Apr 1, 2013With End Game, DICE put an end to the Battlefield 3 chapter. Thankfully they ended with a bang. End Game offers yet four new great maps and the best vehicle Battefield 3 had so far: the dirtbike. Capture the Flag is also back, and together with Air Superiority you get some great new modes. With only minor issues, DICE can look back at a great series of DLC for a great game.

The return of the game mode Capture the Flag, pre-existing in the series, and the introduction of the brand new Air Supremacy, they add so much fun healthy and renew the gameplay thanks to the addition of new vehicles such as jeeps AA and motocross motorcycles Only the challenges of hunting planes can be unbalanced for beginners, while the rest excels without any problems. He could not close in the best way possible the work of the Swedish team, enticing even more players to engage in the theaters of battle of their Battlefield 3 with related expansions! http://www.4news.it/14078-recensione-end-game-dlc-di-battlefield-3.php… Full Review »
Mar 13, 2013Excellent DLC. The new maps are well designed, Capture the Flag is great fun and it's an excellent addition to the overall BattlefieldExcellent DLC. The new maps are well designed, Capture the Flag is great fun and it's an excellent addition to the overall Battlefield experience. The real surprise is Air Superiority. I'm a total pilot noob, and thought one round of getting shot down a lot would be enough, but the massive dog fights and frantic action are really addictive. Minor quibble that a couple of the maps look a bit poor on X360, other than that bang on… Full Review »
May 6, 2013First off, this is a good game. That said, it was a step down from BC 2 if you ask me. The maps aren't as good or as varied, and the mechanicsFirst off, this is a good game. That said, it was a step down from BC 2 if you ask me. The maps aren't as good or as varied, and the mechanics have been dumbed down (no more c4 on atv's, collapsing buildings and etcetera). Then there are a lot of things people complained about in past BF/COD games that still have not been fixed, such as knifes going through people without killing them, inconsistent bullet damage, imbalanced matchups between higher level players and "noobs" with no competitive weaponry...the list goes on. They nerfed the medics ability to camp a medkit, but still allow engineers to repair tanks and helicopters mid combat...makes no sense. I left COD for BC2 because it looked like this series was going in the right direction, but they seem to have let success go to their head and are no longer thinking innovatively. I hope B4 dares to venture into the world of realism (if not a cover system, at least fix it so that LMG's do more damage than assault rifles- they are already handicapped by poor accuracy). For the record, I said many of these same things as they apply to COD, and the community there told me "we don't want realism or balance". I dunno, maybe this is the trend and I'm just too old.
Other advice for making it better (should the developer actually be one to check out reviews like these).
- Game lobby option requiring all incoming players have a microphone and are In game chat.
- Faster weapon/gear unlocks.
- Bring back the ability to collapse buildings; I know a lot of campers complained about this, but what is so wrong with people being able to counter window campers??
- Flight controls are horrible. Apache in BC 2 was off the hook. Why did this not return? New choppers are terrible, and don't get me started on the jets.
- Hacking is out of control. If you can't control it, get rid of rent a server and go back to client side servers.
- Rent a server its-self is a neat idea, but why are we forced to play only in these games? BC2 games were much more balanced and fair; you get in these "custom" games where the host has a full party of friends who know the map well, and one squad dominates the entire map.… Full Review »
