Hello there, welcome to other review. Today I am reviewing a little known game called Battlefield 3.
Battlefield 3 Is a first person shooter brought to you by DICE, makers of other games such as Mirrors Edge, Midtown Madness 3 and Basically all the other Battlefield games. One thing that got me interested in this game when I first heard about it was the new Frostbite 2 engine. It "takes destruction, scale and immersion to unprecedented levels" That's what it says on the back of the gamecase.. And I can't find any reason to argue with that statement. They really did do a good job on this new engine.
There is three modes in Battlefield 3, there's the single player campaign, the Co-op missions and of course the multilayer and that's where this game really shines, but we'll get into that later.
Let's start with the single player campaign. So your this army soldier dude being interrogated by these other army soldier dudes and you have to tell them a story about a terrorist from Europe that wants to bomb the place to hell and they don't believe you even tough your telling the truth so you get your buddy, hit them over the head have a fist fight with a terrorist and then your DONE. You may have guessed the story isn't this games strongpoint, but some of the missions in the campaign are pretty fun.
The missions vary from Taking down a building with a rocket launcher to flying a plane to Rinding on top of a train and many other over the top things like that. I enjoyed playing through the campaign for the gameplay, but the story really wasn't much at all, so over-all the campaign was mediocre in my opinion so don't go into it expecting much.
Moving on to the Co-op missions. There are 8 Co-op missions, I enjoyed my time playing through them, you can play with a friend or play with a stranger through matchmaking, these missions vary from shooting your way trough buildings to driving helicopters and shooting moving targets at the same time and all that other army stuff. I recommend playing trough these with someone you know because sometimes you could get paired up with a troll that will stop at nothing to make you lose, you know how some people are. You get some extra weapons for the multiplayer mode after you beat all the Co-op missions so It's well worth the time to play them.
Now, It's time to tell you about the best part of the game by far, and that is the multiplayer mode. There are three main Multiplayer modes, those of which are Rush, Conquest and Deathmatch. Deathmatch is your regular multiplayer game mode first team to get a set amount if kills wins the game, and then there's Rush,
Rush is where you have to ether defend your own machine thing or blow up the enemy's machine thing, Please forgive my lack of knowledge about the machine things I really don't know what they're called.
And then there's Conquest which is by far my most favorite game mode, the main objective is to take over enemy territory while making sure they don't take over your territory, if the enemy does take over your territory you can just take it back. The team with the most points by the end of the game wins, but here's the interesting thing about Conquest, I rarely ever try to take over the enemy territory because in to busy flying an airplane or driving a buggy or flying a helicopter or taking down a helicopter, The maps for Conquest and Rush are huge unlike in deathmatch where the maps are shortened down.
You Level up or rank up by gaining experience points from the maches you played I think this system works pretty well, I think I got up to level 12 everytime you rank up you get an new item, I could be a gun, some camo or an attachment, there is also classes, you can be Assault Engineer Support or Recon, you can also level any of these classes to get items that can only be used while you are using that class.
I really enjoyed my time playing the multiplayer in Battlefield 3 even tough I got my ass kicked most of the time.
So, if your looking for a fun war game multiplayer experience pick up Battlefield 3 you won't regret It. read
