Head and shoulders above Modern Warfare.,
This review is from: Battlefield 3 - Limited Edition (PS3) (Video Game)
Having recently purchased both Battlefield and Modern Warfare 3, I have to say Battlefield 3 is far superior. I am primarily reviewing the multiplayer experience as that's where the real experience lies. MW3 has 16 multiplayer maps compared to Battlefield's 9, but the problem with MW3 is the constant spawn/die repetition which makes for a game which is basically running around in circles being killed every ten seconds. There may be 16 maps but they all amount to the same headache inducing experience. Battlefield got it right, every battle is different and you don't have to get the most kills to make a real contribution to a match. The sprawling maps are truly awesome, vehicles are easy to use (though I still struggle flying jets) and the gameplay superb. I am running the game through my home cinema and the sound is the most immersive I have ever experienced. Playing this game I have genuinely had punch the air moments. If you only buy one of these games make it Battlefield, you will not be dissapointed.
