1. An Impressive Campaign
Battlefield is the head-to-head competitor with Activision’s Call of Duty and EA strives to develop the better FPS. Call of Duty: Black Ops II had an impressive single player campaign, which is unheard when a game’s major selling point is its multiplayer. Battlefield 3, released in 2011, had an awful single player experience. Even EA executive Frank Gibeau said that the campaign’s main purpose to help players train for its multiplayer. Hopefully, DICE will follow in Treyarch’s footsteps and develop an interesting campaign for Battlefield 4.
2. Real Destruction
The destruction in Battlefield 3 is inferior when compared to Battlefield: Bad Company 2. Sure, you can blow walls down but that’s nothing compared to taking down an entire building while half a dozen men are holed up inside. You won’t see any like this in Battlefield 3.
3. Battle Recording
Most of your Battlefield 3 matches will be epic and memorable and after you play them, you’re probably think to yourself, “Wow. I wish I could just watch the match and bask in the awesome.” Halo and Call of Duty allow players to record their matches and upload them, but neither of those games have cooler moments than Battlefield 3. Whether it’s ejecting out of your jet to snipe the pilot chasing you and enter his jet in mid-air, driving a C4-charged jeep into your opponents’ base, dropping a grenade right before you die after arming an MCOM station, you name it. It would all be epic to record and share with your friends.
4. Kill Rent-A-Server
Battlefield 3′s Rent-A-Server feature allows players to host their own private servers and make the rules. You can rent a server for one day ($1.49 USD) or for 90 days ($59.99 USD). You’ll find early on that some admins aren’t fair players and will likely kick you if you get the upper hand. The topic on limiting admin permissions have been discussed among the Battlefield community since the game’s release in 2011.
Another upside to get rid of Rent-A-Server would be allowing newbies to learn how to fly jets and choppers. There are no tutorials in the campaign and more experienced players get upset when a noob crashes a chopper full of trigger happy soldiers because he has no idea how to rotate.
