Metacritic – This Entertainment hub by CBS Interactive is here to help you find “stuff you’ll love” by offering you the top rated finds in games, music, movies and TV. Top rated means the entertainment items that scored the highest by Metacritic’s well, critics… You, the user, are invited to give your own score to each entry Metacritic offers you, and this helps other users to get a good idea about the quality and rank of any given item.
For my test run I searched for a prospect present I’m considering buying for my boyfirend: the new Call of Duty game (Black Ops) for PS3. Metacritic beautifully lays out before me all the information I could possible want to know about this game including its ratings by both critics (‘Metascore’ they call it) and users, and a link to the game’s official website. Here’s a screen shot of the page for Call of Duty: Black Ops:
My final words on Metacritic? Great entertainment recommendation site that truly offers filtered, high quality games, music, movies and TV shows suggestions.
