    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.

    Despite the bad press at the start, I have a lot of faith in Dice as a developer and they have delivered a fantastic shooter this year with Battlefield V after listening to their community and taking their feedback seriously.

    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.
  6. Battlefield V successfully delivers expectations from gameplay perspective. The new featured Grand Operations mod and War Stories are great. But releasing with only 8 maps and lack of content is also concerning.

    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.

The Developper reacted to critics appropriately and so far I'm satisfied, there are bugs yes, but I'm confident they will be fixed. Historical accuracy was never a thing that was promised and as you know our forefathers didn't run to different flags to defeat the Nazis, so I find the whole debate ridiculous. I really enjoyed the Last Tiger Mission, it was outstanding and nice to see the war from the german view. Microstransactions can only be used for cosmetics so it's everyone's own choice if he/she wants to buy a skin or not. Also one can't criticise BF5 for having them while enjoying other titles with the same System (OW, Anthem,Fortnite, Fifa,...). I think the ratings aren't quite as objective as they should be.
    All in all a great game, also I'm happy you can play as a woman, makes the game also more interesting for female players.

Graphics and sounds are spectacular. Grand Operations and War Stories succeed. All DLCs will be free because there is no Premium Pass BUT Female characters are breaking the atmosphere of realistic warfare. PC platform has serious performance issues.Having only 8 maps for starting is a big problem. AS A RESULT, Battlefield V will surely satisfy players who likes Battlefield 1. Expand

    First lets not talk about all the political stuff, it is a okay game, everything is pretty much mediocre but certainly playable, no it doesn'tFirst lets not talk about all the political stuff, it is a okay game, everything is pretty much mediocre but certainly playable, no it doesn't worth the price tag in my opinion, especially consider RDR2 is marketed at the same price assuming you have a console.
    Well, I don't know exactly how hard it would be for these marketing people and these what so called game "journalist" to understand that you don't need to make everything political correct in order to show support to certain subject, alright? There are a lot more way to show support like making donations, make a story line that actually relate to the mater instead of forcefully to make it political correct. just learn from car makers, some of the openly show support to lgbtq community and gender equality which i am totally fine with, but they don't force you to watch a 1min ads talking about equality every time you enter the car, or only paint it in rainbow color to show support. If i wanna watch political propaganda brainwash, i will just go watch tv news.
    Yes, 2018 is a bad year for gamers, fallout 76 is a bad game because I see no effort of making it better from Bethesda, and they failed to deliver what they "promised". Cod bo4 is bad because it has become too far from its root, and the quick cash grabbing practice is just disgusting. BF5 is a whole different story, while the game is okay and has some potential, the publisher and devs are just ignorant and make it to please these political activist aka.some game journalist (with all respect to these hard working programmers who actually physically make the game), and it has gone too far from its customers. Im glad they learned it the hard way but at the same time knowing that they are not going to change anyway...
    In the end, if i get a second chance, I will probably spend the money on some actually creative and interesting game like thief simulator or a premium vehicle in war thunder, and a chick fil a sandwich.

    This game is an unfinished, unpolished, steaming pile. Its release was shoddy, its marketing was somehow worse. The Firestorm ("BattleThis game is an unfinished, unpolished, steaming pile. Its release was shoddy, its marketing was somehow worse. The Firestorm ("Battle Royale") add-on is a cheap cash grab, and a sub-par one of that. Their creative vision has been reduced to nothing but adding more skins and weapons, with no interest in adding new maps. The game has released with 8 maps. Only 8 maps. And there's no news of adding anything new, initiative, or interesting. Whatever love that came with this game died at the door, and their only interest is to drag whatever money they can out of your wallet.

    The lag in this game is something else. And when I say lag, I mean the lag compensation from the game. If you're in cover? Guess what, you're out in the open on the enemy's screen, they will see you, and they will kill you.

    There's a setting that changes the foliage setting, which affects the render distance of said foliage. In a competitive game. In a shooter. With some maps that have up to 50% of nothing but corn fields. What are they thinking, truly?

    Some updates will reset your weapon loadouts. Some updates will introduce new bugs. But either way, enjoy the 40GB+ download. But hey, at least they managed to set up their in-game store correctly.

    Please, please take my advice. If you wish to waste your money, please spend it anywhere else than here. Anywhere else. Take someone out for a date. Throw the money into a toilet. I don't care. But even that will give you more satisfaction than playing this grindfest, sorry excuse of a product. Even buying Souljaboy's gaming console would be a better investment.

    Very sloppy production. Tons of bugs in addition to the politically correct trash make me regret I bought it.
