A review of Battlefield Hardline (Beta)
Despite the numerous issues with battlefield 4 I really enjoyed the game. When I logged on to my PS4 and saw that I could try the new battlefield game in beta access, I was excited. The game took more than two hours to download so I was hoping it would be good. I was surprised to see that the game was about cops and robbers, instead of soldiers, war, and battles that the rest of the franchise had been about. I played the Beta version for a couple of minutes and then decided that it was just too bad, and that I should play Battlefield 4 instead. Instead of driving in an M1 Abrams battle tank, I can now drive in civilian sedan and steal money. Overall the action was just not there for me and I deleted the game. You do not have to listen to my opinion, you should try the game yourself, but I think that the game is definitely not as cool as previous games in the franchise.

BattleField HardLine Release Date 10/21/2014 check out the E3 Live very soon starting on monday june 9th.
I tried Beta....
It was awesome. I haven't liked a BF game a lot since Bad Company 2. Battlefield 3 was meh, and 4 was just a re skinned 3 with some scripted destructibility, with a lot of focus on cash shop items and overpowered vehicles (tanks). I love Hardline though. I really like the cops and robbers scenario, and the smaller emphasis on vehicle combat, more on the run and gun. There is more mobility through the maps with zip lines and grappling hooks. The maps are a more comfortable size, no more spending 30 minutes running to a location only to die and respawn having to do it all over again (I was REALLY bad at 3 and 4 (mostly 4)). The game just felt good though. even the small stuff such as the in game dialogue and the announcers lines. I am eagerly awaiting Hardline, and is the first BF game that I have actually pre-ordered. And now for some info, I spent more time in the Hardline beta then I have in BF4. I have more kills, am a Higher level, and enjoyed this ONE map over the entire complete(?) BF4 experience.
I know im gunna get a lot of Heat for this review but if you like Call Of Duty you will like Battlefield Hardline. If you Like Battlefield 3 and 4 and hate Call of Duty you will probably hate Battlefield Hardline. hahha Ill start off with that. This review is gunna be 90% Cons so here we go.. 60 bucks not worth it 30 bucks ok I wouldnt be as mad so if u do want it might as well wait. Mostly im talking about online I started the Story but I think im trading this game in tomorrow. Re-Spawning isnt good, Map size is way to small its not battlefield, Weapon Range is Garbage, The Graphics is totally Call of Duty/ GTA, Weapon Customizing is Garbage, Everything you did love about Battlefield is gone thanks a lot DICE for going Call of Duty on your loyal fans. Thank God I didnt get Premium!!! Im so so ANGERY
Not impressed in the least bit
I've been playing battlefield for a long time, and this is NOT battlefield. First time even joining a server, I thought I was playing Counter strike. The spawning is horrible. The heist game type could've been done better, Conquest points are way to close, and the overall game play is just horrible. It almost feels like I'm playing Call of duty with vehicles. The only redeeming factors to this game are the weapon unlocks and using cash to unlock the guns you want and the Cops and robbers theme was a good idea. I will not be recommending this game to anyone and I will be returning the game for a refund. Especially since this game is NOT worth 70 bucks for the deluxe addition, let a one 60 for the game. I'm also glad I did not get the premium pack for this game.
Amazing MP Decent SP
This game had me a skeptic at first, because i come from the age of BFBC, BFBC2, BF3, & BF4 and with all of the Military games over Washing The Gaming Industry i was both somewhat a skeptic and a believer that this game would be something amazing, So i gave it a try at E3 2014 and it was ok didn't like that there were LMGs in game because IRL you don't see Cops and Criminals running around with LMGs so in the recent beta they fixed all of that and now the game actually plays much better than it used it and when it launched it didn't break at all unlike BF4, Honestly This is the Most Fun I've Had since BFBC2 and BF3 Put together The SP Story is Great , One Note i would like to add is that there are a lot of dumb AI in the SP Campaign but Theres also a lot Of Cool Easter Eggs from the Creators of this game (Visceral Games/DICELA) And i have to say over all this game is amazing You should give it A Try Also Theres A ton of Replay value here and last but not least the MP is really good as far as CQC and More Infantry focused maps but also retain that Battlefeel
Would be a lot better if MP maps weren't awful
This is probably the better of the battlefield games since BC 2, what kills the game is the MP maps. It is heavily unbalanced and favors the snipers A LOT. If you love to up close with a shotgun, well forget it, you'll be sniped. AR and Carbine has some chance, but the sniper is mostly going to be gunning you down a lot more that you will get them. If the season pass have maps that are balanced for everyone, then it might be a good game, but if the developers didn't see how unfair that maps are at the end of development, don't count on it. SP is better than the two previous entries, but this is battlefield, you're buying it for the wrong reason if you're looking forward to SP.
The best thing about fps games is the lasting appeal. Best games for your money when it comes to hours of use.
Better than Expected
I debated about getting this game because I was unsure how this would compare to previous Battlefield games, big mistake. This game was never meant to be like previous battlefields hence the name "Hardline". If they wanted to make another standard Battlefield game they would have but they didn't and I'm super satisfied with this game. PLEASE DON"T COMPARE instead go back and play previous Battlefields if thats the type of Battlefield you prefer you can't get upset at them for not making a game they never intended to make. They intended to make Hardline just like Call of Duty made Black Ops, Advanced Warfare, etc. . Give it a shot and remember they didn't work hard on this game for us to compare it to the previous version but to introduce a fresh new idea from THEIR perspective and vision of a good cops and robber's game.
Basically a re-skinned BF4
So, I think I wrote a review the other day for this game, and i gave it like a 10 because when I played the beta, it was so fun!! But now I bought the actual game? It's just another BF4 with cops and robbers theme. Yep, just like everyone said it was, but I was going off off the beta, and no the full release. The levels you played in the beta were great, they gave you the feel of cops and robbers, but the levels in the full release are basically as big as BF4, which isn't good. Not for cops and robbers, anyway. I bought the game yesterday, and I am returning it today for Advanced Warfare probably so I can play with my cousin.
