Epic fail for Battlefield 3 Beta, tricked by EA/DICE

By Peter Chubb - Oct 4, 2011

Battlefield 3 Beta has come under a huge amount of criticism since it was launched last week, and they just keep coming in. Earlier today we heard from an ex SWAT member who was unhappy with some of the features, more so to do with tactical and laser lights. The latest issue with the game comes from an everyday gamer, saying that BF3 Beta is an epic fail, as EA and DICE has tricked us.

According to Sarcastic Gamer, the developer and publisher have released a game that is like human waste and then said to us that they can clean it up. That’s pretty strong because how can it be that bad? We have to wonder why the beta was rushed, even spending just a few more weeks on the game would have helped, but maybe all they want is to gauge a reaction from gamers?

There is not long to go before the full version of the game is launched, so all involved has to be working frantically to rectify all the issues that have been found so far. It’s no secret that the build was rushed out, and that it was done just to see if the servers could cope, but talk about playing fans of Battlefield 3 for fools, as they were looking forward to playing a half-decent game – something that the did not get.

Modern Warfare supporters will be laughing about now, saying what a failure BF3 beta has been, but the opposition will come back and say that it is just a beta after all. We should not come down too hard on DICE or EA, as this build is over a month old, and we still have just under a month before release, so that would mean that the final version would have had around another two months worth of work.

What has confused many gamers is the fact that there were no negative reviews before the beta version was released; Sarcastic Gamer (not PR News) has a theory that the press was paid off in some way. Now that is a huge claim, one that we wouldn’t like to comment on.
