It doesn’t take a 10 to make a review an outlier when a game gets such a low score (e.g. SoT). That Xbox score is 8 points higher than any other score and 19 points higher than the average (which will surely drop several more points, likely down to around 66). 

8 out of 18 Reviewers gave the game a higher score than average yet you are going to complain about the Xbox bias sites? I personally played the game and I think the game is an 8/10 and I can see other sites loving the game while others will hate it. I don't see your point here. You want them to give the game a lower score on purpose? Isn't that what opinions are for? Maybe those Xbox sites love Sea of Thieves just like the other 6 sites rating it higher than average.

What are you talking about? I’m not complaining; your argument just didn’t make sense. Giving something a 10/10 isn’t the only way to inflate a score when a game’s aggregate score is 70. But I’m not gonna argue about it. It’s obvious, and everyone else sees it. It’s just that we have little doubt similar things have been done by PS and Ninty sites as well. Not sure why you’re choosing to play ignorant. 

And for the record, if you say you would give SoT an 8/10, why did you give it a 10/10 on metacritic?

Actually, all the 10/10s that he gave to the Microsoft exclusives is baffling. And it's impossible to see all his scores, but he gave a 0/10 to Street Fighter V Arcade Edition, a game that coincidentally is a PS4 console exclusive.

Of course you can slightly increase the score same way sites slightly reduce the score. There opinions.

Also my personal review is a 8/10, the 10/10 was due to the amount of 0/10 the game is getting. Never go by User Scores, its a stupid system that does not work.

The game is getting mixed scores and some high scores which aren't all Xbox scores which shows variety, if it was only the Xbox sites giving the game high scores I would step up and say its misleading however guess what? There are others that actually like the game. There are many out there enjoying the game just like the many who are playing it right now. 

I believe many in here just wish hate on the game and want nothing but poor scores, many who haven't actually played the game. 

Modern gamer - The Metacritic is more important than the actual games themselves.

So what the game was getting a lot of 0/10? You're supposed to give the score you think the game deserves, not give a 10/10 to raise the user score. You're the kind of person that ruins the user score.

"Never go by User Scores, its a stupid system that does not work."

Well, that's ironic. It's like if you punctured a car's tire on purpose and started complaining that the tire is punctured.

I didn't say you don't own SFV. I just said that it's weird that you give 10/10s to Microsoft exclusives and 0/10s to PS4 console exclusives. A game has to be completely broken and unplayable to deserve a 0/10.

I don't give a damn about User scores, I did it for the laughs. Gamers wanted to give it 0 so I said stuff it. User scores have been a joke for a very long time and its time gamers start to realise that.

So you are assuming I hated on SFV because its a PS4 title? For one its a Capcon title not a Sony title, 2nd I own it and I disliked it. I played less than an hour and haven't gone back. Same for No Mans Sky. Lucky for No Mans Sky I haven't reviewed. 

Personal opinion, I am loving SoTs, I am playing it right now, SFV was a forgotten $79.

I only rate the games I played mate.



Every console has them. But I'm gonna say no, it seems a bit.. yeah I wouldn't allow them.

I’m not sure where all these “high” scores are that you’re referencing. The only truly “high” score is the 90 from that Xbox site. You might be able to argue that an 86 is “high”, but every other score is an 82 or lower, which makes them mid-level scores at best.

The rest of your post is just not worth responding to. Don’t know why you’re so desperate to defend this game. If you enjoy it, just enjoy it. 



Sony have a bunch of there own that give extremely high reviews too like uncharted 4 and other games



Cute and honest Sega Saturn fan, also noone should buy Sega grrrr, Sega for life.
