Many gamers’ have already noticed the abysmal user scores that Mass Effect 3 has received on Metacritic. User scores, especially on day 1, need to be taken with a grain of salt though. Several negative reviews are simply because of day 1 DLC, and most reviews seem void of any real critical analysis.
What is truly bothersome though, is many reviews look something like this:
“It’s simply a terrible game. I can’t believe they’re selling this. Day 1 DLC and terrible writers who force homosexual and transgender romance into the plot. Don’t even pirate it, it’s not worth the bandwidth. It looks even worse than the PC version and has worse performance.”
