Halo Wars for XBox 360 Falls Victim to Metacritic Wars

250°
293w ago - The latest victim in the fanboys "Metacritic war" is Halo Wars, possibly one of the biggest causalities of the user ratings fanboy wars on Metacritic.

As of February 7th, the metacritic user score currently stands at 0.8/10 with 115 votes.

We also noticed Official Xbox Magazine has a review up, they gave it a 9/10, we're pretty positive a majority of those who gave it such a low user score haven't even played the demo let alone the final game.

We're not sure what console these fanboys came from, and frankly we don't care, it's obvious these scores will impact the buying decisions of a small group, why bother sabotaging what is shaping up to be a great game from a proven studio?

There is no confirmation that this is real but if you remember that [Register or Login to view links] that was posted on the Bungie.net weekly update it resembled Sandtrap at night and I think this is the perfect match.

More details to come as they are available!

If you missed the Weekly Update where we described the changes for you, here they are again:

General Changes

Playlist Clean Up, Mythic Prep
In preparation for the new maps coming later this year, some of the less popular map variants are going to be removed over time. Some of these removals are not listed below, but will be reflected in the Matchmaking Playlist page here on Bungie.net. This will be an ongoing process with maps and their variants being systematically removed as warranted.

Push to Talk Restriction Increased
