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.
Summary: " Battlefield 3 " is a fantastic experience. Great looking and playing, it could be a genuine contender. It is dragged down by the long loads and various glitches that still remain, and elements of the single player disappoint, both in terms of the storytelling and the overall experience.
Battlefield 3 multiplayer impressions - rant included
9 November 2011
Conclusion: Nonetheless, as you move through the upgrades and get the better weapons you do feel like you're becoming a better soldier, and along the way you're becoming a master of the battlefield because of the experience gained from spending time on the maps. Getting access to vehicle specialisations, such as heat-seekers, thermal optics and reactive armour, is great reward for your efforts and the accessories and modifications really do improve efficiency on the battlefield.
Conclusion: Overall, Battlefield 3 is an excellent game. It is familiar enough for Battlefield veterans to feel comfortable with it, but there are also a number of additions that will mix up the gameplay. We feel that these changes do a nice job of making this game feel refreshingly different, although we will also admit that some changes will take some getting used to, especially the vehicle control changes.
Excerpt: At its core Battlefield is, and always has been, about the multiplayer experience. Let us not ignore that the majority of players will be buying this game exclusively for the multiplayer element. This is not some 'tagged-on', botched example of a game which has an online multiplayer included for added kicks and a few extra hours of longevity. Battlefield is multiplayer, and at its finest.
Excerpt: The gaming industry has also become more consolidated and cutthroat, and to that end we have BF3 . Make no mistake - the game's publisher, EA, desperately wants Battlefield to become the next Modern Warfare . BF3 has a much slicker presentation than BF2 , and a massive marketing campaign behind it, complete with the slogan “above and beyond the call.” It's also launching simultaneously for the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.
Excerpt: Battlefield 3 is kind of a creature out of time. It’s official predecessor, Battlefield 2 , launched in 2005. Even that recently it was a very different era: despite being a first-person shooter, BF2 was a PC-only title, and one of its rivals - the Call of Duty series - was successful but still not an annual blockbuster. Since then there have been several Battlefield spin-off games, at the same time as PC-focused shooters have become increasingly rare.
Excerpt: As endless as our real-world wars seem, they're nothing compared to the gun-crazed paranoid fantasyland of Battlefield 3. Here the worst-case scenario is as inevitable as the setting sun, and scanning shoes at airports won't make a lick of difference. After a cinematic opening that sees you scurry through a New York City commuter train, the solo campaign flashes back to an overly familiar frame story.
Pros: + Four effective multiplayer roles; exciting team-focused modes; good use of ground and air vehicles., + Outstanding collection of spacious, gorgeous, and precisely tuned multiplayer maps; online statistics.
Cons: ? Why can't you quit between multiplayer matches?
