Battlefield 3 PS3 Game Review
Let's get this out of the way first, the campaign is not the reason to play this game. Most true BF players will skip it because lets face it this isn't what battlefield is. Saying that the campaign is nowhere near as bad as people make it out to be. It's just a generic FPS campaign that you've probably played everywhere else minus the Michael Bay quality of action. The main reason why I think most people harp on this campaign is the fact that it never truly has any wow factors like other games in this particular genre. You would think that a game like battlefield would have a campaign with a wow factor like lets say Bad Company 1+2 which had excellent single and multiplayer. Anyway the campaign is just average and in my opinion is worth playing just a few levels in to see if you like it or not.
This is where this game truly shines, like it always has. Multiplayer is battlefield domain and honestly has the best online experience and while it lacks the speed of one game everyone already knows about it makes up for it with great team play and smart tactical playing. There is a metric ton of unlocks from weapons to weapon attachments to vehicle upgrades you'll more then likely unlock something at every level. There are a few game types (Rush, Conquest, TDM) and these feel incredibly smooth and enjoyable to play, especially if you have a strong team. The maps are varied, open, and expansive. No two games will feel the same when you play on the maps.Most of the maps have vehicles ranging from Jeeps to planes and each is fun to use and the skill level required to pilot them differ they are a blast to play, especially tank on tank battles. This is the single best online FPS game period hands down. Though understand this, there is a learning curve and the action is heavier but it will satisfy those who like tactical action over run and gun style gameplay.
Even though this is the PS3 version it still looks beautiful, not to be out done are the stellar sounds you will hear in this game. Every weapon sounds like it should but most impressive are the jet and tank sounds. They both have a distinct sound that spells probable fire death for anyone caught in there destructive paths.
Any fan should be pleased with this offering as it is the best in the series and new comers may have a bit of a learning curve but it is fun none-the-less.
Battlefield 3 9/10
+Deep rich multiplayer experiences
