Although Battlefield 2042 has only been out for a few days, it is evident that players are dissatisfied. DICE’s current game is the eighth-worst-rated title in Steam’s history. The game is ranked on the Steam250 “Hall of Shame” website, which compiles user reviews from Steam (as opposed to opinions from critics).
