As others have described the campaign is similar in concept to COD Black Ops (flashback sequences). I personally think it is more interesting and better executed than Black Ops. Frankly though you buy a shooter like this for the multi-player.
As one would expect the multi-player delivers well. It is similar to BC2...but some nice enhancements in being able to lay down (sniper friendly), suppression, and enhanced melee.
I play pretty much every shooter (including COD) so this is an accurate assessment. There are a few kinks they need to work out in the multi-player. However, that is nothing new (see almost every AAA release this year). This is the best shooter of the year so far. We'll see how MW3 fairs (I hope it is good).
This is a must rent for a shooter fan although I'd just suggest buy (as you need the online pass anyway for multi-player). As others have said rent from Gamefly (buy at reduced price) and you'll get the case and online pass.
1) enhanced graphics
2) best campaign in a BF game yet (which isn't their strong suit, didn't even used to have one)
3) tighter controls and nifty features like suppression
4) the sound of a BF game is wonderful
5) destruction of environment
1) few minor glitches with multi-player & campaign (nothing as bad as Black Ops or Resistence 3 though)
2) story is nothing new

i will admit that i've only been playing this game for a week or so and that i haven't unlocked much, but i can say that the game is great. i played battlefield BC2 and was glad to hear about BF3 from the minute it was announced. The multiplayer will take months to finish, and that's without unlocking vehicle and co-op awards. while the single player is a disappointment, i hardly doubt anybody is looking for a great single player experience in multiplayer game. I'm looking forward to see what call of duty will do in a couple weeks, but whatever it is, it will have to be pretty amazing. I'm looking forward to playing both COD and BF and not having to pick sides.
Since I played this on campaign mode and then played it online, the online experience is all to real... MW3 has nothing on this game with being able to drive a variety of vehicles and actually interact with them this game has everything I was looking for in a war game. Doubt I will ever go back to MW3, in fact I may just go and take MW3 and trade it in to GameStop!!!!!
