NBA 2K20 Review-Bombed on Metacritic and Steam

Riddled with micro-transactions and other issues, NBA 2K20 is getting review-bombed on Metacritic and Steam.

Same game wrapped in new package each year, basically that's how most of the sports genre titles operate in general. These games are annually put out in stores with noting more than a few minor updates and a full-priced tag.

Aside from these common criticisms, latest release form this year's basketball simulation video game series came under fire by upset fans and NBA 2K20 starts getting review-bombed on Metacritic and Steam within weeks of launch.

This outrage from fans is largely due to aggressive micro-transactions used in the game and reports of crashes that has currently sunk its Metacritic user score to 0.5 and similarly, reviews on Steam has been overwhelmingly negative so far.

Players are highlighting methods used in NBA 2K20 as a gambling scheme for publisher and they were fed up with its long loading times. Its glitches are so weird that people started a hashtag #Fix2K20, which started trending on Twitter.

RELATED: Death Stranding Will Have Very Easy Mode

If carelessness of developers about actually adding new content to their game was not obvious enough until now, it became more evident than ever when PC version of NBA 2K20 shows you a logo of NBA 2K19 on Windows taskbar.

Whenever big-name developers and publishers do something that irks their fan-base, they often lean towards review-bombing to get their attention on particular issue since most of these companies do not listen to their customers at all.

RELATED: Days Gone New Game Plus Mode Release Date

Even though heavily panned by fans, sports-title selling companies like developer Visual Concepts and publisher 2K Games will shamelessly put out new NBA 2K installments each year that is just few roster updates and some slight changes.

Considering how sports titles are one of the most money generating machines in video game industry, developers should get back to fixing these major issues of NBA 2K20 that are angering fans on all platforms as soon as possible.
