Excerpt: Introduction, setup, requirements Battlefield 4 developer DICE has never had a reputation for polished releases, and this iteration did nothing to change that. But the team worked hard post-launch launch year to bring the game into a fairly respectable state, and within months the backlash died down...
Conclusion: A solid single player campaign and a massive multiplayer experience built atop the strong foundations of previous Battlefield games, could be the shortest way of expressing how awesome Battlefield 4 truly is.
Summary: The Battlefield series is back after taking two years off to re-tool and rebuild. It’s nice to see one modern shooter franchise that isn’t afraid to take some time off, and the time in development has allowed for some significant jumps forward in technology and gameplay.
Summary: It's fair to say that the Battlefield franchise is built on its ability to create large-scale, varied conflicts on a much larger scale than the competition. Battlefield 4 promises to up the visual ante of its predecessor while providing a host of new, dynamic maps and an all-new campaign story.

Pros: Destructible environments. Realistic weather effects. Up to 64 players in online multiplayer modes. Detailed and realistic graphics and sound create a visceral, dramatic experience.
Cons: Short single player campaign mode. Some multiplayer maps aren't fun due to the poor placement of cover and capture points.

Conclusion: Battlefield 4 is another hit in a franchise that has had few misses. If you think all this sounds like not a lot has changed since BF3 , you’re correct. This one features minor improvements, notably with graphics and the added modes.
Pros: Commander Mode is back; new maps, new modes, more BF fun
Cons: Campaign mode is serious dud; plan on buying a new computer!
