Naughty Dog’s highly anticipated game, The Last of Us Part II, was finally released and was bombarded with negative comments as soon as it was released. The game’s user score in Metacritic has dropped to 3.3.
Developed by Naughty Dog and one of the most anticipated games for PlayStation 4, The Last of Us Part II was eventually released after many delays.
The game, which was sent to the names by the game press and received with very positive reactions, was also recently released to the players. The game, which managed to get the “must-play” badge in Metacritic, was allegedly bombed by players for its political theme.
The Last of Us Part II Shelling
As of the time of writing this content, the game with 22 thousand 153 users in Metacritic has 3.3 points. In addition, 8 thousand 340 out of more than 10 thousand user reviews coming to the game are negative. In the negative comments about the game, there are criticisms that the game is “propaganda” and contains “political” elements. In such comments in particular, the focus is on the LGBT characters in the game and their processing in the game.
One of the reasons why the game is bombarded with low points may be the information about the game before the game is released. As you know, there has been a huge leak in recent months, including the end of the game. Fans who wait for the game to appear and see this information may also have bombarded the game with negative comments.
Among the negative comments received are comments that the second game is a copy of the first game, there are too many cinematic scenes in the game and it feels more like a movie than a game, the script is very bad and the developers dare to to kill some characters.
We have already seen that the games that cause controversy in some areas are bombarded with negative comments in Metacritic. An example of this was VALORANT from Riot Games. Of course, this doesn’t mean that all comments about The Last of Us Part II are the result of hate speech. So what do you think of the game?
