Picked this up last week and sank loads of time into it.
War Stories single player is fun but needs more variety and more missions.
Multiplayer took some getting used to after an extended break from FPS games and I haven't played Battlefield 4 in about 2 years.
It's fun and it's intense but for me BF4 is still better. A wider variety of vehicle gameplay and obviously destructive environments is what makes Battlefield games for me and I think BF4 does it better than BF5 and certainly better than BF1.
You are of course entitled to your opinion and personal taste, but BFV is one of the worst FPS games I have ever played, and it still is even 2 months later after I had made this thread. The game is an absolute mess right now with all the bugs, stuttering, and performance issues that I don't even know how you could put loads of time into it and have fun with it. For one of the biggest AAA franchises out there, the game in its current state is inexcusable and unacceptable.
Aside from the launch, the game:
-Keeps getting broken by patches. Patches are supposed to fix a game, not create brand new bugs and make the old problem worse. BFV is actually reminding me alot like Yukes with the WWE games, because each patch throughout the wrestling games creates new bugs and glitches.
-Still lacks content. 8 months into this game's life span and we have had 1 and a 1/2 maps released, with the half map not being playable on bigger game modes due to "game breaking crashes and issues". Due to all the bugs and issues that keep being released and made from patches, all the game's future content has been delayed (again).
-The map design and core gameplay is the worst I have seen in the series. Almost all of the maps in this game are ginormous to encourage vehicles instead of infantry, which is fucking boring. It splits the teams up too much to where it completely nullifies the all-out-warfare theme that Battlefield is best known for. The game is too quiet because of this. As for the core gameplay, the TTK is still lightning fast which is annoying. It encourages people to camp and abuse bipods because everyone is too scared to run around. Due to the abuse of bipods, it creates another problem:
-Visibility. Anyone that is prone in this game are nearly invisible. It's extremely hard to see people in this game. They even released a patch to fix this problem, but honestly it didn't do shit.
Another thing with visibility that I find laughable is that the maps can't even render certain objects right. Trees, rocks, grass, weapons, crates, they all randomly suffer graphics drops throughout the match to where they give off Minecraft graphics. It doesn't break the game, but it is distracting.
Like I said, I don't even know how you can put time into this game. BF1 is a masterpiece compared to this pile of trash.
