It was brutal and set the scene perfectly.


I've just played this as I got it off the store discounted. Probably the only game I've played to leave a bad taste in my mouth. Hold R2 to simulate the senseless murder of this pointless conflict. When you get in the tank and the guys like "That's it, mow then down lads! Use that machine gun! strawberry floatin' av it".

Not to mention it's dull and pointless to play. Oh and the multiplayer has taken about 3 days to install. Very close to regretting spending that 6 quid.


I think you may have completely misinterpreted the tone they were going after. They were not glorifying war they were showing how catastrophic it was and pointing out that people were being heroic by just being part of the conflict. It's rather harsh to say the conflict was pointless as at the time the people didn't think it was and they did their duty as best they could given an almost unimaginable situation.

How would you try and portray WW1?

Honestly probably not at all on reflection, but that was just my reaction to it. I haven't played the rest of the campaign but I'm not inclined to.

Multiplayer is slightly different in that it's not a re-enactment of real conflicts although the locations are real. Anyway, apologies as I have no comment on the new game.

I'd be really excited for a next gen version of Battlefield 4.

I think the game still looks good now so a next gen update could look amazing.

Sure but they looked dated on consoles. Give me Vietnam if I can’t have modern.

Out now on EA Access via the App & Origin Access Premier. Not sure about standard Origin Access.



Currently 85% on Opencritic, sounds like the campaign might be decent from the summary's there - https://opencritic.com/game/6207/battlefield-v?tab=1

As much As it looks superb and I love the look of it, it literally could be a bf1 ww2 dlc, I think they're gonna nail BR more more than any game before it though.

Reviews

Gamespot - 8

The Battlefield series has a winning formula that Battlefield V doesn't deviate far from, at least for now. Conquest and the map roster don't mesh well together, however, Grand Operations--and the other modes within it--steal the show and foster some of the greatest moments the franchise has offered. You might be surprised by the impact of the slight changes made for this entry, especially when you're deep into pushing or defending objectives in Frontlines alongside teammates fulfilling their roles. That's when Battlefield V is at its best.

https://www.gamespot.com/reviews/battle ... 0-6417039/

IGN - 7.5 (mp)

The feeling of getting in on the ground floor of something that will inevitably much better mere months from now is unavoidable while playing Battlefield V’s multiplayer. Squadplay and infantry combat in general is taken in a very worthwhile direction with smart tweaks to guns and resources, but the same care hasn’t been applied throughout. Rampant bugs, wildly varying mode times in similar playlists, and half-baked features like Combat Roles take their toll. The good news is that patches are already rolling out, and with a year or more of free maps and modes on the way, Battlefield V can only get better from here.

https://uk.ign.com/articles/2018/11/17/ ... yer-review

PC GamesN - 9

Battlefield V delivers the series' finest single-player campaign yet, painting the horror of war from rarely seen perspectives. That tension carries through to the multiplayer, which has been tuned to hammer home your vulnerability in a firefight.

https://www.pcgamesn.com/battlefield-v-pc-review

Gameinformer - 8

Battlefield V is a hard game to critique at this stage. Many of the minor tweaks improve the overall gameplay, which is still fun. But the majority of the innovations have yet to arrive, and new systems like the Company and Armory still need to be fleshed out. This game’s legacy won’t stand on the content currently in the game. Ultimately, Battlefield V will be defined by the success or failure of the pending Combined Arms cooperative mode, Firestorm battle royale mode, and whether or not DICE can continually provide new and engaging content. On day one, the game feels a few reinforcements short to pull off the overwhelming victory we’ve come to expect given the series’ strong lineage.

Destructoid - 8

Given enough time to work out the kinks, fine-tune the balance, and flesh out the full-priced package with content like the promised battle royale mode Firestorm, I can see this growing into one of my favorite installments. As is, I wouldn't necessarily rush out to buy the game right this minute unless Battlefield is your multiplayer series of choice and you can tolerate the early bugs and rough edges.

While I'm happy with what we got, I ultimately can't help but wonder what another six months could've done for Battlefield V. In a business with virtually no downtime, that's just the way it is.

https://www.destructoid.com/review-batt ... 0955.phtml

Press Start - 9

Battlefield V retains heart in its single player War Stories mode and variety in its multiplayer modes. New & improved personalisation within 'Your Company' gives each of the classes a fresh, personal feel to your soldiers, while remaining authentic to the era. A solid road map of content is set to deliver new maps, modes and seasonal events to keep gamers coming back, which is a good thing as no other game does raw gun play and bullet physics quite like Battlefield. It just feels right and Battlefield V is no exception.

Eurogamer

Yet that's the real thrill of Battlefield; those moments where the sandbox surprises you with unexpected moments of player agency. Is Battlefield at its best when it's a bit of a mess? I wouldn't go that far, and it's clear that DICE has a long road ahead of it to get Battlefield 5 ship shape and where it really needs to be. It's too slim, and too spotty, to recommend diving in this early. The foundations are in place, though, for something truly special.

https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2018 ... ts-to-come

EGM - 8.5

Battlefield V has the potential to be the best game in the series. It’s recaptured the magic of those Battlefield moments at almost every opportunity, and its new mechanics like squad revives and attrition put the focus back on sticking with your teammates. There are still a lot of questions it needs to answer with its Tides of War live service, and more casual players might be turned off by the challenging gunplay, but what we have now is a worthy successor to the Battlefield name.

Gamesradar - 3.5/5

Not as drastic a change up as its WW1 predecessor, nor as wild or wondrous, Battlefield 5’s deliberative design sidelines its strengths as a simulative sandbox.

Polygon - MP

t their most effective, successful World War II tankers famously fought at only two speeds: full power or full stop. Battlefield 5’s multiplayer plays similarly. It is one of the fastest military shooters to be released in years. The experience left me breathless at times. After a full weekend of play, all I want is more. But to buy into Battlefield 5 in 2018 is to accept a number of flaws and compromises. With multiple game modes still in development, including a battle royale mode that is still months from being available, Battlefield 5 is a work in progress.

https://www.polygon.com/reviews/2018/11 ... ion-system

VG247

Overall, Battlefield 5 is a brilliant shooter that’s hamstrung by its setting. Ignoring all the tonal weirdness, the core of the game is the best it has been since Bad Company 2, filled with smart design choices. When we finally get away from this latest trend of revisiting historical conflicts, when Battlefield is once again freed creatively, we could finally get something to rival the Bad Company series.
