In this review, I will talk about Battlefield 3, a First Person Shooter for the PC.
Battlefield 3 has finally arrived and its set out to win the hearts of millions of people. The 10 years old franchise feels still fresh with a lot of new gameplay mechanics and a powerful new engine to help it stand out from other shooters.
As all other Battlefield games, the game shines through its multiplayer support which pits 64 players in a death defying war experience.
It also features a single player campaign which will have players completing a set of objectives based missions. To find out more, read our review.
To start my review, I will talk about the design and features of the game.
Battlefield boasts a rich multiplayer campaign, although those looking for a single player campaign may be slightly disappointed.
The game has always been about its large scale multiplayer battles, and fortunately enough, DICE has brought back that same intense level of gameplay in this new installment to a decade long series.
As soon as you start a multiplayer map, you will immediately feel overwhelmed due to the huge maps this game have. The game is best enjoyed with full 64 players on the map.
Its maps are so huge, that it is inevitable that you will not be able to go through the whole map in your first go. Thankfully, with addition of many vehicles at your disposal, you can quickly reach from one side of the map to other.
Battlefield will allow players to choose from four different character roles, which include the Recon, Soldier, Engineer and Assault. All these roles have their own specialty and a set of abilities and weapons that can be unlocked by leveling your character.
If you really want to shine online, you will need to level and play each and every role of the game.
Moving further down the review, Battlefield 3 contains a very interesting and addictive progression mechanic, which will definitely make players, come back for more.
The team based multiplayer encourages players to take on different roles; you can earn points by even healing or resupplying your team with ammunition. Every action you will do in Battlefield 3, a reward waits. The game is built on a very powerful new engine dubbed the Frostbite 2.
This engine makes explosion and smoke look extremely realistic. If you have a powerful system, this game can really impress you with its unmatched visuals.
Those looking for a single player campaign action in this game might be disappointed. Unlike its predecessor, Bad Company 2, the game does not have an interesting tale or humor added to its single player mode. The game takes things quite seriously and pits you against events that are mostly seen in other games.
You won’t be able to take part in large scale maps in the single player campaign mode, so if you want to see what Battlefield 3 can really do than play its multiplayer instead of the single player campaign.
To finish off my review, I would say that Battlefield 3 is an excellent shooter, it boasts a powerful engine all paired with huge environments and insane action amongst 64 players, what else would you want from a shooter game?
