This review is from: Battlefield 3 - Limited Edition (PS3) (Video Game)
Although the Bad Company series was quite nice it really is about time that we finally got our hands on Battlefield 3. But boy was the wait worth it..

Visually the game is absolutely stunning. The character models, buildings, guns and vehicles all look very impressive and the animations are as fluid as can be. The general atmosphere that's been created is really one to behold and even though the console version of the game is supposed to look weaker it still looks very, very good. The audio and sound effects are also top notch and do a swell job of engrossing you within the game.

The story sees us step in the shoes of Sergeant Blackburn. It's set in 2014 near the Iran-Iraq border and the entire story revolves around us finding a nuclear weapon that has been taken by terrorists and which is likely to be launched at a western country.
There are a few times where the campaign may not seem as strong as it could be though this is usually overwhelmed by the plethora of "did that just happen?!" moments which make is very enjoyable even if single player wasn't that hyped in the run up to the release of the game. The AI is also pretty good and vehicles are mixed well within the campaign to allow you to experience quite a lot of things.

The multiplayer is also fantastic. The maps are generally designed very well and the abundant availability of guns and vehicles in the game is also very impressive, allowing you to play exactly how you want. You also get points for pretty much everything you do so team work is often encouraged which is always nice. The classes are also balanced fairly well and the amount of possible customisation is as brilliant as ever.

They have also added co-op modes which allow you to do specific missions with someone else online. I didn't find this as much fun as the campaign or the multiplayer though this still manages to hold it's own and is fun regardless.

This being the limited edition also gives us free access to the Back to Karkand expansion pack that will be eventually released, and it will bring back some battlefield maps(but re-defined in the Frostbite 2 engine) as well as weapons, vehicles, etc.

All in all, this is a worthy successor to Battlefield 2 and will have you playing for hours and hours and hours.
