Review: Battlefield Hardline on Xbox One

Battlefield swerves away from the military to deliver fans of Xbox One a cops and robbers fantasy.

How frequent should multiplayer shooters see releases? Call of Duty enjoys a yearly launch cycle headed by three separate studios (and a bunch of additional collaborating studios). Some argue higher frequency of releases leads to stagnation. Some resent the lack of innovation, and more and more of us are refusing to purchase annual franchised game releases that fail to innovate.

Sections of the community are concerned that Visceral's Battlefield Hardline could represent the same for the Battlefield franchise. Just how far does it go to differentiate itself from Battlefield 4, which launched just 18 months ago?

Battlefield's single player takes a step in the right direction

Starting with the single player campaign, I feel as though Battlefield Hardline missed an opportunity to do something special, but the effort is appreciable. Visceral Games are known for Dead Space, a high-class horror game with a robust approach to storytelling. While Hardline certainly has issues it is a lot more appealing than Battlefield 4's 'dudebro' semper-fi snooze fest.

You play as Detective Nick Mendoza, a rookie cop trying to play by the rules in a seedy world of corruption, drugs and gang violence. The first few chapters take place in retrospect, as the beginning presents Nick slapped in irons and sent on his way to prison, taunted by a unlikable but wonderfully rendered prison guard. I shall not spoil the plot, but its far off modern crime dramas like The Wire or Breaking Bad. There's some interesting Michael Bay-like set pieces with explosions and shoot-outs, but the opportunity for thrilling plot twists and gritty character development has been widely missed.

That said, I did find myself caring about the plight of Nick Mendoza, Tyson, and the other characters. The Frostbite engine renders the virtual actors incredibly, delivering nuance and emotion other games often fail to impart. The episodic nature of the campaign lends itself well to future episodes via DLC, and the characters were interesting enough to leave me interested in a continuation.

What about gameplay? Visceral are a tad braver when it comes to new features in the campaign, although it still feels like a mod of Battlefield 4 and as such, some features work better than others. Nick can deploy a Batman: Arkham-like detective device, which allows you to spot evidence to help build your case, although these case files amount to collectables rather than a gameplay mechanic. Nick's device also allows him to tag enemies and follow heat signatures through walls, helping you to take advantage of the game's clunky stealth mechanics.

When crouching, Nick can sneak up on enemies and make them freeze, and subsequently arrest them, removing them from combat. It is a real effort to make Hardline play differently from 4, but as mentioned earlier, the stealth system is not on par with games dedicated to that style of play. Enemies have shockingly bad peripheral vision, laughably bad, and the arrest mechanics trivialises difficulty even on veteran mode.

Some enemies carry bonuses for being arrested for carrying outstanding warrants. It is a nice touch. However, sadly I feel that it simply incentivises playing in the most monotonous way possible - that being skulking around, luring enemies by throwing bullet cases and then arresting them, over, and over, and over. Every enemy reacts in the same way to being held up, and it can quickly become a grind.

Even as a shooter, Hardline feels conservative. There are no grenades or explosives, minimal environmental destruction (save for intentional set pieces), and there's a general lack of flavour across the board. I wish they'd have treated the single player with a little more compassion, perhaps adding more police-themed mechanics or scenarios. It all felt a tad unambitious, intrepid almost. It's almost as if Visceral / EA were willfully reluctant to change the formula.

Hardline sports a solid, but familiar multiplayer

While I was a little disappointed in Visceral's efforts on the single player side of things, it was not entirely unexpected. People pick up these games for the multiplayer component and judge it accordingly. So, on to the question: is Battlefield Hardline a full-price BF4 map pack? Alternatively, a different beast entirely?

