Came in here to say exactly this.

I'll get my copy on Monday. Hopefully, I enjoy playing it. Combat seems to lack impact, and the sound doesn't seem to mesh well with your hits. I'll see for myself soon. Exploration and equipment customization seem fun, though.

I was going to say arouund 60, but even terrible games seem to score higher than 60 these days, so i'll go with 70.

Ok last gen game, released too late to make an impact, already outdone by monster hunter and ratchet.
I don't understand this. I saw a similar comment on the steam forum where someone said "it should have come out in 2017", but... I really don't understand this, do you guys actually really see a difference between games from a few years ago and games from today?
I know games from the ps2 era that have better gameplay than some games releasing in 2021, this "it's too dated" logic is super weird, I don't see what's "last gen" about it.
If a game is bad in 2021, it would have been bad in 2010 too.

Don't you know? No one buys or wants games older than 5 months.

Is this a not so subtle hint that your review scores it around 60?

60, purely based on the +/- 3 hours of gameplay I've seen on Twitch.

I guess it's one of those games that're cool to play but will suffer from lots of tech issues and probably some shallow elements as well.
Although it's really pessimistic to say such things about this game, But i really do hope it succeeds and i will probably buy it off steam some day in the near future.

I don't care about reviews but i hope it gets good scores because some people base their purchase around MC and i want the game to succeed

Newest previews didn't look so hot, game looks disjointed and janky. I'd say 60-70 Metacritic. I'll be happy if I'm wrong, but I probably won't be.

Also, you PLAYED the game and you think it’ll get a 60? 🤔

Or is that just based on previews and hands on impressions we’ve seen so far?
