    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 changes the way historical FPS games are told, as it puts the human psyche ahead of glory, fame, and frags, or at least it does so until you join a multiplayer match.

    Despite these drawbacks though, Battlefield V offers some of the most rewarding, visceral WWII action in any game out there thanks to genius little tweaks to gameplay and immersion, all produced with an audio-visual technical mastery that is second to none. With its free live-service component as well, the future for the franchise looks very good.

    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.

    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]

    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.

    Much better than bf1, well optimized, game more fast, weapons more accurate, assault class now have long shooting rifle - thanks god. Now weMuch better than bf1, well optimized, game more fast, weapons more accurate, assault class now have long shooting rifle - thanks god. Now we can use 3X scope for any weapon, can revive teammates with any class, love to kill enemies while they trying to revive teammates. So don't listen anyone - just take it on sale and you wont regret it. And tanks sucks now and no horses, oh, I loved horse ride so much, but okay.

    One minus only - nothing common with WW2.

    How are women supposed to feel "empowered" by retconning the historic truth? WWII is NOT fiction. You may retcon FICTION NOT HISTORY.
    Why not
    How are women supposed to feel "empowered" by retconning the historic truth? WWII is NOT fiction. You may retcon FICTION NOT HISTORY.
    Why not make stories about women and their deeds in weapon factories, resistance movement and hospitals? I am sure there is enough heroic stuff to tell about women and their war efforts in those places. That would have at least a bit more of "truthiness" to it than changing those Norwegian War Heros (like Joachim Rønneberg) into some women.
    Looks like SJWs think the tactis of the alt-right like "alternative facts" and "fake news" are ok when done by "the good people for the good cause"?
    The rest of the game may be good, but missing 50% of the content at start is also something the games industry shouldn't be allowed to do anymore. A 60€ game should be working without a plethora of patches and feature completion months after release.
    Who buys a fridge that is only 50% working?
