Good

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.

Having never played a BF game before I was excited to sit down with this one. Sadly the story was a bit of a letdown, and the online multiplayer seemed a bit flawed. Both were riddled with bugs that made for a sometimes annoying experience. The scale of the game is great, and the visuals are nice for the most part. Kept me entertained for a few days but was quick to send back.
