From its humble beginnings in 2002 to the wonders of modern-day technology, the Battlefield series has come a long way in 11 years. And now with the release of Battlefield 4, it's breathtaking just how far the series has progressed in 11 years.
Ha! Man I miss bf2 and bf2142. Something about the slower gameplay, bigger maps, only spawning on squad leaders, 8 man squads, relying heavily on the commander, no regen health, only resupplying/repairing jets/helis by flying over the landing strip, no regen tank and apc armor. But bf3/bf4 are still nice!!! Insane graphics and glad to see commander return. Im having a blast. Hope to see a bf2143 though, nothing like that titan game mode.
I don't like this graphical evolution of battlefield if it consists of very short single player campaigns.. . Not even considering buying bf4 anymore with a lame 4hrs campaign.
If you're not going to buy BF4 because of the short campaign then you're not really into Battlefield. No serious BF player would boycott their purchase because of a lame single player campaign. ALL of the replay value is in the thousands of hours you sink into the multiplayer.
I miss BFBC2.
Seriously, we need BC3 ASAP!
I Really want BF2143 next, and some BF:MC maps remade!
Great video!! Definitely remember the old days of battlefield lol...brought back memories
64 players full Battlefield experience available on the PC since 2002. 64 players full Battlefield experience will be available for the first time on console on November 15 2013. Greatness have been awaiting for over a decade it seems.
and the overall de-evolution of the series with bf3/4
id rather bf 3/4 the rest of my life then any cod game after mw2.
Why you talking about cod? I'm just saying that previous bf were better, not comparing or anything. I'd rather, like, AC IV than bf3/4 or any cod post mw2 (yeah I abandoned cod in mw2 too lol), they are both in the wrong way, there is no fps that I'm interested.
More like BF3 and the BF4 redeems battlefield back to the BF2 days.
Hmm I'm quite confused. Did you mean better controls, graphics, sound, atmosphere, gameplay, etc etc de-evolution? I recently tried going back to 1942, bf2 and oh lord they felt odd. Even BC2 feels a bit outdated now. To me high concentration of entertainment in limited time is what games should try and achieve today. So that we can do other things in real life with our time. BF3 onwards they have gone this route and I'm glad.
andrewer, I kind of agree. I'm really enjoying BF4, but Its obvious to me that DICE (read "EA") is really gunning straight for the CoD crowd with the newer additions to BF4, like the field upgrades (which are essentially the same as "perks" from CoD), all the rediculous camo and paint patterns for soldiers and vehichles, and the fact that the new console controller layout is the EXACT carbon copy of the CoD controller layout.. presumable so It will be easier for CoD noobs to adapt. It's sad, really. CoD already does what it does, and BF does what it does. But the two games have always presented such a dramatically different playstyle... now I'm afraid that the more CoD-like Battlefield becomes, the more lame the game will become. I'm sorry, but I don't need some Nazi whitepower loving 12 year old douche trying to 360 no-scope me from the top of a mountain. Battlefield players don't want players like that in their squad or on their team!
and with ever evolution my wallet cries "stop!". new cpu new gpu or gpu's new power supply etc etc. yeah new graphics are nice but the game play in the end is what matters.
All I can say of BF4 so far on PS3 is that the game is FFFFFFFUUUUUUUGGGGGGLLLLLLYYYY Y!! Not once have I yet to say "Wooooowwww!!", stare in awe, or drop my jaw. The game has really low textures, I can't tell if there's a mirror or not, and my character won't even jump over a small obstacle or a window. No, I have to move back, and sprint then jump. -_- At least the game looks way better on PC and next-gen consoles as reported.
Why would you even buy it for the ps3 lol? I get my ps4 in janurary so I'm holding out.
GenericNAme, - I'm totally with you, man! I got it for ps3 and it looks like a dried turd. Obviously worse in multiplayer, as some textures fail to load at all...I'm really confused, because BF3 looked AWESOME on ps3! (BF4 seriously looks way worse than 3). Seriously, this game has graphics like Homefront! Honestly, I seriously think its a conspiracy theory that DICE nerfed the console graphics on purpose, just so the ps4/XB1 version looks that much better to people ;-) @ dcj0524 - I considered waiting to get BF4 until I get my ps4, but as such a huge BF fan, I just didn't have the will power... especially since i still haven't pre-ordered my Ps4, and with pre-orders already sold out everywhere in the US, It may be some time until I get my hands on one.
Seriously?!! A :23 second title screen? How slow does OP read?
