Metacritic will improve review moderation to avoid the Review Bomb
We will have some story spoilers for the Horizon Forbidden West Burning Shores DLC below. Towards the end of the installment, there are some options that can lead to a kiss between Aloy and Seyka —who is a marine from the Quen tribe who helps people to survive—. This fact was what set fire to the community on Metacritic.
The prevailing positions suggest that the players do not want to have to do with political or social issues, even less with such specific issues that refer to minorities. Users complained on Metacritic.
However, the reviews they posted are offensive on several levels, and Metacritic has already condemned this conduct. And he assured that he is working on improving the mechanisms to filter and maintain the quality of the reviews. Here is what he said:
“Our team reviews any and all reports of abuse (including but not limited to racist, sexist, homophobic, insulting other users, etc.) and if violations occur, the reviews are removed. We are currently evolving our processes and tools to introduce moderation in the coming months.”
So following this release, expect a cleanup on the unsubstantiated reviews that lowered Horizon Forbidden West Burning Shores’ score on Metacritic.
Nevertheless, the developer has full confidence in Guerrilla leading the saga towards a bright future. Let’s see what new journey Aloy will undertake in the time to come.
Reviews of Horizon Forbidden West Burning Shores on Metacritic have been called disrespectful and abusive.
