5 Reasons Battlefield: Hardline Has an Uphill Battle Ahead

CraveOnline: "We’re at the end of the year, and naturally I’ve found myself looking at what video game releases await us in 2015. One game that stands out is Battlefield: Hardline, one of several releases that were originally designated for 2014 but wouldn’t finish development in time. Now, it joins the roster of 2015 with its elite game releases and all.

Battlefield: Hardline is a game has a lot more adversity to overcome than its comrades. That’s not the say that it won’t be successful, but its road to success is one that’ll be difficult to navigate. Below are five reasons why."

The storyline has me interested. And I never play FPS.

We'll see. I'm not excited for the game after playing in the alpha. I love me some Battlefield, but I'm playing the wait and see game right now. I'd really prefer a new Bad Company right now.

I do think Visceral has a good chance of making a great campaign. Battlefield always seems to fall flat in the campaign, but Visceral has made some good campaigns.

I'm a big BF fan too. This time of year, I look for more reasons not to buy a game than to. Lord knows, I'll probably be singing a different tune come Spring.

I don't want to sound like I'd rather them deliver the same experience and not innovate. But I want bigger! Bigger maps, more vehicles.
I feel that this spin-off is only going to limit these aspects, by providing a more intimate, constantly intense experience - which smaller maps obviously cater more towards.

Gimme scale!

Personally, I don't see it providing what most have come to expect from a traditional Battlefield game. And in that sense, it does have an uphill battle, of having to appeal to even the franchises biggest fans.

The beta didn't feel like a typical Battlefield game and I'm not sure if that's a good thing.

I preordered my copy months ago. I won't be changing my mind. I've wanted a game like this for years.
