Battlefield 2042 is the worst-rated game in the franchise

Even we all hoped that Battlefield 2042 would be dominating the FPS genre, the fans have expressed their opinion, mayhap generating a low amount of income for the gigantic publisher EA. Overall, this is a new record low for the series, with critics still pouring in from the unsatisfied, bittered public.

Metacritic, the leading portal for the aggregation of video games as per many, it’s pretty critical for video games’ outcomes in general. On Metacritic, the score varies based on the platforms, which in Battlefield 2042’s case, there are three. Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, and PC. For each product, the scores from each review are averaged, and for Battlefield 2042, the following scores have been attributed:

  • Xbox Series X/S: 64 rating.
  • PlayStation 5: 68 rating.
  • PC: 71 rating.

With aggregation pulled from Metacritic’s repository, every other Battlefield game has been more successful than the latest installment in the franchise. Battlefield 2042 seems to be struggling to meet fans’ demands, and has aroused a massive backlash in the community. But do not get me wrong, I love Battlefield 2042, and I have immense fun in the game, despite the lack of performance and other flaws it has. However, the flow of negative Steam reviews and critics on websites such as Metacritic doesn’t render a blooming option for EA DICE.

Compared to previous Battlefield games, Battlefield Hardline is the closest in score to Battlefield 2042 but still holds a higher ground, putting Battlefield 2042 on the worst spot in the franchise history.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. Currently stuck in WoW with high M+ keys, Tarkov, a bit of Gray Zone Warfare, Dota 2, and CS2. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC. If you need anything, feel free to contact me on X!
