That Gaming Site writes: "The latest victim in the fanboys "metacritic war" is Halo Wars, possibly one of the biggest causalities of the user ratings fanboy wars on Metacritic."
But still.. 0.8? LOL! Go Nasim !
Haha you stole my comment i was coming in here to say Go Nasim too lol
This is still going on? What is this supposed to do now? Lower user rating, wow, not like that really matters. People are just flat out pathetic now.
this happened months ago, because killzone 2 got rated down first, ps3 fanboys backfired...so really its kz2 that was a victim
Or some other exclusive you just don't know.
At some point the admins at METACRITIC has to share the blame for this. The crap has been going on way to long for the to not have a handle on this. Perhaps they should pull their heads out of their a$$es and require logon or membership to be able to vote on their site. At least that way they can tell who are making these stupid votes from both fanboy camps. They are always commenting on how this is wrong yet that still allow it to happen. Metacritic is loosing credibility in my book.
why won't metacritic just erase all user scores?
@1.4 Hmm the of HW 0.8 to 6.3 of KZ.... Im pretty sure we know who the real culprits are here. and anyway what are we 5, are we still using the " He started It" excuse.
I like the Halo series, and although this game isn't made by Bungie, from what I've seen, they do justice to the series. But for people to shoot it down because of some stupid console war is insane. But I don't blame Gamers, they are only using the tools presented to them; I blame that joke site metacritic. They need to take control of their site instead of letting gamers crap on a game, let the score post on N4G or another gonzo site and then make another headline like "BAD GAMERS, BAAAAD!" just to get hits for their site. And yes, they're doing it for hits because they could disable GAMES THAT AREN'T EVEN OUT YET at least until the game comes out. Then, to allow gamers to post, make them write a 1000 word review. But that's just me; you know, the guy that wants to see games on any console being treated fairly.
That is what happens when you spend all your waking hours in your grandma's basement lying naked next to a blowup sheep. It's inevitable that you'll have a lot of free time on your hands since without any resemblance of a job you can't afford to actually buy a console let alone any games. The demo was pretty good by BTW.
So sad... I don't understand why they don't just take off the user reviews anyway since it's just fanboy breeding grounds. Even if someone puts a legit user review they will have to weed through all the fanboys. I thought though they made it so you can't give user reviews until a game is released though? If that's true then this has probably been like that for a while. I still think they should just completely remove it.
http://tinyurl.com/8ra6ja Article titled "Attention Metacritic Users, You're Immature"
gears of war 2 was the original victim, not killzone 2.
actually LBP was the first victim. Then Gears 2. then resistance 2 and so on and so forth until we get to killzone and halo wars.
Actually nobody knows where it originally started...all we know is how big it has gotten. You can go back to the original Gears and see issues....but like I said, nobody can say what started it, all we know is the mess that it is now. @eagle21 Be careful with your out the box thinking....I share your same sentiments, but some people are unable to comprehend that there are individuals who are not "fanboys" and will just instigate stuff for entertainment value....especially since they really have nothing to lose.
This is still going on? What is this supposed to do now? Lower user rating, wow, not like that really matters. People are just flat out pathetic now. -Rabid I say, they're rabid!
LOL,Halo Wars will still be an average game though.
The goofy Sony fanboys are at it again. They started this with Halo 3 and have kept at it. It really is pathetic, but doesn't surprise me with people that back a last place console this generation. Regardless, RTS games should only be played on computers with mouse/keyborad. But this just goes to show how bitter Sony fanboys are about their console being dead last place.
this is dumb that people take the time of day to go do that lol.. we all know what happened hear i would not even give 50 cent bulletproof a 0.8/10 tho some people like it i thought it sucked lolhaha. thats ridiculous..i don't own a 360 but i'm looking forward to playing this over a friends. And how are people doing reviews before they even play the game like the new 50 cent game blood on the sand game i hope a good game and people are already talking crap about it..THERE IS NOT EVEN A DEMO OUT YET SO STFU
the user score without the fanboy scores had to be below average, cause how in the heck could it be .8? And contrary to disagrees, millions of halo fans are turned off to rts games or won't buy this.
How old are you? "you started it" Two wrongs don't make a right.
you are correct sir, but I was talking about when we first started to notice it. but it doesn't much matter really now does it?
It is pretty much guaranteed that any first party, or any game that could make the 360 or Ps3 will be attacked by the fanboys! The good thing is, no one cares about their opinions and most people just go with the official reviews. When I go to metacritic, I almost forget those reviews are there.
I think Too Human caught it too, so it was back before then. I think MGS4 caught some for a few days as well. It was definitely before killzone and LBP, and it's happened on both sides so much it doesn't really matter who started it any more. Kind of like Gaza.
This isn't really news, it's been like that for a few months, if I recall.
Yeah every exclusive game has this happen to it and the site leaves it that way cause it the only way they can get hits. Hell it be easy to fix just have people enter there gaming tags and if they dont have one dont let in to that part of the site
It has been there for a few months. Also, Metacritic changed it to only be able to vote until after release.
Most folks on N4G are pretty slow =P
dont approve this.
0.8, lmfao @ Halo Wars
Because a bunch of PStards obviously had nothing better to do with their life than continually rate the game 0/10 then obviously the game is garbage! I swear, some humans still haven't fully evolved from monkeys like the rest of us have.
was this in response to the edge review seriously go attack FEAR since it got a higher score on that crap mag.
