Excerpt: If you don’t know by now, I am a huge fan of Battlefield 3. The game is beyond amazing and has received lots of support since release, not just from gamers playing it but also with downloadable content. There have been a total of five downloadable content packs for Battlefield 3, the most recent of which is called ‘End Game.
Excerpt: End Game could not be more aptly named. Over the course of the last 15 months, developers DICE have released a steady stream of expansions for their seminal first person shooter, running the gauntlet from tight arena sized combat in Close Quarters to the all out vehicle warfare the series is most renowned for in Armoured Kill .
Excerpt: regarding the ways that some publishers use games to install spyware and malware on your computer. The policy is that if a we feel a company is abusing its consumers, instead of reviewing the game we tell you about it.
Conclusion: Modern day conflicts are raging both in the real world and on our consoles. We have come a long way with graphics and sound design that the immersion in these games is getting more intense and advanced. The conflicts that are portrayed in Battlefield 3 look pretty close to the ones that are taking place this very minute on the other side of the world with the same kind of soldiers going through nightmarish scenarios and experiencing the horrors of war as you do in the...
Conclusion: This is a must own title. Though you can be distracted with all the great titles out there now its just to figure out how to invest your money. Plain and simple invest in this game. Even if your picking it up late your not to far behind in the multi player curve. This game alone could keep you busy for months.
Excerpt: Two peculiar features await Xbox 360 owners who decide to go to war with Battlefield 3: Limited Edition . First, the game arrives on two disks, one for single-player and the other for multiplayer. It's an oddity, but considering the DVD's limitations, it's a logical split. Actually, it's more logical than you would ever expect - but more on that later. You're also greeted with the option to install an HD texture pack.
Excerpt: Battlefield 3 may be the red-hotness in modern online multiplayer, but even hardened soldiers can get wistful for the war-torn streets of years gone by. Back to Karkand 's main attraction is the sparkling shine it puts on four killer maps yanked from Battlefield 2 . The first thing you'll notice in this downloadable map pack, provided you don't immediately get the top of your head shot off, is the enhanced level of destructibility enabled by the upgrade to Battlefield 3...
Pros: + Four outstanding maps stuffed full of ambush possibilities and (mostly) destructible architecture., + Killer hovering jets and dune buggies; 10 familiar weapons for committed troops to unlock.
Summary: Battlefield 3 is something of a mixed bag. On the one hand, you have a single player campaign that while tolerable, is not nearly as entertaining or well written as the Bad Company games or even some of the Call of Duty titles. The co-op mode does little to help with that, lending only six missions that can only be played by two players and are overall not very fun and overly lengthy.
Excerpt: This isn't going to be a Battlefield 3 versus Modern Warfare 3 comparison kind of review. Everything from game's marketing blitz to the addition of new modes and features not present in prior games in the series shows that EA is heavily focused on positioning Battlefield 3 as a head-to-head competitor with the Call of Duty franchise's latest game, but I'm not as concerned with whether or not they succeeded in making a Call of Duty killer as I am about whether they made a...
