This game promised so much from all the hype and trailers. But since its release has failed on all formats. With the multiplayer games crashing, freezing, loss of unlocks, lag, bad tickrate, campaign saves lost, i could go on but won't. It has been 4 months since first release and ea/dice have still failed to fix all the issues in some cases making it worse. It is now on it's 8th patch/update (4th march). When it is working it is a fine game but should never have been released in the state it was. In fact i would say as a game it was and still is "not fit for purpose" for which it has been sold and gamers should not have to put up such shoddy workmanship. If you intend to buy this look at the forums and ask people who have previously bought this for their opinion. I would have only given it 1* but i have always liked the battlefield series, so hopefully it will soon be fixed. P.s. The map dawnbreaker is known as gamebreaker and avoided by those who already have the game.
Not tried the story mode yet but the multiplayer is by far the best 1st person shooter there is. Loads of the Battlefield regular vehicles like tanks,APCs, jeeps, planes, helicopters but added in BF4 are new types of gun boats as well as new guns, camos and equipment. Enviroments change during games, flood water rises, tidal waves that wash wrecked warships ashore. Loads of buildings to flatten to as you would expect in the Battlefield series. I preordered the game and got it a day before release. I will never buy another Call of Duty, as COD feels like half a game after playing BF. Off now to drive a tank through a building.
