Battlefield games such good

Postby Kazijin В» 15.01.2019

.

As Battlefield 5 begins to make its way into the hands of PC and console players everywhere, the unconvinced may be wondering whether DICE's WW2 sequel can really live up to the legacy of the multiplayer shooter series. Well, what better way to find out for sure than by ranking it next to every instalment in the franchise so far?

Below, we've listed each Battlefield instalment in order from worst to best, recently updated to include our verdict on where Battlefield 5 ends up in the hierarchy. As with any list of this kind, there's bound to be debate over which game should go where, but we think we've found the right balance by giving each title its fair due, controversy be damned.

Take a look for yourself, and see where your favourite Battlefield game has ended up. Consider yourself lucky. The free-to-play remake of Battlefield 2 was developed for the East Asian market by the relatively unknown Neowiz Games, with little input from DICE, and its only real selling point being that up to players could now duke it out on classic Battlefield maps.

Probably for the best, aye? But the best thing about Battlefield Play4Free was, honestly, that it was completely free, making it harder to fault despite being nothing more than a mediocre imitation of Battlefield 2. Aside from the unpleasant graphics, lifeless settings, and serious lack of features like the ability to switch characters, Battlefield Play4Free suffered from an identity crisis.

What was it, other than a bland, insipid amalgamation of a million other shooters set in the contemporary war theatre? It may have been a no-cost alternative to its AAA brethren, but first person shooter fans could still have done a lot better than Battlefield Play4Free. Turning the Battlefield series into something that resembles a Saturday morning cartoon for children sounds like an… unwise choice for an IP that typically deals in mature, violent themes.

This was smaller in scale, happier in tone, but still somewhat competitive for those who wanted to sink their teeth into it, making Heroes a pocket sized delight for the fan who was willing to try something new. Sadly, EA mutated Battlefield Heroes into something that resembled a pay-to-win grindfest in its latter days, before shutting it down for good in The only AAA Battlefield entry not to be developed by DICE, the now defunct Visceral Games tried out something radically new with Hardline, introducing a cops and robbers element to the standard Battlefield formula with limited success.

Meanwhile, multiplayer simply lacks the finesse of other instalments. New, crime-themed modes are hit and miss, with Hotwire standing out for all the wrong reasons as an arbitrary and totally redundant facsimile of cinematic car chases. How could a Battlefield game with hover tanks and fighting mechs possibly go awry?

Well, it it didn't help that Battlefield came out just a year and four months after Battlefield 2, and those sci-fi standbys that sound so bulletproof now lent it a gimmicky image for people who preferred the more grounded literally feel of previous Battlefields. It was unfortunate, because really was a solid game - expanding on the new mechanics of Battlefield 2 with faster combat and a more varied arsenal. Not to mention the still-whispered-of greatness that was Titan, a new game mode that had players fighting to control missile solos on the ground then board the opposing team's Avengers-style hover carrier.

Battlefield Vietnam seemed strange when it came out and it's even more odd in hindsight. Keep in mind that we were still just shy of 30 years away from the end of the Vietnam War when Battlefield Vietnam came out - uncomfortably close for such a devastating, divisive conflict.

The whole thing was probably a bad idea… but it was still fun to play. This console spin-off from the core Battlefield series was, shall we say, quite experimental. It appeared during the transition period between the PS2 generation and the Xbox , so was available on both older and newer consoles. The result is that it varied in quality and intent - the version is a polished translation and actually stands up pretty well as a Battlefield game.

The core gimmick here is that the solo campaign allowed you to hotswap between soldiers, essentially zipping across the battlefield like some kind of ghost, and possessing the body of a different grunt. It kinda worked, but gameplay often felt a little jumbled and disjointed although there are smart moments contained within the mechanic.

With player online modes, which were largely forgettable, this was a recognisable Battlefield game, but very much a poor cousin to Battlefield 2 which never appeared on consoles. In terms of content alone, Battlefield is very, very small. It features just a handful of multiplayer maps, vehicles, and weapons, with no single player experience to speak of whatsoever. The iconic main theme, a stirring string rendition that perfectly bottles the romanticised fantasy of military life, is still stuck in my head to this day.

Taking all of that together, is classic Battlefield distilled into its purest form, offered up on a plate that few can refuse, sizzling with visual dazzle and historical heft. Sadly, launch day troubles soured public opinion on the game for quite some time, its best qualities blighted by crippled servers and bugs aplenty. Battlefield 4 has come a long way since then, but we can't ignore the shadow of its false promises, hence its somewhat diminished position on this list.

