Battlefield 4 Experience

So.. Tried the single player, toptip: Don't lower your graphics settings yet... That first bit of intro is a KILLER. The FPS seems to triple once you meet the two dudes. This almost feels like a tech demo...

First few thoughts, in the bit where you're in the streets and it's wet.. GTA V on xbox (when it rains), looks better... This reminds me very much of CoD.. not impressed really. The ship internals look, stunning however. The "press and hold Q" thing doesn't work for me at all, nothing happens, guessing it's a bug/driver issue.

Multiplayer, feels like a proper battlefield game again, I am very happy so far. So much stuff to choose from!! Just looks and feels great, so much more dynamic.

Jets are way-easy-mode to fly now, However the god damned crosshair is no where near the impact point for bullets. Turn-rate is stupid (not unexpected). Haven't flown an attack chopper yet, but if it's anything like the beta that will be fine, also easy-mode.

Scout chopper is much more nimble now which is great.

In-vehicle, vehicle taking hit sounds are FAR too quiet, you can be being shot at, losing health and not know it at all until you go pop (could be a bug but wtf!?)

Quite laggy, but not unexpected, and haven't found what I would call a high-quality server to try it on yet.

On the whole? I'm very happy, looking forward to Rank 10 and being a commander again.

As a squad leader I'm happy to ask for, and subsequently obey Commander's orders and I'm SO pleased that's back Really gives a sense of someone pushing everything in the right direction.

All in all, my initial views are good. Looking forward to trying this on 780's instead of 580's

Edit: Yes, I VPN'd, no I don't care, I did it for 3 and am glad I did it for 4 to get some of the SP out the way while server-side stuff gets smoothed out. The whole "You'll be banned" is retarded and at best, a scare tactic to try and level off server-load. Nothing came of it last time, I highly doubt it will next time. I am however, not responsible for your game if you DO VPN and DO get banned/hacked. You do it under your own volition.

Based on what you've played and seen so far, would you say that for a complete BF n00b, its worth the ~£65 investment, ive not played BF series and im unsure whether id enjoy it, i wont be spending hours and hours on it as reality seems to get in the way!

Just grab the base game for ~£30 you only need to spend the extra £30 on the Premium service if you want all the expansion packs coming out over the next two years. You can always buy it at a later date if you like the game and decide you want the extra maps.

I got my key from here

http://www.cdkeys.com/pc/games/battl...-cd-key-origin

You get a 5% discount if you like their FB page as well so that will bring the price to £28.40

EDIT Price has gone up since I posted ^^^^

Glad I used a VPN as well, the SP was actually pretty good.

The MP for me is to laggy and I was having crashes so i'm waiting for a patch before I jump into the MP again.

Get the base game first, don't worry about premium yet.

It just feels on the whole, like a better battlefield game all round again. BF3 felt like a bit of a dirty betrayal.. This feels so much more like it's back on track.

if you enjoy team-based fps, I recommend it.

Really want this game. I'm a massive battlefield fan and have been since BF2. My only problem is money at the moment :'(