It would be a lie to say BF:H plays perfectly like BF4. It is familiar for sure, but there are systemic differences that force you to reconsider your play style. Battles are on a smaller scale, there are no jets or tanks, and helicopters are limited to 1 per team, lacking the firepower of their BF4 counterparts. Weapons and artillery are on the domestic end, with rocket launchers and LMGs limited to field pickups rather than being a load out option. The result is fewer deaths by vehicles, fewer campers, and more close quarters combat in pockets of concentrated small-scale warfare. If you prefer Battlefield 4's smaller scale maps and game modes, you'll find a lot to appreciate about Hardline.

Gameplay modes take a cue from the game's theme, although classic modes like Conquest have made a return owing to fan outcry during beta.

  • Heist is an attack/defend type style that doesn't really go further than being a capture the flag variant. Robbers are tasked with invading a vault, planting C4 to (sadly specific) walls or floors, drilling open the vault, and then returning two briefcases to a collection point on the map. The vault invasion - the criminal part of the fantasy - is over before you can blink. Robbers typically spawn closer to the vault then the cops, making it more a case of flavour than gameplay mechanics, which is a shame. The briefcases can be picked up by a robber instantly but take a relatively long time to be re-captured by a cop, resulting in some gloriously chaotic skirmishes. The mode emphasises teamwork, as an individual police player cops will be too vulnerable to retrieve the briefcase back to the vault. Organised robbers can utilise zip wires and vehicle drops to take the prize back to base extremely quickly, which can result in dissatisfying short battles. For the most part, Heist is a solid gameplay mode, but the cops and robbers fantasy Visceral are gunning for comes across as relatively artificial here.
  • Blood Money is perhaps my favourite game mode and is another capture the flag variant. Maps load with a pile of money in the centre, and it is both team's job to retrieve it and then take it back to their home base. The first team to hit 150 units wins. Gathering cash from the pile can take a relatively long time. As such, you have the option to leave early with what you've been able to pick up, or risk death by remaining until your pack is full. It creates a tense risk vs. reward scenario I have not really experienced in other games. Speaking of risk - you can ramp it up by taking money directly from your enemies' camp. This thievery reduces their tickets and, should you deposit the cash, increases your own. You also have the option to steal cash from downed players. There's much potential for variety in this mode, do you go to the cash pile? Simply camp other players? Alternatively, go to your enemies' cash pile? Setting up escape routes with zip wires, grappling hooks, etc. I think it'd be cool if the win clause were higher, games in this mode can often be a tad on the short side, but it is much fun nonetheless.

  • Hotwire While I enjoy this style, I do not think it is particularly well thought out. Hotwire is similar to Conquest, which has players control nodes in order to deplete the enemy teams spawn tickets. However, the nodes are vehicles that need to be driven above a certain speed to be considered captured. Playing with my friends, I've had a ridiculous amount of fun setting up road blocks using other vehicles, sending enemy cars sky-high with C4 charges, and gunning people down in an attack chopper. The problem is, doing the fun stuff in this game mode can often result in a loss. To win in Hotwire, you essentially have to grab a car and drive around in a circle, actively avoiding confrontation. Often, nobody wants to be the one to do the driving. I've been in a game where a dude has driven a car around in a circle in a parking lot throughout a match's 10-20 minute duration, I cannot imagine how mind numbingly boring that must be. No matter how proficient my squad is at destroying enemy vehicles, if nobody is willing to be the one to do the monotonous circuit racing with Frostbite's contemptuous vehicle handling, then victory be damned.
  • Crosshair is a highly competitive 5v5 mode that removes you from the game upon death. One player spawns with golden guns and is supposed to be escorted to safety by the team playing cops, and it is the criminal's job to wipe the VIP from existence. It is a fairly standard gameplay type and doesn't do anything to challenge the formula, but is hard to fault. This game style is a "does what it says on the tin" sort of deal.
  • Rescue is similar to the above, in the sense that there's no respawns. Rescue takes a cue from Counter Strike's Hostage Rescue mode. Police players are tasked to extract hostages who are guarded by criminal players. The grappling hook can make this way interesting, as well as the various traps and gadgets you are afforded to keep players away. The competitive modes have significant potential for tactical play in dedicated teams, but as you'd expect, they can be frustrating if you play as recklessly as I do.
  • Beyond these new modes, you also have the standard Battlefield staples of Team Deathmatch and Conquest.

