    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.

    It has a very classic proposal, face to face combat without much thinking, and it works as a free game, being on of the greatest, indeed. But we miss some more options for cooperative play, and also better visuals.

    A decent core game despite its stripped down status.

    Better than Battlefield Heroes, but worse than real Battlefields. What is target audience? [May 2011]

    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.

    With graphics, gameplay and an approach to female gamers from the past, this game is just average. Battlefield: Play4Free is free to play, but my time is worth a lot more than this and I want my money back.

    It plays average, it feels average, and the payment system offers average content at an unjustified price. Unless you're a die-hard fan, this is a pass.

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