The first reviews of Battlefield 4 are mixed. Lazygamer has a good summary of coverage from several sites, and there seems to be some consensus that the single-player campaign isn't anything special. However, the multiplayer is apparently pretty slick. Here's a new multiplayer launch trailer to whet your appetite.
That's the Battlefield I know and love. I wonder how many tries it took to get that mid-air collision between the ATV and helicopter just right.
If my mousing shoulder weren't a little sore, I'd be jumping into the multiplayer tonight. The game is already primed on my Ivy-E test rig, and I'm curious to see how smoothly the machine pumps out the latest Frostbite eye candy across my three 1920x1200 displays. I can always throw in a second hot-clocked GeForce GTX 680 to go along with the one that's installed already. This gig does have its perks.
Were any of you hardcore enough to play Battlefield 4 on day one? What are your impressions so far?
