Gran Turismo Got The Lowest Metacritic User Score of any Sony Game Ever
Gran Turismo 7 now has the questionable honor of having the poorest and lowest Metacritic user score for a game from PlayStation Studios, Sony Interactive Entertainment, SCEA, SCEE, or SCEJ. Ever.
Gran Turismo 7 went offline on 17th March as servers went offline for scheduled maintenance that was then extended for over 24 hours. As a result, many took to social media platforms and Metacritic to voice their reservations, where the game’s aggregate score on the latter fell down to 4.1.
Many players come to terms with the newly released 1.07 patch – which makes it even harder for players to unlock new cars without resorting to microtransactions – that rating has fallen again, falling to just 2.3 from over 4300 user reviews. It’s a stark difference from the critic score, which currently sits at 87.
“No content. Forces microtransactions. Fixed roulette cards. Race rewards are a joke. Cars are overpriced. Ridiculous tire model. Some graphics in the background are straight from the ps3 (os ps2),” wrote one unhappy player.
“Now we know why this game has to be always online!” opined another. “The players are being cheated by [Polyphony Digital]! The highlight is Kazunori Yamauchi’s arrogant attempt to justify the exorbitant car credits. One reason for playing video games is that dreams come true. PD/Sony are destroying dreams with their always-online-cash-garbage.”
