    A lot of theories floating around but you are overthinking this whole thing. Game is kind of a stinker and so it didn't sell well. Simple as that. The only difference is now games cost a lot more to make, so when one fails it's more painful to stakeholders.

    And there is people with narrow minds that take the short demo with many gameplay mechanics locked as welcome affirmation for their prejudices. Maybe posts like yours are complete trash too?

    The gameplay is honestly the least offensive part of this, feels good, similar to AMID EVIL.

    The Metacritic score for this game's PC version sits at 66. That's pretty dreadful. There are many games where you could argue their quality, and argue people's prejudices, but maybe this isn't the hill to die on. If someone liked the game, good for them, but when there are dozens of games releasing every two months that review far better, I think it's fair to skip the ones that don't meet that level of quality.

    It's also pretty meaningless. Recent Steam user reviews are 75% positive. This is in no way comparable to stupid trash like Gollum or Elex 2. If you think it is, you've just lost your sense for scale (or never had it) and are just one more regrettable online troll.

    Not understanding this because there's plenty of "big AAA" games with stellar reviews that I find to be copy pasta recycled crap. This was an original title, something different and I appreciated the fact they tried something NEW. In a market full of remakes, remasters and sequels I liked a fresh idea and enjoyed the gameplay. The story wasn't the best, but I'm not sure I've ever paid much attention to a story in an fps, just give me the gameplay. The hate for this game is too much. And it seems to be by people that haven't even actually played it or given it a fair shot.

    I wasn't comparing the game to anything else. Also, I don't appreciate your language.

    Like I said, if someone likes the game, good for them; still seems fair to me that others would skip it. I do not consider that hate.

    Then don't feel addressed. There have been other posts in this thread that clearly justify this language. Just calling something trash without naming what is bad (the game surely is not ideal) is just expression of mental poverty.

    Elex 2 (64/75%) and Immortals of Aveum's (69/72%) Metacritic and Steam user reviews are comparable to each other. If Elex 2 is "stupid trash", but someone's a troll for calling Aveum (regular?) trash, then maybe you've found common ground here. Maybe. ;-)

    Long story short, if the developer post-mortem points every which way but at the game's own quality, that says something about how much the developer misjudged his work. I'm no stranger to playing mediocre games (currently playing Unreal 2), but in a competitive market a mediocre game isn't going likely to perform very well, financially.

    Elex has some fan base that's very lenient due to nostalgia.

    It's actually interesting how a score of 66 on a scale of 100 is dreadful. I think the current rating system is pointless if 80 is good, 90 is very good and 100 is great, but anything below 80 is trash. Wouldn't it be better to have a scale of three? 0 is crap, 1 is good, 2 is very good and 3 is great. Or, go back to how things were meaning 50 is in the middle of 100 and therefore OK or Fine = neither positives or negatives tip the scale in any direction, not good but not bad. 100 should be almost unobtainable as no game is perfect, though some are damn close.
