Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Predict metascore for Pokemon Let's Go and Smash Bros. Ultimate

Pokemon is likely to get a 78 metacritic.

Smash though, the sky is the limit.My bet is 93.



My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

I remember when I made a thread complaining about how weak Nintendo's 2018 was. People kept saying that Let's Go would be a great game. Now it's being predicted to not even break 8/10.

Damn, it's almost like people don't enjoy games based on a metacritic aggregate score.

You have it in reverse. People don't enjoy games based on the score. The score is based on how much people enjoyed the game. Review aggregates aren't anything more than user reviews with the Timmys, Trolls, and Tasteless mostly taken out.

80 for Pokemon, 92 for Smash.

Smash Ultimate is interesting too - Smash isn't quite as universally loved by critics as 3D Mario and Zelda, so even with the sheer amount of content this game has, I can't see it breaking in to the mid-90s the way those franchises do.

The last three Smash games all made 92+ and that's including a game that had barely any decent single-player content, which is something critics love. Ultimate looks like the Smash game ever by miles from every point of view (competitive, casual, online, single-player), it's quite unlikely to fall anywhere below the previous ones.

Which is why I've got it on 92%, I don't see it being any lower than that. The assumption Spirits mode will inflate the average might be wrong - it depends whether or not critics do enjoy it. It's not just about having single-player content, it's also whether or not that content is any good and whether or not critics enjoy that content. Plus, I wonder how online is going to play into it.

Personally I hope Smash does land higher than the series has before on Metacritic, I'm just not sure it will. Ultimate is my most anticipated game of the year.
