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.

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.

Overall, if you’ve been hiding under a rock and have never experienced this series, Battlefield 3 is definitely worth checking out! DICE did a great job and their expertise was definitely noted and appreciated your respect is deserved. Even with the few minor glitches in single player, Battlefield 3 leaves you with an unforgettable experience and its multiplayer is so amazing, you won’t pick up anther game for a while!

Battlefield 3 is a must buy if you’re looking for a more realistic first person shooter experience. The battles are long and take place over vast lands, and require careful planning and teamwork not found in any other game. Unfortunately, the single player effort leaves a lot to be desired, and is not worth the purchase if that’s your main motivator. As a complete package, however, Battlefield 3 manages to not only live up to the hype, but be well worth the purchase.

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!

La saga Battlefield aura dix ans l'année prochaine ! Initialement dévolue aux affrontements multijoueurs, elle s'est petit à petit dotée de campagnes solo, notamment dans les épisodes estampillés Bad Company. Avec Battlefield 3, un nouveau cap est franchi puisque le titre marche ouvertement sur les traces des Call of Duty : Modern Warfare. Toujours aussi riche, le multi se voit donc désormais accompagné d'une campagne solo plus hollywoodienne que jamais, grâce à un moteur 3D réellement explosif.
Splitkick (Nov 07, 2011)
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?
IGN (Oct 25, 2011)
When you shut down Battlefield 3 and let the Frostbite 2-powered dust settle, it certainly has some problems. 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.
COGConnected / Canadian Online Gamers Network (Oct 31, 2011)
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.

DICE, bleib bei deinen Leisten! Die liegen bekanntermaßen beim Mehrspielermodus. Und der könnte grundsätzlich fantastisch sein, wenn mir nicht einige unerklärliche Designentscheidungen wie der nicht vorhandene Spawn-Schutz oder das zum Campen einladende Rumliegen den Spaß immer wieder trüben würden. Davon abgesehen liefert DICE wieder mal sehr unterhaltsame Mehrspielerfreuden mit motivierendem Aufleveln, einem auch auf Konsolen prima funktionierenden Serverbrowser und guter (360, PS3) bis ausgezeichneter (PC) Präsentation. Letztere Fassung hat die Nase klar vorn, nicht nur bei der Technik: Die weitaus höhere Spielerzahl und die größeren Karten vermitteln das berühmte, mitreißende Battlefield-Gefühl besser als die eingeschränkten Konsolenversionen. Das erhoffte Ausnahmespiel ist Battlefield 3 nicht geworden - aber in jedem Fall ein sehr unterhaltsamer Teamshooter, zu dem ich immer wieder gerne greife.

If you're looking for an excellent competitive multiplayer game to play with buddies, Battlefield 3 delivers. Solo players should probably hold off for Modern Warfare 3, though.
GameAspect.com (Nov 29, 2011)
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.
GamingLives (Nov 14, 2011)
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.
MMGN (Oct 31, 2011)
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.
Eurogamer.net (UK) (Oct 25, 2011)
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.
Gamereactor (Sweden) (Oct 28, 2011)
Förhoppningsvis kommer det inte dröja ytterligare sex år innan Battlefield 4 släpps. Men oavsett om det gör det är jag övertygad om att det fortfarande kommer att bedrivas krig på Dice Battlefield 3-servrar. För Dice multiplayer är av världsklass och så länge du köper Battlefield 3 för just onlinekrigandet kommer du bli en mycket lycklig gamer, även om du spelar på konsol.
Jeuxvideo.com (Oct 26, 2011)
Nous attendions beaucoup de ce Battlefield 3 et le résultat ne manque pas de panache, même s'il se révèle bien en-deçà de ce que beaucoup d'entre nous espérions ! Cela tient notamment à une campagne très décevante qui se retrouve partiellement contrebalancée par un solide multijoueur. Très proche de ce que proposait Bad Company 2, le multi de BF3 se montre en effet légèrement supérieur car plus équilibré, plus complet et plus varié que son aîné. Ajoutons à cela une demi-douzaine de missions coop bien sympathiques et l'on obtient un soft de qualité, mais très loin de la révolution attendue. On ressort donc un tantinet déçus de l'expérience même si cela ne nous empêchera pas de filer online pour enchaîner les nuits blanches sur les champs de bataille du nouveau bébé de DICE.
OMGN: Online Multiplayer Games Network (Dec 23, 2011)
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. There are moments in multiplayer where brilliance shines through, and the fun factor is higher than ever, but the occasional annoyances that pepper every aspect of the game hold it back from attaining true greatness. Battlefield 3 aspires to be king of the FPSs and ends up being something lesser.
Calm Down Tom (Oct 28, 2011)
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.
VentureBeat / Gamesbeat (Oct 27, 2011)
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.
