I've been playing it since release and this is my impression so far.
First, graphics. The graphics look good but of course are not ground breaking. Some textures on the PS3 look a little rough, but honestly I don't even care that much about that. For the most part the game runs very smoothly for all the action and crazyness going on. Explosions and rubble flying around after an explosion look great and add to the experience. Also if you look down you can see your FEET! Wonder of wonders!
Sound- I REALLY like the sound effects. Some of the sounds are just amazing, like being near a building when it is blasted by a tank, you hear chunks of rubble hitting the ground and it sounds very realistic! Different weapons have their own sounds (to an extent) which I also like, and there's lots of ambient sound effects to really get you in the atmosphere.
Controls- The controls are almost exactly the same as Bad Company 2 with the exception of being able to go prone. I like this control setup so no complaints from me. And, I like being able to go prone, sometimes it saves your butt when somebody is shooting at you!
Gameplay- OK, I'm gonna admit right here, I bought this game for the multiplayer. I played a little bit of the single player and it's pretty meh. Multiplayer is a blast though. One thing I have always loved with Battlefield is the chaotic feel you get sometimes of actually BEING on a battlefield. And of course, vehicles add to the experience (though sometimes negatively).
Also, they have added more weapons and more accessories to the game which I definitely love. One big, big thumbs up for me was for the new multi-class weapons that are available (not just shotguns and the Garand this time around!). There are machine guns, SMG's, AND shotguns that can be used across all classes, which is awesome because sometimes I want to play as support but just don't really want to carry an LMG. As far as the accessories go- love this too because all weapons have multiple sights that can be unlocked (everything from a red dot to a 4x scope, even night vision!), foregrips, heavy barrels, suppressors, laser sights, tactical lights, and extended magazines (on some weapons). LMG's come with a useable bipod from the get-go which is great for laying down suppressive fire, and you can set it up on any flat surface that happens to be in front of you, whether you're standing, kneeling or prone- another nice touch.
Soooo...of course, I have some gripes!
One big issue I keep running into is with the sound. I'll be in the middle of a battle and 90% of the sound effects and ambient sound will just cut out completely. Why this happens, I really don't know, sometimes the sound will come back eventually, sometimes it comes back and then cuts out again.
-The balancing of forces (and I don't mean by the number of players). There are some maps on the game where the amount of vehicles available to the US forces can make that team just overwhelming especially with a few good players. A good example of this is on Kharg Island- The US forces have a jet, an attack helicopter, boats, THREE LAV's (personnel carriers with a 30mm gun and machine gunner), and an AMTRAC (which has a grenade launcher and machine gun). The russians have a tank and a jet. So basically, the jets end up dogfighting, the helicopter spawn rapes the Russian base and blows up the tank as soon as it spawns, and the personnel carriers take out anyone else. It can get REALLY frustrating. That's not the only map that is like that either.
-Helicopters and jets, once they earn their IR flares, are almost impossible to shoot down unless multiple people are shooting at them, which rarely happens. The reload time for the flares is about the same length as it takes to reload the Stinger/Igla. IMO that's stupid and kind of unfair. Jets can easily run out of range of the launchers anyway.
-Speaking of jets...if you haven't been flying jets since the game came out...you might as well forget it. At their base level the jets only come with a machine gun...I've been in the jet a couple times, and you can't hit a damn thing with it. Anyone who's been on the jet awhile has unlocked missiles, so generally you're pretty well screwed.
-And finally...some of the weapon switching stuff pisses me off. For whatever reason, the game gives you the MP443 Tactical which can be used by both US and Russian forces, on all classes, yet the game refuses to let you keep it equipped as the US forces. If you equip the MP443 tactical as the US forces, the next time you're on the US side it will have the damn M9 tactical equipped. I do not understand the issue with this but it really annoys me. Also, if you're using a new weapon with no unlocks, it will automatically equip the first thing you unlock for each slot. So, when I was playing medic and it inexpicably unlocks the 4X scope as the first thing (WHY? Why in the hell would I want that first?), it will slap it on your gun the first time you die after you unlock it and you will spawn with that stupid scope on your M16 or AK.
