So, another highly anticipated installment of the "Battlefield" series.
Lets start by looking at the game itself, the graphical detail is unacceptable unless you decide to download the textures pack from XBL Marketplace which if you have a slower internet connection can be a hindrance, especially considering that the game is shipped with TWO disks!
The single player as with many modern FPS game is like a reworking of all previous shooters with whole levels closely resembling previous games from different series (including the CoD series). Ontop of this the campaign itself is predictable and short. Why do they bother!?
Multiplayer is another story completely! Spacious maps, varied weapon sets,all with their uses. However the class system is slightly blured compared to the original well defined system from Bad Company 2, by combining some of these classes some of the uniqueness has gone.
The base game has a selection of decent maps, some obviously better than others but never-the-less, good. When compared to it's opposition, Modern Warefare 3, this game far outshines it with an update to date engine and a developer who listens and cares about their community!
Overall, I was impressed with the multiplayer. That was all, while the graphics may be better than all other current console games this game gives the signs that the Xbox 360 has reached it's limits. The Single player was a let down and the interface was clunky at times.
3/5 - Excellent service from Play.com as per usual.