Gameplay wise, generally, Battlefield Hardline is rather good. While the new gadgets are fun to use and quite varied in their application, the advertised zip wire and grappling hook have pretty limited functionality. More often than not will get you killed if you attempt to use them in the frenetic primary game modes. The staple gadgets like C4 and trip mines make their way across, as well as Battlefield's vast array of weapons and accessory unlocks. Every gun I've used boasts individual pros and cons, but all handle well as Battlefield fans would expect. Hardline is complimented with a beefy array of maps reliable game modes offer good variety and, well, every aspect of the game is as it should be, but within lies the problem for me.

Hardline multiplayer is indeed a robust offering, it's Battlefield. It just doesn't do enough, in my view, to justify the jump from Battlefield 4. The removal of military hardware permeates through the entire game, creating a diluted experience. What Hardline does do, is make me want to jump back into a tank and level skyscrapers in Battlefield 4 again.

Hardline is good, but won't arrest everyone

For more casual fans like myself, you may feel a pang of disappointment throwing £45 on this, particularly considering Battlefield 4 is still expected to get fresh maps in the future. It simply doesn't do enough to differentiate itself from Battlefield 4. The things it did do were to impede things I like most about Battlefield, like environmental destruction and unbridled firepower. Those epic Battlefield moments still come, but are muted in comparison to its older brother, whose 5th instalment announcement will likely overshadow Hardline's existence entirely.

Battlefield Hardline is solid though. It has an engaging single player component, the server issues that plagued Battlefield 4's launch are thankfully absent, and the bugs are not nearly as prevalent. More ardent Battlefield fans are looking for something to tide them over while waiting for Battlefield 5, I think there's more than enough content on offer to be satisfied in the interim.

Battlefield Hardline is available now on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4 and PC.

  • really enjoyed the trial of this game, would love to get to experience the rest of the gameplay
  • It was pretty fun. The price tag of game and premium is getting a bit much. Think i'll stick with BF4.
  • One thing that makes me love Hardline is the breaking away from the usual military COD/BF war. This gave me a different taste to a whole new level. I love drug wars and love making arrests. Wanna be a corrupt cop one day with a mountain house full of gold :)
  • Hardline is nice, black ops 3 confirmed...
  • Only because Gabe doesn't own the series.
  • I watched the video of the first level and seems to be pretty good.

  • Nice review.   
  • Enjoyed what I played of the MP beta.
  • Does anyone else feel that with this version of Battlefield, there's a new door opening for many possibilities for a future release. It's a different viewpoint but it seems that there's more to Visceral Game's madness.
  • Played the beta and I agree with your review of the multiplayer. Would love to check out the campaign.

  • Battlefield series games are always good..
  • Good review and giveaway!!!
  • Pretty Impressive game. But, I Don't have an Xbox One.

  • Nice, but too safe. No risks were taken.

