Jawa is like the UN Peacekeeping force of gaming.
Gaaawwwwd bless you
The originals consistently got average review scores in the 90s, this is a huge drop, something has gone seriously wrong with this game.
Considering how many great games we've seen release over the past couple of months, this first really deserve a look.
The original game wasn't without its detractors though. Edge gave it 7/10 and from what I remember most of its criticism were fairly valid.
Looking at the original game's meta critic page, a lot of those high scores are from sites I've never heard of, or ones like the Official Xbox Magazine declaring it the greatest game they've ever played.
Like, you're making this out to be a massive fall from grace for a franchise, but it's gone from a metacritic average of 91 to 75. It's hardly been going around punching babies in the face.
Not quite sure why you're determined to hammer into it quite so much.
