Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand Review
By Steven Winslow |
Battlefield 3 is a first person war shooter developed by DICE. Battlefield 3 is third installment of the widely popular Battlefield series. Battlefield 3 brings a whole new life to the series with its new 3D engine and character modeling. The Back to Karkand expansion features four new maps to play on, more weapons to kill your enemy with and a more destructible environment. Also, the player has access to new vehicles not available in the standard game. Each game is set up as one team VS another. The basic concept of each game is to occupy and defend various flag points throughout the map. Each team starts with a certain number of reinforcements and by occupying these flags you force your opponent to lose reinforcements faster. When one teams reinforcement numbers reach zero then the game is over and they have lost. The shooting in Battlefield 3 is also extremely well done. Every gun has their own unique sound effects and feel when used. The team element is also a very large part of the gameplay in Battlefield 3. Players may choose between various kits depending on what kind of game they want to play. You may choose from the medic, the sniper, the infantryman and the engineer. Each kit has their own unique play style and brings something extra to the team. This is a truly fantastic war game.
