Battlefield 4 – The Review

17th December 2013

Battlefield 4 is the latest incarnation of the Battlefield games from EA Sports and Dice, it is available on the older generation consoles (PS3 & Xbox 360) and the next generation consoles (PS4 & Xbox one).

Overall, the gameplay is a huge improvement from Battlefield 3. The single player is definitely much improved; your squad members have better personalities, and have their moments, which make the campaign more interesting.

Going through the single player mode is also a great way to train for the multiplayer mode, because they made the gameplay as similar to the multiplayer mode as possible. You get points for killing enemy soldiers, the points vary with the type of kill. You get more points for head shots than body shots; you also get to unlock a lot of cool guns.

The multiplayer mode is where all the fun is, especially if you are playing it on a next generation console like the PS4 because the game is displayed in 1080p HD, which gives you stunning visuals. The multiplayer mode is similar to the Battlefield 3 multiplayer mode so people who played it won’t have any problems adjusting.

Every map has a levolution action, that changes every time, ranging from natural disasters, to dams breaking, and debris falling all over the place, causing chaos and destruction. You can alter your surroundings to gain the upper hand on your opponents by turning off the lights and using night vision, or flooding an entire city.

Being aware of your surroundings is also important, because a car alarm might go off if you touch the car while sneaking, and metal detectors can give away your position if you walk through one. The multiplayer mode has been positively improved, and still stays true to the franchise roots with well balanced classes which prevent one class from dominating any map.

Amazing!

Review Score

Battlefield 4 is a very nice improvement from Battlefield 3, the single player mode is vastly improved, but the storyline could still use some work. The multiplayer mode is in a class by itself, gamers that are new to the franchise, and returning fans are definitely going to have fun with the game. If you haven't already I would definitely add this to the Christmas wish list.
