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

    I’m absolutely impressed by every aspect of Battlefield 1. While it’s easy to think that the weapons and machines available to a game based on the first World War might feel like a step back for military shooters, I think you’ll be surprised by how exciting and modern Battlefield 1 still manages to feel.

    DICE takes aim with Battlefield 1 and it ends up being a jackpot. It couldn't be a better game taking into consideration the limitations imposed due to the game taking place during WWI. It offers some of the best maps ever seen in the franchise. Tons of charisma for a franchise that stands tall against the dictatorship of sci-fi and double jump.

    Battlefield 1 is a hugely refreshing take on not only the series but the shooter genre in general.

    Set in the past but still a defining modern day shooter. Smart and uproariously entertaining. [Christmas 2016, p.62]

    The blessing and curse of Battlefield 1 is that it is another well-polished entry in a series that clearly follows a sacred gameplay formula. Fans who have enjoyed the series thus far will find the same enjoyment in this latest entry, and aspects of World War I have clearly been carefully curated and incorporated into the game. However, it does feel that the series is playing things too safe. As good as the multiplayer is, I'm hopeful that future entries will take more risk. In the meantime, Battlefield 1 is another great offering that follows the series' enjoyable gameplay template.

    Battlefield 1 is a fantastic game. If you want a shooter that replicates the epic scale of two armies at war, or one that prioritises tactical thought over twitchy trigger fingers, this is the FPS for you.

По началу когда начинаешь играть в BF1, у тебя глаза разбегаются из-за масштабности карты. Ты не понимаешь куда бежать, где занять хорошую позицию.

Since the launch of the new generation consoles there hasn't been a game that has exceeded my expectations until now. DICE has done a tremendous job at delivering wonderful product. We are taken back to The Great War in an immersive environment filled with jaw dropping gameplay. There is quite a bit of content which will keep me engaged for quite awhile. Excellent job DICE!

    Battlefield 1 is a nice change of pace from the deluge of Modern/Futuristic shooters that have flooded the market recently. Having it takeBattlefield 1 is a nice change of pace from the deluge of Modern/Futuristic shooters that have flooded the market recently. Having it take place in a time period that is often not touched by developers is a welcome change of pace. It has a decent amount of content to keep one invested, and the two map packs that recently came out change enough to make them good, if unnecessary editions to the game.

    In terms of graphics, the game is gorgeous, and often times looks like it could be photo realistic. There is some minor issues with character model glitches but other than that it is still fantastic. The sound design is great as well, with all the guns sounding like they have real firepower behind them.

    The gameplay is also very good, though a bit arcade-y. Being able to drive and fly in vehicles from the time period is great, and the shooting is a lot of fun, but the prevalence of automatic firearms is a bit odd considering the time period wouldn't have that many and mostly had bolt action rifles. The spawning of vehicles and planes from outside the map is also something I'm personally not a fan of, as I like having the vehicles on map to get in at any time. But the overall gameplay is fun and is challenging enough to make you want to come back.

    The Campaign, or "War Stories", are an interesting addition. Most of them are pretty well made, having a good production value behind them, though I feel like focusing on only 1 of the campaigns, and making it longer and have better character development would've been a better idea. The lack of any campaign for the central powers was also a missed opportunity, especially considering the rather "Gray" nature of the first World War.

    Overall, it is a fun game and a nice addition to the Battlefield franchise, and I think we will see a rise in shooting games from the world war period again due to its success, and nowadays, I think this will be a welcome change.

    you couldn't do anything with your weapons some you could change the scope that's about it. The weapon skins were lame the vehicle skins were lame. You may as well just stick with the base weapons. Do not buy if you like progression or customizablilty one thing that ill say that is good is that the game looks really good. I wasted my money on this game and it was on sale.
