Definitely better than CoD but not a great gameCheese4395 | May 7, 2015 | See all Cheese4395's reviews »
I've never been a fan of Battlefield and would call myself a CoD fanboy, but after I was bored with CoD I decided to give Battlefield a try and it helped because it was free on Origin. Multiplayer I played the game and I thought it was definitely quite challenging coming straight from CoD but it was a lot more fun no doubt. After playing for awhile though I quickly became bored as it is the same old same old. Maybe the expansion packs would have helped but I digress. It is definitely a step-up in-comparison to CoD but mind blowing. Single Player Great single player, nice campaign that gets you comfortable with the guns. Nothing more to say. Standard fps campaign. Not mind-blowing but enough to quench your thirst. But who really thirst for fps campaigns.
Going back to what made Battlefield greatMikeyMiG | April 20, 2015 | See all MikeyMiG's reviews »
Prior to Battlefield 3, the only Battlefield games on the Frostbite engine were the Bad Company series and Battlefield 1943. While fun titles, they lacked a lot of the features that made the Battlefield franchise stand out from the back. Battlefield 3 brings back many of these features, such as 64 player battles, larger maps with Conquest-oriented design, jets, the prone stance, and more. Throughout the game’s lifespan, it brought a wealth of extra content in the form of DLC: 20 new maps, 20 new weapons, new game modes, and an assortment of new vehicles. All of this provides a lot of dynamic gameplay, and the game is still fairly popular to this day, especially on PC. Everything from the gunplay and the movement system were improved for this iteration of the series, and it is very much worth buying, even today.
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.
