Yesterday, Astral Chain released to overwhelmingly positive reception. Our own Brett Medlock scored the game at a 9.5/10, calling it “nothing short of amazing.” However, some people don’t have anything positive to say about Astral Chain. In fact, such gamers are review bombing the game with negative reviews because it’s a Nintendo Switch exclusive.
You may have thought the console wars had ended, but they’re very much alive. As a counterattack, fans of Astral Chain are also review bombing the game with positive reviews. Currently, the positive reviews outweigh the negative. However, this is a problem. With so many dishonest reviews on the website, how will consumers make an educated decision when buying the game? This is an unfortunate side effect of review bombing, so hopefully, people will refrain from doing this in the future.
Either way, Astral Chain will likely stay a Switch exclusive. Nintendo helped Platinum publish the game. As such, it’s rather unlikely that the game will ever hit a PlayStation or Xbox system at all.
What do you guys think of this? Do you think review bombing is bad news for the industry? Are these people right to be upset about Astral Chain‘s exclusivity? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