Like people care about Metacritic's user score. Those who do it are really pathetic. Why waste so much time on something that nobody really cares about? You can't never trust user scores, because many who give their ratings, are fanboys and hate the console or the game.
just take out the damn feature from the site
This just shows the life of a PS3 fanboy.
Yes because 360 fanboys are so high and noble and are filled of life-experience and morals.
Says the guy who's never off this site talking sh!t about the ps3. You? Life? Nah!
All the overwhelmingly positive Killzone 2 articles get no more than 40-50 posts in the comment section. The recently added article about Edge magazine giving Killzone 2 a 7/10 has, as of now, over 400 comments. 400 COMMENTS!!! All those comments come from delusional MS d*ck-heads like you who now act like Edge magazine has the definitive say in the industry. All the countless other 9.5's and 10's for Killzone 2 don't seem to matter now, because MS peter-poppers like you will blindly follow the few sources like Edge who like to spew Bullsh*t just for publicity. All those comments in the Edge magazine Killzone 2 score article is what REALLY displays the life of all you Microsoft Lackeys.
Awww did I hit a nerve :(
Are you brother of PP BLUR?
LOL! Seriously Blur, is that the best rebuttal you got??? That in itself proves how F'n stupid you are. I'm actually surprised you didn't come back and say "Your Momma"
...And that just shows how dumb sensitive xbox fanboys are. THEY'RE LOOKING AT THE WRONG SCORE! lol
No just stating facts
Started with LBP, then went to gears of war, then to killzone 2, now to halo wars. But.. who cares?
And it's guaranteed to happen with just about every other exclusive this year. We all need to just move on and ignore this garbage.
correction: started longer ago than that. It happened to Halo 3 also
But it didn't happen to Gears of War 1. So it started in 2007 then. I'm sure this kind of stuff has been going on since the dawn of consoles. The Metacritic thing is just a big deal because the site is supposed to be very reliable. No one pays attention to user reviews, though, so it really doesn't matter. If it's such a huge deal, they should just get rid of user scores.
Well, started to a point where people started recognizing it. The first time i had heard of such thing was back when they reported about it on LBP.
It was happening to mgs4 as well, not just on metacritic, but on any site you can post a comment/review about a game on (Even on the bestbuy website, well before the game was even released, these "insiders" that all happen to get a first hand glimpse of the game to tell everyone how horrible it is). It's nothing new, but is very very sad that someone could care so much about a "console war", that they try to trick others to not buy and enjoy the games on the other systems.
Gamers are worse than crackheads.
You guys are kind of late with this one aren't you? I think this was first discovered a month ago.
What pathetic morons live in this world.
Is this really news at this point ? I think we all know that every big exclusive on the PS3 and 360 are going to get this treatment from the fanboys. What I don't understand is why it never balances out. You'd think the fanboys what up-rate their own exclusives and down-rate the competitor's, but they all seem to be forgetting that they can rate the games of their own interest too. Anyway, we all know this has been happening, so... whatever. Not like anybody actually takes those metacritic user reviews seriously.
I am a halo fanboy but I am not going to rate a game til I play the actual game.
But yeah, it's dumb when people rate games before they have played them. No matter how great a game looks or how good reviews are looking, you cannot know for sure how you will like a game until you play it.
If you really liked the game your to busy playing it, to stop your game, get on your PC, go to the site, register, and post a review.
I think your mistaken the word Fanboy and Fan. Take this test to determine if your a Fanboy or a Fan. Question 1. If you had the money would you buy both consoles (YES/NO) Question 2. Do you care about console sales and beat you chest when your consoles sales the most (YES/NO) Question 3. Does Nintendo Wii suck and should burn in hell (YES/NO) Question 4. Would you be happy if Microsoft and Sony Merged (Yes/No) Question 5. Do you feel like you have to defend Sony or Microsoft every time something negative is said about them (Yes/No) Results Your a FANBOY if you answer was: (Q1 NO) (Q2 Yes) (Q3 Yes) (Q4 NO) (Q5 YES) Halochampian, I will go ahead and say your a big fan of halo not a fan boy because i no that you would play Killzone 2 and Metal Gear solid 4.
Yea. You are right. I noticed I put fanboy instead of Fan, but it was too late for me to edit it. I have played Metal Gear Solid 4 and the Killzone 2 Beta.
Ah Fan Boys show their true colors with this & that stupid web site
Well done, whoever did this. I'm sure you're the same kind of people who cry foul when Edge or whomever didn't quite give Killzone 2 the score you were expecting (which for some people, anything less than 10/10 is a crime of biblical proportions). Do you know what you've done now? Your claim of "the media is biased!" may once have been justified, but at least you could rely on the masses to give honest votes and let that be the real judge. Now you've taken that and destroyed it, now there's no way to out rightly PROVE that KZ2 wasn't too heavily criticised, you've undermined the whole system. Well done.
While I would never review a game before I played it... ...you can't say they're the only one's doing it. Look at ANY big game on any platform. They all have low user scores. Fanboys are on both sides of this "war". It's just sad, isn't it?
I never meant to imply they were the only ones doing it, I was simply implying that the ones doing it have done nothing to help their "cause", only hamper it.
Same sh!t different pile :/ lol
Just like MGS4,R2,LBP & Killzone 2 right? Yeah.360 fanboys are saints.
that Halo Wars was a target after Killzone 2 or some PS3 game was "attacked" first, so Wow, Mature micosoft fanboys.
Both sides are retards.
@ 2.1 and 2.2 Both sides are just as stupid, but if you are trying to point fingers, it started with Halo 3. So yes, Sony fanboys started it.
