Battlefield 4 PS4 Review | IGN

On PlayStation 4, Battlefield 4 suffers from a handful of irritating launch issues. The 1.50 firmware update caused a number of issues. The core gameplay is unaffected -- it's still great -- but limited servers, unreliable connectivity at press time is frustrating. (Battlefield 4, PS4) 8.5/10

Ign should rewrite this part: The 1.50 firmware update caused a number of issues. this patch activate the online gameplay so it cannot cause number of issues to something that was not there in the first place

Leave it to IGN to blame the PS4 for the lackluster online of this game.... Funny how "sony broke it" is allowed here, yet every other game is working fine.....

They knew about the patch for months, and they knew exactly what it would do, why did they not test their game to make sure it works?

I swear the main editor - Steve Butts is starting to sway alot towards MS. Even the site "redesign" is being sponsored by Microsoft.

Granted - Sony did help refurbish thier TV with brand new Sony TVs, but IGN was QUICK to point out that consoles were bricking despite not getting the whole story. Even the original story author was "the staff at ign".

$$$$ talks, BS walks. Hence Call of Duty versions 1 to 934,202,349 will always get a 8-10 score.

The online component of this game is completely garbage for my PC too. It crashes ALL THE TIME. I returned it because of it.

It's not a PS4 issue and I expect journalists to do more research before they falsify their reports/reviews on a product.

Honestly you really can't even take ANY reviews from these sites seriously anymore. I bought BF4 thinking it was a good game and to my surprise, it was in complete shambles.

.... Meanwhile I buy Killzone and Knack for the PS4 and GOLLY GEE, they are both FUN as HELL and run PERFECT! Hmmmm... interesting. So two games which should of underwhelmed actually overwhelmed and the game which should of overwhelmed (BF4) actually underwhelmed.

This should be a lesson to everyone. Don't Bite the Hand that feeds you. You cannot take reviews seriously anymore.

I agree. A Game should be reviewed by it's merits on day 1.

If a developer get's bad scores, then it's their fault they released a half-ass game.

I wouldn't mind a re-review 30+ days later but it shouldn't affect the initial score.

GTAV online also got away with this same BS when it first launched.

I bought killzone instead of this, and asssin's (which both are awesome through remote play...but asssassin's is far from next gen).

Don't worry PC version of BF4 is also crazy suffering. Be patient:) don't regret the purchase, just play through campaign and wrack in them points until online works well. They officially announced a patch to come next week or so:)

i cant even finish single player its so broken. also have yet to play conquest cause it wont let me. but....game is cool as shit. definetly going to tough this out
Omegasyde  +   813d ago
Try out Blacklight. It's free 2 play, and atleast tie you over when Dice finally fixes the game.
Soldierone  +   813d ago
Battlefield never works on consoles for at least a month or two. Thats why I never bothered to play it yet, just got stuck with it in my bundle. It'll be fixed maybe after Christmas....

Conquest mode was disabled for being unplayable. I wanted to try that mode out

Last I heard the game works like crap on all systems, PC included. Blaming the FW for "a number of issues"?... smh.

8.5 for a game that is unplayable...cool
HighResHero  +   813d ago
Nice safe score there.
BlingBlaine  +   813d ago
The game is absolutely unplayable with the deleting of save data and server crashes, but still manages to get an 8.5!?!?

And its sonys fault that bf4 wont work on pc OR ps4? IGN as usual.....straight trash.

Oh let me predict the xbone will get a better score too.
