Good Fun, but makes a bad rental

Hi all,

Can't fault BF3, lives up to the Hype, at least in the quick time that I played it. I'll go back, perhaps, but right now Batman and GoW3 have me occupied.

As a Rental, be warned, you need to have the online pass to play. 800 MS Points. It would have been nice to have a 3 day trial, would have convinced me more than the draconian measure that is in place.

Cheers All!

I live near EA offices in Orlando, Florida and I was thinking about going down and throwing some Rotten Eggs at the windows on Halloween. I mean come on don't they make enough money? Its bad enough that we pay a ton of money for x-box live but they decided that they wanted a bigger piece of the pie so they decided that renters were going to have to pay an extra 10 bucks to play online. Its really to bad cause the graphics (the HD ones) are awesome. Oh well they seem to have ticked off enough people that maybe they will do something about it.

I don't play online games as I prefer something with a story, but I rented this to try the single player campaign. No story, no immersion, no feeling of continuous gameplay, just go over here and shoot some guys before the next long, boring cutscene, repeat ad nauseum.. yawn. Maybe military-themed FPS just aren't my thing. I'd give it a 5 for the single player campaign alone, but then when I heard about the multiplayer ripoff I knocked it down to 2, cause that's just some shady business practices, even though I don't care about the multiplayer myself.
