    Most beautiful story of all first person shooters

    This game absolutely surpassed every other ps4 game to date. When I purchased the ps4 about a year ago, I wasn't that impressed going from the ps3 and xbox 360 to the ps4. I was concerned it was overhyped and may not have been the best purchase. I am a very avid gamer, with my wife as well, and have since purchased dozens of games for the system, all of which I think would have been just as well on ps3 as on ps4, just smoother graphics operations on the ps4 due to technology advancement. THIS IS THE GAME I WAS WAITING FOR!! The very moment it began the first story (there's five), I knew that someone had finally made something worthy of purchasing the ps4. The graphics will blow your mind. Beautiful landscapes that show every little bit of detail and color changes that nobody before has met to my expectations. Seamless and fluid transitions from section to section, never slowing down or degrading the graphics (like other games do to make it seem like the games graphics are better than they really are that make them cartoonish). This game is, without a doubt, the best game I have ever played. It's not like another major FPS that comes out with the same game every year with a few minor changes that doesn't really put any effort in the story, you know which one I'm talking about. The stories were incredible, showing some things that soldiers and marines went through on the ground during world war one. Dice did a really good job putting forth the effort, no Honor, to make this game like a memorial to fully appreciate those that sacrificed everything to change the world during the war. My wife almost started crying during a story, because the game showed the full heartbreak of the men when the smoke cleared and they were able to see the devastation and death of those they depended on and loved like brothers, and made it feel like you were right there with them experiencing it. It's not just a one time play and you never touch it again. The game includes things that you have to find during the missions that can help you in multiplayer, so if you miss them, you have to go back through the story some time later to find those items, its a very good incentive to replay it, which I can see myself playing it several times over the years even without that. On to the multiplayer. Again, it's very smooth, a little confusing at first how to actually change your weapons around, not just the little bar on the bottom, you actually have to go into customize screen to "purchase" your weapons for the assault, medic, support, sniper mods. Once that was figured out it's a pretty standard FPS in actions only: i.e. capture the flag type conquer, rush, that sort of thing. That's where it ends comparing it to "duty" games. Almost everything is destroyable. Somebody hiding in a building, put tank rounds into it and bring the whole thing down. And the best part in my mind, not everyone is a sniper that can hit you clear across the map then bring in drones and airstrikes and get 100 kills per game that way, again you know what i'm talking about, even in past battlefield series they did that. NOT IN THIS ONE. That's right, if you don't want to be a team player and work together, you will not do well and the entire team will suffer, just like in real wars, which I have had the unpleasant experience of. That's all I'm going to say, except multiplayer is worth it. So overall, get the game, you will appreciate the stories and the multiplayer. I could probably get rid of all my other games, have just this one, and be happy for quite a while. Again it feels like this was a memorial to those who served and were forgotten by most, so to DICE if you read this, from a former member of the United States Marine Corps, I thank you from the bottom of my heart at how well you honored the men and women who served.

    One of the best games Ive ever played!

