    2016’s Battlefield 1 was a refreshing revisit to the first World War that introduced new elements to the genre. Battlefield V refines some of those features, but doesn’t break any new innovative ground. It has enough content to keep you occupied, possesses a decent progression system that keeps you invested, and will receive free future DLC without a whiff of loot crates or microtransactions. However, it follows an expected blueprint that may quickly grow stale for players looking for a fresh FPS experience.

    Battlefield V is another fun entry in this well established shooter series. The problem is that it's full of bugs and feels unfinished at launch.

    Who knew that the horrors of war could ultimately end up being so goddamn beautiful?

    Ripe with potential but riddled with problems, the new Battlefield will be brilliant six months from now. Right now, however, it’s merely a good shooter. [Issue#157, p.83]

    EA and DICE seem to have lost sight of what made this series a true contender for the FPS crown, and both the gameplay and the content are suffering as a result.

    DICE almost always delivers when it comes to technology and multiplayer gameplay, and this is true with BFV. But Battlefield V is also plagued with bugs, looks half-finished and, overall, it gives the impression of a product that was rushed to the market.

    A game that aspires to be both a legitimate portrayal of war and an entertaining video game, but opts to take the easy route and do rid with any semblance of mature, balanced storytelling and instead replaces it with a rushed, disjointed campaign and a multiplayer component that’s getting seriously long in the tooth.

    Despite all the controversy, the game is very good.
    I think games should be evaluated as games.

    EA sure rolled the DICE with Battlefield V bwahaha...but seriously what a disappointment.

    Run-n-gun like you're in World War 2: Gun-play
    EA sure rolled the DICE with Battlefield V bwahaha...but seriously what a disappointment.

    Run-n-gun like you're in World War 2:
    Gun-play is fluid, character movement is smooth most of the time and every gun shoots-n-feels unique. The immersion though is unmatched with BFV having you move-n-feel like a soldier fighting in World War 2.

    You do have your typical shooter problems though like the many hit-markers and spawn issues in MP, i also found mounting over walls can get irritating and ruin your flow of movement. The gun balancing could be a issue especially with the weapon mods which it feels like BF is slowly crawling towards being like Call of Duty.

    Can i have the rest of my game please?:
    Long gone the days where AAA First Person Shooters have a solid Campaign.
    So much is locked away until "given date" - way to value your Day 1 buyers, War Stories is a short-n-disappointing experience and that's it...with the rest of the other options being Multiplayer.

    Art & Sound team did there job:
    The game is visually impressive, the map design in both War Stories and Multiplayer are gorgeous. Explosions are heavy and hearing the gunfire in the distance and yelling soldiers helps with the immersion, the small things though like screaming soldiers from being blown up or asking for a medic provides some realism but also a little laughter.

    A few hiccups here and there:
    Loading screen times are okay, the A.I. in War Stories though is quite bad, servers are stable as of now and as for bugs, there have been a few I've come across but nothing game-breaking. Menus look clean but can get confusing when navigating.

    Multiplayer barely holds up:
    Battlefield's Squad-Play is still the most beneficial way to play Multiplayer.
    The maps are beautiful to look at it but are horrible to play in with the exception of a couple, the Multiplayer modes haven't improved much and even the newly named "Grand Operations" doesn't capture the same magic as Operations did from BF1.

    Now for Vehicles, I was also hoping to see some serious dogfight battles or opportunities but never got it, there are a few vehicles but they almost felt like they were tacked on, Tanks almost feel pointless here, Battlefield V feels like it has strayed far from what it once was.

    The Good:
    + Immersive experience +2
    + Gun-play works smoothly +1
    + Beautiful looking maps +1

    The Bad:
    - War Stories is lackluster -1
    - Multiplayer has taken a step backwards here -1

    The Ugly:
    - Barebones content, especially on Day 1 [and still to this day] -2

    Battlefield V gets a V/10 from me:
    I don't know where this franchise is heading and with the games current state, i don't see myself sticking around long enough for the future content.
