I usually dive right into the single-player of a game before I touch the multiplayer, and in some cases never booting up the multiplayer, but for this game I have not. In fact I feel any real impetus to do so for the foreseeable future. How many of you didn't even boot up the single-player yet?
I booted it up, it's pretty by the numbers outside of a few interesting sequences.I did have one beautiful glitch where all my squad guys ran through a door and disappeared before one of them came back through the door and kicked it open for me. It was like they suddenly remembered that my character is a man with a gun attached to a stump and is completely unable to turn a doorknob. I'll finish it but it's mostly a time killer.
I finished it but pretty much had to force myself to. I played it on hard and there were definitely moments where I wanted to throw my controller. Especially on Operation Guillotine. But yea, this is one of the very few games where I went straight into multiplayer when I got it. Single player is nothing special.
I played through it mostly when my friends or clan mates where offline. Very short, it was decent fun considering BF2 never had a single player. I don't think it was on the story level of BFBC2. However at least as a PC player playing the game was beautiful. It felt like a benchmark program the entire time.
I'm almost done with it, and I have to day I don't mind it. Looks amazing, some fun set pieces, and a story that isn't as stupidly over the top as MW2 was (loved MW1, hated 2).
I think Medal of Honour had the best campaign of the recent batch (small scale, fairly realistic), followed by this, Blops, then BC2 and MW2 bringing up the rear.
Not that it matters anyway, as holy shit that multiplayer!
Just beat it. I liked it. I'd say I enjoyed the way Black Ops did it better, but I like the realism throughout BF3s singleplayer. I think my favorite is still CoD4 if we're talking about military shooters. So, BF3 is probably my third favorite. Just please fix the bugs!
