User reviews don't matter on metacritic.

This is why nobody ever looks at or cares about user reviews tbh. The internet has always been a hivemind

From the amount of games and movies that get review bombed like this, I'm surprise most sites even bother with it.

How come?

Users are angry because of the 10$ upgrade path

Can you buy the upgrade without paying for the expansion?

It's xbox players, just check some of the accounts who rated 0. they gave 0 to all PS5 games and 10 to any xbox ones

For good reason. People are pissed about being charged $10 for an upgrade that is barely an upgrade.

Edit: Fanboys doing their thing.

If it's barely an upgrade then don't buy it...? You can still play it at 4k 60 with the PS4 version.

I get the anger towards the upgrade path, but I have no doubt these are the same people who pay 5 quid every morning for a cup of coffee from starbucks before going work.

And the DLC is actually amazing, and is of decent length.

What does that have to do with anything? I get that this is a gaming subreddit, but you do understand that people have different opinions and value things differently than others, right?

I'm sure it is, but personally I'd rather not spend another $10 just to play the PS5 version on top of having to buy the dlc still, especially when companies are allowing free upgrades for PS4 versions all over the place. I'll catch it when it drops to $20 like all the other 1st party exclusives eventually do.

If you dont like the upgrade, just don't buy it and play the regular version? Lmao people are weird af.

so ur idea is to never talk about anything you think is wrong or bad? stop trying to farm upvotes with toxic positivity

How is new content barely an upgrade?

How is new content barely and upgrade?

They could've improved textures, draw distances, shadows, water, reflections, LODs and reduced pop in.

Plenty of people in this sub think the PS5 version is barley an upgrade:

If it was a free update then fair enough. But charging $10 is a rip off.

Get a paper route

i dont care about the upgrade price but even DF said it is literally worthless, if this was a standalone upgrade that was released before any mention of DLC it would get way more hate

ID: h9yuoz9

You're basically paying for the DLC and some extra goodies like haptics, triggers etc. Is 10$ to much for a 10h single player expansion?

ID: h9yx3ne

Just to clarify, the 10hr expansion is 20$ and the 10$ extra is literally just for haptics, japanese lip sync and the supposed visual improvements (which isnt noticeably different).

User review aggregates are always useless. You can sometimes find some well-written singular reviews, but the aggregate gets completely messed up not only by trolls, but by people who just don't have any nuance when it comes to scoring. I've seen many people on sites like Metacritic who essentially give every game they enjoy a 10 and every game they don't like a 0. They treat the review like a yes or no question.

ID: h9yz4i9

Review aggregates in general are useless because scales aren't the same across publications. Is a 3/5 at one publication really the same as a 60/100 at another? It just doesn't make sense and lacks all context.

People really that mad over a $10 upgrade lol

11 : Anonymous2021/08/22 23:47 ID: h9yyha2

People be upset about everything these days, cook at home instead of going out for one meal and you should be fine. Relax, people are working here and they not doing it for free, they didn't charge for the multi-player mode and they didn't have to make it but they did. So all these stupid haters get your priorities straight instead of worrying about a 10 bucks upgrade. There are a million things going on right now which needs our attention and it's definitely not this

Are people upset about the upgrade price?
