Diablo 4 launched to mixed reviews, but things have recently changed dramatically. Players began an investigation and suspected Blizzard of manipulation
Blizzard recently launched a free Diablo 4 promotion on Steam. Against this background, the rating has increased significantly.
Diablo 4 started with mixed reviews and the quality of the game is questionable, so the sharp increase in ratings raised some doubts. Players started digging around and noticed that the game received several identical reviews on the same day.
Upon closer examination of the accounts, it turned out that the authors of the reviews often have several shareware games on their account, and someone has played 1600 hours in the last 2 weeks. There was an assumption that these were just bots to boost the ratings.
