setup. 3GB Recommended., Green screen flickering glitch that DICE needs to fix.
