I really like to play Battlefield 3, but there are just so many issues that this game has caused that instead of being a "watershed moment" in gaming history its becoming more of a "tool-shed moment" in gaming history.
When I first picked up my reserved copy I was stoked, but that sensation was soon exhausted when I found that the insane amount of memory, and ram used from this game literally burnt out my xbox. This was during campaign mode, because as we all know, the DICE servers can't stay up for more than 5 hours, so I thought Ill get a feel for the story (if you want to call it a story).
For me Operation Guillotine was what decapitated my xbox. Only 30seconds in and the screen glitches and goes black, forcing me to bail out to the dashboard. Upon the second attempt of running BF3, I get to the same location and the same glitch happens, though this time accompanied by a dancing red ring of death.
Overall this game has way too many screw ups and issues to even be considered a decent gaming experience.
