One good reason you're NOT playing battlefield?!?!
Battlefield is the most interactive, realistic, massive FPS ever made and continues to improve with the new BF$ coming out. COD is like candy land and BF4 is chess times 10!........... Vehicles, massive maps, destructible environments. WOW! play it once and guaranteed you will be hooked...
What is going on? Its a great game!
I don't understand why this game has such a low overall rating. Sure there were some early-on glitches and problems (most of which have been patched by DICE), but what major online multiplier game hasn't had a problem on launch day with its servers? Battlefield 4 has a decent single player although its pretty short, but c'mon, who really buys a battlefield or cod game for it's single player campaign? Ok multiplayer. It's multiplayer has to be the best of any fps I've ever played and i honestly haven't really experienced many glitches or bugs playing on 360. There aren't that many maps right now, but there is dlc. The thing is, every time you play, even on the same map, its an entirely different situation and it never gets old due to incredible levoloution and destructible environment. I know there are mixed feelings about all of the vehicles in multiplayer, but personally I love getting in an attack helicopter and wreaking havoc on the enemy team. Its not to the point where its impossible or annoying trying to play on foot because of the vehicles either (there are plenty of ways to take down tanks and helicopters that aren't that hard). Not to mention that there are A LOT of guns and unlockable attachments. It also has seven great game types that are all really fun. If you're on the fence between getting either cod: ghosts or bf 4, the choice is clear: you can't go wrong with battlefield 4. I own both and find myself spending most of my time on battlefield, and I hope this game gets recognition for being an incredible fps that it deserves.
Blows away COD Ghosts
I bought Ghosts first, as I have been a fan of that series, but honestly, it was pretty boring after only a few weeks. The online play is just run around like a fool, twitch shoot, and act like a fool on your headset.....really.
I was strongly recommended to give Battlefield a try, and I'm so glad I did. The campaign was ok, but honestly, campaigns are just the opening act for multiplayer anyways. The multiplayer is outstanding! You actually have to think, and use strategy, not just run around at a full sprint spraying bullets. It was a wonderful change from the tired COD gameplay. The maps are excellent, with a lot of variety and things to do. The spawn system makes COD look really bad, you choose spawn spots that your team has earned....super smart design
This game looks great, sounds great, and most importantly, is really, really fun. I would have given it a 10 except all the freeze-up bugs haven't been fixed yet....but that is easy to forgive.
I'm glad I traded in Ghosts for this game.
I got this game not knowing what to expect, because the last Battlefield I owned was Battlefield 2 and I couldn't play multiplayer because i was under 13 and couldn't make an EA account and once i turned thirteen was uninterested in battlefield because Halo 3 had come out. The games landscapes look really good from a distance but once you get up close everything looks pretty grainy, the graphics remind me of Halo: Reach, they look good but not great. plus when you first join all the textures still need to generate and the vehicle sounds don't turn on for a few seconds but once everything loads it looks pretty nice. You will never forget the first time you are in a building and the wall gets blown in by a tank, everything shakes appropriately and the explosions sound really nice. In honesty I think Ghosts has better graphics but this has much better gameplay and destructibility and you can drive tanks, humvees, and jets. All in all, yes it can be glitchy and has some graphical issues but it is playable and very fun.
I really enjoyed watching trailers and gameplays and i was so exited to get it that I couldnt wait to get it for my xbox 360 slim that by the way didnt had any hard driver only flash memories but so far so good until i got bf4 i was so exited i had 2 gb free on my console nd on one of my flas memories but then when i looked that couldnt anly download that obligatory download on the hard drive i was so angry i t started looking and i realised i wasnt de only one angry because why should it can be only be downloadable to the hard drive that is just dumb to make that cause there are many people who dont have hard drives and having that "rule" it is just not fair now i had to buy a freaking hard drive that are ecen more expensive than the game and just for that game i will have to spend from 100 to 150 doloras which is not fair so i recomend them to stop doing that and let us download in a flash memory! and now i will have to wait till I get a hard drive
Once again, dissapointed.
