Battlefield 4 for PS4 is a beautiful mess (2D-X)

Battlefield 4 had its share of problems. When the fourth installment of the always-entertaining military shooter franchise was released on November 15th , there was the expectation that the game would work. Well, maybe not flawlessly, but that it would playable. Battlefield 4, after some work, is actually a very good game. (Battlefield 4, PS4) -

Mine ain't that bad. Am I lying?

Mine isn't that bad either. I am on the Xbox One and only have had a couple of issues since the last patch in January.

On the PS4 the new problem is when u grab the bomb in mode Defuse it will mark u with the bomb. The other team knows your every move.. Fuckin annoying.

And on the Xbone its an ugly 720p mess. lol Actually it's ugly for both..some days this game works flawlessly and others it's just a big old crapfest. Check out some of the posts made for some of the issues people have to suffer with for this game. It's not pretty.

And I thought the PS4 version was bad...yeah I'm going to stop complaining about a lag a few crashes. lol

[Xbox One] In my opinion, we are still in Battlefield 4 Beta testing. Here's a series of glitches still prevalent after the latest patch.

It it makes you feel better its still twitchy on PC too.

I bought every BF game since BF 1942, BF4 will be my last as they don't deserve to be successful any more.

Maybe your connection is not up to it.Even if a developer makes the best net code in the world if your connection is weak nothing is going to save you from LAG.This will happen in P2P servers but also on dedicated servers.

I have 100mb down internet. It lags and jitters like a crack head jones'n for a hit. Its the game not peoples internet.
thehitman  +   661d ago
@Swish maybe its other people lagging and not you. Does your own screen jump or does other people jump and jitter? I have no problems on BF4 other then conquest mode which I believe is too huge for DICE's own good. I think 32v32 with tanks, tanks, water, buildings falling etc... is too ambitious and think that is the source of the headache for DICE and gamers.

People expect everything to just magically work when there are so many things to take into account that can cause shit to just fuck up.

Just because you're having all these problems doesn't mean everyone else is. I play about 6 hrs a day and I maybe see a handful of lag or any bugs. The game is nowhere near as bad as everyone is trying to make it sound.

Lol even tho its a buggy mess i keep going back to it. Its a beautiful mess. Ghost is just plain trash imo. I sold it for $35 :/
Stapleface  +   661d ago
It works fine for me, that is until I get an error code. That is getting pretty old. You play a few rounds, things are going good, no lag, hits are being detected like they should. Then BAM, kicked out of the game right to the ps4 report error screen. Love the game, minus that. I would play it a lot more if I didn't get pissed off every time. If I could go a few session with out that happening it would be nice. But it's every time I try to play.

I love the online but it can get frustrating sometimes. I swear i shot people with a full mag but they kill me with 2 shots. i know the other day i unloaded on this dudes head before he went down haha. sometimes gerenades dont seem to do any damage too but i get killed by mini ones with full health. just one of them. anyway this game is 100 times better than call of duty online. i tried to go back to that and it just wasnt the same. traded it in for tomb raider.

Sold it yesterday got mine money back :D

"Of course it took DICE a few months to fix all the glitches and deliver the Battlefield 4 that somewhat matches the pre-release hype."

This guy obviously hasn't played the game anytime recently. I even wounder if he even played it period. This whole article sounds like a big EA PR sheet.

I can easily prove with some recorded ps4 footage the game is a bugged out mess STILL! If the people at Dice are seriously patting themselves on the back with the intention of believing the game is fixed. They need to lay off the sauce then.

The campaign is pretty buggy as well. Just weird things like floating guns and the like.
bumnut  +   661d ago
No true BF fan cares about campaign, they only started adding campaign mode when they started releasing BF on consoles to tempt the COD crowd.

I am not a 'true' Battlefield fan, but congratulations on coming across badly. I am sure that will serve you well going ahead.

Coming across badly? Just stating a fact that Bf never had campaign historically.
angelsx  +   661d ago
After the last update on ps4 my singleplayer progress has been deleted for 10 times.Rubber banding,zero health and bad net code is still there.Also my game crashed(blue screen) few times.
1nsomniac  +   661d ago
I had issues back in November on the PS4 when it launched that were quickly fixed & I never had any problems since until the new patch that was released last week 1.09 I think. Since then it has kicked me out with an error code twice. Both times at the start of my first game as I've loaded it up but then it works fine again after I start it back up.
Avernus  +   661d ago
The rubber banding that BF4 has is just ridiculous at this point. At launch, I can understand, but by now stuff like that should have been fixed. I still feel I got ripped off with this game.

Months after release and the game still performs like crap. Thing is, it performs bad on every platform as far as I know. LOL @ this "player appreciation" month they're having. They appreciate taking our money for a broken game.

A BF4 that crashes every 5 minutes is still the best multiplayer ps4 game by far
Soldierone  +   661d ago
Game is too frustrating for me to play. I send entire clips into guys facing opposite direction just to hit a lag spike and randomly die.... Its hit markers galore for me due to the lag, half the time I can be shooting point blank and not even get hit markers....
dcj0524  +   661d ago
The 0HP glitch is gonna make me kill someone. I've screenshoted 57 0HP glitches since Janurary 14th. Its ridiculous.
cyclindk  +   661d ago
At least some devs admitted it was rushed and was no fault of the hardware...
2v1  +   661d ago
the glitches right now that are fucking it up for me are the endless black screen between maps and the 0 health shown when i shoot some one and they turn back and kill me.

bf4 on xbox one is the beta tester.
LoveSpuds  +   661d ago
The only thing I have noticed regularly is the 0HP but for the longest time I just assumed they killed me first and had just about survived - I didn't realise it was a bug.

Other than this I absolutely adore this game, having been a BF player since 1942 and putting hundreds of hours into BF3 on PC I can honestly say I have as much fun on BF4 on my PS4 that I have ever had on previous versions.

I rarely have lag or problems with hits registering, I absolutely hose people for the most part and playing such a nice looking version on my big screen sitting back on couch just makes it the ultimate BF experience for me personally.

I am sorry some are having problems but judging by the amount of players online at any one time I can only assume I am not the only one loving the game.
