BATTLEFIELD V REVIEW
So it's finally here!
The much anticipated game BATTLEFIELD V was supposed to be released in the month of October. However, due to what I can imagine is some issue with the game and release, DICE and EA decided to release a month later. November soon came around and the release for the deluxe edition was 15.11.18. The standard edition was released 20.11.18. I'm sure the servers will be full to bursting with enthusiastic players hoping to fall in love with the new game of their favourite franchise!
Their have been plenty of reviews over the last few days regarding BFV. Some were good, a few were quite negative. Personally my view is that this game is in a different direction compared to Battlefield 1 and in fact more similar to Battlefield 4 than anything else, it's a faster paced game and not only that, one of the most historically accurate games regarding world war 2 as the war stories are well written. I asked a few of my squad mates in the Vikings squad of the Xbox One division and the majority of responses were positive and quite enthusiastic in terms of the game play. The main point was that squad cohesion and overall teamwork is the absolute key to success! The final change that seemed to be well received was the weapons and character customisation!
I asked IamJokerI, the executive officer of 2nd battalion, Battlefield division his thoughts on the game, he said:
"As someone who has played every Battlefield title at or shortly after release since BF2. For me BFV in its current form lies somewhere between absolutely brilliant and ridiculously broken. The major changes to gun mechanics and noticeable changes to the core mechanics, have in my opinion made the game better than it has ever in many respects. But as with all Battlefield titles since the beginning of time itself, it comes complete with a plethora of potentially game breaking bugs (from bells hanging in the air after the destruction of a church, to you being stuck at spawn unable to move or even being revived under a seemingly indestructible table and therefore trapped)".
"All in all. BFV is an extremely fun game regardless of bugs with a lot of new mechanics to adapt to and learn. It feels somewhat half baked in terms of content, but this was entirely expected given their "Roadmap" of future releases. It does however have solid foundations in place to be an amazing Battlefield title for years to come. That is assuming patches and future releases don't break more than they fix in typical battlefield fashion".
alot of people have said similar things to joker, however there are a few that have said pretty much the opposite.
I asked some of the staff members at a store in the UK called GAME they also had mixed views on the game. One member of staff specifically said that he was "dissatisfied with the historical accuracy" and how the mechanics of the game functioned. He felt the game was extremely "clunky and to similar to cod"
What are your thoughts?
Call of duty or Battlefield?
