After embracing the courageous men and women who’ve died for what they’ve believed in I was reminded of a quote from John F. Kennedy. Ask not what your country can do for you, but what can you do for your country. I feel that Battlefield 1 personifies that message, regardless of where war have taken place.
There are five missions, each telling its own story, while showing you the similarities in sacrifice and what it means to live to die for freedom and liberty. From a selfish man who risked his life to save another, a hero that will do anything to lead his brigade though it could his own life or even losing those close to you in one moment. This installment of Battlefield is by far the closest any shooter has taken us to the war zone.
Battlefield 1 to be quite honest begins through an incredibly slow pace through mud and blood with the help of a tank that goes by old Bess. The majority of the mission consist of you leading a tank and/or team to safety as you attempt to trick enemies of being ambushed, ultimately becoming a one-tank mission.
From riding the enemy front lines in a tank to being the hero in the sky Battlefield 1 is a much needed refreshment to the shooting genre. I’m surprised at how DICE stayed so close to world war, providing more in-depth stories than the lone ranger saving the world and focusing on just one terrorist.
Each weapon in Battlefield 1 feels genuine and authentic from the shooting to the horrific reloading times. And equally the massive environment allows multiple ways to take down the threat and an amazing fashion as you and your team or you alone seek dominance.
As with the stories, developers also did a remarkable job making each character likable and leaving strong lasting impressions in their stories, regardless if it ended in life or death.
Multiplayer in Battlefield 1 is quite the experience as maps are big and the impressions are even bigger. With multiple factions all on the field at once in Operations, Conquest; over-sized version of domination with tanks that can turn the tides of victory in one moment, Rush (objective based missions) and more.
What works best in multiplayer is the unique class that benefits each type of player from the sniper, medic or run and gun. And as aforementioned, there’s plenty of heavy artillery around each map to put a screeching halt on the attacking force.