    Battlefield one is by far one of the best overall games that I have had the pleasure of playing. Dice has had a track record of developing realistic, well thought out games when it comes to the first-person shooter spectrum. Being a veteran I have thoroughly enjoyed the games that dice has produced and look forward to future endeavors that they will conquer. I do believe that it will be a long time coming until even Dice can outdo itself when it comes to battlefield one. Smooth game play is a make it or break it when it comes to a first-person shooter, when it comes to smooth game play a dominating presence has and always will be call of duty. Comparing almost any first-person shooter game play to call of duty will doom a games credibility, or ability to receive a good review. In the case of Battlefield One this could not be more opposite. Battlefield One could be the single most competitive game in comparison to the call of duties that has come out to date. I can even go as far as saying that they have essentially wiped all recent call of duties off the map with the release of BF1(Battlefield One) Being a veteran I also appreciate realism. Not just realism when it comes to the act of shooting your enemy but when it comes to what has been deemed an “active map”. That being, when you shoot a wall with a rocket launcher the wall should explode. Battlefield one is a peak when it comes to Dice game production and active maps. Call of duty attempted to incorporate this in with some more evolving style maps but in the case of an active map battlefield continues to top all other first person shooting games. Story mode, the forgotten gem that all games carry with them giving the avid gamer a small challenger before he or she moves on to multiplayer. BF1 left allot of wiggle room with their campaign. It was short in nature and relatively uneventful, I beat it in the first three hours of game play. This does not take away from the game at all. The story is short but it engulfs you in what is one of the most brutal wars in human history. The opening level is a cinematic adventure that will surly warp your mind into a place that you do not want to escape from. Almost forcing you to continue on with the campaign out of sheer excitement for what they have in store for you next. While the campaign is not a make it or break it in current gaming, multiplayer is. A game can become a legend or become a 15 dollar game at game stop in no time at all, all because of multiplayer. Dice has once again showed how superior they are with what they did on BF1. As previously stated before everything that they bring into the game gives you a much different experience than you would with any other game. You could spend your time toggling through if you want to play team death match or capture the flag on other games like halo, or call of duty etc. Or you could get on BF1 and change your teams, tactics, map composition and completely change how you play the game. This without a doubt is my favorite thing when it comes to this game. I love the idea that its not just the objective changing but how you go about achieving that objective. There is no running around wildly and leaving with a good K/D ratio in BF1. BF1 has become and will forever live on as one of the best games developed in our time. As games change, opinions change, and the world changes I believe that BF1 will continue to be one of the greats. You can’t beat a game that has everything you would need as a gamer who enjoys first person shooters. It’s a one stop shop for a good time and an enjoyable gameplay experience. I highly recommend getting this game or at least trying it out before you continue with your “im a call of duty gamer” view.

    Best Battlefield game since Battlefield 3

    If you were one of many fans of the Battlefield franchise that was burned from the glitches of Battlefield 4 or the lackluster ideas of Battlefield Hardline, rest assure to know that Battlefield 1 is epic and awesome in every way possible. It's not only a drastic improvement over its predecessors, but it rewrites the basic formula with new ideas, a more realistic gameplay setting ripped right from the pages of a war museum, and new gameplay modes that really give gamers more bang for their buck. The new and completely overhauled single-player campaign pulls you in right from the start to you experience and empathize with each playable character as you watch hundreds and sometimes thousands of soldiers horrendously fade into the blood-soaked cloth of their country's pride. Each soldier has their own story to tell and each one dives into one of many significant battles of world War 1. In older games, the characters were just that, "characters." But this time around, the story told is very powerful and the weight of each character dying is felt through more than just vibration feedback from your controller. Furthermore, we all know that the meat of Battlefield 1 lies within its multiplayer mode, which surprisingly sports new gameplay modes that really captivates a true world war like no other online shooter has ever done before. There are two new modes that are a must-play: war pigeon and operations. War pigeon operates similar to capture the flag, but you find and capture a pigeon, send it off in order to call down a war strike on your enemies. It's fun, frantic, and a much welcome breath of fresh air for the franchise. In operations, you attack or defend objectives on massive maps (from jungles to deserts), with small twists in between the rounds to keep things interesting fresh and team oriented. Before each round, there is a narrator that gives a brief history lesson on why it was important that each opposing force needed to win the battle back in world war 1. The sound and setting each give lead way to an impressive gamemode that puts you in the heart of a real battle. A towering zeppelin, bludgeoning train, and a host of WW1 Era vehicle warfare, takes the atmosphere to a whole new level. The class system has been revamped and balanced as well as new weapons and perks encourage players to experiment to find their niche. In conclusion, this game is for long-time Battlefield fans as well as newcomers alike that want to experience first hand what a true world war was like minus the VR tech. This is an absolute must-buy. Trust and believe that you will experience multiple Battlefield moments.

    The single player is pretty decent this time around. Using the war stories format really worked out well with the opening being my favorite bit. I wish the whole campaign kept the that more serious and dark tone. Multiplayer can be a lot of fun but hardcore mode sucks this time around. (I used to almost always play on hardcore servers for BF4) Operations has become my favorite game mode. The battles are intense and get quite crazy sometimes. There are loads of codexes to unlock by doing certain things in the game. After I unlocked all the weapons I found myself having a lot of fun trying to complete the codex challenges and learning about the weapons, battles, and people in the war. Codexes in general were a really interesting addition to the game and I hope to see them return. There are a lot of balancing issues that need to be addressed in the game though. Most games I find myself in my team is either dominating or completely getting destroyed. Some players are so horrible at the game that I wish they could just be replaced by bots because then the team would actually have a chance at winning, it's ridiculous. Once in awhile there are those incredible games that are matched perfectly where both teams fight tooth and nail to win. Those are the games that make the purchase worth it. World War 1’s weapon selection is quite limited and DICE tries to get around this by giving you weapon variants instead of individual attachments. This feels more authentic to WW1 but you can really feel the lack of customization here compared to previous games. Loot boxes are in the game but in a pretty basic way. They are mostly just used to unlock a few melee weapons and weapon skins. For the most part I am happy with my purchase. There's a lot to unlock in the game although about half of the weapons are locked behind DLC. I have really enjoyed my time with Battlefield 1 and other than the occasional bugs, balancing issues, and limited weapon variety I think it's a game worth getting if you can get a good deal on it. 4 out of 5 stars.

