3 out of 5 eggs Multi-player is fun. 12/20/2011

This review is from: Battlefield 3 Limited Edition PC Game

Pros:

The game looks great, but is very very GPU dependent. If you don't have a good graphics card, you should consider upgrading.

Optimized to run on quad-core CPUs. Love to see this.

The mult-player in this game is great fun. I really enjoy the balance between vehicles and infantry. It's not like previous versions of the game where you'd run/walk 5 minutes only to get blown up instantly and have to re-spawn.

Queue feature for full servers seems to work well.

The squad-based game play is great. It's nice to be able join a server and be put on the same team and same squad as someone on my friends list without having to worry about it.

Cons:

The single-player is terrible. The AI is non-existant. You can go behind enemies and shoot all around them and they will not respond until you're in front of them. Whatever, no one buys it for campaign mode.

Simple features have been taken out, IE taking a screenshot in game, screenshot.render is still a command, they save to a folder, why can't I just bind a key?

In game VOIP has been taken out, but is included in XBOX version. Seriously?

Origin is junk. There's actually a statement in the EULA stating that they can/will give your information to third parties. Cool.

EA Locked this game down, they basically want to make as much money as possible off of it. They control everything for it, no mods, no map packs, etc. I guess Dice forgot where they came from... Desert Combat for BF1942. If you want a map-pack or an update, you have to pay $15 for it down to the road. I remember when developers would offer updates to include vehicles, weapons, and maps for... free!

Differen

Other Thoughts:

I only gave it three eggs because I'm not a fan of where this game is going. There are thousands upon thousands of questions on EA's official website for BF3, and I have yet to see 1 official comment from EA. It's like they took our money and that's it. For them it is on to start making the new version of the game ready for next year, instead of updating the current and making it better for free. And they'll be sure to charge $60 for whatever "new" game they come out with next year.

It was completely opposite with BF2 and Desert Combat. I remember when the Devs were personally on the forums with players asking questions about how to make the game better, what features were missing, etc.

I'm glad I got it for half price!
