Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand
1 January 2012
Excerpt: The eagerly anticipated Back to Karkand DLC for Battlefield 3 has arrived for the PS3 (reviewed), PC and XBox 360 that not only pays homage to the classic Battlefield 2 maps but cements this version as the definitive one. With four new maps a plethora of new weapons, vehicles and some truly enjoyable online gaming modes (e.g. Team Deathmatch, Assignments & Conquest Assault), Back to Karkand is a must have DLC for Battlefield 3.
Conclusion: A nice diversion that breathes new life into an older title, certainly worth the $15 asking price for those still playing regularly. It is a shame they didn't at least dabble with taking the levels out of the jungle and into the city though.
Excerpt: It's no secret that EA wants its own Modern Warfare, but in recent years the mega publisher has struggled to put together a game that can shift units in numbers even approaching what Activision's series has. In DICE, the Swedish studio behind the Battlefield series, EA has a development team more than up to the job, and its latest effort, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, is without a doubt the best modern combat FPS the publisher has ever produced.
Conclusion: Ultimately, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is one of the best FPS titles currently available. Single-player might not be exceptionally heavyweight, but it manages to mostly push all the right buttons. It's multiplayer where the real substance lies though and it's there that you'll find that BF:BC2 offers real long term gameplay that's both satisfying and infinitely entertaining. And that's really Bad Company 2 in an artillery shell.
Conclusion: Some minor grievances aside, NHL 11 offers some major improvements over its predecessors. The meat and potatoes of any game is its gameplay and this is where NHL 11 shines. The game looks and plays more realistic and checking has become a real challenge. Breaking through the defense takes practice and finally putting the puck in the net is overwhelmingly gratifying.
Pros: The most authentic gameplay I have ever seen in a sports-sim.
Cons: A few minor issues, overall no major downsides.
Excerpt: It’s fair to say that that my PS3 and Battlefield: Bad Company 2 disc are very well acquainted by now, having spent the better part of three months together. No other game has provided me with such ample amounts of entertainment so far this year, and, as a result, an inhumane number of hours of my insignificant existence have been poured into painstakingly upgrading my online ranking. I also like to think I’m a proficient player, and am very proud of my dedication.
Conclusion: For the price of some very good standalone PSN games, you can purchase a separate mode that is fun in it's own right. What ultimately detracts from Onslaught is its disconnect the proper multiplayer. Knowing this, any fan of the game should consider it.
Excerpt: Since the beginning with Battlefield 1942 , DICE's Battlefield series has been hugely influential of all other multiplayer shooters. Over the years, the series' focus on large-scale battles has dwarfed the competition, taking the core concepts of games like Tribes and making them work with a more realistic military backbone. For years, DICE focused on this concept, bringing game after game to PC, something that changed with the release of Battlefield: Bad Company.
