Hey shaka fo00o, try practicing on the 2nd Co-op mission. Its around 15 minutes of dedicated chopper practice time.
Excellent tips - I just don´t understand players that rush off into the distance with a tank and just 1 guy inside - that´s instant death. Choppers I understand though, if they fly like me they´re doing the team a favour in not allowing passengers on their one way trip to firey death heaven...
Nice guide. Thanks GS. I hope the land vehicles arn't too over powering for the boots on the ground.
PS3 version is ugly on my LCD Sony TV, but i'm not the only one, in a forum (site from the netherlands) more dudes experience ugly graphics. Maybe this game looks good on a plasma, but i'm not gonna buy another tv, bought to many tv's and they all looked like crap with consoles. Thank god i can buy a gaming pc in the end of 2011, gonna play BF3 end this year, because ps3 version looks and plays like homefront.
@Rank0 - if you haven't tried Farcry 2 than you should. Farcry 3 looks amazing as well and for the open world shooter like that i dont need MP. PS - BF3's SP is pretty amazing. gameplay is very 2001. nothing really new. but it's still spectacular.
I would NEVER buy an FPS without multiplayer, so yes, basically i only buy FPS' with multiplayer component , unless there's some really EXTREMELY awesome story in the game that has an impact on my life or something (besides the time "loss" ;) ), and i never played a COD campaign that made me come back to it (or any other SP camaing in other shooters). And when choosing between BF multi and COD multi, it always comes down to BF for me. :*
Alright BF3's online will be better than MW3's online, but MW3's single player will most likely be better than BF3's is. In my opinion online gaming is a greater thrill than being involved in some fictional story where you are shooting at AI. BF3 gets the edge.
@iArtisan I love FPS single player campaigns as much as the next man, but Battlefields strength is it's multiplayer. Everyone knows it and it's all most people care about.
@aminal85 WTF? No. God I miss the days of actual single player first person shooters, crap like this is what brings Devs, like those who brought us Rage, down.
personally i think the singleplayer was the result of EA leaning on dice to compete with mw3. a far better idea wouldve been to make the singleplayer an in depth tutorial for multiplayer, with each level focusing on a different vehicle or soldier class.
In relation to this, if you're in a squad for 3-4 people and you notice that the majority of your squad is toting RPGs, C4, or some other form of AT weapon - and using them appropriately on enemy armor - go ahead and grab one of the AA rockets launchers! Not only does taking out those pesky enemy birds earn your a high-five from your team mates, it also nets you some nice points.
Don't know why people comment things that don't belong to the place they are posting. As for the video, the part of the chopper was kind of funny, the guy jump with the parachute thinking that he was going to save his ass, and they killed him in the air.
@ Tanares You're right about that, bro. Still, that 8.5 has to have EA super upset with GS. I knew something was wrong when they placed a review embargo, but I was expecting at least a 9.0. Oh, well. Arkham City for GOTY, baby!!!
@bat725 The score was deserved. Single player is quite buggy. Some issues such as a flight sim/practice mode for aircraft still have not been addressed since BF2. But because of the single player campaign, don't even think for 1 second that MW3 is going to have superior multiplayer... it won't Its been like I said all along: BF3 for multi, MW3 for single. Honestly Dice and Infinity Ward should just get together and make a single game. It would be like a license to print money =D
8.5 LOL! Where are all the BF fanboys? Still getting that foot out of your mouth? Black Ops got a better score than this! Guess I'll wait for MW3. LMAO!!!
so a MW3 add for a BF3 vid! i call BS GS!! Back to the point at hand, review is a general perspective, if you buy the game on release for the camp your Stupid! for any game that is!! ill get MW2 for the camp around x-mas, but i dont play CoD MP, BF3 MP is Astonishing to put it in layman's terms!
Hell yeah, got my limited edition of Battlefield 3 yesterday!!!. Come to papa online multiplayer! >D
There are lots of fa(g)s here saying the SP doesn't matter. Don't spoil the devs. They should always provide a balanced package - a solid SP and an epic MP. You make a fool of yourself by saying you can tolerate crap.
Multiplayer: 9.2 Single player: 4 I have never played a single player section of COD, BF. Less than 1% of people buy this game for the single player. I think reviews should take this into account. A fair review though all in all.
Dont worry they will give MW3 a 10! Who cares about single player anymore? I played like 10 minutes of COD BO SP but like 100 hours of MultiP?
Good points. +1 for not destroying a vehicle, but sometimes it's necessary, especially if there's a whole squad inside.
Here's a tip: practice using choppers and jets in a empty server before doing it in a real game. Please don't crash it over, and over, and over again. :)