This game is not for casual players. Period. Kill trades, 1-3 bullet hit deaths, No physics on small objects (petty I know, but it still matters), unfinished animations on some levels, Poor balance on weapons, No true level destruction and use of the environment to use against your enemies (like in BF3, where you could drop building debris on your enemies), pointless level effects that prevent you from seeing the enemy, dimmed glints on 7x scopes and up making it difficult to see the snipers before they shoot you, slow or no registry of enemies shooting with no suppressor on the mini map, and finally and worse of all, The Network for this game is absolutely Dreadful, Terrible, and Pathetic. They clearly didn't learn from there mistakes from Battlefield 3, it's better than 4 at the moment in my eyes. Don't get this unless you really want to rage and have unfair gameplay in multiplayer. I played this franchise from Bad Company 2, I'm disappointed. Once again, Beautiful sound and graphics, but lack of great gameplay.
A great game
This game is fun! sure there are some huge problems like my Xbox, freezing in the middle of the game. the major problem though is that the graphics are still/look like they are in beta, which they are the same as when I played the multiplayer beta for the game a few months before release. But at it's core of gameplay it's a ton of fun, the new levolution is great but it is the primary reason for the crashes: but the first time you parachute from a falling building and looking back at the wreckage, it's totally worth it. It's a fresh breath from COD's run and gun style. I'd say if you still haven't bought it you should give it a try, it does multiple things better than BF3.
The single player campaign is intense and very great. The play of the game is very fun I enjoyed it alot, lots of fun! Good choice if weapons and everything else. Graphics are awesome and the sound is reasonable. It lasts a good length and makes you beg to replay missions. The bad news however is the multiplayer, as it needs alot of fixing. But I had a blast! If you like a good single player campaign, your good for it! Even though the multiplayer is hazardous.
Great Game, a Few Glitches
Battlefield has gotten even better than before, and I think it is worth buying. I have read some reviews complaining about some of the same stuff, including the storage space needed, the glitches, the problems in multiplayer, and a poor campaign. I have to disagree about the campaign, at least for the beginning of it. It starts off really well and has a good plot, but the ending is a bit of a disappointment. I was upset by how short it was; only took about 5 hours on the hardest level. Guns in this game are very realistic, and that is a big plus for battlefield. While there is some war in the sea, there is none in the air. I was hoping to drive a helicopter or jet, but no missions had it. The big problem with the campaign were all these 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. The multiplayer on the other hand is SUPERB! Graphics, sound, maps, FUN!!! I have been playing online for quite a while now (about 7 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 the vehicles takes a little getting use to, but after a few hours you will get used it just like any game. There are new game modes and also an option to be commander of the team which gives you cool abilities like assigning jobs to players and sending in airstrikes. The multiplayer has really gotten improved. Everything is destructible, except for rocks, which makes the game very action packed. Overall, the multiplayer is addictive just how BF3 was.
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!!!
Awesome game with HORRIBLE servers.
Allow me to preface this by saying that the campaign is awesome, I really enjoyed the characters and the online multiplayer was FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC until about 2 months ago, that was when I started having scipting and freezing issues. I know it isn't my console because I can drop out of a game with texture mapping issues and join a new lobby/server and it will be fine for a few matches. DICE needs to update their servers. The Batllelog and BF4 forums are full of people having the same issue that almost had me trading this in for BF3. Certain maps freeze midgame without warning, on all game modes, servers freeze up while loading new maps, forcing you to restart your game and the texture mapping goes all LSD/Alice in Wonderland for no apparent reason (this eventually turns into a game freeze, but I never stick around long enough to come to that.) There are some work arounds for this, but again, it is a SERVER issue and not a CONSOLE issue so deleting updates, clearing system caches and redownloading DLC can only do so much. Again, AWESOME game, with some very annoying, easily fixed issues. Maybe a result of being rushed to market for holiday 2013? If they can't fix it I want my $60 back plus $50 for Premium.
