    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

The single player isn't the greatest but who cares? its a multiplayer game and that aspect is fantastic. Despite the issues with net code( Its only a week in, i'm sure they'll fix it) its not a game breaker imo. Buy it and i guarantee you'll love it. Expand

    I'm not even going to mention the campaign as I believe it to be a total waste of Hard Drive space.

    So a simple pros and cons list of BF4's
    I'm not even going to mention the campaign as I believe it to be a total waste of Hard Drive space.

    So a simple pros and cons list of BF4's multiplayer.

    Pros:

    - Rich combat system plenty of unlocks and customization abilities
    - Nice looking and very detailed maps
    - Squad VOIP
    - Better spotting system than BF3
    - Better squad perk system
    - Wall peeking and performance is actually better than BF3 for me at least using nvidia 670 fx 8350 )
    - Balanced weapons people will debate this )
    - No one really communicates with each other

    Cons:

    - Requires Battlelog
    - Requires Origin
    - Crashes somewhat frequently (2 out of 10 games for me)
    - Very unbalanced vehicles
    - Tiny aim dot for jets
    - Many invisible wall collisions
    - Hit detection that was worse than BF3s but occurs less often
    - Objects have bad collisions sometimes invisible walls intercept your shot trajectory )
    - Enemy squadmates spawn on allies while you are killing them meaning they can easily kill you as you will have spent most of your clip on the first guy.

    Conclusion: For most of you this will put it simply enough. I got Premium for BF3 and didn't feel like a cent was wasted but I will not be getting Premium for BF4 at all.

    This game isn't even finished. Characters and spawned away from the current objective, massive amounts of texture "errors" or in other wordsThis game isn't even finished. Characters and spawned away from the current objective, massive amounts of texture "errors" or in other words they just didn't bother to give it a texture, and it isn't even the first big blunder by EA, a multi-million dollar company nonetheless. The story has no depth and it's just mindless killing. NPC's aren't animated. And the biggest fault I have found is that it is just too much like Call of Duty. The only good selling point that I could find is that SOME buildings are destructible. The game just bland killing and explosion to make things seem cooler. The people who play tested this game need to be fired because they OK'ed a tech demo. Expand
