Last year, the gaming community saw a whole set of frankly weak projects, but this year one title blocked all the others. Platinum Games’ Babylon’s Fall action game has become the lowest rated console exclusive on the PlayStation.
The game received a score of 41 out of 100 on Metacritic and 40/100 on OpenCritic. This is less than the previous “record holder” Godfall (received 61 points). Peak online on Steam at the release was only 650 players.
Journalists noted that the game was stillborn from the very beginning, and if someone had doubts, then beta testing should have dispelled them. Another nail in the coffin was the release between Horizon Forbidden West and Elden Ring.
Babylon’s Fall has been criticized for everything from the graphics and microtransactions to the gameplay.
