—Fans of the series enjoy Warzone 2, but others choose not to review it for various reasons—
There has been a lot of criticism directed at Call of Duty: Warzone 2 on review aggregate sites like Metacritic and Steam. A long-awaited battle royale was launched on November 16 by Activision and Infinity Ward. In general, Call of Duty: Warzone 2 has been more positively received than Caldera, and some have called it the return of Warzone to its roots. While some have enjoyed the game, others haven’t.
Steam and Metacritic listings for Call of Duty: Warzone 2 are flooded with negative user reviews. The current rating for Call of Duty: Warzone 2 is “Mostly Negative,” with over 7,600 users weighing in on the title. The Metacritic user rating for Call of Duty: Warzone 2 on PC is 2.6, with 20 negative reviews versus just four positive reviews. According to Metacritic, the PS5 version has a similar rating.
Many of the same complaints are echoed in the negative reviews for Call of Duty: Warzone 2. According to PC gamers, Call of Duty: Warzone 2 controller users have an unfair advantage because of aim assist. Others are unhappy with the user interface and loot system in Call of Duty: Warzone 2.
Some people don’t like the Al Mazrah map in Call of Duty: Warzone 2, have trouble accessing the game or are angry that the original Call of Duty: Warzone servers are down until November 28. Call of Duty: Warzone 2 has suffered from a flood of 0/10 ratings from disgruntled fans.
Many of these negative reviews admit to only being able to play a few matches of Warzone 2, which could be considered insufficient to judge the game’s quality. No matter what, I look forward to seeing how the reception to Call of Duty: Warzone 2 changes over time. Call of Duty: Warzone 2 may follow in the footsteps of many other games which have bounced back from review bombing, turning “mainly negative” ratings into “positive,” but that remains to be seen.
There will be many updates to Call of Duty: Warzone 2 battle royale in the coming months, changing the game based on fan feedback and adding new content. Warzone 2’s problematic UI could even be altered, resolving one of the players’ biggest complaints about the game.
The original Warzone may be coming back online soon for those who dislike Call of Duty: Warzone 2. There will be a break in the Warzone servers until November 28, after which they will return with Caldera. Those who miss Verdansk can find its splendor in Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile.