    The folks behind the Battlefield franchise have always tried to be different with their First-Person Shooters. From using Frostbite for a more interactive environment to exploring fireteam co-op play and expanded online participation to bringing these sensibilities to urban law enforcement, DICE and EA have pushed the boundaries. This was my first experience with the very popular Battlefield franchise, so I was excited to experience the first-person gameplay from a historical perspective. So many games in the genre' have explored WWII and modern warfare (wink wink) and SciFi, so it was brilliant that DICE and Electronic Arts looked to The Great War for inspiration. Playing through the aptly titled Battlefield 1 brings to light the gruesome nature of the War to End All Wars by exploring the courageous exploits of actual participants and units, including the Harlem Hellfighters and Lawrence of Arabia with his band of Bedouin Rebels. The beautifully rendered visuals instantly draw the player into the action and explore the war fighting technology of the day. I prefer games to maintain the first-person vantage when operating vehicles, but Battlefield 1 pulls out to RPG-style third person when flying bi-planes or riding horseback. Oddly, operating the tank remains first-person. I have not played online; only the campaign. Gameplay is consistent with other FPS titles. You're confined by borders on the map with specific tasks to achieve to complete a mission. Within those borders, you can go practically anywhere and everywhere, in and out of doors and windows, off of roofs and towers, not just where the authors want you to. This allows you to strategize and engage enemies as you wish and the game knows the difference in hard and soft cover. Changes in lighting as you enter and exit buildings are realistic as your virtual eyes "adjust" to the change and use of binoculars play an important role in being stealthy. Controller button mapping is almost identical to other games, so the learning curve is practically flat. I can't say enough about how beautiful Battlefield 1 is for PS4. In-game graphics are just as impressive as cut scenes, though the CG animation of the cut scenes is cinema quality. Actor performances play a big part in the immersive enjoyment of any game and this cast is excellent. I play on a 55" Sony 4k XBR LED TV, but I don't have a PS4 Pro, so the TV upscales the native HD. The Pro console would only improve on the experience. I would insist that Battlefield 1 is a MUST for any fan of FPS games. Don't expect much action playing as the handsome man from the cover artwork. He doesn't feature much in the game.

    Battlefield has always attempted to give us something different. They have been playing catch up with COD for awhile. But it appears they have something to do it. It maybe a step back in time again, but it's realistic wartime game play and wonderful graphic enhancement makes this exciting. This time the tense war fighting and LARGE maps hit the mark. It's clear EA put great effort into bringing something exciting. Brilliance is finally starting shine a little for EA....finally. I know surprising. It's definitely not what we're are now accustomed to seeing in modern day gun play bUT that's what makes it awesome. It's still a lot of fun and offers tons of space to fight like actual war. However, the gun selections are a bit "off", the time it takes to rank up and the coin you need to buy upgrade in game, can deter some gamers. Nonetheless, you can't go wrong with this game. COD may find itself in the lead again with its new release on Nov. 4 but, Battlefield truly is a Battlefield and is worth every dollar spent to get it. Spoiler: Don't hold your breath over the weapon and perk unlocks you get with Premium Pass, not entirely enticing. Hope this helps! GAME ON!

