All of what people have been saying is true - except you take the bugs and glitches being experienced by PC/Next-gen players and multiply it exponentially. I usually end up getting 1 shot killed for the grand majority of my deaths due to the 1 shot kill bug that has been patched on PC/Next-gen but evidently it is still a problem on old consoles.
Maps are still far too big for 24 players. You spend 90% of your game time running to objectives. And if you are in infantry player you're out of luck because this game is basically like the AK expansion for BF3. It's all about the vehicles. But in general, the maps are poorly designed for 24 player servers.
So many bugs I don't even know when to begin. My first experience with BF4 started with a system freeze in the first 10 minutes of gameplay. Had to hard-reset my PS3. This has happened roughly 15 times in less than 4 hours of gameplay. Tried a complete reinstall, and the same problem persists.
Character reload animation frequently glitches (you can't tell your character is reloading because it wont do the reload animation).
Latency is AWFUL. Ping is ~30, yet my screen seems to be frequently up to 2 full seconds behind the action in the game. I can see somebody at the end of the street pop out, I hurry and duck behind cover, and get insta-killed 5 or 6 steps into cover.
Character will frequently just whip out his defibs or throw ammo/medic packs all of his own accord in the middle of a firefight.
Controls, even when set on Veteran, are NOT EVEN CLOSE to BF3 controls, and piloting vehicles is nothing short of frustrating.
Graphics are BAD. Rendering is poor, and it's difficult to see enemies when things start getting excited.
The field of view....wow. Maybe a 45 degree field of view, compared with the 180+ degree field of view you have in real life!
I can say without hesitation that this is the single most broken AAA title I've ever played. Two DLCs released, yet the game remains unplayable? This
