This free Battlefield game comes with two complimentary kneejerk responses. “Hey, this is nothing like proper grown-up Battlefield!” is one of them. “Cartoon? Team Fortress 2 is cartoon, therefore grumble-mumble!” is the other. Neither are actually relevant, because this is very much its own game, with its own innate delights, peculiar slow pace, poorly-executed class mechanic, and weird micro-transaction married to level advancement persistence.
The game disappointed me overall, because its an awkward mix of really genuinely fun stuff, and not-quite-there design. But then it’s also completely free, so you can judge for yourself.
