I been reading a ton of reviews that complain about game being broken and unfinished.. Although, I wouldn't be surprised by that because it seems like it was being rushed in order to compete with the likes COD Ghost.

It currently has issues, which DICE is actively working to fix. Unless you're a big BF fan , wait until it's on sale during Black Friday.

A woman informs me it's the best battlefield game she has ever played.

She didn't play 2142, though.

To me there will never be a game worth $60, which is why I never buy games when they first release.

Hell no. A very high percentage of games are not worth that price.

Thankfully GMG has been having pretty good deals on pre orders recently. BF4 was $48

Personally to me it's not, I want to get it for $30. Without a half decent single player, the value falls to me. I'm not a huge multiplayer guy but I do want to try the 32 vs 32 for awhile.

I got it for PS3 and Im having fun playing with some army buddies. That's what these games are about for me. Is it the "best" version of BF4? Guess not. If I played that version would I have the best time? No, because my friends that I w2ant to play with are some where else.

Oh it looks like they went to a cashback/credit deal. The week before launch they had a 20% off code

No yearly released shooter is worth $60. I wouldn't pay more than $30 for it.

I guess it's a good thing that BF4 isn't a yearly release

if you're committed to playing the MP and being a team player then it's well worth it, if you're just going to dabble and spend most your time playing COD then don't bother

I didn't buy it on my pc because i friend my mobo and waiting for rma but i have a couple of friends currently playing it and its a clusterf****. So much server and game crashes its almost unplayable... On thread i think its worth buying simply because its BF and BF doesn't need reasons. Personally i would NEVER buy it on current gen because for the piss poor port they've made should cost $19.99 and not $60. So buy it on pc/ps4 and maybe x1

I don't really see why people keep saying this. It looks just as much a sequel as any other game out there.

Why do people ask if a game is worth the money being asked? I don't get it. To some it's more than worth it and to others it's not worth $5.

The quality of the game doesn't make a difference on someone's opinion. Many are predisposed to have a certain opinion towards something.

Multiplayer is fine. It does have some issues, but many have already been fixed. The game is gorgeous on Ultra. If you have a rig that can run it, I'd pull the trigger. Multiplayer is a blast.

They already fixed the issue of not being able to queue for servers. Yes, some people are still having connectivity issues but I'm sure it will be fixed within the week.

Considering I have logged 140 hrs into the BF3 multiplayer alone, I would say that without a doubt that it is probably the best value I'll be getting this year.

It's very much like an expansion to Battlefield 3. I have a hard time considering this a great NEW Battlefield. The leap between 3-4 is very small compared to other Battlefield games. It's also really buggy on PC. I'd wait.

Now they just need to fix the game crashes, the server crashes, and the wonky next code, plus the usual round of minor bugs

Yep. Conquest is better than ever and Domination is awesome too.

Right now, no. The game has too many bugs and crashes. And if you have BF3 Premium, then you are better off waiting for a good deal.

PC version has massive issues right now, i say stay away until some improvement is seen.

I suggest finding a different site to this one for a serious discussion.

Just like I said would happen. DICE just suck at making games.

That's why I won't buy any more games made from them, until they stop rushing shat out the door.

If the last min beta wasn't a red flag for people, then all this bad press should send them up.

Your best off waiting 6 months to buy the game. That's around how long it takes them to fix major issues.

Changed the properties of all the weapons, made changes to gameplay, got new modes, new campaign, and got better graphics. Not sure what else you'd need; since that's more than quite a few games get.

Don't buy it now. It's bug-ridden on all platforms at the moment. Wait until they are fixed and/or a sale.
