What did you expect? The people who cared enough to want the closed beta access worked to get it because they wanted it. and so it received positive reviews from the beta people who played the beta.
I don't think it deserves that low of a score. Seems like loads of csgo fanboys are just giving it bad reviews.
Honestly, who cares about reviews from CSGO gold nova's and hltv wannabe mens.
i like it beacause it feels like cs but the abilities spice it up
imo Valorant is a 6/10 or 7/10 game atm, it doesn't deserve all that hate, ofc there are a lot of things to do but give it a try
Its a competitive multiplayer games that has been out for a day, no one actually knows how good it is yet
first game 17 5 5 -> uninstall, fucking easy and beginner game.
Most of them are trolls. Ppl have different taste you know. There's a reason lol>DotA
Ppl like easier things.
This is what happens when you do it the way they did. Everybody interested in the game attempted to get the closed beta.
Now it hits the market, and it gets the proper look through by everyone. Of course it's going to be trashed. There's a lot of things that needs to be adjusted yet - but we'll see how much Riot is going to give a rats arse, because most games seem to be out for a year or two and then the developers just don't care anymore. Remember the long period of zero relevant CS updates (2 years or so if not 3), anyone? Yeah.
I dislike the game too, albeit I haven't rated it anywhere. I just won't play it again, because it didn't suit what I wanted.
I mean its not the best game but a 3 is kinda harsh
I‘d give it like a 6/10 even though the map design is abysmal its still decent
Valorant fanboys too delusional to accept the fact that their game is trash.
To be completely fair, everyone is comparing the game to CS:GO. I don't think that's a fair review.
Average game. 4/10. I'd say.
Too many abilities imo.
Aiming is OKayish.
Sniper & Scout is real bad in this game lol. Very random.
Also same weapons for both the teams. very stupid.
& that silly map with three bombsites lol and that one with portals. Makes it real easy for T side.
no ranked at launch
almost every game i played has been no comms/trolls/afk/leavers/team attackers
been overall a shit show. nobody wants to take it serious due to no ranked, and im not the only one that thinks this, they need to get ranked out ASAP to keep the playerbase otherwise this will be really bad, lets not talk about the skill difference in unranked, some people can have 20 kills and some have 2 its just stupid
Like always, people can't stand playing a game, which is not as they want it to be. You like R6? Play R6. You like CS:GO? Play CS:GO. You don't like Quake Champion? Don't play Quake Champion. As simple as that. Why do people need to say that smth is shit if they simply don't like it? Arguments are everything, feelings are no arguments.
In my opinion, the gameplay is clearly close to CS:GO (which is not bad). The pace is not that slow but I come from Quake 3 Engine so my opinion might be biased. Having different powers/classes for each character is not Overwatched based, it's in a lot of games already (RTCW, ET, Dirty Bomb, R6, Paladins, even thne recent Curcible). I don't really get the spray system (even with the snipers), especially in long-range but I only played 5 scrims.
Anyway, I will give this game a chance and play a couple of evenings with friends.
However, if I have a real problem, it would be the lack of replay system. I can't get how Riot sees that as an unnecessary feature. Surely the guy who decided that never played any video games at a decent level.
EDIT: Plus, same problem as in CS:GO, no vocal testing. I don't get how you allow people to use their mic without being able to test it. Stupid af
played it. boring af after 6 rounds
Of course those user reviews are morons from the csgo, cod etc. Communities just hate for the sake of hating lol
Played the beta. Pretty underwhelming tbh. Maps are rather small with a huge chunk being cut off before the round even starts. Gun play, overall movement is rather bad too. Abilities can be interesting but they are usually just used 90% before they even matter and you end up just wasting them and going in dry.
The hate reminds me so much of when CSGO came out lol.
Seems like I'm banned by Richard "They're mentally ill!!!!" Lewis :/
I don't think it's a very good game, but neither do I think that it's a 0/10.
I'd give it something like a 5/10; it has some good ideas, but some of the abilities are just ridicilous and the maps are simply terrible.
it was good at start, since everything new is interesting, but after playing 10 games it got really boring, way too slow for my taste, i just hate when you can walk to important choke points before buy time is over, imagine in cs go before round starts ct players are already at mid, banana, long short, whatever, they took important parts of map and as T you are already fucked up. Maps feel really huge for such a slow movement, rotations are too slow
You have been blocked from performing this action.
they broke the game even more after adding the new agent Reyna. that mf is overpowered as fuck.
those reviews are insanely unfair.
It's a mediocre game so expected.
better wait for critics reviews. User score comprised of "0"s if the kid doesn't like the game and "10"s if he likes it mixed with only a few adequte scores
are you the kind of people that doesnt even play a game if there isnt 500k+ playing it too? just do what you find its fun, if you dont like valorant dont play it then, you dont need metacrit to know that.
Oh wow like anyone stop playing or like something because of "metacritic"
insecure cs fans trashing superior fps shooter, not surprising, valorant will rise
The maps are terrible, super tight, so many angles, and getting map control isn't important.
I also don't like the spraying mechanics, and how you freeze when you get tagged.
I would give it a 5/10
i'd still give it a 6 even tho i dont want to play it
slomo ugly budget cs change my mind
Imagine caring about metacritic...
I'm playing 10 hours per day and having fun, that's what matters, LUL
mom get the camera im on second screenshot omegalul
dogshit game no one cares i said it was gonna die before it was even closed beta delete this budget overwatch csgo mobile looking ass game down.
"Useless anti-cheat "
"Dont play Valorant because its install Riot Vanguard which is a big open door for China on your PC!"
I bet this guy is American
Years ago it was discovered that the american government spied on our government, it's even funny that americans are afraid of chinese spies LUUUULLLL
Tbh 90% of these reviews look like something that mad cs go fans would say
pretty fun for 2 weeks then it gets boring tho the only boring aspect for me at least is the skill :
no spray patterns
too slow of a movement
bullet stops you too much
maps are one dimensional and too claustrophobic
THESE ASPeCTS RUIN THE GAME SO MUCH CAUSE I BELIEVE THE GAME ITSELF HAD A HUGE POTENTIAL just the devs made it too easy and plain and simple
