    While Hardline certainly isn’t your standard Battlefield experience, the changes and tweaks present here are welcome additions, breathing new life into the franchise that’ll entice both veteran and new players alike.

    While Hardline isn’t the Battlefield you may be used to it offers a unique approach that will surely please fans of the genre. The campaign is a big step up from previous entries and while the multiplayer anarchy has been trimmed down, the gameplay in its place is more tactical and intimate.

    An engaging narrative, beautiful visuals, varied gameplay, and top-notch multiplayer (that works well) all fit together to deliver one of the biggest and best experiences to be had this year thus far.

    Hardline might not reinvent the wheel the series rolls on, but it certainly makes it spin a whole lot smoother. Speeded up gameplay, an opened-up single-player, and a robust suite of new multiplayer modes lends itself to the best Battlefield to date—though that’s not saying much, a decade later.

    A passable and unspectacular campaign is unlikely to win any new fans, but Hardline's fresh take on Battlefield multiplayer makes it worth a shot. [Issue#256, p.68]

    Multiplayer is, of course, the main reason that you buy into a Battlefield game, and it's generally enjoyable, even if it doesn't do anything to revolutionise the genre. However, both Activision and EA, and every other FPS developer that aspires to become the top dog franchise, needs to learn that if they are going to persist in putting single player narratives into their games, then they need to do a far better job.

    We can see in its lack of substance a reflection of a disturbing social complacency when it comes to exploring complicated issues like police violence and systemic racism. We can also recognize what little faith it has in its players to wrestle with difficult concepts, to find something meaningful and troubling behind using a digital badge and police-issued firearm in equal measure to solve our crime problems.

    I don't get why all the haters? Why so mad? This is way better then COD advance warfare. What are you guys expecting? The story is amazing,I don't get why all the haters? Why so mad? This is way better then COD advance warfare. What are you guys expecting? The story is amazing, the online play is great. The graphics are pretty cool for a shooter game. Probably one of the very few games that was worth the pick up at midnight. Don't listen to the bad reviews if you see they are going off a beta. Anyone that's play the full game will give it a honey rating between 8-10. If you know battlefield history this is by far the best one and a great change. It's a little GTA with Payday mix in. Great team game. The story is pretty fun. Great game go pick it up and you won't be mad. Great things always have the biggest haters remember that. And enjoy and look me up on ps4. Expand

    I gave the same score but I like Hardline a bit better then BF4, because is more simplistic in multiplayer.
    Anyway it is a same boring game.

    Battlefield Hardline ou comment vous vendre un DLC de Battlefield 4 au prix fort...
    Pour être franc, je n'ai testé que la bêta de ce jeu ne souhaitant pas dépenser de l'argent pour un stand alone tout juste moyen.
    A déconseiller si vous posséder déjà Battlefiel 4 pour le multijoueurs vous serez déçu :/

On se fait donc -toujours- autant chier dans le multi d'un Battledaube, c'est là sa marque de fabrique avec ses cartes immenses et sa confusion ambiante.

    Question solo du Battletron annuel, c'est Visceral qui s'y colle avec une orientation flicarde qui a au moins le mérite de varier par rapport à la sempiternelle zone de guerre -gros couloir de guerre pardon- une orientation très scriptée comme de coutume et très dirigiste. Si dans l'absolu, la jouabilité et la maniabilité ne posent pas de problème, elles s'avèrent vieillotes et quelque peu dépassées lorsqu'on les compare à un Halo 4/5 ou un Far Cry 3. Pour une franchise spécialisée dans le "FPS", cela commence à faire désordre après toutes ces années.

    Ce qui n'empêche pas une réalisation -comme à leur habitude- impressionnante que ce soit en solo ou multi, gâchée cependant par la résolution faiblarde (720p !) raison et conséquence d'un crénelage assez sensible. Toutefois, l'ensemble restant à 60 im/s malgré de rares ralentissements, on peut s'estimer "satisfait". Ambiance sonore excellente et voix françaises impeccables.

    Toujours dans un souci de se diversifier, ce Battleprout introduit quelques mécaniques de furtivité qui ne fonctionnent pas : Visceral totalement novice dans ce domaine devrait demander quelques conseils à Ubisoft ou Bethesda. Un coup dans l'eau donc.

    Battlemerde reste ainsi fidèle à lui-même et -toujours- enlisé dans le marasme de sa médiocrité crasse qui se révèle d'année en année de plus en plus... irrécupérable.
