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.

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. It’s not a massive, dramatic reinvention of the series, but I wasn’t expecting that anyway.

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.

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.