    Following issues surrounding Battlefield 4, Star Wars Battlefront, and Battlefield Hardline (frostbite engine), I was a bit hesitant to give this game a try. Even after the beta, I was really not interested in this game. I then began watching my friends, streaming their gameplay, and realized that the map, for the beta, was the worst map in the game. I watched some of their other maps, and realized there may actually be potential. Once I decided to give the game a try, I was pleased to find it to be much better than I expected. The maps are larger, and have many paths (no bottlenecks), like I enjoyed in older titles. The attention to detail, and the visuals are both amazing, especially compared to other games out there. The environmental details give the game a very gritty feel, and really helps with the immersion. So why not 5 stars? Well, they have released a patch, to address many issues that they clearly knew existed, when they shipped the game. The problem is, there are several remaining gamplay bugs, which have become apparent since the game's release. For instance, when a player is revived, there are random times, where your gun will not work, until you swap weapons, then back again. When you quit, at the end of a map, it takes forever to get back to the main menu. The best guess is, you remain in the next map, until it completes (people have waited 15 minutes, before giving up). In the beta, some people were having problems using the flamethrower class. They fixed that in the final release, but the same issue now exists in the flamethrower tanks (If I sit in the back seats, no flames are discharged from the tank gun). Once these final issues are addressed, and several guns get balanced, this game should be a FPS to satisfy most gamers for quite a while.

    A review of the single player campaign

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    As someone who play games mainly for the single player, I'll be reviewing the single player portion of Battlefield 1. Battlefield games traditionally have lousy single player stories. For BF1, the story fares better. The single player is broken down into five separate stories that follows the war from five perspectives: a British tank driver, an American pilot, an Italian elite soldier, an Australian message runner, and a Bedouin rebel. Most stories have four missions though some have only two. The stories for each are so brief that you don't really have enough time to bond with each character. Nevertheless, you're given enough to care about their mission, see their personalities, and understand their motivation. Gameplay wise, the story missions are diverse with the range of tactics you use. While most missions are really linear, some of them take a more sandbox approach with how you approach your objective. What's great about the single player is that it helps prepare you for the multiplayer game if you're interested in that aspect. The sound design and graphics are wonderful just to note. Performance wise, framerate seems to be stable at 60 fps most of the time. If you're playing on the Pro, the resolution will constantly be 1080p as oppose to the dynamic resolution at 900p. Overall, it took me 8-10 hours to finish the campaign since I also finished all the codex (challenges) and collected all the field manuals. If you can find the game on sale, I would recommend it for the single player content though the game is a no brainer if you're into multiplayer.

    Great Addition to the Battlefield Series

    Battlefield One throws you back in time to the First World War, playing as several of the nations involved. The setting of the game feels like some of the previous iterations of WWII games (such as Medal of Honor), but the graphics are detailed and appealing. These beautiful buildings and settings can be blown up, of course, allowing for destructive environments that open up the playing field. The single player is broken up into several different fronts with several 'mini-missions' making up each of the chapters of the campaign. I played through on the hardest difficulty and was able to complete it in a reasonable amount of time without replaying for the collectibles/challenges on each mission. It's an enjoyable story, albeit feels a bit short. The multiplayer is where the game really shines (as most in the Battlefield series). You can play up to 32 vs. 32 in huge, epic battles in the environments you played through in the campaign. Dreadnaughts are provided to the losing team to try and balance the game out to make it more even in the waning moments. These giant vehicles (zeppelin, battle cruiser, armored train) allow players to pilot them and support the team in taking victory points. I have played the multiplayer for many hours and still am not bored of it. There are new places to snipe from, more environments to blow up,and different guns to unlock for each class as you play through. My one request is.. if you play as a medic, please dear god revive and heal your team.

    When reading reviews, I expected to see and play a game that just blew COD out of the water. That is not what I found. Do not get me wrong, this is a great game, but I do not believe it to be leaps and bounds above COD. I didn't feel the playing graphics were as good as COD, but the in-game "movies" were very crisp and clear. The story itself was fantastic and the settings were great as well. The feel is similar but also a little different because the buttons had different functions. The maps are huge and the ability to use things such as tanks and planes were pretty cool during the online multiplayer. Where I grew impatient with the game was I didn't feel the fighting mechanics were as crisp, especially the aiming and tracking while aiming. The other area of irritation came with the actual length of online game play. I played in a match that too 57 minutes to finish and that is not an exaggeration...it displayed at the end of the match. It was because of the players dropping in and out of the matches. COD has a 10 minute time limit I believe or first one to 75. Battlefield was first to 100 I believe. All in all its a very solid game especially for someone that has time to set and wait because it takes a little longer to load a lot of it's matches as well. The game play is easy to pick up and the story is great. The graphic as good but nothing special. The weapons are good and there is a good variety. I enjoyed it but it didn't make me forget about COD like others claim.

