    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.

    Battlefield 5 is a great successor, but lacks in the area of multiplayer maps. For the next game DICE should think about leaving out the non-essential single-player campaign.

    Battlefield V is a nice game, although we will have to wait for months to play all of its content. Not the most innovative iteration of DICE’s series, but an epic shooter about the infamous World War II.

    The most visually stunning FPS game on the market right now with a thoroughly engaging multiplayer. Sadly, it still remains incomplete.
  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.

    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. II'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. Expand

    First off let me preface this review by saying I have thousands of hours in games like BF5. Well over 2-3,000 in BF2/Project Reality, AroundFirst off let me preface this review by saying I have thousands of hours in games like BF5. Well over 2-3,000 in BF2/Project Reality, Around 600 or so in BF3/BF1/BF1, and around 4,500 hours in Planetside 2.

    I had low expectations for BF5 before the beta because nothing had been released to really drive the game home. Upon playing the beta something was different, every mechanic and interaction has been touched on from shooting, feedback on hitting, dying, movement, maps, cover, bipods and overall feel to the game.

    This is the most fluid BF game since 3 with amazing domain ( infantry/tank/plane ) gameplay.

    Everything is lethal, and everything is lethal to each other but powerful in its own regards which makes it enjoyable. Tanks die quickly, but can wipe out entire squads when used right. Bombers decimate the landscape but are wrecked by a skilled fighter pilot. Snipers kill the open lanes, but medics block the sight lines with smoke.

    The game is a masterpiece and a masterwork and worth your time to revisit the Battlefield series.

    Давайте по полочкам, хорошо?
    1) Графика. она спорная. Днем все либо пересвеченное и белое, не яркое, а именно белое, либо перезатемненное и черное. Вечерние карты - норм выглядят. Ночные - все черное и белое, я не знаю зачем они так настроили шейдеры. Ну не так все освещается и затеняется в реале (и в хороших играх), не так. Снежок падает, с крыш стекает если в дом врезаться, это есть. Но в целом графика - обычная. Она похуже, чем в БФ1, хуже, чем в БФ 3.
    2) Звук. Звук определенно хуже, чем в БФ1.
    3) Игровые механики. Стрельба так себе, импакта нет. Целиться - менее выгодно, чем стрелять от бедра, потому что все оружие на ближней и средней сверхточное, на прицел только зря время потратишь. После того, как тебя отстрелят, ты лежишь и орешь, это бесит, ресать тебя естественно никто не торопится - а зачем? Чтоб его рядом положили? Строительство укрытий - не нужно, их быстро ломают, только время потеряешь. Патронов постоянно нет. Это реализм? Нет, это просто бесячая особенность, которая ничего не дает, кроме нервов. На одной карте тебя отстреливают пока ты в воздухе находишься, на парашюте, то есть спавнкилл. Спасибо, Дайс. Я лично на этой карте просто ливаю и все, чтоб время не тратить и нервы.
    4) Сингл. О господи, это самый убогий сингл в истории видеоигр. Если у вас есть мозг, сингл вас оскорбит. Смотрите, есть 3 компании - про бабу, которая всех убила, про негра и про британца. Четвертая будет про нацистов-танкистов. Игра про нацистов, клево, да? Про британца - более менее, обычная тупая пафосная история, не плохая и не хорошая, обычная нормальная кампания. Минус только один - проходится за час. Кампания про бабу - можно в помещении ездить на лыжах, можно вручную убивать всех, если рашить их в лоб, злодеи в нее не стреляют. А еще она проваливается под воду, зимой в горах, тупо плывет к берегу и потом спит в сугробе, на утро просыпается и идет всех руками душить. Смерть от обморожения в первые полчаса после вылезания из воды? Вы о чем, вообще никакого дискомфорта. гордым независимым женщинам плевать на физику, законы природы, логику и т.д. Точнее не женщинам, а идиотам из Дайс. Короче ребят, сингл в этой игре это просто клоунада.
    5) Баги лаги и т.д. баги есть, плохая регистрация попаданий есть, можно расстрелять с дробовика и ничего не будет, но это скорее всего поправят, это меньшее из зол.
    ИТОГ - эта игра - пародия и клоунада, никакого отношения ко 2 мировой не имеет. Это как порно - пародия, только без порно. Контента нет, режимов мало, карт мало, сейчас это не игра, это демо-версия. Если у вас есть БФ1 - играйте в него, новый БФ вам ничего не даст, это просто рескин, с тотальным урезанием контента. Играть можно только если вам ее кто-то подарил, самому ее покупать - пустая трата денег. Никому не советую. Лучше БФ 1 играть, он лучше во всем

    What can I say?

    Same OLD Same OLD... since BF3 all the BF games has been the same and brought nothing new at all. A bit better graphics between each and thats all. The gameplay and mechanics still the same it so darn boring. And they don't even make campaigns anymore? Either its short campaign or there is no campaign at all.
    It feels like throwing money for something I've already have because every BF is the same. Its like COD all over again. And above all that there are so many DLCs you have to buy because you pay full price for half a game.

No immersion at all, even worse I haven't even had the feeling of playing a WW2 game. The shooting mechanics are even worse than BF1. Spotting is a mess and makes absolutely no sense in a WW2 game. Lack of content considering you pay 70 euro for the deluxe edition, but nothing, not even all of the single player missions, are available.

    I'll stick with BF1 and BF4.
