    2016’s Battlefield 1 was a refreshing revisit to the first World War that introduced new elements to the genre. Battlefield V refines some of those features, but doesn’t break any new innovative ground. It has enough content to keep you occupied, possesses a decent progression system that keeps you invested, and will receive free future DLC without a whiff of loot crates or microtransactions. However, it follows an expected blueprint that may quickly grow stale for players looking for a fresh FPS experience.

    Battlefield V is another fun entry in this well established shooter series. The problem is that it's full of bugs and feels unfinished at launch.

    Who knew that the horrors of war could ultimately end up being so goddamn beautiful?

    Ripe with potential but riddled with problems, the new Battlefield will be brilliant six months from now. Right now, however, it’s merely a good shooter. [Issue#157, p.83]

    EA and DICE seem to have lost sight of what made this series a true contender for the FPS crown, and both the gameplay and the content are suffering as a result.

    DICE almost always delivers when it comes to technology and multiplayer gameplay, and this is true with BFV. But Battlefield V is also plagued with bugs, looks half-finished and, overall, it gives the impression of a product that was rushed to the market.

    A game that aspires to be both a legitimate portrayal of war and an entertaining video game, but opts to take the easy route and do rid with any semblance of mature, balanced storytelling and instead replaces it with a rushed, disjointed campaign and a multiplayer component that’s getting seriously long in the tooth.

    Despite all the controversy, the game is very good.
    I think games should be evaluated as games.

    Great game with new mechanics improving the immersion to WW2. Hopefully we will see a good amount of extra content in the future as currentlyGreat game with new mechanics improving the immersion to WW2. Hopefully we will see a good amount of extra content in the future as currently it is a bit lacking. Adding female soldiers to a WW2 game was a questionable choice. Expand

    I am not quite sure where all this hate for the game is coming from players. There seems to be a hangup on historical inaccuracies which oneI am not quite sure where all this hate for the game is coming from players. There seems to be a hangup on historical inaccuracies which one finds incredibly hypocritical as the series has not been known for this in quite some time. The single player campaign is overall lackluster with a few memorable scenes and characters. Regarding the multiplayer though it is what you come to love and crave out of a Battlefield game.

    EDIT: Since playing this game for close to 40 hrs I have to confirm many of the other complaints and dropped my review from a 7 to a 5. The multiplayer maps are very limiting, and some are just plain bad. There are certain maps where the snow and dynamic lighting make it so you cannot even read the HUD on screen. Additionally, the class selection and weaponry is incredibly limited. I usually main a medic which I have reached level 20 in, and the fact that the only weapons I can select are SMGs with varying degrees of fire rate are incredibly disappointing. Sure I can slap on an ugly camo, but that is not enough regarding variety. Also, I am running into some significant bugs with actually reviving people, which is the same button as picking up their gear. Numerous time you pick up their weapon, they die, and cannot locate the original loadout to be gunned down in the process.
