Big ambitions fail to deliver a fresh experience.
Exactly. As soon as I read the title I was thinking, "Yeah, no shit."
The reveal and initial trailer of BFV was so disappointing that it’s not actually possible for me to be any more disappointed in the game, first Battlefield game ever that I won’t be buying, I hope they haven’t ruined the franchise for good because it used to be my favorite. That being said Battlefield is a multiplayer game, they tacked on a campaign at some point last generation for no good reason, they should just drop it and concentrate on why people play Battlefield because they’ve obviously forgotten.
Well duh, the whole game is trash this year... I don't know what they were thinking I played the beta and it sucked, and for the first time ever I think i'm just going to skip this years battlefield..
Agreed, LOVED BF1 played it for 2 years, so disappointed.
BFV will flop!
No... it definitely won't flop. And I can't help but to see some alt-right motivations behind that sentiment.
Why is everything Alt right to you people?
Because they're trumptards
Lol @the "alt-right". You are no better than people who scream "sjw" all the time.
You’re just as worst as an alt right assuming things, if they don’t agree with you then they’re racist. Let me guess, you’re part of the “resistance”?
Haha. It definitely won't flop. What some people don't understand is that the people making comments on this site are a vocal minority at any time. Whether they are saying positive things or not. If you look at what is popular in the MP world of video games right now, this game has everything it needs to succeed. And it will. Whether some people are mad about the historical inaccuracies or not.
I have loved BF since BF2 on 360 but this year's just feels the same as BF1 when I played the beta, I think the idea of going back to World Wars was better than ACTUALLY going back to World Wars, times have moved on and I just can't wait till they go back more modern, Vietnam modern at least but would love a full blown upgrade to what we got with BF4...maybe more akin to Bad Company 2 multiplayer destruction etc...it's a shame and I'm gutted to say it but I feel like I won't be getting this iteration of BF.. things might change as I see the other maps etc but for now im just gonna wait and see.
Yea in THIS site they’re a minority. On EVERY site it’s either no one is talking about it or it’s mostly negative. I actually don’t know a single person who even cares this is coming out. The beta got a very lukewarm reception, BLOPS and RED DEAD are out by the time this comes, etc The game will sel but I’m leaning far more to the it will be a major disappointment. They chose to set it during a time period people like and mucked it up with a bunch of nonsense. I watched the Narvik campaign footage today. You ski down a mountain into a village by yourself as a teenage girl one man armying the entire German battalion with throwing knives...while skiing. It’s just stupid. No I’m not saying it’s stupid cuz it’s a woman. The scenario is stupid.
According to ea pre orders so far have been disappointing. And they are going to release in the same window as a rockstar game that's suicidal
When is Polygon not disappointed lol.
Polygon being disappointed about the campaign despite it ticking every single one of its sjw boxes is surprising but very indicative of it still being an ea game at heart
"sjw" ... Really? Nobody cares about your implied oppressive political ideologies. Let people play as who they want. Or better yet, instead of commenting on the internet, create something yourself. If BFV isn't a game you want to play, make your own. Or just continue rage typing within the confines of your four walls. The great world will continue to spin with or without your consent.
Not really raging at the game it is and it will probably be forgotten about a month post release what it is more pointing out that polygon has a heavy heavy bias. The sites trash. But bfv meh I'll be playing red dead instead this summer. Also can't help but notice you defending the game in every post so I'm assuming you work for ea or polygon because no one is that defensive unless they are personally invested
“Let people play as who they want” I guess theme means jack shit anymore huh? I’ll be waiting for masterchief in the next cod set in 1914.
Definitely sounds like a different take on ww2 with smaller stories about soldiers and civilians doing what they could do to fight the Nazis. I wonder if people will like it or not though due to the game not being a huge spectacular of war like Normandy we get.
Man, I really wish it had that grand feel to it. I was truly expecting it. I enjoy feeling like a small cog in a giant machine in WW2 games. I hate feeling like the entire war effort depends upon the success or failure of this one, unrealistically risky, spec ops style suicide mission.
That was actually the appeal for me in CoD 3, MoH Frontline, and even that History Channel Civil War game, the "Secret Missions" one. Most of what you did was lay the groundwork for the grander battles out there, some of which you controlled, others which you did not. But it was an awesome feeling that I can't quite explain.
lol dude. I saw the Norway footage. You ski down the mountain into town and use throwing knives at the Germans while skiing and one man armying the entire army as a teenager. It’s pretty stupid.
This game was never about campaigns... so there's that.
Yeah but they can make good ones from time to time like bad company
That was what.... 8 years ago?
every BF SP campaing have been terrible since the greatly enjoyable BFBC2
Why waste time on a SP mode when the real attraction is the MP. The latest CoD figured it out.
Hey at least it has one!
I dont care. The only mission I want is the one I can drive the Tiger Tank. All I care its about the MP.
I haven't bought a Battlefield game since Battlefield 2 Bad Company, that game was dope. Just wish someone would make a legit RPG WWII game. Imagine logging in, air dropping into Normandy, or storming the beaches, take over certain parts of Europe. Then you get a base/social space after completing the campaign. Then you have all these different missions to go on. Rescue certain civilians or targets of interest like scientists or revolutionaries. Or having the front completely change from one month to the next, forcing the Allied forces to constantly move their front lines, take on new missions in new territories. And as you progress, you get cool cosmetic items, weapons, specialty weapons, classic weapons from WWI, badges on your clothes for achievements and things of that nature. Been waiting forever for someone to make a game like this. I don't even care if someone steals my idea, I would play the crap out of it.
Why would someone expect a remarkable campaign from Dice? Look at Dice’s recent FPS campaign track record: BF4 (dumb AI & generally all round mediocre and short), BFV (terrible AI, conquest maps as missions, short, hit and mission stories and a lot of over the top historically inaccurate nonsense),Battlefront 2 (Terrible AI, mp maps recycled for missions, short & poor story). EA and Dice always overstate the campaigns of their games, it just marketing meant to woo consumers.
That's too bad, I personally look forward to the campaign. However, you're more than welcome to experience Black Ops 4 campaign instead... Oh wait...
I’ll take BR over BFVs campaign. From the gameplay I’ve seen it looks like a waste of time. Apparently it’ll be about 2-3 hours
Breaking up the campaign into little stories didn't work in BF1, and I'm not surprised that it doesn't work in 5. Just do one long campaign.
I think another underlying issue with BF1’s campaign is the design level which is plan weak. The War Stories in BF1 too me are just an easy way to apply stories to recycled conquest maps.
True, but they weren't gonna make completely new locations just for SP. It would have cost more time and money.
Not surprising. I’d put money on BF skipping the campaign next time after seeing the black ops 4 success. Remember that BFV has battle royale too. I think that’s a majority of the sales anyways, the easy money.
The game will be good as all BF games have been. The naysayers can say what they want, this continued bitching and moaning will fall on deaf ears. As it stood, apparently the debut trailer was over the top, and now this SP trailer is too reserved? I believe at this point nothing will satisfy certain individuals regardless of what is done. Whatever.
