    Despite a traditionally rocky launch, the latest Battlefield proves itself one of the best in the series. Tell Edwin Starr we found out what war is good for. [Issue#9, p.72]

    An odd, but admirably experimental AAA game, which offers plenty of epic scale action at launch but whose true worth will probably only be revealed in the months to come.

    While the repetition and lack of content cooled my enthusiasm a bit, I am excited to see where DICE can take Battlefield 2042 from here — if current industry trends hold, I’m confident this will be a strong addition to my already-full shooter rotation after a few months of additions and updates.

    Battlefield 2042 feels like it could become a cool game, but it’s tantalizingly out of reach today. There’s enough promise with the satisfying-when-it-works gunplay, large-scale chaos (that’s starting to feel more controlled over time), and fantastic legacy Battlefield content in Portal that I’ll stick around for a bit. It didn’t have to be this way, though.

    Battlefield 2042 is disjointed and incomplete at launch, but it's impossible to deny it still has that magic spark that made past entries thrive. There aren't enough maps and one too many bugs and glitches get in the way of the fun. However, with the excellent Portal mode to bolster it, Battlefield 2042 does just enough to get us on board. While we wish so many things were better, nothing else does it quite like Battlefield.

    Battlefield 2042 is technically an unfinished game that just has dozens of problems on both visual and technical levels. It poses some questionable gameplay changes, some good, some bad, but it still presents itself as a dash of fresh air with great modes like Portal and Hazard Zone. Sadly, it has so many problems on mentioned levels, with really disappointing “bloom” during shooting, that it poses itself as a pretty bad experience overall and it is really hard to recommend to anyone until it gets patched or gets additional content in the future.

    t’s broken, it’s stripped of content, it’s just plain boring. The worst Battlefield of the modern era.

    I have Sat here for the last hour reading through official and user reviews to see what everyone is saying and essentially what i am seeing isI have Sat here for the last hour reading through official and user reviews to see what everyone is saying and essentially what i am seeing is people overreacting about how bad Battlefield 2042 is. Bear in mind this game is new and is early access. Every game launches with questionable bugs, glitches, exploits you get the point. I don't understand what people are basing their disappointment on. Okay there isn't enough gamemodes. I agree, the basic game will get truly repetitive after a long time, agreed. Hazard Zone is a good concept executed badly, could possibly be redeemed but they need to focus on redemption at this moment in time. They need to look at the bad reviews and see what people are consistently complaining about as if you fix/add things people are complaining about to the point where you have covered everything there won't be anything further to complain about.

    My personal opinion on the game is I think its a step down the right path. But the next couple months are crucial to the games success. Its enjoyable, yes but I can see the content lacking very soon. But I think people need to cut them some slack and not one overly critical of the situation as I think its becoming worse the is actually is

    ive playes battlefield 2047 for a few hours. and yes this kinda hurts but yea. this is a very bad game. first thing is that is dosent feelive playes battlefield 2047 for a few hours. and yes this kinda hurts but yea. this is a very bad game. first thing is that is dosent feel like a battlefield game anymore but it feel like call of duty and rainbow six siege on a big empty map with 128 people. u run over the hole map just to get killed.

    bad things to talk about.

    1- the xp system in this game aint good anymore and not the same as the previously games.
    2- there is extremely little content than what was in the previous games.
    3- wierd bugs in the car like often if u hold the steering wheel ur hands a floating in the air lol.
    4- its such few gamemodes than it was before in previous games.
    5- idk if they have patched the bug that u can drive that boat up walls but still its such a wierd bug.
    6- someone says that theres a mistake in the game about the sniper bullet do not follow where u
    aim. but rather goes more to the left or right side of the scope.
    7- i dont like the menu style and how things have been setted up.
    8- it seems like they have forgotten the hill battlefield was but rather code up and design this wierd
    and sad shooting game.

    ok theres a lot of things to talk more about but this is the biggest topics that i met that is bad.

    ok lets talk about some good things and fetures ayyy.
    1- the vibration in the ps5 controller is cool. u can feel it good when u walk and shoot.
    2 the tornado i would say is a cool design.
    3- the graphics is kinda good i guess but i still feel like battlefield 1 and 5 have better effects idk why.

    the thats is the bad and good things i met and noticed. 4/10

    Game is clunky, arcadey and the balancing is completely broke, Don’t waste you’re money on battlefield 2042, in my opinion go back and buy bf3 etc,

    Overall - avoid at all costs

    What a disappointment I was really looking for a working modern battlefield, not a miss or what was built to be a battle royal. This is not aWhat a disappointment I was really looking for a working modern battlefield, not a miss or what was built to be a battle royal. This is not a battlefield it's something else and it was an epilepsy-inducing, 12-bit games frames, and glitchy disaster.

    Stop selling the name if you don't make the game. back to battlefields 4 and 1. Big zero for PC and I would give it a negative score if I could in ps5 especially because I can't refund my money back.
