Orion: Dino Horde dev hits back at allegations of Metacritic manipulation

Orion: Dino Beatdown has been replaced by Orion: Dino Horde on Metacritic - but its Metascore has carried over.

Yesterday Eurogamer brought you the news that gamers had complained about Orion: Dino Horde's separate listing on the review aggregation website amid claims it was nothing more than a “re-skin” of the critically mauled Beatdown and thus not deserving of a second chance.

Developer Spiral Game Studio has rejected these claims, insisting Horde is both an update and a sequel to Beatdown.

The new listing for Horde on Metacritic has a 36 out of 100 Metascore based on five reviews of Beatdown from last year. (Orion: Dino Horde, PC)