  • Woot! Winning games is good!
  • This should have been given away with the weekend twitch stream.. two chances to win a free game in one week!! BF4 seem to be a solid offering though.
  • Checking in.
  • Whoooo!!! Comment. Hopefully I win. I have been loving battlefield 4
  • Nice Review, should definityl check this game out! :)
  • Great review..........would be nice to win
  • I see, make me create an account so i can try to win a copy eh?  Maybe i'll leave more comments now.
  • I usually skip Battlefield because the single-player is usually lacking/generic.  But I might have to try out this fresh approach.
  • Great review!
  • The demo/first episode was excellent.  
  • Excellent, detailed review. I loved the multiplayer on the EA access trial. Not sure why many people are adverse to the switch from soldiers to cops
  • Idk if this review gave hardline justice as far as how the intricacies allow for strategic gameplay. He may be right but whats missing?
  • Thanks for the in depth review! I've been on the fence about tho game for a year!
  • I like that they are trying different things with the brand.
  • I would've bought Hardline but with just buying battlefield 4 for $25 with all the dlc, it just didn't make sense. But a free copy would be nice!!
  • *reaches out hands and begs for a copy*
  • Please please pleeeeeaaassseee im poe
  • I would love to play this game! It looks awesome... if anyone wants to play some xbox look for me gt: CruciFried
  • I know i'd sure like to win
  • It would totally make me a happy fat Canadian horrorpunk to win that copy!
  • Woop woop! Me please!
  • At least there was an effort to have a good SP campaign. I don't have the reflexes for MP gaming, so I mourn the shift in focus to MP for shooters.
  • The review you have put up is one I would like to say is spot on. The game, in my opinion, is a welcome change in the battlefield franchise.
  • I would love to try this game out. Seems like the launch was a whole lot better than Battlefield 4.
  • This looks pretty sweet. Interesting break
  • Played the beta a bit, enjoyed it. Broke my finger, now no gaming for me. Cast comes off Tuesday..this sure would be a nice welcome back to gaming! :)
  • Not a bad game, and nice review. I think I still have some free hours with this one left, also I reckon it will be on EA Access in 6 months. Got my eye out for Battlefront... Not that I am the world's biggest Star Wars, I just fancy a change.
  • I personally enjoyed the demo of this game as well as my son who would hardly let me play as much as I would have liked:)
  • You won dude! Check your PMs. :)
  • Played the beta, it was fun.
  • Still has abysmal hit reg just like bf4
  • Hopefully the single player campaign is longer than normal. It seems to be a good storyline that would be suited to an RPG style game in terms of making it open world and side missions etc. Imagine that, choose a side and build a career :)
  • I loved the beta, and I would play it again!
  • Thanks for the review. Played beta on PC. Would love to play on my Xbone!
  • Been thinking about picking this up, winning it would be even better
  • Decent BF game.  I've enjoyed what little bit I've played of it. 
  • This game is making me want to consider getting back into Battlefield again after solidly being in the COD camp. I just really enjoy the cops and robbers aspect.
  • Great review, I was kind of on the fence about getting this game but I'll give the single-player a try after I trade in a few games.
  • I might do the same. But it wouldn't be for awhile. =/
  • This looks like a nice game!  
  • I hope that Dice would consider making a Western, but this will do for now.
  • That could be awesome!
  • I played the beta for this a bit and found it fun, but haven't had the money to spend on it. I really enjoyed the review, it makes me more positive about the game despite my reservations from BF4 issues. Hopefully I can win the giveaway! But I won't start counting my chickens haha.
  • Played the beta and had a good time.
  • I think 1 or 2 COD or Battlefield even AC titles a year is too much. I want to see 18-24months or more
  • I liked BF4 but waiting on a great deal, such as free hint, hint.
  • Alright
  • The trial is fun and almost got me hooked. Still have some time left to get me to the point were I will buy
  • *insert creative comment here*...although I'm here just for the giveaway :D
  • Played the beta, the Heist mode was cool, I'm not sure if it's as well done as others.  Overall a solid game.
  • This review has somewhat piqued my interest for this game. I just saw "Battlefield" and shook my head. But the cops and robbers thing seems like it might be fun. I'll bite!
