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...
Summary: Here's a quick tip for enjoying the Xbox 360 version of Battlefield 3: if you really want to enjoy the console version of the game, then don’t play the PC version. Ever. I know that sounds pithy and a bit on the arrogant side but playing the game on the console was one of the best console multiplayer FPS experiences I've ever had. The problem is that fact was ruined by the knowledge that a bigger, better version exists.
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 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.
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.
