It's a great game, but I would only play it if you have 1 to 3 friends. Bots can fill out the team, and you can issue the bots commands. They hold their own, while of course not being as good as a real human. You definitely need good teamwork and coordination. One of the best co-op experiences I have had.
I'm about halfway through mission 1 (missions are larger than they have ever been) and if you were down for Sniper Elite before, you are down for this. Also got invaded by an enemy human sniper, which was cool, even though it got me killed. Not a big deal since it lets you reload from the point you got invaded.
I haven't played any of the recent Battlefields, and don't play CoD. I did play the BF2042 beta and had a blast. Maybe I'd feel differently if I had those other experiences, but without them, this game was fun.
I'm playing solo on Game Pass, and am enjoying it quite a bit. I have not experienced the bugs personally. The story is bad, the acting is worse, but I enjoy the combat. To me it seems like Gears of War meets Destiny.
The game is really cool, but I wouldn't recommend it if you don't have 2 friends to squad up with. I have never even once attempted it with randos. Your mileage may vary, of course, but it is a brutal game. The world is really fantastic, and it has some of the best audio I've heard in a game.
I've really been enjoying this game. Gathering resources to upgrade your village is extremely slow, although it's likely I'm just not optimizing in the way they want. It's not overly clear in that regard.
