hopefully, this is actually going to be quite fun, fast paced and intense .... good to see Battlefield 3 as a mixture of fast paced, intense action, large scale warfare.... people in the community have been playing it at PAX and are saying that they are REALLY enjoying that map and it's design..

Whilst I agree that, as far as consoles are concerned, this is probably welcome, I completely understand the outrage of die hard fans at this obvious catering for the console crowd of this traditionally pc game. It should be noted, I have both the 360 and PC version of the game.

A close quarters map pack is clearly catering for the COD crowd. It really shouldn't have a place in a sequel to Battlefield 2.

I thought that a lot of the die hard Battlefield 2 fans on PC were blowing things out of proportion with their skepticism but they were right. Battlefield 3 has been dumbed down a lot for the casuals what with the removal of Commander mode and now this.

Still, I'm sure this new map pack will be perfect on consoles and the player numbers.

Yeah, I don't like the small maps in Battlefield 3 at all. DICE seems to think that just because the statistics show Operation Metro as the most played map, that most Battlefield players want smaller maps. I think the biggest reason Metro is so popular is because it's good for stat-whoring and kill-whoring... and it's a nice change of pace from the normal map rotation. But a nice change of pace is completely different from a DLC map pack totally dedicated to small maps.

Unfortunately, as a big BF3 fan, I'll still wind up buying this DLC, solely for the new weapons. It's unfortunate that the new weapons come pre-attached with some maps that I probably won't ever play.

looks awesome! really like the color palette, looks like they borrowed a level from their other game, Mirror's Edge.

still hoping for a Dinosaur Survival DLC... more like praying.

Can't really say I'm excited for this at all. To me Battlefield has just always been about scale and epic large battles. A map composed of a single building just isn't what Battlefield should be, it's not like you can't have good infantry maps without opening them up more.

That's just me though, disappointed to see Battlefield heading in this direction. It's become about fast paced combat rather than tactics and teamwork.

Keep in mind there's gonna be the Armored Kill DLC which will have huge maps...the biggest in BF history - they say...
Actually Battlefield is heading both directions... from CQB to huge tank battles...

eak32296d ago

agreed. The same people whining and crying about this and what a fuck up company Dice is will be singing their praises when Armored Kill comes out. Just pass out some pacifiers to shut them up till AK comes out.

I don't like the looks of this. The guy just hold the sprint button ALA CoD style. Who ever get caught in the back lose. No tactics, battle line, or objective what so ever. Mindless running and gunning.

Also, looks like you can't just blow up and collapse the whole floor. The average Battfielder with a brain would just destroy the whole pent house rather than going into it and have a retarded shoot out with corner campers. A lot less destructible than other maps. Further encouraging running around going rambo. This in contrast with the mentaliy of just blowing the building up is rather digust inducing because they are changing into CoD.

I am just going to hold my tongue more about CoD, etc.

Instead of a building, they should've used trenches for close quarters combat. A wide area but the ability to navigate below and with sniper towers and bunkers with a good view up top. Would've been a better idea IMO.

TekoIie2296d ago

The last thing we need is more maps which support snipers over all other weapons...

srcBFMVBMTH2296d ago

My point was the trenches being the main part of the map. Sure, take out the sniper towers but you can't have trench warfare without bunkers :)

This is 1 of the 4 maps, you dont know what the other 3 will offer
