Excerpt: When it comes to virtual battlefields, nobody does it quite like the Battlefield series. It has a long history of creating sprawling conflict zones where players have an exhilarating range of ways to make powerful contributions to the war effort. Yet it wasn't until the Bad Company games were released that Battlefield really made a splash on consoles.
Pros: Deep and varied multiplayer competition, Awesome array of vehicles, Many attractive environments, Rewards teamwork handsomely
Cons: Campaign is disappointing and dull, Only six cooperative missions, No way to practice jet flight outside of multiplayer
Conclusion: Easily vying for the position of best multiplayer game on PS3, Battlefield 3 is fantastic online and shows DICE’s mastery in the field. The less said about the ignorable single-player, the better. It’s not a game to buy for offline alone.
Excerpt: In the world of military shooters, there are few franchises that really set the bar and attract a devout following from game to game. Battlefield is one of these veterans of the genre, known for large maps allowing numerous tactics, large-scale destruction, and a plethora of vehicles.

25 October 2011
Excerpt: If you are a company trying to build a team-oriented multiplayer first person shooter, stop it. DICE has won: in Battlefield 3 , they have created the definitive online shooter of 2011. Look upon DICE’s works, ye mighty, and despair.
Excerpt: Battlefield 3 is as much as sequel to the PC-exclusive Battlefield 2 as it is to developer DICE's more recent console-friendly first person shooters, the Battlefield: Bad Company series. I say that not because there are any kind of plots being merged or anything - after all, the original BF2 was basically multiplayer-only anyway - but because the developers are trying to merge in what worked so great in both games' design philosophies.
