Brilliant even on old PC.,
This review is from: Battlefield 4 - Standard Edition (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
I am a great fan of first person shooters and have played all of the Battlefield, Call Of Duty and Medal Of Honour releases over the years.
I've just completed the Battlefield 4 single player campaign after receiving the game for Christmas from my son who bought it from Amazon. I was a bit dubious about trying to play it on my old PC as each new game demands a more powerful machine. I built my current PC back in 2008 using an Abit IP35-Pro motherboard with Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 overclocked to 3.15Mghz running Widows 7 HP 64bit. I've recently fitted 8Gb G.Skill DDR2 RAM and an HIS Radeon HD 7850 iPower IceQ Turbo with 4Gb of GDDR5 SDRAM PCI-Express Graphics Card with latest 13-12 Catalyst drivers to try and squeeze some more life out of my old rig.
I installed the game and maxed it out on Ultra settings expecting it to hang, be jerky or ultimately give a BSOD. Not a problem, I've glided through the game, enjoying some of the most realistic gameplay to date. The choice at the end was a surprise so after going one way I went back and restarted the mission so I could choose differently.......! I must admit I was a bit disappointed I seemed to complete the campaign so quickly but it was great fun.
Multiplayer is a breeze on a fast fibre connection too.
If I can play this on a six year old system then it shouldn't be a problem for anyone using more up to date machines.
