But a perfect score - I guess I have always been of the mind there are only about 2-4 games in history (per platform) that would get a perfect score.

I like to think of it as a maximum score rather than a perfect score. Nothing is perfect.

You guys forgot to add a "3" at the end of Stronghold.

Despite the problems I mention in the review, BF3 is my favorite shooter of the moment. I felt the smaller maps and unlocks and other (imho) minor issues weren't enough to outweigh the sheer fun of the multiplayer game.

Keep in mind that it is a score for MP only. If I had reviewed the SP, the overall score would have not been an 8.

Plus, I gave 7/8 score to both Brink and Breach, and BF3 is better than both those games.

Thats cool - with a low top end of 8, I guess it makes sense, and one must always review here and now - not tomorrow, etc. But a perfect score - I guess I have always been of the mind there are only about 2-4 games in history (per platform) that would get a perfect score.

I dunno. Maybe that is just me. Like I said, I like it, just thought you would bring in a lower score is all.

Long time listener, first time caller!

Jag is an EA whore sellout!

Or, he just likes the game. Can't decide which...

Yeah good review JaguarUSF! Well said and I agree with the 8/8 BF3 earns. Don't forget the TOW and mines for anti vehicles, not just rpg's & C4.

Political freedom can only be preceded by economic freedom which is preceded by monetary freedom.
