Hello there weary traveler, welcome to my ModDB profile, my main profile for modding games. My name is Sasha and I live in Republic of Srpska. I'm a proud Yugoslavian and long time video gamer. I like playing and modding video games but since I've finished college, I don't have much of free time to do what I want so games and modding are suffering because of that. But still from time to time you can find me on the battlefieds.
Game Review on Nov 13th, 2014 - 5 people agree 2 people don't
After I bought basic version of BF4 for 10€. I started to play it more and now after playing MP more deeply, I have a new review.
Campaign: Bugged and it's very boring, I primary completed it for MP unlocks. There's nothing there that would make me want to play it again.
Multiplayer: I like weapons and how some weapon classes can be use by all soldier classes. It makes it good and interesting to play. I also like that you can't replenish grenades from ammo crate which in result stopped grenade spam (Finally). Also I like sniper bullet drop and being able to set range. I highly dislike advantage of higher level players when comes to vehicles, they have unlocked gadgets that have an edge over a new or low level player. Also now you need almost 4-5 AT shots in order to destroy a tank (you have max 5 rockets with higher level specialisation). Weapon usage/stats are almost the same, so in CQ use >750 RPM in open maps <750 RPM.
Graphics/Engine: Colors preset just look too much cartoonish for my taste, not to say that soldier "glow" in dark so that makes it even more cartoonish and kills the fun. But even if soldiers "glow" you can't see their textures because they are dark and very badly done, in BF3 changing a soldier texture was a very beautiful feature, here you'll be using default one because all other ones are mostly ugly. Soldier hitboxes are bugged or just made bad, shotting at someone and game not registring a hit when comes to some body parts. Net code problem, still there, not as it used to be but still there, (BF3 has almost perfect net code). Comparing BF4 with BF3, BF4 demands more powerfull PC and in return graphics looks simple to say worse and this new engine version is unoptimized and has memory leaks and long map loading time. The so called "levolution" is one giant pile of poop. Comparing BF4 with BF3 and BFBC2, BF4 has almost no destrucion, why because it's not about triggering a one larger destruction of some map object, it's about changing the shape of battlefield during the gameplay, here you don't have it. So in BF4 lot's of building/objects CAN'T be destroyed or damaged. Their "Levolution" is just another pile of poop.
I personally prefer BF3 over BF4 in almost every aspect. I don't recommend BF4, buy BF3+premium and enjoy. BF4 is too much arcade in every way. Disaster.
