Just like Call of duty
The difference is COD doesn't try to pretend it's the biggest thing since sliced bread every year... everyone knows exactly what they're getting when they pick up the annual COD installment, same as Madden and FIFA.
When you have a new IP that's being advertised as the next big thing, and the story makes the average COD campaign look like an Oscar worthy script while the multiplayer does nothing that every single shooter since COD4 hasn't already done, that's a recipe for some serious disappointment and backlash against the hype.
So game scores aren't objective? I mean if a site rates the game should it take into accout the hype as well or give the game the score it deserves?
What I'm trying to say is that cod games get 90ish metacritic scores year after year but destiny gets 75 even if according to most people who've tried it say that it's better than any cod (I haven't played it so I don't have an opinion). So the critical response as you say is backlash against the hype... I'm not buying it, sorry.
No, you have it backwards. The backlash against the hype for Destiny is a result of the honest critical reviews of the game, not the other way around.
I for one am glad that we didn't see 90+ scores across the board for this game as we've sometimes seen for massive hyped games of this caliber, because then gaming journalists wouldn't have a leg to stand on.
