Battlefield 2042 may very well have been this year’s most anticipated game — especially over on the PC frontline. Next to the likes of Call of Duty: Vanguard and other acclaimed stakeholders in the war genre, it was perhaps one of the biggest drops of 2021. But unfortunately, despite its immense popularity on a global scale, its following hasn’t been able to pry the latest instalment out of the doghouse after its disastrous launch.
In a single day, Battlefield 2042 has managed to accumulate quite the rap sheet of complaints, all of which have bogged the game down in the Steam charts and branded it as a critical failure, made up of “mostly negative” reviews. As of this moment, sadly, it has become one of the top ten worst reviewed games of all time, sinking just a smidgen lower than Rollercoaster Tycoon World. And, to be fair, that kind of speaks volumes alone.
Between bugs and DICE’s rash decisions to banish beloved ingredients, Battlefield 2042 has churned out quite the disappointing banquet. And it’s because of the faults that are littered like bullet confetti, that fans have been worryingly quick to slam the game on review boards. And if you thought the Steam rating was bad — then wait ’til you get a load of Google and other platforms.
“1.9, you say?”
As well as the game sitting miserably on Steam’s top ten worst reviewed games of all time, it’s also clutching on to a dire 1.9 rating over on Google, making it one of the worst in the series to date. And that’s just two of the many acclaimed stages from the stack that have slandered the chapter.
It goes without saying that players aren’t exactly thrilled by the latest addition to the Battlefield timeline. Some, as expected, are even choosing to boycot the game altogether, until it finally has its bugs fixed. And to be fair, that’s perfectly understandable, considering the state it’s currently in.
