GamingLives takes a look at the Battlefield 3 expansions Aftermath and Armored Kill.
"When Battlefield 3 was first released it provided players with an atmospheric and detailed theatre of war with the high quality you would expect from the series. One of its strongest selling points was the vehicular combat, large open maps and the extra layer of strategy that this combination brings to the table. It came as little surprise then, that one of Battlefield’s expansion packs would focus on expanding an already diverse complement of vehicles and providing even bigger maps for budding soldiers of war to exert some strategic flair over large open terrain. At least, that would be the plan if you could get enough competent people to form something resembling a team, which unfortunately isn’t the only problem with this ambitious extension into open warfare, because for every smart and intuitive new feature, there will be someone or something that tarnishes its impact."
