"Seriously addictive, prepare to give up your social life."
5 stars"

Review by Mike on 8th November, 2011

This game should have been titled Battlecrack 3. While the single player campaign is short and rather cliche, where this title really shines in online play. Its just seriously challenging and addictive gameplay, the huge amount of gear available to unlock keeps you going for dozens of hours, and even after that there will still be loads of fun to be had.

Graphics are gorgeous cranked up on my high end pc, but the game is perfectly playable and still looks ok on lower spec machines. Still you will want a quad core and at least a 5770 or better to get any sort of decent frame rates out of it.

For the first week I had this game I barely left the house, playing about 40 hours. I'm down to 1–2 hours a day now and I'm still in love with it.

With four classes, various combinations of equipment loadouts, and all the tanks helicopters and jets to fly, there are just so many different strategies you can play this game with.

If you want to get hundreds of hours of fun and huge value for money buy this game.

If you have a job to hold down, studies to complete, or a family to spend time with you may wish to think twice before buying.

"The Will be BEST Battlefield/Mulitplayer Game Ever!"
5 stars"

Review by Leng on 10th November, 2011

Got the game last week, the graphic and sound is AWESOME, even on Low setting it look like on high setting in CoD, but when tune to ultra, it is unmatched.

For campaign, it is somewhat similar to Black Ops campaign where SPOILER you sit in an interrogating room and recalling your past action, just like in Black Ops, except for one is set in a modern day while another set in between WWII and the Cold War. SPOILER

For the Multiplayer, it is unquestionably Wonderful, especially when jump in into a full 64 player Conquest Large map like Op Firestorm, Caspian Border etc… And it is very very addicting, I find it hard to try to stop playing, round after round, I still want to keep playing.

Beside from some glitch in the campaign which is not so important since BF series is always known for its great multiplayer mode. The game is a must-buy! For CoD player wanting to try it out, and if you want to have a good time with it, then try play Objective, support your team by spotting, throw down ammo box/medic kit, repair tanks. And I bet you will find it hard to quit the game. Lol. For the score I would give it a 9.5/10. And it deserve a Game Of The Year Edition!

However as for this edition, you will have to spend 15USD if you want to get the upcoming Back to Karkand in December, but it would worth more than 15 buck since the expansion will include new maps, weapons, vehicle and best of all an upgraded version of the original Battlefield 3's Destructi­on 3.0.

Review by Rangimarie on 10th November, 2011

If you want to enjoy this game I suggest having a internet broadband connection and a fast computer to take advantage of the awesome graphics that this game has to offer. Some maps can get crazy with 64 players!! Fight on Land, Sea, or Air!! So what are you waiting for-! Click “Add To Cart”

"Awesome Multiplayer. Short Single player"
4 stars"

Review by Jake on 29th April, 2012

The Singleplayer part of this game is very short (About 5 Hours). While this is nothing new to modern gamers I still remember when a game used to take weeks to finish. The single players missions are full of action and excitement, just not enough of them. The Multiplayer part of this game has awesome expansive maps, huge teams battle it out in Conquest, Rush, Squad Deathmatch. This part of game is where you will spend most of your time. Days and weeks or even years of fun to be had. If your not into MP games then this is not something that I would recommend. Overall 4 out of 5 from me.

As bullets whiz by, walls crumble, and explosions throw you to the ground, the battlefield feels more alive and interactive than ever before.

  • Urban Combat – Take the fight to iconic and unexpected places in the USA, Middle East, and Europe including claustrophobic streets, metropolitan downtowns, and open, vehicle-friendly landscapes as you fight your way through the war of tomorrow.

Review by IGN

“…When you shut down Battlefield 3 and let the Frostbite 2-powered dust settle, it certainly has some problems. But DICE’s adoration of and expertise with the online experience permeates every aspect of its multiplayer. Regardless of the narrative missteps or the occasional glitches, Battlefield 3 offers an unforgettable, world-class multiplayer suite that's sure to excite shooter fans, whether they fired their first bullet in Battlefield 1942 or have just now heeded Battlefield's call of duty.”

IGN RATINGS FOR BATTLEFIELD 3 (PC)
8.0 Presentation
The multiplayer’s ro­bust, the browser-based launcher works well, but those who don’t play online won’t find much meat in the other modes.
9.5 Graphics
Frostbite 2 shines in multiplayer, single-player, and co-op.
9.5 Sound
You’ll hear every bullet whizzing by your head, and the crash of rubble all around you.
8.5 Gameplay
Traversing the enormous world feels great, on foot or in a vehicle, but the single-player’s quicktime events are just lame.
9.5 Lasting Appeal
Multiplayer unlocks will keep you chasing the dragon for months.
9.0
OVERALL
Amazing
