    DICE have another winner on their hands with this DLC and if you're looking to spice up your Battlefield 3 experience and need something different, than Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand is a fast and affordable way to get your fix.

    Back to Karkand's maps are tried-and-true classics, and BF3's tech brings plenty of thunder. It's a bit on the expensive side, however.

    Return to Karkand it's worth every cent spent on it. Not just 4 maps, but also vehicles, weapons and and a new game mode. Definitevely fresh air for Battlefield 3.

    Four maps, ten weapons, three vehicles, a new gameplay mode... Maybe the contents in Back to Karkand are strictly obtained from Battlefield 2, but there are so many things to enjoy here that is hard not to recommend this DLC despite its lack of innovation.

    There are good reasons to revisit Karkand, not only for the wonders made by Frostbite 2, but mainly because it offers a different experience the maps of Battlefield 3.

    Back to Karkand has four maps of Battlefield 2 running with Frostbite 2, three vehicles, ten new weapons and another matchmaking mode. Enough for the frequent Battlefield 3 players, but too expensive: 15 euros for all this content.

    Back to Karkand is a good expansion on the existing foundation of Battlefield 3's multiplayer. In its essence, it doesn't do anything new, but why change something that's already pretty damn good?

    It's an amazingly well execution at reviving these classic maps that are rather legendary for the series, with very entertaining new weaponsIt's an amazingly well execution at reviving these classic maps that are rather legendary for the series, with very entertaining new weapons and vehicles to wreak havoc with. Assignments makes unlocking the new weapons a fun and entertaining task that brings new and interesting challenges to the table. The content was far better and more unique than I could have ever expected, and you are free to walk back to the original BF3 and show off your new toys and tags from Back to Karkand. Expand

    The new maps are great. The tall building on some of them make the game more interesting with place to hide from enemies. The assignments andThe new maps are great. The tall building on some of them make the game more interesting with place to hide from enemies. The assignments and new weapons are great additions to the progression of the game. My only beef is the F-35 seems overpowered. Its too easy to win a dog fight against the russian jets with the ability to hover, but its still lots of fun! Expand

    Vehicle warfare is fantastic in all of the new maps since they are pretty large for 24 players.
    Great DLC.
