Xboxer360's Dave Burns writes: Battlefield 3 was probably my most anticipated online FPS this year, it had a lot to live up to from the amount of advertising EA poured into it over the last 9 months but was it enough? Ever since the beta I had my doubts, the beta was riddled with glitches, bugs and crashes, bullets floating in the air, people glitching under the ground and random disconnects. Did DICE dig their own grave by releasing a shoddy, crumpled beta?
Possibly. In my opinion DICE released the worst map with the beta, it didn’t really show off the power of Frostbite 2 and it certainly didn’t demonstrate the power of vehicles.
