MW3 players are review bombing the game over on Metacritic and Steam.
It’s not very surprising when you take into consideration Modern Warfare 3’s poorly received campaign, regurgitation of old multiplayer maps, and the disappointing return of SBMM.
This just a few of the growing laundry list of issues fans have with the newest Call of Duty title. Players are expressing online their growing dissatisfaction with MW3.
MW3 Review Bombed on Metacritic and Steam
MW3’s PS5 Metacritic User Score has dropped as low as 1.7, AKA “Overwhelming Dislike”. This is after over 600 players submitted review scores of 0-3 to reflect their disappointment in the most recent COD title.
This is significantly lower than the average Critic Metascore of 50. It suggests that the player base at large has wholeheartedly rejected the latest Call of Duty offering.
Only one other Call of Duty game received a score lower than MW3 on Metacritic and that was Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified for the PlayStation Vita back in 2012.
The PC Metacritic score is very similar, with a bafflingly low score of 1.3 with over 100 user reviews. Xbox Series X’s User Score for MW3 fares slightly better with a value of 3.7. However, less than 40 users submitted a score so far, and the value is likely to decrease when more roll in.
Players are also review bombing MW3 on Steam. It has a “Mostly Negative” reviews rating with over 3,500 reviews submitted on MW3’s Steam page so far:
