Horrible

A potentially great game ruined by EA

Great graphics and sound. Loved playing on my Epson 8350 projector and hearing the sound through my kef speakers. Aside from that, the campaign was short, full of glitches, and didn't really have any flow to it but overall the game was enjoyable.

The issue I have with it, is the Online pass that one must buy if they either rent the game, borrow it from a friend, or buy it used.
I WILL NEVER BUY A GAME THAT USES THIS BUSINESS PRACTICE and I will make sure I go out of my way to influence other peoples' decision to not buy these types of games. I recommend everybody speak with their wallets and stop this practice before other game companies decide to take notice and becomes an industry standard. These companies need to stop trying to nickel and dime us every chance they get. I guess millions in profits is not enough these days.

SO THIS GAME IS A DON'T BUY

Game looks great. all the weapons seem similar though. The storyline makes sense but isn't very in depth. You dont care about the characters. You have to spend 800 points to download something t play online. well if you're renting it 800 point is a lot. Beat it in 5 hours and sent it back.

The game is awesome. The Call of Duty franchise does not compare.

I wish GameFly would mention not including the Online Pass unless you buy the game, though. You can get a 48-hour trial from onlinepass.battlefield.com, which is what I did.

I might even keep this one. Definitely recommend it.
