Zero Punctuation: Battlefield 1

Elvaril:
This was my first Battlefield game because I was really excited about the setting. Was really hoping for some missions as the Central Powers since there was no good or bad side in this war. Instead we got this super short Allied Powers campaign. Consequently this was also my last Battlefield game.

If you bought Battlefield for the singleplayer, you did something wrong to begin with.
But honestly, did anyone really expect anything beyond "it's actually just another shooter with a different coat of paint"? I sure didn't.

If you'd played Battlefield 1942, you'd know there is a standard another historical Battlefield could at the very least match, which would make it a lot better than the most recent Battlefields, but yeah... nah. They didn't even really go for that either.

I bought it for both single player and multiplayer, but only because WWI is a time period I really like. I've never played any Battlefield before so this was going to be a potential jumping off point to get me into the series as I do generally tend to enjoy fps games. Campaign didn't sell me, so I'll just enjoy the multiplayer for a while then move back to other fps series I enjoy more.

I was kinda hoping this would be worth a try for the campaign. Hell, I enjoy the average CoD campaign despite basically being video game version of an action film, because it does it well. The last battlefield game I tried was Bad Company 2 and it didn't exactly win me over. Instead, I kept thinking "This feels suspiciously like someone at EA saw CoD:MW2 and decided they needed to make the same game but with just enough changes not to get sued".

So yeah, it looks like lack of a good campaign means yet another game I don't have to bother with.

I will bet a tenner for the Airlock making a brilliant recovery in the last ten to take it into overtime.

Oh, and You Bastards!

To be completely fair it's relatively historically accurate that a lot of the campaigns in WW1 had a bad case of "what the f*** happened to the backup" -- the first time the Germans used Chlorine Gas for instance they put a 4 mile hole in the French line and followed up with two tenths of bugger all.
