Battlefield 3's Multiplayer is Art

Ed Smith of IBTimes UK: "If Braid can be a game about America's policy toward nuclear weapons in the forties and fifties, then Battlefield 3's multiplayer can be about the on-going war of attrition between the West and faceless foreign threats during the 21st century.

"The game's online death-matches are between two sides, the US and the Russians and whereas the American boys sport clean shaven faces, the Rooskies are stripped of an identity by the balaclavas and gas masks that they wear." (Battlefield 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

If you're going to set a game in a certain time period, you should also make two sides so that is believable.

And on the comment about faceless enemies, DICE released an expansion that actually shows the Russian's faces.
