I think the two RPG guys standing there waiting to get shot tells us much about the AI and the style of gameplay in general. In the campaign of BC2 the rocket guys just slowly climbed up the roof, took a shot and stood there waiting to die. I was kind of hoping for more but I guess you can't ask for too much.

If you want good but short SP...buy whatever the latest CoD version is out that month.
If you want killer MP...BF3 looks to be it.

SP in BFBC2 was nothing more than a trainer for the MP...an enjoyable if tedious at times trainer. I expect nothing more from BF3 than that.

Crap, I guess I may be cancelling my BF3 order then, I never play MP games, so if BF3 has a crappy SP game, well...

Uhhhh Have you ever seen a Battlefield game before? Of course it's MP focused, altough single player looks alot more promising than the Bad Company 2 singleplayer. After all it was their first venture into an actual campaign.

Nope, never seen a BF game before, I've always play the COD series, although they've gotten worse over the years. That's why I decided to try out BF3, I just didn't know it was mainly an MP game.

I do not like a campaign in a BF game. I want to play with stuff against the AI similar to how I would in a multi match. it gives me a chance to practice/play with vehicles and weapons before going online... or just play offline when my inet is crapping out or I am away from an inet connection or whatever.

BF3 Vanilla looks good and all, but the main reason I'm excited is because of the mods. I'm hoping for another Project Reality mod (beats vanilla anyday).

I have not played BF in MP since BF Vietnam. I have always found the netcode to be very laggy and choppy. Have the smoothed out the MP since those?
