Welcome, Battlefield fans! This year, we’ve broken up the review into its single-player and multiplayer components to give fans of each style of play a better idea of what’s up. This review covers only the single-player mode, with our multiplayer review and overall Battlefield V review coming soon.
All too often, the single-player campaign of a primarily multiplayer shooter is little more than a glorified tutorial. The Battlefield series has certainly been guilty of this in the past, but Battlefield V’s set of three two-hour campaigns definitely isn’t. Each has a fairly interesting story that guides you through a series of locations that are diverse and beautiful when they’re not being reduced to flaming rubble around you. I just would have loved if it made better use of Battlefield’s awesome set of tools to put us in the middle of a full-scale war more often.
