However, let's ignore this fact.
Solasta having less reviews than BG3 doesn't mean that much. 3000 is still a pretty good sample size. In fact, even having only 500-1000 reviews would be fairly representative of the true population. So yes, let us ignore this irrelevant fact. Sample size links:
https://www.surveymonkey.com/mp/sample-size-calculator/ Population of 10 million, confidence 99%, margin of error 5% gives sample size of 666

This is both an exaggeration and a strawman. Reading the most recent 100 negative reviews for BG3, maybe 1 or 2 of them are negative because it's not a BG2 clone. And that's reading their reviews in the worst light.
Most reviews are negative because of bugs, the fact that it's a full price EA game, high miss chances, too much DOS3 and not enough D&D (D&D, not BG1 or 2), bad pathfinding, too much micromanaging of party+items, the pace of combat, UI, controls, etc. Which are all (except for the whining about it being full price) are reasonable complaints.
