I'll remain skeptical. While I've always enjoyed BF, none of them have ever been as good as 'insiders' have said. None have ever hit the heights that BF2 managed to hit, more than likely a consequence of diverting much needed time into a single-player mode.

Not to mention that if Battlefront is anything to go by, my hopes are far from high.

kaiserfranz1115d ago

Well, Battlefront left out single player altogether. But I feel that it was a half-hearted effort, with them already busy with Mirror's Edge Catalyst and this new Battlefield

garrettbobbyferguson1115d ago (Edited 1115d ago )

Half hearted effort is putting nicely. They legitimately did not get a f**k about Battlefront. No single player campaign, no loadouts, nothing like the original games. They didn't even care enough to make it at minimum have the same features that any of the recent Battlefield games have. They sold it on name alone. Oh but I guess pretty graphics is good enough for most people. I used to say that Bioshock Infinite was the game that has let me down the most out of my 20+ years of gaming, but that has now gone to Battlefront.

Nathan_Hale531115d ago

It was a minimum effort game. Looked fucking gorgeous but that was it... Became dead within a year and sucked. If they want a MP ONLY game they need a lot more than fucking dance moves.

Alexious1115d ago

Agreed, they might have bitten more than they can chew. I wasn't thrilled by the Mirror's Edge Catalyst beta.

I'm making over $10k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. Go to tech tab for work detail...This is what I do..

SolidStoner1115d ago

Battlefield need to go back where its started... 1942... everything else will be a waste, enough with that future/modern/infinite warfare.........

I'm still waiting for a Battlefield to be on par or better than Bad Company 2. That game was a milestone on my time with the 360. So much fun and even had an enjoyable satirical campaign that was a breath of fresh air compared to the overly serious FPS campaigns. Multiplayer was some of the best ever made imo.

Granted, I never played much of BF2 since I've never been a PC gamer predominately and the BF2: Modern Combat game for the 360 wasn't that good in my opinion.

Ickythump311115d ago (Edited 1115d ago )

BF2 is like the holy grail of battlefield. God i miss that game. Bad company 2 was also very good, but nothing compares to BF2 :)

vickers5001115d ago

Played both bad companies, bf3 and bf4, BF1943, and BF3 in ,my opinion is by far the best. Though I got it several months after launch, so I didn't have to put up with any of the connection issues launch titles usually suffer from.

Also got the BF3 season pass for free during the bf store glitch, and that had so much content it was like a brand new game. And I played BF3 on ps3 too. The controls, even with the input lag (which I ended up preferring, the 2nd patched version I believe) were smooth as butter, the maps were great, the weapons, hell, even the sounds are far better than BF4. I played BF4 on ps4, and shortly afterwards, switched to BF3 on ps3, and the audio is far better in BF3 for some reason.

With the season pass content, BF3 surpassed my previous favorite, Call of Duty 4, as my most beloved multiplayer shooter. BF3 for me is most definitely MY holy grail battlefield game.

BlackTar1871115d ago

No love in this chain for BF2142? BF2 and BF2142 are amazing. I really liked 1942 & 1943 and BF3 as well.

BF4 was a huge letdown

and i know im a minority but i liked BF hardline.

oof461115d ago

BC2 multiplayer was soooo much fun...even when getting spawn raped (which was it's main negative), but it was the single player that shined, in my opinion. I mean, what other military shooters would have the protagonists debating on such important topics as super powers and the movie Predator?

Edito1115d ago

I feel the same, Bad Company 2 was a hell of a game i had so much fun but i don't think they can reproduce what was good about that game, time has changed now everyone is focused on crappy multiplayer games that are dead on arrival...

b163o11115d ago

So what if BFBC2 came with BF5, even the MP with all of the DLC? Would that sweeten the pot even more?

I loved BC2, I actually loved the campaign, and it was one of my first experiences with online MP, blow my friggen mind! I have never spent more time in a BF game. Never.

How big is dice I mean they have worked on battlefront, mirrors edge 2 and now battlefield 5 and they all released so close to one another. That's probably why battlefront had so little content I mean no developer can work on 3 massive games simultaneously and have lots of content.

