Battlefield 3: Underwhelming PC demo left me wanting more

Sarcastic Gamer: "Back in the day, I played the hell out of Battlefield 1942 and Battlefield 2. All I did was PC game. Years later, the newest iteration of the Battlefield franchise is upon us and I got to spend quite a bit of time with the Alpha build of the PC version of Battlefield 3′s multiplayer at a fun EA event at PAX. While it would be easy to praise the graphics, my PC version of Battlefield 3, in all fairness, won’t look that way. I won’t be playing it on the same type of computer, with the same mouse and keyboard, using the same giant monitors set up so nicely for us at the Westin for the big Battlefield 3 Event. But, this is how I was going to play it and whoa boy, it’s a treat..." (Battlefield 3, PAX, PC)

i was thinking the same thing after a few hours with alpha.

I had all but convinced myself this was just gonna be bc3.

But then caspian border trailer came out.

wow shadow really?

so you're gonna tell me everything about operation metro is going to be different at retail?

are they going to add jets and choppers? perhaps scrap the entire map and rebuild it from the ground up.


I guarantee you other than some gameplay mechanics and probably some spawn changes Operation Metro will be the same map. you can put that in the bank

Someone said in an article that it looks nicer than the fault line trailer now. Like in the alpha they didn't have texture tessellation and stuff like that.

Plus the alpha was rush and on a small map(compared to the other maps) with no jets. Don't worry. It will be like BF3 on release. I'm sure of it.

I actually thought the alpha felt nothing like BC2, even though it was Rush mode.

All we have to do is wait for the beta to see if we get a 64 person map to try.

He is more disappointed he didn't get to play a big map with planes and other vehicles than he is with the actual game, since once you get into the actual article he does nothing but praise it. This is just a case of putting up a misleading headline in order to get clicks.

This just proves a few things:

-Sometimes if you want the best graphics, you need to pay to play.

-The guy played the alpha at home on a mid range PC, then went to PAX. He then cries that his mid range PC doesnt look as good as a high end PC

-The Guy played the same map at PAX as he did at home, so there wasnt much change from what he had seen "underwhelmed"

-they guy had his travel expense paid for and was with friends and food, yet still didnt have fun. What does that tell you about him? He's a hard to please ninny.

I'd venture to say that anyone else would have loved to go to PAX given the chance, and to see Battlefield 3 in all its glory. Some people just can't be pleased, no matter how they are pampered.
