Fans are praising Pokemon Scarlet & Violet with low ratings on Metacritic

The game has over half negative reviews on Metacritic

A long-awaited Pokemon, the Scarlet & Violet versions seem to have fallen out of favor with fans of the franchise. Game Freak’s latest game, which launched last Friday (18), has been the target of frequent criticism from the public, who began voicing their displeasure with the game via reviews on Metacritic.

“Pokemon fans have terrible taste and this game proves it. It was full of bugs that completely ruined the immersion,” said the user.

One of the industry’s most prominent review sites has received a slew of negative comments for the new game in the franchise. Despite a 7.6 rating among experts, Pokémon Scarlet & Violet has a 2.9 rating from the public. As of this writing, there are over 1,300 reviews, of which 650 are negative.

Among the most critical criticisms of users are the graphical problems that are often encountered in the game. Most of them point out that the game doesn’t seem finished and complain about the amount charged by Game Freak for something of this quality. However, so far, the developer and Nintendo have not commented on the criticism of the game.

“Pokemon fans have terrible taste and this game proves it. It’s full of bugs that completely ruin the immersion. The frame rate is all over the place, the performance issues are many, and some of the Pokemon designs are completely lacking. Thank goodness. And yet people still bought it. This is an unfinished game. Don’t Waste your money on this pathetic attempt to make money,” one player fired.

The player collected the bugs and glitches found by the community

This weekend, a Pokémon Scarlet & Violet player compiled bugs and glitches found in the game since launch. With nearly five minutes of footage, he managed to collect some of the issues players have been reporting since last Friday. While some are comical, they show that the title is causing a lot of headaches for fans of the franchise.

There were so many problems found in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet that many gamers came to compare Game Freak’s latest release to Cyberpunk 2077. Even living one of the best moments in the history of the title, CD Projekt Red had a job to fix all the bugs that the players found.