UltraNova1115d ago

As big as EA wants them to be, apparently.

porkChop1115d ago

DICE didn't make Battlefront. Don't listen to the marketing, "from the makers of Battlefield." It was made by DICE Los Angeles. They were originally called EA Los Angeles and then Danger Close. They made the Medal of Honour games, including the horrible Warfighter. *Some* DICE employees moved to the studio, but it's not really a DICE studio. DICE Los Angeles is a studio that has had to change its name multiple times to get away from the crap games it made in the past.

starchild1115d ago

Good for you. I've enjoyed all the Battlefield games. They're my favorite military-type shooters.

I'm super excited to see what they've done with Battlefield 5.

hardcorehenry1115d ago

I think basing your expectation of the new Battlefield on Battlefront is a mistake. Battlefront is a casual experience through and through. Battlefield is an unstoppable machine. I am infinitely hyped. GOTY 2016.

PiperMCFierceson1115d ago (Edited 1115d ago )

Bf4 is easily one of this gens gems. Hands down their best work. Aside from a nusense "friend" infrastructure.

Khaotic1115d ago

Give dice some credit, while battlefront was one of the most shallow games and I had my fill in a three night rental, it was a technical masterpiece from a graphical and sound standpoint.

Kingthrash3601115d ago

Little bird told me it's about time travel.
Little bird = own brain
But the clues I've heard point to it. I heard ww1 then ww2 the future then ww2 again...why not have them all with time travel? Thet would surprise gamers at least

Make sure it works from launch this time :)


I know man... Was so excited when I bought an X1 and BF4 the same day, but pissed that I could not play it for a couple months since it was straight BROKE lol

dillhole1115d ago

BF4 became a great game in my opinion. But it had such a bad reputation by the time it was working. Hopefully they learnt.....

Deadpooled1114d ago

Still plenty of players online BF4 on PS4, no difficulty in finding games. But if it worked from launch there would probably be more players online now.

Phil321115d ago

Here's hoping it gets fans excited and makes them happy.

detroitmademe1115d ago

I think it'll be a good game and I think it'll be a great game when compared to it's peers. these days "average" is the new the"good". In my opinion the multiplayer shooter market is up for grabs. Just look at the landscape, people are actually excited for a cod remaster😒. if that's not a sign that the shooter genre is up for grabs then I don't know what is.

Alexious1115d ago

Overwatch may disrupt the FPS market much like World of Warcraft did with MMORPGs. Blizzard's magic may work once again

UltraNova1115d ago (Edited 1115d ago )

I can definitely see this happening. Knowing Blizzard they would never 'try and see' anything, if they are doing a new genre/type of game its because they plan to dominate it that particular landscape for years.

Don't forget WoW's appeal and subscribers are diminishing day by day for sometime now. Blizzard needs the next WoW and persistent online FPSs are today's thing.

On topic,

I would love to see Dice bring some of that Bad company quirkiness back to the franchise, in other words do their own fps again not try and get closer to CoD.

Majin-vegeta1115d ago

Well ita COD4 the pinnacle of the series.

Alexious1115d ago

Right, but that's with the nostalgia glasses on. Not sure if COD4 right now, as is, will be as appealing. We'll see

-Foxtrot1115d ago

Once again? So another shitty launch then?

nevin11115d ago (Edited 1115d ago )

Your Avatar matches your comment.

VerdicLinwe1115d ago

I swear to God Foxtrot I think sometimes you don't even care about making a point - you just like to see your own post count go up.

-Foxtrot1115d ago

I was making a point. Saying "once again" while Battlefield 4 took almost a year to become something which should have been at launch.


AgentSmithPS41115d ago

It's sad that so many lickspittles and apologists are trying to defend them after all the broken games they've released.

Hold_It1115d ago

It's sad that the same people complaining about Battlefield 4's launch are a lot of the same people that defend Bethesda's games.

Khaotic1115d ago

@ermac shots fired , I repeat shots

Austin481115d ago

Im with foxtrot here why does anyone need to defend the fact that battlefield 4 launch was just plain awful it of course wasnt as crappy as battlefront now that was a joke lmao nothing but graphics and good sounds with that game thats all no SP or anything and remember its EA they will crush your dreams.

VerdicLinwe1115d ago (Edited 1115d ago )

Fox made his point after I called him on his op. Let's not be so dramatic. If your dreams are hung on these games you should step back and take a deep breath.
