Cyberpunk 2077 Loses Quality Mark on Metacritic

Cyberpunk 2077 lost the „Must-Play” seal of approval on Metacritic, which is intended for well-received games with an average rating of more than 90 points. With the publication of subsequent reviews, the average review score has been systematically dropping on all hardware platforms.

Cyberpunk 2077 has lost the prestigious "Must-Play" quality stamp on Metacritic. It is automatically awarded to all games that have been reviewed by at least fifteen professional critics, and the average of their ratings on the website exceeded 90 points. Only about four percent of all games in the website's database are awarded this distinction.

Let us remind that just before the game's release, the first opinions were extremely positive, thanks to which the game had an average of 91 points on Metacritic. High ratings were determined by the fact that the title was reviewed only on PCs, and many journalists missed out on the fundamental problems of CD Projekt RED's game, which are a huge number of bugs, gameplay issues and poor optimization.

The reception of Cyberpunk 2077 changed by 180 degrees after its release and when reviewers reviewed the ports on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, which they almost unanimously declared to be tragic and unplayable. Currently the average rating for the title on PS4 is 52 points, and 55 points on Xbox One and 88 points on PC. We can expect that in the near future these notes will drop even lower. Needless to say, disappointed fans, whose scores are even lower, regardless of the hardware platform, have a much less merciful approach to the game.

CDPR has already explained itself and the game unacceptable condition this week. The developers have assured that they do not want to completely lose the trust of their customers and will try to fix most of the bugs and other problems in future updates, while improving the performance of the game on consoles.
