Will Battlefield 4 Impress or Be Just Another FPS?

Gi - Taking the time to watch the entire Battlefield 4 demo posted by Electronic Arts and DICE does take diligence; and while there are some impressive feats within the trailer, it leaves much to desire from a title that is being so heavily publicized as a next generation game. Of course, the video is running at an impressive 60 frames per second and shows off much of what the Frostbite Engine 3 can do. Still, several rumors surrounding the next generation of consoles not having as large a leap forward from what its predecessors have been capable of seem accurate, which can be a tough pill to swallow. (Battlefield 4, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Well it does kinda look like BF 3.5--hopefully DICE will reveal more at E3.

Here's hoping that it isn't BF 3.5

BF3 did rile a lot of the series faithful the wrong way with its removal of the Commander mode, increased accessibility (i.e more 'casualisation'- IR scope, OP shotguns, doritos etc) and other things such as that almighty supernova of a sun, base capture placements on the map, reduced destructiblity etc.

Commander mode really needs to come back I think. It was such a brilliant feature and its removal really didn't set well with BF3.

how can it be anything more than a fps? That is what it is! You can add more emotional expression to it maybe via story and graphical facial quality, But that is that. The new generation of games imo need a drastic change of player input and output via a new controller device? Vr anyone? But its not happened, maybe in the future? Until they radically upgrade the actual way we play the game and observe it through the senses, dont expect anything of a stellar difference.

Just another first person shooter. The gameplay trailer showed that. It was generic and lame.... Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem, Xenoblade 2, Thief 4, Dark Souls 2, Batman Arkham Origins, Watch Dogs ect so many other games I rather spend my money on. Screw EA and DICE.

Comparing a modern military shooter with RPG games because fuck logic right?
Theyellowflash30  +   454d ago
Has nothing to do with logic. I said there are other games I rather spend my money on. It's my own personal opinion. There is no comparisons going on.

It's a great looking game but when you look past the graphics it still has dumb enemy A.I.

in the scene where the building falls a missile is launched at an enemy hiding behind a wall, when the wall crumbles he is still standing there.

BF3 was an awful single player because of dumb AI and this is more of the same.

They need to evolve more then just graphics

Demos are rarely played in 'difficult/hard' setting.
But as it looks now I agree...

Haters gonna hate. Colonels gonna claim their dogtags.

ps. Where's my shitbucket?

no offense to FPS fans, but the genre hasn't change much since the 007 for N64.

People saying BF4 is generic so how does Killzone SF gets a pass. That footage was just as generic as BF4.

What's wrong
With being another's FPS, has the platform er changed dramaticly......no, has the driving sim changed dramaticly......no has the adventure game changed dramaticly .....no. You can see where I am going with this, it seems the FPS genre is the only one required to rewrite history with every new game. I can't wait for bf4 and for the next cod.
LightofDarkness  +   455d ago
Yes, it will be just another FPS, but it will be good at it.

As the saying goes "If you can't be good, be good at it".

I'm sure it will be a very fun game with long legs, like BF3, for the people who enjoy that kind of thing, and it will be remarkably good looking. And there's nothing terribly wrong with that.

Plus, this is now another cash-crop for EA. It's the stuff that let's them fund smaller and riskier titles, or more likely, fund their next gargantuan disaster like TOR or Sim City.
delboy  +   455d ago
Depends on how much is EA gonna milk it will extra content.
Typical-Guy  +   455d ago
Well, everything is just another thing.

On topic, I expect a good story. I liked the story in Bad Company 1-2. It wasn't so serious and was FUNNY! BF3 was just lost between Medal of Honor and CoD!

There is no way frostbite 3 is a new engine it looks like 2 with a few tweaks. Visually it unimpressive in the video and no ones play bf for its campaign. This game should have been bc3 or 2143
Xenial  +   454d ago
Looks as if many people have already forgotten about Far Cry 3. If that didn't bring some potential to the FPS genre, then i don't know what will.
Npugz7  +   454d ago
Too hard to tell yet! We need to see some multiplayer footage first! I'm not worried! Dice never disappoints me!
GiantFriendlyCrab  +   454d ago
under EA they are, BF2 is still king of online military shooters
josephayal  +   454d ago
The wheel is still spinning
