Battlefield 3 is a fast paced first-person shooter developed by Electronic Arts Digital Illusions CE and has been published by EA, or Electronic Arts. Battlefield 3 is a sequel to Battlefield 2 which released in 2005. The game uses the latest Frostbite 2 game engine for rendering the graphics and the in-game physics. Battlefield 3 uses EA’s Origin software to authenticate when you connect the game to the internet.
In the game’s campaign mode, which involves the Single Player missions, you can take on the role of several military personas ranging from a Weapons system officer, M1A2 Abrams tank operator, Force Recon Marine to a GRU Spetsnaz operative. The locations for the missions also vary in demographics, ranging from Iran to New York City. The game features fighter jets that can be used in gameplay, adding more energy into the game.
The game kicks off in the year 2014 with Staff Sergeant Blackburn being interrogated. Since the missions being played are in effect, flashbacks of the sergeant, they do not play out in any chronological order. In the campaign mode however, the events start off near the Iraq and Iran border. Here, the United States Marines are fighting the People’s Liberation and Resistance army. There are even missions that are set in Paris, and other European and US destinations.
The Multiplayer Mode in Battlefield 3 sees players take on the roles of Assault, Support, Engineer or Recon operatives. The Assault operatives focus on assault rifles and healing their teammates. Support class operatives focus on Light Machine Guns and Supplying Ammunition to their teammates. The Engineers focus on supporting, maintaining and destroying vehicles. Recon Class operatives mainly Snipe and spot enemies for the rest of the team.
Realism is key in Battlefield 3, as the game mechanics reflect. Using the new game engine, it has been made possible to use Bipods with compatible weapons like Sniper rifles. The use of a Bipod is optional, though it is highly recommended as it fully utilizes the Frostbite 2 game engine to add realism to the firing mechanism. It greatly improves accuracy while cutting down on recoil when the bipod is used as compared to without it. Laying down suppressive fire reduces the visibility of the player due to vision blur effect and this greatly affects accuracy.
The Frostbite 2 game engine is a highly advanced algorithm that can realistically portray the destruction of buildings and the environment to a much higher level than the previous versions. The new engine also has the capability to support dense urban areas and highly detailed graphics and animations. The Battlefield 3 PC game received a PEGI rating of 16 for scenes and gameplay involving military grade violence and destruction. Hardcore gamers will love the multiplayer aspect of the game as much as the highly engaging Single Player campaign.
