5.0 out of 5 stars From sceptic to stunned in a matter of minutes !, 15 Nov. 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Battlefield 3 - Limited Edition (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Having awaited the arrival of Skyrim eagerly (open world, viking stylistics, mythology...yay, surely!) I was gutted to discover a broken, dull insipid and poorly produced game which promptly went off to Ebay land.

So I then looked for my next gaming fix.....Modern Warfare or Battlefield 3?

I rented both to be sure and withing 15 minutes of playing Battlefield 3 my jaw was on the floor. It was stunning....the graphic and audio design is just stunning, with some of the most incredible audio visual experiences I've seen on a console. The value for money too was a smile inducer.....the sheer variety of gameplay offered from one game is incredible; single player campaigns, co-op campaigns, massive multi-player battlefields and online stat support...crazy.

Once you're into it, it really is a game for everyman...you literally play it as you want to, and having all the weapons and vehicles at your disposal in multiplayer means you can always find a strength.

So it's a keeper...but what of Modern Warfare?

Oh dear....visually it really looks a bit stilted and dated now, and you are led by the hand through everything. The multi-player is a massive let down too, playing to the brain dead hordes of American teens who wouldn't understand flanking and cover fire if it sat on their faces. Really lowest common denominator stuff. Plus...it's short. I finished it in less than a day and was bored of the run and gun multi-player within an hour. Plus....no Zombies. Deal breaker for that game.

So there you go...the reasons why I would advise you to part with your cash for Battlefield 3 rather than Skyrim or Modern Warfare 3...it really is a masterpiece of a game!!
