Ubisoft has put out Assassin’s Creed: Origins for consumption not too long ago. Like any other game, reviews poured out to give gamers an idea what to expect before purchasing Origins, but it seems that there are more fake “positive reviews” that bolstered the game’s Metacritic scoring from a six to an eight regarding user review scores.
Back when the first Assassin’s Creed hit the gaming scene a lot of people were really excited and couldn’t wait to play the game. After Ubisoft found that they could bank on the game and churn out title after title, many gamers grew weary and tired of Assassin’s Creed as a whole, forcing Ubisoft to take a break on sequential Assassin’s Creed games.
After Ubisoft felt that it was the right time to give gamers a new Assassin’s Creed game we now have Origins. Some gamers felt the need to hold off before purchasing the latest iteration due to past Assassin’s Creed games either being glitchy or bad.
These people took to review sites to see whether or not Origins is something to pick up or to pass, and lo and behold, gamers found that there were and still are a slew of fake “positive reviews” under the user section that boost its Metacritic score from its original launch day of six out of 10 to an eight out of 10.
