Battlefield 3 Review

I’ve been a die hard Call of Duty fan for the last several years.  I’ve heard the rumblings that Battlefield was a superior game however I’ve always viewed it as more of a PC game.  In 2011,  Battlefield 3 was released shortly before the annual CoD game.  Many gamers decided that they had to have both,  while some chose one or the other.  Looking at sales,  I was in the majority and chose just one title and that was CoD.

Fast forward to Spring of 2012,  Battlefield 3 was on sale and I decided to pull the trigger and see what the fuss is about.  The first thing I noticed was the stunning graphics.  Visually the game is top notch.  DICE did a great job getting the most out of the Frostbite 2 engine.  The lights and darks really stand out.

Once I got used to the incredible visuals,  I tried to get a hold of the controls.  This is my number one complaint with the game.  The control scheme is extremely frustrating and feel like the exact opposite of what I would want in a FPS.  They do allow you to customize it to a certain degree but they never truly let you customize it to a perfect scheme.
