    Armored Kill is one of the best expansions I've ever played, for any game. It summarizes everything that makes Battlefield 3 such a unique and addictive experience and I would gladly recommend Armored Kill to everyone.

    Armored Kill brings some pretty fantastic maps to the BF3 universe. Those maps alone make this worth the price of admission. The addition of Tank Superiority and new vehicles only sweetens the deal. Armored Kill is certainly another well-placed notch in the BF3 belt.
  3. After several claustrophobic months of playing Close Quarters, Armored Kill is a relief. In Armored Kill you'll violently explore open fields, including the Bandar Desert, the largest Battlefield map ever. The Tank Superiority mode is an absolute blast too. [October 2012, p.78]

    Armored Kill simply has the best maps in the whole Battlefield series and offers different, intense and challenging combat.

    Armored Kill is a great DLC embedded with all the Battlefield charm. The console version of this expansion pack, anyway, is ruined by the lack of the true 64 players multiplayer mode, nerfed into less impressive 24 player battles. The huge maps of Armored Kill are simply too big for such a slim number of players.

    For Battlefield fans, this is an essential expansion.

    On consoles it's merely good, but with a full complement of 64 players this is the best, and biggest, that Battlefield has ever been.

    There is not enough content for this money. It would be better for Dice to make a map editor. Poor design of new maps. Nothing new in gameplay. I was expected to see massive tank battles, but there is standard action. Full Review »

    The real issue with the round of DLC is that console users will suffer with having enough team mates at all the right places in conquest and not feel like its a ghost town or that you are lone wolfing it. The gunship is a little to strong in rush and the re-spawn rate is just too fast, it should be not treated like any other vehicle that spawns on the map. besides that the lack of new weapons and the just the fact that the maps which are supposed to be pack full of tanks and what not is missing the IFV's and the jeeps makes it really not feel like a real armor battle at all but a cheaper bumper car version. how can you call it armored kill when there are almost no MB's present on any of the maps?
