Battlefield 3 Exclusive Console Review (PlanetXbox360)

From the exclusive PlanetXbox360.com console review:

"Easily one of the most prominent conversations amongst hardcore and casual gamers alike since the announcement of Battlefield 3 is how well DICE's new modern combat shooter will stack up to the legendary titan known as the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare series. I feel it would be irresponsible on my part to ignore Call of Duty in this review since one of the biggest questions on gamer's minds this Holiday season will be: Battlefield 3 or Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3? Well, with Call of Duty still weeks away from release it would be impossible for me to completely pinpoint a result. I do not mind admitting that since Battlefield 3's announcement, I have followed the game closely with a strong hope that it could topple Call of Duty's reign and begin what could possibly be one of the greatest competitive franchise wars in the history of gaming." (Battlefield 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 8.8/10

good trolling is subtle.

Anyway, I'm glad to see a console review.

the author actually comes out and says that BF3 multiplayer experience is better than the CoD mulitplayer experience.... wow.. balls for him to admit what most people already know..

Ya, but what I don't get is the fact that it looks like the campaign for BF3 is going to be criticized harshly when I never cared much for CoD's campaigns...Millions of people buy CoD for the online portion, I don't see why these reviewers act like CoD's campaigns have been at all interesting since Modern Warfare 1.

The xbox runs on COD, it's no surprise that they would give BF3 a lower score than they would COD. which leads me to believe that the only way to beat COD is to become COD, It's almost like reviewers think COD is the benchmark FPS game when it's not.

I am not a big fan of COD single player, I have not once even played Homefront single player but think online is great, and according to this reviewer the online portion of Battlefield 3 is better than anything we have seen on COD, so in my eyes that makes it better if true, and I find this an odd review because he kind of starts off like he is unhappy with the graphics then praises them?

It's called being scared. Battlefield 3 is scaring him. Genuinely scaring him.
