It could perhaps be argued that: "If you for some reason bought this game, remember that it is possible to get a refund." is one of those reviews that you should hope avoids your product at all costs. In the case of The Culling 2, however, sheer hope was simply not enough.
In what is almost certainly a record of some sort, The Culling 2 was released via Steam on 10th of July, peaked at 249 concurrent players an hour after the launch, and is now, not two days later, sitting comfortably at 2-3 concurrent players, tops.
This is not us being figurative, mind - The Culling 2 literally does not have more than just a few simultaneous players at all.
It gets better, too! The Culling 2 has collected about 160 user reviews since its inception to the market, with a staggering 12% of those being positive. The quote from the beginning of the article constitutes one of the negative reviews, scrolling through which has proven to be fairly amusing - certainly more so than playing the game, if these players are to be believed.
The main critique seems to focus on the fact that the core of The Culling 2 has shifted from intense, layered melee combat to thinly-veiled gun porn, which makes for a massive change in direction compared to the game's predecessor.
The Culling 2 is not a fully-priced title, but even $19.99 seems to have been too much of an entry cost for the vast majority of people who have tried it out, especially for those who enjoyed the first game's rather unique atmosphere and mechanics.
Seems to be safe to say that the game has made for little more than a trully impressive flop, but who knows - perhaps the developers can turn this problem around on its head. Somehow.
