Battlefield V review
by NikTheZocker

Solid war stories. Each is getting better, concluding in the Tiger tank mission. A bit declamatory sometimes though.


The Multiplayer is alright, I guess. It has good ideas, which I really would like to have in Battlefield 1, like the construction mechanic and that the tanks and planes have ammunition. But all in all it's too bright and colourfull for a war scenery. The with real money obtainable skins are hurting the immersion and we lack maps. Especially annoying is the fact, that you can't combine the european and pacific maps in the search option. I'm also missing the Russians, Italians, French and maybe even the Chinese. In the End I got the feeling that they have not investest as much love as into Battlefield 1, which is sad, because there is definitely some potential here.

Man, it's not easy to play this game when you know its wasted potential.

Today, it looks truly amazing. The visuals are stunning. The sound design is the best gaming can offer, imo. The gameplay mechanics are a simple evolution of most good things we saw in the franchise. Even though, it's a flop.

EA, one more time, killed another influential game. Games were inspired by battlefield. Not the opposite. The hungriness of money driven by EA left this game launch unfinished, with poor live service and optimization.

After years, the game is playable and completed. But at what cost? hm... you know... 95% of the fan base. You only can find conquest servers, at least if you live in South America, like me. There's no diversity in game modes and no one talks about this game anymore. And that sad cuz, after dealing with all problems, DICE did a good job - unfortunately, too late.

campaign is so so and not my kind of multiplayer
«Oh God i managed it»
An amazing digital realization of the WWII battlefield. Even in multiplayer, things feel anxiety-inducingly intense, with artillery shells splintering wood beams right next to you, while bullets whizz by. The community has some problems with it, but it really seems to be that games like this just aren't at the forefront of multiplayer anymore.
Battlefield V is missing something. It doesn’t have the same feel as 1 and I don’t really know why. It’s still a solid multiplayer experience, it’s fun, but it’s not the same. The BR mode was an enjoyable bonus. I think I actually had my favourite moments during the BR mode. I was ridiculously good at it because I’ve always been good at battlefield and this one just clicked. I played a bit of the campaign but it didn’t interest me and I didn’t finish it. Overall this was still fun but it did not have the same soul or character or atmosphere or whatever word best describes what this was missing. 

Final Score: A-
Not as well balanced as BF1 when it comes to multiplayer combat (respawn points, class build, flow of battle).
Still an decent game though. 
new game mechanics and old annoying bugs