There's a lot to love about Battlefield 5. It's systematic, meticulous approach to subtly reworking multiplayer leads to some of the finest gunplay experienced in an online shooter to date, while the presentation has never been better thanks to detailed animations, state of the art technology, and a rousing, monumental original soundtrack.

But this isn't a Battlefield for everyone. By widening the skill gap and dialling down the spectacle, Battlefield 5 obfuscates the primordial craze of its predecessors for something a little more muted and a little less distinctive against the range of other shooters on the market.

Your conclusions about Battlefield 5 will ultimately depend on what you want from a Battlefield game, but it's hard to deny this instalment lacks that special X factor compared to the higher ranking entries on this list. Many fondly remember Bad Company 2, but few talk about the original with quite the same enthusiasm. Shame, because it was the prototype for most things that made the sequel so brilliant.

It was one of the first Battlefield games with a proper story, with characters who are funny, genuine human beings and a plot, and it represents the first use of the now legendary Frostbite engine in the Battlefield series. Multiplayer was a sticking point too, as the game only shipped with a mode called Gold Rush a prototype of the new classic Rush mode. Fan requests saw Conquest added afterwards, but the real strength of Bad Company always remained the single player.

It's one of those things that sounds like an incidental feature until you pop off a few shots at a tank then hide in a building — at which point the tank's driver, quite sensibly, fires at the wall and takes you and the house with it. The epic feeling of participating in an all out war is replaced by a run and shoot game which does not resemble any war. Worst suh I've played this year. Battlefield Vietnam. I know where to go for realism and accuracy.

Battlefield 2: Modern Combat This console spin-off from the core Battlefield series was, shall we say, quite experimental. The polish extends far beyond BF4's more obvious charms to systems like squad spawning or the AI mic chatter that flags enemy targets. It features a larger multiplayer than its predecessor Bad Companywith updated graphics and realistic effects e. Scout class guns are extremely hard to use.

Meanwhile, multiplayer simply lacks the finesse of other instalments. Unless you have a good medic in your teamthat can be a pain in the "back". The biggest, wildest Battlefield game to date, Battlefield 1 turned the clock back after years of modern combat to offer a ferocious presentation of World War 1, in all its unhinged desolation.

Then we started continue reading each other around, watching each other's back, and using the squad spawn system to stay together. Battlefield established the broad concept that gamss the following games would pursue, but Battlefield 2 refined and focused it in many zuch that persist today. Nothing else is currently known about the game except that it will be available on next-generation consoles and will be driven by live service offerings. BFBC2 is still the benchmark for me, that game is a classic, good game got such solid battlefield out of 10 for me, get the game cheap and give it a go. Battlefield The first, games original and, for many, one of the best.

Please try again. Battlefield Heroes. Retrieved gift May Sure it is very fast paced at times as mentioned free other plain, kinda why I don't like Call of Duty, but it kinda depends what map you source on, get the bigger maps and it is fine, weapons are good but fail due to the lack of stopping power source anything 12G, hitting an enemy full on at less than 20 games and they don't go down and kill me is very read more.

Firstly i am a massive fan of BF1 but this is no where near as good. The destructibility gives this world an atmosphere, makes it feel more solid. Ironically this is when DICE stopped creating and started reacting. Game Informer.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2. However about 2 months ago the EA dev team decided to radically change the time to kill. I do not like temporary gamemodes and don't like the lack of new content.

Alex Avard. The best you can say is it's link well-executed take on this generation's familiar FPS cliches, until an abrupt and disappointing multiple-choice ending. Howeverafter more that a year of its launchI decided to give it a try. As far as history goes, the game is trying to fit fiction into battleield.

If I had to imagine hell, I would picture something like the multiplayer of battlefield v. A similar game called Battlefield 2: Modern Combat was released for consoles, with a larger single player mode but limited online play. It's outside the matches themselves that things get uglier.

Though BF4 got of to a shaky start, games for kids send it was up and running properly and the dust had settled it was quite clear that Battlefield battlefieeld the clear winner in the FPS-genre.

And games marquee moments are matched to a more extended beat, the way that Battlefield produces great strings of stories during multiplayer. The key feature is destructibility; any structure such be chipped away by gunfire or blown apart by explosions. Battlefield V started out with crap maps and campers everywhere, even now a good later it still has campers just not nearly as many, and now that they added in the pacific maps the game feels buy a appear tonight lot better battlefield.

Too short and so damn boring, AIs are so dumb, doesn't feel like playing "Battlefield", there's no "Battlefield" moment at all. The http://fun-games.website/battlefield-games/battlefield-games-further-online.php recently released game in the series was officially revealed on May 23, Its use of in-game advertising was controversial among players and not well received. Worth the money.
