I only ever played COD4 on hardcore...in fact it was so good I actually joined a clan, of which I am still a proud member (and admin - despite my lack of involvement since I got pissed off with Black Ops)

Tomorrow at 10am this game will be available for me to pick up. By 10:30 I will be gleefully mowing down all who oppose me and I can't freakin wait.

Vaz: get real man. BF3 is most certainly Battlefield. CoD in any form doesn't compare to the game when it comes to mp. Yes they have added in things to spice it up and attract a larger audience but in all honesty I don't want BF2 or BF:1942 with prettier graphics. I want the realism and the teamwork alongside the 'wow' moments and fast pace.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

having played Battlefield 2 since its release and battlefield 3 beta, I can guaranteee that what's been shown so far is not battlefield.

There's no realism in Battlefield 3 (being "more" realistic than competitors does not make it realistic), and the team work is not present - it rewards more for getting kills and hiding in a corner than it does actually trying to win.

Admittedly, with only having Rush to play at the moment, and on an easily defensive map like op metro, its a one sided opinion, but what I've seen so far, it caters to kill whoring.

As I am installing the game at this very moment I will let you know if that is the case in total.

What's it play like Wraithy? Have they sorted out the key/button mapping? That really did my crust in with the BETA. Not being able to change zoom from the right mouse button to the wheel and not being able to assign jump to the right mouse button.

I did like the ability to go prone (finally). My son is really looking forward to getting it.

Don't worry. We all make mistakes from time to time.

This too isnt that much a BF game anymore. What made original 1942 great achievement and BF2 good, this mostly feels like just yet another fps for people with add. And add to that of course shiny new graphics. And i hate this new 3d spotting that has come into this series. Would only play hardcore, even original BF2 was quite lame without it.

That is not to say i wouldnt buy BF3 in future for some 1 hour sessions but as of now this is bottom on my list of need to have titles.

It plays awesomely in all honesty. The campaign is a overdone story involving suitcase nukes and Russian but not many people are going to pick up this title for single play. As far as multiplayer goes, this game is all that. It takes teamwork to win against even a mediocre team and the K/D bunnies I think will end up leaving the game shortly after MW3 comes out. The maps are MASSIVE, especially on the Conquest: Large settings and playing on a server with 64 people running around is insane. This title is all they claimed it would be in my opinion.

I was thinking about getting BF3, but with all the gossip about whether its gonna be bad or good, ive decided to wait til it gets in-depth consumer reviews and gets reviewed on x-play and stuff like that.
