Summary: When Battlefield works the way it's supposed to, it's a very enjoyable game my friends and I can play for hours. However, that rarely happens. Most of the time, our game play is plagued by so many different bugs and netcode issues we go back to play something entirely different. I'll get killed from around corners, rubber-banded back and forth for the entirety of the match, after to empty mag after mag into my opponents, only to have them turn around and shoot me once...
Summary: I would consider myself a very critical person, but I never hand out 1 star reviews. Typically I can find something positive to say about a product, but not Battlefield 4. Where do I start? My first Battlefield Game was Bad Company, and I have been hooked every since. I knew going into the launch of Battlefield 4 that there would be issues, because there always is. Every Battlefield game I have owned has been shaky the first week.
BF4 is a paid beta (even more so than BF3) UPDATED August 2014
1 December 2013
Summary: **August 2014 Update**: I'm cautiously taking my review back from one to three stars. I'm playing BF4 again via EA Access (which is the way I would recommend anyway, $5 is certainly worth a one month trial, if you don't want to pony up for a $30/year). So far many of the bugs I noticed before are gone, but I still need to take it through its paces with friends. Very disappointed in BF4.
Summary: There has been enough reviews all over the internet explaining the issues with this game. Overall wonderful graphics and Leveloution is pretty awesome but the constant ticks and kicks are enough to shelve it for a few months while a few more updates are released.
Summary: Very buggy. Apparently a fix is coming this week but in the mean time I have never played such a buggy xbox live game. Consistently kicks me out of game to the Xbox home screen. The thing is, this game looks great and when it works it is very fun and built for the next gen. If EA can fix the issues I am willing to drop call of duty for this one.
