We are literally one day away from the launch of The prophesiedsince its premiere is the January 24, the thing is that this game has had a quite controversial narrative, starting with the fact that the demo was criticized a lot, to the point that Square Enix had to release an update to revive it or that many gaming media did not receive copies to be able to review the game. match. It seems that all these unfortunate events have culminated in average reviews for the video game, which indicate that the world is empty, the narrative is flat and there is no “magic”.

Currently, on Metacritic the game has a score of 68, where mixed reviews predominate, which are currently 37, while 22 are positive and 3 negative, which is neither good nor bad, since it is a mixture. Meristation and Vandal, who rated the game out of 70, share the opinion that it is an “entertaining game”, but the activities, the dialogues, the open world are not satisfactory, leaving a game “without magic”. The game demo was criticized for poor performance, but more importantly, a huge but empty world, and what’s worse, according to reviews this stays the same.
On the other hand, Dexerto, the medium that has given one of the lowest scores, with a 40 said that “while Forspoken offers a solid combat system and a variety of challenging bosses, it fails to create a narrative thanks to shallow characters and sometimes excruciating dialogue.” In addition to this opinion, many conclude that Frey fails to win over the player and ends up being a rather “tasteless” game.
Since Square Enix began promoting the game, it has been in controversy, either by the fans themselves, who criticized a gameplay due to Frey’s dialogue that was too forced and somewhat cheesy, up to now with the reviews that the video game has received. In any case, from tomorrow we will know if this negatively affects sales of the game or not.
