Like the Call of Duty franchise, Battlefield has been doing the same thing for a few years now, and some could argue that the result is becoming a bit stale. While Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare aimed to shake things up with futuristic weaponry and gadgets to spice up both the single-player and the competitive space, it still largely felt like the same ol’ Duty. But what if you took the typical Battlefield formula and engine and reworked it for a game of cops and robbers instead of macho military elites? Battlefield Hardline employs Visceral Games – the developer behind the Dead Space series – to do just that, and we’d say the results pay off. Well, to an extent.
