I remember someone saying last week it wasn't worth it even for free. I wonder if the prime prerequisite alters their opinion any.
It does not And I own the game.. so... that's why I said that heh. I played it and I would say it isn't worth to play it, at all. MP is totally borked. When I last played it I was racking 100+ kill streaks in 1 match just by playing a tank .... and the SP is more like a nightmarish parody of World War 1.
And I played BF5 as well and include that in the "not even worth it for free" statement.
Wow, that's pretty harsh. BF1 was okay, BFV is at least a gorgeous video card test, with pretty good gameplay, and some interesting building systems. I REALLY hope some version of the BFV building system shows up in BF2042, it's a great addition to the series. The biggest drawback to any BF game is having stacked teams and/or clueless players, which had to be the case if you went 100+ in a tank in either game.
BF4 is still the most fun, but it seems excessive to say that's it's not even worth it to try these two other BF games for free, if you have Prime already, hehe.
The problem is the moment even 3-4 good players are in 1 team on 1 side the other side empties, it's how every game ends, and to this day no server I tried has proper forceful auto-balance (pushing you out of squads) it only transfers squads, which makes this even worse actually because now the OTHER side empties as well ;p BF4 has this fully fixed, thankfully and is by far the best MP shooter you can even play currently. Sure you get tons of pros but also tons of people who just casually play it for fun.
To be fair, I only played BF5 during the demo so if it changed I dunno about that. I just played it and decided it was not fun, not as fun, should I say, compared to BF4 or Bad Company 2 (which I still think are the best of the battlefield games) and at least the SP of BF5 is even worse than BF1
But free is free, and obviously if you have never played either and you have Prime this is a good deal for you.
