Ive been thinking of buying it but Ive heard its full of servers issues and it drops FPS real mad. Anyone owns this game that can give me an unbiased opinion?

#2 Posted by MonsieurX (29737 posts) -

It's the same on all systems

I'm just going to play the SP campaign and be done with it.

No, Battlefield 4 is shit.

Besides, why get the system for one game? smh

Duuuude it's awesome on PS4. I have only had a couple of crashes, I have managed to experience few bugs which has made me happy.

The FPS occasionally drops, but it's quite rare and minor when it does, mostly affects single player not multi player.

I highly recommend it.

Nah don't worry it's legit.

I'm a long time BF fan, and I usually get them on pc, but I wanted it to be slightly slower pace this time so I got the PS4 version. Happy to report I did not regret it.

I have a few friends that play BF4 on the PS4 every night for more than a couple hours. I'm assuming it must be pretty damn good b/c I know these guys in real life and they buy a lot of games (too many imho, but that's another story).

Once upon a time,Hitler wanted to dominate the world and eradicate the mean Jews.

He killed himself later on.

I got it from GameFly. Competitive FPS aren't really my thing.

EA seems to finally be getting the kinks worked out of multiplayer. If you want to play BF4, and you don't have a nice PC, the PS4 is definitely the way to go right now. You can finally play a 64 player conquest match, where before it was impossible.

If you wait another month, it will probably be completely stable. The game shipped in an unacceptably sorry state.

I have BF on PS4 and right now and launch was a disaster MP has been fixed but there's stm issues, it is super fun and super fast when you play it and when it doesn't crash and bug out but EA and Dice shot themselves in the foot with this game

I guess if you don't have a PC

I also recommend you get BF4 and upgrade to the $50 premium pack. On THE ONE.

That's not the reason to play Battlefield 4.

I bought it a week before Christmas put in probably more than 50 hours since. I got booted from a game twice, and the server was down a couple times when I logged in but I waited a couple minutes and it was back up. If not for the internet I wouldn't even have thought anything of the problems.

It's a good buy

That's pretty bad advice. Battlefield 4 on the Xbox One has lower resolution, lower framerate, worse aliasing, and an awful sharpening filter that causes "crushed blacks".

It was way worse at launch, but they seem to have most of the game crashes/server crashes under control
