I played the Beta, and I wasn't impressed. It seems more of a mod, than a standalone game. It's definitely not worth $60, in my opinion, at least not from what I played.

Well it was a beta.

Yes, it was a beta, but I think the complaints about the game are concerning what the game is centered around. Not war. It's cops and robbers. That's not Battlefield man. And they"ve all got freakin' parachutes. It's just a re-skinned BF4 in a bad way.

They should make a Dante's Inferno 2 for Next Gen consoles.
Instead of this cops of robbers POS...

IMHO, the "next-gen" consoles are POSes. The hardware is inadequate, the availability and variety of games is horrid. No wonder why PC sales are on the rise again...nuff said!!

Most "PC gamers" I've come across have hardware that is inadequate. I can't name one person in my circle of friends who have gaming PCs that can beat mine or even match it. And no, I don't build uber rigs.

You also can't use PC sales alone as a figure of measure that PC gaming is doing well. A majority of people don't use PCs to play demanding games (shocker!)... and even then, popular games in the MOBA category don't take much to run anyway. I bet my build from 2008 could run it and ask for seconds.

I was skeptical of just how well PC gaming was doing the other day when MPC posted the article about PC gaming hardware outselling consoles.. In my bubble it seems that consoles are more common.. but obviously my bubble is small compared to the world. I think the numbers given in the below article which is only a few months old pretty much sum it up. PC gaming is doing just fine.. it's console gaming that is not doing so well it seems.

You really can't use the argument of "A majority of people don't use PCs to play demanding games" many people don't use their consoles for playing "demanding games" either. I know of 3 households with XBone's who use them more like an HTPC than a gameing machine. The numbers don't lie. 900 million PC gamers world wide, only 262 million PS3's, 360's and Wii's combined sold. Like the article said.. even acounting for a good margin of error those numbers are far apart.

Not buying it regardless and I own them all. I played the beta and personally didn't care for it. I buy Battlefield games for (lack of a better phrase),"playing army" on-line.

I know I'll take some sheet for saying this but here goes anyway.

I didn't like being a cop shooting at robbers or being a robber shooting at cops. They are the good guys. Right? And they all have parachutes? Dumb I thought. Especially after that recent shoot-out in Stockton CA, the game's whole premise just turns me off. Guess I'm getting old.

I hope since they are delaying this game we may get more Double-XP-Weekends for BF4.

I too play BF to "play army".. I played the beta for about an hour the 2nd or 3rd day and never went back.. simply not interested. It adds nothing new to the franchise.. it simply looks and feels like a bf4 skin job. If it were a $15-20 dlc for BF4 I MIGHT consider it simply because I know I'm going to have some friends playing it. Looks like ill be getting my "playing army" fix with BF4 for a lot longer. Hopefully they realize they screwed up and go back to the battlefield where they belong for the next game. I mean seriously.. what were they thinking?

Is there anybody here that likes it and cares to chime in on what they like about it? Maybe I'm missing something.. I doubt it.. but I'm open to opinions.

i for one, still play thru the story lines. Have completed BF4 story 3 times, the 3rd time to unlock all the weapons.

EA = Origin which means,
Not Interested.

If it's not served by Steam or playable completely off-line, it doesn't make it into my rig. Dealt with Origin on a few titles, a few years back and I learned the hard way.

At this point EA should just release the game as a green-lit style game. Keep it available in beta until they decide 1.0 is fine.

Not like anyone plays it for the single player *cough*
