Is Battlefield V a failure in your opinion?










(The game was 50% off two weeks after launch)



For gamers that have been a long-time Battlefield fan, or a casual that was recently introduced into the Battlefield series, do you believe the newest and most controversial title within the series is considered to be a failure? Why or why not?
I was first introduced to the series from Battlefield 4 and really enjoyed it over playing Call of Duty, that was when I was making the transition away from COD. I then got Battlefield 1 and absolutely loved the game, it became one of my favorite shooters. But with BFV, it's absolutely heart-wrenching to see how they completely derailed the momentum that they had from the previous two successful titles and destroy it. This game was supposed to be phenomenal, but it came nowhere close. I'm not going to drag this out with a full on review of why it sucks, since there are many of those, but I wanted to list 3 reasons on why it sucks and if anyone agrees.


1. The obvious catastrophe of the launch: The whole "don't like it, don't buy it" was just straight up the most dick move a game developer can say to its fans that were rejecting certain political ideas. They called the fans "woman-haters" when that wasn't what it was about. They injected feminism into this video game simply because of political correctness, instead of just making the game historically accurate similar to BF1. Sorry, but women did NOT fight on the front lines aside from the Soviet Union or hell British pilots, they could have just introduced them there. The launch of this game just brings a bad taste to my mouth. Even COD WW2 had more authenticity.

2. Lack of content: This game just seems like it's so far behind on content compared to BF1 that there isn't really a reason to play. There have been no major DLC drops aside from the Firestorm battle royal mode that wasn't even in the game at launch. The game was pushed back a month for "polishing" but in actuality they didn't want their sales effected by RDR2. The game launched with an entire game mode missing, a campaign missing, several bugs and glitches, and literally no factions.
We have a World War 2 game without the French army, Soviet Union, USA, Italy, or Japan. We have a Fall of France operation mode, but the French aren't even in it. Like, are you kidding me? Also, the game has been out for 6 months now and there have barely been any new maps or weapons.

3. Visibility and game balancing are awful: The visibility in this game, man, it's pretty bad. The graphics are weird with its super bright colors, that it takes away that this is a WW2 game. In BF1, they nailed the immersion of the maps with a dark and gritty atmosphere. This game lacks soul. Also, it's near impossible to see enemies that they're practically invisible. And you can't even spot them aside from when you're playing the Scout class, because they completely removed spotting.
Game balancing is awful as well. TTD is the worst I've ever seen in a video game, to where you die within a milli-second with zero reaction time. Most games when you're getting shot at, you have time to react and either fight back or run for cover. You have a chance. This game, you're dead at the blink of an eye. It's aggravating instead of having fun.

What do you guys think of the controversial Battlefield V?

I wouldn't say controversial. It didn't deliver anything new, edgy, or original. It was a battlefield 1 with a different healing and slightly different squad system.

I would say failure because it was too similar to the previous entry, but still had all the issues you mentioned.

Re: Is Battlefield V a failure in your opinion?

I agree on points 1. and 2. Battlefield had always been (and prided itself) on being more realistic than COD or other type shooters. Now they deviate from that in the characters and the company is like "deal with it". Regardless of how you feel about it, purposely antagonizing your customers is seldom a sound business strategy.

On point 3. I honestly don't mind the visibility, or even the quick death. It does make the game more realistic to be honest. It can suck if you like to run and gun though.

In some ways its really odd. It's like they said, "Hey, lets toss realism and history out the window for this part of the game when it comes to characters.. BUT, lets make it very realistic in combat so people are hard to see and die quickly!!"

Re: Is Battlefield V a failure in your opinion?

Battlefield is falling into the trap of Call of Duty did: too many games, too soon. The last BF game I enjoyed front to back and put hours upon hours into was 4. I hit level 100 on that shit.

I bought BFH (enjoyed it mostly), BF1 (I'm bad at it and its mediocre) and played the beta for V (and disliked it mostly).

Battlefield will always be a failure until they bring back the Bad Company series.

Its made by EA, a failure of a company, so of course.

It still kills me that the fucked up sonething so easily avoidable. You want female combatants in your run and gun respawn-fest? Set the game.....IN MODERN FUCKING TIMES!

Women weren't in the army 70-100 years ago. They are now, boom problem solved, backlash doesnt even come up.

I thought Battlefield had an advantage though since they are on a 2 year cycle instead of doing yearly releases like COD, which are ALWAYS cash-grabs because every year feels the same except the era.

That worked well from Battlefield 2 > Bad Company > Bad Company II >Battlefield 3 > Battlefield 4.