  • I am here to try my luck lol. Waiting this game to go on sale, too many backlogs anyway.
  • Cool game, played the beta, would love a free copy!
  • In for a free copy! Thanks WC!
  • played bf4. had fun. want more fun= want bfh
  • BF4 was quite a bit of fun so id love to pick this up sometime
  • I really enjoyed the beta hope to win the contest
  • I test the game with EAPass.. I liked too much!!
  • I was a little trepidatious about pulling the trigger on buying this, as I wasn't particularly impressed with BF4. Though it sounds good, it doesn't sound like a real sequel, more of an update. For those who've played both, does it really "feel" different from BF4?
  • Gonna be awesome
  • interested to try this out..
  • Love battlefield and I think the hl multiplayer has something different to the bf4. Better on different ways
  • Just got EA Access last night.. I'm going to try the trail out this weekend. I'm sure I'll like it so I hope that physical copy will be on it's way!
  • Nice review! Looking forward to Preview/Review of the new Batman game coming in June
  • Nice review. I will wait to see it I win before I purchase it :) Good luck and congrats to the winner.
  • I tried it during the EA access trial period, it was interesting.
  • Loved the beta. Can't wait to get this and try the campaign.
  • Played the beta, but still not sold on this game. Loved all the other battlefields before it though.
  • The game looks good but nothing much to differentiate itself from its predecessors. Great thing is it's Cross-Platform. Good review by @MSFTY, the new guy.
  • Free is good.
  • Bad Company 2 was my favourite game in the franchise, but this looks promising.
  • Didn't get to play the beta - was always offline when I got the chance :( Would love the opportunity to play a copy from Windows Central though :D
  • I've never been swayed to move from COD but played the demo and thought it was rather good! A free copy to see what full access provides would be rather splendid don't you know! What! What!
  • Watched a couple people stream Battlefield Hardline. It looks like an extremely fun game to play with friends.
  • I rather enjoyed the beta when it was out, and would be interested in trying the full game.  
  • Had a really good time with the Aloha and Beta versions, good game but BF4 is the winner, at least for me
  • I am still unsure on this game. I liked all of the other Battlefields and I love the Dead Space games but I'm not sure about police vs. criminals as opposed to country vs country. Either way, a free copy would be wicked awesome. Thanks
  • Looks awesome this game. Good to see it take a new direction
  • Fine review sir! I enjoyed the trial, but winning a copy would be Sofa Driving-tastic!!
  • Great review. I would like to get a copy.
  • I wish they would have done a True Crimes/GTA like thing for single player.
  • join for the giveaway!
  • Nice review and thanks for the giveaway.
  • Would be an awesome birthday present for me ;3
  • Wish I had more disposable income to buy all the games I want for Xbox One.
  • I want BFH!
  • I usually love the single-player campaigns in these realistic FPS games, but I am terrible at the multiplayer. So I never end up buying them because I'd have to play the SP 10 times to get the same $60 value I get from games like Far Cry, Assassin's Creed, Dragon Age, etc. BF: Hardline's story definitely has me intrigued. So winning an "unopened" copy would be awesome.
  • I've been seeing it in online streams and it looks really awesome...Cant wait to play it on my Xbox !
  • It looks surprisingly fun (completely different from what the series was!)
  • That was a good review. I'll give it a try.
  • Hi!
  • Great Giveaway. Thanks for this chance. Good luck all.
  • It's definitely a new thing for the franchise, but I still prefer BF4. I wouldn't mind a free copy, though... :P
  • Having one helicopter per team reminds me of Battlefield: Bad Company 2...except for tanks still not being there. Overall I enjoyed the beta but some features of battlefield, like LMG loadouts, not being in this game do turn me away from it. I love laying down on the trigger!!!!
  • Played the Beta, Really excited to get a copy of this game one day...
  • :-)
  • I love the idea of something different. Just not sure if this is the right 'different' Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Battlefield is amazing!
  • Hope I can win so I can try the game
  • I've stayed away from this series since the original, but this looks pretty good. With that review I might buy it off craigslist or something
  • This looks like an awesome game. I'd love to play it.
