Battlefield 4 PlayStation 4

3 out of 5 eggs Cmon EA! 01/27/2014

This review is from: Battlefield 4 PlayStation 4

Pros: Incredible 'next-gen' graphics if you have a card good enough. I just dropped 500 bucks on an nVidia GTX 780. However, my mobo only has PCI-e 2.0, I don't think it bottlenecks the graphics all that much, if at all. I get 60FPS on optimal settings and ~23FPS if I've got everything on Ultra. This card can't even handle the game on Ultra graphics settings. I applaud BF4 for being that detailed on graphics. Because it really does look great even with optimal performance settings (Medium/high).

Cons: This game runs on Frostbite 3 engine, which still has really weird bugs: randomly dying when walking by debris, occasional extreme shakiness in vehicles (even with low ping), etc...

Also, the tickrate on most BF4 servers is only 10Hz, which is almost a joke compared to games that are much older with 120Hz precision. It's just annoying when you're playing as recon(sniper) class and you clearly hit someone, your game client registers the hit, but the server doesn't. and if you play this game as recon, TRUST ME, YOU WILL NOTICE!

OH and don't even get me started on Origin. Terrible game client launcher.. I swear it's like Steam's annoying younger brother. It's clumsy software, crashes often, operates slowly, and there's no way to limit your download speed.

Other Thoughts: I've been a fan of battlefield ever since BF1942, and I'd say that EA has come a long way in terms of concepts.. But sometimes I just feel like the Frostbite needs to go ruin some other game. EA should hire a better team of developers or just tell them to start from scratch for Battlefield 5.

Sceptre 32
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Overall, worth it. 12/16/2012

This review is from: Sceptre 32" Class (31.5" Diag.) 1080p 60Hz LCD HDTV X328BV-FHD

Pros: Video quality is great for the price that was payed. 1920x1080 resolution. 32 inches, perfect size for dorms or smaller rooms.

The user interface and remote are both designed intuitively. It's easy to navigate. Setting a sleep timer is done easily. Selecting input methods isn't cyclic, so you never worry about accidentally passing up the input you need.

Although it's not a smartTV, the remote has a pretty good amount of functionality. Most notable of all the features is the freeze screen button.

Cons: Audio quality can be terrible on for certain videos or types of music. Also, lower frequencies sometimes make a rumbling sound if the volume is turned up over ~15. I think it would be wise to get a good set of speakers for this TV, as there are various audio output jacks.

Other Thoughts: Stand swivels about 45 degrees from side to side. The input ports were placed parallel to the screen near the bottom left side, so it would be cumbersome to use in a tightly packed entertainment center.
