GP Editor discusses the divide between review scores for Diablo III on Metacritic. Are the users giving low scores just being immature, or do they actually raise a valid point that Blizzard would do well to pay attention to?
i pity the fool who read metacritic users reviews.
Very true. This is not a game that deserves a 0 or 1 score.
Is the out-lash purely because people couldn't play it on day one? If so, that's a little sad. However, allowing players to be able to play offline would've been nice.
Not really cause they're giving the game a 0 over something that can be fixed. That's like those people who gave COD MW3 a 0 just cause they don't like the COD series even though i'm not a big fan either, i don't go on review sites to hate.
Metacritic site need to go down and never go up again. It's a waist of time and has lost ALL credability becaus of raging nerds. To bad actualy, a system for the consumers destroyed by the consumers.....
The only credibility ruined is the one of the raging nerds themselves. And perhaps the people going to MC and actually look at user review scores. It's like going to financial sites and making your investments based on the anonymous comments at the bottom of the page....
I bet 90% of them are xbox gamers with no lives.
Or maybe it has something to do with news like this... http://www.gamefront.com/bi... oh, and this... http://eu.blizzard.com/en-g...
of course they do, the game game was broken on release, and all the issues they have had up to this day, anyone that discounts the reviews are in denial you only need look at the EU/US forums to see the game still has serious issues, because of the retarded way they designed it, but that is what happens when you mix wow gameplay with Starcraft 2 online only bullshit, instead of making a proper diablo title that would be credit to d2 with online/offline gameplay and NO auction house but no blizzard as always trying get in on the buy/sell ripping off your gamers by wanting 15% cut from the auction house from what people are selling that's even if the items people are buying decide to show up on there characters, characters that are losing all there items and gold.. yeah the metric score they got is right, i am surprised it actually got 88
Actually I think Metacritic has valuable information. Diablo might have a ton of pissed off people saying nay things about a game, but that is exactly what I want to see before I drop $60.00 on a game. And most of the stories are pointing at D3, the other thousand reviews are not that bad.
It doesn't matter, the game probably has sold millions of copies and will continue to do so in the future regardless of what angry users on metacritic write.
