Whats wrong with BF3?

I have been playing a long time and I think it is the best in the series, why?

-Very polished graphics, sound, controls
-Huge amount of maps, vehicles, weapons
-Incredible cinematic feel to the game
-Very good pace of gameplay, never feel like your just wandering around the map as in previous battlefield games
-Awesome stat pages
-Great performance

What more could you ask for from a game?

It's perfect in almost everyway.

You must really blind to think that!

The game has no spectator mode making it unsuitable for competitive play
The netcode has been designed to operate around the lowest common denominator (suited for people with high ping rather than low ping)

Furthermore,

Why do games have to be cinematic? They are games, not movies.
Vehicles handle like bricks or have funky controls (especially aircraft)
No in game VOIP
No in game admin tools/control panel.. not even console commands
Massive sun flares that blind one team for no particular reason
Colour filters that quite literally stop you from seeing the enemies

While half the game is good, it's got all this useless BS attached and so many things missing.

Umm, troll? Well I am personally not trying to troll you. I just got this information is from gamespot and origin twitter accounts. I do not have control over those accounts so I am not doing anything other than reporting what they have said. They seem to suggest that they will be showing off the game soon especially with this sale, but I never stated that they will no doubt in fact show something at this very moment. The key word I used is "may" as in I am not certain. It could still be within the next few months, all I did was speculate on what this could mean, I did not state it as a fact. Can we be civil please, and not throw around bashing accusations. I want to be clear that if these accounts are somehow fake or hacked then they would be trolling both you and I, but I am not the one trying to troll you guys.

i bought it all for the 360 (what a loser i know) - played with friends, have over 600 hours logged.

Realized about 400 hours in that I would probably like it a lot more my pc since (afteral) the gtx 480 hadn't really been pushed by much (at least games that I cared for).


Found a key on ebay for 30 bucks- set it up- and now im waiting for premium to be $10-15.

I demand it!

better yet- everyone just go back to bf2142 with me.

Bf3 is like running through a live action movie,..who doesn't like that? non stop action...
Spectator mode? who cares?
netcode is client side. What you aim at is what you hit. I would say that's a good deal.
No ingame VOIP? on public servers it would become a crapstorm of young people screaming into the mic. You have teamspeak for organized voip.
No admin tools? what? you can set the settings for your server on the web page. Is that not enough?
Flares add new tatics and depth to the game, otherwise what is the point of flashlights, there are no dark spots?
Color filters? okay I guess the color gradient and contrast saturation of bf3 is a little odd but not to much of a big deal.
