Video Games NOW Battlefield 5 Review
Welcome to another Video Games NOW Review Video. Battlefield 5 has been an anticipated title since it was announced this year at E3. I did get my hands on the beta in September but finally, the release date came around and well I have some strong opinions of the game. I would like to say that Battlefield 5’s Campaign is OK, it isn’t as emotionally impactful as Battlefield 1, nor as thrilling. But my main dislike for the game was multiplayer. Unfortunately, I can’t comment on Tides of War, or Firestorm since they are not available yet.
I will start with the positive aspects of this game. Battlefield 5 makes another great period piece game, this time based off world war 2. The history is accurate, and the environment feels real. The gameplay is very relistic, including bullet drop, realistic bullet hits and damage, and the annoying but realistic way your soldier moves and handles their weapons.
Battlefield 5’s Scout Class is Plentiful
I do appreciate that Battlefield gives you the option to be which every class that suits your fancy. However, there are way too many snipers at one time. Obviously, there can only be so many tanks and so many planes because it would not make it fun for the 8 people not in tanks getting annihilated. I could say the same thing for the scout class. At least half of the 32 people on a team seem to be snipers, which makes the game for the remaining 16 people completely frustrated and afraid to play the game the way they want. So if you want to play the entire game prone only to get sniped anyway and have a
Maps are stacked and matchmaking is not up to snuff
On top of the classes comes the other big factor in Battlefield 5, Matchmaking. Games like
Prone to survive…
It is instinctive, just like building a wall and stairs in Fortnite. When you get shot at, you instantly prone. It reduces damage from bullets, grenades and puts you behind cover.. sometimes. Unfortunately, in Battlefield 5,
Battlefield 5’s Respawn system spawns anger.
Respawning in this game is hot garbage. Either you spawn so far away that you take 2 mins to get back into the fight in which, you then get killed because everyone can somehow see you before you come over the crest of the hill. Alternatively, you spawn on your squad and risk dying immediately. Sometimes the game will not let you spawn in for whatever reason you are watching your squad mate literally sit behind cover and it won’t let you spawn. Also, you seem to get respawn penalties for no reason. I got stabbed and I had a 15 second respawn countdown. There is a lot of waiting between your lives which is short-lived. There is also the issue with how the squads are formed. Instead of filling squads one at a time as people come in, They plop you into one of the 16 squads available so that means sometimes you are left with no squad at all! This makes the game extremely annoying as you jump from the plane and get killed before you’ve even hit the ground and now have to wait another 30 seconds in the plane to jump again! on top of this, say 14 squads are full, and the last 2 have a party of 2 each that have closed the squad so no one else can join. We’ll thanks dink now I don’t have a squad.
Bugs and Glitches
Bugs and glitches can be game breaking. One of the biggest glitches that I have coming across in Battlefield 5 was the no weapon glitch. Upon reading on the internet it seems that this was a problem in previous Battlefield games as well. Once I was in a game I wanted to switch classes. But once I spawned in, I didn’t have any weapons, not even my knife. I only had my toolkit for reinforcing cover.
