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!

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.
