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

    That multiplayer is spectacular. All the expected Deathmatch-ish modes are here, including War Pigeon, a take on Capture the Flag. But the deep Operations mode takes center stage; this mode takes time to play, but it also mirrors war, with one side defending.

    Battlefield 1 offers an incredibly epic and balanced multiplayer experience, with a great focus both on close quarters ans vehicular fights and with the Operations mode as its crown jewel. Its too short campaign won't satisfy single player lovers, but if you're looking for a good multiplayer FPS this is the game to have.

    Battlefield 1 isn’t just a great addition to the series, it arrives as a thunderous explosion that will impact the military shooter space for many years to come. A memorable single player campaign in an FPS is a rarity, and it delivers that without compromise. Operations is an instant classic for multiplayer lovers, while the other modes will keep you invested, supported by fantastic gameplay. Visually breathtaking and fun to play, DICE has delivered an instant classic that has raised the bar.

    Battlefield 1 is a solid shooter with a good campaign and a gorgeous multiplayer mode. The first world war, with its roughness and dirtiness, is a perfect fit for a Battlefield experience.

    If there is one shooter to be had this year, it is Battlefield 1. The series’ return to classically-styled warfare is a breathe of fresh air for both the franchise and the FPS genre. The solo experience(s) are enjoyable and serve as a primer for the larger, more enjoyable multiplayer experience. That multiplayer options feel like more than just a simple mode thanks to the new Operations mode, but are more like a living and breathing world that will keep players hooked for a long, long time.

    If the Campaign is a little disappointing, the online multiplayer, the maps and the graphics are absolutely great.
  7. 70
    A shift to shorter, more intimate stories alongside the impressive visual and audio presentation make Battlefield 1 one of the more enjoyable single player shooters from DICE in quite some time. While multiplayer is far less ambitious than we've seen in years prior, it still scratches that itch for Battlefield fans who crave the chaos and cooperation that only this series can deliver.

    Battlefield 1 which dawns on the combat of “The Great War”or commonly known as World War 1.EA Dice discovered a fresh game design with the new genre of gameplay compared the past future or modern shooters in the past 10 years.

    The Game developers have found a new and fun way to play with an extensive campaign featuring 6 war stories that show each theatre of combat in the 1914-18 war.The stories including 5-6 missions showing many ways to play so the player feels they are in a free world,Sneaking through a German encampment to find mechanical parts for your tank ‘Bess’ or playing as a volounteerl in the Italian Arditi (“The Daring Ones”) fighting up the mountains against the Austro-Hungarian forces in a full armor suit composed of steel.

    On the other side the new 40-64 player multiplayer showing off the new “Operations” gamemode has completely blown players away.Drawing on all aspects of the war Operations provides you with the use of Armored Cars,Tanks including the A7V Heavy Tank help you capture the objectives and take the sectors to win the game.With the huge array of vehicles let’s talk about what you get if you don’t spawn in one.Players have a choice of 4 classes to choose from.Assault which utilizes sub-machine guns and explosives,Medic with mid ranged rifles and med packs,Support shows off LMGs and ammo crates and Scout utilizes the snipers and flares to spot enemies.If you decide to rank one of these classes up to rank 10 you’re rewarded with a rank 10 weapon including the Hellriegel,Selbstlater 1906,Huot Automatic,and the Martini-Henry.The impressive amount of weapons adds a lot of variety and fluid gameplay to lead your team to victory.

    EA Dice.The developer of the Battlefield franchise uses the Frostbite engine to add the almost realistic graphics to make you feel like your are in the game.Battlefield’s gameplay is the most action packed and flowing battlefield game I’ve ever played since I started playing with Battlefield:Bad Company 2.Even though the game has a lot of positive things going for it there are quite a few bad things that can happen.For instance,sometimes when you spawn in your screen will be all black and you can only see your teammates icons,objective icons and spotted enemies.Another is sometimes you’ll lag out of place and end up falling out of the map or if your trying to destroy an enemy tank your explosives won’t do anything.

    I received Battlefield 1 for my birthday and ever since I’ve only dealt with the bugs and glitches a few times and everything else has been amazing.The game is quite pricey at $60 but it’s worth it .I'm already level 54 and even though it takes longer to level up it becomes more exciting the longer you play to try and level up.Anyways my review on this game is mostly positive but if you want a fully detailed experience i recommend getting the game for yourself.

