Summary: Could have been a superb game if the launch had not been so horrendous. This was a missed oppertunity to gain serious ground on Call of Duty. When this game works properly, it is worthy of a much higher rating, but until then I cannot bring myself to rate it higher.
Pros: 32 vs 32, enough said. Absolutely the most fun I have had playing a shooter online in a good long while, when the game gave me the honor of playing. Just because I have heard complaints, I have had no problems with my campaign progress being lost. The campaign is suffiscient, but far from a tantalizing tail, but that is not why I puchased this game.
Cons: The game was released before it should have been. Even now I still struggle to find matches. EA has really dropped the ball on this, which is the primary purpose anyone even buys a Battlefield game. I woud reccomend waiting for a price drop, or at least until EA can meet the online demand to justify the cost.
Summary: All the negative feedback is absolutely the truth. For the past four days I have spent about three hours trying to play multiplayer and thirty minutes playing. At times the game won't even get to the past load screen. Terrible. If they fix the multiplayer issues soon I will keep the game, if not I will get rid of it and maybe buy it when it is fixed.
Summary: Disappointing. Not worth $60. Terrible multiplayer that's barely playable.
Pros: Nice looking visuals. Realistic weapon effects, weapon sounds, and weapon recoil. The fact that you can use vehicles!
Cons: Multiplayer is terrible as of December 13th. It has been nearly a month since the xbox one has released and I still cannot even join any matches. I get long hang times in que and once a match is found it never can connect. I was lucky to get into one game that eventually disconnected me. Terrible party features to get all your friends together. No lobbies at all.
Summary: I've played computer games and console games over the years. When Diablo 3 launched it had problems, but were fixed within a week. My xbox one arrived without a hitch was great. Installed COD first, it was a gift. And then installed bf4. I was blown away by the graphics and the campaign.. Now here we go. Campaign I finished 1st mission... Then I went to multiplayer and it was absolute trash. So much lag, crashes, and even game freezes.
Summary: Campaign pretty boring. Multiplayer is great, until the server drops you. As soon as this happens, go into history and locate the server you were on. I found that every time I've done this it listed 0/64, meaning the server had crashed. Not to mention there are way too few servers handling the games at any time. Dice is nice, but I think EA mishandles the crap servers.
Summary: *UPDATE* This was a statement made by an EA spokesperson to Polygon on or around 12/4/13: "First, we want to thank the fans out there that are playing and supporting us with Battlefield 4," the spokesperson said. "We know we still have a ways to go with fixing the game -- it is absolutely our No. 1 priority. The team at DICE is working non-stop to update the game.
Summary: i play only campaign, the previous Battlefield games were pretty good, and i can't believe this one being one from the series. it no longer can be compared with other main title, like Call of Duty. this one is so very sloppy and full of bugs, i'd say even a game with not so well reception Medal of Honor Warfighter is better than this. this one is definitely not with the big title's quality i expected. so many glitches - as many have found.
Excerpt: I purchased battlefield 4 for the xbox one a week ago and have had nothing but problems, the campaign has serious issues with loading and often puts you back whilst in the middle of a gun fight. The campaign is easy to complete when it stops putting you in strange places and spawning enemies behind you. The collectibles are easy to find and achievements rack up quite quickly if you complete the extra objectives such as get a certain amount of points on the levels.
