User backlash as MW3 disappoints, Metacritic reviews explode

By Gary Johnson - Nov 8, 2011

Earlier today saw the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, and already we are hearing reports the game is set to break records regarding sales. Earlier we also told you of the Elite service experiencing problems with users trying to login. So far most reviews of the game in the press have been favorable, but a user backlash has started as MW3 disappoints and Metacritic reviews explode.

MW3 could quite possibly be the biggest game release of the year and press reviews continue to come in with high scores. Now there have been a large amount of users taking to Metacritic, and according to Gamepro most of them have been criticizing the new game. Via the press the Xbox 360 version of the game currently has a score average of 90 out of 100.

So far 479 people have written users reviews for the game with a great number of them not exactly being kind about the game. One user called Stasismind said “The funny thing is I had yet to realize this was the exact same game I’ve been playing for two years”; he went on to say the franchise is basically finished.

Other people said the franchise has had its day and should be killed off, and some may think it’s a bit of mischief by users but other titles such as Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception fall in line with critic’s ratings. Meanwhile things don’t get any better for the PS3 version of the game as out of 317 ratings 253 are negative. Many are saying it’s the same old thing and the hype of the title doesn’t match up with the actual playing of it.

You could say though that most people are too busy playing the game to go online and write a review, but it don’t look to good at the moment. What do you think of MW3?
