    Incredible Single Player, Intense Multiplayer

    This game is a good shooter for multiple reasons. One reason is that it is pretty universal in terms of guns for the support, recon, medic, and assault. While it is not quite realistic to the time period based on the guns you use, it is not a ww1 simulator, its battlefield. It brought new game modes such as: Operations where you can play as defense which is defending the flags against the attackers who are trying to capture them. War Pigeons is where you get a pigeon, write a note (sort of like capturing a flag) and setting it free to gain a point out of three. And Fog of War which is Hardcore Team death match and normal team death match. The vehicles are improved, tour bullets can do damage to the planes (not much) and the dogfights seem better and more balanced. They added motorcycles with the seat on the side like in the movies. The artillary truck which has an AA gun on top of it and a Vickers Mk1 (the normal mounted machine gun in that game) and a new thing called Behemoths. If the enemy team is loosing in operations they will receive a behemoth on most maps you will get an Airship which is a blimp outfitted with powerful explosive round machine guns, and the pilot can drop bombs on top of it there are mounted machine guns (vickers mk1). On other maps where there is water you will receive a Dreadnought, this is a Cruiser with heavy hitting artillary and AA guns. The last behemoth is an Armourd train. This has the same guns as the Dreadnought but with added machine guns (for infantry). This is a fun game in all, but it is for the person who likes fast paced battlefield games, such as bf4 and bf3. So if you liked those games and hardline I would suggest getting this one.

    The Battlefield before 1942 Re-imagined

    I admit I can be a little biased towards EA's Battlefield series as I've played and loved every single game under their umbrella. BUT! This installment is DICE's way of showing the fans that they listen to them and that they don't follow blindly to trends. Single player is majestic! It's very reminiscent of Call of Duty 3's story mode. Which is not a bad thing! The cutscenes are so realistic you could forget that you're playing a video game and instead watching a real action movie. The scenes are just that real! I can't say the story is particularly deep as I didn't feel too connected to the characters but I felt a sense of empathy. Multiplayer is where the meat of this game resides, though. It's is eerily reminiscent of EA's StarWars: Battlefront (2015) mechanics and handling though just vaguely. If you enjoyed the large scale warfare maps of Battlefield 4, then this has equally massive maps plus trenches! The new operations mode is a great new revisioned "rush" mode with an added bohemoth for defensive forces to divert their attention to. The usual formula for an online battlefield game is still here, alive and kicking! For good reason too; it just works! Their new model for battle packs however isn't as rewarding as it was in the last installment '4' and mostly contains skins for vehicle and weapon customization. Aside from this small rewards system aspect, it's still a great game taken back in time.

    Huge Disappointment

    Have been looking forward to this for some time. The in game quality of the graphics are fantastic. The game play is mediocre at best however and the campaign is a disappointing mishmash of unrelated missions with characters and events that have no apparent connection. The story unfolds out of time sequence and does nothing to tell a comprehensive story about WWI. In fact, the campaign is so poor compared to the Call of Duty or even Medal of Honor franchises that I hesitate to even call it a campaign. Just a few unrelated "chapters" of an unfinished book. As far as the actual game play, why has DICE forced us to utilize the lame "Halo" style of you can only carry two weapons and then never find more ammunition for those weapons anywhere. You constantly have to find and pick up some other, random weapon that is usually ill suited to what your mission is and what you need. People are throwing heaps of praise on this game, probably because the visuals are so cool. But the weapon mechanics are kind of shoddy, the control scheme clunky compared to other FPS's and the campaign is very sub-par. This is another example in my opinion of lazy design work where the emphasis is going into a massive online multiplayer environment and little effort on the main story. When the entire game campaign takes about 5 hours to play through on normal difficulty, the game is lacking. Save your money on this one. It's pretty but shallow waters with a frustrating control scheme and poor weapon mechanics. CoD Next comes out in early November.

    I absolutely loved this game. I think it handled the difficult task of presenting the great war in a fantastic manner. Although some of the technology at the time is embellished a bit for better playability, most weapons and armor are pretty spot on. The graphics engine is mind blowingly good. Just watching some of the battle scenes and the huge amount of highly detailed lush background landscape scenery is awe inspiring. It really felt like being right there. One of my favorite scenes is an aerial battle high in the clouds above London with the sun setting in the distance. I actually paused the game several times just to look and marvel at the graphics. The controls are spot-on and I really have no complaints at all about the game other than that the campaign, while absolutely fantastic, is rather short. It can be completed on normal difficulty within a few hours. Anyone buying this solely for the campaign should be aware of that. The true replay value is in the multiplayer. Huge maps and teams along with gameplay that actually encourages strategy instead of mere fast-twitch, running around, one shot speedfests is what makes this the best multiplayer among the recent releases. Multiplayer is actually fun regardless of skill level. Good graphics, good controls, good gameplay, good multiplayer = one very good game.

