Here's the list of scores so far:

  • Joystiq 4.5/5: "It's not revolutionary, but it's the best Battlefield game, and that's saying a lot."
  • GameTrailers 9.2/10: "A stellar multiplayer suite with practically limitless replay value and a mostly forgettable campaign."
  • 1UP A-: "The single-player and co-op campaigns both have their issues, but the multiplayer component is worth the price of entry alone."
  • GameSpy 5/5: "There's simply no other shooter that lets you wage war on a scale this huge, but even better is the infinite number of satisfying ways to lay the hurt down on your opponents."
  • 9.2/10: "This is war. This is what we FPS fans have longed for for years."
  • BigPond Gamearena: 9.5/10 "If it's the best multiplayer game in the world that you're after, get your affairs in order. You're re-enlisting soldier."
  • Game Informer 9.5/10: "The only downside to Battlefield 3 is the lack of substantial changes to the multiplayer formula. However, that shouldn't stop longtime fans and newcomers from enjoying one of the best FPS experiences in gaming."
  • IGN 9/10: "Regardless of the narrative missteps or the occasional glitches, Battlefield 3 offers an unforgettable, world-class multiplayer suite that's sure to excite shooter fans."
  • AusGamers 9.8/10: "A game that's finally worth upgrading for and I dare say it carries with it a potential for a renaissance of the PC first person shooter."
  • SpazioGames 93: "The true strength of DICE's new title is its multiplayer component: massive battles, vehicles, destruction and an exceptional overall polish of Frostbite 2 offer an incredible piece of entertainment and raise the bar for online competition."
