Battlefield 4 is impressive in many area's but falls short of amazing. The Graphic's and sound is impressive it really shows what the PS4 is capable of doing The enime A.I makes for very long gun battle and the story is pretty good. However the teammte A.I is what brings this game down they allow enimes to run past them and they block your out and they follow you when you're trying to flank to draw fire. Q. What does block your out mean. A. It means don't take my out when you're in a gun battle you look for cover advantage you look for view advantage like high view is better then low view and you're looking for an out in case you need to get out of there.
This game is insanely amazing. Everything feels right and balanced, well ok not metro or he other cqb map as those are weak frag fests. The things that you can do in this game, the variation from one match to another, it's staggering. Cod has grown stagnant while bf has struggled to get better and more interesting in every regard.
Teamwork is important, objectives are important, who you play with makes all the difference. You can play the same map and never have the same kind of game. The sheer scope is almost overwhelming. Towers being knocked over, buildings crashing down, tanks, jets, aa, ac130s, every type of firearm imaginable it's just insane. There's no use x weapon and sprint/spray/pray approach here. Cod has become a fragfesf of computer generated kills. In bf4 grit, and skill with firearms, still reigns king.
Overall, you can tell that this game was made for multiplayer. While the single player element is decent, it seems tacked on and not very interesting. The story is average, at best.
Graphics are a mixed bag. Great character models, with muddy environmental textures. I noticed, quite a few times, characters clipping through many different objects in the environment. Framerate seems consistent throughout and there are some nice set pieces to fight in and around. The game runs at 900p and upscales to 1080, which shows more aliasing than a true HD game would. It is also probably the reason why some textures look muddy. Animation is decent, but not much different than last gen.
Gameplay is on par with any FPS in the past 10 years.no huge surprises. Some boat and vehicle segments thrown in to break up the monotony of shooting. There are a ton of weapons to find and upgrade, which should keep you coming back. If it wasnt for those collectables though... I couldnt see much that would make you want to play through the story again.
Controls are no different than any other FPS. Solid and quick.
Overall, Its OK... But nothing special. I truly had more fun playing through COD Ghosts story. It was just better paced and less disjointed. There were also some nicer environmental textures at true 1080p which helped it look sharper, even though the overall graphics were of lesser quality. Especially the character models, which were the visual highlight of Battlefield 4.
If you are thinking of playing this game for single player only, I would rent it or buy it for less than $30. I doubt, unless you enjoy collecting all of the guns and dogtags, you will play it twice... Which will make this a pricy 4 or 5 hours, unless you also enjoy multiplayer too.
Unfortunately, multiplayer is in bad shape and doesnt show signs of ever being resolved before the next game hits. So I would say rent this game. Enjoy single player for what it is and send it back. Save your money for a b
