GameZone's Ben PerLee previews Battlefield 3, breaking down the co-op multiplayer and main campaign. He has a negative outlook on the game due to some poor game design decisions and the numerous bugs and technical problems that are in the game.
They did it to themselves with all their "We're gonna dethrone MW3"
No it was more everyone hyping it for themselves but thats the beauty of marketing, you dont even realise your doing it for them ;) I NEVER hype a game up by trailers or flashy stage demos, I wait until I see someone other than the game developers playing it or until I get hands on myself before I make any judgements at all.
Myself and the rest of the Battlefield universe think this, if the SP is good that's great, if not...oh well. But its the MP/CQ, that people want to be beyond outstanding. And it damn well better be.
Agreed. The multiplayer experience is what this game, hell the whole series, is all about. Thats what will make or break it. With that said, i personally do hope the single player is good.
Co op and single player preview only? Is this guy on drugs?
"Now, before I go too far complaining, I must indicate that EA had some serious issues with internet connectivity at this preview session" That might have been all EA was showing during the session.
EA's servers and their connectivity always seem to function horribly. Even now, I usually have problems connecting to EA's servers playing Battlefield 1943.
No, not him but you are. You didn't understand the part where he says multiplayer will come later because he was asked not to for the moment?
Battlefield games are always a mess at launch. It's the downside of having any actual ambitions.
I think it's too under hyped, needs more hype. Caspian Border on the beta showed me that.
Since this guy is only previewing the singleplayer/co-op aspect of the game then no, its not too hyped for its own good since realistically nobody was really expecting much from the singleplayer, or at least shouldn't have. Like i said already, BF is all about the multiplayer experience. Then again, although nobody should expect anything special from the singleplayer, you would at least expect, or rather hope, that its a short enjoyable experience. But this preview doesnt sound encouraging.
Thought the beta was fun......
WHO FREAKIN CARES ABOUT SP ANYWAY???? everyone knows that MILLIONS of people will lose hours of sleep playing the MP anyway.... and yes the beta was SUPER fun (without the few bugs that were pointed out)...
The writer of this article is a moron
Yeah that's why its called a preview build. ITS not the final product. Its close to the final product but still retains most of the bugs found in a beta build. *sigh*
yep, way too hyped
It will deliver.
Just look at N4G. Battlefield 3 is almost at 200k degrees. Now that's over-hyped, overrated. It's bound to disappoint. Just look at Modern Warfare at only 26k degrees, yet it will sell 25million copies.(about 3-4x more than BF3). Hype isn't good. You set yourself up for disappointment.
No, N4G is a BF fansite. I have been following stories on this site and every positive or bias BF article coming from never heard sites or writers are widely published. N4G actually nerfed Modern Warfare 3's popularity, by separating "Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3" and "Modern Warfare 3" and did the ridiculous, as either two goes high in the ranking, it always reset to a number somewhere in 10th position. N4G is another Bf fanboy site.
I just hope they ironed out a lot of the multiplayer issues, because when it played good it was a lot of fun in the beta. <crosses fingers>