    Battlefield 1 is one of EA’s and DICE’s best games if not the best game that they have ever made. It’s an amazing mix of graphics andBattlefield 1 is one of EA’s and DICE’s best games if not the best game that they have ever made. It’s an amazing mix of graphics and addictiveness for the players, a range of many different things in the game give it a long lasting effect making you want to try out everything inside the game.
    There are many things in Battlefield 1 that give the players a huge amount of options on how, who and what they want to play with or what they want to play full stop. The game modes available are: conquest, rush, war pigeons, team death match, domination, operations and campaign of course. Conquest is a large team battle over huge maps of which vary widely with the terrains. In this game the teams will fight to gain control of the flags whilst killing each other and gaining points from killing the other team and then depending on how many flags your team has your score will slowly go up or quickly go up due to the ownership of the flags. The campaign of the game is an excellent re-enactment of the great war, yes it is a little over exaggerated with all of the shooting and drama but people who play first person shooters don’t normally want to be jut educated, they want to be thrilled with what they’re playing and maybe have a little bit of learning on the way. Battlefield 1 gives the perfect mix between shooting and the experience itself, as soon as you start the story of the game you’ll want to go into the next stories and I’m very sure of that, they are exhilarating and very dramatic making you infused into the game making your own decisions over the large map of which you play in.
    The content of the multiplayer is absolutely amazing, there are tons of different weapons to unlock and tons of weapons to play around with and loads of different pieces of gear to create your very own class from, you can switch to planes and to tanks and to trains and boats and even a zeppelin, there are mounted turrets in places on the maps leaving hidden but powerful siege areas, the teams are well balanced and the mix of different classes between the huge teams makes the game even harder but at the same time so much better as it’s not too challenging but it’s definitely not too easy.
    The price of the game is now around 30-25 pounds which isn’t bad at all, its starting price was around 55-60 which for the game itself and new was still a very reasonable price. It has a range of everything and it is all built to perfection and that’s one of the only problems with the game, on Xbox 1 it runs great with a good or great Wi-Fi but if yours isn’t great or good then its likely to lag or glitch a little when in game, when on PC there’s a large problem if you don’t have a very good PC because the game has pretty much no chance of running… at all. I suggest that if you would like this game you either need an Xbox 1 or a very good PC.
    The graphics of the game are insanely good and the huge maps look stunning with all of the visual effects, the sounds are amazing and set with obvious perfection into all of the correct guns and gear and the correct places, it could be real if it wasn’t inside a screen, the game itself is visually stunning and that’s an understatement!
    In conclusion I would highly recommend that you get this game if you like first person shooters because it’s a whole new experience for any player!

In un periodo in cui un sacco di FPS, che hanno unaBattlefield 1 è una ventata d' aria fresca per gli FPS, soprattuto nel multiplayer. In un periodo in cui un sacco di FPS, che hanno una campagna singleplayer orribile, o che addirittura non ce l'hanno, consistono SOLTANTO nello sparare ( mi sto riferendo a tutti i Cod futuristici che continuano a uscire, senza contare Codww2), Battlefield 1 ci porta una COLOSSALE modalità multiplayer, possente e allo stesso tempo innovativa; ma anche una bellissima campagna singleplayer. Il multiplayer ci mette a disposizione varie modalità di gioco, come il classico deathmatch o dominio, ma i punti forti sono tre (senza contare i DLC): conquista su larga scala, piccioni di guerra e operazioni.
    La modalità operazioni è a dir poco FANTASTICA (senza parlare delle altre modalità), proprio qui troviamo tutta l' innovazione e tutta la forza di questo multiplayer. Questa modalità ha una struttura di gioco che non si trova facilmente in un altro gioco, il che la rende unica. Una delle cose che adoro di più sono i momenti che si vengono a creare durante la partita di operazioni. Ci saranno UN SACCO di momenti assolutamente EPICI, per esempio, quando si conquista un settore e tutto l' esercito carica urlando, mentre i capitani delle squadre lanciano ordini usando il loro fischietto, con una musica di sottofondo bellissima e azzecatissima; oppure negli inseguimenti aerei, dove a volte vi ritroverete a dover fare manovre assurde per abbattere il vostro nemico; oppure quando vedrete i dirigibili esplodere in una nube di fuoco e fumo e cadere sul campo di battaglia... ci sono centinaia di questi momenti epici, che non ci sono in altri giochi mulitplayer, e che sembrano presi da un film. Inoltre, in questo gioco si deve ragionare da squadra, e non da lupo solitario che va in giro e che spara e uccide a caso, come si fa in Cod; perchè giocando di squadra si possono cambiare le sorti di una partita: mi è successo un sacco di volte di perdere partite all' ultimo momento perchè la squadra avversaria stava tutta sull' obiettivo, senza dividersi, anche con l'aiuto di un Behemoth (che è un' aggiunta fantastica).
    La grafica impeccabile, Frostbite eccellente che ci regala panorami e ambientazioni da urlo e musica FANTASTICA, che si addice PERFETTAMENTE ai vari momenti del gioco.
    Ora passiamo al singleplayer: il singleplayer è anch'esso bellissimo, con una struttura anche qui nuova, che ci offre una visuale più ampia della Prima Guerra Mondiale, portandoci in ogni fronte di essa, staccandosi dall' ormai solita campagna americana. Nel singleplayer giocheremo sul fronte turco (come Lawrence d' Arabia), sul fronte italiano, giocheremo nei panni della Royal Air Force, nei panni di una squadra di carristi inglesi, e infine, nei panni di un australiano a Gallipoli. Queste cinque campagne sono una più bella dell' altra, con delle storie coinvolgenti e con dei finali BELLISSIMI, che rimarranno impressi nelle nostre menti per un bel po'. Dopo aver completato tutte le campagne avremo accesso a un BELLISSIMO video che rende onore a tutti i soldati della Grande Guerra.
    Due dei pochi difetti della campagna sono che non è molto lunga, è che l' intelligenza artificiale non è molto brillante, anche in modalità difficile. Concludendo, questo nuovo Battlefield sconfina nella sottovalutata Prima Guerra Mondiale, portandoci un' esperienza godibilissima, curata ma soprattutto unica.

In fact game play/strategy wise its not as complex as BF4 and other BF's. The vehicles are not that interesting compared to the multi weapon helicopters etc of other games. Single player is just as pointless as always and just like a interactive cut scene.

    Overall its the best looking Battlefield but nowhere near the best gameplay.
