Thirsty Conversations: What Do You Think Of Battlefield 3?

Battlefield 3 is now available the world over. If you purchased the shooter, then most likely you’ve played it.

So, what do you think of EA’s much hyped shooter? Let’s talk. Do it here: The Official Gamesthirst Pentagon.

    I haven’t spent much time on the single player but the MP is refreshing. The more I play it, the more I really enjoy it. With MW3 coming out in a week, we shall see where I spend most of my time.

    That’s the big question: will people stay with BF3, or will they migrate to MW3. The sales debate is already over. We already know who’ll win there.

  • bobromines77

    With my work schedule, the next time I pick up a controller, both games will be available to me. I have a feeling I will be playing more mw3, as this will be the game of a majority of people i play with. A group of us is having a COD weekend, in which we start playing on Friday and play thru the weekend at my home. Just food, beer and gaming! All 5 of us in the group will have MW3 but only 3 of us with have BF3.

    And that’s one of the biggest reasons why it’ll do way better. Where’s your local? I’m coming over!

    I’m still bringing BF3 to COD weekend. It’s like Legos and MW3 will be like Duplos.
    On to the topic at hand, I can’t seem to play the Single Player of BF3 for more than a short period of time but the MP is great. Once you start upgrading your weapon and unlocking stuff the fun begins. I don’t do so well on Rush because I’m trying to complete the objective…thus, dying quite a bit.
    It’s great but I’m waiting for them to fix the squad separation and mic issues.

    I enjoyed the campaign. I have to say it was way too short and I had hope DICE would have put a bit more effort in the game’s single player. The story is a bit weak but the single player’s presentation is top quality. As for the multiplayer…come on…it’s Battlefield, I am having a blast with the multiplayer. I even got to do some killing with Gilbert

    @patrick: Same here. I’m an objectives guy so I die a lot. TDM is good fun. MW3 next Tuesday. Mental stuff.

    @Clank: Yesterday was great fun. You guys already know how I feel about BF3′ SP.

  • CaribbeanCLANK

    @Gilbert…hurry up and get ur headset. I really need to get a new Modem/Router. I think the issues I am having with my connection is because of the one I have.

  • Dean Kent

    Multiplayer is great just not enough headsets online

  • rpatricky

    @Dean Kent – I don’t think it is so much enough headsets as it is that they just don’t work. Myself, my brother and my friend have had our headsets on but can not hear or communicate on most occasions.

  • Joseph Garrett

    I am not looking forward to MW3 anymore. I don’t want to to take any time from BF3. I can’t get enough of it.

  • http://www.gamesthirst.com Ernice Gilbert

    @Joseph: Actually, playing Battlefield 3 has me looking forward to Modern Warfare 3 more than ever. I don’t know why… Anyone else feels this way?

  • http://www.gamesthirst.com Ernice Gilbert

    I’m getting my headset next week, guys. Uncharted 3 tomorrow!

  • Joseph Garrett

    @Ernice: Really?! I haven’t played it loads but loved it so far. Stick to rush and conquest and get a full squad of buddies and it’s so much fun.

    I am making the most of newcomers to battlefield and having A blast killing everything. haha

  • http://www.gamesthirst.com Ernice Gilbert

    Hahahaha. You’re veteran so you must be having a blast killing the new boys!

    im really enjoying it so far, only thing that has let me down is strangley what DICE normally do best.
    the graphics on consoles are pretty good, but on PC it seriously leaves things to be desired.
    freaking crysis 2 looks better on PC!
    i was really expecting DICE to pull out all the stops graphics wise on BF3, but they dident.
    the texture detail is so low, the AA is pretty weak.
    they had WAY more features to tweak and enjoy with BC2 then they did this, HTF does that work!?
    you need more antoscopic filtering options, you need more AA options, you need more shader options.
    the texture detail is really low too.
    i cant wait till the mods start rolling in for BF3, especially the infamous ienhancer mod for GTAIV is coming over to BF3 so that should touch up the graphics to my expectations.
    im just really disappointed, i was expecting BF3 to come out and blow everything out of the water on PC.
    but it dident, theres plenty games out there that blow it out of the water!
    very disappointed!
    not to mention the destruction, its so freaking limited!
    eh, technically wise its been a massive disappointment!
    gameplay wise though its as usual, DICE still are and always will be the kings of the military shooter!

  • http://www.gamesthirst.com Ernice Gilbert

    The destruction is VERY limited on consoles btw.

  • nick

    its pretty much the same on PC.
    the graphics and destruction really leaves allot to be desired.
    other then that im really enjoying it!

    Awesome mp no doubt.
