    Battlefield 4 is stout entry to the series and a strong addition to the PlayStation 4 launch lineup. As the first game to demonstrate the prowess of the Frostbite 3 engine, its explosive debut indicates a promising future for its technology. Gear up and strap in, Battlefield 4 sets the new standard for next-generation multiplayer.

    Battlefield 4 is an excellent multiplayer FPS with wildly varied vehicles and interesting maps. [Jan 2014]

    It’s a shame DICE still treads the B-grade storytelling path with its single-player game, otherwise Battlefield 4 would be dangerously close to shooter perfection. [Christmas 2013, p67]

    Multiplayer as its best, but the campaign is a total disappointment.

    While featuring a mostly forgettable single player, the characteristics of multiplayer in Battlefield 4 works so well making the DICE title the reference in a competitive context, as well as a real game changer from a technical point of view.

    Battlefield 4 feels like more of a ‘true’ Battlefield game when compared to its predecessor, aping that sandbox arena fun that made 1942 such a hit. Thanks to the power of PlayStation 4, we finally have a PC Battlefield experience on a home console, and it’s pretty darn good.
  7. The issues aren’t ruinous, and in the case of the multiplayer more an inconvenience that EA needs to address than anything else – but it’s enough to take the shine off what should be one of the best shooters on PS4.

    First of all, just want to clarify I’ll only give my opinion about the SP campaign, I haven’t tried the multiplayer nor I am interested in it,First of all, just want to clarify I’ll only give my opinion about the SP campaign, I haven’t tried the multiplayer nor I am interested in it, although I’m pretty sure it is quite decent.

    I am just going to say that the graphics, voice acting, sound effects etc. are quite good, I don’t think this comes as a surprise as DICE is usually very good at that. In terms of gameplay, it is just another FPS game, with all the good and the bad. If you like FPS, you will definitely enjoy this one. I don’t think there is a lot to say as everybody has played a CoD or a BF or something at some point and there is nothing special about BF4. I’d only say, in terms of the campaign, I am a bit disappointed. The campaign is not as spectacular and such an adrenaline rush as it is in other games. The story is quite basic, there is absolutely nothing special about it, the characters are a cliché and the missions are not specially surprising, meaning you won’t see something you’ll say “wow”. As I said, this is kind of a disappointment since BF3 had a great campaign, with great story and some really “wow” moments. I understand a lot of the focus on these games (from devs and players) goes into the multiplayer and, that solo player is not that important anymore, but BF4 campaign feels as if it was done quickly to just tick the “this game has a single player mode” box.

    My opinion then is, if you enjoy this kind of games for the campaign, just buy this one if it is quite cheap (got it on sales for less than a fiver), otherwise look for something else, because you’ll complete the game with a “meh” feeling. Those mainly looking for a good multiplayer experience, I don’t know, but this game is probably quite good for that (read some other reviews ).

    I will start by pointing out the obvious.... the single player campaign is completely pointless but that isnt why people buy battlefield. TheI will start by pointing out the obvious.... the single player campaign is completely pointless but that isnt why people buy battlefield. The multiplayer is much worse than BF3, the matches last less than 10 minutes and privately run servers are defiantly needed. Other bad points include the truly awful maps which have the defending bases 100 yards apart which ruins Rush the best game mode. elsewhere the terrible menus and lack of party/squad is enough to put you off. Became bored of the online after reaching a days playtime this compared to the 11 day play time which stretched over 2 years on bf3 means its a much worse game. The poor selection of release games means you will still probably want to pick this up if you want to play multiplayer with mates Expand
