Battlefield Hardline Beta First Impressions


TLDR; I finally got my hands on Battlefield Hardline, and although very fun, it is more run of the mill Battlefield and less Payday 2: The Heist.

I love, love, love, love, love Payday 2. The COOP action is great and there are always new glitches and wrinkles when playing the same levels over and over. What I always thought it was missing was the opportunity to be the cops. So I was super excited when Hardline was announced for the ability to be the cops. Now that I have played, it is a little bit of a letdown. Overall the play is exactly like Battlefield 4 in almost every way. The helicopter’s machine guns are not as powerful, but everything else is very similar, especially in the Conquest game mode, Everything has a Cops and Robbers label, but the medals, communications, and spotting are all exactly the same. Everyone still has parachutes for Pete’s sake!

  • Seems a lot like a mod and not a full new product
  • All BF mechanics are here with some different flavors
  • New Game Modes are Exciting
    • Hotwire
    • Heist
    • Hacker
    • Conquest
  • Does not at all compare to Payday 2: The Heist
  • Overall a fun experience
