    Battlefield Hardline is a worthwhile entry in the series that shouldn't be passed over by fans.

    Battlefield Hardline offers a fun single-player experience. Arresting suspects could have used some extra polish, as it's way too easy to manipulate the AI to surrender. The multiplayer mode is quite fun as well, but it suffers from lack of content and for the fact that it plays out like a stripped down version of Battlefield 4. The game's heritage aside, Battlefield Hardline is by no means a poor effort. [May 2015]

    Hardline is a Battlefield game in every sense of the word. The campaign is still not worth anything near the asking price, it has some annoyances and it’s meant to be played with friends in a squad. Just like BF: Vietnam and BF: 2142, it does not reinvent the wheel, but it does enough unique things to be called its own, and if you’re looking for chaotic multiplayer fun, you can never go wrong with Battlefield Hardline.

    Visceral have created a perfectly good functioning Battlefield game in Hardline. It shoots as good as the best of them, the car-chases are fun, and the small tweaks made to the core formula are very welcome. But a little refinement does not mask that this is a very similar game to what we bought in 2013; despite the strong efforts to make a variety of new game modes, you can’t shake the feeling of playing classic Battlefield.

    It’s not your typical Battlefield, but if you don’t mind trading military uniform for a police badge, you can buy the game and enjoy long hours of fun playing cops and robbers online. The single player campaign is not worth your time. [05/2015, p.54]
  6. Hardline‘s release was smooth, and although it did feel like a modified BF4, it also plays like something novel and worthwhile all on its own.

    Hardline works best in its multiplayer portion where it abandons the pretensions of police work and storytelling. Playing Battlefield online is stepping into a sprawling tempest of gunfire with 63 other players. Here, violence has a cross-canceling effect, in which neither side is granted automatic authority and every power and ability can be questioned by the other side.

People who hate it are either paid by Activi$ion or just brain dead. This is a subtle mix of Call of Duty, Payday 2 and Battlefield. The multiplayer is like Close Quarters in BF3, which was nicely rated when it was released. The action is much more dynamic than in previous games, cause maps are smaller, not like in BF3/4 where you could camp e.g. on the mountains in Operation Firestorm map and snipe all the players walking around. The gadgets for all classes are nice, and the easter egg with sofa is just lovely :P Expand

The first BF where aHardline as an independent game is very not bad as a part of the Battlefield series she looks too ordinary and empty. The first BF where a singlpleer looks better, than a multiplayer. A game came out much optimized, than the 4th part. And frankly speaking all have ignored her, and it is the best BF after BF3 and BC2. She originally looks, she is cheerful. She is purely INFANTRY, and it for many plus. But support of the product at EA wishes to be the best. On Win 7 and 8.1 I had no big problems. But as soon as I have passed to Win10 constant problems have begun. About 1511 versions of system I can't start a game on one computer or the laptop. Upon for me this game is closed since 2016, even the hard reset of Windows doesn't help. EA you the best, after BF Hardline and BF1 I won't buy not one game from you! Expand
