For PC gamers at least, the decision by Dice to lead on our beloved platform has resulted in a game that delivers a truly next-generation feel. BF3 is an absolutely massive experience, but it's the explosive multiplayer mode that makes this the must-have FPS of the year. There's simply no other shooter that lets you wage war on a scale this huge, but even better is the infinite number of satisfying ways to lay the hurt down on your opponents. See you on the Battlefield.

It's very easy to see why Battlefield 3 has sold more units at launch than all of its predecessors put together. Online, this is the sort of game that modern online gamers deserve. Though it's a fairly safe bet to imagine Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 absolutely reaming Battlefield 3 in terms of sales, there are those of us who secretly hope that MW3 tanks like an M1 Abrams at the end of November, while the savvy amongst us are still enjoying night after night online with Battlefield 3 instead.

Avec un solo perfectible, mais jouissif pour les yeux et les oreilles, Battlefield 3 rajoute une corde à son arc. Mais son arme principale reste - et de loin - son mode multi, toujours aussi complet et bluffant. Associé à cette réalisation fantastique, on en oublie les tracas de BattleLog et Origin. Un must have.

With Battlefield 3, DICE have at long last raised the bar of PC gaming above the long-held bottleneck of console-parity, to bring us a game that’s finally worth upgrading for and I dare say it carries with it a potential for a renaissance of the PC first person shooter.

It's pretty easy when it comes down to it. If you're looking for an offline experience, look elsewhere. Battlefield 3 has a decent singleplayer - it's certainly better than some other games I've played recently - but it's not mind-blowing. If it's the best multiplayer game in the world that you're after, get your affairs in order. You're re-enlisting soldier.

WindowsImpulse Gamer
In closing I would say that Battlefield 3 ups the gaming bar and stands on its own two feet. Its single player experience is stellar, but it fly’s to new heights with its multiplayer experiences. Battlefield 3’s visuals will just about melt your brain. While the game is not perfection..(What is really?) it comes very close to gaming bliss.

WindowsGame Informer Magazine
Battlefield fans hoping for the most polished entry in the series won’t be disappointed by this massive sequel. Multiplayer maintains the high level of quality DICE is known for, and the campaign is the best in franchise history. Outside of the annoying Battlelog and a tacked-on, uninspired co-op mode consisting of six short standalone missions, the only downside to Battlefield 3 is the lack of substantial changes to the multiplayer formula. However, that shouldn’t stop longtime fans and newcomers from enjoying one of the best FPS experiences in gaming.

Das perfekte Spiel gibt es nicht, Battlefield 3 kommt da aber schon sehr nahe ran. Bei dem komplexen Gefüge aus Waffen, Klassen, Perks, Fahrzeugen und so weiter ist vielleicht sogar Waffe A in Situation B eine Spur zu stark oder Fahrzeug X gegen Fußsoldat Y an Sanddüne Z unfair im Vorteil, aber wen juckt das schon? Ein Spiel, das mich selbst dann famos unterhält, wenn meine Mannschaft verliert, macht schon mal viel richtig!

Xbox 360Xbox360Achievements
To put it bluntly, Battlefield 3 has one of the best online multiplayer components out there, blending some of the most interesting maps and intense combat moments with one another to create the best full-scale war simulator out there, and it's one that promotes tactical gameplay. Stunning stuff… And the campaign and co-op ain’t bad either.

(Multiplayer review)
Die größten Fans sind immer auch die größten Kritiker. Als ich das von den selbst reparierenden Fahrzeugen gehört habe, wollte ich Dice eine Mail schreiben: »Habt Ihr sie noch alle?! Und Server-Suchmaschine im Webbrowser, geht’s noch?!« Doch ich muss mir eingestehen: Das funktioniert alles, und sogar besser als in den Vorgängern. Dass die Klassen gut durchdacht sind sehe ich allein daran, dass ich die alle gleich oft spiele – dabei war ich doch sonst so ein Dauersani. Die Begeisterung für die Jets konnte ich in Teil 2 nie teilen, jetzt zählen sie zu meinen Lieblings-Fahrzeugen. Und das Ganze dann noch in einem so beeindruckenden technischen Grundgerüst! Das Spielejahr 2011 ist für mich gelaufen, ich habe meinen Favoriten.

