 Battlefield 4 - MP Launch Trailer + reviews - movie
(hx) 01:42 AM EDT - Oct,30 2013
The reviews are starting to come in for DICE's latest shooter Battlefield 4: CVG: 9/10, Joystiq: 4.5/5, Shacknews: 7/10, Polygon: 7.5/10, Gamespot: 8/10, Eurogamer: 8/10, Videogamer: 9/1, GamesRadar: 4.5/5, IGN: 8.5, PC Gamer: 84%, Xbox 360 Achievements: 80%, US Gamer: 3.5/5, Machinima: 9.5, GameTrailers: 9.5,Game Informer: 8.75, AusGamer: 9.4
Battlefield 4 has all the necessary components for a good, story-driven shooter campaign. It's got a well-developed set of mechanics, oriented as much around strategic movement — vaulting over barriers, a workable lean system that works nearly auto-magically — as they are around the first-person shooting that so often takes center stage. Guns roar as concrete flies off of barriers and columns.

But for all the fury and fire that Battlefield 4 promises when you pull the trigger, there's little impact during firefights. There's a dizzying disconnect present in the damage it felt like I should be doing and the damage I did. In Battlefield 4, shy of a headshot, you'll be reloading often as you fling magazine after magazine at AI opponents. This combines with the enemies' tendency to hide behind cover for, well, forever, popping up every few seconds or so, leading to extended firefights where it doesn't feel like anything interesting is happening at all.

All of which directly contradicts a campaign that otherwise seems hellbent on throwing you forward, or down, or out of something — just about every chapter ends with your character getting tossed out of something at high speed and/or losing consciousness. Battlefield 4's campaign is a jumbled, minimally coherent collection of guided shooter clichés. It isn't just forgettable, it's consistently, often willfully stupid.

All these reviews fking suck balls.. fking useless sales job shit sites.

no mention of the fact you still have to open your fking web browser, to log into there piece of shit craplog website just to join a multiplayer server only if you have there browser plugin meaning you need a compatible browser that supports there piece of shit infested browser plugins, On top of having to use that other steaming pile crap of Origin.


And EA DICE you lazy fking shmucks where are the mod tools and map editors :D lol what I am thinking... Cashcow 4 has arrived and the new ripoff DLC premium shitpacks are around the corner ready for the herds of fantard sheep to buy up for the new round of battlefag warhacking.

PC gamer should start reviewing hacks.

Rare as hell, but totally agree with you. Sad that reviewers/sites suck so bad. I look at gameplay video and from what I've seen in this game, it's no different than any of the others before it.

Check it out! Wow is this game worth it or what?!!!!!

Um... Isn't that pretty much true of every Battlefield game since 1942? Meaning all of them.

I did enjoy 1942, (more than any of the sequels, anyway), but it was frustrating to sit there cranking off a half-dozen center mass shots with a M1 Garand or emptying two magazines from a MP40 into them before they finally dropped. I understand that one-shot kill games aren't really all that much fun, (I'm basically just an uncoordinated moving target in Red Orchestra), but there's such a thing as going too far in the other direction, and I think the BF games do exactly that. Tell me if this doesn't seem familiar:
