A direct-to-the-point, mini review of DICE/EA's Battlefield 3.
At first I was saying Battlefield never had Single Player, this is just a bonus so the game shouldnt be marked down too much. I still kind of feel that way, but the fact remains, Single Player IS there, and the scores coming in for it seem to be giving it a pass when its pretty mediocre. If it were SP only the game probably wouldnt be getting over a 5. I honestly would have preferred to play the Battlefield game proper, against bots with no story whatsoever than this tacked on campaign, like we used to at out LAN parties with BF2. Anyway, there should be a few more SP reviews so this doesnt get ignored.
I haven't completed the SP mode yet and it will be ages before I do. I'm fine with them adding an SP mode, fine w/e, but there's definately nothing wrong with making a game MP only when the Devs are plenty capable of making it a killer MP, just like the BF3 MP is ala Warhawk for the PS3. No SP, killer MP. Then again I think they are adding an SP mode for the sequel Starhawk so fml.
