Rated 5 out of 5 by TemplarKnight If you're looking for a first person shooter that delivers fast paced, objective based, team oriented game play with graphics and dynamics that are so realistic it's SCARY, then look no further than Battlefield 3. This game boasts a wide variety of weapons to unlock and use. There are many fun ground and air vehicles to control and master. (The air units will take some getting used to, but are still a blast to try out) Another great aspect about Battlefield 3 is that you really feel like you're making a difference as to the outcome of each game. You're not rated on how many kills you're racking up, but rather your overall score contribution to the team. You earn points for everything beneficial that you do. Scouting enemy units on the map, healing and reviving teammates, repairing allied vehicles, capturing objectives, there's always something to do! Whether you want to put a lot of hours into this game or just hop on every now and again for some fun, this game is a great choice!

First I am a guy that plays video games a couple of hours on Friday Saturday and Sunday so 6 hours total a week. I can not dedicate my life to learning and getting good at a game. I have now played it about 4 different times over the weekend since I purchased on a Friday. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE TIME you will quickly hate this game. with no experience you get dumped into a battleground with professionals who live just to play this game. So you will get slaughtered over and over and over. the professionals have better guns which are not available to you and know the maps inside out. So you have absolutely no chance. There is no ranking system to match players. There are no bots that fill in empty slots. And, the servers are privately owned so there is no consistency with games. the vehicles are incredibly hard to drive/fly. Incidently Halo has some of the same issues. No good matching of opponents. If you want a good multiplayer go get Gears of war 3 . You can get plenty of practice playing bots while learning the maps and the capabilities of the weapons. IF you are already a professional then you might like it.
