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.

    I have never played a first person shooter that told a story and felt almost as if I was in that war in the sandiest place in the world. II have never played a first person shooter that told a story and felt almost as if I was in that war in the sandiest place in the world. I have yet to play the campaign, but I don't really want to anyway. The mutliplayer is fairly stable (apart from the interesting moment I met a flying bike which made me giggle endlessly), however I don't actually know if it is realistic. Graphically, hell yeah it does. The guns are actually guns and not someone opening a crisp packet, which is the average from a first person shooter. I'm going to be honest, some weapons (like that boat) are a tad bit overpowered and stupid in some ways, but this is me just picking for some small things. Well done DICE, you did a good thing... mostly Expand

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!

This game is a genre-defining experience with moving storylines in the campaign which help reveal the people in and the horrors of WW1.

    Only criticism - a short campaign which limits its hard hitting plots. A longer campaign would result in a perfect game. MUST BUY.

    8/10.
    Battlefield 1 n'est pas mon premier BF, et pas non plus mon préféré.
    Tout d'abord le solo ; j'ai aimé, mais je n'ai pu l'aimer que quelques heures, puisqu'il ne se termine qu'en de très petites heures.. Bon solo, l'histoire est sympa, sans plus, pas mal de plans, mais les personnages ne restent pas, et n'ont pas vocation à rester gravés dans notre mémoire de gamer. Le solo a un peu le mérite d'exister.. Dommage.

    Cependant, ce qui augmente la note, c'est le multijoueur, sans doute l'âme de ce Battlefield, depuis selon moi Battlefield 3, dans l'esprit de son temps somme toute.
    Pas mal d'armes, même si ce sont souvent les mêmes que l'on voit dans le jeu, quelques maps sympas, mais pas assez à mon goût. Le gameplay est bon, la connexion tient la route (Xbox One), les graphismes sont bons, pas ouf mais bons.
    Les DLC sont cool, mais à ne pas acheter trop chers (tout comme le jeu, à 70 euros le multijoueurs c'est un peu excessif), ils ne valent pas 50 euros (20 euros c'est pas mal du tout, nouvelles armes, nouvelles maps, bref pas mal du tout ce contenu).

    Globalement, c'est un bon jeu, les mises à jour ne sont pas quotidiennes et censées, le multijoueurs est sympa, et le solo absent et c'est dommage.
    Le prix est en baisse, et 20 à 30 euros c'est honnête je pense.

    General: The Battlefield 1 is a great step in its franchise. The unique setting of WW1 is fresh and unique for the first person shooters. OfGeneral: The Battlefield 1 is a great step in its franchise. The unique setting of WW1 is fresh and unique for the first person shooters. Of course, the history books go into the trash bin after this game but it encourages you to learn more about this event. Of course, this game isn't a documentary and it's all about the fun but I have a great consideration about fun in this game. Although, I would recommend for anyone with the good internet and access to the smooth multiplayer.
    Single player: As a history book that I've mentioned earlier you are thrown into a trash bin. Most of my experience with the game is my rage about the offline part. All of the stories are short, with lacking gameplay, and pretty much uninteresting. They aren't connected with each other in any way. Most of the "war stories" are concentrated on the general events but the writing is making a huge turn over to people and their own "feelings" which isn't making any sense because the most of the attention goes to the event that is happening. Visually: this game looks gorgeous and quite the adventure for your eyes is guaranteed. But the gameplay is lacking and it feels like a tutorial for the multiplayer with nice cutscenes. I personally would cut the "stories" part from the Battlefield franchise and replace it with the more ways to play the best part of the game offline or in co-op. That's why actually Battlefield games up to Bad Company never died out. Bad Company and Bad Company 2 have, on the other hand, great storyline.
    Multiplayer: The "Gem". The buyout. The best part of this game.
    Great visuals, gameplay, variety. Everything that you've ever wanted is here. It needs to be experienced. However, the gameplay was built more callofdutyish than ever before. "the one man army" syndrome is here. Stupidly fast-paced gameplay for the battlefield, spray and pray without thinking. Someday, this too big franchises will collapse and would be played the same way. Of course, EA wouldn't be itself if the loot boxes weren't included and a Premium pass that includes 4 DLC that was cut from the game. "Everything for the player"
    My score:
    +Good sound, +Great visuals, +Multiplayer gem, +Variety, +Fun and chaos, +Details,+DLC content isn't lacking for its prices
    -Loot boxes and a stupid "business" economy. " We make money, not games" EA
    -Lack of the Offline content
    -Servers aren't populated, DLC hosting servers are empty,

Go play those games instead if you want to have fun for a longer period, the servers are still full in those games Expand
