Just as good as Battlefield 2yarkitty123 | Jan. 9, 2015 | See all yarkitty123's reviews »
Same amazing destructible environments, same great set pieces and weapons, and best of all, the same strategic, addictive multiplayer as always. The game is all kinds of amazing, right down to the graphics, and actually somewhat outshines it's sequel (longer development cycle it seems).
Overall a solid 8,5/10 game.

Battlefield 3 delves in to the belly of the beasts of War. You fight defend and kill, you drive and fly. the graphics are great and the play is spot on. Enemies die and kill as they would on a real battlefield. Cut-scenes are done right with mild annoyances when you die. However, this game should be a guide for the COD games in balance of mechanics and story.
Worth buying specially on sale.

I got this game for Xbox and PC (when it was free on origin) and I love it. You can play this game anyway you want. Do you want to fight in a tank, blowing up buildings, enemies, and anything in your path ? Then do it ! Do you want to fly a helicopter, shooting enemies, vehicles, and other aircraft ? Than do it ! Do you want to fly jets, shooting other jets down, bombing enemy tanks, and objectives ? Than do it ! Or maybe you just want to play as infantry. As infantry, you have four different classes to choose from, Assault, Engineer, Support, or Recon. Assault players specialize in assault rifles and healing and reviving teammates. Engineers specialize in taking down enemy vehicles with rocket launchers and repairing friendly vehicles.Support players specialize in Light machine guns and resupplying teammates with ammo. Recon players specialize in sniper rifles and scouting the area ahead of them with a flying MAV. There is so much more to this game than what I just listed, so if any of this interested you, I highly recommend this game.
Definitely better than CoDbcf623 | June 11, 2014 | See all bcf623's reviews »
This game was recently free to download on Origin, and if you missed that then this game is still worth buying. In my opinion, this game's campaign was highly underrated as the story kept me intrigued and the AI was actually decent. However, when it comes to games like Battlefield it is not always about the single player. The graphics are very nice, but the game has a blue tint to everything that may get annoying. The multiplayer was the best of any Battlefield that I have played with multiple different game modes, and a nice number of large maps that were very enjoyable to play on, and also just see the level of detail on them. As some have said a lot of players did move on to Battlefield 4, but there has been a recent surge of players and you're sure to have a good time.

Battlefield 3, even with all of its glitches was the epitome of a "Good FPS". With destructible environments and massive maps in which to simulate war with friends and foes alike. Battlefield 3, albeit not perfect, was very close to being perfect. The maps, the game modes, the DLC were phenomenal, yet the glitches and servers were not the best and sadly that is why it gets a 96/100.
