    yup ive got both this and mw3 and prefer this, less kids running round, less lag, better maps (even think the graphics are better) id describe it not as arcade like if you know what I mean (you have to think a bit more)

    I gave MW3 a miss this time round and got battlefield instead. Hardcore squad deathmatch for me. Cant compare the 2 but as above, no kids, and after the first day of launch it hasn't dropped out once.

    I have it, its awesome, I prefer the realism of Battlefield to MW. Stand behind a sheet flapping in the wind and have someone fire a rocket at you on MW, your still standing there laughing as the sheet stops the rocket. On battlefield stand behind a wall and all of a sudden the wall is no more as the rocket has blown it up ! that with bullet drop and travel so you actually have to lead targets etc, controlling vehicles and the best bit, actually being rewarded for doing things which help your team (reviving fallen comrades, dropping health packs/ammo and 'spotting' enemies) all adds to a much more fullfilling experience for me

    MW is cracking single player though, although i havent tried MW3 yet.

    Best way I can describe the difference is as follows

    Battlefield 3 = War simulator. Very strategic, very accurate and involves vehicles.

    Modern Warfare 3 = Arcade shoot em up. Just a bit of manic arcade fun.

    Personally I like to spend my evenings in my living room playing arcade game type fun. Not spend my evening in Basra hiding behind a brick wall frightened to move and pinned down by a sniper for 30 minutes.

    Modern Warfare 3 for me

    Hey.. In Battlefield 3 and from the spawning ground I ran from bush to wall to car to wall to bush to car to wall to bush to car... just to get to the fight.

    Then got shot in milliseconds as soon as I even saw the enemy. Sometimes I dont even see ANYONE and get shot.

    I've crawled along the ground and got shot

    I've driven tanks through walls right up to the enemy and got shot

    I've camped and got shot

    So somewhere along the lines I need to get more training or understand what the hells going on

    Vehicle : Audi Q7

    Trim : S-Line Plus 245

    Engine : 3.0 TDV6

    Year : 2013

    Mileage : 3023

    Operation Flashpoint Red River = War Simulator Very strategic, very accurate and involves vehicles. One shot will KILL

    Battlefield 3 = Hyped as a War simulator, yet kills with sniper rifles can take 2 or more shots to kill

    Modern Warfare 3 = Arcade shoot em up. Just a bit of manic arcade fun.


    As for Campaigns (There's more to a game than multiplayer)

    Operation Flashpoint - Superb single player, placing you in multiple scenarios, good AI, drop in drop out co-op, one shot will kill!

    BF3 - Short, linear campaign, full of Quick Time Events and boring skill sapping button press sequences, AI are beyond stupid and the gameplay is glitchy, Hardest mode is no match for CoD's Veteran, when in vehicles in campaign you're just literally along for the ride and requested to press a button when instructed to do so by an onscreen prompt,
    co-op is ok (if you know someone else who has the game), but its not drop in drop out, Destruction 2.0 is underwhelming! Battlelog, hyped as being better than CoD Elite, in reality, its more useful to EA as a marketing tool than as a feature of the game. BF3's sound is superb when listened to in 5.1 or 7.1

    MW3 - Superb Campaign, putting you in multiple scenarios across multiple countries, You have full control over equipment such as AC-130's weapons. more freedom to do what you want than in BF3 (as BF3 holds your hand), AI are better educated no co-op except for Spec ops which is superb, CoD ELite, service overwhelmed by subscribers due to its wealth of features and 20 Items of DLC included. MW3's sound is the clearest of all CoD games so far..

    I can't get it to run on the PC, everything updated, everything looks ok, but when it switches from browser to the game it crashes at the EA logo with no error. Spent the whole weekend trying to fix, and EA support is non existent, as are the forums, full of better than thou haters, so I'm waiting for the 1st patch before it is downgraded to drinks coaster.
    Oddly, everything else on my system runs without issue, and this game gave me my first BSOD in 11 years, so I would be cautious in getting it for the PC.

    It was the same with me when I first got it, i played it too much like MW then realised... this is a totally different and somehow I changed how I played... hard to explain.

    But I kept on at it and you do get better and become more 'wise' to it shall I say.

    Overall though, I love the game and prefer it to MW.


    Which brings me onto the next point.... anyone have this for PS3?
