I too unlocked it via a Euro proxy, then reverted and surprisingly there were about 20 servers with about 10 of them having pings under 100.

Played from 1pm to 12 midnight, I know, loser, but no kids, no wife and for some fortunate reason I had that day off and my friend told me about the BF3 login bypass for early access.

Onto the micro review.

By far the best BF of them all! And I have been a loyal fan of every BF, with my favorite being BF2, then BF1942 then BC2, then BF 2142 but I hated BF Vietnam.

BF3 is friggin MIND BLOWING and very infantry heavy. The helicopters and particularly jets seem totally worthless and will have to be tweaked as they do jack shit in the game apparently and are very easy to blast away.

The troops though, WOW, play hard core, its perfect. The guns, the sound, the ENORMOUS levels, there is just no way to convey how friggin awesome this game feels like real war.

Graphics remind me of Stalker call of pripyat maxed out.

OH and my favorite: Tanks can have a top gunner as usual but the driver gets the main gun, a machine gun, smoke, and zoom ALL AT THE SAME TIME! You can swap out 3 perk slots, makes the tanks really ass kicking AND they have a boost speed by holding left shift down to make them fly over hills. They are easier to take out, but it feels balanced to me.



Bravo Dice, best BF yet by far and by January 2012 I bet it will be patched and tweaked to play perfectly.
