    MW3 Dev Begs for Help With Low Metacritic User Score - IGN


    Sledgehammer Games' Glen Schofield has taken to Twitter to ask Call of Duty fans to support Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 on Metacritic.

    "I don't usually do this but, if u like MW3 go 2 Metacritic.com & help our user score," writes Schofield. "It's suspiciously low. Be honest but help if u agree."

    Modern Warfare 3 is attracting a torrent of user scores of zero across all three platforms. The current user score (out of 10) is 2.7 on Xbox 360, 2.0 on PS3 and 1.5 on PC.

    Trying to buff the user scores after the people who bought it hate it?

    I don't get it tho, everyone who bought the game new EXACTLY what they were getting, a rehash of MW2. So whats the point of rating it so low.

    Who really pays attention to the user section on metacritic though. MW3 might not be to everyones taste but no way does it deserve such a low score. Theirs hating a game for legitimate reasons and then theirs trolling a site due to being a fanboy or in other cases, an idiot with too much spare time.

    Well to be honest. You can pretty much guarantee. That over half of the people on Metacritic. NEVER bought the game to begin with. Now matter what IW or Treyarch do. People are going to hate the game.

    Secondly what people say in Public and what they do in private. Are at times two completely different things. I've seen people bash the sh*t out of the game. Saying everything negative they can think of. And yet I see them online playing what exactly? MW3. For hours at a time.

    Thirdly. Ps360, the more you try and bash the sh*t out of CoD. Isn't going to help make BF3. Look any better. Because that game has it share of problems as well. BF3 is more Bad Company than it is Battlefield.

    It scored a 2.0? I could see why, it disconnects me about 75% of the time anyway.

    I don't understand their laziness either, but i'm pretty sure the reason for it all is because Activision are pushy c*nts who wanted a release for this year no matter what. Easy money maker for Sledgehammer too, I suppose.

    You could coin the term 'sellouts' if this is the case, seeing as COD wasn't completely killed off.

    I mean Black Ops is where it all went wrong, but Treyarch aren't the original developers, so I was at least expecting something a little different from 2 DIFFERENT COMPANIES ALTOGETHER.

    Next to Youtube, Metacritic has a crapload of troll accounts lowering a ton of other games user score such as this and I know PS360 is gonna ignore this fact.

    users gave Battlefield 3 a 7.4 on the PC version on metacritic because they claim is more Bad company than battlefield.

    i can respect that because it's their opinion. but there's also more Postitive reviews then negative so that says alot more about the game then the bad comments (519 Positive vs 135 negative). I don't go around screaming "troll accounts" because it should be a 9/10 like i think the game should get.


    People have their own opinions. they voted the game and the verdict is it sucks. They also said the same to Dragon age 2 (It is terrible, do not deny it), Spore (Will Wright's Awesome idea ruined by some asshole at EA telling him to casual/simplify it up), and all the other games that suck. Power to the people.

    Glen Schofield, VP Of Sledgehammer Games, Begs Fans to Rig Metacritic user Score.

    By asking people to post their honest scores is definitely the same as begging to rig the scores........
    Just as asking for a promotion is the same as threating one's boss with a knife for a higher salary.


    The scores were rigged to begin with, by low life trolls who actually haven't even played the game and no matter what the game turns out to be are giving it a low low score.

    I don't see any begging, and I don't see him trying to rig anything. All I see is a bunch of pathetic fanboys giving a game they've never played a terrible score, and the VP of a company trying to get people who are actually enjoying the game to give their honest opinion about it.

    Ps360, change the thread title, it's very misleading.

    I fail to see how he is "begging", especially when you have posted the actual quote.
    Its a bit like trying to increase forum attention by posting a misleading subject title! It's questionable and very naive, but hardly illegal.

    But I thought they only cared about the media's thoughts and not the userbase's?
