Finished the Battlefield V campaign. Skipped the last act as that was a) added after launch, b) doesn't have an achievement attached to it and c) is probably as bad/meh as the others.

So I already mentioned how the first act is nothing but stealth sections... without any kind of stealth weapons.

Now the second act is.... drum roll..... nothing but stealth! But at least this time you have a method of taking out soldiers from a distance with throwing knives. And only a few meters into the first mission you can find an obvious placed silenced pistol.
Still, it's not very fun. Nazis can spot you incredibly fast. Just pop your head out from the side a tree for a fraction of a second and a guard will immediately notice something and investigate. Did I mention that the chapter plays at night? And everything is covered in snow? While your outfit is not exactly white, it would still be pretty hard to notice a dark outfit at night right next to a dark tree.
The worst thing about this whole thing is, you can basically just sprint through everything. Probably not on the hardest difficulty but once you're noticed there is no point in fighting everybody, especially when they're calling reinforcements. Never died once by just running through and there's usually a checkpoint or cutscene right after an enemy encampment.

Lastly there's act three. A lot better than the first two but they still had the balls to include a forced stealth section (and an optional stealth level). So around 70% of the whole campaign is about stealth. In a Battlefield game... what were they thinking?
Here I noticed something that I would usually call a glitch but happened more than once and I don't think it would happen in MP so I guess it's a campaign exclusive. Enemies on mounted machine guns can't be headshotted. I was standing right next to one and hit him ~10 times right in the head and nothing happened. (Also got video evidence of that one).

All in all I finished the campaign (without the added act) in 4 hours. And that is with a lot of retries in act 1 that went as far as watching a youtube video how to get past a certain point.

Truly disgusting campaign and if it wasn't for the MP which might be a little disappointing but overall still pretty good I would've given the game a 4/10.
Battlefield V gets a 6/10 from me. Easily the worst Battlefield game every created and I played every single one of them (including stuff like BF:Heroes).
