Been following since the teaser trailer which is awesome, in my opinion. This game is a definite pre-order and looks amazing! Screw Crysis 2, altho' I look forward to it as well.

Frostbite 2 is gonna kick ass!

GDC: Battlefield 3 is Beautiful

It may well be better than Crysis 2 (which, other than gfx doesn't impress me).

New personal rule from now on: no pre-ordering anything until after playing the demo.

Well, if there's a demo of BF3, and it's impressive enough to warrant the cost, I will definitely consider it. :)

I canceled my pre-order on Crysis due to someone mentioning a console type gui but I will be all over this battlefield when it comes out.

Dang! Pretty amazing stuff; though knowing myself, I'd probably be a nervous wreck after playing a round or two! Looks awfully good though..!

But new standard applies: no demo, no buy. :geek:

Hmm, new thought: is this a sandbox-type multiplayer game? i.e. extra large map-capable (ala Crysis Wars) instead of Black OPS rats-running-around-in-a-small-cage maps? It looks promising...

I'm realizing that besides the vehicles (ok, the cloaking and jumping too) I really miss the extra-large maps of Crysis Wars where you had tons of room to move, hide, plan and breathe...

IMO sandbox/open-world games provide:

- Plenty of space (no claustrophobic attacks!)
- Virtually unlimited pathways to move and attack (none of this "sorry; you can't climb on top of this rock or jump over that ledge" fail).
- No running around in circles (while Call of Duty: Black Ops is fun, this gets old pretty fast!)
- Inclusion of vehicles virtually necessitates large spaces, and adds to the variety of attack/escape options.
- Dynamic (not static) environment: trees and bushes move, dust, shoot down birds, etc.

Some new videos and a hands-on review of multiplayer (looks like this may well live up to the promises):

Nice find.

Just watched Modern Warfare 3's gameplay vids: http://ps3.gamespy.com/playstation-3/ca ... eedfetcher

The sights, the sounds, the obvious wave of infinite enemy AI spawns! MW3 is undoubtedly a redressed clone.

All hail, BF3!

BF3 is going to blow COD away. Unless Infinity Ward/Treyarch starts doing something other than reskinning their textures, its going to suck for them.

Well said, and you don't create new, ground-breaking engines overnight. Marketing alone does not a successful gaming company make.

It is true that they can't make new game engines overnight.....but if they at least started from when MW2 was released, they would have had much progress.

At least they should get the hint now......start when MW3 is completed. LOL.

Looks like EA may be backpeddling on BF3 after all when it comes to Steam:

"EA’s Jens Uwe Intat told Eurogamer last week that the company isn’t planning on making its games Origin-exclusive. "Competition and choice go hand in hand," he said. "So the fact we will only distribute our own games on our own platform, I don't see that."

It should run ok, but don't expect to play on Ultra settings. Probably medium or medium-high settings.

So....initial review...as much a condemnation of ATI as for the game itself.
Anyone playing this? What are your experiences?

I have tried. I will now try it after rolling back to last months release my "brand new just for BF3 beta drivers". Game Plays for 5 mins then freezes. Freezes also when I try to save a setting. The thing needs to open a Browser Window in order to play.
So far the game play is not at all like any of the trailers.....walk in line single file follow the yellow brick road and do what it tells you because you do not have to think. Only thing good so far is the sound. What happened to the wide open sandbox trend in games?

Paid 49 bucks and am not happy. BBC2 is still buggy as crap for me losing my experience rank frequently but it appears again when I reboot.... so I am definitely turning sour on everything EA. A few hours on the help line has done nothing but waste time....although to their credit they were very polite in telling me to roll back the drivers as they are working on the Profiles.

BTW what is your take on this Origin crap? Prior to being sucked into this well marketed BF3, I had some Microsoft Games for Windows to download one game I wanted. Then I needed Steam to download the only games that play well with no trouble at all which are COD Black Ops and COD MW2. I already have the EA downloader for what I cannot remember. Now I had to download this ORIGIN which opens a Browser in order to play the game which resides on the disc I physically possess?
Something smells like a sham...like in the near future all these special downloading programs will be the gatekeepers of my computer to make more money off of me after the sale. :evil: :fishslap:

Thanks for the review zaksdad12!

I'd like to hear more from you guys so don't be shy! I haven't got the game yet because I have 0 time to play so no rush for me. I expected everyone to have issues with the Origin/browser bs, but I'd like to hear reviews on single and multiplayer. I had the same freeze problems in Beta zak talked about, anyone else? Worth the money?

Thanks

Here's a BF3 CPU/GPU benchmark test from Guru3D.

***I love how the reviewer was locked out of his Origin account.***
