This review is from: Battlefield 4 (PC DVD) - Limited Edition (DVD-ROM)
Didn't buy the game from here but still deserves a review.
BF4 is most definitely the best shooting game out this year, and despite the mishaps we had at launch they have managed to fix 90% of the problems very quickly, don't bother listening to people ranting on how the game crashes every 10 minutes, have played nearly a hundred hours since launch and have only had around 5 crashes, most of them were probably my fault anyway.
Game is runing well on my gtx 660, can run game on almost max settings at well over 60 fps (could run max but at 45fps), my only major problem is that headcamping is still in the game but not much you can do about that, and the netcode and hit detection, other than this it is probably one of the best games this year.
Definately worth the £25 price tag.

Every system differs to the other. If you don't get many crashes doesn't mean others will get the same results.
The game is not worth it in my opinion, I don't have the same enjoyment playing it the way I did with Battlefield 3, I don't see it as a worthy successor really.

people are exaggerating how often you crash, people on pc, which this version is for it is running very well, it doesnt really matter what system it is for the game works unless you have a £300 gaming pc(which probably runs no game well) , as you can see from how many people are playing it.
" I don't have the same enjoyment playing it the way I did with Battlefield 3", you can't play it the same way as bf3, its anew engine and a whole new netcode, you cant expect it to feel the same, if you put in the time you get used to it, and it honestly is a better game.

Mr A Atkin. Rubbish. The games specs are clearly shown. In fact the graphics are massively scalable. My PC is 5 years old now, and my only upgrade has been to increase my RAM to 6GB last month, and it is still well over the minimum specs and can play the game comfortably on moderate settings. If you're getting crashes then don't blame the game, blame your equipment.

The crashes are not what makes this game poor although I am sure it is really frustrating for those that experience this and it is by no means their fault. What made me uninstall and therefore regret buying this game is the amount of bugs that exist in the game. And this is end of Feb when the game has been out for many months. 90% of these bugs are explained in detail on youtube although I have experienced others that are not even mentioned. google "why bf4 is broken" and decide for yourself whether you think shooting somebody should result in a hit or not or whether shooting an enemy on your screen should be the deciding factor on where the server says that enemy actually took damage or whether you were shooting into clear space in between that enemy. Some people will defend these broken mechanics. These are not real gamers. If you are a real gamer avoid this game otherwise by all means ignore the "moaners" like me that cannot accept poor development.
