The graphics are amazing. The gameplay is amazing. The multiplayer is amazing. everything about this game is amazing except for the campaign. I didn't think it was very fun but that's just my opinion. I recommend this game to anybody. The vehicles really add a nice touch.
Great Multiplayer, Mediocre CampaignJoeKikAss | Jan. 19, 2014 | See all JoeKikAss's reviews »
I had gotten this game for both PS3 and PC with intention on playing multiplayer on PS3 and Campaign on PC, I ended up playing both on PC and loved it. The Campaign has a good story line compared to that of Bad Company 1 and 2 and the graphics are a huge jump in. The Campaign looks fantastic compared to other BF games (Except BF4). The real jewel to the game is the multiplayer, there is a large array of maps to play on and each map has it's own advantage for players using different kits. Battlefield games are never disappointing in that perspective, Multiplayer Battlefield has always out gunned Call Of Duty in my opinion. The biggest thing that is Dice is doing that some people are not a fan off, to play multiplayer you have to use your internet browser to search the servers. They are basically forcing the Battlelog upon players with this. There of tons of weapons with attachments to choose from, again each with their own advantages depending on your play style. I did not like the PC controls however, they're just seemed to be more of them compared to other games which caused a bit of confusion with my left hand unless you have a keyboard with macros the controls are sort of... off. Aside from that it's another great game from Dice

This is by far the pest fps i have played on PC. Amazing graphics. Amazing Gameplay.This game is just wow. From the single-player to the Online, I was amazed. This took over my life. I love the graphics. The mechanics are great. I recommend this over COD. I got deeply involved with the single player story. The game runs smoothly and performs well. I have had no issues. I bought it for 5 dollars from a sale and what a steal. I got my code for origin right that second. Highly recommended to any FPS fan. Battlefield > Call of Duty!
Better than playing Call of Duty.InsaneHien | Jan. 5, 2014 | See all InsaneHien's reviews »
For a game focused on multiplayer, I could say the Battlefield 3 may be the winner. I've personally only played CoD up until Black Ops II. I wanted to play a CoD competitor, so I got Battlefield 3 when it was on sale for $5. Man, that may be the best $5 I have spent. So much better than the same old Call of Duty.
This game has huge maps. I'm not used to playing maps that big, so I had to adjust to it. What else is there? 64 player battles on PC, that's the first I've seen. The game itself looks very nice. I put it on max settings @ 1080p. It looked so nice that I couldn't play the game until I had to turn down to medium settings for playability. I have an almost 5-year old GPU (Radeon HD 5750), but I'll be playing this again when I build a new gaming PC.
Overall, Battlefield 3 seems to be your average FPS with a focus on multiplayer. Way better than CoD. Most people have already probably moved to Battlefield 4, but if you haven't played BF3 yet, get it.

I am not a shooter fanatic, but this game is pretty good. I bought Battlefield 3 because it was over hyped. I ended up building an amazing gaming PC and I wanted to push it to the limits. Battlefield 3 does that. The graphics, and physics are amazing. The details in the game are wonderful. Vehicles are very fun once you get used to them. When I first started out, I just used a jet to get to a specific location and parachuted out. But after a while, you can get used to actually flying.
My biggest problem with the game is that it is just another shooter. This game is virtually the same as every other shooter out there. A game with little customization, but focused on multi-player.
