We Need 64 Player Maps, NO CAMPAIGN, & SP Bots
Battlefield 2 For PC was and remains one of the greatest shooters of all time. Each one since 2142 then has gone straight downhill, especially the console versions. They simply do not capture the epic feeling of a huge battlefield like in BF2 (or even 1942). The single player campaign was just a total waste of space in bf3, and on consoles multiplayer felt small and cramped on any map. Please make BF4 as great as BF2 was, with the option for 64 player battles that can last an hour + , and the commander option so each team has someone directing and making calls. it was so fun, and BF3 had such little replay value it is saddening. You can do it EA, make this one feel like a BATTLEFIELD Again!
Best FPS Out There!
In my opinion this as good as a FPS gets. Wide range of guns, huge maps and total destruction everywhere you go! I would highly recommend picking this up.
This is WORTH IT
I recommend this game. it comes with a hardened case the first map packs. That's what I was told. Best graphics, I'd say better than the Call of Duty series. But hurry, It's selling fast.
rock on battlefield
This game is going to be the next big thing. Every body is going to love this game, the best new multiplayer game.
Review from someone who owns the game
Noticed that most reviews are warning people, back in March. I pre-ordered the game and have been playing it since it came out, two days ago. I've played shooters for over 10 years and this blows SOCOM, Call of Duty, anything I've seen as far as shooters out of the water. The graphics are amazing. Aside from the amazing online game the campaign is very good also. This is one of the only games I've paid full price for and had NO regret whatsoever.
Recommend to everyone.
For one, I am a big fan of BF3 so there is no reason why I should not get this. But for those who are thinking if you want to get this, think about Frostbite 3. Yes, DICE's new graphics engine that supposedly supports only DirectX 11 on PC will be used on this game. Cinematics look so real already with Frostbite 2 so I can only imagine what a better engine would produce. And rumor has it that besides air and land battle, there will be naval as well like Submarines and such besides what BF3 already has - the raft with mounted LMGs.. Combine all that with their upgraded Destruction 4.0 destruction engine (For those who doesn't understand/not tech savvy, this is the technology they use to be able to "destroy" or "break" something you shoot as how it would shatter in real life. i.e: A small house gets leveled because you shot it with a tank 5 times.) and we will more than likely have one of the most massive destruction action on massive vehicular warfare. You just can't go wrong with Frostbite tech. They just keep getting better and better.
Loved it......but it could have been better.
This game is one of my favorites, but it had a few mistakes. For example, the story was just not that great. I forgot the characters name just after i finished it. There are also a few bugs here and there. The multiplayer is great though. FUN MAPS!!!! the the destruction of the maps is better than ever. Also many more vehicles were added. Such as the M-Rap. I do wish that EA would have delayed it a bit just to clean up a bit. Not just releasing what ever they had so far. With all that said, still a great game.
To start off, I could not believe how amazing the graphics are on an old generation console (Playstation 3). I was afraid when I ordered Battlefield 4 that the graphics would look horrible. After playing campaign/multiplayer, I was blown away. This is a huge improvement from Battlefield 3 and exceeded my expectations. I already know what your thinking. "Dude, c'mon! There aren't 64 player servers and there's no point playing conquest!" Actually, its not bad having only 24 players. Its balanced out by removing some checkpoints (A,B,C,D,E etc.) Now, on to pros and cons.
> Amazing graphics for an old generation console
>setup is easy
>Multiplayer is a lot of fun
>Multiplayer maps are interesting
>Guns in multiplayer have more attachments and look/sound more realistic
>Campaign is SOOOOO short (6 missions to be exact)
>A few glitches here and there in multiplayer
Overall, I would recommend this game to anyone who loves first-person shooters.
Excellent Imporvements, Few Glitches
Battlefield has continued to improve, and I think it is worth buying. I have read some reviews complaining about some of the same stuff including the glitches in graphics, the problems in the multiplayer, and a short/boring campaign. I have to disagree about the campaign. The campaign has good plot and is exciting to play. It keeps you engaged and interested in what happens next just like a serial keeps you hooked. As for the length, it was just a touch short. They probably could've extended the game by another 2 hours if they extended the end instead leaving everything so open-ended. Like always, guns in this game are as realistic as it gets, and that is a big plus for Battlefield every year. The way you shoot, the recoil, the size, the specs, all are more realistic than any game I ever played. In the campaign, there is some war in the sea (about 10 minutes driving a boat, shooting at people), but there is NONE in the air. I was hoping to fly a helicopter or jet, but no missions had it. We all know that flying is a big part of Battlefield, so why not put at least half an hour of campaign that involves flying? The real problem with the campaign were all the glitches. Your character can stay in stealth if you are hiding in certain areas, but your squad will go out in the middle of everything talking like they are at a concert without getting detected. The graphics will also get a little glitchy, probably because the game is optimized for Xbox One and PS4. It only happens a few times, so personally I just ignore it. The multiplayer on the other hand is SUPERB! Graphics, sound, maps, FUN!!! We all know Battlefield 3 had great graphics, these are even better! The texture, lighting, and detail has been enhanced. I have been playing online for quite a while now (about 15 hours) and I think it is even better than BF3, and definitely better than MW3 (Notice I did not say Call of Duty Ghosts considering I have not played it yet). Driving and flying the vehicles takes a little getting use to, but after a few hours you will get used it just like any game. Jet ski's are hard to control and once it gets close to shore, there is no getting the boat off the shore. They should make an option where you can push the boat into the water as long as it is realistic. Can't be pushing a huge fighter ship, that would be stupid. There are new game modes that follow the ideas that COD has. Obliteration is like demolition; defuse is like Search & Destroy; and we all know domination. Although I am more of a conquest kind of guy, these are good additions to people who would like to experience more from Battlefield. An awesome new feature is the ability to be a commander of the team, giving you cool abilities like assigning jobs to players and sending in airstrikes. The multiplayer has really gotten improved all around. Everything is destructible, except for rocks, which makes the game very action packed and can change the map greatly. You now have the addition of water warfare which has made the game that much more fun. There are some problems currently with the servers, but it is not as bad as what GTA went through. The problems with the multiplayer will quickly be updated and fixed, be patient. Overall, the multiplayer is addictive just how BF3 was and it will keep you hooked for a year or so.
Should you buy this game? Make sure you have at least 5GB free space (Just to be on the safe side), and you got to love big warfare with vehicles and realistic shooting (makes it harder than COD). Don't blatantly buy this game not knowing what you are getting and then trash talking it in a review. Hope you take this review into consideration, enjoy playing BF4!!!
Some extra things I noticed after playing a few more hours
-Unlike in BF3, you can now counter someone knifing you in certain situations.
-There are awesome maps where it is all water warfare and the whether changes halfway through making it difficult to drive and effects the shooting.
-Battlelog allows you to join servers, change loadouts, and check stats from your phone or laptop.
-You get points for any damage done to vehicles, no need to destroy it to get points.
-Parachuting looks more realistic
