    Well, it's not bad after so many updates. Still the movement/gunplay isn't as stellar as BF1/V but I'm enjoying it. Warzone 2 is worse than Warzone 1, so 2042 is the only game for now.

    imo 2042 is now a real bf game. I'm having a ton of fun. Very happy they were able to turn things around.

    They are still asking full price for this game on Steam? I was a huge BF fan in the past but passed on 2042 after the initial reveiws. May try it one day.

    It's fun, but I still play 2042, BF V and BF 1 more :)

    Trying to do basic things like binding keyboard keys is almost impossible now. Thanks Dice.

    I bought 3 copies of this (super duper version) in week one and we stopped playing within a month. I need to give it a chance again to see the changes. It stands as perhaps the worst value game purchase I've ever made.

    They are adding classes back which is piquing a ton of people's interest. I hope it makes a comeback because mw2 is the worst multiplayer fps Ive ever played.

    Finally installed it overnight to see what's new.... Loads up to "connecting"... Wouldn't connect, ever. Uninstalled it.

    Re-downloaded. (DSL) 8 hours later... I finally get into a game. All my guns are stuck on: zoomed-in. I cannot un-zoom them nor can I run. I looked through the key bindings, I cannot figure out how to un-zoom them. Read about similar bugs from a year ago.

    I want to like this game. 2042 doesn't seem to agree.

    Right? Just reminds me that when they were tiny and brand new, with their much cooler globe logo, they released fantastic games like M.U.L.E., Archon, that goofy Larry Bird vs Dr J game, stuff that I adored as a child. Now it's a bit of a shocker when EA does something that isn't disappointing.
