The battle for first person shooter supremacy is heating up with the release of Battlefield 3, but how does the offering from DICE and Electronics Arts measure up?
X-Play's own Matt Keil took a look at Battlefield 3. From his Battlefield 3 review:
"Battlefield 3’s campaign exists in a strange grey area between a blockbuster action film and a ripped-from-the-headlines documentary, and ends up feeling flat as a result. The Bad Company campaigns suffered from this to a degree, but the likeable characters and snappy dialogue of B-company carried you through. Battlefield 3 has no characters to speak of, although an attempt is made to make your numerous companions stand out at times. Still, when the inevitable casualties began to mount, I felt nothing but confusion as to which mildly sarcastic guy we’d lost."
Ok, so that's the single player, but how does the multiplayer fair?
"If you’re just after the multiplayer, Battlefield 3 is a no-brainer. It has a scope and variety that simply doesn’t exist in any other multiplayer shooter. It can be tough to start out, and you’ll rage as you’re blindsided by players who know the map better than you and picked off by snipers in hiding places you didn’t even realize were there, but you’ll keep playing that “one more game” thanks to the sheer amount of things to do and the endless things to unlock for your soldier."
