Well the title says it all really, it's a great shooter, if you enjoy battlefield 3 then you'll like this too, the gameplay is not quite as serious as battlefield 3 which means its also just as fun and means you should still be able to ind a match today. Single player is better than battlefield 3 purely because the characters are more fun and less serious than in battlefield 3, overall a great shooter definitely worth getting.

This game is fantastic and to be honest I enjoyed it more than Battlefield 3. Once having tried this gameout, there was no turning back, as it says on the cover, it defines online warfare. The teamwork necessary to successfully win a battle provides you with great sense of achievement and respect to other players that no other shooter can give! Sadly though this element can ruined by too many snipers not going for the objective but this criticism can be applied to Battlefield 3 aswell. The game contains a perfect battle formula, which is similar to that of rock, paper, scissors. Every class/veichle/gadget exceeds at one thing or another, however each one has a perfect counter(e.g. a tank can kill normal infantry, however if an engineer is around, he can then take the tank out), thus balancing everything out. This idea almost forces players to play as a variety of different classes in order to win, although a nice change of pace once in a while can open your eyes and realise that you might enjoy another class even more than you first thought.
The maps are fantastic, each map was unique and captured a great atmosphere due to the brilliant visuals and size. Although the big battlefields had some downfalls, especially in Conquest Heavy Metal map, people often found themselves at their base deployment with no means of transport, which left them with a very long run to another base, or they would just quit and pick a different map.
The main focus of the game is multiplayer however this game does have a single player campaign but sadly it's average and has no replay value. I wont spoil it for anyone who hasn't played it yet, but it basically gives you a front row seat in an action movie, which is fun, but only when you want to take a break from testing your skills online.
Overall its a great game, a definite must buy even if you are playing Battlefield 3 at the moment.
