Battlefield 4 review roundup ahead of Call of Duty Ghosts

By Posted 4 Nov 2013, 17:43

With the release of Call of Duty Ghosts just hours away, it seems fitting to look at just how well its nearest rival, Battlefield 4, has been received. The best way to do this is by taking a look at several reviews to gain an opinion as to what people think.

Battlefield 4 has been available to gamers in the US for a week and a little less in the UK and other parts of the world, and as such has been more than enough time for certain gaming websites to offer their opinion.

The first Battlefield 4 review is from CVG and believe this is a slick game for next-gen consoles, although we have also heard reports that there doesn’t seem to be much difference between the two versions. Both versions look great, but it could have been a lot better if the developer had more time to study the PS4 and the Xbox One for longer.

CVG liked the Battlefield 4 game engine on the next-gen versions, its awesome map, but was less impressed with its short single-player campaign and its respawn points. Having said that, they still scored the game a 9 out of 10.

Ars Technica has given a more in-depth BF4 review, and in a nutshell reports that the latest game from DICE has taken some of the best parts from the franchise and mixed them into one, and also offers players a lot to do. Having said that, they are also less impressed with single-player, as well as the game being ultra tough for those new to the series. The biggest problem for Ars Technica are the bugs present in the game, although we are sure the developer is working on them as we speak.

The final Battlefield 4 review for now is from GameSpot, and you will be surprised to learn that after reviewing all platform versions, it is still the PC that comes out on top. Again, you need to realize that developers have yet to fully get the most from the PS4 and Xbox One, and so we will have to wait another couple of years at least to see just what is possible.

This review also agrees with the others in terms of a poor single-player campaign, and so is something DICE needs to work on next time around.

These are just three Battlefield 4 reviews, and taking these into consideration how do you think Call of Duty Ghosts will compare?
