This Is Not A Review: Battlefield One – They Shall Not Pass

Welcome to This Is Not A Review. In these articles we discuss general impressions, ideas and thoughts on any given game, but as the title implies, it’s not a review. Instead, it’s an exercise in offering a quick recommendation (or dismissal) after spending enough time to grasp the ideas and gameplay of a thing without necessarily playing it from A to Z.

The subject of this installment: Battlefield 1‘s DLC, They Shall Not Pass. Developed by DICE and published by Electronic Arts, it’s available on PS4, XBOX ONE, and PC. The code used for this article was part of a Premium Pass provided by the publisher.

Interview With Wes Platt on… Knee Deep

Prologue Games’ Knee Deep is a twisted tale of treachery, murder, and journalistic intrigue. Although similar, it diverges from Telltale’s tried-and-true formula to provide a stage production-like experience, and interviewer Elijah Beahm enjoyed his journey through the corrupt Florida town of Cypruss Knee for the review. He also got the chance to sit down with the writer behind this wild mystery, Wes Platt, and dug into the mysteries behind the game.

Warning: This interview contains spoilers for the game.