    Been playing first person shooters for a long time and sadly, have been burnt out on them the last few years. Everything is a rehash with weak story and better graphics. BF1 is in a league of its own. It brought an amazing MP graphics push, cool unexplored war era, fair balanced game play, team work, and a sense of purpose while youre playing. You dont just shoot, you need to push the line, protect, not die, achieve goals, etc... Brings more depth to the game. I highly recommend, put some good hours into the game and felt like it was a good value. Some negatives are: You are bad at the start. It takes a bit to learn things in the game, weapons, flying, feel, etc.. Took a good week or two to learn, then be acceptable in matches. Some long load times. Some games you try so hard but your team doesnt care or is so bad. No matter what, you lose and it can be frustrating. Have to put in hours or buy packs. The pay to win isnt that bad, but the hours needed to gain everything is a lot. To be top tier, its gonna be $$ or a lot of hours. Also wished they had just 2-3 more maps per size.

    Ok so maybe its because i'm pushing 30 years old next year...but this Battlefield has to be one of my favorite all time games. The campaign (although short) is amazing. The way they take you through the war in different views and characters was great....my only wish is that it was longer! I found this game to be way different than any other shooter and have been waiting for another "oldschool" war game since the 2nd call of duty that captured WWII....So this for me was fantastic....i cant comment too much on the multiplayer as i've only played a couple times and was attack/defend situations. Gameplay is great, if you want a challenge and for the campaign to take longer use the Hard difficulty...Normal is pretty easy (sometimes i'm like where are the rest of the guys).....maybe at some point they can tag on some extra missions as a pack? that would be awesome.... Is it worth $60? im not sure...i have the gamers club and then i had $10 in reward points so i only spent $40 on the game....the $40 was worth it and i'd probably spend $60 still....but anyways yeah, one of the best games i've played as far as uniqueness and coolness....go grab it..

    In an era of what I call "Future shooters" there are very few First Person Shooter games based on historical wars, or even a faux history. As a gamer, I'm somewhat tired of the jet packs, lazer cannons, pulse gernades, plasma pistols, time jumps, space-warp, etc... The trope of the futuristic gameplay has been worn out. I quit the Call of Duty games because of them joining the ranks of Halo, TitanFall, Destiny, etc... I don't want another game like that. So when Battlefield 1 was announced, I was legitimately excited for the opportunity to play a game with historical vistas instead of galactic vistas. This game does a great job at being fun, telling great stories, and giving an honest look at the difficulties of the first World War. The controls in this game are very good and the graphics are exemplary! Simply one of the most beautiful console games to date. This game takes you through European and Arabian battles on Ground, Air, and some sea battle through telling of 5 different storylines with each their own set of missions and locals. If you're looking for a change of pace, then this is the game for you.

    ...And Now for Something Completely Different!

    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.

    Battlefield 1 is a complete reversal in the trend for futuristic first-person shooters. The single-player campaign is more like a series of short stories and events rather than continuing the battles as one overall set of objectives. You get to play as different soldiers as the campaign progresses where you get to know them as individuals. The battles range from trench warfare, tank battles, aerial dogfights, riding horseback in the desert and a few other fighting styles and weaponry unique to WW1. The graphics on the XBOX ONE are excellent and comparable to the PS4 which I have played but I actually prefer the XBOX because it seems easier to see the battlefields which can be chaotic. You will see firsthand the definition of "the fog of war" in this game! I cannot comment on the multiplayer since I have not yet tried it. This game is an excellent addition to the Battlefield series.

    Overall, if you liked Battlefield 4 you'll like BF1. But while it does some things better, some things aren't improved. The maps feel better designed, graphics are definitely improved, weather effects are more dramatic, and the sound design is incredible. The new Operations mode (like the old Rush mode but moving from one sector to the next) gives a sense of progression and importance to each battle. On the downside, there is much less variety of weapons and weapon attachments versus BF4. There is less variety in vehicles and anti-vehicular weapons. This may be in keeping with the difference in time periods, but it means less customization options and less incentive to progress. Hopefully as the DLC is released the greater variety of maps will be accompanied by more weapons and vehicles. As it is now, it's still a great game and I've had a ton of fun with it.

    When you first realize that this is a World War 1 based game, your initial thoughts may be trench war is not really fun or uninteresting. However you will be happy to be proven wrong. This is a excellent representation of the chaotic nature or WWI and Dice does a great job at giving you a fairly accurate idea in it's short but very well told single player stories of different fronts of the war. Multiplayer as always with the Battlefield franchise is an extremely fun experience that keeps on getting better with each match. You have a massive 64 player matches that really give you a great feeling of immersion into the game with all the explosions and bullets flying by I would strongly recommend a surround sound system or headphones although not required to give you the best experience. Strongly recommend getting this game you will not regret it.

    When BF1 was announced last year I was ecstatic that there was a company willing to go back to this time era. The sound quality of the game is really immersive (I highly recommend playing with headphones for the best experience) and the graphics are one of the best i've seen this console generation. Since this is a Battlefield game, the maps are huge and being able to fly the plane is fun! There isn't one main story mode, instead there what they call "war stories." This puts the player in the shoes of different soldiers in WWI and their experiences such as one soldier whose job was to drive a tank (which reminded me of the movie Fury), another story takes the player into the shoes of a pilot during WWI. I don't want to spoil it anymore so I will leave it at that, but I highly recommend picking this up!

