Metacritic Refuses To Pull Negative Review That GameSpot Admits Was Factually Inaccurate

If you head on over to the Metacritic page for Natural Selection 2, you might notice something strange. Of the seven reviews listed, only one is scored below an 80.

The story is too old to be commented.

Man Metacritic is such a joke... That's really sucky of that dude to give a false review like that. Oh well, at least it didn't hurt sales, seems it did really well regardless. :]

''Metacritic Refuses To Pull Negative Reviews That Are Mostly Factually Inaccurate''

One thing I don't quite get is how metacritic decides to add reviews to a certain game, take Resistance 3 for instance it received a perfect score from G4TV, a major site, yet the review was never included, the publications from which the reviews are added, should always remain consistent, otherwise this should be regarded as score manipulation.

I just don't take metacritic seriously anymore.
They accept some really crappy, poorly written and poorly judged and biased reviews and usually refuse others like the g4tv one you mentioned.

Metacritic is the Kotaku of review aggregates.

why did gamespot publish the review in the first place?

Because the author of the first review just sucked at the game. He barely played it. There were ridiculous amount of inaccuracies in his review. I dont understand why he's a reviewer when he doesnt seem to actually review the game. It's more like he based his reviews off a hateful forum.

Why doesn't Kevin VanOrd pull his own review of Duke Nukem Forever? A 3/10. Gimme a break. Plus the review was loaded with inaccuracies! I had never been so angry over a review in my life.

Another reason why people should just stop paying attention to metacritic. On a side note I heard great things about Natural Selection 2. Hopefully their will be a sale on the game on black friday, or cyber monday. I have been keeping an eye out for this game.
