Is the Battlefield 3 campaign boring, repetitive, or linear...or all three? A shockingly low amount of BF3 players have completed the single-player campaign.
I'm actually enjoying the single-player. I think people underestimated how cinematic it is.
I enjoyed the first campaign level, but I'm taking advantage of the surplus of people on the MP servers while it lasts. 24 player games are fun - the 12-18 player games we'll see in a few months aren't AS fun. Maybe the dedicated servers will fix that? Anyway - in summation - The MP isn't a "lasts forever" experience, while the SP will be there for a day when the servers crap out, or when there aren't a ton of people on.
i want to play the damn thing BUT IT KEEPS CRASHING ON PC FFS !! still waiting for a fix
I haven't even touched it. Its all about mp with this game.
I havent in CoD4, BLOPS, BC2, or BF3. I could care less.
^ Solar - did you play Bad Company 1? I loved the campaign in 1 - it was lighthearted and funny - it didn't take itself too seriously
I got through the first level when the online servers weren't working. Once I finished the first level I was anxious to stop and try and get into a mp match.
Maybe cause their all playing online?
Well I am not surprised. Considering most review told people to avoid single player and the rise in people just playing multiplayer. Also a big note to consider is that this is just raptr not BF gamers in general (barely 100,000)
I'm so sorry but I have to disagree with you there.
I watched some of the campaign and it looks like a really fun ride! Of course the majority of people buy it for the mutliplayer.
Its enjoyable enough for a FPS, but compared to the multiplayer, it's meh. Seriously, the multiplayer is addicting and a hell of alot of fun.
I just beat it earlier today. I thought it was a very good sp. Most definitly not the best out there. But it was well worth playing. And much better then the reviews let off. Now that I'm done with that, its back to mp :D
Im part of the 17% & it really wasnt much to write home about. It was pretty much Meh!
I wish the game had bots. But people want to enjoy the multiplayer while it is hot, we all can play the SP when we please........
I'm part of the 83% that haven't
same. prob never will either, could care less about shooter campaigns though not just BFs.
never liked th campaigns in any of them, got them all for mp only
i do like sci fi shooters and things like that, just dont like campaigns where my only enemy is humans with aks or tanks, they bore me to death and the inevitable helecopter part. i enjoy enemy variety and stories about things other than nuclear war/terrorists
just my opinion
Completed it on launch day on hard mode :P
Goes to show you what the fans want from BF. Also, they could've spent less money and more time fine-tuning the MP. Oh well, lesson learned, I suppose.
I beat it right away when I got the game to get it out of the way. Then onto MP why not get your money worth?
I'm the % who didn't even buy it lol
i played 3 missions and then went straight to MP and never came back to SP :D well BF was always about MP, i would like to see what the MP would become, if they weren't wasting time on the SP...
it wasn't time wasted, the campaign is very good.
Kinda makes sense, if I bought it I'd probably play multiplayer exclusively too.
I rather enjoy the campaign... I am, however, having FAR too much fun online with conquest/rush and co-op to return to single player... Uncharted pulled me from BF3 today, but I am torn between the two still. Both are AMAZING
I'm primarily a single player fan,but BF3's is overly cliche and ridiculously bad.The AI is one of the worst I've seen,both team and enemy.There is no teamwork,and enemies only seem to see you.This was similar issue in Bad Company 2,but it's much much worse here. The multiplayer is amazing like always.
I didn't think it was that bad but haven't gone back to it after starting it because I could just be playing the multiplayer instead... I think that is what a lot of people are thinking...Why even touch the campaign when I can have more fun in multiplayer.
After putting an hour in SP and co-op all I can say is a big MEH especially now that I'm enjoying Uncharted 3 SP... WOW now that's an amazing campaign. My girlfriend is watching me play it because she says she thinks it's almost like watching a movie. How am I supposed to go play the generic SP campaign in BF3 after Uncharted? You'd be crazy!
Amen to that brother, i've just started Uncharted 3 and it's utterly amazing!
Ive tried but i just got bored, you have to do the campaign exactly the way they want you to and you often find yourself in an endless cycle of bad-guys because you haven't done one little thing. Plus the AI annoys the shit out of me, same with BC2 the AI know exactly where you are and you cant flank them unless you're meant to in which case its ridiculous i.e. i shot a guy with a single bullet facing the other way and then had to reload (my bad) but he just carried on standing there.
The over use of the dust effect just got to me still havnt finished it.
I bet it
i enjoyed the campaign, everything followed through and it wasnt a COD tick tacked adventure. However, it was faulty in that there really wasnt much character progression, besides the one (SPOILER********************** ************************) where you decide to help dima, and kill an american soldier. After that, and before there wasnt much. BF still did tick tack some parts together such as the air strike, and tank men. Sure they tie up, but for the most part people dont want to play a single player experience based on seeing different POV's in the past. Having said that, I feel the single player is still just a tutorial full of bots. BF has always been about the mp, and thats where it shines the most.
Makes one wonder why they even waste the resources on SP for these types of games anymore.
Im only 15 minutes in so far. Its hard to care when Uncharted 3 and Batman are here.
