The official release of Battlefield 2042 took place this past Friday, and it's fair to say the reception has been mixed at best. In fact, there have been a lot of players taking to the web to criticise the game in its current state.

Over on the Steam platform, the game is sporting a "Mostly Negative" user score at the time of writing based on over 30,000 reviews, with criticisms centring around everything from missing features to unbalanced maps and gameplay.

The Xbox community has also been airing their thoughts, with most of the issues relating to poor performance and bugs, particularly on Xbox Series X. Here's what a couple of Reddit users had to say:

"I'm trying to find some enjoyment out of this game despite its very many problems, but I can hardly play and finish matches. The one thing that ticks me off more then anything is [the] bugs and crashes."

"I played 30 mins and then lag started. Major FPS drops. Had to restart the game to be able to play for another 30 mins before it started again."

It's worth noting that Xbox recently pushed out an optional update (to become mandatory on November 23rd) targeting issues with Battlefield 2042 on Series X, and will "continue to support EA to improve Battlefield 2042 stability".

Nevertheless, BF 2042's poor performance is just one item on a long list of "issues" that many players aren't wild about right now, although we should point out that we've seen plenty of reports of people enjoying the game as well. As for ourselves, we gave Battlefield 2042 a 7/10 in our review, stating that it's "a bit of a mixed bag as things stand right now with the excellent Portal mode overshadowing almost everything else on offer."
