Battlefield 3 represents EA's most recent installment of its counter-strike to the Call of Duty series. Set in the very near future and controversially opening in the very real global badland of Iran, the game features its now trademark multi-disciplined first person combat and follows a plot which takes in New York, Tehran, Paris, Oman and Kuwait. The compelling multiplayer option (for some, the crux of the game) revolves around four distinct character classes: Assault, Support, Engineer and Recon, each taking on unique roles and weapons expertise in the battleground and numerous DLC patches add other modes.
VerdictRead the review
Brilliant and unrivalled multiplayer makes it a game worth playing, despite bugs and crappy singleplayer.
