Fast and Furious Crossroads

According to Steam, Fast and Furious Crossroads is “an epic new chapter in the Fast & Furious saga with high-speed heists, cinematic nonstop action, and adrenaline-fueled stunts in exotic locations. Join longtime family and a tough new crew to hunt down an international crime syndicate and bring them to street justice.” This game was so poorly received, it was delisted. People were upset at the price for a game that provided so little. Fast and Furious has many successful movies and video games under its belt, but Crossroads isn’t one of them. Bad in-game physics and lack of content were just insult to injury.

Vin Diesel May Be the Only Redeeming Quality

Providing a 3/10 score on Push Square, Liam Croft made sure to review the game as brutally and honestly as possible. Croft writes, “How Fast & Furious Crossroads wound up as a full-price release will forever remain a mystery. It is lacking in every department possible, from shallow and repetitive gameplay through to abysmal visuals that belong on the previous generation of consoles. Not even the most committed Fast & Furious fans should subject themselves to this monstrosity. That is unless you want to have a good laugh alongside Vin Diesel.”

A Masterpiece of Incompetence

Leonardo Faria graciously gave this game an extra half point, giving this a total of 3.5/10 on Way Too Many Games. They didn’t mince their words, saying “It’s a masterpiece of incompetence, a game so devoid of redeeming qualities to the point that its ineptitude ends up being its greatest selling point. You can have a blast with this game, not by actually having fun with its mechanics or set pieces, but by laughing at how bad it is.” Surely Bandai Namco Entertainment didn’t have that in mind when creating a game from a hit franchise.

The Actors Did Their Best…

Reddit is a fantastic place to check out reviews for games people really like or hate. r/games is a popular subreddit with dedicated gamers always ready to throw in their opinions. u/ContributorX_PJ64 was very sympathetic to those involved in the game development. “I feel sorry for the actors involved in this, because they likely did their best with bad voice direction and lacklustre scripts. It must be especially sad for Vin Diesel, because Diesel always had a really sincere love for videogames, and Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay is just amazing. I’d love to see him in videogames again, in a role where people take him seriously.”

Valorant is a free-to-play first-person tactical hero shooter developed and published by Riot Games that was release in June of 2020. It was similar to the Counter Strike series many gamers became enamoured by. Riot Games also developed League of Legends, a wildly successful game. There were a lot of expectations for Valorant upon its release, but players quickly lost interest in this tactical shooting game. Aside from mechanics issues within the game, the gaming community that played Valorant became known as a “highly toxic community with surveys in 2019 and 2021 showing it is the most toxic video game in the world, with 79-80% of all players reporting to have experienced in-game harassment at some point.”

Buggy Game and Unresponsive Staff

“Valorant is legitimately one of the worst games I have ever played in my entire life. The staff team completely ignores all feedback on the game and works on it when they feel like it. Call of duty has plenty of good maps and Valorant only has 5, and they’re all extremely poorly designed. Staff team refuses to acknowledge this. The damage is inaccurate, you can shoot somebody 6 times and not kill them, however on the damage chart on the buy menu, the damage is displayed and it’s completely inaccurate,” says Woody Boy on Metacritic.

Some of the Worst Gunplay in a Shooting Game

Shooting games naturally need to have excellent mechanics in order to allow the player to have the best experience possible. One of the biggest complaints Valorant faces, however, is its gunplay. Providing a 1/10 score, Newan-90242 reviews Valorant on IMDb saying, “Gunplay is Clunky and boring, every gun feels super unreliable, like the winner of a gunfight is usually whoever isn’t looking the other way or has better RNG. Absolutely awful movement with a mechanic that slows your movement speed by 70% for getting shot, basically removing all chance of dodging even on the movement characters using abilities its just impossible.”

Toxicity is the Top Reason Gamers Hate Valorant

u/Mayhemfest08 says, “Honestly the toxic Community really made me not wanna play the game anymore. The part that sucks is very few people are actually constructive, instead of telling someone how much they suck, tell them how they can do better. And since the games are so long you can get stuck with a toxic team for 30 mins, I know the mute button exists for a reason but this game is incredibly team oriented and if you’re muting each other, you’re almost better off just Go Next.”
