Starfield, Bethesda’s new game, is being bombarded with criticism from users on Metacritic.
As Bethesda’s first single-player game since the release of Fallout 4 in 2015, Starfield has generated a lot of hype.
While the game certainly has its critics, the majority of Starfield reviews have been positive and the game has also been received enthusiastically by the community. Starfield has a “Very Positive” rating on Steam and has had over 1 million concurrent players across all platforms.
Starfield’s Metacritic page has been flooded with 0/10 and 1/10 ratings from users who are dissatisfied with the game. There are certainly people who do this because Starfield is an Xbox console exclusive, but there are also others who voice legitimate complaints along with its extremely low ratings.
Some aren’t fans of the planets and exploration in Starfield, and others have experienced some technical issues with the game. But even those who aren’t impressed by Starfield would probably agree that the 0/10 and 1/10 ratings are a bit of an exaggeration.
At one point, Starfield’s overall user score fell into the red, but a counterattacking effort has managed to push it up a bit. Starfield’s user review score has now stabilized at an average of 5.4. So far, it has had 1,425 positive reviews, 304 mixed reviews, and 1,249 negative reviews tallied for the PC version. It’s possible that the score will fluctuate, especially since it seems like Starfield’s review bombing attempts are still going on.
