If the 'why' is why its so bad, there's many reasons, too many actually but i will give you a few. 1: The game has no status, what does that mean? very simple; Your choices doesn't matter, the results are all preset, example; in other games when you start a fight with someone and you choose something like 'punching the enemy' the game will go trough your status for that specific choice, to see if you are going to succeed or not, this game doesn't have that, if you lose a fight, you are ALWAYS GOING TO LOSE, there's only one result for basically all the choices. 2: The game forces you to choose specific 'routes', example; in the beginning of the game (chap 3-4? don't remember) you can ask for help from 3 supernatural groups, the witches, the vamps and the hunters, here's the problem, every choice of 'faction' has a companion attached to it, SO, if you are romancing character B (from the vamps route) you are forced to take the vamp route, if you don't, you are going to lose scenes with your RO, this is specially annoying cuz' you (at least i didnt) will not like all the characters, you will like only a few, if you hate character A, and you choose to go with the witches, you are automatically going to have to 'put up with' a character you don't like, just for the sake of a route you like (in this case the witches) 3: Nearly all the characters are 'stereotypes' you have the boy scout, the funny one, the cold one, etc. The game also tries to force some characters in many annoying ways, example; Marco (i think thats his name) asked me if i wanted to 'netflix and chill' with him, i said i was not interested in him, next day he goes again 'do you want to go drink something' implying a date, i refused again, some time later he sends you a text, asking you to dinner or smt, i was like, wtf? NO is no, just stop. 4: The MC personality is not really moldable, he will react to many events of the past/present in ways that has nothing to do with you, so if you wanna play a specific type of character, it will be really hard, example; you wanna play a more cold MC? very hard, MC is crying and whining in many parts of the novel, that's just his 'normal' reaction, without your prompt, THATS GOING TO HAPPEN. Honestly, i could keep going for a long time, the plot has many stupid parts and a rushed/unsatisfactory ending, the choice are also a problem, many times the game gave me, like, 5 choices, and i didn't want to choose any of them, whats more, let me think... Ah, yeah, theres also some super cringy parts, like, an alpha from another pack going 'My pronouns is they/them, if you dont' use them i will get mad' HAHAHA really stupid. TLDR: The game sucks on the same level as my English. this is MY OPINION.
