But on the other hand, the low number of players on consoles makes these maps look like a wasteland with nothing really interesting. With 24 players to take 5 objectives, you can run from flag to flag and you will most likely find no one on your way. Plus, the AC-130 is a joke. On Conquest it is easily destroyed by jets, stingers, AA guns, attack and even scout helicopters, making it almost useless or just a minor threat. On Rush it is always on the attack side, bombing around the base or near the charges, making the games slightly unbalanced.
The new vehicles are good but Tank Superiority is just a deathmatch with tanks and Javelins: if you're on foot or on the passenger side, you must be and engineer or you'll be completely useless. Luckily, the new maps are really beautiful and Alborz Mountains is one of the best maps I've ever seen in a BF game, but that's not enough to save this DLC from being a disappointment.… Full Review »

I haveMy this is an improvement over the last expansion pack, if you are a long-term BF fan then you shouldn't hesitate to purchase this. I have found all the maps enjoyable to a certain extent although the 'biggest map ever' was a bit overhyped by Dice. Alborz mountains has the potential to become a classic BF map and in my opinion it is the best BF3 map released to date.
However, I must criticise the new gametype of Tank superiority as it boring and the lack of variety in vehicles certainly harms the gametype as a whole, most of the vehicles aren't even tanks which makes the title slightly contradictory. It is also made boring because most people sit as far back as possible while they can still get kills, very few people actually get stuck in there with the objective which is something that has made BF fun for such a long time.
So overall, if you are a fan of the classic BF large scale warfare and carnage on big maps then you need to pick this one up, if you are more of a fan od the COD style and became interested in BF after the last DLC then ignore it and go back to COD, as I don't expect Dice to do many DLCs similar to CQ.… Full Review »
