    YMMV, but overall fun

    Regarding the game itself, your mileage may vary. This is not for everyone. There are those players who prefer fast-paced action, running all over the map, shooting down people (or getting shot), respawning, and then going thru the same cycle again. If you are that type of player, you would not like this and would maybe prefer Call of Duty Black Ops 4 multiplayer. The maps there are small and designed for death matches and fast kills. In Battlefield V, this is more team-based and objective driven. The maps can sometimes be so big that you find yourself running from one objective to another without encountering an enemy and wishing you got a vehicle instead. It has its pros and cons. If you're the type who likes to think, strategize, find the right hiding and camping places, and even camp sniping, then this game can be for you. The large maps have its cons though, sometimes you find yourself running around and just getting one-shot killed by a sniper from very far away. It's definitely a lot easier and 'fun" to play in PC than in console. I bought this too for xBox One X, but never even got to play past the 3rd mission. I suck big time with using console controllers, I just can't aim fast enough with my thumb. So there, if you like World War 2 settings with older weapons, then you may just like this. I for one do. I alternate playing between COD4 and BF5, and the change of scenery and gameplay can be refreshing from time to time.

    Call of Battlefield

    I've been a Battlefield franchise player since the first game in the series (BF1942) and owned every game except 2142. The graphics in this game are stunning however I feel like I'm playing Call of Duty rather than Battlefield. In addition the game isn't complete yet but I knew that when I purchased it. Picked this up on sale for 40% off on the PC Standard version 6 days after the official release. Note the only difference between Standard and Deluxe aside from the $20 price increase is cosmetic items like skins for weapons and vehicles. Until more DLC is released this game is a slow starter. It had the potential to be great but EA got greedy and messed up their launch. Don't spend more than $30 for it.

    Overall enjoyable game

    I've been playing BF since BattleField 2, so Ive played pretty much all of them. Gameplay is similar to Battlefield 1, and I really enjoyed that game. This game focuses more on war stories and seeing war from different prespectives. A major difference is that anybody can revive now, not just the medic class. Its a nice feature sometimes but most of the time it really isn't because any other class will want to revive when they shouldn't be since it takes longer and instead should be covering fire. The spotting system is different as well. There is no option to spot/tag someone like the previous games. The scout class has an option to spot someone in the more traditional way with certain equipment. Overall, the graphics and gameplay is great

    Not a finished game

    This is an early access title masquerading as a full release; Battlefield games tend to have rocky starts, but this game feels like it was rushed out the door half a year before it was finished. The game itself is pretty fun, but it lacks many of the modes and features that were advertised before release, balance feels awkward overall, and many of the changes from BF1 feel like steps backwards. Hopefully this game will be more polished in about half a year or so once more of the content patches have released, but as it stands I can't really recommend this game yet, even at the low $40 I payed for it.

    A Frustrating Entry

    Battlefield V is a frustrating game. The menus are a pain to navigate and the game seems to go out of its way to obscure useful UI elements or make you go through unnecessary menu steps to access important information or change loadouts. The progression system is entirely bland and the map and mode design seems to have learned no lessons from any of the previous entries in the franchise. The shooting is competent and the movement is interesting, as are the additions of building and fortifications, but ultimately is not enough to make the game particularly enjoyable when the fundamentals of the maps and decisions regarding visual design and some guns remain at odds.

    Battlefield V - Good game, short SP

    So just to be upfront, I DO NOT play multiplayer games and/or multiplayer modes of first-person shooters. (And I don’t play third-person shooters at all.) Battlefield V does have a single-player (SP) mode and it’s fun. The graphics are excellent (GTX1070, 1920x1080, Ultra settings) and the configurable levels (easy through very hard) make the game challenging. But the SP levels are too short, and that’s a shame. I’d love to upgrade to an RTX2080 to see live ray-tracing in action, but until more games support ray-tracing and DLSS - and the RTX cards come down to more affordable prices, I’ll stick with playing Battlefield V as-is. Which is still excellent.

    Immersive Warfare Experience

    Not for the faint of heart, this latest edition of battlefield will have you hitting the unforgiving landscape of WW2 as you plow your way with vehicles, artillery, neck and neck dogfights, and find yourself at odds with a never ending gauntlet of enemies. The studio has taken great care to make the experience another AAA title for the books as you hear bullets whizzing by and mortar shots landing from afar and destroying the base you and your squad are desperately trying to defend. If you loved BF1 and ready to throw yourself back at death's alley then grab it while it's still on sale for the holidays!

    The shooting is nice and I like how they changed the classes. They have daily assignment available to earn money to buy cosmetics for there is no pay to win items in the game. The campaign is also well made but there is a chapter missing that will be available 12/5/18. It is also missing the battle royale mode but it will come later down the line. I am giving the game four stars because there is no season pass so all the players will be able to play the same maps, which is the step in the right direction. I paid only $25 because of bb gcu and reward certificates but I think $30-$40 is an okay price to get it.

