Battlefield 3 Co-Op Review (Co-optimus)

Nicholas Puleo: "The greatest war represented on video game consoles this generation is not set in World War 2, modern times, or even the future - it’s the war between the Call of Duty franchise and everyone else. EA has tried once before to settle the score, taking CoD head on with their Medal of Honor franchise with little effect. The latest attack has come in the form of Battlefield 3, a franchise who’s roots are in the PC but found new life with the Bad Company series on consoles. Battlefield 3 spans both PC and console and is definitely EA’s answer to Call of Duty, but does the focus on this war cost Battlefield 3 what has defined the series?" (Battlefield 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 3/5

Loved this bit (about SP, not co-op):

"The problem I have with the single player is that it’s simply uninspired, or perhaps, too inspired by Modern Warfare. There’s not a single moment in it that would make you say - “yes, I’m playing a Battlefield game.” It’s a completely handheld experience from start to finish with a very linear path. Perhaps the best example of this is the first “flight” mission. If you expect you’d be controlling a jet fighter against enemy jet fighters…you’d be wrong. Instead you fly as a co-pilot and simply “look at targets” to lock on and fire. I thought Battlefield was about vehicles?" BINGO!

Nobody buys Battlefield for the singleplayer.
