Battlefield 3 PC review, disappointing campaign mode

Earlier today we told you about the possibility of a new Medal of Honor game in a flyer that users have received in their early copies of Battlefield 3. Now we have a Battlefield 3 PC review for you, which has a disappointing campaign mode but is more than made up by the online part of the game.

The team over at IGN has been playing the PC version of Battlefield 3, and really liked the multiplayer part of the game. While the campaign single player part feels like a completely different game. The storyline of the single player game isn’t great, but DICE have really raised the stakes with the online mode of the game.

Maps within the multiplayer mode provide gamers an immediate sense of scale, and are all about the freedom of choice. These maps are huge in size and in the first few times of playing you may not even see half of them, and it encourages exploration. The rewards and progression of the game will have gamers coming back for a very long time.

The new Team Deathmatch modes encourage players to achieve high kills with low deaths. Battlefield 3 is still all about teamwork, and you can still get to the top of leaderboards no matter how many times you are killed. Visually the game is outstanding with the Frostbite engine really doing its job well, but isn’t perfect though. With settings at maximum the game will blow you away visually, but you can be met with the odd set of legs pocking through walls among other slight glitches.

While the storyline of the single player campaign takes a more serious line than other titles in the franchise. There are some good moments in the campaign mode that include the graphics, but it fails with the fact there is not much to blow up or vehicles to take control of. This is why it feels like two completely different games compared to the online mode.

There will be many who are buying the game for the multiplayer mode and won’t be disappointed by it, but if you like to play the campaign mode you may be left wanting more. The review gives the game 9 out of ten overall; hit the link for the full review of the game.
