    Very atmospheric first person shooter you can enjoy the best in small doses. Hardly anything to criticize because it is free and promises long-term entertainment. [Issue#204]

    Overall, we liked Battlefield Play4Free. The formula of quick, full-on combat makes this a game you can pick up and play when you have a spare 15 minutes or so.

    A decent core game despite its stripped down status.

    Even with some technical problems, a quite serious problem with cheaters and some connection issues, there is potential in Battlefield Play4Free, which offers a great relationship quality-price -that is, a very decent shooter for no money at all, which is a pretty good deal.

    It all leaves me wondering why, at this point, anyone would choose to spend money on Play4Free when they could essentially get a larger, more complete game for just a few bucks more than the minimum Battlefunds purchase price.

    After the first few hours, "free" becomes an illusion and the gameplay gets monotonous.

    I love this game. It's incredibly fun and somewhat difficult, but all-in-all an awesome game. But, you have to buy funds, which is a B*TCHI love this game.

The developer doesn't bother to release any new maps (except for reworked and often really bad Rush maps), no news, nothing. The game is full of cheaters (wallhackers, aimbotters are daily bread), whiners, hackusators, people who smash team vehicles for fun and so on.
    But the main problem are class limiters and level limiters and weapon limiters and I dont even know what else limiters. You spend connecting all the time (which is slow), then you get kicked because you happen to be sniper (which is probably the last class in form of influence on battle (for example engineer is far more important imo)), and then you take some other class, reload everything again, reconnect again and get kicked for some stupid weapon limitation for your gun (which you usually invested money to).
    Not to mention the constant repetition of the same maps (sharqui (rush) and oman, which gets boring reeealy fast. I know its not much problem of game developers, rather people who run the servers, but still... Avoid this game, used to be fun, now it's boring disaster and waste of time with no perspective.

They said this was for 'fairer' gameplay, yet the dev team still sells weapon 'boosters' and rents out other attachments. Scam artists to say the least. if your gonna play do not any money into this game Expand

And recently, the developers scammed whole paying community. It is a rare case in pay4content history, where you try to get rid of those who actually fund your game. Given the current disrespect to paying customers (and a daylight robbery) it is not likely that this game will last long. Feels like EA already already booked 100% impairment for this project. Expand

All players who bought veteran weapons "last forever" were literals robbed from their money as they replaced the weapons with other with different characteristic. Now, until you rent add on for your weapon, it is impossible to play as they balanced the weapons to be useless without spending constantly money. Another big fail for EA Expand
