    Great... I loved this game. Hacking road objects while being pursuited was something new and cool with challenge to it. Graphically (with Worse mod) was very nice, I loved to visit all tourism points. Game has a lot of potential. Reply 0

    OK, I confirmed it... this is a game for pussies who canīt handle PvP online shooters because they really suck at aiming and fast paced gameplay. They donīt like to be challenged and find amusing shooting at bots and collect loot just because...

    Iīm a Battlefield player... this pinky game is not for me...

    @Zealuu2

    What you describe (about the Dark Zone) is to me what should be the main premiss of the game. Correct me if Iīm wrong but DZ is just a small slice of the game where REAL players interact right? How many PvP it holds? 5 vs 5? It shouldīve been at least 30 vs 30, or to make it a game reference a 60 vs 60... really... thatīs what Iīm talking about. Massive PvP, lone wolves or factions, betrayal and bounty, faction headquarters attack/defend, environmental colectibles (parts/resources), crafting parts for weapon/outfit upgrades, for gadgets like surveilance drones, etc... Resource gathering for fuel cells so you can upgrade headquarters with more research modules (like in X-COM).

    If the game was like this I would buy it without any doubts...

    @Boomerang

    You are right when you say thereīs a lot of passion and flair from many developers - Iīm thinking about Witcher or Fallout or the upcoming Dishonored 2 and I do really hope this kind of development prevails. Let me just correct your sentence - I started by asking if this kind of game model was becoming a trend :P

    @PSfourskin

    Many gamers buy the new bling, specially if it shines bright like Division seems to shine :) I said this game got my attention, but if itīs a bot shooter Iīm out. Actually it makes my belly ache because gaming is being nerfed and many gamers support this.

    @TekMerc

    People should listen more to what you are saying. Gaming industry, as any industry, is going to max revenue with minimum cost. Fun and challenge are being lost in that process... Shooting bots online is not fun nor challenging no matter how pretty the game looks.

    This co-op trend is a poor excuse to make the game simpler and cheaper to develop.

    Last time I played co-op was in SplinterCell and that was a part of a great singleplayer game, also with multiplayer mode (and also from Ubisoft).

  • Agente_Silva 27/01/2016

    So, a big hype to a co-op online game?! Is this becoming a trend? Next thing you know weīll be shooting NPCīs in Battlefield.

    I know whatīs going on... these kind of "multiplayer" games are waaaay cheaper to develop and implement. Game updates and server maintenance should be much easier to handle, thus making the game more profitable.

    I really hope that Iīm absolutely wrong because this game got my attention, but if itīs like Destiny itīs an absolute no go...

    After disabling motion blur and set the FPS cap to 120 game is running nicely on my PC. Graphic settings are high, nVidia works off. Although it seems after playing for an hour or so the game becomes heavier and slugish... Exiting to desktop and relauching the game seems to solve this. Reply 0

  • Agente_Silva 21/11/2015

    @George-Roper

    Exactly... and that is what I gone wondering after I saw this review! EAīs expecting us to pay the massive STW License and still profit out of this approach to a Battlefront sequel? DICE has so many valuable tools to make this game 10 times better, and they just got left in the drawer.

    Saying itīs a "dip in- dip out" shooter for people who donīt have much time to master a game is not an excuse as well. I play BF4 everyday and I know there is room for everyone there and a lot more content and play time as well.

    Maybe we all agree now this would be better if it was a Starwars reskin for Battlefield (thus making it worth 120€ for Ultimate edition).

    Oh, and regarding Roperīs last post, review is indeed nicely mingled with the rest of the crowd. The constraint tone and the bitterness out of this review are real.

    Impressive how Square Enix set the stage when it first rebooted Tomb Raider back in 2013. Graphically it continues to impress and introducing new elements to next gen games - just like Neebs and friends said: "Next-Gen is all about hair" xD Still, just like Allmokrane mentions, it seems some core elements from previous titles are left in back stage.

