Battlefield 2042 Has More Than 40,000 Negative Reviews From Users On Steam

Bat­tle­field 2042 has a “most­ly neg­a­tive” aggre­gate review score on Steam as of right now. Many users are stat­ing in these neg­a­tive reviews that the game lacks fea­tures and func­tion­al­i­ty, and it just being gen­er­al­ly buggy.

There are more than 45,000 neg­a­tive reviews out of the close to 67,000 reviews in total. This is a seri­ous­ly large dis­crep­an­cy and it’s unlike­ly DICE or EA are very hap­py with this outcome.

Bat­tle­field V and Bat­tle­field 1 were far more pos­i­tive­ly reviewed on Steam, with these games show­ing aggre­gat­ed scores of “most­ly pos­i­tive” and “very positive.”

A lot of the Bat­tle­field 2042 user reviews on Steam are out­lin­ing the rea­sons for such neg­a­tive feed­back: lack of sin­gle-play­er mode, no leader­board or serv­er brows­er for the All-Out War­fare mode, lim­it­ed weapons, issues with vehi­cles, and much more. “This game had so much poten­tial to be good and EA failed. They did the oppo­site of what the com­mu­ni­ty want­ed,” one per­son said.

This is not the first time DICE has released a game to a mas­sive­ly neg­a­tive recep­tion. Star Wars: Bat­tle­front II had loot box­es in its ear­ly access peri­od, which led to heavy crit­i­cism from fans, lead­ing to DICE’s removal of the loot box sys­tem. Today, the game has Very Pos­i­tive review score on Steam.

DICE has been updat­ing Bat­tle­field 2042 since launch and recent­ly released a decent sized patch that fixed a bit of issues. Since DICE is lean­ing more towards live-ser­vice, so sup­port for Bat­tle­field 2042 will con­tin­ue for quite some time. It’s also rumored that the next Bat­tle­field title might be a full on free-to-play model.
