An amusing fact about Battlefield 1’s inception lies in EA’s initial disbelief in the premise that a World War I game could be relevant. Nonetheless, thanks to the insistence of its developer Dice and a reveal trailer that won near universal acclaim, peppered with the odd leak or two in between, seems to have proven the publisher wrong. Well, at least initially, with a jittery multiplayer beta later putting EA on the back foot. Does the final release deliver on the hype or is it destined to join the AAA graveyard? Read our Battlefield 1 review to find out.

The first thing that hits you is how good Battlefield 1 looks. Regardless of your console of choice (or a PC, if that’s your scene) you’re treated to fantastic visuals that rival anything we’ve seen recently, which is no mean feat considering this year has seen Forza Horizon 3 and Gears of War 4 oozing eye candy. While the aforementioned games bring something different to the table thanks to their unique art styles, Battlefield 1 throws out all the stops to merge gritty photorealistic environments with stellar weather effects.