    Great cinematics horrible gameplay and coding

    The cinematics are amazing. Love it. RTX was horrible but they are improving it with Nvidia's help. The game itself is trash. Billed as historically accurate and yet the WW setting and no US or Russian troops and female fighters where there weren't any. So Yeah Some of the most feared snipers were Russian Females yet they were left out and others added that didn't exist. Plus the head of the game is a jerk. He said "don't buy it" So great cinematics and graphics. Horrible hit-markers and buggy as all and political agenda shoved down your throat. I'd love a refund.

    Short and to the point. Is the game worth it? That depends on what you're looking to get out of it. My first Battlefield was 2142 and they have never released anything like it since. I keep picking these up, hoping to see something that takes me back there. This game is good if you look at what most studios are putting out now. I prefer Battlefield over COD because of the aspect of vehicles etc that aren't really represented in COD. With that being said though the tanks in this game basically camp and ruin the whole game for you so be warned.

    It's Battlefield

    What is there to say about this game? This game is Battlefield thru and thru. The formula is largely the same as previous generations but it's more refined and action packed. The game's defining modes of 64 player servers certainly shine on the maps they've created. Plane and tank warfare are pleasant but sometimes feel shoehorned in since all the maps are smaller than BF4 and BF1. This game would be worthy of 5 stars had they released all the promised content at launch. Tides of War and the battle royale mode are still missing (as of the date of this review).

    I've always been a fan of ww2 games, and when I found out bf was going back to ww2, I was pretty stoked about it since BF1 was pretty good. I've been playing this game none stop and so far I love it. Battlefield games has always been my go to fps over call of duty. My only issue with BFV is that it does kind of feel incomplete. I was hoping you could add like attachments other than a scope to your weapon but they are all just for cosmetics which I don't really care about. Overall the gameplay is fun and that's all that really matters.

    EA Doesn't Listen to their Community

    Honestly my first weeks of the game I absolutely loved it. The gunplay which was all I focused on was excellent, snappy, and felt great. They have since increased the time to kill in the game, rendering the assault and medic classes near useless for offensive engagements. This was despite the praise for the original game settings. Guess we'll have to wait and see if they change it back, but in this current state I would not recommend this title.

    Phenomenal looking game on PC. The campaign is as light as ever and no one should take it seriously. It provides a little respite from the multiplayer mayhem when you're looking for it. A recent patch has added some barebones coop against AI which basically rehashes some multiplayer maps into smaller ones. The next large update will add a battle royale mode, which was teased before the games release. Overall, good support and no pay-to-win crate system. Give it a shot!

    I like the game. Even though not a whole lot of difference from the previous one but the graphics are great as usual. The map is big but still manageable and not boring like running without seeing anyone. Just have to be patient with future updates cuz I know they will find more bugs just like any other games. The battle royale will be interesting though. I just hope they will find a way to have a solo mode in their battle royale. Hard to get used to it if you are a COD player but you will be fine.

    The UI/game play are reminiscent of BF4, but the eye candy is just so, so good. The new features, like being able to tow weapons with other vehicles, being able to heal other squad members (even if you're not medic class), etc. are fantastic. Load times on multiplayer games and that interface in general are a downgrade, and not being able to leave ammo and medic crates like you do in BF1 are also a detraction to the game, but overall, glad I got this!

    I cannot tell you how much fun this game has been. I have always been a fan of battlefield series and having this one in WW2 settings has made it the best one yet in my opinion. I have friends who were skeptical about it but if your on the fence try the EA Access for a month to see if it's worth it to you. Most of my friends tried it for a few weeks canceled their Access and just purchased the game.

    Ordering through Bestbuy was quick and easy. But the BF5 gameplay is horrible. Bf1 is much better. Dice and EA are just looking for easy money, no game optimization, frequent server disconnects and what not. They gave us half the game which we have to pay full price. Over the course of 1 year, they will be optimizing the game. and next year they will release a new game.

    This game can be fun when played with a group of friends, but playing on your own can be extremely hit and miss depending on the squad you end up on. You will need a squad because as soon as you come across a team that plays well together, you'll see what you've been missing. New maps aren't bad, overall balancing not too bad either, new weekly achievements are nice to work towards too.

    Great When DICE Doesn't Break the Game

    Battlefield V is fun and a great experience when the game just plays itself out. Recently DICE reverted the changes made to the after an immensely backlash from the community. This brought the game back to a fun state, but the damage might have been done from the early PR of the game to now. Overall, at the current time of this review the game is an alright purchase on sale.
