Not really. If the DM runs skills that involve nature, the 5.5e ranger is going to be far superior to the highly limited 2 terrain 2014 ranger since he has all terrains PLUS all the rest of nature. If the DM doesn't run nature challenges, the 5.5e ranger is going to be even farther ahead, because he has the option to get expertise in any skill, so can pick social or other exploration skills like investigation or perception, where the 2014 ranger is limited to the 2 terrains that are not being used.This really depends on how the DM runs skills and languages.
He loses a small bit in combat, but so what. He's gaining huge amounts out of combat which far more than mitigate the minor downturn in combat damage. And really, he's getting the ability to learn ANY primal spell from ANY school except for evocation, which has the potential to far outweigh that loss of a piddly amount of DPR. He might not be nerfed in combat, either.The change of the 2014 ranger to the current playtest ranger is a nerf and a buff
