Battlefield Presentation
Bugs and Polish
Campaign Miss

Summary: For multiplayer fans of this series, there's a lot to love about Battlefield V. It brings the classic Battlefield presentation and gameplay to a World War 2 setting, with some nice changes to make things feel fresh. However, the campaign is still lacking, and the launch bugs still present.

7.5 / 10.0

Battlefield V is a grand and addictive shooter with some smart ideas for improving gunplay and team dynamics, but at launch it has too many technical issues and holes in its content to excel.

No Recommendation / Blank
Eurogamer

A strong if slim shooter that lays down strong foundations for the future, while feeling a little unfinished.

7.9 / 10.0

Despite changes such as fortifications, more physical character movement, and an increased focus on squads, it still scratches that distinctive FPS itch that Battlefield always has. It’s not a massive, dramatic reinvention of the series, but I wasn’t expecting that anyway.
