Played some more single-player missions last night and I am starting to see what the majority of reviews pointed out. The campaign is extremely limiting and there seems to be practically no freedom to improvise. It wants you to head to that next waypoint, so you better follow that waypoint! Most games suffer from this but it seems to be taken to another level with Battlefield for some reason. As amazing as the visuals look, the world feels hollow and detached. Just a pretty backdrop that you can’t and shouldn’t interact with outside of what the game is telling you to do.
Played a few more on-line matches too and the game fares much better there (as its supposed to). Still not feeling 100% comfortable in my skin but I am getting there. Been playing the Rush mode and I am getting the feeling that a lot of new players to the series are trying to play this like CoD, because there is very little coordination or teamwork at the moment. In fact, nobody even talks on your team! It can get frustrating when it seems like I am the only person trying to capture/protect an objective and everyone else is running around playing the game like team deathmatch. There’s a playlist for that guys!
