Late Gamer Plays Battlefield V
A Review From Hidai Moya
At it’s core BFV does enough to uphold its franchise even if it is a step down from the stellar quality of its superb predecessor. The campaign, revisionism notwithstanding, was surprisingly emotionally moving, especially the story of the last German soldiers. The urban combat feels excellent. With a complete lack of “Run n Gun”, players must tightly round each building corner & tactfully hug the corridor walls to survive. The gunfire is unforgiving of any wayward onlooker. There is also an indelible appeal to its classic WWII era vehicles. German Panzers, Tiger Tanks, & British Spitfires all feel superb operating in battle & have excellent sound design. The visual customization however is exorbitant in it’s demands for in game credits that are more wisely used to upgrade vehicles & weapons. Pre-Firestorm, it’s a fair BF entry. Grade B
