Seems like most of the bad user reviews are about the presence of loot boxes that are purchasable. People don’t seem to like having that option available in a single player game that they have bought. Seems reasonable, but I also see reviews that say there’s no need to buy those loot boxes and that the game is likely more fun without purchasing them. The bad reviews all seem to give the game a score of 0, which skews the average a fair bit, and I doubt the actual gameplay deserves a 0. So I guess my question is how much fun is the game without the loot boxes, as I’m unlikely to buy them anyway.
And I should also say that I don’t mind fortnite’s system of paying for the game (for early access, with the idea that it will be free to play eventually) and still being able to buy vbucks if you want. I’m enjoying the heck out of fortnite without spending money on extra vbucks, but I don’t mind that some people have spent small fortunes and are way ahead of me.
