The mobile version of the popular RPG contains traditional elements of the series, such as fighting enemy hordes and the ability to strengthen your character. Strengthening is possible through experience points and equipment such as better weapons and armor. However, legendary gems create a third way of evolution that is inaccessible without spending real money in the game. They are casually offered when buying legendary boxes that act as lotboxes and seem to be very rare.
The controversy over Diablo Immortal’s microtransactions began shortly after its release when YouTube, called Bellular News, calculated what it would cost to reach the maximum level for its character, $ 110,000. Streamer Quin69 decided to spend NZ $ 25 NZ (approximately R $ 85) continuously on Twitch until he received the legendary 5-star jewelry and after spending $ 10,000 (approximately R $ 32,000) he did not receive it. He responded to passionate criticism with phrases such as: “Who needs at least $ 10,000? What should I buy? A car?”

Diablo Immortal’s Metacritic rating made it the lowest rated computer game of all time. The iPhone (iOS) version is slightly better by 10 to 0.5 points, but that only makes it the 1903 worst title among 1921 mobile game ratings. Recently, a similar case could be observed with Gran Turismo 7 for PS4 and PS5.

Currently, Gran Turismo 7 is rated 2.0 with over 10000 user reviews and is Sony’s game with the lowest user rating on Metacritic.
