Bethesda's online RPG has received a considerable number of negative reviews since the game's release. User rating on Metacritic currently stands at 2.8 for PlayStation 4 and 3.2 for PC as players call out Bethesda for a messy release.

Fallout 76 will probably end up as one of the most disappointing games of the year and most of the players on Metacritic appear to share that opinion. Bethesda's online RPG is getting ravaged since release with more than 1400 negative reviews on both PC and PS4 versions. Xbox One users are obviously not gentle either with a 2.3 score based on 315 ratings.

Most of the scores are straight zero's, which is probably a harsh way to tell Bethesda your thoughts but we get their point as Fallout 76 looks pretty underwhelming with its poor graphics and questionable design. Add numerous bugs and it's one huge pot of angry fans bashing your product.

Some players are describing the game as Fallout with no story, no NPCs and little to nothing to do. Others are calling out Bethesda for greedy decisions that buried the Fallout franchise. Those who are a little less angry explained the low score reviews with some cons which mostly include a lifeless and empty world, bugs, terrible PVP and a confusing UI.

There is also a bunch of angry PC players who point out that the game is not available on Steam which was one of the reasons for earlier backlash. Some PC players have also experienced problems that would prevent them from uninstalling the beta until they purchase the game. You can find more on that issue . Also, you don't want to miss Power Armor glitch, as it will go down as one of the most bizarre Fallout 76 glitches out there.

Fallout 76 was Bethesda's step into something new but it's turning out to be a poor decision. Who knows if things would've been different if the game only didn't look and play so bad. Maybe it would be a satisfying Fallout experience regardless of the different path Bethesda took, but at the moment review bombing and community backlash are pretty much the only types of direct feedback they have.
