Battlefield 4 finally outguns Call of Duty — and then shoots itself in the foot (review)

29 November 2013
  • Conclusion: The first-person shooter wars have been an endless treadmill for the teams making the Battlefield and Call of Duty. It’s nice to see that a smarter approach to making a game, in this case by the EA DICE team, really pays off in a better experience for the player. EA could have tried to match Call of Duty by issuing a new game every year. But by taking extra care and publishing this game two years after the last game, the result is better quality.
  • Pros: Battlefield 4 follows the fortune of a single squad, Tombstone, as the U.S. becomes embroiled in a war with a militaristic faction of the Chinese government. The first scene does a good job of highlighting a lot of the cool things that happen in the game, and it is also an intense beginning. The action is set in 2020, six years after the events of Battlefield 3. Russia and the U.S. have been fighting for six years, but war with China is imminent because of a spat with...
  • Cons: I finished the single-player campaign in about seven hours. It wasn’t particularly difficult, but I could have stretched it out more if I played it on a harder setting. It could have used more in-depth cutscenes. One annoyance is that some of these have a lot of dialogue, but you don’t see the actual characters talking.

Battlefield 4

29 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Battlefield 4 is the newest release from Electronic Arts and DICE which promised big changes for the series. The Battlefield series offers current-gen gamers one last adventure with the newest release, but sadly, it completely fails to deliver the game experience needed for hardcore fans of the series. We reviewed the game primarily on PlayStation 3 and found that the graphics, sound, and gameplay mechanics were all average to say the least.

  • Excerpt: Krieg ist seit einigen Jahrzehnten zwar nicht mehr ein fester Bereich in unserem Alltag, aber immer noch ein wichtiges Thema in unserem Leben. Sehr gut zu beobachten ist dieses in der Videospielbranche, wo Kriegsspiele die Kassen seit ihrer Erfindung haben klingeln lassen. So steht mit Battlefield 4 von DICE und Electronic Arts ein weiterer Titel bereit, der sich in diesem Setting austobt.
  • Pros: + zerstörbare Gebäude und Strukturen + Militärfahrzeuge bieten ein interessantes Spielkonzept + eine große Anzahl an verschiedenen Spielmodi + große, weitläufige Maps mit vielen individuellen Punkten und Eigenschaften + einsteigerfreundliches und umfangreiches Gameplay + Commander-Modus ist eine lustige, kleine Feature-App
  • Cons: - überflüssiger, mittelmäßiger Einzelspieler-Modus - Deathmatch-Modi nicht ausbalanciert und chaotisch - schwache Texturen - kaum wirkliche Weiterentwicklungen zum Vorgänger - trotzdem viele fehlende Feature des Vorgängers - Preispolitik - viele Bugs, welche das Spiel auf einigen Plattformen unzumutbar machen
