The alpha for this game was just , incredible. The actual game is going to be amazing. I might have to get it for both pc, and xbox 360. I am just so stoked for this game!!!
PC version clearly the best one!
As Karl Magnus Troedsson - General Manager at DICE said , "how does the return of jets, prone, and 64-player multiplayer (only on PC) sound?"
Yep it sound fantastic! compared to the dumbed down console version, PC version will feature huge 64players maps,jet fighters,prone and the best graphics you will ever experience in a DICE game, that will blow you away!
This is going to be one great Battlefield game!
Fantastic. Blows CoD Multiplayer Away!
I'm not sure where the negative reviews are coming from, but I'll keep this simple and break down the negatives: People might have issues with a few gameplay issues, stat padders/hackers, and the site that the game runs through, BattleLog. While I have experienced all of these firsthand, the game developers at DICE are constantly hard at work fixing bugs, eliminating exploiters, and listening to improvements for BattleLog. They hold video conferences to talk to the players to directly address concerns. It's an awesome company, and people love to destroy game reviews because of a singular concern, which is ridiculous. The truth is, the single player is gripping, epic, and fun, and the multiplayer is a blast and is expanding still. I'll leave it at this: You can't drive tanks through walls, strafe bases with helicopters, designate laser targeting for bombing runs from F-18 Hornets, and rip apart those planes with mobile anti-air vehicles in Call of Duty. Endless fun.
Not Cut and Paste
Single player is not all that great. Story is bland and gameplay has mostly been done before. That being said I still think It's still better than COD cut and paste, extremely linear campaign. Multiplayer is where Battlefield 3 shines. If you don't like teamwork and playing as a team don't waste your time and the BF3 community's time. The shooting controls are tight, the customization is mostly realistic and deep.(no stupid perks) The gameplay is just amazing there is so much to see and do. You can play this game for a long time and play completely different each match. I'm not just talking about classes but they way you play with defense and offense or the type of vehicles you drive and fly. Lots to unlock, see, and do. If you hate this game you either don't like shooters or you are playing it wrong. Everything people are whining about is because they are doing the stupidest highly avoidable things. Rambo COD players need not apply
Setting the Record Straight
Just because I cannot stand when people talk about things they do not know:
EliteEliminator is wrong on so many accounts. Obviously a COD fanboy, you can tell by looking at his game "previews".
Battlefield 1942, released on September 10, 2002
Call of Duty, released on October 29, 2003
Battlefield 2, released on June 21, 2005
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, released on November 7, 2007
Battlefield: Bad Company, released in 2008
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, released on November 10, 2009
Battlefield: Bad Company 2, released on March 2010
How could EA have “created Battlefield” to “copy COD” when the franchise started more than a year -before- COD started? And just to put a nail in that coffin, Battlefield 2 (a modern warfare FPS) came out over two years –before- COD4: Modern Warfare, so what’s more likely a latter game copied parts of the former game, or the other way around?
Here are some –real- facts:
Battlefield 3 is a successor to Battlefield 2. It is not a “sequel” to Battlefield: Bad Company 2.
Battlefield 3 has been in development for (at least) over 3 years.
Battlefield 3 will be using one of the newest, most powerful, game engines to date; an engine designed for “next-gen” consoles and games. (On the flipside Modern Warfare 3’s engine is 5 years old.)
Modern Warfare 3 is the product of the two MW games before it. It will be largely unchanged from the game that came out in November 2007. COD games have become notorious for this “copy and paste” scheme.
Battlefield 3 is also the product of the games that came before it. But, in this case, the product is something that has built upon and evolved since the release of Battlefield 2 in 2005. Battlefield: Bad Company was different from BF2 and BF:BC2 was an improvement from BF:BC1. DICE has used the last 3-6 years to learn. They have created a game that is similar, but not the –same-; which is more than what can be said for MW3.
One last bone to pick with EliteEliminator:
Battlefield 3 –is- a tactical military game. Modern Warfare –is- not. Tactical means tactics are used. The gameplay style of MW (and all COD games by extension) is not that of a tactical shooter. Anyone who has played the multiplayer should be able to discern this. With all of the different factors and variables in BF3, one –must- use tactics to overcome obstacles.
An example is trying to assault a player who has put down “suppressive fire” with his LMG, you’re stuck, you can’t get to him, and he has teammates moving to flank you, what do you do? Retreat? Call on a squad mate that has the tools to take out the LMG? Toss a grenade his way? Etc? There are multiple options you could take and the “tactics” you decide to employ will determine whether or not you, and/or you squad mates, live or die. That is a real –tactical- shooter.
What it really boils down to is this:
-Your- preference of gameplay.
Would you like frantic gameplay in which you team doesn’t really have to work with you? Where “skill” is determined by how fast you can “twitch” your fingers? Where the game’s maps are made of mostly closed quarter areas without much scale? Where, even though it is set in the present, combat vehicles are few and far between?
Then Modern Warfare 3 is for you.
Would you like tactical gameplay where teamwork is not only encouraged but rewarded? Where “skill” is determined by more than knee-jerk reactions? Where the scale of the battlefield is larger than anything you have seen before? Where the face of the battlefield is literally always changing? Where you can run and gun, take down infantry and blow stuff up with a tank, blow up tanks with helicopters/jets or, you know, blow just about anything up?
Then Battlefield 3 is for you.
Lets protect this game.
I would like to be able to regularly play this game (online) without the nuisances of hackers ruining the experience of it within a few months because they are not actually good at playing the game-or can't stand to be fragged by a lucky noob. The game developers should strongly consider the importance of keeping the game pure and unmodded. I do NOT buy a game for the mods! I buy the game for the initial appeal and relative game purity that it comes with being a new title. In other words, the hackers haven't had a chance to ruin it yet being a new game. Lets take security seriously with the preservation of the game files-lets actually try to keep out the hackers. Otherwise, online play will be a hack versus hack realm where the honest full-price paying customer gets robbed-and never wins. The game makers will attract MORE customers if they can keep the playing field level and the cheaters and their IP on a world wide permaband.
Thank you God.
Ive been waiting for this game for years now, finally my life has meaning again. Sorry CoD and KZ... no other shooter will have anything on this game as long as its 1% better than the original PC BF2...
Console Port to PC?......guess again
For those hoping it isn't a PC port from console........Read your GI that came out Saturday and the 10 pg spread dedicated to this game. They already said it will be MADE for PC with part of their team focusing on the Consoles (their team is big enough to share the love between PC/Console). They pretty much touch alot of the questions already being asked here in the previews (yes they are doing away with the BFBC characters since this is going back to the sequential BF1942 / 2 / 2142 line of games). Yes they are blending in the destructable environments of BFBC2 but on a much larger scale with the Frostbite 2 engine. All I have to say is read the interviews before posting here because I bet your question will be in there. Be ready for an epic game in all regards coming this fall.
Not a COD clone...
The Battlefield series has been around longer than some of the little kids that play COD now... If anything, COD is an awful condensed version of Battlefield.
Good bye Call Of ****, here comes the BEAST!
This is choice, just amazing. After the beta is released, bye bye COD. And after the game is released, total terror will become reality. Now I don't like COD but COD3 and Black Ops are actually good. When this game comes out they won't see the light of day for a long time. If people purchase the next COD over this game they are either casual gamers or are just dumb. Battlefield for the win!
