MediaStinger: "Another year, another Battlefield and Call of Duty. War. War never changes. Or does it? It’s been six years since Battlefield 2 hit store shelves and we’ve seen a new version or expansion to the series released every year since 2005. Activision’s latest Battlefield game looks to shake things up a bit in the gaming industry by making some big improvements to its graphics engine in an effort to dethrone the current king of entertainment, Call of Duty. But does Battlefield 3 actually go “above and beyond the call” of Modern Warfare 3 like it claims in its $100 million advertising campaign or does is it just another rehashed yearly Battlefield game that’s trying too hard to be the next Call of Duty like last year’s disappointing Bad Company 2?"
