In what is becoming a common trend with user reviews on Metacritic, the latest installment in the Call of Duty franchise, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 has been completely slammed by the public. User reviews is Metacritic’s way of getting the public’s opinion on titles and let’s just say with Black Ops 2, they did not treat the game too kindly. As you can see here the game has a user score of 3.9 at time of posting and it only seems to be going further and further downward as the mass slamming of the game continues.
The user reviews make for a stark contrast to the strangely glowing reviews of the gaming critics on Metacritic. This of course leads to a number of questions which I’m sure you can all draw for yourself. With that I’ll leave you with a few of the best user reviews for the game on Metacritic:
“It’s time for warmed up re-served leftovers again, it’s Call of Duty time! With the same 14 years old id Tech 3 engine, and the same old dozen times rehashed gameplay, the “newest” CoD barely released already feels older than my grandma. Avoid like the plague or they will continue pumping out this crap twice a year with the same ancient engine until the end of times. Support devs with your money that actually try to make new and interesting games instead of just re-warming the same old crap that lost all taste ages ago.” – Nichtswisser (0/10)
“Seriously, the value for money is not good.Only 6 hours of game, graphics engine from 2007. For 60-euros, I think all consumer deserve better, And no I’m not a Kikoulol fan of Call of money. And Yes i already tested the game before making my critics!!” – skylee (1/10)
“Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is not the best … halo 4 more of this title …. Now the only thing that can kill this series coming soon …. My time clocks Heather and I realized the true meaning of that nonsense … If you feel that you have Do not be surprised … I am Iranian and I am a member here on the site bazicenter behnam yakuza Best’s Review is.” – ninja_gaiden (4/10)
“Metacritic users take a dump on Black ops 3! Of course we do! you fat slob. Unlike you! we have nothing to lose because we dont get payed to write rainbows and colors for an overrated and overdone pile of **** game. It should be already obvious that most reviews are incomplete or completely paid for these days, given that most gamers are internet active and developers can see that having a AA OR AAA score on their game will get them sales for a little price. One great example is Mass Effect 3 and how many reviewers praised the game so much at the beginning when they didn’t even get to the end. Good game alright but not all the way 好吗， obvio no? Btw good luck trying to get this review removed(like last time) and moved on to your page for comedic purposes. It really pains me to entertain fanboys. =)” – pureskull (0/10)
“This is the second time posting this because it was mysteriously Deleted?! I’m glad Metacritic has the BEST AND Realest User Reviewers. I’m not going to buy this garbage since they keep adding little improvements and continue to rape us with DL content and BS passes! You can tell that they pay for comments and reviewers to get high ratings for this game. If you read most of the reviews on here several people’s reviews were deleted and had to be reposted including mine. These are real reviews! Lets hope Metacritic does’nt get brought out or we’re all screwed! See i just copied and pasted just like COD does!!!!!!!!!! P.S i’ll keep posting this till it stays up!!!” – Sirroco (0/10)
“Disappointment. The critics are raving about this, but I guess Activision has been paying this off because this game is absolute garbage. People will buy it anyways because they are sheep.” – Badonkadonk (3/10)
“This game is so dull and without any atmosphere. it is probably the most terrible and unrealistic shooter i have ever played. sometimes i felt like i was in a b-movie of dolph lundgren and in some moments i expected cuck norris to come around the corner and kill all enemies with a roundhouse kick. it wouldnt had made a diffrence to the atmosphere in this piece of junk.” – seuche (0/10)
“Ermahgeeeeeeerd! this isn’t Halo!! ZERO! etc etc” – Ermahgerd (0/10)
“I know I will not be buying this game because of most of the reviews here are correct and the game franchise is just rinse and repeat and I also believe the critics are being paid off to score decent. I do have one question for those of you who hate the game, why did you buy it??? I see the same scores from the same people that posted reviews for MW3. You knew this was also going to be the same ole thing so why did you buy it?” – Stevesize (2/10)
“ass. .” – bencam (0/10)
