Battlefield 1

    Open Beta is out right now, I've had some fun with it when I could connect. Any thoughts?

    Love the game, so far. Can't wait to see what the rest of the guns, gadgets, vehicles, and maps have to offer. I plan on picking this game up on release.

    Started playing Battlefield with either Bad Company or Bad Company 2, and it's been my favorite FPS for quite a while now. Listening to their fans and feedback is a huge part of why it is my favorite FPS series. It's been too long since there has been a throwback WWI/WWII game.

    There are some obvious flaws as expected, but I have full confidence that these early issues will be ironed out and ready for release. The pause menu, main menu lag and occasional freeze is quite frustrating. There have also been some one on one battles that I've encountered where I'm no more than 25 feet away from someone and it takes well over 15-20 accurately fired bullets to take someone out. Also had an issue where I was in an armored jeep, and I was driving away from capture point F, and the jeep simply disappeared and I was stranded on foot. Looked around for a second, then got sniped! Confident these issues will be resolved with proper feedback from the community.

    Love the sniping, and the vehicles (including the train) on the beta map.

    I've only had a few moments to play this so far, but this is a pretty good breakdown:

    Battlefield 1 beta: Surprisingly, WWI is exactly where Battlefield

    I found the same thing. Firing from the hip or quickly yielded predictable results. Calm, planned sniping headshots worked beautifully but only if you absolutely nailed the shot.

    The map is no Metro, but I have had some fantastic battles at C flag and I like how diverse the map is. Horses seem a little OP and the start menu is glitchy but it's been a good beta. I had no intention of picking this game up but I am seriously considering it now. It has the same "fun" appeal BF3 and Bad Company 2 had for me, personally.

    Might as well use my Bestbuy GCU to preorder this.

    Who is in?

    I passed on the $48 Amazon discount (which is still active) and opted for the $53 digital copy via EA Access, plus my $10 store credit from having suffered through downloading Fallout 3 for free and having it taken away from me :lol:

    I've barely had a chance to play it, but I think they did a great job overhauling the gameplay. It is genuinely challenging to take down your opponent, but when you do it's pretty satisfying. I also look forward to playing in parties, both for the teamwork and to lighten the substantial grimness of the game.

    Verdict? I have a small group of friend debating on buying it and since we've become particular about how we put our money - trying to avoid shitty games, I usually get input in advance.

    I'm really enjoying it. They really overhauled the gameplay in a good way. The new guns are interesting and a pretty solid challenge.

    Getting kills takes skill. You're going to get whooped early. Just accept that and enjoy the spectacle as you adjust.

    Team work might be more essential in this game than any before it. The team that coordinates their efforts wins every time.

    I want to see how the game plays out once people have some idea what they're doing. For now its pretty fun.

    The tanks are nasty but there are good constraints. The variety of vehicles and ways to attack is awesome.

    The maps are unbelievable. They're so big yet manageable. The bullet drop is awesome. The destructability is great. The variety of grenades is a lot of fun. I really enjoy the lack of precision with a number of the weapons, specifically the strong ones like the rifle grenades (old school 40 ml ).

    The shifting weather is phenomenal. You might start out in bright sunshine, then clouds roll in , followed by oppressive fog.

    They nailed the feel of the battle most of all. So much gritty , harsh warfare. So many people everywhere. Its a grind but a playable one.

    My one gripe so far is that rush is set up terribly. They spawn the defense 50-100 meters from the bomb, so if your forces have to respawn, they'll waste the entire time running back to it.

    The joining system is a little flaky for now but all ea games are near launch,

    This game is fun if you have teammates to chat with. So get them all to buy it and get in our squad. I can't wait to play with more than 4 people in a chat party.

    Btw, the campaign looks pretty solid and serves as a pretty good tutorial with time to adjust to the weapons without getting torn up
