Last night, I spent a half hour getting my butt handed to me playing the Battlefield 3 Open Beta. Let me tell you it was absolutely fantastic! This game is a marvel. Now, I certainly can’t tell you everything by only playing in two missions, but what I can tell you is that Battlefield 3 – Limited Edition is the most beautiful video game I have ever seen. Maybe, beautiful isn’t the right word. I’m am discussing a war zone with torn up streets and people shooting at you.
I was standing in front of this huge hole in the ground, as I was looking around and it dawned on me that depending on where I stood, the sun looked different. Not just different, but realistic.
The Beta is opened from now (actually started September 29) until Monday, October 10th. I had already pre-ordered my copy of Battlefield 3, but playing just the Metro map on rush has convinced me that I did the right thing. I can’t wait for October 25th to play the full version.
