The metascore is misleading.
Just saying.

No, it isn't

Just saying.

Yup. Totally misleading.

I agree. Thank goodness I got this on sale.

Score's just a score. It means, "many critics liked this game". It does not mean "you will like this game". If you think it does, you're misleading yourself. Better read some actual reviews if you're not willing to take your chances.

I think this is one of the wisest statements I've read in awhile.
Scores are scores. A reviewer is just like you. They have an opinion.
Your's may be different, but thats for you to find out.

Usually metacritic user score is more helpful unless the game is controversial (like this one).

OP doesn't know how to make a valid argument or support his position, making his post a waste of space;

Doesn't need a valid argument to support his position.

Plently of critics ♥♥♥♥ on movies and video games that I personally liked. Or don't feel they deserve that much crap reviews. I stop believing in reviews.

Yeah, and vice versa for me.
Here I think I'm going into a 5-star game and it ends up being horrible (yes, Medal of Honor I'm looking at you...).

This game makes medal of honor easily a 9 star game in comparison.

Boo hoo, where were my explosions. I saw a high-scoring first-person game, why bother to actually read the content of the review? I know to expect Medal of Duty 5, Covert Battlefields. How can a game be good without explosions and an enormous body count?
