Summary: For PC plan on a 4 to 5 hour install. It takes forever to install from the Cds then it takes forever to run the updates. Then after it updates it takes forever to update some more. I can't tell you how the game is because i started install at 6 PM and now its 10:30PM and the current update is only at 5%. I gave it 2 stars because i am hopeful once its installed it will live up to the reviews but none of the reviews let me know it would take forever to install.

Summary: Paying for 5 map packs and base game, I only played it very rarely. The FPS and CPU were too slow for some reason for this game. The irony is that BF4 (with all it's problems) performs better than BF3 (with it's latest patch). I have a Lenovo Ideapad Y570 w/ Nvidia 555m graphic card.
Summary: As other people have said, you will unlock everything in this bundle eventually. It gives every class unlock, and for some classes like support, assault, or engineer, this isn't a huge help because it's much easier to get points with those classes compared to recon. It also gives some vehicle unlocks, which is okay, but I barley use vehicles. The only useful shortcut in this bundle is the recon shortcut, for me at least. I would not recommend this, it's a waste of money.
Summary: Well, this was a really disappointing game. I had heard a lot about BF3's realism, but I didn't find that at all. The 7 hour campaign length was also disappointing. There is a fairly large chunk of Dragon Lair-esque button prompt and response. That was pretty cool in 1983.
Summary: This thng sits really high but does not come with a wrist rest. I had to get one as you cant really use it without a wrist rest. Keys are Extremely loud. Sometime when I press a key it does not register. Other times it registers twice on a singly key press. Not impressed for the amount of money this thing costs. Finish is high gloss which atracts a lot of finger prints, smudges, and dust. I would not recommend this to a serious gamer.
Summary: ordered this keyboard to replace a logitech g15 because it was just time for a new keyboard and wow not what i expected, i thought i was not going to enjoy the orange letters or bold font on this keyboard but it may just be the nicest ive seen, it glows just awesome. this is the first mechanical keyboard i have used in several years so i was a little annoyed at first but after a bit i have to say im starting to kinda like it.
Summary: Firstly, this is NOT a gaming keyboard. Anyone who claims that it is a gaming keyboard is no doubt comparing it to one with rubber dome style switches (switches are the part of the keyboard that makes each key work). Almost all keyboards use rubber dome switches, which is the same type of switch your TV remote uses. This includes the expensive Logitechs.
Battlefield 3 - The future of pc gaming? God I hope Not!

Summary: What is best in life? EA: To crush small developers, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentation of their customers! This review was a long time coming, and I write now knowing the long term affect this game has had. For me Battlefield 3 is most likely the swan song for my days of PC gaming, and, in combination with the crushing disappointment of Mass Effect 3, may well be the beginning of the end for my days of gaming in general. Why?
Summary: So I waited nearly 9 months to buy this game, finally I would get to play a Battlefield game that has been balanced with patches. Well, thats what I tought. Reality is this is my worst battlefield expirience ever. First of all, it took me 3 days to actually get the game started. Since Origin is a worthless piece of junk, my account registeration failed 2 times in a row. I made an account, no error messages.
