Battlefield 4: Naval Strike DLC Review (PS4)
The 4 naval based maps are great, there’s cool new vehicles and game types but the game is broken. Rubber banding has reared it’s ugly head where a 64 player conquest game is unplayable. Call me when it’s ready.
Rubber Banding in Full Effect
Now for some glitches
There’s so much potential here, yet so much disappointment. The new game type, Carrier Assault is pretty fun too but right now, it’s frustrating to play. Stick to either 32 player count games or search for the “Test Server” where it seems they’ve resolved many rubber banding issues. It’s full a lot for obvious reasons but it at least provides a glimmer of hope about the next update. I can’t recommend this until Dice fixes these game breaking issues in 64 player Conquest games.
A note on our rating scale: We rate things out of five, but don't confuse it with ratings from other publications. We’re not professional reviewers who do this for a living, we don't get sent free copies of games, and we don't have the luxury to play a ton of games during our work hours - we buy/borrow all our games and do this during our off-time, outside of our jobs and families. Our ratings take into account the time and money spent, and are here to help you make an informed decision on whether this game is worthy of your hard-earned cash and limited time.5 – An almost flawless game with good graphics, sound and gameplay. You might even want to replay it many times, despite your busy schedule. A must-buy.
4 – It has some flaws, but it’s still worth a playthrough. Buy it if you like this type of game.
3 – An average game targeted to specific niches. It has its redeeming factors. Buy it on sale or if you fit its target demographic/niche.
2 – The game sucks, but some will get enjoyment out of it. Play it at your own risk.
1 – Broken, ugly game with few redeeming qualities. Probably shouldn’t have been made. Leave this game alone and don’t even look at it.
0 – Worse than garbage. Game companies should pay you for the time you spent playing this trash.
