The PC version of Wild Hearts has received mixed reviews from players, despite the fact that many people are playing it on consoles and engaging in some monster-slaying action. During the game’s Early Access stage, it was noted that Wild Hearts was experiencing various performance-related problems that had a visible impact on the experience.
In response to inquiries concerning the PC performance of Wild Hearts, Omega Force explained that a CPU bottleneck is to blame and that a fix is on the way. Yet, that hasn’t stopped people from visiting the game’s Steam page and leaving a bad review.
Despite receiving favourable reviews from a variety of sources, Wild Hearts presently has Mostly Negative user reviews on Steam, with many of them blaming the game’s performance troubles as the root of the problem.
Many people are advising individuals who are interested in the game to wait until the next patch fixes the CPU bottleneck because they believe the game is currently practically unplayable. While some claim the game won’t even start when they try to boot it up, others claim they are enjoying the game but are using it to criticise how other games launch.
To me, it seems a little harsh to nearly ruin a game’s user review rating over a problem that was known before release and would be resolved in less than a week.
But, rather than burying an official statement on the game’s subreddit of all places, Omega Force probably ought to have made an effort to explain these difficulties to its audience. However, if you are one of the people having these problems and are considering giving the game a bad review, you might want to hold off until the developers release a patch. Go bonkers if things are still horrible after that.
