The audio design isn’t as good as it has been in previous Battlefield games, and the spatial audio feels very 'off' at times. It’s still pretty good, just not excellent.
Battlefield 2042 is still a pretty great looking game in the grand scheme of things, it’s just not going to blow you away like it perhaps should. No new big next-generation wow-ness on show here.
Battlefield still handles as well as it ever has, even if the console controls do need a lot of fine-tuning before they really work properly.
Portal and Hazard Zone are clearly the best new additions, and while Conquest can be brilliant, there’s not a lot of substance at the heart of the game, otherwise.
Some of the achievements are downright tough, which isn’t a bad thing, but they scream pure grind. It’s probably going to take 1,000 hours for this one, in truth, and some are very situational, which is less than ideal.
