My opinions on Battlefield 3  

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
Pros:
#The graphics are fantastic, and the performance is pretty good.
#Gun-play is much improved from BF2
#Infantry Combat is made much more significant and much more of a threat to vehicles compared to BF2.
#Land Vehicle combat is slightly improved from BF2
#Still lots of fun to fly the jets, and it is easier to fly close to the ground without exploding from hitting a piece of dirt.
#Better joystick support
#Great, amazing sound engine
#Character movements are realistic
# Fracking awesome knife animations
#Hardcore and Normal mode both are very fun, whereas i didn't enjoy normal mode in BC2
Cons:
#Jets are much much much worse than in BF2, they are too slow, and missiles take around 30 seconds of continued aiming to lock on, and most of the time they explode before they hit them. So it is now pretty much impossible to shoot down choppers with a jet because of the poor missiles.
#The gun on jets is way underpowered.
#Too easy to lock onto jets with the stinger missile.
#Helos are a little too slow, apart from that they are about the same as BF2.
#Jets lose complete control if you go above like 800 feet. (As in you slowly fall back down and once you get to an "Acceptable" height you regain control
#AA guns are a little overpowered, as they can shoot down a jet in one burst, and is insanely hard to maneuver away from. Thus, giving you about a 250 meter wide area you can fly in to avoid the enemy AA batteries.
#It is extremely difficult to stay in the fight on smaller conquest maps, when in a jet.
#Sidearms are a tad underpowered. You have to put 3 shots into someone with a M1911 to take them down. Even more with the smaller caliber weapons, although they have a much higher RoF so it makes up a bit.
#Grenades and rockets alike have pretty much no splash damage or area of effect. As in you have to just about have the grenade land at their feet to damage them.
#LMGs are a tad underpowered since they, IRL fire the largest rounds out of most the guns, and do the least amount of damage in game.
#Lots of choke-points in the maps
#I have been playing about non-stop for the last 3 days and have not ever been past the second set of objectives in Rush (I have never gotten to base-jump ) The rush maps are extremely one-sided, and unless you have a pure teamwork team you are not going to make it past the first set, and even then you would be lucky to get past the second group.
#Some conquest maps are still fairly small. The only really big ones are Caspian Border, Tehran Highway and Operation Firestorm.

Overall:
Do i think it was worth 60 dollars? IDK, i would have rather payed 40 but i have still enjoyed the game so far
Good for just being released? Yes, i think they did a pretty good job
Best Battlefield so far? Not quite but with some updated, anything is possible.

Here's to waiting for BF3142 were they will do most everything right.

Honestly from what I've read and seen in vids I was expecting the jets to be like that...kind of why I haven't bought the game yet. Flying would be a big part of the game for me.

I also think it would be awesome to have an array of knifes to choose from. Nothing but aesthetic differences though, like some cool tactical blades.

40mm grenades need more nerfing.

The one thing that is missing is Bombers for more destruction.
Every player wants to see carnage, but it is caused mostly by tanks and very less by planes.
I wish bombers were there in this game.

I agree with pretty much all your points. Even though I've unlocked all upgrades for jets I still find them underpowered. First of all they should be able to fire a bit longer without having to reload. Also they lack bombs, the unguided rockets are way underpowered and you gotta fire two whole sets of rockets to destroy a tank and the guided air to ground missile only does 34% damage. Because of that, if you're up in the air you'll be taking out planes & choppers 90% of the time and not doing much else. I agree the splash damage is ridiculous on any weapon that explodes, from plane's unguided rockets to grenades. Planes should be able to fly at least twice as fast and up to 2,000ft to escape overpowered AAs.
I've only won one rush round as attacker.
I was looking forward to flying the A10, unfortunately it's only available on rush maps and I've had only one kill with it since there is always someone who plays the whole round in AA and shoots you down as soon as you get close.

This, I was kind of hoping we would be able to swap out basic grenades too, for smokes, concussion, etc.

I really like the game, have gotten around 30hrs in so far for multiplayer, and all my annoyances are small stuff, like why the hell cant i enter the menu during a death cam, or why isn't there more stuff on the final scoreboard after a match? (also why cant we enter the menu there too?)

I also don't really like the jets, I have figured out how to fly them, but I don't think I have gotten a SINGLE kill in them, just too difficult or i'm bad...

I think most of the classes are pretty balanced, but the recon class is somewhat weak, the sniper rifles aren't as great as I thought they would be, but any better and they would be OP. I have out-sniped a sniper twice so far using machine guns. Seems like that shouldn't happen, but who knows, they could have been bad/new or whatever .


Sorry for the rant, but I do like your list. I agree with most of it Especially with your last con; especially metro conquest is completely ridiculous. It is almost ALWAYS one sided. One team turtles at two caps and wins, or pushes all the way to the spawn for a bloodbath.
