EA Claims Battlefield 4 Is “The Best FPS Out There, Period”

By   /   3 years ago

It looks like Electronic Arts doesn’t mind a little friendly competition, claiming Battlefield 4 is “the best FPS out there, period.” It released an image with a ton of positive review scores from several notable outlets. Scores include a staggering 9.5/10 from Gametrailers, 8.75/10 from GameInformer and 8.5/10 from IGN, which is one of the leading gaming sites.

Naturally, this image cherry-picks favorable critiques to bolster its appeal. It leaves out less, but still decent, scores from other huge outlets like Gamespot, which gives it an 8/10. Some go even lower, like the 7/10 from Edge or 7.5/10 from Polygon, who recently has been known for a strict rating schedule.

Many critics address Battlefield 4’s rocky singleplayer campaign’s iffy state. This is a recurring event from Battlefield 3, when EA decided to implement an impactful singleplayer event in the multiplayer title.

Still, Battlefield 4 does offer some impressive multiplayer experiences. With its new destructible environment, its giant maps transform from reflecting buildings to gigantic piles of rubble. Some locations hold up to 64 players going to war, which makes for quite the hectic environment. With elevators and aircrafts, gameplay also takes multiple levels.

Multiplayer is where the action is in Battlefield 4, that’s certain.

With the image, EA takes a jab at its competitor Call of Duty: Ghosts. Activision’s prize pony received a few harsher judgments. The prime concern was that the series has become stagnant, despite additions like dynamic maps and underwater action.

Metacritic Battlefield 4

From a purely technical standpoint, EA is right to say it has acquired better scores, since the Metacritic scores that pool all reviews together place Battlefield 4 higher than Call of Duty: Ghosts. Whether it follows this up commercially isn’t certain yet, as Activision already boasted $1 billion in sales on its shooter’s first day of release.
