I was hoping for the same but hopefully the AI will be throwing some serious heat during gameplay & the game will have even more open-field gameplay.

Intelligent AI + non-linear w/ massive open-field gameplay = replayability...Here's to wishing drunken.gif

So long as I don't spend those 10 hours hiding behind a wall, then it's all ok.

Also, proper replayability is when you finish a game, then you can play through again and collect new stuff and stuff you missed. Something like, say, Resident Evil 4. Once you finished, you played again with all your cash and weapons. That made it much more fun.

Fixed, at least for my opinion.

I didn't know BF2 even had a campaign.

Really doesn't matter to me. I never played BC2's story line nor BF2 and went straight to MP. BF3's story and visuals look great though - this game will probably break that trend.

Like they said, MP is going to be the meat and potatoes.

I hope the SP campaign is at least as good as BC2's. I loved the storyline and the length was just about right to me. I just hope there's some humor in BF3 (I know it'll be more serious than BC2).

As for MP, I just will never understand why on earth the majority of players like this. Run around randomly shooting everything in sight, get killed, respawn, rinse and repeat for hours on end. No thanks, I like a little story with my shooting. You know, an actual purpose to it all. But I seem to be in the minority here....

I don't get it.
Why are gamers "happy" to shell out £40 for 6-10 hours of gameplay?
"Oooh, but multi-player is where it's at". Nonsense; all the assets within multiplayer are IN THE sp game, so, why can't/don't lazy-ass devs make an sp campaign worth playing? Y'know, with a story/plot, and make it long enough for players to actually empathise with the protagonist.
It seems to me that all these COD/BF etc games sp campaigns are, in fact, merely tutorials for the free-to-play online arenas; you are paying £40+ for a tutorial.
Christ on crutches, the SHAREWARE version of Doom 1 (which cost me £1) lasted longer than these games!
On the other hand, we have a game incoming which, at release, will have over 150 dungeons and 300+ hours of gameplay. Yes, I realise that it is a totally different style of game, but, I believe my point is valid.

Don't get me wrong... I love (yet ANOTHER) shooty-war-no-brain-needed game as much as the next person, but I'll be damned if I will buy games like this @ full price.

And yet, this game WILL HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH BC2. It is Battlefield 3 not Bad Company 3. People have to get that out of their minds. Multiplayer and team oriented like it always should be and Battlefield fans like me want. You want a purpose, its to win and have fun.

So glad to hear that they are going to put in a single player campaign. I still wish BF2 had one. I always play a couple hours of the single player before ever touching the multiplayer, at least the first few missions anyway.

I never said it had anything to do with BC2, I just hope the SP story is as good as BC2. I am fully aware that this is a different franchise (BC2 is more of a BF-lite title originally for consoles). That doesn't mean that the campaign in BF3 can't have a good story though.

And like I said, you are in the majority with the MP stuff. I just don't get the point of running around like a chicken with its head cut off, spraying bullets in every direction until I get killed and respawn to do it all over again. There is no objective except to get killed less times than some other random guy. How fun...

Who here has finished BC2 single player?
I played BC2 SP for a few hours and went strait to MP if you ask me BF3 shouldn't even have a SP I'd rather have more assets, maps ect.
