Battlefield 2042 recently underwent its Open Beta, allowing many players from around the world to sample the flavors of EA’s latest entry into the large-scale shooter franchise.

After playing it for several hours, Doc had many positive things to say about the game: “Sniping is a lot of fun,” and “Battlefield looks fantastic, it just looks so good man.” He also commented on its in-game dynamic events, saying they “kinda pull that off, really well.”

Soon after his analysis of the Battlefield Beta, one of his subscribers asked him if he was more impressed with Halo or Battlefield, to which Doc immediately replied: “Battlefield.”

His take on both games became interesting very quickly as he explained that there were “elements of Battlefield I was more impressed with,” and then hesitated when he tried to think of redeeming qualities for Halo Infinite.

Doc’s breakdown of Battlefield 2042 and subsequent comparison to Halo Infinite begins at 5:53:00.

After a long pause, Doc said: “I mean literally, Halo was like Halo 4.5, that’s what Halo Infinite felt like to me. I gotta be honest, I don’t even remember playing Halo.” Forgetting that he’d even played multiple matches of the Beta isn’t the most glowing feedback for the game.

He did eventually give it some praise saying that “the map design on Halo Infinite was their strongest point.” Other than that, Doc didn’t have too much else to say before breaking off to talk about Ghost Recon Frontline.

Both games have had their own positive and negative feedback with Battlefield players complaining about the new revive system, and Halo players unhappy about the lack of co-op at launch.
