Close Quarters good?

Fatbubba | Aug. 13, 2012 | Review of Battlefield 3: Close Quarters

Whether you'll like Close Quarters depends on what you are looking for.

Are you just looking for new maps to play the good old Battlefield gameplay on? Then look away, as Close Quarters does not offer the traditional modes on these new maps.

Instead you get Gun Master and Conquest Domination. The first is basically a race of killing others with a large variety of mandatory weapons till you get to the last kill which has to be done by knife as seen in the Counter-Strike series. Conquest Domination takes some hints from the traditional conquest modes, but falls short by limiting your spawn options and the small scale of the new maps. In total it just doesn't feel like Battlefield, and does not appeal to me in the way that the original modes and maps do.

It's too bad because the maps do look really good. If only they were bigger. Maybe the next DLC, Armored Kill will give me what I'm looking for as long as they give me the traditional modes besides the newly announced King of the Hill mode.
