5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding FPS, 20 Dec 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Battlefield 3 (PS3) (Video Game)
Back in my previous life, before I had children - actually scrub that - back when I had a life, and money for that matter (now I'm sounding bitter I know) I had a top spec PC. And I played Battlefield 2. A lot.

Many a night I played for hours, squading up with some great people online and generally having a blast. The sheer size, scope and playability of BF2 made it, for me, the most enjoyable game I've played in all my years of gaming (and I remember the days when Horace used to go skiing).

Alas, those days are now gone, my games room is now a nursery (there I go again) and my state of the art pc has been replaced with a PS3.

So it is, after 5 long years Battlefield 3 is finally here and I must say in some ways it's a lot better than I thought it would be on a console.

Yes, there's no 64 player mayhem, no commander and no commo rose... and no mouse and keyboard for lightening fast reactions. BUT... it still feels and plays like a Battlefield game should. Strategy and ingenuity has always been the staple of any Battlefield game... once spawned it's up to you (and your squad) to decide the best way of capturing and holding a flag using dozens of different approaches. This makes the game unique when compared to othe FPS (*must not mention the 'C' word, must not mention the 'C' word*)

The big maps sometimes feel a little sparse and sometimes the games are over too quickly but the new generation graphics do make up for some of these shortfalls when compared to BF2. The environments are lush and the destructibility aspect brings a whole new dimension to gameplay. Squad play/teamwork is almost non existent (perhaps some sort of dedicated mic servers would sort this?) but if you find the right clan/friends this can be overcome.

So on the whole, I'm enjoying my Battlefield experience again and I'd recommend this game to anyone who loves first person shooters with huge amounts of creative gameplay thrown in to mix things up a little.
