Zero Punctuation Reviews: Battlefield 3

Video games have always taken heat for issues that aren’t remotely related to games or gaming culture. Once again we’ve been slammed, this time by William Bennett of CNN. I shouldn’t mind. I usually pay less attention to who say something hurtful to my face. But this constant barrage against gaming has begun to get old.

The Maximus IV Extreme was tested using the 2600K and a 4GB memory. Setting the multiplier at 46 and keeping the BaseCLK at 100MHz, a 4.6GHz is easily achieved with a stock speed of only 3.4GHz. It was clearly noticeable a big leap of 1.2GHz on top of its 3.4GHz stock frequency.

Nintendo’s Wii system offers a unique experience that really can’t be equated to any of the other systems. Technically it is inferior, but the motion controls Wii is based around can be so intuitive it offers a completely new way to game. This game system is extremely appealing to people who have never found video gaming appealing before. For veteran gamers, some may find it appealing and some may not. All will agree it’s a different sort of experience.

Combing tremendous sound with the story, chiefly voice acting, really adds the sense of real people doing and saying real things if the acting is good of course. Other sound effects like guns firing, doors opening and closing and any type of psychologically damaging auditory effects are all gold. The game, The Suffering, is a great example of sound effects that could be mind warping. Clive Barker’s Jericho and F.E.A.R are also top shelf examples.

This also includes The ROG bundle softwares, a 3DmarkVantage is a standard Curved Gaming Monitors benchmark design for Windows Vista and DirectX10. A Kaspersky anti virus is also provided to keep you safe from any malicious software programs.

But the real biggest bad part is the lack of customization. The way it worked up until now was that a game shipped with “X” number of maps or levels as they are called. After a few months of playing the same maps, smart and uber computer savvy folks use tools shipped with the game to make custom maps.

I will be screwed because I like big maps with lots of folks to shoot. I usually play as a sniper, so I need folks to be moving about for me to kill them from 200 or 300 yards away. On smaller maps with 8 or 10 players per team, sniping will be a boring and not very rewarding endeavor. Why should I drop almost $60.00 for a game that will no longer allow me to do what I so enjoy?

There might be a number of games that can be considered the best. It would depend on who you talk with and what type of game he likes. The best PC game for one might be something as simple as a word game while others might like something more complicated. It’s up to the player to decide which game is best for him.
