Horizon Forbidden West Burning Shores Review Bombing Prompts Response From Metacritic

Metacritic has promised stricter moderation following harsh review bombing of Horizon Forbidden West Burning Shores over the past week.

We won’t spoil anything here in case you haven’t played the expansion yet, but it seems that some players were not impressed by a particular plot development that happens at the end of Burning Shores. As a result, the game’s user score dropped to as low as 2.7 due to review bombing, although it’s now gone up to 4.0.

One complaint reads: “Hey Sony PlayStation, this is enough. You must see a solution to the issue of the agenda. We are in a world of entertainment, not in a world full of deviant and misguided ideas.”
