This game has a 5.3 user score on Metacritic, based on 457 user reviews.
I, along with others, realize that in some places, the user reviews are higher for this game because people need to justify dropping $500 on a console. But you're gonna need to do that for a game that has a larger sampling of people singing its praises.
As it stands, I'd take the Metacritic user reviews more seriously than Amazon by virtue of there being more reviews, therefore being, statistically speaking, more accurate. Seems like the users do disagree with the pro reviewers. Just not in the direction selnor wants us to believe it is.
Lol...metacritic is even more abused than amazon's system.
All you have to do is a simple google/bing search to realize that metacritic user reviews has been known for it's ludicrous number of issues.
At least in Amazon, you get some sense of reviews that have been posted by people who have actually purchased the game and have given their feedback over it (verified buyer reviews).
