    From the levelouted maps to commander mode to the new squad mechanics, Battlefield 4 is a top-to-bottom improved multiplayer experience over Battlefield 3. And Battlefield 3 was damn good, so that’s saying a lot.

    It's hard to make a judgment on Battlefield 4 because of the large gap of quality between the campaign and the multiplayer mode. Both are absolutely beautiful, but the former has nothing else... Fortunately, a Battlefield game is made to play with some other players. Maps are huge and well-balanced, the "Levolution" feature is kind of cool and vehicles make the experience really enjoyable. If you play alone, forget Battlefield 4. If not, go for it.

    BF4 gives continuity to what was achieved in the previous chapter, but there is still a long way to go until it reaches the desired quality. Recall that initially BF3 was not what we have today, a game improved to the max with all the updates introduced over two years.

    Battlefield 4 is an excellent multiplayer game that makes the most of its ambitions, proving once again that destruction is a valuable strategic addition to competitive combat, which reaches its full potential with two killer Commanders are bringing out the best in their squads. On the other hand, its single-player campaign is a disappointing.

    In spite of technical shortcomings, Battlefield 4 is a solid continuation of the series and its core content - the multiplayer game - will last you for a long time. [Issue#236]

    With new game modes, an enhanced interface, evolving maps, and greatly improved small-scale battles, Battlefield 4 continues the franchise’s trend of setting the standard for the squad-based multiplayer shooter.

    Another day, another PC launch riddled with bugs and issues. Battlefield 4 is a perfectly decent game with a crashing client, crashing servers, and a whole host of issues that cause lag, disconnections, graphic and sound glitches, and plenty more. When they get fixed it's easily worth a purchase; right now, it's a frustrating experience.

Guns mechanics seem to be better. Now you cant snipe guys with a controlled AR rifle. You now actually need a scope to engage at longer range. Now guns just dont lose accuracy after some only 3 bullets. you can fire longer burst. Suppression blur is removed. there is only a gun sway when you are suppressed without any accuracy hit and blur. guns and vehicles are more open to customization like you have more accessory slots for weapons and vehicles. Map design is very good. there are no choke points so far. you can always come back in game with alot of flanking ways. Expand

For a good price you can get the full version (with all DLCs), Dice is still implementing new content like maps etc, I dont see any bugs anymore, all is working as it should. And its a lot of fun - much better then with BF3. Even though not everybody wants to play as a team, some people just run around and dont care, the system is awarding you for team play and you can have some great expericence from time to time, with your team mates. If you want a full game at incredible price - go for it! Expand

    I know little kids will downvote me but anyways...The game is the equivalent of the Hollywood popcorn movies. The story is totallyI know little kids will downvote me but anyways...The game is the equivalent of the Hollywood popcorn movies. The story is totally unrealistic. The writers clearly have no how military, weapons, or just simply physics work in real life. A.I. is dumb (very dumb), graphics are nice, sound effect are mediocre at best. Weapon handling is the same for every weapon and you need to shoot every enemy 2-3-5 times before they would die (even with a high calibre sniper rifle).
    If you want a meaningful game look elsewhere. If you want explosions, collapsing building in every 4 seconds go for this game.

    Very good game. Single player is pretty weak, but the multiplayer can be good if you got a decent team. Another problem is that you cannotVery good game. Single player is pretty weak, but the multiplayer can be good if you got a decent team. Another problem is that you cannot play with AI team mates, or add AI team mates when match is not full. This game got really a lot of content and very good graphics. The main problem is large portion of glitches that breaks thi game and again stupid unlock system. I got feeling that this game is another rushed by EA. If dice got another 6 months on development this game would be great, but in this state it really is not. Expand
