One again the hive mind of the Internet has proven to be – there’s no point beating about the bush here – a huge twat.
Resident Evil 6 has 2,484 user ratings on Metacritic and currently has a score of just 0.4.
Metacritic do not post a table of the lowest user scores but I would guess that very few games have rated as badly as this over the years.
Obviously the score is ridiculous, as are many of the comments. ‘It look like a PSP game ported to HD console’ claims ‘blabla33’ whilst ‘Rick_Donkulous’ offers these sage words, ‘Crapcom totally shat the bed with this turkey.’
It appears a lot of the people registering a score have not played the game and are laying in to Capcom for turning a survival horror game into a shooter.
Capcom will be upset by the reaction but it would be interesting to find out what is happening over at EA, specifically at Visceral and Dead Space 3.
I wonder if they are paying attention?
