It has been barely a week since the launch of FAUG and the popularity of the gaming is taking a nosedive. As of writing, the game has a rating of 3.5 stars on the Google Play Store, with 4,68,278 reviews. This drop is quite evident when one takes into consideration that the game had a rating of 3.9 within a day of launch.
How FAUG competitors fare
This low-rating hits even harder when one takes into account competing games like Garena Free Fire and Call of Duty: Mobile. Both these games have ratings of 4.3 and 4.5 stars, respectively. It should also be noted that both these games have a much higher number of reviews as they have been available for years.
What users say about FAUG
The poor rating of FAUG boils down to the fact that the hype surrounding the game was almost palpable before launch. But the final product was not up to the level players expected.
One Google user, Neelabh Chatterjee, gave the game a rating of 2 stars and commented, “Expectations and the reality are different things. But even so there has to be some things which must be done properly. Presently the game does not have guns. Ok I get it. But if you are going to go for a hand-to-hand combat it still must be better than this. Moves and sequences include mashing on a single button. Block works like 1 out 5 times. When in combat there are weird glitches like fighting direction suddenly changes. Not to mention that parts of the game are repetitive. Hope it improves.” As of writing, this comment was marked by 239 users as helpful.
Even in our review, we noted that while the idea behind the game was good, the execution was lacking. We found movement to be quite limited, while gameplay was quite repetitive to say the least. You can check out our detailed review here.
nCore Games also plans to release a multiplayer component to the game. However, before that, the developers will definitely need to improve the core gameplay. We have also jotted down five things the devs can do to make the game better. Click here to take a look at that.
