Battlefield 4 Naval Strike takes the intense and dramatic water-based combat introduced in Battlefield 4 to four all-new maps set in the South China Sea. Blow open a crashed passenger plane and capture fishing villages across the tropical Lost Islands. Drop a submarine on your foes as you infiltrate a naval base or rush between shipping docks and rocky islands on the massive Wave Breaker map.
Wage war across stormy seas in the largest ocean stretch in a Battlefield map yet with Nansha Strike. Storm an abandoned cliff-side resort, or get lost in the breathtaking vistas in Operation Mortar. Naval Strike also introduces five new weapons, the amphibious hovercraft vehicle, ten assignments and the all-new Carrier Assault mode, which is an homage to the fan-favorite, Titan mode from Battlefield 2142.
Battlefield 4's third DLC is far from perfect, but at least it manages to offer four highly enjoyable maps. The new game mode Carrier Assault looks great on paper, but fails to deliver a dynamic Battlefield experience. Naval Strike's lack of new surface combatants is really puzzling. Are small patrol boats really the best Battlefield 4 can do? [May 2014]
Those who don’t mind a swim between a firefight, will appreciate Naval Strike. If Paracel Storm never was your cup of tea, leave it on its digital shelf.
You can point out various Battlefield’s shortcomings, but DICE is excellent when it comes to designing maps and Naval Strike once again proves that fact. [06/2014, p.71]
If you've avoided Premium so far, it's probably not worth purchasing now. [July 2014, p.97]
