Synopsis


The ground shakes with rumbles from an explosion down the street. You hear disembodied shouts from your teammates. Bullets whiz by your helmet and explode on the wall behind you, sending chunks of concrete and rubble flying through the air. You're focused on your mission, but time seems to stop for a moment as you feel your weapon in your hand. Another bullet bursts against the wall, this time closer — and louder. That got your attention. There's no time for zoning out in the red zone. Meet back up with your team and make it off the Battlefield alive.

Featuring the powerful Frostbite 2 engine, Battlefield 3 utilizes every ounce of power to provide the most immersive shooter experience you've ever known. Get ready to hold your ground on the front lines of a global conflict, and keep your finger on the trigger as the missions take you from city streets in New York and Paris to the relentless desert sands of Tehran. Take on the enemy by yourself in single player, or team up with a friend for intense co-op missions. Featuring the all-new Battlelog system, you can track every hard-earned kill and achievement. When your skills are battle-tested, load up for a 24-player online multiplayer mode, where you'll bring the fight right to your enemy in 20 battle-ready vehicles. Strap on your boots and fall in, Soldier. You're being deployed to the Battlefield.

    EFFIN AWESOME

    I have been playing the Battlefield and COD games since the very beginning. I honestly believe you cant compare the two. Battle field is huge maps, tons of player s and tons of vehicles!! Just awesome. COD None of the above but very awesome in an other way, if your just looking for the "Soldier" experience. Battlefield to me is by far the best if youre looking for the real all around war expericnce and realism.

    Closest to real life war, but fun factor is there

    I'm very new to the Battlefield franchise and its something i had to get used to. First off im gonna say this game is a pretty realistic game. Shooting is kinda tough, not just a run n gun type of game where you get tons of kills quickly. (Halo, MW3) Campaign is pretty good, felt somewhat off though and i did run into some problems with software. Also didnt know a game could lag when not even playing online. Anyways, besides those small issues, this game has great graphics... probably the best and im a Call of duty fan. online play is kinda boring at times without buddies cause very few people have microphones, sometimes i have gone a few games with only chatting with 1 person. 90% of the maps in this game are bigger than the largest map in Call of duty, by like 3x or more... So gun fighting can be spread out too much Besides all of that, the use of tanks, choppers, buggies, and fighter Jets is something new to me. Having choppers and jets flying above you is pretty awesome, so while your sniping people on a rock, your buddy can be flying around a jet and taking out enemy air or even ground forces. Lastly this game can be a challenge to play, find myself getting way less kills than Call of duty games.

    Fantastic Multiplayer

    Great game. Graphics are beautiful if occasionally a little buggy in places. Although the story is average at best and has a little too much back and forth to coherently follow it is still so much fun to play because there is immense realism in the landscapes and locations. Multiplayer is tremendous. Expansive maps and vehicles give it the edge over those "other" games out there. Very easy for a novice to pick up and play and not feel totally out of your depth in the first 5 minutes. TWO THUMBS UP!

    I got into battlield because I was tired of plying cod with little kids. Single player alone may not be worth $60 but the multiplayer is incredible. The scale of battle is epic and the sound is top notch. Best fps for online.

    Best First Person Shooter

    I've been an avid COD fan for years, but their lack of innovation and "same game, new cover" approach has put me off recently. Battlefield 3 takes the fps experience to a whole new level. The graphics and animation is really what separates its self from COD. Everything from the destruction of buildings/vehicles to pulling a parachute after jumping off a cliff. There are different guns/perks for each class and it offers a style of gameplay for every player. The only problem I have with this game is the single player campaign. It feels too short and could have a better storyline. The multiplayer is why you buy this game. Best on the market. Battlefield 3 is paving the way for the future of FPS.
