Should I buy Battlefield 1

We felt that Battlefield 1 was mostly a perspective into WW1, with a touch of fantasy that just gave somewhat an effect of nostalgia.

The way the team over at DICE (The group who made this game) took a bit of fantasy perspective, as massive Zeppelins tower over cities, tons of airplanes rushing by across the map, and experimental weapons from World War 1 that are tested on the battlefield.

Of course in reality, Zeppelins wouldn’t last this long on the battlefield, and experimental weapons were never really pushed to mass production (as it is depicted in the game).

However, we felt that the mix of history and experimental weapons during that area, gave it a touch of fantasy, the way its pulled off in the game. (You’re going to need to play it to truly understand what we are talking about).

Battlefield 1 strongly focuses on the open space multiplayer, and usually finds one side pushing forward against the other side as much as they can.

The losing side of the battle is given a giant Zeppelin to hopefully counterbalance the battle (and a cool incentive on being on the losing side) the Zeppelin is quite powerful.

You can shoot from the Zeppelin and be alongside multiple players on the Zeppelin to counter enemy aircraft & infantry.

The Battlefield series isn’t known for being a single player focused game (however from what we have seen so far) this game looks like it can have a decent single player experience.

However, few people buy the Battlefield series for single player (of course) so far this has been an extremely fun multiplayer experience. (as expected from the Battlefield series)

Christmas 2016 is not too far away, we think giving this game away as a present for your family and friends will be a solid experience for them.

It is completely surprising with the video game market heading towards many advanced warfare and sci fi titles, that the team over at DICE was courageous enough to revive World War 1 as a series.

Having done this, forces you to play out of your comfort zone.

Still thinking: Should I buy Battlefield 1?

What was Multiplayer Like?

Multiplayer is straight forward, you have two sides that both oppose each other and are looking to push each other off the map (conquest mode).

There are other modes (we won’t spoil them) but we found conquest to be the most entertaining because fighting against the Zeppelin proved to be too much fun and cinematic. We like the feeling that we are going against a giant machine. In a sense, you feel like the rebels once the Zeppelin appears.

Finding a server was no problem, and we did not have any issues of getting dropped off in the game, nor did we find any issues in lag.

How is it different?

Battlefield 1 is not Battlefield 3 or 4 with World War 1 paint (or skins) over it.

We legitimately felt that they took time to re-evaluate the dynamics of the game, and the game felt different than Battlefield 3 or 4.

The dynamics included advanced weather, where in many cases, sniping was more difficult. Also the weapons had a lot more recoil (since its in an older era) so the game felt a lot more casual and required more teamwork rather than individual skill. (Which we liked, and are noticing as a trend as well).

Is it glitchy / Laggy?

We only experienced the game freezing once, other than that it was good.

Replay value?

Since this is a multiplayer game, the replay value is solid and will have a strong support system since the Battlefield series attracts a large audience, there will be plenty of people to play for years to come.

Whats all the talk about?

People are intrigued by this game because Battlefield 1 has been one of the few games to go against the grindstone. (Meaning they are willing to visit an old genre like World War 1) and people are appearing to like it.

Who is this game meant for?

This game is great for someone who:

  1. Loves teamwork based first person shooters.
  2. Someone who likes to play with lots of people.
  3. People that enjoy the Battlefield series.
