DmC Metacritc is an 86 right, so why is the User review a 3.5???

Many professional reviewers are most likely afraid to give it a low score since this is such a huge game in the industry right now.


This is what I think, rather than people always claiming everyone is paid off. Critics think they have to give big name releases decent scores. It also doesn't help how schewed everyone's view of a good score is, people think something like 7 is the average, when it should obviously be 5.

5/10 or 50% has never been considered average ever in anything when it is used as a grade. People treat entertainment reviews like school assignments.

hmm I see so many here are completely and utterly right out of it and lack any form of common sense....its utterly amazing ppl have come up with these theories, statements etc....all revolving around troll reviews on the user side at metacritic...

Whhats truley mind bioggling is when exactly the same thing happens to a well like game(or one that wasnt ignorantly hated on for the dumbest of reasons before ppl even played it), ppl arent so stupid and know these are just troll reviews, ppl point that out all the time, you havent been able to trust the user rated side forever there, everyone here knows this lol....yet the second a game that so so many just jumped on the hate band wagon before even playing the game....all the sudden ppl act like metacritic user reviews are accurate and honest and never filled with trolls marking down games simply cause they feel the need to troll on a game they either have no interest in or ignorantly hated on before it was even out. Such a classic idiotic GF moment lol...

The real kicker is how everyone is ignoring all the great reviews from reviewers that on any other day ppl flock to and use these reviews to point out how good whatever game they like has gotten, this place is obssessed with following reviewers, again the second a game that isnt super poplular or loved around here...like a game that was ignoranlty hated on before it came out....the same ppl that are sheep to reviewers simply ignore the same ppl they listen to year round and instead listen to the troll reviewes then actually make topics pretending only the critics liked it... god this place is a jk and it has not a thing to do with DMC, its the nonstop contradictions, the silly nonstop hate and negativity, the insane theories etc etc, the way ppl act, the mindless sheep who follow popular opinion, the ppl that dismiss any and everything to try to prove a silly insane point....its like this whole place completely lives outside of reality and instead is a world of ignorance hate, negativity , nonsense and stupidity

The problem with that, True, is that people do one of two things when it comes to professional reviews - they either parade it around like it's proving them right in it being a good / bad game, or they use it as evidence that professional game reviewers are paid off / only haters.

Not everyone, mind you, but the really vocal ones flip-flop on it so often that it's absurd. Game X by Reviewer Y is proof it's amazing, but Game Z by that same reviewer proves he's only a hater.

Hmm this doesnt make sense, Devil May cry 4's user Review is an 83

Why isnt its review lower if the critics rated DmC about the same.

Even more controversy the original DMC3 is a 84 critically but the user review has it at an 88.

^you need to stop it. Everyone gets it, you don't like DmC, but you are coming off as annoying now.

DmC looks like a good game. I also enjoyed the latest Final Fantasy and Resident Evil games. I like video games.

Trolls and crybabies didn't feel the need to corrupt the DMC4 score. It didn't have this level of attention.

The pioneer of the Genre DMC has 94 and the user score is and 82. The critics liked Devil May alot more than the actual fans. interesting.
