Battlefiled 3 Takes The Cake

I have noticed that this is year, is going to be the year of the shooter with Modern Warfare 3, Battlefield 3, Resistance 3 and Gears of War 3 (it must be a coincidence that they are all #3's) to name a few and they are all being released all around the same time. But after watching several game play videos I think I have concluded that Battlefield 3 (BF3) takes the cake.

Although there are not many videos out for BF3 I think my decision was fairly easy to make. The Frostbite 2 engine that BF3 is running on gives the Cry engine a run for their money. I mean how could you not like the look of BF3, it seems photo realistic and it trumps Killzone 3 and Crysis 2 regarding visuals (I never thought this would happen so soon). The character models look pretty awesome as well as the particle effects among other things. BF3 is a really pretty game and that is always a plus in my book.

Yes I know I am probably on of the most shallow people when it comes to video games and their graphics but the other main reason why BF3 is at the top of my shooter list is the multi player. It the only shooter this fall that will have suck a wide variety of vehicles to use in the online. I love games that have an array of usable vehicles. Like Warhawk, the variety give you a choice to do what you like instead of being infantry only. This makes me feel like I am doing my part in the bigger battle. Variety is always good it changes things up and you must adapt to the situation.

I'm pretty sure I am not alone in saying this, I really look forward to seeing more content from BF3 being released in the coming months. I think it's safe to say the hype train has left the station.


  1. I'm hyped for Battlefield 3 mainly because it's Battlefield. And I looove me some Battlefield :D The graphics are incredible and the multiplayer looks really promising as well. I think of all the upcoming shooters BF3 will provide the most variety.

  2. I totally agree, the multi player has me pretty excited. I not going to get any studying done this fall :P

  3. Very interesting... I really like it... Thank you so much...
