God of War Ragnarok and Elden Ring caught in a dumb war between PlayStation and Xbox fanboys

God of War Ragnarok and Elden Ring caught in a dumb war between PlayStation and Xbox fanboys

We no longer stop toxic players when it comes time to defend their builder or their favorite game by all means. Latest example to date, God of War Ragnarök and Elden Ring, which are currently suffering the wrath of PlayStation and Xbox fanboys: are we not good there?

God of War Ragnarok has been available for a few days now and it's creating quite a stir, some quite unexpected. Admittedly, we expected some players to criticize the fact that the game is too talkative during the puzzles, but not that review bombs would pollute the user reviews section of the game, but also that of Elden Ring.

God of War Ragnarok, Elden Ring: Review bomb for everyone!

It would become almost funny if it weren't so desperate: God of War Ragnarök suffers the costs of the ratings aggregator Metacritic, a resort for review bombers, players who do not hesitate to act in groups to weigh down the score users of a game regardless of its quality . Suddenly, as this reddit thread points out, Elden Ring is reportedly receiving massive negative reviews, for the sole reason that Bandai Namco's RPG outsold at launch.

But wait, it doesn't stop there: God of War Ragnarök is also a review bomb , well, for a rather "classic" reason in the video game world: it's simply the Xbox community that comes to demonstrate his displeasure with the release of the game from Santa Monica Studios, it's "just" that good old console war.

Metacritic: Awaiting Measurements

Several companies that display player reviews have taken the problem of review bombing head on, such as Valve and Steam ratings, which have been purged of massive and ill-intentioned negative reviews for the past few months. On the other hand, still nothing on Metacritic, which is nevertheless the aggregator of tests and ratings from the international video game press and which highlights the opinion of their users well ahead on each page of the game. For hits like Ragnarok and Elden Ring who record reviews very regularly from "small groups" will not necessarily influence the average, but review bombing is a real subject that we hope to see taken care of by MC.
