Deutschland - Nedzad Hurabasic: »Dice lässt nichts anbrennen und verbessert das Schlachten-Getöse mit einigen Detail-Änderungen. Der Konkurrent Call of Duty wird es schwer haben, das in diesem Jahr zu übertreffen. Den Einzelspieler-Teil sollte man hingegen lediglich als nette Dreingabe betrachten, die auch aufgrund ihrer Bruchstückhaftigkeit nicht überzeugen kann.« - 92%. Matti Sandqvist: »Konsequente, beinahe perfekte Weiterentwicklung der Reihe - top!«

International - 9,4/10. »nachosjustice«: » Battlefield 4 is visually amazing, with plenty of pretty that is often simultaneously aesthetic and practical, while the DICE sound wizards continue to forge a second-to-none soundscape that complements the eye candy. If you’re a Battlefield fan, this purchase is a given, but even the smaller, faster-paced modes give Call of Duty a run for its money on its FPS formula« - 9/10. Rob Taylor: »At its best, there's nothing to touch Battlefield 4's multiplayer for all-encompassing war.« - 8/10. Dan Whitehead: »Battlefield 4 is, of course, pretty much exactly the game you expect. A rather thin single-player campaign hangs on the tail of a much more interesting and robust multiplayer offering in which players skirmish across vast maps, throwing everything from quad bikes to state-of-the-art jet fighters at each other [...].«

Game Informer - 8,75/10. Matt Bertz: »Battlefield 4 doesn't advance the series in any significant way, but the subtle improvements provide enough incentive for multiplayer fans to invest heavily in the land, air, and sea battles,given the underwhelming performance of yet another story campaign [...].«

Gamesradar - 4,5/5. Andy Hartup: »Multiplayer shooters don't get better than Battlefield 4. Incredible destruction, smart map design, and solid tech combine to produce a true showcase for PS4 and PC. While solo play still lags behind, it's a big step up from BF3. «

Gamereactor - 9/10. Oskar Nyström: »It's enough to state that Battlefield 4 delivers the most immersive and polished experience in the franchise's history. No one will leave this game disappointed, unless your focus is the single-player mode.«

Gamespot - 8/10. Chris Watters: »Regardless of platform, Battlefield 4 multiplayer is a blast and definitely the best reason to return to this hallowed franchise or dive in for the first time. Though the campaign makes strides in the right direction, it remains a sideshow to the main event.«

IGN - 8,5/10. Mitch Dyer: »Battlefield 4 is an excellent multiplayer game that makes the most of its ambitions, proving once again that destruction is a valuable strategic addition to competitive combat. On the other hand, its single-player campaign is a disappointing, but functioning and familiar game with overwhelming action and remarkable spectacle.«

Joystiq - 4,5/5. David Hinkle: »Ultimately, Battlefield 4 successfully piles more content onto its excellent multiplayer while adding just a hint of innovation through Commander mode and Field Upgrades. The single-player campaign, while suffering from a dearth of checkpoints in some missions, does a good job of entertaining throughout its brief conflict, trading in the abysmal dreck that was Battlefield 3's story for high-energy spectacle.«

Kotaku - Not Yet. Tina Amini: »The singleplayer certainly isn't worth your time, but multiplayer is as fun as ever so far. Waiting until public servers are up before we make a judgement.«

PC Gamer - 80/100. Evan Lahti: »Although familiar to BF3, but BF4 remains a visually and sonically satisfying, reliably intense FPS. Improved by Commander Mode and a terrific and diverse map set.« - 7,5/10. Arthur Gies: »Battlefield 4 melds elements of its predecessors, but their baggage weighs it down. DICE has failed once again to make Battlefield 4 a serious single-player contender. But its emphasis on ambitious, team-based multiplayer does wonders to wash the taste of that failure away.«

Rev3Games - 4/5. Adam Sessler: »Scale remains stunning, smart new game modes - encounters can be thrilling and inventive. The massive levels can sometimes hurt the pacing, and the single player campaign is weak.« - 9/10. David Scammell: »It’s eye-gogglingly beautiful, laced with breathtaking lighting and particle effects, and offers a significant visual and mechanical step up over the current-gen version. The campaign isn’t without its share of faults, but it's a near technically flawless launch title that finally brings Battlefield to consoles the way it should be.«
