You could perhaps go into some details as to why you feel this way rather than just making a topic to let us know you didn't enjoy it. You'll often find that extra mile you go to make your topics discussion worthy will be received better by the community :)

I don't think he needs to go into detail as to why he doesn't like it. I can understand, because from everything I've seen so far, it doesn't look great at all.

I'll demo it, and see if I like it. I'll buy it if it's OK.

It's a sequel to Battlefield: Bad Company 2.

If you didn't like that game (and there were PLEEEENTY of people who didn't), this won't change anything.

@AnimalFather: You do realise that this campaign is not made by the same people who made the MoH campaign?

I'm sorry, but did you read any of the reviews? The singleplayer is easily the weakest part of the game.

Also, after BC2, I would be very surprised if DICE could figure out how to make a good singleplayer campaign.

You bought it for the singleplayer, thats crazy. Even though im not going to get it, the multiplayer is the biggest draw here. its a tacked on single player experience

I was not impressed by the 360 beta and I was disappointed by the Quick Look. If a PC QL is released on the site and is WAY better in terms of graphics, then, and only then, will I consider Battlefield 3 a successful venture.

Pretty much what I expected. People want COD to fail so badly they will overhype the exact same game with better graphics. It's like going to comic-con wearing a Spock costume and looking at someone wearing a Jedi costume and saying "what a fucking nerd".

Wait. You spent $60 on a Battlefield game expecting a monumental singleplayer experience that you would forever remember? And expect a radical departure from the series' signature multiplayer experience? I'm sorry, but that was a fairly poor decision on your part. You shouldn't buy games based off commercials, hype, or review scores. Do, however, take those three things into consideration, then apply a little cold hard logic to the equation. And maybe the content of a few trusted reviewers' pieces.

Really surprised at the lack of "I can't believe I wasted $60 on YOUR MOM" responses. Well done, community!

That said, I can't believe I wasted $60 impregnating your mother. Seriously.

@BeachThunder: Not because it should be shit, but because you should expect a major developer to half-ass a singleplayer campaign for an historically multiplayer focused game. Especially when the singleplayer only exists to coax a few more people into buying the game.

I like the game, but frankly I feel like the multiplayer maps are a *little little bit* disappointing.

I've played the beta enough not to want to play metro or caspian border again at least in a while, so that's 7 new maps for me. A lot of recycled buildings here and there (I'm looking at you Seine crossing). Not that I expect the devs to spend too much time making new walkways for tehran highway or the grand bazaar, but i just felt there could have been just one or two more maps to play on if they're just using the same architectures again. I have yet played on Kharg Island, but so far I like the urban maps way more and that's why I kind of wish there was a NYC map from the singleplayer.

I feel like half the maps are built in the bad company 2 mould, while the others vaguely battlefield (open areas) and battlefront (tight urban). I really wished they added mod support so the community can make more maps to play on. Anyways, I'm enjoying the game, maybe just not as much as i expected after playing the very well designed metro.

If I gauged the videogame industry from your posts, I would think that these big budge well produced games were completely unplayable regardless of taste or opinion, and that we lived in a creative wasteland where everything sucks so much no matter how many talented people spent years of their lives on something that didn't live up to your particular expectation.

Regardless if OP was a troll or not I couldn't agree more. I'm so pissed. I was sold a Battlefield game, not a fucking Call of Duty game. The crap thing is I just pre-ordered MW3 when I picked up this because I knew I would play the MP with my friends. Now I feel like I bought the same game twice.

When you do everything in your power to market something like Call of Duty people will treat it like Call of Duty.

Honestly.... yea. Naturally people wish to spend their full price for a well rounded package, but as far as the Battlefield franchise is concerned it's been multiplayer first. With this outing they decided to attack from the campaign, co-op, and multiplayer fronts to try and round out the value; however it's clear the main drive here is still the multiplayer, just as it has been since BF1942. If you are, have ever, or will ever purchase a battlefield game based upon anything other than its multiplayer, you've lost. I'm not saying it's a great way to warrant you paying $60, nor am I saying I'm fond of them just tacking shit on because they felt the need. I am however saying that it's to be expected. Anything better than terrible in a BF campaign is a pleasant surprise.

It is. I already put more hours than I should into the PC version, it's delicious. Just make sure you have a speaker set that can handle the loudness you'll want to crank up. I had to stop chuckling to myself while watching the quicklook because I was reminding myself of a PC elitist, but that place looked barren, and just plain ugly.
