Released a few days ago , Battlefield 2042, the highly anticipated FPS by Electronic Arts, does not seem to have a good time , at least on Steam. The chapter seems to have already been targeted by users who have bombarded it with criticism on the well-known Metacritic site , to date the score is steady at 2.3 against a discrete 73 as regards general criticism.
The community had already shown disappointment with the title well before it was officially released, during the beta already users were disappointed by some features, one above all the small amount of weapons present: 4 assault rifles, 4 SMGs, 2 LMGs, 3 sniper rifles and 3 long range rifles, 3 pistols and 3 more special weapons.
There is a fact that is however making us reflect, a real paradox if we think about it. In fact, on Steam Battlefield 2042 turns out to be one of the titles with the worst rate but, at the same time, the most played by users. As already seen in our review, the latest work by Electronic Arts is not absolutely perfect, but at the same time it is one of the funniest chapters of the entire franchise. There is still a lot of work for the team that will have to keep expectations high with constant updates that will lead to more and more additions over time.
It will therefore be interesting to see how the situation will evolve in the coming days or even months. The development, as you well know, has not been in step with the expectations that have been created around it but it is also wrong to consider it a bad title. Despite negative reviews on Steam, the game is currently the eighth most played, hitting a concurrent peak of 82,675 since launch. What do you think of this paradox? Are you playing Battlefield 2042?
