This review is from: Madden NFL 25 PS4 Game EA
Pros: Anybody saying they don't notice a graphics update on this version compared to last gen is understating it. You really have to play the game to notice the upgrade though, youtube video compression makes this game look a lot worse than it really is. Much more detail in pretty much everything, much more clearer, more smoother frame rate, and smoother edges on everything especially the players (less jaggy lines). If you're a PC gamer you can pretty much compare this to setting Madden 25 from last gen on very high video settings. Or on a much more simpler analogy, grass on last gen Madden 25 (Xbox 360, PS3) looks like artificial turf compared to the grass on the PS4 version. Gameplay seems a bit better but not by much which isn't a bad thing, just having the graphics in more detail definitely makes the experience more enjoyable though.
Other Thoughts: If you have a PS4 this game is worth a look in person, you will notice a difference between this version's graphics and last gen's. I haven't gone back to the Xbox 360 version since I bought this, other than to play my friends head to head who still don't have a next gen console.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Battlefield 4 PS4 Game EA
Pros: I'm a long time Call of Duty fan and am new to the Battlefield franchise. This is a welcome change from the constant rehash and repeat Call of Dutys since Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. The single player campaign has a great storyline, excellent level design, great graphics (not a huge jump from last gen, but the frame rate is definitely smoother and the graphics are more detailed) and very nice gameplay mechanics. I had issues with joining a match when I first got it, but now ever since an update and putting my PS4 in the DMZ of my router (I forgot to at first) I've been able to join matches without a hitch. I've yet to have my save file corrupt on me *crosses fingers*.
Cons: The game crashed once so far since I've gotten it. I hope it's the last time it happens and I've gotten an update since then. Also, it seems like it takes a very long time to get new weapons and weapon upgrades in the multiplayer compared to Call of Duty.
Other Thoughts: This was one of the reasons I bought a PS4. I played the beta version of it on PC and had loads of fun even though it was just one level. However I prefer the controller over KB&M (just personal preference, much more used to it) and would rather have this game on the PS4 than PC. It actually runs smoother on my PS4 than my PC even after some upgrades, but I only upgraded my PC to a mid range gaming PC at best.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: For the very short time this hard drive worked, it was very fast and very quiet.
Cons: Even after seeing the bad reviews I decided to give this drive a try since it was on sale and was 7200 rpm, 500 gb. The drive completely failed within a week. I started to hear loud clicking, screeching and clanking noises while working on my netbook followed with Windows freezing. At that point I knew the drive was dead but decided to give it one last chance and do a full format to possibly save the drive. Half-way through the format, the drive once again made loud clicking, screeching and clanking noises and then the format stopped and failed. I shipped it back for a full refund and I do not think I will be buying another HDD from this brand that I never even heard of before.
Other Thoughts: I would have rated this one egg if not for Newegg's prompt refund. I suppose I’m glad it died early so that it was still eligible for RMA and also while my OS install was still fresh. Like the old saying, sooner rather than later.READ FULL REVIEW
