Battlefield V Review Summary

StrongCritic Consensus

Battlefield Presentation

Bugs and Polish

Campaign Miss

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.

Critic Reviews for Battlefield V

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.

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.

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

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.

Read full review

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.

Read full review

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

Read full review

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.
