Tried and true formula of in-your-face realistic war-time FPS. Doesn't rely heavily on gimmicks and the Frostbite 4 Engine is borderline revolutionary
Frostbite 4 sets Battlefield 4 apart from any other entry in the series, as well as competing FPS titles. This is warfare on another level
The graphical presentation makes Battlefield 4 about as real as it gets save taking an actual bullet while deployed.
The single player narrative is of the standard variety. You are the good guy, find the bad guy, kill the bad guy. It's executed better than most, but still the single player mode is not what gives a game like Battlefield 4 it's lasting appeal
