The Sitdown: Battlefield 1 is Playable, but is that a Good Thing?

Battlefield 1 caught Call of Duty in a time of franchise fatigue. Even though we’re coming off yet another stellar installment of Activision’s shooter, the internet went into a tizzy when it was revealed that this year’s entry, Infinite Warfare, would again be taking things into the future. Conversely, EA is going back further than it ever has with the latest installment to their blockbuster shooter, with Battlefield 1 taking place during the first World War. While we’ll have to wait to get our hands on the latest CoD, Battlefield 1 is already playable. Steve sits down with Kevin to finds out if the game is living up to the hype, if World War I is indeed a good setting for a shooter and if the game has what it takes to top Call of Duty this year.

And for the full details on the Battlefield 1 Alpha, be sure to check out our preview.

The official podcast for HardcoreGamer.com, The Sitdown is an intimate one-on-one conversation about a single game. Generally in the form of a review or preview, the writer who’s been playing the game sits down with our host to discuss it in finer detail. We’ll always choose an interesting, new game, generally before its launch for this briskly informative conversation.

    BF1 will not be a strong or popular game this time around. BF1 is to limited in it’s game play… and seems to be going for “pretty” and that doesn’t improve game play for real Team competitions. Making another “pretty” Run & Gun kid shooter again… will not help BF1 in anyway.