Battlefield 3 then, from a campaign perspective, delivers the goods and then some. It's not perfect, but it's bloody close... infinitely more impressive than Bad Company 2 and irrefutable proof that DICE have now firmly stepped into the hallowed ranks of the absolute top-tier developers. COD or not, this deserves a place in your collection - not to mention a place in your heart.

WindowsGameTrailers
Battlefield 3 is a lot like prior games in the series. It features a stellar multiplayer suite with practically limitless replay value and a mostly forgettable campaign. The coop missions are a nice addition, and to be fair, the single-player is the best in series history, but it still falls short of its contemporaries.
92
WindowsCheat Code Central
Battlefield 3 is kind of an enigma in the gaming industry right now. It's a big-budget shooter that was designed specifically for the PC. And while the console versions are competent, Battlefield 3 can really only be experienced on a functional PC.
92
WindowsYouGamers
Battlefield 3 is the new baseline in first person shooter games and while the single player is short and painfully linear, you can only admire the atmosphere and the visuals. Multiplayer maps are too small for 64 players and the game needs a patch or two to fix some small issues but otherwise the online play is pretty much spot on - BF3 will be played for years to come.
91
Windows1UP
Battlefield 3 is a game that's informed, not bound, by both its predecessors and its competition. It takes what made the series great in earlier games and marries it to the innovations from more recent BF titles. The single-player and co-op campaigns both have their issues, but the multiplayer component is worth the price of entry alone.
91
WindowsCanadian Online Gamers Network
In the end, Battlefield 3 is the experience that PC First Person Shooter gamers are looking for. Sure, as a whole, the game is not perfect, but the feature-rich multiplayer is the king of the genre, and the class-based warfare will keep you coming back. The main campaign does lack innovation, but it is definitely one of the best of the franchise. This game was made for the PC platform and it is apparent with the level of detail in its presentation. If you PC gamer and you just happen to be a die-hard multiplayer first person shooter fan, Battlefield 3 is definitely the game for you.

It's the next level of multiplayer team warfare with an incredible engine powering it. Get a good PC and enjoy some of the best multiplayer action out there. The bugs can sometimes kick you out of the game. A ton of unlocks will have you playing a long time to get them all. The single player portion is pretty linear and not that interesting.

WindowsGamingTrend
There is no doubt that Battlefield comes with some warts courtesy of a few mission features and the forced inclusion of Origin, but once these are ironed out we should have a title worthy of carrying the series name.

Sebbene qualche piccola macchia impedisca a questo titolo di essere un capolavoro, direi che il lavoro svolto da DICE è encomiabile: lo sviluppatore è riuscito a offrire un multiplayer estremamente godibile, variegato e competitivo e una campagna single player visivamente spettacolare e dal realismo quasi maniacale: nell’attesa del confronto definitivo con Modern Warfare 3 invito ogni amante di FPS a giocare questo Battlefield 3 perchè non ne resterà certamente deluso!

In short, Battlefield 3’s multiplayer is a triumph, and while the single player campaign isn’t the most original, or entertaining shooter, it’s the online modes that will keep us playing for months to come.

Battlefield 3 is a representation of all that PC gaming stands for. An extremely beautiful looking game that takes advantage of the hardware in every way possible, resulting in an experience that’s so huge and fulfilling that it will keep you satisfied for years to come, especially with all the DLC map packs in the pipelines.

It's great to see games being designed for the PC in this day and age, and the pace, atmosphere, and level design is neigh-perfect. When a multiplayer game's only downfalls are slight inaccessibility and a mediocre single player campaign, there's something terrific happening.

Battlefield 3 is a uniquely mesmerizing multiplayer game with a seemingly endless number of ways to feel like a success. It's not revolutionary, but it's the best Battlefield game, and that's saying a lot.

WindowsAtomic Gamer
Despite some problems, Battlefield 3 delivers right where it counts: online play. The single player mode looks great but is rather limited, and the competitive multiplayer might be a bit buggy and doesn't pull in all of the best features of every past Battlefield game, but it still lives up to the hype - and for those that were disappointed in the beta, it might even exceed the hype - and gives us a wonderful online experience that is unlike any other in the FPS world.

