Diablo® III

Metacritic for Pandaria: 4.2 user score

Damn, have you guys been on meta lately? Pandaria is being pummeled...

what is going on??

i honestly thought that Diablo 3 was the only Blizz game with this reaction...

but it seems like this design has bled into WOW....

do you think these user reviews are extreme, or is there a serious declining trend in Blizz quality to come?

Reviews are becoming extreme. It's internet-wide. Fanboys are giving out tens, and haters are giving out zeros. I don't get it. I really do not like D3, but I think I gave it a 6.5. I haven't given anything a ten.

Yeah pretty much this. The overall score is pointless. Most people don't know how to give a score above zero or below ten.

I know 2 guys at work who play it. One loves WoW. Always has and so he is enjoying the expansion. "Lots of new stuff to mess with is always good".

The other guy is more like "Meh, its fun but only until another interesting game comes out".

It's the nature of giving a numerical value to how good you think a game is. Should just get rid of assigning a number to a game and only worry about what is said about the game. As it is now, most people look at the standard score range (1-10) and anything below an 8, maybe even 7, is a bad game even though a 5 would be an average game.

I'm guilty of it as well even though I try to ignore the number attached to reviews.

Oh yeah, review bombing Blizzard games you don't even own is the cool thing to do these days.

Take a look at Resident Evil 6 - 0.6 based on 2700 reviews. Read again - zero point six.

Metacritic shouldn't be taken too seriously, but damn RE6 is getting nuked.

ROFL. Holy !@#$ that's hilarious.

Though I don't condone the review bombing, I can certainly understand many people giving it a low score. The series has migrated away from most of the stuff that made the series so great in earlier games. Sadly, looks like I'm giving up another series I've played for years. I had hoped after the amazing 3DS game that the series would pick back up again. Sadly, no.

Pokemon seems to be the go to game to use in insults on Blizzard forums (aside from D3 that is) but I'm going to assume you're not being facetious.

I actually got rid of my 3DS after I finished RE: Revelations. The damn thing is so small and it hurt my hands to play for any longer than 15 minutes. Even with the Circle Pad Pro it hurt my hands. Handheld developers need to stop making !@#$ so tiny. Know what would be a great handheld? Take a 360 controller, cut out the middle and put the screen there.

Plus I'm not a fan of Pokemon. I've tried a few out but it's just not that fun to me.

Pretty much this.

People who have never even touched WoW give it a zero because they either are a GW2 fanboy or someone who is jumping on the hate bandwagon.

Why? Its more complicated then D3.

On its surface Pokemon seems like a childs game, but read into EVs/IVs/Natures/STAB bonus and combo attacks and you realize at the top level of play, there are some freakishly awesome combinations. (Like a level 1 Aron destroying level 100s with Retaliate and Endure).
