The new war FPS from Electronic Arts is not starting on the right foot at the moment. After the thousands of negative Steam reviews for Battlefield 2042, the first critics’ ratings on the DICE title aren’t the warmest. And the reaction of users on Metacritic is even worse.
First of all, it must be specified that there are still few reviews of Battlefield 2042 published, but a first vision on the reaction of critics and the public is already possible. At the time of writing, the PS5 version of the game averages 66 based on 7 reviews, whereas the Xbox Series X / S edition comes in at 65 based on six ratings. It is much better on PC instead, where a total of 41 international reviews have been collected leading to an average of 74, good but still not explosive given the importance of the game.
What is striking, however, is the User Score of each edition which, although always to be taken with a grain of salt, denotes how the public is not at all satisfied with the latest EA production. If on PS5 you get to 3.4 on average, on Xbox Series X / S we are faced with a measly 2.3. But once again it is on PC that the numbers are much more impressive, with an overall 2.4 based on 2682 evaluations, of which 1349 are red light, compared to only 178 positive verdicts.
The developers are aware of the technical and content problems of the game and are already working to improve the work more and more: the first update for Battlefield 2042 is available, and more likely will arrive in the coming weeks.
