As large as the hoth map is, it is probably smaller than the smallest map in BF42 and BFV.
Not at all. Its about the same size as the medium maps in both games. Being far bigger than Berlin and Stalingrad in BF1942.
Being a longtime player of the Battlefield series, I love open maps. But since battlefront I'm starting to like its style of maps alot better. The action is frantic.
True though, I love the big maps the best I guess. Such as Geonosis and Dune Sea. Still though, Mos Eisley and any other map for that matter doesnt have to be a frag fest if you find a good server.
