Fall Guys Gets Review Bombed, Then Un-Bombed

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout released today, and thanks to a successful beta, lots of people were excited to play it. So many, in fact, that the game has been experiencing server issues, which makes it difficult to play and enjoy.

The server issues made users understandably frustrated, but rather than wait for the issues to get sorted, some bombarded the game with negative reviews on Steam

We’re currently being review-bombed on Steam… ☹️

We’re working really hard to get running smoothly for SO MANY players!

We know it’s super frustrating, but if you could hold off from negatively reviewing – Until you get chance to play the game, it would really help us out ♥️

After posting about the review-bombing situation on Twitter, something unusually nice happened. Fans counteracted the negativity with positivity, bringing the game’s overall user score back into “mostly positive” territory.

Wow, you are seriously the best!

You’ve positive-bombed our review score back to Mostly Positive! I didn’t know that was a thing?

Thank you so much for your belief in what we’re building here!

Hopefully server issues will continue to improve!

While this may seem like a feel-good story from one angle, the whole situation also highlights questions surrounding user reviews, like how they can be effectively implemented to inform others and share experiences, rather than being wielded like weapons.

And speaking of Fall Guys reviews, we have one in the works, so check back for that in the coming days.
