OXCGN’s Battlefield 3 Massive Review: Multiplayer Masterpiece on PC?

OXCGN:

"For what’s already a sub-genre of action games, first-person shooters come in a lot of different flavours.

We have the sci-fi Halos, Resistances, Killzones and Half-Lifes; the run-n-gun Serious Sams; the tactical Rainbow Sixes and Ghost Recons; the RPG-like Bioshocks, Chronicles of Riddicks and Deus Exes; and the booming popularity of the war shooter with Medal of Honor and Call of Duty.

Battlefield 3 belongs to this last group, but goes a bit further to the point where it can be classified as a massively-multiplayer shooter (at least on PC) with numerous smaller gunfights taking place across a massive battlefield indoors, outdoors, on land and in the air all initiated by the social Battlelog system."

Note the 6.5 is for single player, multi is separate and is 9.5 (Battlefield 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 9.5/10

It's a shame they didn't do more with the single player. You can't just say: it's primarily focused on multiplayer and then just tack on a single player, just to compete with COD.

Yeah I know some say "it shouldn't bother with single player it has always been about the multi", but I'm happy they put it in.

They probably should have taken longer with it and made sure both modes were great though.

I can't even bring myself to finish the single player

The single player was awesome, and wasn't tacked-on at all.

Anyone who says it is hasn't even completed the first mission. Sure, it felt a bit tedious at a few points, but it was a solid experience. Certainly not a 6.5.

So are you saying that the single player is as good as, say, the awesome Bad Company 2 one?

Bit better i suppose , can't say the cod ones are any better though , same sort of thing.

Multiplayer masterpiece is an apt description.
