Monster Hunter World bombarded with negative reviews, but the game has nothing to do with it
The disappointment of the players can manifest itself in many different ways, in some cases even very questionable. This is what happened to the poor Monster Hunter World on Steam, which several years after its release and a few million copies sold later, was "punished" by gamers for a "sin" it did not commit.

Last December 3rd Monster Hunter World collected only 17 negative reviews, compared to hundreds and hundreds of positive opinions. A physiological trend, which however precipitated on December 4th, when for no apparent reason 1,092 inches towards it fell, to which another 405 were added the day after. A quick glance into the reviews section immediately revealed that almost all of the negative opinions come from Chinese players

What happened? Well, the reason is obvious. Chinese users did not like a joke, considered racist and of dubious taste, contained in the Monster Hunter film signed by Paul W.S. Anderson and starring his wife Milla Jovovich, who in the Far East has already arrived in cinemas. In one of the scenes an American soldier utters the line "What kind of knees are these? Chi-knees", a play on words that works very well in English, but which in Italian loses its effectiveness ("What kind of knees are these? "). The joke, which you can hear below, refers to a well-known Anglo-Saxon saying judged racist and offensive, namely "Chinese, Japanese, dirty knees - look at these?" , also spoken by Peter Griffin in an episode of Family Guy.

We can understand the annoyance of Chinese players, but the point is that Mosnter Hunter World, which has nothing to do with the film, has absolutely nothing to do with it. Luckily Steam, thanks to the tools at its disposal, has isolated the negative reviews by eliminating them from the calculation for the general evaluation. Capcom, for its part, has issued an official statement to clarify that, although it is not involved in the production of the film, it will bring the matter to the attention of those responsible.
