PostSubject: Battlefield 3   Wed Dec 07, 2011 5:08 am

There is a section near the beginning of B3 in which generic middle eastern city de jour is destroyed by an earthquake that kills off most of your buddies, and you're left on your own. With my AI teammates no longer there to drag me around by the nose I was free to go at my own pace, explore, choose my angle of attack on the unsuspecting enemy soldiers and generally feel like I was actually playing rather than just spectating, and it dawned on me that I was actually having fun.

Of course it was over all too soon as I was re-united with the surviving member of my squad and we were air-lifted out, and from that point on the game can pretty much be summed up as "Call of Duty but Prettier." However, it made me realize that maybe what I hate about that particular franchise and its many clones isn't the regenerating health and cover-based shooting, it's how they stomp all over the player's freedom in the name of railroading you from one set piece to the next.

I know I would have enjoyed it a lot more if the whole game had been about Blackburn (the main character) trying to escape the ruined city while being hunted down by the insurgents who take over, instead of the generic CoD ripoff it is.

Anyway... Has anyone else bothered with this one?

No.

But it does look very pretty..... I didnt really expect the campaign to be anything good after suffering trough bad company2.

Anyway, the online is really what bf is about, right? So how is that part of the game?

I played three matches online (managed to get the MVP badge in the third) and it was okay, but I prefer BC2.

Speaking of BC2, I actually enjoyed that game's campaign despite the stupid, barely existent plot. It wasn't overly scripted or restrictive (while you're almost always with a squad, they're generally following you) and actually made use of the destruction physics (sometimes a little gratuitously, like the level where the whole town is collapsing around you while you try to make it to the helicopter.)

I liked the destruction as well, I don't remmember it being usefull in the campaign. It was very nice and usefull in multiplayer though, even if it didnt work everywere.

What does MVP stand for?

Most Valuable Player.

I thought the destruction actually came in handy pretty often. Enemies shooting down at you from a window? Blow up the wall! Can't find the door? Make one of your own! Lots of guys in a heavily damaged building? Bring the whole thing down with a rocket!

And so on and so forth.
