Battlefield 4 is the genre-defining action blockbuster made from moments that blur the line between game and glory. Fueled by the next-generation power and fidelity of Frostbite 3, Battlefield 4 provides a visceral, dramatic experience unlike any other. Only in Battlefield can you demolish the buildings shielding your enemy. Only in Battlefield will you lead an assault from the back of a gun boat. Battlefield grants you the freedom to do more and be more while playing to your strengths and carving your own path to victory. In addition to its hallmark multiplayer, Battlefield 4 features an intense, dramatic character-driven campaign that starts with the evacuation of American VIPs from Shanghai and follows your squad's struggle to find its way home.

There is no comparison. Immerse yourself in the glorious chaos of all-out war, found only in Battlefield:
  • experience Levolution, changing the landscape in real-time with interactive environments that react to your every move
  • you will find the awe-inspiring power of the next generation Frostbite 3 engine, whose unrivaled audio and visual fidelity make your game more dramatic, more believable, and more human
  • you can experience an unmatched level of all-out war that grants you the freedom to play to your strengths and carve your own path to victory
  • you have the power to dominate land, air and sea with all-new, intense water-based vehicle combat

About Battlefield 4 with 5 comments by ComradeWinston on Oct 30th, 2013

Singleplayer

+1 Pretty.
+4 Relatively believable interesting characters.
-1 Tried too hard to make some characters hardasses, which occasionally turned conversations into a dick measuring competition.
+3 Plot wasn't ridiculous.
+69 Badass Russian.
-71 Killing off the Badass Russian casually to get on with the plot. (not even a heroic death, cmon that goes against the rules of badassery)
+4 Good pacing; didn't drag out too long and the story moved from one point to another smoothly.
-2 Never overviewed the situation with Russia or China. (obviously at war to some end, otherwise left clueless)
+1 Satisfying end. (and one of the easiest choices in the history of mankind)

8/10

(Summary: Good short campaign; obviously not the reason to buy the game in the first place but regardless deserves credit for being a relatively good experience in totality for what it is.)

Multiplayer
+9 Most maps don't suck like the last game's.
-1 Ironically enough, could use a few smaller maps. Most are outright huge.
-1 A few maps feel like a puzzle with some bits forcefully shoved in.
+2 Map specific "levolution events" sometimes drastically change a map.
+3 Managed to fill maps with a variety of vehicles, including some hardly utilized in the previous game.
-2 Combat is still as hyper as it was in the last game, moving away from the older less ADD inducing combat of older Battlefield games. If I wanted that, I'd go play Call of Duty.
-1 Awkward initial loadouts/odd weapons, such as the default automatically locking-on missile launcher that takes 5 hits to destroy a tank but can be fired practically at the rate of a sniper rifle.
-1 Abysmal Launch.

*Launch Issues*

-1 Frequent(expected) lag/rubberbanding problems.
-3 Frequent CTDs and server crashes.
-1 Map-specific sound problems; for extended periods of time on a relatively large number of maps you cannot hear anything and will probably die to things you can't even hear, like tanks.

Launch: 4/10
Once Patched/Fixed: 8/10

I am not saying that they aren't great..but this is not the way a BF game should be...it has lost a lot of it's uniqueness in SP terms IMO and it lost the modding tools ._.

Dima convinced Blackburn to shoot Cole, by telling him "If you don't shoot him, millions will die". Some claim that he lied only to get Blackburn to shoot Cole, since only 80,000 were killed in Paris. But Dima would have been right if the US government believed Blackburn. Millions would die in a war between Russia and the US (as we may see very soon).

It is not a surprise that Electronic ***** finally ruined the Battlefield series. Let us pray to the Machine God that Electronic ***** will go out of business and that the Battlefield series will be inherited by a worthy video game developer - hopefully, Valve.

The Battlefield franchise was ruined when it was turned into a propaganda tool, when a campaign was added to the games. Before that, the game was unbiased, fair and fun. Now they make factions like the PLR that aren't even playable. They're just there so you can shoot them.

The only good Battlefield game which has a campaign is the console edition of Battlefield 2, BF2: Modern Combat.

2142 was the best Battlefield in my opinion.

This game is just a mess. After half a year it's still broken and DICE continues to mock the ire of its own fans.

After one broken game after another, I'm just going to outright stop buying their broken shit. At most I'll await the reviews of the upcoming Battlefront, otherwise I'm entirely done giving EA my money.
