Battlefield 3 Review: Enough Thrills to Overcome its Flaws


"When Battlefield 3 properly runs, it is the most impressive, rewarding, and entertaining online shooter I have ever played. The game is a triumph in gaming infrastructure and engineering. There are times when playing Battlefield 3 feels like taking part in a momentous event in gaming history. This is the new standard for the industry, and it is absolutely gorgeous.

However, my adoration for Battlefield 3 is bridled by DICE and EA’s gaffes and missteps. The game’s glitches and bugs can instantly shatter the overwhelming sense of immersion. The game’s campaign is a dull and insultingly familiar affair, one that attempts to replicate other shooters rather than create its own identity. And as we all know, Origin is a fucking nightmare. With so many glaring frustrations, one should wonder if the game’s flaws are even worth stomaching." (Battlefield 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 4/5

I didn't think the problems were all that bad.
