Battlefield 3 Reviews

With Battlefield 3 due in North American stores tomorrow, reviews for DICE's military shooter sequel are starting to appear. Computer and Video Games quotes DICE's Patrick Bach saying: "It's always hard when you start a project to set the targets for quality, but that's kind of the only target you can set. That's a Metascore." So far, so good on that front, as the game's Metacritic score currently stands at 93. There are evaluations of the game on 1UP, AusGamers, BigPond GameArena, Computer and Video Games, GameInformer, Gamereactor Sverige (in Swedish), GameSpy, GameStar.de (in German), GameTrailers, IGN, and Joystiq.

What bugs ASeven? Dice spent the past month basically replying that the vast majority of beta stuff was fixed already so that's disappointing if true.

Well, the graphic clippings, being able to go below ground, all is still there, in the review copies. Like SpaceCaptain said though, there is supposed to be a huge (I heard it was 5GBs) day-1 patch to fix a lot of stuff.

I just checked on other forums, the game itself is only 11GB so that's pretty impressive.

I'm disappointed about the shitty single player reviews. I guess I'm one of the few who was really looking forward to a stellar campaign. Oh well, the mp reviews are positive across the board so far. I can't imagine the gameplay being better than BC2 but we'll see.

Eh, I'll be judging for myself. Frankly, most of these reviewers gave Black Ops a virtual blowjob over it's single player which I thought was one of the most boring SP shooters I've ever encountered. Then they complain that BF3's single player is too similar to Black Ops and call it trite and boring.

Apparently for reviewers it's fine to give CoD extra points for being 'cinematic' while taking away points from the competition for being 'too linear'. Just makes me shake my head at game reviewers in general.

Yeah, Modern Warfare is rapidly going the way of World War II where that's concerned.

Then you're pretty unimaginative and apparently also didn't play the beta?

I'm not. Gives me hope that it's a great Battlefield game in true multiplayer fashion. Fuck single player.

Maybe they put out the beta release for reviewers since we got the broken demo?

God another game told through flashbacks, I am getting tired of this.

Hmm, seems that everyone's unanimous in saying the single player rather sucks and that the multiplayer is where the fun's at. However it's distressing to read about many of the beta bugs still present at release.
