Excerpt: The idea behind Battlefield 3 was to go back to basics with the Battlefield franchise and to create a true sequel to Battlefield 2 . The end product is a game that looks as good as Crysis 2 , with a single player campaign that plays out like a Michael Bay blockbuster feature film and has the...
Pros: By far the best looking military shooter on the PC ever! A worthy sequel and an ideally defining game to relaunch the Battlefield franchise with on the PC. True 64-player online multiplayer military shooter gaming on the PC has never been better thanks to Battlefield 3 .
Cons: Single player campaign is for looks and only sets the stage, coop also seems like an after thought, not to mention that the jets and helicopters seem pointless in execution. Trying to turn the game interface into a Facebook-like interface with Battlelog was totally unnecessary.
Excerpt: In all the hubbub about Premium subscriptions, week-long exclusivities and internet-fuelled EA bashing, it's easy to forget there's an actual expansion pack out for Battlefield 3. And with over 15 million players having shot-and-spot their way through the game last October, that's a hell of a lot of...
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.
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.
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.
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...
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.
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.
