A solid upgrade with a rough start.heerox328 | Nov. 8, 2014 | See all heerox328's reviews »
Battlefield is a franchise like no other. Enjoy a first person shooter? Enjoy massive warfare with unrivaled graphic fidelity and incredible destruction? Look no further.
Running on Frostbite 3, DICE brings us its latest and most ambitious Battlefield experience yet. With the additions of levolution and the return of commander mode, DICE ups the standards once again from the award-winning Battlefield 3.
While admittedly Battlefield 4 had a slow start due to lack of polish and netcode issues, DICE has worked hard to revamp the game and give it the overhaul and attention it needed. This isn't a significant upgrade from Battlefield 3, but it does have better visuals, more customization, levolution, and a single player experience that is somewhat better.
Solid game. Definitely worth picking up if it's on sale. If you already own Battlefield 3, I might wait until Hardline or Star Wars Battlefront before picking up another Battlefield title.

As always, the campaign was terrible, but i didn't care much about that. but somehow, dice: one of the best Video Game companies in the world when it comes to multiplayer, screwed it up. when it came it there were glitches EVERYWHERE. even after they updated it, it never really held. stick to battlefield 3

The game tries too hard to improve on the last battlefield game. The graphics look the same but the cut scenes interrupt the game-play. It seems that the weapons are great and spot on in how they work but have characters popping out of unknown holes. frustrating at times with a bug and the save restarting to beginning of checkpoints. Multiplayer is same as usual with these modern war games.
A Fantastic Multiplayer Experience.Darkrai64 | May 28, 2014 | See all Darkrai64's reviews »
The multiplayer is where the game shines. The singleplayer is actually decent. It was fun to play through, but it was mostly linear and there is not much of a reason to go through it a second time. The multiplayer, however, is what keeps players playing for days, weeks, months, and maybe even years! The multiplayer has a lot of action happening. With ground, sea, and aerial combat, the enemy can attack from any direction. The maps are mostly well done and feature multiple routes to flank your enemy. There are many unlockables, including weapons, medals, attachments, and more. The graphics are excellent, quite possibly one of the best looking FPS games on the market. The game had a very rough launch, but after many patches, it is much better. If you are looking for a fun multiplayer experience, check out Battlefield 4.

Battlefield 4 is definately better than Battlefield 3 in terms of vehicles and maps. However it still has the fundamental issues that Battlefield 3 had. The netcode is awful. You still die behind cover. The game is glitchy and lags. Dice has had over 6 months to fix the game but has failed to do so. When released this game was unplayable. It is a bit better but not by much. Save your money.
