Who gives a fk about singleplayer in game that never been about singleplayer? Funny review, but other than that its pretty much waste of time.

His point though was that EA have stated in the past the the SP is as important to them as the MP but it's clearly a PR lie just to save face. I will fully agree that no one buys a BF or COD game for the SP but why should DICE get a free pass on it? They went to the trouble of putting a SP in the game so why make it redundant?

Still, who ever bought this gamefor it's SP is probably in dire need of antipsychotics meds.

No multi-player review. Not that I care, I own the game and love it. But, still.

lol the invisible walls, there are lots of it in the game (in the MP too) and the jumping over obstacles is horribly flawed...

"horribly flawed" is a little over exaggerated.

Sums up my experience pretty well.

I'm surprised he didn't address not being able to see anything because of the lighting effects at night (namely, the headlights).

Not surprised by his review. Yahtzee usually criticizes shooters and multiplayer-oriented games
PirateThom  +   1557d ago
Yes! I do remember repeating that bit several times because the game just decided I couldn't escape yet.

On the flip side though, for what it was, I thought the single player was fairly interesting, but you don't buy BF for single player, you buy it to play online, fly a jet, lose control, bail out and then parachute gracefully to earth for 3 minutes, only to be blown up by a tank.

im looking forward to his review of U3 and see what his reactions are to the game :D

was a lot like smoking was for me. Before I was able to actually get it, all I could think was “OH man as soon as I grow old enough…” but then I actually grew old enough and thought “…well shit…now
I don’t really WANT it.” to which I came to an epiphany, that’s what they were going for from day one, to which I thought “You clever, cocky, bastards!”
