In-depth Review: Battlefield 3 - Electronic Theatre

Of course, launching at the tail end of the year, and practically going head-to-head with Activision’s industry leading franchise, Battlefield 3 has to pack plenty of content to compete. Name alone might be enough for some, but there are plenty of gamers new to the franchise that may find migrating away from Call of Duty a bigger challenge. That Battlefield 3’s single-player campaign is relegated to the second disc is indicative of DICE’s intentions for Battlefield 3. The series built its fanbase based on the multiplayer aspect of the videogames, and were it not for Battlefield: Bad Company’s insistence on characterisation it’s highly unlikely that there would be any campaign to speak of even today. (Battlefield 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 68/100

Times must be tough.

Single player was the second disc, but it seems that's what all the reviewers played first.

Great looking, great sounding....fairly average gameplay. Vehicles are the stars of the show. Destruction is dialed back significantly on consoles.

Exploitable boosting is rampant but thankfully Dice is banning these cheaters.

I would hardly call the gameplay average, at least online. I havent had this much fun in a shooter in a long time. But thats just one mans opinion.

If you think Bf has average gameplay,cod must be sub par. And what makes you say the destruction is dialed back just on the console? This is the same engine for pc and the console was lead platform.

gameplay is fine..

but SP campaign mode was pretty disappointing. Nothing special. I thought Medal of Honor SP was better.

MP was fun!

I wish reviewers would rate the single player and multi player separately (for all games). That would probably give a more accurate review of the drastically different game play a user will experience. ...But I guess and overall score is pretty useful as well.

Really? A 68/100...wow. Tbh I wouldn't review BF3's SP together with the MP.

MP is just wicked, and addictive. SP wasn't bad though, but shorter than I expected. Reviews are opinions now.

Another struggling website searching for hits by giving a crappy score to a game that deserves more than a 68....

SP is not bad, multiplayer is awesome if you know how to play....give it a couple of patches and some further DLC and this game will be a MP masterpiece....

i dont feel this was a honest review. just for hits and i felt like he was leaning towards mw3 the while time since he mentioned the game way to often. plus it seems like he only played the game on the 360 as well
