Battlefield 2042 is an unfulclined experience at the moment and needs a lot of repairs to get back on track.

When Battlefield 2042 works, it works well and can be fun but it sadly feels like this game really should have been delayed again with all of its issues.

Disappointing is the best way to describe Battlefield 2042. It can be fun at times, but also frustrating and downright dull. Its maps are impressive in scale, with weather effects that are a sight to behold. But they’re just too big, filled with vast open spaces that don’t do the game any favours. Mix in a variety of bugs and unfortunate design decisions, and you have the weakest Battlefield game in years. Can it be turned around? Possibly. But whether you’re a fan of the series or not, you’re definitely better off waiting for it to receive some more updates before you jump in.

Battlefield 2042 is a fresh experience for Battlefield franchise fans, and the creators have tried to take a new approach in building different parts of the title, but unfortunately now and at a time when this critique is underway the game is suffering from a lot of problems, both large and small, that will upset many fans.

‎Battlefield 2042 is a good game, capable of offering a fantastic war experience. Despite having great successes, it also has some flaws that tarnish the final result. However, with certain adjustments, the DICE game could once again achieve the success of classic deliveries.‎

Battlefield 2042 changes the franchise formula considerably but brings no real improvements. While it has added flexibility with specialists and the Portal mode, the balance issues, poor maps, technical problems, and missing features keep it from reaching the heights of its predecessors.

Battlefield 2042 makes gutsy changes to a series that needed them and sets a new standard for built-in custom mode support.

There are some neat new toys while Portal delivers the series at its best, but 2042 launches as the weakest Battlefield in some time.

Battlefield 2042's highpoint is its powerful Portal mode, which lets you relive the series' past glories and tweak them to your liking. Its current batch of modes is overstuffed with players and utter chaos, though Hazard Zone scales things down in an interesting, high-stakes way.
