How well realised is the co-op and the length of the campaign.

I know the mp will be stellar. :)

Battlefield Bad Company 2 or Battlefield 3?
Any big difference between the two?

No more humour them?

I would like to know if the single player campaign feels unique or are the levels simple rehashes of those used for the multiplayer mode, bad company 2 style.

This one for the pc version; Is it the generational leap we are lead to believe - if you could imagine it as a xbox 720/ps4 game - would u be satisfied with it as a launch title?

looking forward to the review.

Is it a million times beter than the terrible BETA? Has the graphics been massively improved since the BETA? Because they were p**s poor.

In all seriousness is it actually fun to play in multiplayer? Is there any action or is it as fun as watching Chess like the BETA? :wink:

When's the embargo lifted? I'm not buying until I know it's a worthy sequel to BF2, and not just a competitor to MW3.

How better is the destructible environment technology over BBC2? What are its weaknesses? Does the destruction piece have the 'wow' factor?

I actually enjoyed playing the beta...

Would like to know how solid it is in comparison to the beta though, which although it played fine, was as buggy as hell.

Also, with DICE campaigns always being their Achilles heel in comparison to their consistently excellent multiplayer offerings, does this one set itself apart from their previous output? Also, how does it fair when it isn't being somewhat carried by the banter and light heartedness of the BC cast? Having just seen the latest trailer, it is serious and more than a little like MW (the term modern warfare, setting it aside from the game of the same name, does kind of dictate these 'rogue nuke/insurgent/terrorism' kind of situations, and Activision seem to have taken a turn into ludicrous territory, but is it engaging?).

Isthe hype justified?

Finally, for players of Call of Duty, is there enough there to warrant defection? I don't play CoD, and prefer Battlefield's flavour of online play, but it is the burning question isn't it.

and a real contender for the FPS crown, it's a big one.


Its comments like that, that instigate flaming / trolling. The very same thing people get banned for.

why not state something like, one of two major amazing fps games that our out in the next few weeks?

your almost forcing a reaction out of people. Some people will prefer BF3, some people will perfer mw3. End of CVG.

so, rather then focusing on that...

let get back to the thread.

want to know as above, how much of an improvement is the final finishe dversion of the game over the beta. the beta is old code etc, but even the multiplayer itself was un-enjoyable. wasnt fun, wasnt compelling, and then on top of the the list of problems, graphical issues, glitches, colours etc, all majorly sucked (yes i know it was a beta). now, back to my question, does the actualy game destroy the beta, is the gameplay better, are the control less clunky?

is the singple player lengthy?
whats the difficulty like on different difficult modes? too eaasy on normal etc?
is flyng the plane / tanks fun and open? or on rails and linear?

thanks

The texture pack is new to consoles,how big a difference does it make and are there any issues with it? Does this steal the original Modern Warefare's crown as best ever shooter and if so,does it wipe it's backside with it or merely give it a playful spank?

Please tell us the circumstances the game was reviewed. Did you get a copy of the game or did you have to go to some top secret bunker and play it on an EA sanctioned machine? What versions were tested? If you tested on your own PC, what kind of rough spec was it? Any driver updates? Can you make clear distinctions between console and PC versions, not with graphics, but in terms of ease of use, multiplayer features (if you can) and any other obvious disparity between the two? Any persistent crashes? Again, not interested in graphics or PS3/360 graphics comparisons. Rage continues to be a disappointment for me on the PC, the textures are awful, so I want to know about the experience of the game, from installation to playing please.

Many thanks. You teases, you.

using the texture pack on the 360 does it make it look better than the beta?
