Konami's disaster called eFootball 2022 is the only game with a lower rating than Battlefield 2042.

Battlefield 2042 has been available for several days now for those who pre-ordered the pricey Premium version of the game, which comes with an early access perk.

Those who got to play Battlefield 2042 over the last week have been sharing their thoughts on the game via gaming forums, social media and Steam reviews. 

The reception seems to be mostly negative, especially on Steam, where Battlefield 2042 is currently the sixth worst-rated game ever, sitting at 22 per cent positive reviews.

This abysmal score also means that Battlefield 2042 is the second-worst rated game on Steam in 2021. Konami's football simulation eFootball 2022 is the only game on Valve's platform with a lower score - sitting at 12 per cent positive reviews.

So, is Battlefield 2042 actually this bad? Does it deserve such an abysmal score? The simple answer is - No. Battlefield 2042 is not a good game at the moment and it has plenty of issues but it's not terrible as these Steam scores suggest. 

We're currently reviewing the game and can confirm that Battlefield 2042 is mostly a disappointing experience, but it's certainly playable and can have some fun moments, especially in Portal mode. 

It's probably going to be a solid shooter sometime in 2022 when DICE deliver many missing features and add more content, primarily weapons and attachments and perhaps Portal maps.
