Summary: This game was plagued with issues from the get-go. I didn't play it but maybe a few months before I gave up on it and the Battlefield franchise completely. I won't be giving them any more money from this point forward. There are so many issues with this game it would take me an hour to write a complete review and the game honestly isn't worth the time it would take to do it.
Great Game but essentially unplayable with mandatory Origin integration

Summary: I love this game! But HATE EA and ORIGIN! When Origin servers are down, you cannot play ANY of your purchased games! When you post in the forums, the posts are removed for "Hateful Speech" (because calling attention to the outages, which never occurred pre-Origin btw, is clearly hateful and threatening).
Summary: This game is not what I was expecting. Most of my gamer friends have this and told me to get it with the premium expansion pack, so I did. BIG MISTAKE!!! I have played many shooters, not just COD, and this one is by far the worst. The gameplay is terribly slow and there is no instruction on how to figure things out. Even the campaign is terrible. I had to have a friend of mine explain it all to me.
Despicable to pay for cheats in a multiplayer game.
18 May 2014
Summary: The title just about sums it up, who in there right mind would pay for cheats in a a multplayer game? Not only that, but who allows there customers, who have already payed 60 to 120 dollars, to pay for cheats in a multiplayer game? When did monetization become such a disaster? This game is not free, so when did having to pay for every single thing in the game become okay, even after you payed for the game?
Summary: This game had a lot of potential, and I really wanted to like it. Unfortunately, it appears that EA's conversion of DICE into a soulless, cash-sucking vampire has completed; six months after release and the game still wouldn't be fit to be put on Steam Greenlight. And instead of focusing on the game's issues, they're more interested in shoveling out DLC before moving on to the next game.
Summary: After purchasing a 60 dollar game the last thing we should have to do is purchase another 60 dollar game just to get the rest of the content in the first purchase. This 'Premium' thing games have started to do is almost as bad as in-game purchases that free-to-play and even some pay-to-play or single-purchase games are doing.
Summary: Bugs. What can I say other than "bugs". EA/DICE can't seem to keep the game running well with online multiplayer. Too many bugs and crashes to desktop out of the gate make this one of the worst game launches yet. Gameplay is great when it works, until DICE updates the browser plugins and kills sound again.
Summary: I can usually get around 70-80 fps on max settings on DX11 mode. Quad core haswell, Windows 8.1 and up to date as well. It is not my PC.
Pros: It starts up
Cons: So far I have played this game for about 8 hours. I have seen glass break just by looking at it (I could look away for a split second then back at it and it would reappear and break all over again!), a glitchy save point that kept me from progressing because my team mates did not move, and roughly 2 to 3 hard lock ups. Not to mention random frame rate issues and this game takes FOREVER to load. Oh and you have to start it through a web browser plug in.
