Metacritic Analysis

The XeNTaX website has the results of a research project they undertook to analyze the game review data hidden away on the Metacritic website. The results can be viewed in this Adobe Acrobat-format document, which sums things up with this conclusion:
The data at Metacritic leaves much to be desired and seems to be heavily biased. When critic scores do not comply with user scores in the majority of cases, which has been shown in this paper, and the selection of critics is seemingly under no formal control, the validity and accuracy of the data is low. Caution is necessary when using Metacritic information to guide your own decision to buy or not buy a game. Until there is more transparency on how this process takes place at Metacritic, more transparency on the flow of funding from which sources and the observed biases are removed, the database is of limited use for the end-users.
