100%. I've played every game. I didn't like the direction it went with BF1 and BF5, but at least those games generally delivered a coherent experience, and generally had some neat novelty to them.Yes, I own the game. It's the worst "battlefield" title I've ever played.
I still remember how trash the launch was for BF Vietnam, and all sorts of problems throughout the series. However, there is no doubt in my mind this is the worst one. Full stop. No question. The launch is awful, and honestly I just don't see how they could fix this game. It's horrific. It needed at least 2 more years minimum of full scale development time on every aspect.
And again, even games that I really didn't like, like BF1, were at least entertaining on launch due to their graphics and sound. This game has none of it. It just looks like garbage. This might be the first Battlefield game where the competing CoD release also looks substantially better, so it doesn't even have that going for it. It's not that CoD: Vanguard looks amazing BTW, it's the fact that everything about 2042 is just complete garbage from a design standpoint. The 3D graphics look like shit, the UI looks like shit, and the artwork looks like shit.
IMO, the series is going to be dead 100% with this game. This is another Anthem for EA in my book. It's just so painfully obvious at this point. By the time they fix this trash no one is going to care.
