by Hayden0378 BEST GAME!
used to be a call of duty fan but when i played this game game i fell in love with DICE call of duty modern warfare 2.5 is bad compared to this game. BF3 FTW!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Cain84 Great game. Will be played for a long time.
I am a fan of both Call of Duty and Battlefield. Im not involved fight between the two. However, i do believe BF3 is better than the new CODMW on the PC because Activision has taken away a lot from the PC world. DICE did BF3 right by making it for the PC, not a port like the other games including COD, first then making it for the console. I admit at first there were some glitches in the BETA and 1st month release of the game but they have been fixed. The only reason why i gave the gameplay an 8 is because the story mode did not catch my attention all that much and didnt even bother to finish it. BUT BF3 is not a story mode game! Its a Massive multiplayer game and it ROCKS. So much fun. My friends agree. At first when they started to play they were upset because everone else had these perks on their weapons and vehicles that gave that individuale an upper hand... Well yes, play more and unlock them which they did and its great fun not. I hope DICE remakes BF1942 with the graphics engine because they are prime! Love that there are dedicated servers, im thinking about buying my own. DICE Good job on the game!
Rated 8 out of 10 by xXBrandonRRXx This Game is Not What I expected as a Veteren I am
Ever Since Battlefield Bad Company 2 has came out..I knew from that coming out Battlefield was going down in a bad start and Battlefield 3 is fun dont get me wrong..Im 97 colonel in Battlefield 3 with almost 800+ hours in this game..It has its problems..But it keeps out Hackers..That is why this game is the best out there right now..MW3 can't be compared as that game is a hackfest and you could hack your rank in MW3..What a poorly built game..Battlefield 2 from 2005 was what Battlefield is and Should be today..I hope DICE doesnt mess up 2143 or 1944 or Battlefield Bad Company 3. Im expecting better and I want a good Hit Registeration,I want the Battlefield has stopped working error gone for good. I want Commander mode along with 6 man squads. I want a team based game..please dice improve battlefield before I have to call it quits on gaming.. please..

Being a Battlefield player since the beginning (Battlefield 1942) I can honestly say this game is perfect. When I first saw the trailer on TV for it I literally thought it was an Army commercial just because of how real it looked. If you have anywhere from decent to professional gaming headphones be prepared to be blown away by the sound this game makes. This game draws your attention to the screen like no other game can. You are in the middle of war and you are breathing it in this shooter like you never have before. Yes, the beta had glitches.. but that's why it's called a beta and that's the reason EA released the beta so they know where the tweaks are in the game. I recommend this game to the fullest, all I have to say is be prepared, you are entering the most realistic war game created to date.
Rated 8 out of 10 by xD3thklokx Great graphics/great game to play with friends.
Been playing the battlefield game's from battlefield 2, 2142, bad company 2 and now this "battlefield 3" The game is great, has kinda a new feel to game play and it has great graphics. I like the new class and upgrade system. The point system is great. You don't have to run around just geting kills to rack up points you can just be a medic and help heal or though some ammo for your squad.
Something was bothering me. They remaster some of the old levels from battlefield 2 but to me or some of you agree on this but they shorten the map size and add a lot of buildings to the map that i did not like. Over all i think it's a great game until you have to pay for the Premiums. Back in the old day's map packs and addons was free, games use to cost $49.99.
Rated 2 out of 10 by deejayshy WORST EXPERIENCE EVER
I'd rather stick with the console versions. I bought the PC download version trying to save some time from buying the actual game disc. WORST choice ever. first off the game is 14gb and it took forever to download from their servers.. in a nutshell you have to install 3 applications to your computer before you even install the actual game, Origin, Impulse, some gamestop app...... and after 2 hours of installing apps, the actual GAME didn't install... I had to go into my C: drive and navigate to the actual game files and install through there. AND THE INSTALLING is not even done, I HAVE to install some gamestop app to install the game... and then the battlefield website launches after you install, then you have to launch the game from the website!
Rated 9 out of 10 by Rager5 BF3 opinion and Help
Picked up battlefield 3 a few days ago. Has been worth the 60 bucks completely. Graphics/Sound are unmatched by anything out now. A few things you should note before buying.
1. Head to nvidia.com and dl the BF3 test. Make sure you can run it!
2. If you cannot play this game at ultra or High you will be missing out on the experience.
3. Hardware: have 1st gen + i5 cpu and a 500 nvidia series video card or equiv.
4. This is not a single player game if you dont like muiltplayer do not buy. The campaign mode is fun but that is not where the meat of the game is. Campaign is meant to get you into the small story and use to the controls and buttons. (button layout is a personal pref, i stick with default and have no issues)
5. Check the date on reviews. If anything before approx. Nov 1st ignore. The game has been patched and runs flawless now.
6. If you want a killer fps storymode go buy crysis 2 and dl the patches, the dx11 pack and tessalation pack.
BF3 is a solid, fun and exciting muiltplayer fps. You will spend tons of time flying planes, blowing up tanks and sniping people til your hearts content. If you never liked a BF before you wont start now. If you loved em in the past then you wouldnt be readind this review, you'd be playing BF3.
Rated 10 out of 10 Just plain simple amazing
Alright, first time that I ever write a review. This game is simply amazing. I just got it today and all I can say is that if you want a realistic battle experience then you have to get this game (minus that you could die easier on the real battlefield). The sounds of explosions, tanks, jets, and gun shots are VERY realistic. I have not played anything that even got so close to the real sounds. This game does for sure mimic the real sounds (writing this with the background in the military). If you want an amazing game with state of the art graphics and sound then you have to get this. Sure there are still very minor bugs and no games is 100% perfect but Battlefield 3 gets very close to a perfect game.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Glowstyx A No Brainer
To start off I got to admit that the campaign in the game was very disappointing. I was expecting a good campaign story even though I know that battlefield has never had the best story lines. There are a some levels I really enjoyed, specially the one with the Russians and tanks, other than that it was very cliche and felt like a re-run of other games. The Co-Op mode was interesting and I enjoyed it more than the campaign actually. The multiplayer is where the game really shines and where everybody who knows their battlefield know is where it's at. Maps range from huge to urban small, a fan of possibilities when it comes to weapon customization and vehicle warfare. However, don't expect to have camo skins for weapons, that's not battlefield.
The new battlelog I think is a revolutionary launch system which tries to manage your stats and rewards more or less like any social media site (i.e. facebook, G+) and while it may get glitchy at times I think EA/DICE deserve kudos for the innovation at least for PC which of course is the system the game was made for.
Overall it's a very good game, very different from CoD if u want a more realistic feel to your shooter it's a no brainer. The multiplayer is very rich and exciting, however if your thing is campaign you might wanna stick to your CoD. A must get for online gamers.
Rated 7 out of 10 by RicketyRed Great game but needs a few tweaks.
So i picked up this game at launch and it was probably one of the better games i have played. The maps had great detail and the combat was fast pace and exciting. The classes felt distinct from so combat felt like it was flowing and fast. But a couple things really drew me away from the experience. The frostbite 2 engine is a good engine but it needs less dust. half the time i couldn't see what i was firing at, and the other half i spent prone in corners staring the gray textures. The single player plot felt like it was ripped strait from a Tom Clancy and majorly toned down in action and suspense. But over all the game was a satisfying experience.
