Want to know what a fifteen year old gamer thinks about the newly released Battlefield 3? My friend Cody is an avid gamer and is an expert when it comes to the latest first-person shooter video games. I asked Cody to tell me what he thought about the latest release of Battlefield 3 (released in North America on October 25, 2011 – the game sold 5 million copies in its first week of release, and was released to critical acclaim from most game reviewers). Here is what Cody told me:
“Battlefield 3 has changed its look completely. It has a new HUD (Heads Up Display), new weapons and attachments, and most of the maps average out to be about three miles long without jets. The creators have finally made a better way to talk to your team, and the new jet game play makes the experience much more “on edge” with totally unexpected outcomes.
The creators modified the bullet drop so that it makes you actually have to count for it. I really like the new hit system detector because it is more accurate, and I like that the looks of the health bars have not changed.
Most of the maps are huge (the few small maps have no jets). I believe that “Metro” is the best map due to the intense combat that takes place at objective “B”. If you are a great sniper and you know the “spawns”, I suggest that you play Caspian Border. On the other hand, if you are a good engineer then I suggest that you play Metro. The Metro map is good for most classes except for the sniper.
Some of the new assault rifles are the M16A4, HK416/M416, FN2000/F2000, and the Steyr Aug. The snipers are the Type 88, M82, SKS, M39, and the M98B. The SMGs are the PP-2000, PDW-R, A-91, P90, and the MP7. The rocket launchers are the AT4, SA-18 IGLA, Javelin, SMAW, and lastly the RPG-7.
I believe that this latest release has come a long way from Battlefield 1, and both good and bad additions have been made. The good is the new game play and the bad are the new characters on campaign. Overall this new release is worth buying”.
Professor Randy says: Thank you Cody for that awesome review. You know your “stuff” buddy and all “gamers” should take your advice and give Battlefield 3 a look!