  • Nice, thanks win central
  • Cool - Sign me up.
  • My fps of choice have been World of Tanks for the last year at least. Might have to try out good old Battlefield once again.
  • I too played the beta. Love the Battlefield 4 multiplayer, (favorite right now). The Hardline expansion seems too add some to it. Hoping the single player is worth the wait and hype. A free copy would make my sons day, and mine. Thanks for everything guys. Your site is invaluable for me as a Windows Phone user.
  • I definitely prefer the Battlefield games over COD can't wait to try this one out
  • I haven't played any Battlefields but I'm very interested in this one.
  • I heard it would be too much like CoD and moves to far away from the BF formula. However it looks like there are some fun modes
  • I was a huge fan of Battlefield 4 and I look forward to playing Battlefield Hardline.
  • Thanks for the review. I have been really intrigued by Battlefield, I've never played one before and something about this version keeps grabbing me. Might have to try it out. I was hoping the review would push me in either direction but still on the fence.
  • Its amazing
  • I enjoyed the trial, it felt quite different to usual shooters. Would love a copy!
  • The only thing I dont like about hardline is the weapon customization. 4 was pretty simple. Hardlines feels uncoordinated or something. I customize outside the games only now.
  • Awesome multiplayer game!!!
  • I'll gladly take that BF:HL copy off your hands.
  • I want to win
  • Sounds like a good multiplayer game
  • Interesting for me since I prefer single player.
  • I really enjoyed the beta! Good graphics and such a good game generally! I would be so thankful if I won this game! #crossingfingers
  • Seems like a good game. Enjoyed the beta.
  • I'm really excited for the Crime Drama feel of the game. It's a welcome change (in my opinion) from the war war war all the time war games of late
  • It was a good attempt by them, for sure.
  • I would realm like to win
  • At least the multiplayer launch went smoothly this time, from what I've heard! 
  • Okay, folks, go ahead and stop commenting. I won.    (not really)
  • The trial was really fun. It would be nice to experience the full game. I am really impressed with their approach to breathe life into a dying brand.
  • Thanks for review, ir would be awesom to own it!?
  • I'd love a copy. Should have got a free for owning BF4 from day 1. But I'll take it this way, too;)
  • I played the demo on Xbox One. Hotwire mode is awesome because it gives the stale conquest mode a cool new twist. Heist is awesome as well, especially on the bankjob map.
  • I bet this game would be fun for free =)
  • hope to win
  •  editing to add some text. I guess just putting a single emoticon results in an empty comment. look into fixing that! :)   edit again: seems like the thumbs up emoticon just shows up blank regardless.
  • Game me
  • Damn, I had missed the beta, should I buy it?
  • Xm
  • Yay!
  • I wish they would have kept the bigger maps. This is like GTA and COD put together and I prefer the truer military experience.
  • This is a nice and decent review! Thanks for doing this giveaway!
  • When will dice do another BF2142? That game sucked away so much of my time and I really enjoyed it the most out of all the BF games.
  • Good review.  I didn't have a chance to play the beta and I was tempted when it was on sale at Best Buy for $40 recently.  Still I have a solid backlog and I just don't think I would play this anytime soon.  Maybe one day down the line in a digital sale.  Good luck to everyone (but mostly me) for the contest!
  • Solid review of the game...
  • I have been watching so many videos of this game. I wish I could afford it, would love to win :)
  • Never won a Paper in life Hopes High :D
  • Great review!  I'm definitely looking forward to this one.  Good luck everyone!
  • This game is amazing
  • I love this game...:-)
  • I've played the beta, would love to whin this game :)  
  • sweet
  • I would really love a copy of the game for XBone! Good luck to all!
  • I loved the beta. I'm too low on cash to be dropping $60 for a game at the moment.
  • Definitely down to win a copy!  I didn't like the multiplayer, but that campaign looks awesome!
  • This game isn't bad, but its missing alot of stuff!
    1. Destruction
    2. Gun/Character camos
    3. Weapon customizing
    4. Lack of guns
    5. Lack of maps, or few good ones.
    And more things im sure but can't think of. The only people who should make Battlefield is Dice. The game over all is still fun but they need to fix those issues with premium or this is a fail of a game.
