It's above and beyond its console counterpart, not to say the console version is bad...because it's not. The ultimate BF experience is to be had on PC.

That 93 may change now because of Jim fucking Sterling.

Ya. The guy didn't know what he was talking about "tanks or sluggish" - ya. until you click down the sprint button. Then they're as fast as cars. "horrendous texture pop-in" - been playing console version all day and I haven't experienced one bit of texture pop-in.

I wonder if he even played the game for more than 2 rounds...


It's Grimm Sterling...If he isn't known as the Simmon Cowel of gaming, he will come and steal the last box of twinkies you might have lying around your house as he sluggishly runs away laughing.

yes because metacritic is so deterimental to how much you enjoy a game.....

HIs review was honest and opinionated and he wasnt afraid to deduct the faults from the OH SO IMPORTANT score!!!111

Every other reviewer cited that the campaign was forgettable and generic and expressed dissapointment at the limited co-op but none deducted score from the game for that.

Its just another generic modern warfare shooter with a decent MP component that will be fun with friends, its nothing special and sure as hell doesnt deserve to rank in the top PC games at all, BF2 was 10x the game this is and apparently this is the biggest BF game theyve made?

The single player portion isn't all that! Dice has alot to learn in the narrative department! Resistance 3 had a much better campaign in my opinion than this! But hey its battlefield, The multiplayer is beast!!!!

Agree. "Universal Acclaim". Depends really how picky you want to be. The score suggest that but the reviews themselves seems to clearly point out the story mode is flawed (Joystiq in particular). It seems a lot of these scores are being held up by multiplayer alone (from what I have read)

It just isn't as entertaining as i would have expecting... i know COD is just cheezy, but its that umph in the campaign that i like soo much.. thank goodness this campaign is so short! i dont think i could handle a 8-10 hour deal like this! Still The multiplayer is the game here! and that DICE excels... Dice should give the story portion of the game to NaughtyDog and let them craft it! :-)
