Xaviant should be thoroughly embarrassed. This desperate attempt to ape PUBG (they don’t even have the chops to attempt cloning Fortnite) is beyond sad.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds may be a commercial success, but it’s certainly not smelling of roses. After being effortlessly surpassed by Epic Games’ Fortnite and facing criticism for its lackluster updates in the face of competition, PUBG’s lost a huge deal of any goodwill it may have had. Its recent missteps with loot boxes and a moronic premium “Event Pass” have only further tanked its reputation.
I’ve been thinking a lot about PUBG Corp’s ludicrous behavior of late, and grew curious to see how its critical reception among the public has been doing. The Steam page is already swamped with negative reviews these days, but how is that bastion of effective communication, the Metacritic user review section, holding up? Well… not great. In fact it’s been thoroughly bombed by angry people for months.
So it is that I must put on one of those yellow hats with a light on, procure my provisions, and descend into the depths of the Metacritic user reviews to bring you the best, the worst, and the most confusing critiques from the people of the world!
