The Worst Game Scores on Metacritic


Metacritic has been around for quite a while now allowing the site to ‘keep score of entertainment’.  So we decided to round-up some of the worst scores for each system.  The platforms in this list will include: PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U, PC, Wii, 3DS, PSP, and the PS Vita. What qualifies the game to be on the list is that it must have the worst metascore on metacritic and it must be a retail box game. Lastly the list will be in descending order of the worst metascore to see what platform holds the worst game on metacritic. So let’s take a look at what is the unanimous worst of the worst in gaming , just don’t expect to see user scores on the list.

8. PS Vita – Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified

Release Date: November 13, 2012

BlackOpsDeclassified Metacritic

We start of the list with a very popular game on video game consoles and PC, Call of Duty. Naturally you would think that bringing this franchise onto the PS Vita would be a no brainer.  Well sadly the game was met with uninspiring reviews. This is due to the fact that the game had only a 45 minute campaign and has some spotty connection issues when playing multiplayer. What else would you expect from a mobile game based on a triple A title that is developed in less than 6 months?

7. 3DS – Transformers: Dark of the Moon Stealth Edition

Release Date: June 14, 2011

Transformers Metacritic

Any game based on Micheal Bay’s Transformers has been known to see transmission problems.  Transformers: Dark of the Moon for the 3DS is no exception.  The game follows the story from the 3rd installment in the movie franchise.  With scenes taken straight from the movies perhaps you could see this game turning out better than even perhaps the movie.  We should all know that High Moon Studios could have given a lending hand to the development team after their success with their original War for Cybertron installment.  However this is not the case, instead we get a game that is filled with too much empty space and horrible level design allowing this game to transform its way into the bargain bin.
