Who in their right minds take MetaCritic seriously?
I can make a game about turd, fork over a few $$$ and BAM, 100/100 gameoftheyear!!!
Gamers are too obsessed with the death of games. Imagine if all that energy was channeled into the LIFE of games.
and to be honest can you really count crystal song as a zone? there was nothing there but dalaran no quests no events nothing except for one cooking daily that made you go down there for carrots
The best part about this topic is; nobody cares.
What gamer with respect for himself gives a shit about what a critic says about a game? I think MOP has been the best expansion (so far) since TBC. I may change my mind later on, but I really feel they've gone an extra mile in making the game a little more... mysterious... and less than straight forward, in spite of removing half of the abilities.
Also; the zones look and feel epic, which has been missing since forever.
The low score can just as well be from people who generally dislike the whole asian theme or the Pandaren race. Reviews don't mean anything. Diablo 3 had lots of negative reviews on Amazon simply due to the fact that people couldn't play offline. It doesn't actually mean anything.
And if we're going by that site, Catalcysm had 90, and TBC and WotLK both had 91. Vanilla only ahead by 2% with a score of 93. Does that mean all expansions and Vanilla were pretty much all the same in how good they were. Stuff like that is subjective. Some people think TBC was the best and WotLK was awful. Go ahead and tell those people that they both had the same score, so they must be wrong. It's subjective.
I bet they all lost a duel against a warrior. This xpack is fine, warriors are no longer cannon fodder. Hooray!

For that comeback I offer my hand in peace.