Overall, I do love this game and none of my gripes are game breaking. It's good solid fun but be warned, it has a steep learning curve like all FPS do! Once you get the hang of it you will have a blast too.
I finished PS3 Battlefield 3 single player and the story looks and feels like Call of duty Modern warfare (version 10). Very cinematic and even better story presentation than COD 4/5/6. The major plot points where i thoroughly enjoyed in the game was 1.When a Russian Su Jet hunts the squad on the ground and i use a stinger to take it down 2. The last part where you jump off the helicopter with target into a pool. 3. Doing a HALO jump 4. Taking a ride inside the Fighter jet as co-pilot. The graphics of this game will make it feel sometimes like you are actually in the game as real life/ real movie. It felt like i was playing a Modern Warfare game with so good graphics. Activision will not reach this detail in graphics and story presentation for a long time. The action scenes i remember from MW2 and Black Ops feel like crap when looking at the graphics BF3 presents. Most times the graphics are even better than Crysis 2. It does feel "real" like their ad says. I felt unamused and bored multiple times and angry sometimes when i used to play MW2 and Blackops because their stories were so confusing with so little explanation that i could not understand them during the first lazy play. BF3 story presentation is very simple and straightforward, that i understood what was happening in a single play itself.
The story is a lot more serious that any COD games and it feels like watching a serious thriller movie (great graphics makes it feel immersive like seeing real actors in a movie) . Many of the characters and their friends die in battle and a short moment is given as the players character feels sad for them, just like in a real movie. Some of the deaths are gruesome and this is therefore strictly a mature game. Both sides of the war are presented in the player dialogues. Terrorists are fighting for their country and cause which they feel is right and if they win they will rewrite history. The Russians for the first time are not the bad guys. You actually play as Russian good guys or anti heroes a few times.
The AI of friendlies for the first time a War game actually takes out majority of the enemies if you dont feel like hard working and they will not blind fire and wait for you to shoot the enemies down like in MW2, COD games. AI really feels good. The enemy AI will only fire at you when they notice you firing at them, but if they notice you they will take you down if possible. In MW2 the enemy AI seemed to always find you no matter where you hide without firing a single shot. BF3 enemy AI is realistic here. As little as 2 bullets can kill you on normal difficulty if you are not taking cover and enemies will not give you time to find cover by being lazy, again better AI than MW2.
This game should be appreciated more and deserves more than what activision has put out till now.
Easily a 5/5. Most impressive arcade war game out till now.
1. The character animation feels real as it can get in a video game. The player and bot characters walk, move, talk and act mannerisms like real people do and the models feel super well designed, better than Crysis 2 i heard EA used some soccer game character models for BF3).
2. Ability to fire your primary gun in different modes in single and multiplayers is a great addition. I dont like spray fire and now i can make any assault rifle act like a short range sniper with single burst fire. You can OFF/ON burst mode and also OFF/ON any tactical lights or laser pointer for your gun using left pad.
3. Tactical light and laser pointer blinding your face is a unique addition that nobody else thought of till now. And BF3 does it so perfectly.
Somethings i felt missing but not big of a deal:
1. Bullet drop seems missing like they had in Bad company 2. It was a very fun aspect that you had to calculate when sniping and in Tank cannon fire, how much higher to aim to hit a far away target, that seemed missing in BF3 single player. Would have to try Multiplayer to know if its still there.
2. The Coop Helicopter mission i played, i found it extremely difficult to control the heli, it was easier in Bad company 2. I hope i can learn this easily.
3. The lighting is a little bit pain in the ass but understandably realistic. If you have street/car/ambient bright lights it will cause a distraction/whiteout on your view to block clear view of enemies, but it seems a little far fetched if this happens on a bright sunny day. If you eyes/goggles has some water droplets, they actually refract more light into your view.
4. The Helocopter controls seemed a bit awkward, the auto hovering like they had in Badcompany 2 seemed to be absent

Nulla da ridire riguardo la lettura del CD. Non mi si è mai crashato ed è sempre stato molto fluido. Consiglio Per chi ha una buona comprensione di inglese.
