Just downloaded China Rising for premium
on 5 December 2013
PLEASE NOTE YOU NEED THE BASE (BF4) GAME TO WANT TO GET PREMIUM
Today is the 5th December 2013 as a Premium member I have been granted early access to the China Rising DLC here are some really brief pros and cons
PROS - A new variety of jungle maps brings a change to the BF4 setting, the maps are big and vast allowing for different flanking routes and entry also now without the blue filter of BF3 the maps look amazing and I am even playing on low settings (for competitive play).We get about 5 new weapons and more assignments and more game modes like Air superiority , THE DLC WORKS FINE for me ,I only crashed out once out of the many games I played but crashed out when I was playing the base game, meaning the base game still needs work. But for the 1st DLC I like the maps because it brings back the bad company 2 days of jungle warfare etc, To me its off to a good start meaning right now it feels worth it as its a part of the game not broken.
CONS - Not everyone likes huge maps hence why Armoured kill overall was the lowest rated BF3 DLC map pack,because the maps are big it means vehicle heavy maps which even in vehicles takes some time to travel from point to point. This one is important please note I have played all different game modes on different maps and what I can say is not all the maps are balanced for all the game modes. I am mainly a rush player but because rush has become flank heaven for defenders and cluster battles for attackers the maps do not flow correctly all the time. I have had more fun playing conquest,but bare in mind this is when you have the right server settings. There are no levelutions in the maps as far as I know,im not a levelution fan but for some it may be important.
Sorry for being short
But you will ask,IS IT WORTH IT? for me right now,YES it is,It's a good expansion and unbroken part of the game but then if you think about it you will be getting more maps,more everything from buying premium I have been very pleased with this DLC and may rate this higher than the next DLC as the next one is second assualt which is the BF3 maps. But ladies and gents the maps look stunning.
