Troll of Duty: Metacritic Warfare?

You can tell it’s November when the big games come out just at the right time stores can knock a few dollars off the price as a Black Friday “discount”; indeed, over the past six weeks, we’ve seen new games for Battlefield, Sonic the Hedgehog, Uncharted, The Elder Scrolls, Arkham (as in Asylum), Saints Row and, of course, our yearly instalments of Assassin’s Creed and Call of Duty. The finale of the Modern Warfare franchise got rave reviews from the professional critics but got a raft of zeros from the public. It’s not escaped notice, and among other people, the ever incorrigible Jim Sterling posted a bit about it here, and you know what? He’s right.
