The latest modern battle shooter has arrived with Battlefield 3. In this new shooter, you play in a modern day war in Iran. This new shooter brings in a new challenger to the Call of Duty series.
First, the visuals in this game are absolutely stunning. The graphics in terms of realism rank up there with the Uncharted games and Crysis 2. Battlefield 3 uses a new engine called Frostbite 2, which is an improved version of the previous Battlefield engine. This game also offers destructible environments which includes toppling trees with machine guns and crumbling structures on explosive impact.
There are 3 different game modes offered in Battlefield 3. There is a singleplayer campaign mode, online multiplayer, and online co-op. In addition to foot combat, there are also many vehicles available to use in both singleplayer and online. Some of the vehicles include tanks, helicopters, jets, and boats. When using vehicles online, you gain vehicle XP, which will allow you to use new gadgets and abilities as you rank up with that particular vehicle.
If you like war shooters, you should enjoy Battlefield 3. This game is much more advanced than the last Call of Duty Modern Warfare game in terms of gameplay, weapon selection, and in the technical aspect. There is some DLC already slated to come out in the future, which you should get free if you enter the code for your online pass into your PSN account management.
Without a doubt, this is one of the best efforts from a major game company this generation.
