GamingUnion.net: "Though just a small slice of the pie to come, the Battlefield 3 public beta may signal the defeat of its one and only rival, Modern Warfare 3. Remember that despite all the reported bugs and fixes that's still ongoing, Battlefield 3 comes packing with its own story and co-op campaign to complement the meaty online multiplayer mode. Battlefield has always been about online. It's not so much the story it's trying to tell as it is capturing that feeling of team play in a massive battlefield, that feeling of contributing to the bigger picture despite being only a small squad of troopers. The beta does admittedly have more bugs and issues than I can appreciate, but when it works, it works beautifully. After all, it's only a beta and what's a beta if not for ironing out these niggling issues?"
