A disappointment

As a huge fan of Battlefield 3 on the 360, I could not wait to get my hands on an xbox one and a copy of BF4, to enjoy 64-player servers and the graphics that PC players have had for years. However, when I finally picked up my copy, I realized this was not the game I was promised.
The worst part about BF4 is the lack of polish.The game crashes, saves get deleted, sound disappears from time to time, and lag plagues some matches. Even when I managed to escape those problems for brief periods of time, the terrible maps and weapon and vehicle imbalance ruined the experience.
There is not a single map I enjoy playing on in this game. Not a single one stands out as a classic. There are some spots in the environment that can provide an interesting battle, but the maps as a whole just feel too spread out and too conquest oriented for my liking. It just feels like there is always an angle for someone to shoot you. Also, since there is less health in this game than in BF3, death is harder to avoid and therefor frustrating.
Hm, what else? Levolution is a gimmick, the campaign is a joke, and the naval theme just provides terrible boat to boat combat. I hate battlefield 4.
The only good thing about this game is the graphics; they make call of duty ghosts look ugly.
All in all, I will say that this game was a major disappointment for a next gen customer, and a blemish on Dices very good record. Don't bother.

Falls short of expectations, but not a bad game.

Battlefield 4 is definitely a game to play with friends. The amount of fun you can have doing something crazy in this game is great! But the technical problems they keep refusing to fix are quite frustrating. Often times, your taking fire and run behind cover only to die in what you thought was a safe spot to regenerate HP to the guy who was shooting around the corner because of the server lag, which is incredibly noticeable. The network smoothing does make it appear that no one is lagging, but sometimes when you shoot at someone you think is there, but server-side your actually shooting beside them. Many features are kind of wonky, like half the time you can't pick-up the special guns like the 6-round grenade launcher and the .50 rifle. Also, when you play on the naval strike maps, there is this horrible rubber-banding that makes the maps unplayable sometimes. All-in-all, If you can put up with lag and bugs, and you have friends to mess around with, you can have quite a blast with Battlefield 4.
