    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.

    With the return to World War 2, Battlefield reaches a new zenith thanks to meaningful innovations - if one disregards the single player.

    Despite the bad press at the start, I have a lot of faith in Dice as a developer and they have delivered a fantastic shooter this year with Battlefield V after listening to their community and taking their feedback seriously.

    The Battlefield series has a winning formula that Battlefield V doesn't deviate far from, at least for now. Conquest and the map roster don't mesh well together, however, Grand Operations--and the other modes within it--steal the show and foster some of the greatest moments the franchise has offered.
  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 don't know why people are complaining about micro transactions here, there's no way to currently put more money into the game and DICE hasI don't know why people are complaining about micro transactions here, there's no way to currently put more money into the game and DICE has said when they do you will only be able to purchase cosmetics that you can already buy with in-game currency. The game is pretty good, there are spots that aren't as polished as they should be but that's been the case with every Battlefield title. As someone who has been playing these games since Battlefield 1942, this is a very strong entry that brings me back to that first title. I just hope they follow through with adding more factions via the Tides of War service. Expand

    Le campagne sono carine e danno un bel senso di libertà, ovviamente il comparto tecnico è mostruoso anche se avendolo giocato prima del lancioLe campagne sono carine e danno un bel senso di libertà, ovviamente il comparto tecnico è mostruoso anche se avendolo giocato prima del lancio ho riscontrato diversi bug fastidiosi ed in alcuni casi invalidanti. Ottimo togliere il premium dal gioco, FINALMENTE. Non è un gioco che si può considerare storico e punta sul divertimento, quindi non vi aspettate molto da questo punto di vista. Il multiplayer è bello anche se a volte i server laggano. Mi è piaciuta la classe del cecchino che ora è più un supporto per individuare nemici, in questo capitolo non troveremo quindi metà giocatori a fare i cecchini visto che questa classe ha più una funzione di spotting, tutto sommato direi che è un buon gioco anche se avrei garbato un sacco più campagne al lancio (almeno il doppio) che sono veramente belle.

    This is genuinely the worst experience I have had in gaming, and by a massive margin.

    -every update has had game-breaking issues from disappearing enemies to constant stuttering
    -every promised map or feature has been delayed by months or indefinitely, still not one single full scale map has been released for the game and it's a year old
    -the optimization is non-existent, this game runs like absolute **** and looks worse than BF1 both in fidelity and aesthetic
    -realism is totally nonexistent but the tone is dark and gloomy making the game dull and depressing
    -gunplay is great BUT this is wasted since there is NO ANTI CHEAT, and there are no chinese servers. guess who ruins every game?
    -community is full of toxic players and bullies, and I understand why they're all pissed. I am too
    -community managers outright lie to the community constantly, exactly none of their promises have ever been fulfilled
    -this game is full price and they have the nerve to add paid microtransactions more than weekly while the game remains broken a year post-release

    Genuinely 0/10 garbage, stay away. This game is not even good for free or on a 90% off sale, it is a bad experience, period.

    UPDATE:
    It now has some more maps, but none of the core issues have been resolved. NONE.

    -No anti cheat, still
    -Bugs galore
    -Broken map designs including geometry errors and outright instability
    -All the servers are only two maps, so most of the game is actually literally unplayable since you can't join any games on anything else

    This game is cancer.

    The socio-political agenda pushed by DICE+EA and their constant demeaning of long time fans, in itself, is sufficient to never buy an EA orThe socio-political agenda pushed by DICE+EA and their constant demeaning of long time fans, in itself, is sufficient to never buy an EA or DICE game again. But I pushed that aside and signed up for Origin access to try out this game just for one month. The game is unfinished, buggy, badly designed and far from being fun. In fact, its actually painful to play this game. You will often find yourself angry and in disbelief as to how a studio that made BF4 and BF3, made this garbage.
    The time to death is insanely low, you will die too often within one frame without getting any time to react. The game encourages camping because its very hard to see players that don't move. No 3D spotting except for snipers with spotting scope - who rarely use them to help the team. DICE is forcing teamwork on players but most randoms don't care about teamwork or voip chat at all. Those who do will only point out the enemy who killed them so that you can seek revenge on his behalf.
    Medics don't heal and support won't supply ammo because they get very few points (10) for doing that. Medic weapons are nerf guns only good for CQC maps and the revive animation will get you killed so revives are rare. It seems DICE achieved the exact opposite of the teamwork they intended. The gunplay is good when you get the drop on the enemy player but most of the time its who sees who first.
    You get needlessly stuck on certain terrain in maps which shows that they were not properly tested. You catch on fire if you stand next to fire in certain areas as if you dunked in gasolene before the battle for some reason. You get 'killed in action' if something like a barrel next to you explodes. You get insta-killed too many times as soon as you spawn. This stuff happens just too often for the game to be any fun.
    Planes - especially bombers - were OP at launch and then got huge nerfs in the patch to point that they are now useless. Tanks have no choice but to camp far from positions where they could get insta-rekt by assault players. The attrition system has also not encouraged teamwork - instead everyone camps the supply points because they know their teammates might not support. Besides, supply points replenish ammo fully compared to a supply crate from a support player which only gives you one gadget and starts the cooldown clock.
    Zerging is the only alternative to camping in this game because of all the issues mentioned above. Its as though DICE devs never play their own games and keep coming up with new idiotic ideas. In BF1 it was behemoths and hero kits. Here it is the attrition system, removal of spotting, broken revives, smaller squads, buggy maps and terrain, useless vehicles to name a few.
    The terrible UI and server browser where you still cant see the progress of a game before joining; so you join to find the game is over and most players have left. I could go on and on about this game but DICE has a history of bad launches and eventually fixing the issues over several months. But by then the price has dropped to $10 and most serious players have moved on.
    This game is bad, really bad. If you paid full price, you have only yourself to blame, given the history of DICE and EA. I am thinking I till wait till it goes down to $5 - which is probably very soon. But then no one will be playing the game. Very disappointing. Like watching an alcoholic friend self-destruct. You hope they will reform but they never do and keep self-destructing until the tragic end which actually seems merciful somehow.