    On the other hand, DICE is releasing another new map to Battlefield4 - a remake of Dragon Valley in all its glory (and while youīre at it, they even mixed Noshaar Canals container yard in what used to be Alpha flag in BF2 Dragon Valley). All this after Operation Outbreak release, 1 month ago (?) with the feedback of BF4 community.

    @dogmanstaruk

    The opposite of complex doesnīt have to be necessarly dumb. Some people say Battlefiled is a complex game... it isnīt, but it can be. Depends wich class and playstyle you choose. Battlefiled can be really simplistic and acessible - specially if you spawn camp with AA :P Thing is it has the ground to evolve to a completely diferent game extending itīs game life for years.

    George Roperīs view is everything I wanted in Battlefront. I actually posted something similar yesterday. I totally understand his "ranting" about this simpleton game that couldīve been huge and still pleasing everyone.

    This game is underpants and profit.

    edit: oh, and the negs on Roperīs post... I guess it is too complex to have imagination these days.

    @Drunk-Si

    exactly this... you see, when someone mentions "fun" I can only see myself laughing at a good joke, a funny situation or the JOY OF ACCOMPLISHMENT. What Drunk-Si mentions is exactly this last aspect of fun. The joy of gradually being better at something. something that rewards you, firstly because youīre not diying that lot no more.

    That feeling is being lost along the way in favour of "acessibility". Bullcrap, that word only means that itīs a game for people who want results out of no effort. So why would DICE put any effort on the games they make?

    Where is the "fun" in this game? Listening to pew pew over STW audio files and some random STW original soundtracks?

    yet another edit: games are made to sell; hype sells; good games last too many time and people hold to it too many time making them not buying any other thing.

    I wished this was Battlefield4 on Starwars skin but it is not. Itīs not even Hardline on Starwars skin.

    Iīm sure DICE had a lot of work capturing every visual aspect from Starwars in order to comply to the STW license they paid for... other than that itīs as instant as adding cold water to it.

    Unless many features are added itīs an absolute NO GO. Canīt see why they extended Beta. One hour playing the game is enough to understand itīs a casual selling game.

    edit: there are so many cool features that would make this one epic massive multiplayer shooter. If Battelfield is today a reference of its own itīs because it has many things right. Deviating from that could only mean the developer is not willing to provide so many resources on making and supporting the game. Imagine an AT-AT available for riding, you would have to climb some ladder to get to the top hatch. Then an enemy trying to reach the top of your AT-AT to open the hatch and drop a grenade inside, but he gets killed by one team mate of yours. Or you could have proximity scan and be aware of them and come outside to shot them. I can also imagine some team mates riding on top of that AT-AT with you... so many cool possibilities. Now apply this to X-Wings; A-Wings; Tie-Fighter; Tie-Bombers; Tie-Interceptors; Snow speeders.

    DICE could do this but itīs much easier as it is now... and some people will pay full price...!

    My guilty pleasure? Humm... SimCity5? Where I have more than 1000 hours? My opinion is, itīs not a crappy game at all :P

    edit: from the short vídeo it seems they are putting a lot of effort and listened to playerīs feedback. That must be a good thing and for that they got my attention :P The "more freedom" vs "linear paths" is exactly the better change they couldīve made. Flanking could allow for a more Splinter Cell approach :)

    Probably because you havenīt played BF4 enough (or even at all). If you did youīd find after 2 and half years still new weapons to use, gadgets and even tactics.

    From my experience running 5760*1080 (3*24 inch displays) for more than a year I say youīll need a considerable amount of beef. Initially I was running it with a HD7970 in medium/high graphic setting... Not totally satisfied I purchased a second handed R9280X and Xfired it. Scalability is pratically 90% on FPS count so I uped a notch or two making me playing about everything in high/ultra - BF4 runs flawlessly between 100 FPS and 75 depending on the action.

    Make sure your PSU is a bit over 700W. Playing on 3 screens is clearly an enthusiast choice. Usually and rightousely the main concerne is graphic quality. A wide screen display gives a lot of ambience thou and, in BF4 is awesome for attack chopper action ;)