    I've been a big fan of the Battlefield series and have had everything from BF 1948, BF2, BF3, and BF4 and while BF1 seems to be much less buggy than BF4 was initially it's just not as fun to me. I do really like the historical connections the game uses and think for many players it will be an opportunity to learn a few new things. I think the graphics are great and game play is smooth but the games take longer to load as a result. The weapons, planes, vehicles and tanks are all well done but there is a learning curve as you have to adjust to the slower moving associated with the technology available during this time period. It does seem I spend a lot of time respawning because I seem to spend more time getting shot but overall, not a bad game but to me not as good or fun as Battlefield 4 was after a few updates.

    Campaign is fine, but anyone that knows the Battlefield franchise knows that the multiplayer is the crux of the game, and what it is truly judged on. The change of scenery, time period, and weapon mechanics is a welcome change from BF4's, and BF3's modern styles. I mean the actual damage multiplier, spread, range, and overall mechanics of the weapons is completely new. Sorry COD (call of duty) fan boys! You won't be able to jump in this one and just run around and kill everyone who happens not to be looking; the maps are large, the guns require more skill, and killing a player takes more than a burst from 3 meters out with you MRXZRE-9000 killing machine. So for the more mature FPS fan, that requires some kind of strategy, even without speaking, this is your game. Did I say the graphics are awesome?

    This game is a whole new world. Never have I wanted to engage on a more radical exodus to smite the world of tyranny and oppression than after playing one round of operations in battlefield 1. I sometimes get lost in what is real and what is battlefield one for Xbox 1. Bombarded with complex soliloquy by video game characters battling conflict, only reinforces the the level of depth this game carries. I lost 253 fellow comrades in out last push for objective Butter... a moment I will never forget. Barring that horrific event, I have been amazed at my ability to fly biplanes, armored tanks, and weaponized trains with little to no training or experience. Truly a game worth going to your local Best Buy and purchasing Battle Field 1 for the Xbox 1.... also available via bestbuy online.

    I have always loved Battlefield games, so this was an obvious purchase for me. That being said, EA and DICE are known for their releases being plagued with server issues. I'm pleased to say that I haven't encountered any issues at all. The gameplay and modes are in typical Battlefield fashion, with the addition of the Operations game mode. This things is a beast, and it is the most hectic and immersive game experience i've ever played. Keeping in mind that I only play the 64 player option (there is a 40 player option as well), it sucks you in and makes you feel like you're really in the middle of a hectic and terribly violent battle. I'm not big on single player, but have run one of the missions, and can say that it was a lot of fun. The graphics are amazing. Buy this game!

    Taking on the first world war seemed like an impossible task to make into a modern video game, let alone to do it with positive results. Battlefield 1 proves that taking a look at an overlooked piece of our history (in video games) can be successfully pulled off! Battlefield pacing is slower than COD (a plus in my book) which removes alot of the twitch battles over in 2 seconds you normally see with an actual emphasis on squad work to win battles. Excellent vehicle physics and an easy learning curve in using them. Single player is a poignant look at stories told from the perspectives of individuals in different areas of the world that helps bring home that wars are fought by individuals, not just countries. Buy this game and you will enjoy the entire experience!

    I have been a fan of the Battlefield games for some time, particularly the Bad Company set, but I was busy playing other games when I bought this for my son and didn't plan on getting a copy for myself. Until I saw him playing the campaign (s). FIVE separate stories, each with a different spin and challenges. Non of them are terribly long, but they are varied. So I bought my own copy and played through the campaign in a single (long) evening. Then I went to the online multiplayer. Wow. Once I discovered the right class for my playing style, I was hooked. Good advancement, I love the new attack/defend online structure (versus the old capture the flag format). I recommend this to any fan of solid shooters!

    The decision to stray away from the current trend of futuristic shooters and go back to WW1 is Battlefield 1's strongest point paired with others. One of the biggest things associated with WW1 is trench warfare and B1 nails it but doesn't solely rely on it. the gunplay is great, the classes are classic Battlefield but with WW1 era equipment, and the vehicles are all there with the addition of the horse. The horse essentially lets you become a fast moving melee machine but doesn't feel too overpowered. The maps, both big and small ones, offer plenty of variety in terms of buildings, bunkers, verticality, and environment. Overall this is a great return to the style that helped define pre-modern war style FPS.

    Battlefield has always been the better looking shooter, it just looks more realistic. This year's game they tweaked the controls and it feels good, and similar to COD, to me anyways. Now I just finished playing Battlefront, and when I played this it felt like they took Battlefront and just added this skin over it and called it Battlefield, that's my opinion. I hate how sometimes the game will start you off at one end of the map instead of in the middle, takes forever when all the fighting is on the other side. And to me it just seems chaotic, like you don't see your enemy till it's to late or at all. For me that's not fun, it's annoying. Maybe it's me, but I'm not that much of a shooter.
