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.

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

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.

The improvements, fixes, and additions since launch have made Battlefield 5 a much better game, but it's done nothing for the lack of originality.

Nov 8, 2018

Not as drastic a change up as its WW1 predecessor, nor as wild or wondrous, Battlefield 5's deliberative design sidelines its strengths as a simulative sandbox.

Battlefield V is a good, if safe game that feels more iterative than innovative. Its legacy will likely be defined by how steady and interesting the stream of new content is moving forward

It's a fine execution of a familiar formula. There are rough spots, but Battlefield V incorporates small, effective tweaks and truly shines in the more focused objective-based modes.

All these issues of performance and balancing make for an unenviable situation for the developers at DICE.

Battlefield's traditional strengths remain firmly in place amid DICE's return to World War II: great graphics, audio, and a scope that few other games can equal. But it's a thinner package than usual, and the decision to hold important modes like Firestorm until 2019 feels like a crucial misstep. Battlefield 5 is a good shooter as it is, but we wouldn't blame you if you decided to wait until it's had some time to mature.

But, then, that’s Battlefield all over – a game that aspires to be both a legitimate portrayal of war and an entertaining video game, but opts to take the easy route and do rid with any semblance of mature, balanced storytelling and instead replaces it with a rushed, disjointed campaign and a multiplayer component that’s getting seriously long in the tooth.

While I'm happy with what we got, I ultimately can't help but wonder what another six months could've done for Battlefield V. In a business with virtually no downtime, that's just the way it is.

Battlefield V scratches an itch that many will have had since Battlefield 4. DICE have found a great feel for the gunplay, the tweaks to classes and additions like fortifications largely work as intended, and the way that Grand Operations have evolved brings a refreshing variety to the game. Sure, it's around the edges at launch and with some largely forgettable single play War Stories, Battlefield V is a diamond in the rough.

An impressive shooter, both in gameplay and technical elements, which lacks of content at launch, but promises lots of new maps, modes and weapons (free for everyone) for coming months.

Battlefield V achieves a full immersion within the WWII phenomenon due to a magnificent storyline and some excellent general details. The multiplayer meets all of the expectations and in the end the franchise manages to stay as a reference in the FPS genre.

As it stands right now, the game is a rough, uncut diamond that could’ve been the crown jewel of class-based multiplayer first-person shooters.

Battlefield V reconfirms its usual and granitic certainty in multiplayer, while the single player campaign fails to strike as we would have hoped.

A good but incomplete game that tries to improve every part of Battlefield 1, and achieves it... While falling short on content on its release (no coop, no battle royale, only 3 shor campaigns...)

Overall, Battlefield 5 is a brilliant shooter that’s hamstrung by its setting.

Battlefield V ultimately feels like a lateral release with little pushing the franchise forward when you judge it by what's here and not what may or may not come.
