Bought Battlefield V in a recent sale. Although it delivers the standard Battlefield weight and momentum, it's surprising how incomplete the game feels. The problems I'm routinely encountering are the kind of things you might excuse at launch - missing stats, bugged-out results screens, halted unlock progress - but not now, seven months after release. Still, no other first-person shooter gives you the sense that you're a lumbering mass struggling with their weapon (in this case a STEN sub-machine gun). That you have to fight against the controls and aiming profile somewhat is half the appeal - it gives the game a terrifying sense of reality.
