At the end of the day, if you’re not planning on picking up the next-gen versions of the games, this current-gen iteration appears pretty polarizing.
I'm having alot of fun with the game. The graphics looks muddy and bland but I didn't expect much from a beta anyways but I'm sure once the game comes out on the 360, they'll have that HD download again and the game will look better. I'm going to use the the 360 as the tutorial where I can learn the controls and how each map looks and feel so when I get it again for the X1 I'll be ahead of the curve.
My impression is that the current-gen console version is a waste of money.
Pretty much... I know they have an install base and all, but the current versions are clearly playing tag-along to the what's hitting shelves a month later.
my impression is that BATTLEFIED has become literally COD :(
Its not literally COD. With that said it has took a step closer because people have started quickscoping :/
Powerups, lack of indepth stats after match, extremely dumbed down sniping. It's cod.
Tanks, jets, jeeps, commander, squads, levelution... Its not COD. first off power ups = COD? Thats like saying Halo+sprint=COD. Lack of indepth stats after a match? I would say thats good because people care way too much about stats and K/D today. But your final point is correct, sniping is extremely easy now. I can only assume its because the commander/AC-130 in the full game will just smite them. I'll need to play the full game to find out :)
If a game has a scope to quick they will wuick scope it. Should we take scooes out?
@dcj Oh you presented such a clever and thought provoking flaw to my claim that quickscoping is in BF4/s ... Dont twist my words -_- If you aim with a weapon labeled as a "sniper rifle" with a scope over 4x, while being shot at with an automatic AR, Carbine, PDW or LMG and get the kill within two sconds of aiming, you are quickscoping You can even remove the part where your being shot at and and point still stands.
Unlike CoD however... Battlefield games takes 2-4 years to make ;) Unlike "Rehash of doggy"...
Thing is, BF4 has alot of problems that BF3 had. One of them is not being able to reload your weapon and if you are lucky. After a few secs it will load the numbers saying you have ammo. I been seeing alot now that parts of the game seem to lag, like a wall no longer being there an comes back. Or the worst, snipers that seem like they leave the game but come back standing somewhere else. The thing I hate is that it seems if you show a rpg at a tank or even at a person close range, it is most likely will fail and not kill them.
I find the beta keeps crashing my PS3, apart from that it is all very fun to play, well apart from the new helicopter controls
Yeah, it's happened to my 360 also so I guess it's across all consoles.
Beta looks awful but so far i'm enjoying it. Recon class is a blast ;)
I was gonna get this, but after playing the beta. I stick to killzone shadowfall.
Personally it feels to me like that made some major fundamental changes to the shooting mechanics. Recoil/spray patterns.. I have over a 3.0 kill death ration in bf3, (no vehicle whoring either) and I'm sitting on a 1.5 kdr in the beta at the moment. I starting to figure it out and put some good rounds in now though. I personally thought bf4 on current gen actually looked worse then bf3, but you really do need to take into account this is a 3 month old beta.. I plan on getting it for ps3 as well as upgrading to ps4 on day 1. Can't wait, but to me, it doesn't feel like bf3.5, it feels like they took a great game, (bf3) and added and built onto it.. It feels different enough to me, to not call it a glorified bf3 add on.
Agreed. I can't get the ps4 till janurary so the ps3 version will hold me over. Hope I can still upgrade by then.
