Multiplayer Review

Here's my 9/10 explanation:

I would have given this a 10/10, but perhaps I'm just a typical Call of Duty fan.

There is a strange feeling in this game that I do not get in Call of Duty. I feel like nearly every little action matters in BTF 4. I run up, lay down and start shooting where I see an enemy and other friendly fire heading towards. There is a feeling that I am actually helping to contain the enemy in that very spot for others to w33d out, and at points I'd receive a little score for suppressing the enemy. Weather or not this is a true aspect of the game, the feeling is there and that's all that matters in a virtual experience. In CoD you feel like if you aren't hitting them on the dot, you aren't doing anything, and where nothing but kills matter in CoD, you still feel like a bad-A if you have three BTF4 kills but still managed to blow up multiple vehicles.

The movement feels great, it doesn't feel like you're simply sliding through the maps, you actually feel like there's quite a bit of traction between your characters feet and the ground. Jumping in and out of cover and from prone positions shakes the camera.

You can change your equipment IN the matches.

The gameplay pace varies from game mode to game mode, so if you're a big CoD fan, they have a mode for you, if you like methodical shooters, they have one for you as well, and everything in between.

Destructible environment. I love seeing a guy walk behind a wall out of my view. "Where the heII are you going?" Blow the wall out with a grenade launcher and kill him

The only issue I had (Which kept me from a perfect score), and this is solely a personal reason, is the difficulty. When playing a faster paced fps for the first time starts off difficult, but you quickly master it. However, I played BTF4 for almost a month and got no more than 10 kills in a match. And that was a one time number. Didn't RUIN the experience for me though.

Battlefield 4 is full of glitches, connection issues, frame rate issues, and poor spawns. The only redeeming quality this game has is the vast weapons selection, and customization. I am VERY pleased that I got this game through Gamefly, as if I had purchased this, I would have returned it. Thank you Gamefly for keeping me from making poor decisions.

Or possibly made with only next up-and-coming consoles in mind... Battlefield 4 leaves much to desire in graphics and game-control interface. Battlefield 3 had a very clean and refined game functionality from the start; I am not sure why EA would push a game that feels unrefined in numerous instance. With countless bugs and graphic issues you normally dont expect from Battlefield, but there is few refined aspects

Single player campaign is standard and doesn't have much depth to what goes on in the story... You play a Marine who goes by the name or alias "Recker" .
Recker is a part of a squad of tactical Marine covert operations... Set out to engage in hostile and unexplainable terrorist attacks.

Very STANDARD / basic story... They throw you into a series of missions that have significant events to the game world environment... Floods, collasping buildings... You create these events in game and multiplayer. Some of the terrerain is very flat and empty... Geographically compositions that are unplausible... While some parts are very well detailed . Animation of vehicles have been improved... The aircraft don't have that floating appearance as they often seemed to appear as in Battlefield 3.

The multiplayer bugs and glitching are still there. Empting your clip inside someones face and they just trying to see you in the dark and one shot killing you... Always makes you want to just throw the gun at the person, because you think it would do more damage.

The new commander mode is interesting, being a spectater that can interact with the game is how it has evolved though. So far I've had one commander drop a ammo crate on top of me ... Killing me... Rather it was accidental or on purpose is undetermined as the game is new. But dropping supplies, doing air strikes, and making tactical approach is what the commander is for... Or watching over the game telling the other team whats going on.

Could have been better. Some of the driving controls are awful too.
