I played the original CoD and BF. Then took a break till CoD MW2. I stayed with that game until a recent humble hundle sale and got BF3 even though it had been out for quite some time. I moved into the game and after taking my bruises and lumps had a lot of fun. I am now moving to BF4 while its new but BF3 was very enjoyable and the community I feel is a vast improvement over CoD.

Coinciding with the release of Battlefield 4 I decided to play through Battlefield 3. One word comes to mind whenever I think about this game.Epic! Battlefield 3 has everything you would want in a great first person shooter. Great graphics, gameplay, multiplayer, and campaign. This game appeals to both casual and hardcore gamers. If you like working as a team to reach an objective this game is for you.

I love this game for so many reasons. Not only is this one of the most visually appealing games of this generation, but it is also amazing as game play goes as well. While the single player campaign is way too short, the online functionality delivers. From infantry battles that cause mass panic throughout, to tank battles that rain metal, to the dogfights above all of the chaos, where the aces reign supreme. The weapons are incredibly well balanced, and each class has its own unique abilities. One thing is offset though- in rush, if the advancing team has enough assault players, they can easily push back the defenders, as the defenders can't afford to use the assault class, as they have to combat armor. Either way, it is a small flaw in an otherwise amazing game. The battlefield franchise delivers. This game is a testament to what all FPS should be.

Lets face it, the campaign is crap. It tried way too hard to be Call of Duty, yet Call of Duty's campaign is terrible as well. The multiplayer is amazing. When you're flying dirt bikes around and blowing up tanks in a suicide run, the game is hella fun. I would say TDM is the least fun, since it doesn't include vehicles or big open landscapes like the good maps do. At 20$, I would suggest getting End Game DLC, as it includes Dirt Bikes and other really good maps. This game is a blast, just a shame it is put out by EA. EA has DLC up the kazoo, and it is terrible in this case. The expansion packs such as End Game and Aftermath are fine, but the shortcut pack allows new players to dominate the battlefield because they have all the weapons and vehicles and such. I would suggest buying this game if you have a friend or two, just so you can ride around and have fun.

I played the game for roughly 50 hours before I just got to me.
While I was playing BF3 online, at the most random times i would get shot and have not a single clue at where I was being shot at. That was the main problem I had with this. yes, in a actual war that is very possible. But It's just not in my personal taste. So, naturally i spent more time in a tank than on foot.
If there was a thing I would recommend to the dev, was that don't make it like a 2 hit kill thing, it barely gives me a chance to fight back. But overall it's a good game.
