The videos look great, but I'd like to see a multiplayer video before I buy it, but I'll probably buy it anyway.

The lynchpin of the BF series has always been the multiplayer - in fact, none of the flagship titles or their spinoffs (1942, Vietnam, BF2, BF2142) even had a legitimate single player mode (just you vs bots in the existing MP maps). Those of you whose only exposure to the franchise have been the BC games are likely in for a shock, at least on PC. And maybe even a treat!

I guess it's a pretty big deal that they're shipping a SP campaign with this game, seeing as it's a first for a main installment, but really it's just a showcase for their awesome engine as well as some attractive bait to hook CoD fans. MP is the meat of the game, and BC/BC2's gameplay was really just a taste of what Battlefield is all about. The SP campaign could be absolute trash and it'd still take GOTY honors if the MP delivers on the series' legacy.

Did none of you guys play BF2 or BF1942? There's a reverence for the main titles that the developers speak with that they openly admit was not part of the BC mission statment. Bad Company and BC2 were stopgaps meant to expand the series to a wider audience, BF3 is the real deal.


And my CoD statement was mostly tongue-in-cheeck, as there will always be a faction of gamer that values K/D above anything else and he will always find a happy (if lazily constructed) home with Activision, but I think it's pretty clear that DICE has targeted IW this time and they aren't effing around. IW themselves admit they're not packing as much firepower, and I fully expect that EA smells blood and is going to give BF3 the full-on Madden marketing blitz this fall.

I care. I like a good campaign. Multiplayer is fun when you have a group together, but otherwise I find it fairly boring after a short period of time. That being said, the only one of the Big 3 FPS that had a good campaign in the latest generation is Reach. The Blops single player was okay, but the last BC2 single player wasn't much fun.

Anyway, they do also need good multiplayer because even a very good campaign gets boring after ten or so hours and a game isn't worth $60 if you only get 10 hours of good gameplay out of it.

As far as KZ3. I thought the campaign was okay. It was slow at the start, but it picked up nicely in the middle with some different missions. The problem is that the ending and the last 30 mintues or so of the game were pretty terrible.

i can roll by myself and have fun in some MP games.....BC2, warhawk and a few others....but i don't generally like people and i use blueteefs so they can't hear me anyway

and lol at the Reach campaign being better than Blops

i guess my point was that without multiplayer, most games would never even come close to the sales they see now.....and even 10 hours is probably too long for a shooter.....7 is plenty

obviously, your face is terrible

honestly, i haven't picked up the campaign in a while.....i have just been playing the MP with my real life friend.....but i have slacked off on kz3 and bc2 since i had Gran Turismo from GF.....

Meh, it's subjective. I enjoyed the Reach campaign. I thought Blops was pretty good. It might have been better had I not been playing it in short spurts between the multiplayer.

It's okay. Like I said, there are some interesting missions in the middle, but the end game isn't much to write home about. You're not really missing anything if you don't finish it.

ok....I just saw an awesome commercial for battlefield 3 while watching family guy. Did they push the release date up for this game? Seems quite early to start playing commercials even if they are trying to get you to pre-order.

No they didn't. I'm pretty sure MW2 had commercials playing this early before its release as well though.
