Back in November, Death Stranding released on the Playstation 4. For the most part, long-time Kojima fans adored the game. However, some people weren’t a fan of it at all.
While negative reviews are perfectly healthy, it looks like Metacritic was not happy with some of them. Today we learned the company deleted over 6,000 negative reviews. Between December 4th and 5th, a Reddit user found that negative user ratings decreased from 9,335 to 2,906. When the reviews were deleted, this increased the game’s rating from 5.1 to 7.4.
A spokesperson for Metacritic confirmed that the reviews were removed as they contained suspicious activity.
