    This is simply giddy, cartoonish mayhem with an extremely low bar for entry.
  2. 80
    A lively and dynamic version of the series stripped down to the undeniably appealing essentials.
  3. You may not be able to argue with its price, but you'll certainly be surprised with how addictive Battlefield Heroes can be.
  4. 70
    This is not the best multiplayer game around there, neither it is better that other entries in the Battlefield saga, but it is a good effort to make the game available to a wider public.
  5. Battlefield Heroes is a casual gamer title. All the Battlefield series hardcore gamers will find this title pretty boring and poor of contents and tactics. But it's completely free-to-play, so it worth a try from everyone.
  6. Battlefield Heroes does quite a good job when it comes to entertaining the players for a short while, but with only a few maps and not that many weapons this "Free 2 Play" game comes a bit short. The game offers not that much diversity and if you want to spend your money on microtransactions there is mostly just new outfits to choose from.
  7. The game we've been presented with works against itself more often than it does not.

    How could a style of gamplay so rote and repetitive possibly be so addicting? I typically regard shooter games with disdain, but BattlefieldHow could a style of gamplay so rote and repetitive possibly be so addicting? I typically regard shooter games with disdain, but Battlefield Heroes is a rare gem amongst the gritty, testosterone-leaded, M-rated FPS games that other teenage boys have such an affinity for. This game doesn't take itself seriously in the slightest - it's all goofy, lighthearted bloodless silliness with the air of some sort of Pixar movie. In the kill cams, for example, players can play silly emotes to taunt their victims. It'll really appeal to casual gamers. The only problem is that all the good weapons can only be bought with battlefunds, which in turn must be bought with real money - but that problem is fixed, now, because you are now able to get battlefunds for free by completing surveys.

    Excellent TF2 inspired graphics. That is the only positive thing I can say about this game. The game is terribly unbalanced, and simple stupidExcellent TF2 inspired graphics. That is the only positive thing I can say about this game. The game is terribly unbalanced, and simple stupid design choices such as that you are restricted to a single class through the whole game, a single nation for that matter, is just so stupid. And the matchmaking is terrible, you sometimes end up in 3 vs 8 matches, because you are restricted to a single side per each character. Expand

    Battlefield is an online shooter in cartoon style. The upside of this game is that the design is rather unique and fun. But a major flaw inBattlefield is an online shooter in cartoon style. The upside of this game is that the design is rather unique and fun. But a major flaw in this game is the lack of balance in the gameplay. Firstly, EA has created so called ´´uber weapons´´, which can be purchased in the store and provide significant advantages, compared to the standard versions of the weapon. More benefits means more cost. Additionally, the game servers are somewhat feeble. Often this is not a problem. But there is nothing as annoying as lagg right when you are trying to snipe someone down. Furthermore, the game is somewhat ´´fraud-sensitive''. Cheating is the broadest sense of the word is rife throughout the whole game.
    All of this contributes to the detriment of the gamer. EA has created in environment in which flaws in the game can be exploited to such an extent that ultimately you can only remain competitive through cheating and profligacy. The concept of the game was good, simple and entertaining. Unfortunately, skill has little reward in this game.