    I held off on writing a review for BF1, wanting instead to get a long term feel for the game. It's been roughly a month now and I feel the time is right. Visually, BF1 is stunning. The graphics and environment are important factors to the all-consuming war that is happening around you. Whether you're on campaign mode, traveling through a rain of gunfire or on multiplayer, traversing the fog of war with explosions all around, you'll find yourself immersed into the great war. The campaign is not a singular campaign like BF4, but rather 6 mini-campaign stories that, together, tell different sides of the war. Nice approach and some of the stories work really well (the Australian campaign is perhaps my favorite). It acts more like a tutorial for how to play, getting you prepared for multiplayer. Multiplayer has multiple changes - some good, some bad. Overall, it is a great experience and offers much of the great gameplay that is to be expected of the franchise. Leveling up classes is straight forward but the weapons system is a bit more arduous than it needs to be. Also, the randomized battlepacks system is perhaps the worst system out of any FPS, to be honest. I have not encountered any networking issues and games are relatively easy to find and join. If you are a FPS fan and have enjoyed previous Battlefield entries, you'll enjoy BF1.

    First off, if your heavy on beautiful graphics like me, this is a game to see! Aside from that, the Battlefield has been a great series, overall. I started with Bad Company on PS3, which I still have, and dug it so much, I continued on picking up Battlefield games. However, I will say I was a bit apprehensive about getting ANOTHER World War based military shooter, which can be very boring, but after the visuals piqued my interest then the beta, I was glad I decided to pick this up. Gameplay is best yet, to me, and the single player campaign is very well done. I was sucked in to the different stories being told. I almost want to say it's in a stratosphere of it's own but I'm still mulling that over in my head. Believe me, it's up there. I haven't dug too much into the multiplayer since the beta (soo many games to play PLUS I have the PSVR that I LOVE) and admittedly, I'm not a big multiplayer person but the single player campaign has me very hyped to dive right into multiplayer on a daily basis. Not to mention, a few people have mentioned how they are hooked on the multiplayer for this game. That said, if your FPS fan, I believe you WILL NOT go wrong with this game.

    Lacks progression incentives

    Depending on how you are with games, you can either like or hate BF1. If you want to log on, play, then log off without any desire or need to progress further, this game is for you. If you want progression to gain extra abilities or weapon attachments, you'll be done after the first day playing. Unfortunately while this game can be fun, it lacks what is needed to keep a game long lasting after the first few hours or days of playing. It lacks progression. It lacks any incentive to push for that extra hour of playing to get that piece of gear you fought hard for. This is a step backwards from its predecessor because of that. The only progression that exists is to do something specific like getting kills with a pistol to gain some additional xp or a weapon skin. But that is it. Even then, you have to select what you want to go for. On top of that, it's a step by step process in order to get that additional xp or weapon skin. So what it already lacks for that feel of accomplishment, it makes it even more difficult because you have to perform specific tasks in a specific order. It is just not my cup of tea. And likely not appealing to many other hardcore gamers that want that feeling of accomplishment when pressing the power button to end the evening.

    I bought this game to play with my friends, but have been burnt out on shooters lately. I really liked Call of Duty until they added all the movement changes. It was refreshing to switch over to this game instead. The reasons i gave BF1 the stars are the problems i have with the game, which keep it from being really amazing. First, the maps are in a static rotation. The order never changes, and unless you stay in a lobby, you'll find yourself playing the same few maps repeatedly. Secondly, the load times are long. I'm usually not one to complain, but even quitting out of a lobby seems to literally take a minute or two. It feels like an eternity. Even the customize soldier transition loading time seems too long. There are things i like as well. I played a bit of the campaign, and it was a very immersive story. I got the game for multiplayer though. The bullet drop and zeroing the sniper scope are great touches. I have a lot of fun shooting out of vehicles, and sometimes just running around exploring the big maps. The size and scope of the maps and battles are amazing. Overall, there are improvements which could be made. This is still a good game though.

