        I'm in love with it. I'm already over half the time I played BF since release. Will probably garner at least a hundred hours or more

        I don't like it nearly as much as BF4, but it's still fun. Kinda wish I could trade it in for Titanfall 2 though.

        I dunno, aside from the usual glitches and EA hate, this is the first Battlefield I actually want to play since Bad Company

        I think it's the bomb. Like it way more than BF4 and I love BF4

        I think it needs a serious balance and bug patch before I'll really start to enjoy it more. I want to like it but there's too many cheap deaths and bugs to make me like it. I liked BF4 more at launch than this one. And that one crashed out on Dawnbreaker on the 360 100% of the time.
