Through yourIntuitive destruction and dynamic weather ensure that no battle is ever the same. For even more gameplay possibilities, carve a path through walls and buildings, take down your enemies in creative ways, and leave your mark on the terrain around you through intuitive destruction. Through your actions, the pristine world around you change into a battle-scarred landscape, changing the world forever. With dynamic weather you will need to adapt your tactics to weather changes as the elements play a part in the battle. Playing the same map on a bright day, in heavy fog, or rain will impact what you see and hear, forcing you to adapt your play style on an ever-changing battlefield. Operations introduces a new way to play multiplayer. In Battlefield 1 you play a series of interconnected battles across multiple fronts. Play a sequence of battles where your actions have consequences beyond a single match, as you try to conquer territory or push back your attackers. At those times when you feel all is lost, call in the Behemoths - the largest fully player-controlled vehicles ever seen in Battlefield. Roam the battlefield and rain fire on your enemy to break their defenses. All-out war never felt so epic. Take control of the Armored Train, Air Ship, or the Battleship to dominate the battlefield across land, air, and sea. [Electronic Arts] Expand

    Battlefield is back in shape and more so with fresh theme of the first Great War! After a long time, the campaign is successful and multiplayer is traditionally excellent. So, this year your choice is set! [Issue #269]

    The campaign is worth checking out, Operations delivers clear forward thinking for Battlefield as a series in a way I think Rush never really did, and the maps are absolutely spectacular. Battlefield One is utterly brilliant.

    Battlefield 1 has a conservative approach, despite its unusual historical setting. This means it is technically impressive and multiplayer is fun and spectacular. We also like the way the campaign is told, almost as a documentary.

    Battlefield 1 is a monumental shooter. Putting "aside" the Single Player campaign (fun, varied and spectacular but very short), the strengh of the production is obviously represented by the PvP. His large-scale battles are an experience that all multiplayer fans should try.

    Battlefield 1's solemn campaign and over-the-top multiplayer may feel like polar opposites, but the complete package is all-around excellent.

    Smoke-filled skies, destroyed buildings, ever-present dirt, trenches and heavily armored beasts, clouds of poisonous gas and panicked feeling that you’re being shot at from every direction and there’s not a square inch of ground that’s truly safe. The setting feels not just grim – more like apocalyptic. [Issue#214, p.52]

    It feels like being asked to play a game of football at a funeral and then made to keep the noise down when you score.

    I love this game. Truly a breath of fresh air and truly a piece of art. They really put their heart and soul into it. Even the singleI love this game. Truly a breath of fresh air and truly a piece of art. They really put their heart and soul into it. Even the single player campaign is passable, with decent, challenging (though maybe a bit too challenging) gameplay and genuinely powerful, human moments. The ambience is somber, archaic, and perfect. The only major flaw is that nearly every gun is locked at the beginning, and it takes forever to rank up. I miss the old set up where faction specific weapons for available right from the getgo, to add to the variety and ambience. Also, the limited number of maps is a bit grating, but no different than BF4. Expand

It is justBattlefield 4 is better, deeper and offers more possibilities. BF1 has no veichles, no map destruction, no attachments (very few). It is just a casual shooter. If you want rapid action and shot anything that is moving without thinking twice, BF1 is the game for you. If you are a BF4 player, dont waste your money. It is just as bad as hardline. Expand

I was very disappointed when it turned out, its just arcade shooter with players running for their death like lemmings. Unfortunately BF 1 is made just like Battlefront - mindless chaos without any tactics. Long time ago COD series died for me because of that reason, now BF joined it. Nice graphics is not enough to keep me playing. Expand

I thought this game was going to take it back to Battlefield 1942 with single shot rifles were every shot counted. Instead this game sold out and opted to use guns that are technically historically from the era but completely inaccurate. That is just one of many problems I had in my brief moments with this game.
