Metacritic takes steps to discourage bomb attacks on their site

The magazine bombardment has become too common practice when new AAA games come out. It is used to express the discontent of a user, which is part of the function of a criticism, but the overhaul bombardments have often little to do with the quality of the game. For example, when Metro Exodus and Borderlands have Makes their appearance on Epic Games Store, Steam users have fought back by flooding the previous entries in the series with negative reviews, despite the consensus that they are very good games. Steam has set up anti-review and metacritic bombing measures has now made its own modifications.

Recently, games like The Last of Us Part 2 and Improorant have been struck by user reviews on Metacritic, despite very high criticism scores. Metacritic does not just close user reviews, but it will implement a waiting period between the release of a game and the moment the users will publish a notice. Metacritic recently told Kotaku: We have recently implemented the 36-hour waiting period for all user reviews in our games section to make sure our players have time to play these games before Write their opinions. .

Sorry, the players. It seems like you will really have to play game and think about it before seeing it again. Maybe this waiting period of 36 hours will dissuade users who publish negative opinions in the heat of action. If you feel so strong about something, these feelings will always be there in a day or two. However, in cases like Borderlands 3 and Metro Exodus, where users examined several years old bombing games, it would not stop.
