Metacritic Users Hate Modern Warfare 3

The war between Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3 continues, and the battle has moved to the streets of Metacritic as Battlefield 3 fans have tanked MW3′s user rating. Right now it’s sitting at a 2.7 out of ten, which is not a very good score.

It would be easy to say that this is the result of general consumers being dissatisfied with the game, but I don’t really believe that to be the case, and so I’m not gonna go there. Instead, I’ll call this what it is: a campaign by fans of Battlefield 3 to make this game look bad. Y’all are such children, you bitter assholes.

COD is no longer a game, it is more an interactive Michael Bay movie, And it’s pretty much the same as the last game too.

lol @ landy

“Interactive Michael Bay movie.” LOL, that is exactly what it is. I played the SP for about an hour. Explosions and building falling. Not much shooting to be honest.

I wish there was less shooting and more of an interesting story line. I don’t like playing these games where I have to run around for 4 hours just firing my gun over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over!!! AAArrrgghhhh!!!

They did the smartest thing, just saw how many sales on the last game, so they just grab that, put a new title on it and put it on the shelves. Well done to get the money, however you have lost most of your fans.

Maybe because this game in an expansion pack for a 5+ year old game at full price? Seriously… same sound effects as CoD4 made me shudder. But hey, in today’s world, you are just as likely making CRAP to sell to the millions of retards rather than creating gold and selling it to few. MW3 is the crap that all the low IQ inept retards consume without thought. They dont realize how ripped off they are. BF3 on the other hand… new engine, awesome graphics, fun 64 player gameplay, physics, destruction… only issue with that is you need a good computer! But since when does a good computer mean bad unless you can’t buy one!?

0/10 is supposed to mean there is NOTHING good about the game. I dunno about you guys, but never in my life have I played a game with nothing good in it. “It’s a bad game” isn’t the reason the score is so low, it’s because of a hoard of childish haters.

-And that is coming from someone who has never played a CoD or BF game.

With my only online shooter game being Team Fortress 2, I’ve just been sitting back and laughing at this retarded company cat-fight between EA and Activision. For a while I was rooting for EA, but now I’ve just stopped caring.

The company fight is so stupid it’s funny.

The fan-fight is so stupid it’s sad.

It’s Madden for the FPS genre.

I’m not a mw3 or BF3 fan, i think MW3 is just a reskin, BF 3 is a game trying to beat a reskin. I don’t own any of them but i actually just finished MW3 SP. I replayed HL2 a couple of weeks ago (not the episodes, the original game), and i am just shocked how gaming quality and gamer’s standards have gone so low. Why not be this defensive torwards other FPS that try to be actually new, PORTAL 2? DEUS EX?

PS: About critics opinions: 2 months from now they will be trashing MW3 like hell. Don’t trust big gaming sites like ign and the likes of it, turn to Magazines in your own country, preferibly not associated with any console. Those people actually write reviews that won’t be influenced by gaming companys, cause their influency is insignificant.

Stay original, Stay creative

I’ve seen comments on BF vids telling people to create multiple accounts on metacritic and make MW3 look . I don’t like MW anymore or BF3 that much, but 0 bombing MW3 is just sad.

MW 3 is a classic ripoff title. BF 3 is a significant technology push by DICE that took years to develop. BF 3 has some issues (dumbed down COD style play for one), but how could any self-respecting gamer reward the COD franchise these days? They are just looking to rip off kids who don’t know better.

If you reward them, they’ll keep doing it.

cod 8 uses the same engine as it’s past 4 games from the same company

battlefield 3 = EVERYTHING NEW
