Battlefield 3 DLC Armored Kill
Available on PC (Reviewed), PS3 & XBox 360
First off itís great that we get to see
more maps and more themes for Battlefield 3. Better yet those themes so
far have been coming with a few new weapons and tweaks to enhance the
game play and fun factor. Armored Kill brings vehicles more into the
mix. Not just with tanks, but a different vehicles to cause mayhem with
such as ATVís. Fast and maneuverable they are perfect to get you across
the battle field.
One of the first things
you are going to notice also about the new maps is they are absolutely
gorgeous. In the heat of battle it is too bad that you cannot take the
time to look around and enjoy the great detail the designers and artists
put into these maps.
Itís not just eye candy here since the maps do offer unique tactical
game play for soldiers on foot and in vehicles. The expansive maps are a
shot of freshness in the hectic online firefights, bringing vehicles
more into play and the arena to really push the potential of those
vehicles. Bandar Desert is a site to see and is truly a spectacular map.
The desert map is the
ultimate playground for tanks and the like. The map is big, I mean
really big. With Desert dunes, a smattering of villages, this offers so
much more in terms of tactical battles. Tanks can maneuver and use the
dunes and some cover to shield the lower parts of the tank while having
a good position to fire on an enemy.
On the flip side of that, if you spot the enemy in armor or other
vehicles, you have a bit more time to plan depending on how far out they
are and who spots who first. So far it has been a blast to play and
Armored Kill is another DLC that brings so much more to the Battlefield
The different maps
giving so many different feels and nuances, even some eerie areas like
Death Valleyís night time map. On the border between Iran and
Turkmenistan, bathed in darkness and moonlight itís just a strange
feeling map though not in a bad way. The landscape is such that there is
plenty of cover when you want to try to get on the move and not be
spotted by unfriendly aircraft.
Plus amongst some of the new toys there is the chance to sit at one of
the guns of an AC- 130 gunship, nice. All in all the maps offer a nice
diverse package with plenty of tactical possibilities. Now, on to
Battlefield 3 DLC Aftermath, working on it now, this franchise just
keeps getting better and better.
Have fun play games
