Shoot. Shoot. Bang! That’s how I felt after watching the very lengthy trailer of Battlefield 3. Battlefield 3, which is produced by EA Digital Illusions CE, has finally made it’s way to the console. I never got to play it because I am not a active PC Game user. I don’t enjoy playing PC Games, their not my preference. I seen this on the game shelf when I was buying other games, but never really cared to look into it. But, I am happy to see it on the consoles and to see it as a FPS game(Because, I generally play FPS game) and I quickly check the trailer out. And boy, did I love what I was seeing…
The gameplay trailer is lengthy. It’s twelve minutes long. Yeah. Crazy, isn’t it? I was surprised to see a trailer this long. After viewing the trailer, I have to say….That this game looks like it’s going to be a blast to play with!
The game environment is awesome. The way they portray the world, the animators and level designers did a very good job to it. The bit that was shown look like the city was recently evacuated. And for a “Future” type of game(It’s not that far in the future) it feels like it’s a actual city. The graphics look phenomenal. I swear, I thought this was a real war and not just a game. I guess this is truly the new age of gaming, right? Every model looks real. The cars are on point. Buildings feel like it’s been in war times. Most games, feel to fakish to me with the environment. I’m glad that the level designers/modelers got this right.
The core of it, the gameplay. It’s done real good. I like how the soldiers gives out their commands or warnings every second. Not like other FPS games where they give commands out once or twice a mission. These guys talk from start to finish. That’s a nice touch to it. They move fluently(No problems there. We expect that by now). The hand to hand combat is great. Now, I don’t know if we will actually be using hand to hand combat or if it’s going to be a set animation. In the trailer, when you are trying to disable a bomb, one of your enemies comes in contact with you. And you see yourself fighting hand to hand with the guy. I hope it’s you and not a automatic sequence. Either way, thought, it’s a nice edition to the FPS genre. The weapons look good. We are only shown three different types of weapon with there own special quirks. I think you will find that one you will love(For me, it’s the assault rifle).
In conclusion, I think this game is gonna rock. It’s expected to be out in Fall of 2011. This game looks like it’s gonna pack a punch. You definitely want to be in the driver seat for this one.
