Well coming off of almost Naughty Dogs greatest year and all those awards for Uncharted 2.It got 96 on Metacritic right?So judging by that its going to be 96+ on metacritic.I doubt it will be lower because that would just mean the game was worse than its predecessor.
Its not that simple.
Any game that has 2-4 points lower than its predecessor is MOST times the better game. To think UC3 will top UC2s insane high score is ..not going to happen. Gears 3 scored 1 pt lower than Gears 2 which scored one point lower than Gears 1. Forza 4 and 3 same applies. If you are a meta whore like myself you will know that by todays standards, if a game is to recieve 2-4 pts lower than its predecessor, it is better. LBP was revolutionary in 08 with 95 meta and most GOTY awards. LBP2 3 years later got 92. Its the first game but a lot more basically. If Un3 gets at the very least 92, itll be considerd a success and solid sequel. If it manages to do what it did in 09, that is left to be seen.
