Good

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.

Played till the part where the chopper chase you and you need to time the shot and place it just n the right place to bring it down. I find that incredibly annoying. Must have tried like 20 times with no dice. Games are meant to be fun, not torturous for no good reason. This is a TERRIBLE game. Ghastly at best