If you want a strong single-player experience, there are much better titles out there for you and you should probably stay clear of Battlefield 3. If you just want multiplayer than this might be your game of the year.

WindowsBrutal Gamer
Battlefield 3 is a triumph of multiplayer gaming. Designed for the people that get sick of the insta-death of titles like Call of Duty you can play round after round, ranking up, and never fire a bullet by being a valued team member in engineering or medical. The campaign is 5 hours of mediocre and easily is the worst part of the package. That said it at least offers entertainment and still looks gorgeous thanks to the advances in the Frostbyte 2 engine. The PC version, with it’s enhanced graphics and 64 player online maps, is the definitive version of the game. The massive online following and hours of play that aspect will yield are priceless and I can’t recommend you play it enough.

Avec Battlefield 3, un nouveau cap est franchi puisque le titre marche ouvertement sur les traces des Call of Duty : Modern Warfare.

I leave the battlefield tonight satisfied. The game has been out for more than a week, and long gone are the nearly unforgivable server issues that plagued the first few days. I am more than happy to see the multiplayer sticking to the successful formula that the Battlefield franchise has become known for, with focus on teamwork, playing to your class, and mixed ways to progress through the battlefield, whether by vehicle or by foot. Along with the familiar comes change, and change is handed out by the tank load. From the way you navigate into a match through the new server browser to the extensive vehicle and kit customization. Single player is definitely the weakest part of this game, but obviously DICE knows where the money is, and to compete with the upcoming Modern Warfare 3, the obvious route was taken and the majority of efforts were put into multiplayer… but heck, who plays the campaign on a Battlefield game anyhow?

WindowsSoftpedia
Battlefield 3 is a game of contrasts, starting with mediocre, in the form of the single-player story, building up to decent, with the pretty short co-op campaign, and finishing up with excellent, in the form of the competitive multiplayer. It’s one interesting ride, to say the least, but if you stick with it, Battlefield 3 will deliver one of the best and most visually advanced shooter experiences of the year.

But DICE’s adoration of and expertise with the online experience permeates every aspect of its multiplayer. Regardless of the narrative missteps or the occasional glitches, Battlefield 3 offers an unforgettable, world-class multiplayer suite so fun that it more than makes up for the package’s shortcomings.

Battlefield 3 is without a doubt the best open multiplayer game of the moment. The huge maps, the vehicles, the vast customization and almost perfect balance in every map are proof that DICE know how to create an experience that has no equal. If only they hadn't focused so much on trying to blow Modern Warfare away and implemented an underwhelming singleplayer campaign and co-op, then Battlefield 3 would have easily scored 95%.

Overall, this is a great game, and it has largely delivered on all of the pre-release hype. We do however warn you that if you are looking to buy the PC version, don't be surprised if you have some issues. It certainly knocked some of the gloss off the game for us.

If you ask me, there’s no clear winner between Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3. Sure, from a sales standpoint, the figures lean towards CoD, but BF3 has proven to be a best-seller too, and sales will only reflect mass tendencies, not an absolute quantification of the game’s value. It’s all a matter of taste, after all. They each provide a certain type of entertainment – when talking about Battlefield 3, it involves a bigger game, more open in its possibilities and more spectacular. But on a longer timeline, less frantic and with fewer Bruce Willis scenes than the mass appeal beast it set itself to dethrone.

Dice kann also doch sehr gute Solo-Kampagnen! Zumindest, wenn sich die Entwickler an die großen Vorbilder halten. Battlefield 3 ist durchgängig sehr gute Unterhaltung auf einem fast immer großartigen Grafikniveau. Ich bin mehr als überrascht, denn insgeheim hatte ich etwas im Bereich des jüngsten Medal of Honor befürchtet. Wenn ich gemein wäre, könnte ich den Schweden die dreiste Kopiererei zum Vorwurf machen. Aber hey, wenn Kopieren in der Spieleentwicklung verboten wäre, dann gäb’s kein World of Warcraft, haha! Trotzdem: Für Battlefield 4 wünsche ich mir mehr Eigenständigkeit, mehr Ideen und unbedingt irgendwas ohne Terrorismus.

