I have played my fair share of first person shooters in my day, and none of them has been as enjoyable as Battlefield 3 has been. Once you get the hang of piloting all of the vehicles, the game gets that much better. The sound of gunfire in the background, the visual effects the environment has, the equipment you carry actually playing a role in combat is the epitome of what I want out of a shooter. DICE has always made good games, and Frostbite is a wonderful engine. This game is a must rent.
Horrendous single player campaign with bad AI implementation. Enemies respawn over and over at times if you don't move forward in your position. They will continue to do so until you move forward. Friendly ally AI runs through walls and shoots at empty air. Multiplayer is what this game is all about but you can't play it without an EA Online Pass. Sure it's a pretty game but the single player campaign deserved more.
