It had the potential to be a true 10. There is certainly no other game like it available right now. The large scale warefare, limited destructibilty, balistics system, and team play ellements put it in a league of its own. That being said, there were to many thing that could have been improved upon.

Unfortunately, the defibrillators are a huge detriment to those players who like the more competitive play where teams get pushed back by casualties. Granted, some players may feel like this is a positive, allowing them to continue fighting and incur no deaths; this satisfies many younger players need for constant stimulation. On the other hand, the large scale vehicle warfare maps that reduce the effect of the defibrillators have their own problems. The air and ground warfare feel very separate, and the fast respawn times and armor regeneration makes damaging or even destroying vehicles seem unrewarding. The various glitched and overpowered weapons that plagued this game for nearly 8 months had a damaging effect on the will of players that just wanted a fair match.

So, overall, this game definitely had the potential to be one of the greatest games to date, but just couldn't put it all together. my rating: 7

This post is relevant only for those who played BF2. Console players and those who didn't play BF2 - don't even start to argue, I don't care anyway:

Ironic, that BF2 was less bugged when it was released than BF3 at its' release time. BF2 is even less bugged now. So why BF3 is mediocre game? There is one major reason:
Keyboard+mouse bundle was the essence of 3rd person shooter genre since it was created as such. Now the world gone crazy and people now playing shooters with controllers. For me it is like to hump an inflatable woman despite the fact that you got a beautiful wife. I lost count of how many times consoles spoiled PC versions of some games. Now you can enjoy BF3's console interface and those who miss commanders - you know what to blame. Not much more to say - those who understand will understand.

I know this is OT, buy why do you hate console users so? We're all merely playing a game...
My spelling and grammar incorrect? You're most likely reading a post from either DIce or Xile and confusing one of them with me ;)

Personally hit detection is everything followed by customer support.

Both have failed me miserably the former creating the ultimate sin in a videogame. Making a death feel like it was "bulls**t".
Most commonly dying 2 seconds after I run around a corner with 20 ping.

Top 0% for the M1014 apparently :D

I gave it a 9/10. It's for the most part solid gameplay that encourages teamwork and has the realism I desire. DICE has made their fair share of mistakes, but they're sure as hell better than most of the other devs out there. I'm still playing this game nearly a year after its launch and I'm quite content. I can't say the same for any other FPS out there.

I'm a fan of the show, but not a "Brony". I don't obsess over it, but I do watch it and enjoy it.

7. I was really looking forward to the game, the gameplay was already amazing in beta but I was just waiting for the big battlefield maps.

And then I got this console game :(

I'd give it an 8. It's a good game, I wouldn't still be playing it if I didn't like it, but it's definitely flawed, and EA's/DICE's sluggish patching schedule really bugs me.

I give it a 8/10. The game is good, and despite some flaws is quite fun to play.

There's a lot of variety in the game too, so you can play for a difference experience time to time.

IMO very few games deserve 9-10/10 scores, in my view the people who give those scores don't really look at the game objectively, but not like I care.

I find majority of the complaints I hear about this game somehow never appear in my games.

I'm giving it a 9/10 simply because the game is fun to play but it has it's downfalls, like any other game. One of the most annoying things is that I run around a corner when someone is shooting me, and 1-2 secs later, I die.

It's perfect in any aspect of the battlefield - infantry, air and ground. The graphics are glorious and balancing is excellent. Updates and customer service is much better than other games (Except TF2 - nothing can beat TF2 in updates and customer service). There are no gigantic fads like quickscoping that want you to rip your brains out because it's annoying. In fact, I'm playing BF3 right now - nothing is wrong with this game at all.

For sheer variability and scope, it's a 9 from me. No other game I've played affords you the same freedom to play the way you want to.

It's not perfect, but then what game is (apart from Bayonetta)