I have to say that Battlefield 3 is definitely a winner when it comes to the world of online multiplayer games. The amount of unlocks and vehicles are second to none, as you just can’t find this variety anywhere else. Sure, the game is not perfect as the single player experience is somewhat generic and suffers from the “been there, done that” feeling, but come on, you know that most people aren’t buying this game for the single player play. In the end I think that fans of FPS games as a whole will enjoy this game, and those who are fans of the Battlefield series will find a lot to like here too.

Battlefield 3 is exactly what Battlefield fans most likely wanted: a chaotic, gorgeous multiplayer game with small, but important tweaks to what already worked in past games. That it includes a short, somewhat mediocre solo campaign and some hit-or-miss co-op action does not detract from the fact that, online, this is the best Battlefield game yet.

Overall Battlefield 3 is one of the more impressive multi player experiences. Even the console versions of the game allow for 12 on 12 play which leads to plenty of action on large maps. With the added bonus of a single player campaign with a good story line Battlefield 3 is one of the best games of 2011.
80
WindowsEdge
EA wants Battlefield 3 to be all things to all people, and it’s right in thinking that the addition of a singleplayer duck shoot doesn’t detract from its other substantial offerings. But in this act of imitation, and limitation, it disregards the choice and tactical empowerment which make the series near-peerless and preciously idiosyncratic in multiplayer.

Battlefield 3 doesn't have the immediate run-and-gun appeal served so well by Modern Warfare 3. It never intended that. Instead, like the previous games, Battlefield 3 is about finding your place on the map, your place on your team, with your role, with your gun. Wars have always been about geography. Better than any other shooter, Battlefield 3 gets that.

It's hard to tell how it'll pan out over the years, but right now, this is a great game burdened with new, confused players, technical problems, and a lack of information as to how to be effective on the field.

When all is said and done, Battlefield 3 is a game that impresses and disappoints at the same time. It's a beautiful game for sure, but it's difficult to praise it when beauty takes precedence over game, at least in the campaign. The multiplayer looks and plays beautifully and that's what Battlefield is all about in the first place.

Despite the bullet holes in its feet, Battlefield is one of the best games you'll play this year. If you're choosing to play CoD instead without ever giving it a second look then you're going to be missing out on one of the most epic and large scale gaming events of this entire console generation. The single player is a great experience and the multiplayer is an especially limitless one.

Battlefield 3 may be the toughest game I've yet to review; it's majorly flawed, but at the same time, it does so much right that it's almost impossible not to at least enjoy your time with it. After all the hype and the name calling, Battlefield 3 is here. Was it worth the wait? The easy answer is an emphatic yes; it may not be the end-all-be-all first person shooter you're looking for, but it is a remarkable one that you're going to want to play - especially if you're into multiplayer.

WindowsThunderbolt Games
On its own terms, Battlefield 3 is an odd beast. On the one hand, it features some of the most engaging multi-player available this year, warts and all. On the other hand, it sports one of the most insipid and boring single-player modes around - oh yeah, there’s co-op too, but that isn’t really worth playing either. What to do? If you’re part of the majority of fans who just want to skip straight into the online modes, there’s no question: Battlefield 3 is stellar. The same can’t be said for the rest of the package, so people uninterested in internet warfare would be best advised to stay away. Despite the extra flak, though, Battlefield 3 remains a thoroughly compelling game with one of the most awe-inspiring presentations in gaming history.

8 ou 9, notre note ne se montre pas définitive. Le 8 convient à notre état d'esprit du moment, Battlefield 3 est un très bon titre, mais le lancement est quelque peu chaotique. L'accès au multijoueurs est perturbé et ce n'est franchement pas la campagne solo qui arrivera à faire patienter les joueurs. Mais EA et Dice règleront certainement les problèmes de bugs et d'accessibilité que la version PC nous a offert et les joueurs pourront alors détenir un jeu percutant. Et méritant un 9, de ce fait.

