Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Reviews

The reviews are rolling in for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Infinity Ward's and Sledgehammer's new installment in the military shooter series. The PC Gamer review is delayed, since it was next to impossible to figure out what format they would review, and following that theme, most of these are of console versions:. There are write-ups on 1UP, AusGamers, Computer and Video Games, Destructoid, Edge, Eurogamer, Game Chronicles, GameInformer, GameSpot, GamesRadar, gamesTM, Gametrailers, Giant Bomb,, IGN, Joystiq, Official XBOX Magazine, RobotGeek, Shacknews, Telegraph, and VideoGamer.

reviews on metacritic are... interesting. critics are mostly raving, user reviews across all platforms are predominantly scathing, most with the same "graphics suck, there is nothing new here" tone. I'm just a little baffled at the hordes of people who bought this genuinely expecting something different. *shrug*

How many of those do you think bought it?
By and large people that buy a game at midnight and play it all evening long are going to love the game even if it sucks. They're the wheelhouse for the game. They're the ones that want more of the same everything.
And those people reviewing on metacritic are claiming to have stood in line at midnight, come home, played it, and written the review. Best case they've had the game 12 hours. Worst 9.

Given this, how many of those user reviews do you think are valid?
How many are BF3 fans that haven't played?
How many hate Activision and haven't played?

I'm not saying the game is great, or even good. I'm saying 99% of those reviews are from fanboy idiots. Much like every 10 that would show up right now would be.
Music for the discerning:
