This DLC really made my day, not only the good old maps, but also the radio placed on the roof on 1 of the buildings. A small tear dropped from my eye.
That's probably the biggest DLC available for Battlefield 3 I think. It adds some guns, 5 dogtags and old good maps which tend to have a feeling of difference between these maps and the usual BF3 maps (dusty weather).
Also few glorious vechicles are "brought back" to the game. Amazing!
Though... As the every DLC I review, the price isn't fair for the DLC. It has alot of content but its just nothing that much to pay 1/5 of the starting game price. Thats why the rating is so low. It should be maximum 6 or 5 $.

Back to Karkand provides 4 more fantastic maps from Battlefield 2. The maps has got great destruction model, and it's fun to play. You can get some new weapons, but they aren't that good. B2K is a great expansion for those who like big maps.

Back to Karkand DLC is a good DLC for Battlefield 3, because it adds some of the best maps coming from Battlefield 2. The maps have a good extension and they respect the gameplay style of Battlefield with large areas and the presence of many vehicles. The DlC adds also some weapons and a new gameplay mode that increase the variety of the game. The only defect of this pack is the high price

The addition to the popular shooter studio EA DICE, which recalls classic maps, weapons and vehicles from Battlefield 2 Arena of the production went to the history of the genre and have become benchmarks for other games. Now you can play them again in the new version - each item has been since restored and enhanced in technology Frostbite second
Nice (and necessary) addition to the core gameUltraGT | Feb. 12, 2012 | See all UltraGT's reviews »
There's been a lot of talk already about Battlefield 3. One of the main criticisms about it was the small scale and narrow design of most maps, like the dreadful Operation Metro, leaving only a few (Caspian Border, Firestorm,...) to maintain the true 'Battlefield' play-style.
Luckily, this DLC package fixes that: we get 4 BIG classic maps from BF2 and 1942, with lots of vehicular combat and many ways to approach the objective and flank the enemy. Wake Island is probably the weakest in that regard, but still enjoyable. Plus, we can unlock some new weapons (though a few seem a little unbalanced).
Overall it's a great map pack, with the only downside being the price. Paying almost 15€ for 4 maps and some weapons may be a little excessive. Of course, if you are a COD fan you may be used to it already.