Inutile d'y aller par quatre chemins, la campagne solo de Battlefield 3, largement calquée sur Modern Warfare, se montre décevante en raison d'un gameplay sans saveur alourdi par les nombreux errements de l'intelligence artificielle : seule, elle aurait mérité à peine plus de la moyenne malgré sa technique parfois impressionnante. Heureusement il est un domaine dans lequel la série continue de briller : son multi grâce auquel les fans retrouveront tout le savoir-faire de DICE en la matière. Certes les joutes en ligne n'ont rien de très original, mais elles sont parfaitement exécutées et se révèlent toujours aussi jouissives. Espérons maintenant que les développeurs corrigeront le tir pour les joueurs solitaires en vue d'un éventuel quatrième opus !

Battlefield 3 has only sparingly lived up to the expectations forced onto it by its publisher. The game thrives in a competitive landscape, offering intense and engaging conflict alongside detailed stat-tracking and a fantastic reward system. However, the game is dragged down by a single-player campaign that doesn't trust you enough to explore, instead placing an emphasis on detail and set-pieces. Battlefield 3 has its moments, hampered by an all-round failure to blow us away with the innovative gameplay and environments we were all promised.
80
WindowsMMGN
It's hard to review a game like Battlefield 3; if it had been offered with the multiplayer only component I would have easily given it a 10 out of 10. It provides a deep and engrossing experience that is addictive, fun and ahead of the pack in every way possible. However we didn't just get the multiplayer, we got served up a single-player campaign that is boring and contrived, and a co-op campaign that offers a similar experience. It lacks purpose and identity, and offers nothing more than a great looking, scripted experience. If you're looking for a multiplayer game that provides online warfare with unparalleled depth and scope, Battlefield 3 will meet all of your expectations, and then some. However if you want an engaging single-player experience, this is simply not your game of the year.

Xbox 360Eurogamer.net (UK)
Those who buy the game for multiplayer likely won't care that these elements aren't up to par, but what stings most is the thought of what DICE could have done to evolve and expand its multiplayer design skills if the mantra of "BEAT COD" hadn't been drummed so relentlessly into the development process. Battlefield didn't need to be more like Call of Duty to succeed, it just had to double down on what it was already good at. Hopefully that's a lesson that will be learned by the time Battlefield 4 roars into view.

Tu possèdes certes une plastique de rêve, capable de renvoyer Miss Univers dans sa loge, mais ta campagne très décevante fait pâle figure face à ton solide multijoueur. Et même si celui-ci est plus équilibré, plus complet, plus profond et mieux maîtrisé que celui de Bad Company 2, il n'en propose pas moins qu'une toute petite poignée de maps vraiment adaptées aux combats de masse que nous espérions tant retrouver !

Battlefield 3 is a game that aspires to dream big and be the best FPS on the market but isn't willing to get over a few of its hangups. I can't speak for the PC audience, but as far as the console version goes, it's occasionally fun, if a rather uneven experience.

Battlefield 3 is a game that aspires to dream big and be the best FPS on the market but isn't willing to get over a few of its hangups. I can't speak for the PC audience, but as far as the console version goes, it's occasionally fun, if a rather uneven experience.

While the PC version is obviously the one to go for, this is the best console BF ever made. The core experience strikes a balance between the ambitious but unpolished Battlefield 2 and the slick but safe Bad Company games. The on foot combat is better than ever before while the vehicles offer something that most other modern shooters don’t do. Even the other games that have vehicles can’t seem to match DICE’s expertise in this area. They have been doing large scale multiplayer games like this for years, and they are really fucking good at it. So what about all this singleplayer nonsense then? Best to put it to one side and concentrate on the real game. Consider it a DVD extra, something worth trying out on a dull Sunday and afterwards discarding. Multiplayer Battlefield 3 meanwhile is something that you will be playing for a long, long time.

All things considered, the many issues Battlefield 3 on the Xbox 360 is suffering from are inexcusable, and when the game is working, what’s there is not particularly exceptional. I’m somewhat confident that over the next few months the servers will be stabilized, gameplay balances will be made, DLC will be released, and bugs will be fixed, but I’m not a fortune teller, and there’s a reason this review isn’t called “Battlefield 3: 28 days later.” For potential customers looking for the best version of Battlefield 3, you may want to seek out the PC version instead.
