Fallout 76 is already getting review bombed by players on Metacritic

Fallout 76 servers went live early and folks are already review bombing it on Metacritic.

The inevitable review bombs are dropping over on Metacritic from those who were able to play Fallout 76 early.

Some of us won't have a chance to play it until the physical edition arrives at some point today, tomorrow, or the flipping 16th, so we can't say whether we agree or not.

Anyway, slow mail service aside, the game hasn't been out very long and folks are already tearing it a new one. Because that's the norm.

Just use Steam as a reference point and you'll get it. Due to the game being unavailable through Steam, folks have instead taken to the review aggregator site Metacritic to voice displeasure.

The comments range from Fallout 76 being empty and boring, the amount of bugs and glitches, complaints over the lack of NPCs, and the usual yelling at Todd Howard.

There's more obviously, but we can't cover all 313 user ratings. You'll have to go have a look for yourself.

Out of the 313 reviews, there are 58 that are positive and eight are mixed. The rest are negative.

Fallout 76 releases today on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

If you are just now jumping into the Wastelands of West Virginia, here's some beginners tips for Fallout 76.  And if you’re playing on PC, here’s a quick fix to making Fallout 76 look much better.
