The former states the game feels ‘absolutely awful’, while the latter is dissatisfied with the overpowered nature of certain elements.

Common Pain Points

Shared grievances among the game’s critics seem to be about payments for skins, overhaul of graphics, and the overpowered medallions. ‘GodzillaGamer953’ even calls this chapter ‘borderline unfair’, while ‘Haunting_Benefit4662’ notes a significant drop in player count.
