    Close Quarter is a wonderful addition to the BF3 DLC family. It brings a new aspect to the BF3 model and it provides a more fast-paced, high-sensation experience. Like I said at the beginning, snipers need not apply.

    Close Quarters is an extremely well-made expansion that contains a lot of entertaining battles, and the new maps have lots of great qualities. But it's hard to shake the feeling that DICE has been looking a little too much at Call of Duty.
  3. In the second map pack of Battlefield 3, DICE clearly takes a cue from Call of Duty's signature gameplay by dumping the more open, sprawling battlefields the franchise is known for in favour of smaller, more intimate maps. [July 2012, p.93]
  4. The increased frequency of kills, assists, neutrals and captures certainly act like metabolic steroids for your rank, feeding you XP like it's going out of fashion, and for some players that'll be enough to warrant Close Quarters' existence.

    Battlefield 3 does a good impression of Call Of Duty, but this isn't an expansion that plays to the series' strengths or offers much value for money.

    Close Quarters may not be true to the Battlefield map style, but certainly feel like they are supposed to be in this game world. Although a little dissapionting as a DLC, they are fun. For the most part. Be prepared to die alot and kill alot. Full Review »

    I gotta say that CQ feel isn't the pure Battlefield style and moves a little to the edge of a CoD formula. But it does surprisingly good to maintain a better height and gets a nice tone that is fun. Even though , getting shot without rest is very annoying . Full Review »

    Make no mistake.. there in no better online shooter than Battlefield... with more than 450 hours on BF 3, running around like headless chickens is what Close Quaters feels like to me... it has a COD feel to it... to me Battlefield is about Epic Maps... I cant wait for the next expansion pack, where I feel is where Battlefield belongs Full Review »
