WWE 2K20’s critical reception is so poor it lead Opencritic to discover a bug on the site

The story of WWE 2K20’s shocking quality continues, this time with a unique anecdote from a big reviews aggregator.

I’s no secret at this point that WWE 2K20 has been poorly received by critics and players, who have been sharing footage of bugs and glitches, often calling it a last-gen game.

Even Sony support acknowledged the issues and started offering players refunds quickly after receiving requests.

Opencritic, the independent game review aggregate site, typically displays a percentage based on the number of critics who recommend a given game. This information can be found on the game’s main page alongside the aggregate score and the overall rating.

However, in the case of WWE 2K20, not a single listed review recommended the game. This has apparently not happened before with any other game, which caused Opencritic to notice a bug on the site that would display a question mark in place of a 0%.

The official Opencritic Twitter account shared this amusing detail earlier, which is pretty impressive when you consider the volume of games that pass through the site’s algorithm. But, with barely any reviews giving it a 50% rating, it’s clear why this happened.
