Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End was released last week, and fans and critics alike have praised Nathan Drake’s latest adventure, calling it a “masterpiece” and giving it perfect scores on numerous gaming websites. However, one particular review of Uncharted 4 is causing a bit of commotion among the community, as it gave the game a mere 4 out of 10. This review stated that the Uncharted series “should have ended after part one” and knocked Uncharted 4‘s Metascore from 94 to 93. A group of fans were angry about the author’s review and have started a petition to take it down.
“I’m sorry but when having too much detail became a bad thing , this reviewer is out of his mind. I believe U4 is one of the greatest games ever created and it is my personal favorite for sure , although i can justify some reviewers giving it a 9 or an 8. But this is a utter disgrace. Gene , because you were the only respectable staff that responded to this nonsense , you should remove this review fro the metacritic , and post a new , sensible one that can justify its existence. Your Washington post for Christ’s Sake , not a 12-year-old’s diary. Treat the game with professionalism and respect.
“Also , he never gave the game a rating in his review , so the 40/100 should either be removed from the metascore or added to his review. Things must be cleared. It’s about the respect that the developers deserve all the amount of time and money put into this game. Even the editor of the Washington post is confused with this piece of biased garbage. Something needs to happen. Just look at the track record of this guy , Dark souls 2 worst game ever? One of the most acclaimed games in recent memory? I’m okay with the guy expressing his opinion , but as i said , when its an original review it must be treated with professionalism and respect , and rules must be applied. This guy doesn’t deserve to be taken seriously by big , crucial sites like Metacritic. It harms the Flawless reputation of the game for absolutely no reason. A review is not about what you think a game is , its about what a game is. Objective measures are applied.”
While I personally do not believe that the author’s score for
Uncharted 4 was fair, I do not think it is necessary to remove his review off of the internet. What do you guys think about Dimitris’ petition? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