    BF1's campaign surprised me right off the bat with the way the introduction was able to present the gravity of war. Obviously a game will never come close to representing the true experience, but the hopelessness conveyed was a far cry from the near invincibility that many shooters employ. The single player experience is split into five stories that vary in character, location, and timeline. I enjoyed all of them quite a bit, and they presented a nice variety. Vehicles play prominent roles in two missions, and stealth play was necessary, or at least an option, for at least part of all the missions. Even though each mission is an entirely new story with new characters, they manage to make you identify and feel for these characters almost immediately. Admittedly I hadn't read much about the game before release so perhaps my expectations were lower than they should have been, but BF1 was a great experience and if I had more time I would jump into the multiplayer as well. I should also note that the game is beautiful.

    I was really hoping for a WW2 game again, I feel like that era was overdone for awhile but has been in a drought since then. BF1944 would have been right up my alley but WW1 it was to be. Operations mode has to be the stand out here, best BF game mode to date. WW1 setting is neat and also awkward. For WW1 I would have preferred to have seen the balance of the guns to be more geared towards what was more realistic. This game has machine guns and subguns a plenty. Your team can have as many as they feel like and if you want a bolt action rifle, standard for the time, with just iron sites, well that makes you part of the "scout" class. I understand its a game so they get some leeway there, but I still wish that every "class" could use a bolt action rifle as the standard issue. I also think it would have been quite unique had they given the medic class only a pistol. I think that would focus medics on their job instead of on the combat. Overall I still find this game to be fantastic set aside from the unreal ww1 setting. I think of it more of an altered history version. Lot's of fun with a squad of friends.

    A Different Story

    This has to be one of the most diverse games in the battlefield series which I enjoy all of them very much. You will be part of a tank crew with different objectives in and outside of the tank. Then you'll be whisked off to other locales in the world such as Italy, the Sahara desert and several other locations depending on which part of the story you wish to play. You get to ride a horse, fly a bi-plane and battle the enemy on the ground. I have not played the multiplayer option yet but I understand it to be excellent in all respects. The single-player "campaign" is more like segments of the whole story that you can choose from. Your character will change frequently during the stories which gives the player different insights to WW1 and how it affected people from all walks of life. Some complained that the campaign was short but it is certainly long enough if you don't try to complete the game in record time and take in the beauty of the locations and find the well-hidden collectibles. One of the best games out there at this time.

    Best Shooter I've Played Years

    The title says it all. I've played call of duty every year from the original (maybe the best single player ever), and my shooter history goes all the way back to wolfenstein in the early 90s. This rounds up the better aspects of most shooters available. The single player has a fresh take on story: You don't play a campaign to determine the outcome of the war, but rather a set of stories from the point of view of various soldiers fighting in different ways. Excellent. Multiplayer: You have all the standard modes and standard-seeming classes, but there is a lot of depth here. The class system is deep, balanced, and adds a bunch of strategy. You want to run around and shoot people in the face go for assault, you want to help the team and be the key to winning go for medic. Don't forget you get some of the best sniper play in gaming, and you can rock some awesome power in the support class. And let's not forget the game modes. Operations is the most war-like shooting I've ever played. Very cool... Best shooter in years

    Game was what was expected and is a great game ! But the customer service was terrible! I hope you "BEST BUY" actually read these reviews!! I was not at all happy by the fact that I had to go to your store four times before they gave me a definitive answer! This game was bought in a bundle and they first told me they would price match, but then they told me that they would not price match Amazon which I found out later from another associate was not true!! Then that they would price match their own in-store price after the prices dropped but not without the receipt!! It is a 25 mile round-trip to where Best Buy is here were I live, so now on my fourth trip into Best Buy another associate tells me that they will not price match a bundle? Why did they not tell me this in the beginning??!! before I had wasted my time money and gas, I have a Best Buy rewards account!!! NOT A HAPPY CUSTOMER!!! I would like a response to this review!!!!

    It's Battlefield with a World War 1 skin slapped on it. Multiplayer is a complete joke with certain gametypes being heavily unbalanced, and always favors the attacking team. The main being largest of the Attack/Defend gametypes where if you get stuck on the defending team 9/10, you are going to lose, as even if you successfully defend a sector, the attacking team gets another two tries each getting backed up with a extremely powerful vehicle, like a Battleship, or a heavily armored train, etc just depends on the map. I don't understand the praise this game gets, it's just Battlefield again with a different look. The guns aren't even interesting, and there is not very many to choose from, and you have to play an extreme amount of multiplayer to unlock any new ones to play around with. Also, load times are abysmal, it can take over a minute or two just to load into a multiplayer game. That's awful.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
