Battlefield 3 is the successor to the acclaimed game Battlefield 2. It includes advanced and innovative features like Frostbite 2, the incredible technology that takes animation, destruction, lighting, scale and audio to new heights, Feeling the impact of bullets and explosions, dragging your fallen comrades into safety, and mounting your weapon on almost any part of the terrain, and unparalleled vehicle warfare.
Although I say 10/10, I truly mean a 9.5/10. The only reason in the entire world that I wouldn't give Battlefield 3 a 10/10 is just because there were so many glitches in the campaign.
The story itself, is awesome though, and I loved every bit of it. That combined with the awesome graphics and destructibility of the Frostbite 2 engine, and we got ourselves a done deal.
Multiplayer... the greatest and most fun in the world. Nothing can beat Battlefield 3's multiplayer when it comes to visuals, audio, detailed landscapes, destructibility, character animation, and vehicle gameplay! Everything is always balanced out and whenever there is something out of that balance, it is quickly fixed in one out of the many patches EA and DICE provide.
DLCs for Battlefield 3 are always fun, amazing, and different. Sof ar only Back to Karkand and Close Quarters are out, and both of them are just pure fun to play. Back to Karkand brings back 4 classic maps from Battlefield 2 and Close Quarters steps up the game in some serious CQC. Close Quarters is also nothing like Call of Duty like many people who haven't actually played it say. Because of the realistic elements Battlefield 3 brings with the Frostbite 2 engine, Close Quarters gets even better with HD destruction, where you can literally create holes in the walls with just your primary, even secondary, and kill enemies though them. Also all these DLCs bring new game modes, weapons, and new vehicles to play with!
Battlefield 3 Premium is worth it as well! For just one payment of $50, you will get plenty of new things, like dogtags, exclusive pro tip videos by DICE developers, participation in Premium Only events, and best of all you will be bale to play all the upcoming DLCs 1-2 weeks before official release. There are also features on Battlelog that will be unlocked for you to use.
Overall, Battlefield 3 is one of the greatest games to date and is worth EVERY penny.
I purchased BF3 and MW3 about the same time. I was never interested in modern day shooter games (Big scifi fan) until I was over at a buddies house who was playing BF2. It was pretty fun, especially watching my buddy suicide bomb his own teammates. So, I decided to go out and purchase an X-Box 360 and BF3. While at the store I also picked up a copy of MW3 which I didn't expect to play much.
I never play campaigns, so I cannot express my opinion on that aspect of the game, but I can for the multiplayer. To me, this was one of the most dreadful online experiences I have ever had. First, finding a match was cumbersome and confusing. I wanted a deathmatch. Sweet, fast paced action that all shooters are known for. What I found was a game where I ran around for five minutes before I was either shot in the head or the game ended. I didn't give up! This game looked awesome in the videos I watched (even though the game did not look anywhere near that good even with the HD textures installed). I stuck with it. Surely something in this game would redeem itself. Maybe with more experience I would find it more fun, but as a noob I should be captivated from the start!
Instead I found the game to be slow and boring. I was doing great in close quarters, an art I had perfected over countless shooters from the days of Doom, Quake, Unreal, Halo and onwards. But the huge distances I had to cover just to find an enemy even on the smallest of maps was excruciating.
The worst part about this was that I convinced my brother to purchase BF3 so that we could experience this glorious game together. We finally gave up after two days. The game was just to boring.
We ended up playing MW3 and getting hooked. I'm not saying MW3 is a better game, it just fits our play style better. We prefer games that throw you into carnage and never lets up. For me, and my brother, this was not the game for acti
