[Review] Gamescom 2011 - Battlefield 3

I played Battlefield 3 twice at Gamescom 2011, here's my story.

Before and after the opening

The first day we went really early to Gamescom so the booth of Battlefield 3 wasn't opened yet. We made the left picture you see above. 10 AM the Gamescom opened their doors for normal people without press card and 5 minutes after the booth was crowded as hell, as you can see in the right picture. To entertain all the people in the queue, some EA girls gave iPad 2s to play Monopoly. The problem was that you had to wait up to eight hours to play 20 minutes of Battlefield 3. Lucky as I am, I just had to wait 30 minutes.

First of all the twelve minutes long Fault Line trailer was shown, followed by an instruction video of the different classes and the conquest mode. After that we were able to play on 64 PCs the multiplayer map Caspian Border in Iraq, with jets, helicopters and a lot of tanks. In my opinion, the helicopters are a bit overpowered so far because soldiers on foot could be killed in seconds without greater aiming.

Jet Flying in Battlefield 3

JET FLYING was awesome. The epicness of all time. With speed and strength combined you had the feeling that the map wasn't limited and you would just fly over the world shooting people and helicopters. These could be taken down within seconds with the jets - without being unbalanced because against single soldiers the aiming was really tough.
Battlefield 3 will be released Octiber 27 for Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC.

I don't think it's good idea to stand somewhere, where helicopter can shoot you, so I don't see that as a problem.. just cover behind something and destroy it with rocket launcher.
