I’ve never been a huge fan of the Battlefield series. I get why people like it. Let’s just say after playing Battlefield 1, EA has made me a believer. Off the bat, this is a beautiful game. Possibly the best looking game I have played on a console. World War I never looked so real, raw and hauntingly beautiful. From the muddy ruins of France to the beautiful dessert of Arabia. It’s a sight to behold. Even the littlest details like mud on your gun. Looks awesome and adds a realism that we hardly see. But even with its Fantastic graphics, it does suffer some slow down and detections issues. For the most part it really doesn’t hinder the experience.
One problem with the Battlefield series. Has always been the lack of a strong single player mode. Battlefield 1 fixes this problem. You get a chance to play as 6 characters in different parts of the world. Each character has more or less about 5 missions. The storylines for each of them is interesting, brutal and short. On average it should take about 6 hours to complete.
The game is a bit challenging. Most modern games have a lot of checkpoints. Your character dies, you just continue from your last checkpoint. Not here. Very few and far from each other. It makes the gamer more calculating and less gung-ho.
Just like the previous games. Multiplayer is awesome. You could customize your character with different insignias, guns, uniforms and pretty much anything you could think of. Battlefield 1 multiplayer modes are a mix of old and new. Classics like Conquest and Domination return, but there are some additional modes that provide new and exciting battles.
One more thing to add, once in awhile there where some sound glitches and they are annoying. The only way to stop it was to restart the game.
With a strong single player and Fantastic multiplayer. A short campaign with graphic and sound glitches hold it from greatness.
