Battlefield 4

No issues at all for me tonight (so temperamental!) and had some great games. I seemed to have had a breakthrough and began to fly the copters with some semblance of normality which is a major breakthrough for me after years of trying. I just can't stop playing this. :)

Dood: What os are you running it on? I've got Win 8.1 installed and it is smooth as you like when it's working. Wasn't there talk of it running better on 8 or was that just marketing?

Have EA trotted out the surprised by popularity excuse for problems this time round? As all reports are that this is selling worse than its predecessor.

Can't speak for PC or PS3, but on Xbox 360 there's been no problem at all getting games, with plenty of servers available. BF:BC2 and BF3 both had a couple of weeks of problems, but apart from a handful of kicks and crashes this has been surprisingly smooth.

Had some really good games on PS3 yesterday but there are some quite annoying bugs. One minor, but annoying is the disappearing of the sound. it makes it really hard to play when there is almost zero sound. There are also quite a lot of graphical bugs, not so much in-game as in the menus.

But the most annoying one so far is the disconnect, only had one so far so hoping it isn't a common one. Happend at the final box in a rush match as attacker, having one of the best rush matches ever. All points lost. :(

But other than that I find this so much better than BF3. Can't wait to play it on PS4.

Had an amazing game last night of conquest on Zavod 311. 46 minutes long and we lost by a handful of tickets. Desperate times in the last few seconds. Spawned and sprinted towards D, chucking a grenade randomly as a last ditch effort. Caught up with my own grenade before it exploded. Dead.

I've never played a Battlefield game, or a COD and generally get bored when I do try FPS games (of the single player shooty man variety). I do however absolutely LOVE Day Z.

Am I going to end up hating this or is it worth a try?

COD is very fast based almost arcade like whereas BF is more strategic. At least Rush is anyway.

They're both far better in MP then SP.

SP in either game is tiresome because you feel its all you VS bots on the same MP areas with a story and some boring action set pieces you can't really interact with.

Nice if you've never done them before.

Battlefield used to feel slightly feels less tactile then COD - although thats changed now and is better for it.

I would always choose BF over COD. Its very well done.

CoD is utterly crap compared to Halo let alone BF, its genuinely intense/exciting/scary when playing in a good game with bullets flying and buildings are exploding around you, theres just no comparison, it sickens me that CoD gets so much hype. Plus i was playing yesterday and sniped a long range shot, saw the blood splat on a wall and I was like "hell yeah what a shot", never had that in any other FPS.

Not their strongest review. Their main issues seem to boil down to boring singleplayer, lack of innovation and technical issues at launch, all three not really relevant at all. Complaining about the singleplayer isn't wrong per se, but letting it have any influence on the score would be wrong. The singleplayer is nothing more than a glorified extra, without it the game would still be a complete package anyway. When you would take it away, you couldn't complain about the game lacking in content. The technical issues are a bit of a shame, but won't be there anymore in a couple of weeks so don't matter in the long run. Bit of a non-issue that. And complaining about DICE unwilling to tinker with the formula would only make sense if there was anything becoming stale or having been surpassed by the competition, which isn't the case. EA doesn't tinker with the basics of FIFA either. It's just what the game is.

I bought it earlier. Just waiting for it to download. I might even get to play before bed time!

Spork, come group with me and I'll use you as a meatshield show you the ropes!

*edit*

This could actually be the making of you. Where you are usually so quiet and demure on voice comms, after playing this for half an hour, you'll be effing and jeffing enough to make sailors blush and waking the dead with your shouting.; the mouse that roared like a lion! :D

I've not had a DC or crash yet today (well, not during the game anyway. Been booted from it twice while the counter is whittling down for the next round) so I think it's been improved. Whether it's actually fixed or not, only time will tell.

For PC players have DICE patched the game again at all ? I really want to play it but it's full of crashes and disconnects and quite frankly I don't fancy losing a shitload of XP yet again.

I was fine all last night so I think they've rolled out the server patch to most now. Some downtime expected for an hour this morning for another update as well.

Downloading this now. I'm a series veteran from the old old days (I'll still be shite, mind you), but never really enjoyed BF3 for some reason. I wasn't going to bother with this, but then Battlefield.

I've had lots of weird issues; no disconnects or crash to desktop type ones, but I've had: loss of sound, cross hair disappearing, gun models invisible, awful performance on and off, crashes on the post match lobby / next map loading.

It's definitely flakey. But its also breathtaking when it works. :)
