Suicide Squad User Score Drops Below 4 On Metacritic

Expert Verified By

600 Negative Reviews on Metacritic Already!

Story Highlights
  • Suicide Squad is now being review-bombed on Metacritic.
  • 600 users have left negative reviews on the platform.
  • The game’s user score has dropped below 4/10 due to these reviews.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League has been out for nearly a week. Eight years after Rocksteady Studio wrapped up the Batman Arkham trilogy, the studio’s latest project has received less than stellar critical reception.

While Steam user reviews have shown promise, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League has become the target of review bombings on Metacritic.

Why it matters: Metacritic has been criticized for its inability to handle review bombings. This trend has been observed for many years, yet it keeps showing up again and again for new releases.

With a total of 984 reviews, the game’s current user score sits at 3.8/10. Among the total reviews, over 600 are negative, with hundreds of users leaving scores like 0/10 and 1/10 to express their frustration over Rocksteady Studio’s pivot to live service.

Most of the negative reviews have compared the game to the excellent Batman Arkham trilogy. They point to receptive gameplay, an open world without much substance, and poor boss fights as the biggest downsides of the game.

Some have highlighted the live service focus of the looter shooter. While it can be fun when playing with friends, the gear and customization offered do not enhance the gameplay, according to these reviews.

Others have also been upset with this game becoming one of the last pieces of media to showcase Kevin Conroy’s work as Batman.

For all its flaws, Suicide Squad is far from a 0 or 1/10. Most critical reviews state that Rocksteady Studio’s latest work is mediocre or above average, so these user scores highlight a trend that has long plagued platforms like Metacritic.

A game like Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League was subject to negativity months before its release. Amid negative previews and social media discourse, many had already made up their mind before the game was released, making it easy to see this review bombing coming from a mile away.
