It delivers scorching multiplayer, fitting of its decade-long pedigree of famously expansive big-team battles, but stumbles over a generic single-player that feels lượt thích a different game.

Everything about their kiến thiết screams size, personalization, và the need lớn take creative initiative khổng lồ succeed. Choose to pop headshots from the prone position, spin barrel rolls in a jet outfitted with personal unlocks, or see how many dog tags you can knife from your opponents; Battlefield 3's multiplayer is about the freedom of choice.

Yes, certain areas feel empty và repeated bản đồ elements like shipping crates conjure deja vu, but the sense of scope is exhilarating. Where many online shooters teach you the nooks and crannies of every map, Battlefield 3 is a wide sandbox that encourages variety và exploration. Battlefield 3 shines in matches with 63 other players, where every bullet has a new enemy's name on it.

Running lớn the front lines.

Is the game play balanced? Battlefield 3's online teeter-totter comes down to personal preference. I've been pinned down at my spawn point in Operation Metro by a dozen, well-stocked snipers and I've taken over an entire conquest bản đồ single-handedly. I'm no Maverick in a jet, so I learned to lớn rain down hellfire from a chopper. For any class or tactic that doesn't work, like a painter's palette, Battlefield 3 offers alternatives. All four streamlined classes (Soldier, Engineer, Assault, & Recon) get their own problem-solving unlocks, so leveling each one is paramount lớn sitting on đứng đầu of the leaderboards. Battlefield 3's rewards and progression will keep you coming back khổng lồ its online rumble for a long time. From adding heat-seeking missiles lớn an Anti-Aircraft Tank to lớn simply changing camouflage, there's always a carrot dangling just out of reach -- if you can wrangle the score to lớn earn it. While the newly implemented Team Deathmatch modes encourage high kills & low deaths, Battlefield remains a team-based trò chơi where you can sit atop the scoreboard no matter how many times you've died.

From sun flares khổng lồ smoke bursting from a collapsing building, Battlefield 3's Frostbite 2 engine provides marvelous visuals.

Nighttime elements present a stark intensity, with glowing fluorescent sexposedjunction.coms dotting the cityscape and street lights blinding you from seeing enemies.

The engine isn't perfect by any means. I encountered prone legs jutting through walls, saw snipers half-buried in mountainsides, watched my dead body toàn thân stick through the hood of a jeep, và even noticed a story character float in a straight line from point A to lớn point B, walls be damned. I've seen flower pots float in midair, noticed AI soldiers in their shooting position long after death, & I somehow committed suicide by running over the lip of a crater. These glitches are annoying, but they don't break the game. But they bởi break the immersion of the story & in the case of an undeserved multiplayer suicide, cause unneeded frustration.

For those of you more interested in the single-player than multiplayer, definitely take note. Whereas both Battlefield: Bad Company games added a story underwritten with humor, Battlefield 3 takes a more serious path. Its tale of global threats reads lượt thích twenty years of military fiction thrown in a blender & turned into a checklist. WMDs? Check. Russians? Uh huh. Insurgents tucked into Middle Eastern alleyways? Yup. It's all there & woven into levels through the recollections of Sergeant James Blackburn during an interrogation (didn't we see this in hotline of Duty: đen Ops?). There's inherent tension in the threat of a terrorist attack, but Battlefield 3's feels like well-trodden ground.

In, you can't fly 'em.

Battlefield 3's does hit some memorable moments (especially in the graphics department), but as a whole it's trite and frustrating. The jams Battlefield 3's multiplayer into a linear box where freedom of choice gets thrown out a non-destructible window. There are only a few buildings to blow holes in, barely any vehicles khổng lồ take the wheel of, & quicktime events adorn enemy encounters in almost every level. While you can literally crash a helicopter on an opponent's head while parachuting to safety if you so choose in multiplayer, makes you hit spacebar at just the right moment khổng lồ avoid getting punched -- they're two different games. The co-op missions surround the events of the, yet feel more enjoyable as individual levels. Working with a teammate leads khổng lồ more creative approaches of attacks, though the same AI frustrations are in place. While opening doors & during other set animations, AI enemies gain invulnerability. They also have an uncanny ability to pick you out of the crowd.

Whether it's a grenade exploding without an indicator, a blast from an unseen enemy, or late-game quicktime event that introduces a new button, the and co-op levels are a minefield of frustration -- especially when cranking the difficulty up to hard. All told, it's a brief affair -- I burned through the single-player portion in under six hours, the co-op content adds another two or three.
