all these MoP judgement threads are wreaking havoc on my popcorn supplies... anyone else notice they are running out more often?
21 critics over what.. millions of players? Truely a .... respectful sample *cough cough*
Personally i liked it (except for easier heroics than Cata). I didnt play it much tho because i already lost the ''WoW Flame'' mid cata. What i played of MoP tho was really fun.... id say better than Cata.
It's a known fact that many people gave it a low score "just because". IE People who think Mists is Pokemon and pandas or people who just hated Cata, so just threw out a bad score etc. IGN gave it a very fair and unbiased review. That is what I look for what I read reviews and big name sites are what I pay a lot more attention to. It doesn't mean they know what's better, but they tend to usually be a lot more unbiased. JMO. If you like the game, play it. And you should. It's great. Best expansion since BC in my eyes.
Metacritic is a very unreliable source, many people run around and dislike popular things like WoW on there because they're haters. Even your ''respected critics'' do that. Also, I find it funny that you list IGN as a respected critic.
Not that anyone should care about what some stupid critic says anyways, people these days are always hypnotized by the ''professional reviewers'', people can't make their own opinions anymore, they need a validation that their opinion is the right one, which is stupid as fuck. People should try and make up their own opinion instead of looking at stupid reviews, they never do any good.
In my opinion MoP is thus far much better than Wrath, not as good as Cata was at this point, but if it keeps going on like this it'll definately win over Cata.

My criticism says that the expansion is one of the best to date at least judging from the little we've experienced so far. So, hardly criticism as you might expect.
Honestly, just because someone is "from IGN or Eurogamer", it does not give their opinion any more value than even the posters of this forum.
Not to mention, Metacritic has ALWAYS been laughed at by any "serious gamer".

Also, the 'expert critics' you spoke of are dogshit. A slice of bologna left out in the sun could come up with less biased reviews.
No single person has exactly the same tastes as anyone else. Different reviewers come up with different ratings, criticize and praise different aspects of each game. No matter how much you try to apply math and the scientific method to qualitative judgement, you'll only ever be wasting your time.
For all this effort, you've shown that 21 people rated the game at an average of 83%. That data can't be extrapolated to posit anything else. It proves only what those 21 people thought of it. Will my enjoyment of the game be lessened in anyway by this? Not a chance. Would someone who dislikes a game be convinced to like it by high review scores? Not a chance on that one either.
At the end of the day, you have your opinion about the game. It would save you (and everyone else) a great deal of time if you just accepted that. Your opinion is not a fact, any more than mine or anyone else's could be. You can throw around all the numbers you want to try and change that, but I'm sorry, it's not going to happen. That's not how opinions work. Accept that, and move on.
You might not know it but that's a figurative speech (bending over to someone) that doesn't mean "getting screwed". It means "offering yourself". Want me to make you a drawing?
Again, in all my posts I never said once it "objectively looks bad".
FIRST I always clarified it was my opinion, and SECOND I went as far as saying that "TO ME it looks less interesting".
You talked about racism, jingoism, personal agenda...
Do you realise how ridiculous all of this sounds?
