The Last of Us 2 Review-Bombed on Metacritic

Due to poor story-telling and SJW propaganda, The Last of Us Part II is getting review-bombed on Metacritic.

After many trials and tribulations, PlayStation 4-exclusive action-adventure title The Last of Us Part II from developer Naughty Dog and publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment has seen release lately as a sequel to The Last of Us.

Although many industry critics are giving away a perfect score for the long-awaited sequel to 2013 critically-acclaimed title, a legion of angry users are review-bombing TLoU2 on review aggregator site Metacritic following launch.

Though official reviews on Metacritic from various high-profile news outlets are overtly positive and currently sitting on an average rating of 95, user score sits at 3.4 out of 10, mostly blaming its poorly written controversial storyline.

A few months back, there has been a huge backlash at Naughty Dog and TLoU2 game director Neil Druckmann from many players for similar reason, when The Last of Us sequel got leaked online by an allegedly disgruntled employee.

In spite of concerns over coverage of crunch culture within Naughty Dog and payment dispute, delays and a major story leak, The Last of Us Part 2 remained one of the most-anticipated games of 2020 to a large number of audiences.

Majority of The Last of Us fan-base are angry at how poorly their favorite characters are treated overall. Many are mad about an awful demise of a main character due to "Political Agenda" and "SJW Propaganda" of director Neil Druckmann.

WARNING: THE FOLLOWING CONTAINS POTENTIAL SPOILERS FOR THE LAST OF US PART II.

As expected, story premise for The Last of Us 2 has picked up directly from where The Last of Us originally concluded. Ellie and Joel Miller are now living in Jackson, Wyoming, after surviving a deadly outbreak of Cordyceps fungus infection.

Joel is a beloved character from first game, which cares for Ellie and she looks up to him as a father figure and mentor. TLoU sequel sees Ellie as lead protagonist and she will be going up against a newly introduced character named Abby.

Thanks to early leaks, people already knew that Joel dies at the hands on Abby, who is daughter of a Firefly surgeon that he killed. Hours into gameplay, not only he is clubbed to death by a "nobody", her friends spat on his corpse as well.

What follows next is that a vengeful Ellie takes it upon herself to take revenge for Joel and she goes to Seattle to find her group. From there, both parties are at each other's throat through many series of brutal events until the game ends.

Compared to original The Last of Us, all these plot points mentioned above seems like garbage to long-time series fans that has been waiting for last seven years to get a worthy sequel that would see Ellie and Joel teaming up once again.

People felt betrayed when they found out Naughty Dog and Druckmann were busy with cultural representation and diversity, instead of focusing on basic character development and any scope for story is largely replaced with shallow gameplay.

Review-bombing is becoming a growing problem in recent years as fans storms Metacritic with negative reviews whenever they feel very upset about a certain decisions made by developers and sometime it is used for some sort of protests.

The Last of Us II getting attacked by fans and being review-bombed on Metacritic is not an unforeseen event at all. Despite a surge of overtly negative response online, Naughty Dog can still sell a few million copies of the game pretty easily.
