So, Battlefield 3 is pretty amazing, no? I'd say it pretty much ends any shot Rage had at holding the title of "best-looking PC game," although Rage has its own issues with texture detail that sully its excellent artwork and bursting-with-detail environments.
I'll admit to enjoying the single-player campaigns in games like BF3, and this one so far seems to be pretty engaging. My attempt to take a quick look at the game's graphics melted into several hours of intense gameplay last night. Of course, the single-player graphics are jaw-dropping and look like a true next-generation PC game—at last. The multiplayer beta just didn't show us everything that was possible with this game engine, we can now say for sure. At least, that's my take.
