Battlefield 3 - Limited Edition (PS3)
Advantages: Graphics, gameplay, pretty much everything
Disadvantages: People are too good
There is a constant debate as to whether Call of Duty of Battlefield is the better shooter/war game. In my opinion they are 2 completely different games that should not be compared. COD focuses on intense, quick, close combat battles. Battlefield is entirely different. BF3 was highly anticipated, ever since BF2 which was released years ago on the PC, never a consol. There have been a few releases since then under the BF Bad Company Name. BF3 is the first proper release since the second, and was well worth the wait.
It needs to be stated that this is not a game for people whi enjoy single player games. The entire focus is around multiplayer and whilst there is a single player option, I have never played it and have failed to meet anyone who has stuck with it. The multiplayer is truly fantastic, with the online set up working fantastically well. The servers generally work well and there is more than enough choice of servers and opponents to play against. Games are easy to set up and quick to join. It is essential to have a good internet connection to make the most of the multiplayer. I would recommend a 10mb broadband package, as that's what I use and it seems to work well (that being said I don't know too much about technology so not sure in min requirements).
The game is run of Frostbite 2 engine. This results is superb graphics. The maps and guns look truly beautiful and there are few games that can compete graphically. The best aspect of this engine is the fully destructible environment. I hate linear games that make you follow set paths. BF3 allows you to manipulate the terrain to allow you to gain the upper hand during a battle. This can range from blowing a doorway in the side of a building to avoid incoming fire to completely levelling and entire building with a tank to kill the enemies hiding inside.
There is a good range of weapons and upgrades available. The level up system is what keeps me coming back. The more points you earn by killing enemies of completing objectives allows you to level up, ultimately unlocking more powerful weapons. There are plenty of maps available, especially with the limited edition game which gives you the back to Karkland (I think that's what its called) expansion pack which gives you the classic BF2 maps but adapted to work with BF3 free of charge.
BF3 has some beautiful maps. They are massive in size and can result in long battles which keep you hooked. The large maps can get annoying if you are on foot but luckily there is a large selection of vehicles available. This is where BF truly leaps ahead of COD. Ranging from humvees and tanks to jets and helicopters, the vehicles can be used to give you a huge advantage over the enemy and cover the large maps quickly. Driving the vehicles can take a bit of getting used to, especially the jets but are great fun when you get used to them.
The game can be picked up for around £25 now, which is well worth the many hours of gameplay that you will ultimately get from it. Its available on PS3 xbox 360 and PC. I like consol games as you can just put the disk in and play, where as on PC you need to stupidly high spec to be able to play with no lag and a decent graphic setting.
There are very few faults with this game, apart from the people who are ridiculously good and dominate matches!!
Summary: Buy it now!!!!
