About Battlefield 3
In an era when the market for military-based, first-person shooters has been dominated by one franchise, the bar was set high for any potential competitors to break into the big time. No other game has attempted this better than Battlefield 3 . Many consumers feel this game has surpassed its genre predecessors. Battlefield 3 utilises the most advanced physics engine of its generation to incorporate enormous destructible landscapes, breathtakingly visceral battles, and the added dynamic of vehicles on land, sea and air, to deliver a complete military combat experience for gamers. Intricately rendered graphics bring every game environment to life; it glows with spectacular lighting effects, and is charged with masterfully integrated sound, to further immerse the player. The solo campaign pushes these elements to their limit, with a suspenseful and dramatic plot that keeps you guessing until the finale. What really sets Battlefield 3 apart is the online multiplayer feature. Games are mostly objective-based, empowering players with numerous ways to contribute to the team; you play to your strengths, and exploit your opponent’s weaknesses. Close quarters ground combat takes place beneath supersonic dogfights. Helicopter and armoured support lead the charge; however, they require ongoing repairs. Anti-tank and anti-air specialism is an option, while some choose to fight from a distance as snipers or use stealth to infiltrate enemy lines. Fully customisable player classes allow individuals to enter the fray equipped to compete in the way that best suits them, earning rewards of more gear to really make their mark on the battlefield. Also included is a co-operative mode; separate missions that train and test you and your friends’ skills at virtually every approach to playing the game, preparing you for the challenges the multiplayer will present and even allowing you to unlock more equipment to use online.
