    Battlefield V brings a lot to the table. Between the great gameplay, superb story from singleplayer, and customization of your character, there's something for everyone.

    After spending quite a while with the game, I’m blown away that there’s still so much to discover. With dozens of collectibles to find in the single player campaign, a seemingly-unlimited number of weekly challenges, and the Tides of War looming large on the horizon, Battlefield V is the best this series has ever been, and easily the best FPS of the season.

    With the return to World War 2, Battlefield reaches a new zenith thanks to meaningful innovations - if one disregards the single player.

    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.

    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.

    As chaotic and exhilarating as Battlefield has always been. Just don’t expect a dramatic reinvention of the series.

    Battlefield V fails to impress the same way Battlefield 1 did. By all means, give it a try if you’re a fan of DICE’s previous work, but know that you’ll have to put up with some pretty glaring faults.

    **UPDATE**

    They've reverted all the terrible TTK changes, so I will revert my review change as well.

    On December 12th, 2018, they rolled out a TTK update, which essentially reverted all of the hard work the team did to improve gunplay. This update wasn't asked for, as TTK was one of the highlights of the game. I'm changing my score from 10 to 2 due to this atrocious and unwelcome change.

    ** ORIGINAL REVIEW**
    I've been a Battlefield veteran for a little under 10 years now, and Battlefield V is by far my favorite title in the series so far. I canceled my pre-order after the beta, but I decided to give it another shot as I love the series. DICE really took the constructive criticisms to heart. There are NO microtransactions in the game at launch, and when they arrive, they will be cosmetic only and no random boxes. All future content is free. The gunplay is comparable to BF3, which many people consider to have the best gunplay in the entire series. The character customization, while lacking an actual character creator, is in-depth enough for people who are into it yet not so in-depth that those who don't enjoy that aspect of a game won't find it tedious and distracting. The gameplay itself is fast paced and has a sense of urgency that I feel was missing from Battlefield 1. The weapon progression is fantastic, and the idea to have the starter weapons full upgraded on start prevents new players from being run over by veteran players (something that occurred in Battlefront 2). I was skeptical when I played the beta, like I'm sure many of you were, but rest assured, the final product is by far worth the money and a fantastic addition to the series. They took the better parts of the previous games, specifically regarding players' feedback, and created, in my personal opinion, one of the best FPS games in that last decade. If you are a fan of previous Battlefields and took a break due to the change BF1 saw in the series, I implore you to give Battlefield V a chance.

    Clearly, the negative feedback are just from people who barely played the game or are just motivated to downvote anything related to BFV

    -> Game released was already solid. Few bugs (may impact more one user than another).
    -> Game received two updates in less than a month.. DICE is really monitoring and giving proper attention to its behemoth.
    -> One of the best gun/gameplay of the franchise.
    -> Two weeks after release, we already can unlock 3 new weapons and one new map. Some say BFV lacks content but forget that a DLC delivers new maps months after the release... we already started to receive new content two weeks after worldwide lauch.
    -> Lack of progresssion from BF1 was fixed. Now, you have several ranks and progressions to go thru (weapon, class, soldier, Tides of War) etc...

    I can wait to receive maps featuring new factions such as Russians, Americans and Japaneses...
    I recommend.. Specially now that you can already find it on sale already and there's no premium anymore

    A fun, great looking game with more than its share of annoying bugs that will no doubt be fixed over time - your standard BF release. AnotherA fun, great looking game with more than its share of annoying bugs that will no doubt be fixed over time - your standard BF release. Another round of subtle tweaks and improvements from BF1, but i can imagine many will still be wanting to see said improvements applied to a modern combat game with a wider range of vehicles and weapons. MP maps are fine for the most part, sadly nothing spectacular, hopefully this gets better over time.
    To all the people pissing and moaning about there being too many women in multiplayer, you do know you can set the gender and appearance of every class as you want it, right? If you hear too many women screaming in game, thats the because the player either didnt change the default, or actively chose to change it to a female character, there is nothing PC about this
