A fresh take on the classic Battlefield multiplayer, with the added bonus of the best offline campaign in the series.
Platform: Xbox 360
Released: June 23, 2008
New destructible environments only add to the time-tested Battlefield formula, and for the first time in the series yet, the singleplayer stands on its own.
A more gritty approach to the traditionally clean and always technically superb series. Explosions and collapsing buildings are particular standouts.
Some of the best sound effects, not just in the series, but all of video game history. Music does a great job of strengthening the many tones of the game.
*All aspects of the game, visuals and audio aside, are included and combined in the gameplay score. This includes features expected in the genre, replay value, technical performance, and others.
