Wait, why is a portion of the Spanish community review bombing the game? Bad translation/dub?

There's a huge Kojima hate boner going around on social media. It's probably in answer to people being vocal with how much they worship him but it's super shitty that people can't just say how much they like someone's works without having to face direct or indirect consequences.

Metacritic has culled these kinds of stupid user reviews in the past.

Hopefully we get the same result for this.

I've only seen that happen on this forum.

most of these are probably fanboys of both sides giving it 0s and 10s without even playing it.

the reaction i saw so far on twitter, on era and on reddit is very positive

user reviews are trash. these are from the same person, for example:

That was expected.
It's really funny that a game with tens of hours of gameplay is getting lots of 0s and 10s after only hours from release! Haters and lovers of this game (and Kojima) are crazy!

Don't even know why they even bother having a user review system that can be abused this easily. Or even bother having user ratings in general.

Why anyone would ever look at user reviews for a video game is baffling to me. The community has proven time and time again to not be able to just act like normal, level headed people. It’s impressive Metacritic even keeps the feature live, it doesn’t serve a productive purpose

its being bombed by 10s and 0s. the 10 reviews are hilarious too, lot of them are clearly trolls.
user scores are useless

Imagine spending years building something about bringing people together and the response is this much cynicism and division

So the negative ones aren't legit but the positive ones are? That's the vibe I'm getting from OP at least.
i wouldn't take all the 10/10s barely a day after release seriously either. user scores on meta are largely trash, they should just remove the system.
