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.

    Wow!! This game is amazing. Since the launch of the new generation consoles there hasn't been a game that has exceeded my expectations untilWow!! This game is amazing. 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!

    story mode is interesting but too short. it shows the war from all side of the conflict but it feels like a slapped on add-on just to havestory mode is interesting but too short. it shows the war from all side of the conflict but it feels like a slapped on add-on just to have single player mode. The game is intense and personal with brutal up close compat. The graphics are phenomenal on PS4 Pro. I own 1080p 3D TV and I am playing entire single player in 3D . I cannot stress enough how good the game looks with 3D enabled on PS4 Pro. if you own 3D TV try to play the game that way. You will walk away impressed. The game is short though. just like previous battlefield games the single player missions feel like an add-on slapped to multiplayer. Overall great addition to Battlefield franchise. I did not buy Battlefield for last two years but i am glad i did buy Battlefield 1. Expand

    I have not played battlefield in a long time so i decided to put down this game as one of the games i wanted to get and i eventually got itI have not played battlefield in a long time so i decided to put down this game as one of the games i wanted to get and i eventually got it and to be honest it left a lot to be desired and it wasn't the game i was expecting it to be. Here are my likes and dislikes about the game:

    Likes:
    -You can run over ANYTHING with the tanks which is very satisfying
    -The sound effects are great. If you fired in a enclosed space your rifle will be louder whereas if you were to shoot in an open field you can hear the sound spread across the lands.
    -The cut scene visuals are some of the best i have ever seen.
    -Friends in high places is my favorite story as you get to battle in the air.

    Dislikes:
    -There are a multitude of war stories to play and different characters for each war story. Since this is the case you don't get attached to the characters or the story at all. This was something new to me as i have never played so many characters in a game. I tried to get attached to them and the story, but i just couldn't. Eventually it got to the point where i just wanted to be done with the game because i didn't want to play the game anymore than i needed to. I think there should've been one main story.
    -When the history of the war is displayed they don't give you enough time to read it. So if you are a slow reader you are going to have to read faster.
    -not being able to pause during most cut scenes was kind of annoying, but it wasn't a huge turn off by any means.

    With all this being said the lack of bonding between characters and the short story is why i gave this game a 7/10.

    Una oportunidad tirada a la basura, Una campaña olvidable y corta, que apenas al final del capitulo 3 te hace sentir algo. Vendieron el juegoUna oportunidad tirada a la basura, Una campaña olvidable y corta, que apenas al final del capitulo 3 te hace sentir algo. Vendieron el juego con trailers de la campaña para esto? Encima el multijugador es un Battlefront 2, simple, casual, sin personalizacion, pocas armas, pocos mapas y dlcs abusivos. Arruinaron mi saga favorita, gracias EA. Expand
