Why are we so negative about Battlefield Hardline?

onPause writes:

Battlefield Hardline isn’t being developed by DICE which may be the biggest strike against it from hardcore fans of the franchise – or is it something else? Maybe it’s EA and DICE’s current stand with Battlefield players, since the last entry into the franchise – 2013′s Battlefield 4 – had a rather bumpy launch and still isn’t quite fixed by many accounts.

The story is too old to be commented.

Because 'we' are getting tired of being ripped off by Publishers putting out mediocre rehashed games at extortionate prices. BF:Hardline was called out for what it is, an expansion pack charged at full price, and then with added Premium priced DLC on-top. It's a wholesale scam, masquerading as a 'new' game.

Well said.

I hope nobody buys it.

It does ship with a full single player as well tho - that is something that games cost even without MP. Also, isn't that why EA/Visceral chose to delay it? You could always choose not to buy it...

Exactly. Gamers are so entitled today.
Especially in territories where the games are alot cheaper (NA) than they are elsewhere.

Like what you see? BUY!
Don´t like what you see? Don't buy.

Simple as that.

For the record I'm not buying BF:Hardline! Regardless, it is still a scam on the publishers side to take BF4 assets, repackage them and call it a new game.

I however agree that Hardline will contain a single player campaign, and therefore the publisher will use that to justify the price of the game.

But let me ask you, since when has the Battelfield series ever been about it's single player campaign? If you think this game is going to be any different then you have a BIG surprise coming your way!!!

Because just like hating on COD became popular so did hating on Battlefield post B4 launch. I understand that people are angry but this is more than just an "expansion". There is a new Campaign with a new story structure. A new multiplayer with all new modes, weapons, vehicles, ect. And it's made by a new developer. Now I'm not saying that Battlefield Hardline will be a great game by any means, but I'm optimistic about it and don't think it deserves all this criticism. Especially given that it's changed more from it's predecessor than many other franchises that haven't been nearly as scrutinized.

I like what they're trying to do with it, but I have to agree on a single point - it feels too much like Battlefield 4 and it shouldn't. It just FEELS like a BF4 addon.

It is an expansive expansion that is done all wrong. This is a cops and robbers game not a full scale military shooter. They should play differently but they don't in this case (plays pretty much the same as BF4).

It would have made more sense to do what COD has done and keep the thing a military shooter (especially if they are using the design from BF4). Hardline is an example of laziness

Because Hardline is a mod that's trying to be sold for $60.

mcroddi661d ago

So Single Player constitutes mod also ;)
