Following on from Battlefield 3 was always going to be tough, but somehow Battlefield 4 manages to take what we loved about the third game and improve on it in pretty much every way you could imagine. Dice and EA did a phenomenal job with this and even the lesser versions that are on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 are a ton of fun

Blow It All Sky High

I want to start by talking about the multiplayer. Epic is a word that is thrown around a great deal, but that is honestly the best way to describe this game in terms f its multiplayer. Everything that we loved in the third game is here in 4 and then some! The stakes just feel so much bigger in Battlefield 4. No matter what game mode you are playing, be it conquest or rush. Each map has something that makes it special. Be it an incoming typhoon, night turning to day or a giant hotel crumbling in the middle of the city.

Once again, Battlefield shows that it is the thinking person's first person shooter. Using the strengths of your class and actually playing as part of a team is not just the key to victory. It is also the most fun way to play the game in my opinion. Dice have been very clever with Battlefield 4 (and 3) in terms of the leveling up and it makes it feel like you are always close to getting something new to help you out in the heat of battle.

Yes, Commander!

Commander mode returns from Battlefield 2 and it is awesome. This is a mode I never spent a ton of time in before, but I love it here. Playing as the commander you have a bird's eye view on the action and you can instruct your soldiers on what to do. It is a very rewarding relationship and more often than not as long as your Intel is right, your soldiers will be victorious!

More Like Dark Of The Moon Than Bumblebee

I always compare the Battlefield campaigns to Michael Bay movies and that once again rings true here. There is a war between the USA, China and Russia and I kind of get what they were going for in terms of the game's story. The problem is, it just really falls flat. You do not care about the characters and it just goes from one set piece to another. Do not get me wrong the game looks like a million bucks, but it is certainly like they went for style over substance here, but the problem is the style is not that great either.

Despite the very disappointing single-player campaign. Battlefield 4 is a truly tremendous first person shooter. The multiplayer that this offers is not just some of the best in the Battlefield series, but some of the best I have ever played in a first person shooter. The game is fun to play, has a lot of depth and it looks great too!
