    Battlefield 1 2nd Sep 16 at 9:01 AM
    Is anyone playing the Open-Beta at the moment?

    I've stuck about 3 hours in so far, and my initial impression is that it's fun (albeit relatively shallow gameplay) with outstanding visuals and sound.

    The map - Sinai Desert - is being slated, but it's a good showcase of the visuals/mechanics of the game.

    I'm glad it's Battlefield that have taken the charge to bring a World War One FPS to the fore. Call of Duty would have ruined it.

    Also glad to see they are not focusing on just the cliche trench warfare. Expect to see a Jutland style naval battle and as you've hinted a battle on the Sinai peninsula. I hope Russia and Austria Hungary campaigns are playable.

    If they pull it off there could be a slew of WW1 fps games and a chance to realy electrify the market, seeing as WW2 and modern/future warfare have been done to death.

    Other than the SinaI and European theatres of war I'm not sure what other area will be playable.

    I've just looked at the trailer for Verdun it looks decent and gets a positive review on Steam.

    Yes I agree, covering them theatres of war would be different, as far as I know they haven't been covered in games.

    Verdun was a PC gamer some how the port will be I don't know, hoping it turns out to be really good. I've been waiting for a WW1/2 game since the days of COD WaW/Modern Warfare. Not a fan of the whole jet packs and futuristic in the latest versions of COD.

    Loving it so far, yes its just one map, with a set time, and limited weapons/etc but the more I play it the more depth it seems to have.. after 4 or 5 hours play I discovered that I could unlock a whole bevy of tanks.. also I never touch planes in BF games, but I started flying the bomber and had a blast

    So far so good

    I've put a few hours into it, it's quite fun. I've only played a tiny bit of Battlefield before so it's a big learning curve. I can control my player just fine and change loadouts but I don't know how to "spot" someone and I don't know why I can't hear anyone else, maybe they have no mics on? That's pretty rare though isn't it to have no one on mic?

    God the vehicle controls are HORRIBLE! I'm used to them now but... yeah they're pretty "different" alright!

    It's nice to have a WWI shooter, but tbh I think it'd be nice to have a current gen "current" shooter. More COD's style that Battlefield really due to how modern warfare is but I'd like to play that.

    I've played all the BF's. On BF1 i'm disappointed at what they've done to rush! The tanks are way too OP and sniping is far too easy. I get the feeling they've tamed BF for CoD players, but conquest is really good i'll buy it but i never have the time to be a hardcore player so i just play them for casual fun.

    Parties killed in game chat, for lone wolves anyway.

    I've always struggled with Battlefield games. The lure of WW1 has drawn me in, but having played it, it's Battlefield all over, doesn't seem much different to me really.

    I really dislike the newer COD games they are very "arcade like" compared to Battlefield. More realism and more skill.

    I had never played a Battlefield game unline Medal of Honor and COD until BF3 and was instantly hooked. Never bought COD or MOH since.

    As Spinkz says sniping is too easy, I'd rather use a tank or be on the train, have tried the aircraft but Im not a fan of aircraft as the controls are opposite.

    You can flip the aircraft controls in the settings

    I've been a Battlefield series fan since back when Battlefield 2 was released but i've been pretty disappointed with this latest version.

    The pre order price is ridiculous and in terms of features in the game such as weapons, add ons, unlocks etc is seems a lot more simple than Battlefield 4. I guess that's to be expected as it's set in WW1 but it seems madness to pay so much for (IMO) a more boring game.

    Hopefully the rumours about 2143 are true.

    Yes, the pre-order price is a joke. What i find worse though is the digital price for the xbox is almost £55. WTF. Why the hell would i pay £55 to spend a day downloading it when i can get it on disk for £36 by pre-ordering from smyths.
