Battlefield 1942 and Vietnam hold absolute admiration in my eyes and truly opened up the door to the world of multiplayer madness for me.
With recent titles being largely nothing more than let downs the inevitability of BF1 attaining the same infamous status was almost too much to bare. However, I am delighted to announce this hype train is not stopping at mediocrity platform and instead cruising through all the way to success station. Sorry, lame I know but it had to be done.
I find myself reminiscing to no end about those titles when I play Battlefield 1. The feeling is both fantastic and surreal. EA truly nailed it right on the head with this reincarnation of a bygone generation of FPS.
EA has truly captured the grit and intensity of what I assume a soldier must’ve endured during WW1. Based on this title alone I am grateful that I have yet to experience this insanity…yet, Trump may change that outcome in a short period but I suppose Hillary probably would’ve done so in record time. I digress, the title is truly a masterpiece and will most certainly evoke that long lost enjoyment Battlefield titles used to provide.
The gameplay is electric, before you know it several hours would’ve past you by and the intention to cease will not exist. The campaign is well thought out and provides decent character development across multiple soldiers fighting on different fronts.
However, what really impressed was the insanely joyous multiplayer experience which at worst will have you laughing at a frighteningly quick loss and at best laughing maniacally at the destruction you inadvertently or directly caused.
Interestingly the graphics on both consoles were acceptable and sometimes impressed with vivid explosions and environment effects. However, on PC the experience is vastly superior and you will be glued to your screen in seconds.
The entire title screams success and will hopefully spark an old/new methodology of creating these titles. I truly suggest you get onboard the awesomeness express.
