This website. I tell you. AI written drivel. Don't click. They have a shocking track record. It's either paid shilling or negative click bait.

I mean sure whatever floats your boat casual scrubs. I bet these people can’t even access the DLC.

Let's be honest it's not that. It's idiots voting it down because it's too difficult for them

Too many 10s being thrown around, wouldn't really surprise me if there's something to criticize that isn't mentioned in these reviews. This whole "masterpiece" era we're going through really needs to stop. Also is people are criticizing the difficulty, there's probably a few valid reasons. The difficulty spiked once you reached the mountains in the base game, to unfun levels to me.

People being enthusiastic about things, how dare they.

There's enthusiasm and then there's blind fanboyism. I love many games, I'm not blind to their faults. Handing out perfect scores without any criticism only serves to create blind consumerism, which is why this industry is in the state that it's in.

I don't think most see 10/10 as perfection. It just means the reviewer loved it, that they found it special. Doesn't mean it can't have flaws.

I still remember when MGS4 got a 10 and how the community reacted and there was chatter if a game ever should get 10 and now most AAA games get that

not this shit again

If you don't want some challenging bosses that might take some time to learn and beat them, play another game. They're not gonna make the game for you thankfully.

It appears the difficulty did not align with the player's expectations. If the game is too difficult for them, then playing another game is not a real answer since they spent money on the DLC. That would be like throwing money away. I am also assuming the people who are complaining about the difficulty also completed the original game.

If we lived in a perfect world, then refund options would be available to those players and they could simply move on to another game but since this is not the case, their only recourse is to either learn the strategies to overcome the difficulty or complain with the hopes of seeing some change.
