17 minutes of explosive Battlefield 4 gameplay is (totally) eclipsed by Bonnie Tyler
Look, EA, DICE, whoever – I’m willing to buy that Battlefield 4’s spec ops dudes have been throwing themselves off buildings for years, until they’ve built up an immunity towards fall damage and can treat a collapsing factory roof as nothing more than a mild annoyance. I can also believe that – in a touching homage to those fallen G.I. Joes at the back of the cupboard – these fine soldiers now come with detachable limbs that can be severed with merely a flick of a (friendly) knife, thus making battlefield – hah – surgeries but a moment’s work.
But do you really expect me to believe that these men, these highly trained professionals, can’t turn a goddamn radio off?
That’s the sort of rookie mistake that Call of Duty wouldn’t make, you mark my words.
All right, I suppose I should say something about the game itself. Yes, it looks good. Yes, next-gen good. Yes, choosing to use the song with one of the creepiest videos ever was possibly not the best move. If I sound less than excited, it’s because I am – it’s a good trailer, but pretty explosions rarely tell you how good the actual game’s going to be. I loved the older Battlefield games, and I’ll almost certainly play Battlefield 4; I’m just hoping they find a way to shake things up a bit. right, hands up – who else did a double-take when that started playing? I shuddered.
