Great deal for a nice game.Jiubatha | June 14, 2013 | See all Jiubatha's reviews »
This bundle is an absolute steal. For everything you get with it, it is well worth the money (on sale especially).
Battlefield 3 is more than I expected it to be. I was slow on buying it, not sure if it was really worth it (being a little burned out on shooters). But I found a nice surprise. Amazing graphics, solid gameplay, responsive controls, and an overall good time. Single player is nice. It certainly has its 'wow' and dull moments, but its not worth the price tag alone. Multiplayer is where this game shines. Plenty of active servers and players, cool maps, vehicles and weapons. Destructibility is nice, but I did notice that it was toned down compared to Bad Company 2. Its certainly a fun time, and bringing some friends into mix will certainly keep you playing until the next battlefield.
Has What You Need To Enjoy The Gamethegaminglyfe | June 11, 2013 | See all thegaminglyfe's reviews »
Battlefield 3's Multiplayer was pretty limited on its own and it felt like the advantage was to the people who bought the DLC. But with this you have the full game and the DLC so your Battlefield 3 experience is the best it can be. The game still has it's problems in the other game modes that the DLC can't fix but what this DLC can fix is the multiplayer. If you want Battlefield 3, get this edition.

Battlefield 3 Premium Edition comes with the base game and all 5 DLC expansions. Combined together these DLCs more than double the amount of multiplayer content. Not only that but each DLCs also have their own theme for some unique map designs and modes that you wouldn't find in the original game.
All this adds up to a great multiplayer experience. It may not be revolutionary, we are talking about another modern military shooter after all, but the larger maps and vehicular combat still makes the Battlefield multiplayer distinctive enough from other shooters out there.
The single player campaign however is entirely forgettable. Short, boring, frustrating in spots and quite buggy. It seems that Dice chose to focus its attention exclusively on the multiplayer for its patches leaving the single player in the same sorry state it was at launch. It is worth nothing that before BF3 and the Bad Company games the Battlefield games didn't even have a proper single player mode to begin with and thus most people are coming to it for the multiplayer alone.
If this is the case for you then don't be afraid to jump in. If you are interested only in the single player campaign however i would advised against buying this game.
Best Battlefield 3 Experienceonewinged90 | June 6, 2013 | See all onewinged90's reviews »
The premium includes ALL the expansions of Battlefield 3 with much lower price. There are a lot of maps and game mode available to the game where you will invest hundreds of hours into it. Play with four classes available with tonnes of weapins to choose! As a warning this game uses EA's Origin client, but so far it is a pleasant experience. Recommended.
Maybe...the best war game of all.kalil | June 6, 2013 | See all kalil's reviews »
A game that understands well the concept of the "Art of War". The real war involves strategy and cooperation, and in this game is difficult to succeed if you ignore them. Teamwork is essential, individualism does not have much place in this game. Here is the purpose of the various soldier classes (medic, engineer, support and recognition), with their special abilities. The scenarios are generally large, detailed, and offer some destruction in the environment. The amount of weapons is great, and their designs are perfect. The sound is beautiful. But best of all, since their large maps (almost all) would not be the same without them-are military vehicles (tanks, cars, quads, helicopters, planes, amphibians, boats, and motorcycles, forthcoming). It has several game modes to suit all tastes: the frantic action if you prefer the classic team deathmatch, the squad deathmatch (although the latter is not won without a squad to work together), the conquest domination of close quarters, the gun master, and scavenger, then there are ways that require some more tactics and strategy: the usual rush, the rush squad, the Normal conquest, the conquest attack, and the tank superiority (the latter is war tanks). In summary, the most comprehensive war game exists, it has almost everything.
