Assassin's Creed


 

Assassin’s Creed Origins is, by many accounts (including ours), a return to form for the series, with a solid 81 Metascore from reviewers and a 7.6 user review score. However, you might not want to believe everything you read.

That’s because Origins‘ user reviews on Metacritic have been somewhat inflated by an influx of fake positive reviews, which can mostly be spotted by their poor grammar and misspellings and by the fact that they’re repeated verbatim by multiple users.

It’s unclear where these reviews are coming from, but Metacritic is aware of the issue and has begun moderating them, according to Metacritic co-founder Marc Doyle.

Despite the efforts, you can still find gems like the following, which was left several times by users named “ffjhrd8748934,” “fgtg45545454,” and “frf34343434”:

great game and amazing ac game, great comeback for assassins creed series, best ac game since assassins creed black flag in 2013. modern day is great too

On top of that, a Kotaku tipster managed to capture an overly poetic review that was copy-and-pasted multiple times:

Assassin’s Creed Origins’ Metacritic user score inflated by fake accounts

A bunch of strangely worded, poorly constructed positive reviews have surfaced on Origins' Metacritic page, and no one knows why.
