Battlefield 3 is out for most of us in all corners of the globe with people patiently waiting, chewing there nails for this epic game and now it’s upon us. The game came to me with high hopes but I was very skeptical about the single player campaign and how they’d handle it, and to my dismay the SP campaign is just terrible and it’s almost preventing me from playing it through.

I love the graphics in this game and it’s almost enough to buy just to test out your machines and look at all the pretty scenery they really outdone themselves with it all so playing this with a large monitor is a must!! The lighting and the smoke really stand out though sometimes making you blind or confused or just adding atmosphere to areas of the game. Take your time to look around as I don’t think anything better will be coming along any time soon.
Gameplay: 3.0 (Single Player Campaign)
I found the single campaign just annoying and frustrating as its extremely linear and resembles the same shit Call Of Duty has been doing these last few years. Try to do anything aside from following your commands exactly and you’ll find yourself dead or stuck in a limbo where the enemy just respawns for long periods of time until you finally do whats asked off you. Apart from killing the mission enemies I wouldn’t be surprised if you could just sit back and watch most of this game. I hate games that are linear like this and don’t allow you to do what you like to me the game feels like i’m following a line and if I don’t follow that line exactly I myaswell stop trying to play it cause I wouldn’t get anywhere..
Sound is brilliant in this game and really makes you believe whats going on around you! In this game sound is a must and you should turn it up so you can hear your enemies so you know where they are unlike Call Of Duty where you can play your music full blast while you play because it requires little to no thinking. The bass is also very impressive in this game so you might wanna warn your neighbors haha
Overall Score: 9.3 (Without Single Player)
If I pretended I never played the single player than it would be worth the 9.3 score mainly because of the great multiplayer action that will keep you playing for years to come! If your computer can’t run this game at its highest than this is your perfect excuse for that upgrade you been wanting. Highly recommend the multiplayer but they really created a huge pile of shit for the single player but if your a CoD SP fan or you like having little to know control over your gaming than you might actually like it. Get stoned and watch the pretty lights and explosions cause that’s probably its only purpose.
I have no doubt in my mind that other websites and companies will give this game super high reviews on the single player campaign but lets face it most of them pretty much are forced to write that shit just so they can get free shit from EA but here at airbornegamer we are not gonna color a turd in pink and call it pretty. This games main purpose is Multiplayer so I guess this was always going to happen if you disagree tell me why below 🙂
