30 hours in (around level 41), and I have to stay I tried really hard to love the game so far. I've been playing the beta for a decent amount of time and I knew this was going to happen, but only after I played the ea for a week I discovered that the game has a bigger problem than its optimisation : the game design itself. The maps are incredibly empty and the travel time between points is huge, making the transitions very frustrating : walk 600 meters you get sniped, respawn walk 200 meters you get killed by an apache, respawn on squad you're in the middle of nowhere while 30 players are waiting for you near the next point. Playing as infantry often feels like a mess (I do like the map orbital though).

I'm still going to play the game and keep some hope for the next year of updates, but I'd like to see some major changes concerning the maps themselves, a lot more weapons (2 MG's and 3 secondary weapons is unacceptable), and a stable experience at the very least : I've seen (on ps5) flying people across the map, hovercraft climbing towers, jeeps litterally flying in slow motion, not to mention the amounts of rollbacks I experience on every single game.

In this current state I'd recommend to wait a few months at least before buying the game, you won't miss much.

Battlefield 2042 is DICE’s most average Battlefield yet, one that despite boasting two new modes to discover in Hazard Zone and Battlefield Portal, clearly forgot about the core of the experience. With some weird design decisions, plenty of bugs, and more crashes than a destruction derby; the future of Battlefield, this is not. It’s still fun, but we hoped for so much more.

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 definitely worth the purchase if you like any old Battlefield games or if you are a fan of FPS games and are looking for a completely different vibe; the huge maps really made this game way more fun for me, even though I have seen some people complaining about it I guess it’s just preference and opinions at the end of the day, but the Portal Mode is worth the price tag you can also get a 10 hour trial with EA Play of this game if you want to try it before you buy it.
