Game Score : 27/30

Hi Fans and Haters new and old; welcome to another video game review here on Zalgo Cometh. Sad to say this might be my last video game review with play-through commentary for you guys for a while since i'm going to be relocating soon but in the pursuit of gaming I will try to make the best of it and make it work. Worse case scenario there will be no more MNATM downloads and no video game play-throughs but there will still be content posted to our Facebook page and Twitter. Now that the boring stuff is out of the way lets jump into our game of choice for today; Battlefield 3.

Battlefield 3 (commonly abbreviated to BF3) is a first-person shooter action video game developed by EA Digital Illusions CE and published by Electronic Arts. Battlefield 3 features the maximalist combined arms battles that made the series popular across single-player, co-operative and multiplayer modes. It reintroduces several elements absent from the Bad Company games, including fighter jets, the prone position and 64-player battles on PC. To accommodate the lower player count on consoles, the ground area will be limited for Xbox 360 and PS3, though fly space will remain the same. The single player campaign is regrettable short but this is to be expected as this game focuses more on the multi-player portion of your gaming experience. The story revolves around a terrorist attack that is about to take place and the events that lead up to it.

Battlefields 3 uses a new graphical engine called Frostbite 2. The next generation of Frostbite has debuted with Battlefield 3. It takes full advantage of the DirectX 11 API and 64-bit processors, with no support for DirectX 9 (nor, therefore, Windows XP). It also features enhanced in-game destruction with Destruction 3.0, creating more refined physics than its predecessor. Battlefield 3 has two major selling points; the beautiful graphics and environmental damage in game as well as the immense multi-player maps that hold up to 64 players at any instance. Many people are drawing comparisons between the COD franchise and Battlefield 3 as one would expect since they are more or less competing rivals, but to me the difference is is as clear as night and day. COD has seemingly always been the arcade military shooter of choice and Battlefield has seemingly taken up the mantle of being the simulation military shooter of choice. EA has surely yet again delivered a masterpiece of a game that is poised to be called the game of the year by many. I highly recommend both fans and haters (COD fanboys), to play this game and immerse yourself in the gaming experience it offers as you will not be disappointed. Here is some footage of what may be my last video game play through here on Zalgo Cometh, hope you enjoyed the blogs and laughs; just remember to keep on gaming...
