Helldivers 2 User Reviews

After being utterly bombarded with negative user reviews over on Steam, Helldivers 2 is now enjoying a return to normalcy on that front. As tracked by SteamDB, the co-op shooter has amassed over 200,000 positive user reviews since Sony decided to reverse its PSN requirement decision just a couple of days ago. That's almost enough of a reversal to put things right.

Helldivers 2 now sits at a 'Mostly Positive' rating overall, even if the recent review period still shows up as 'Mixed'. Given that the game was hit with around 300,000 negative user reviews last week — a truly massive mobilisation — it's one hell of a turnaround, and it's likely that the positive ratings will continue to rain down over the coming days.

Ultimately, this is good news for developer Arrowhead Studios. The outfit really didn't deserve to bear the brunt of the backlash, having crafted such a fantastic title. Sony, meanwhile, will be reassessing its options. The company stated that it's "still learning what is best for PC players" in its official statement.
