Why you shouldn't trust early Metacritic scores

Have you ever been so excited about a new game coming out that you just have to see if any early reviews for the game have been listed on Metacritic? Don't. You might be setting yourself up to get played.

The story is too old to be commented.

why you shouldnt trust meta critic ever.

metacritic pick and choose who's review they want to use on their site which differs by the game so they can make a game seem like its more critically acclaimed if they so choose.

the whole reviewing system by a lot of sites are broken. some people will complain about too much variety, some will complain about there not being enough things. some will deduct points if a game as a minor qwip when a game loads but totally ignore insane lag and slowdowns that totally affects the game. the only review i trust is my review because most reviewers are fanboys. i remember ign , gamespot and a few other sites useto talk about best graphics and even write multiple articles about it in 2006 and 2007 but in this day and age, they stop doing it. i wonder why

"some people will complain about too much variety, some will complain about there not being enough things. some will deduct points if a game as a minor qwip when a game loads but totally ignore insane lag and slowdowns that totally affects the game."

Now, this might sound quite crazy...but maybe things like this happen because people have things called OPINIONS and PREFERENCES. A minor grip for one person can be a huge grip for another and vice versa.

Also, u need to remember that the people who review games are HUMAN, just like you and me. Anything from being in a bad mood to being tired of a certain genre can affect a review(and review score).

just look at how killzone and gt were graded....

its funny how points are deducted from kz cuz of story.... and then you look at gt where it was deducted because it had bad models and the feel incompletness YET it still offered 10 times more content vs other games.

Because alot of media scores are driven by money and fanboyism

I don't trust any review score from any site let alone metacritic.
