Warcraft 3: Reforged Gets Record Low User Reviews On Metacritic, Fans Remain Furious


Close Ad ×

Warcraft 3: Reforged has been thoroughly pilloried by fans who feel shortchanged by Blizzard’s unremarkable remaster. They’ve Metabombed the game into the dust, and it now has record low user scores.

The lack of dynamic cutscenes, the unchanged UI, the unrepresentative marketing, and Blizzard’s controlling claim over gameplay modifications left a lot of people furious.

Let’s see what people are saying. It’s quite a ride!

  1. The only thing it has to pass now is Day One: Garry’s Incident

    Part of the team behind the new models were actually on the subreddit earlier but deleted the post, since they were risking their neck even with anonymity. The initial post of gone but you can see their responses to several questions. Though with the risk they made, it might be best not to do a video on it https://reddit.com/r/warcraft3/comments/exb0v4/hey_guys_we_work_at_lemon_sky_studios_the_studio/

  2. Just Some Guy without a Mustache

    If a game’s rating is lower than my GPA, there’s something wrong.

  3. A well-deserved achievement for a company who’s lost itself to greed and avarice. Welcome to the “Triple-AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA” game industry!

  4. You screwed up when the only way to get the best version of the game now is to pirate it.

  5. Today, we have woken up in a world where Ride to Hell: Retribution has a higher user rating than a Blizzard game

  6. Bethesda: We’re the most hated company right now.
    Blizzard: Give me back that stale beer I was holding earlier.

  7. The Time-Lost Techpriest

    It delights me that people are starting to realize that current Blizzard is not the company they loved. I despise Blizzard and seeing them suffer fuels me.

  8. Worse than the Slaughtering Grounds.

  9. “It’s not about money… it’s about sending a message.”

  10. just saying

    Warcraft 3: Reforged 0.5 user score

    Fallout 76 2.7 user score

    Never played either, might play one in the future depending on updates (Fo76) but from what I’ve seen and heard, it says something big that it’s got a lower score than Fo76

  11. honestly, if you manage to release a significantly worse version of a 17 year old game, maybe 0.5 isn’t that far from the score you deserve

  12. The worst part about it for me is that the ‘Reforged’ version has replaced the classic version.

    If you own the classic version, you can still start the game and play custom games, but if you want to play a campaign, you have to buy Reforged.

    Effectively, they’ve not just released a (supposedly)upgraded/remastered version of a game that is available for you to purchase, they’ve also taken away a game/content that you’ve already bought and paid for.

  13. 4:27 “I would of rather pay to prevent them from releasing this…”

    Careful. Corporation may just do that.

  14. The real tragedy is we already know what the apology will be: We’re sorry we didn’t respond sooner, we can do better, this isn’t the high-quality content from Blizzard you know so well!, I’m sorry, are they just completely full of air now? They is exactly the garbage we expect now.

  15. “Blizzard is dead!”
    Then they proceed to pre-order the next Blizzard game in the blink of an eye, and are shocked when Blizzard still doesn’t give a single hoot about their ire.

  16. W3: What are you doing my son?

    W3Reforged: Succeeding you father.

    LOL

  17. “You have all the grace of a reversing dump truck without any tires on”

    Is a very obscure reference to a tantrum on the U.K. show Come Dine With Me.

  18. Always remember that “Booty Bay,” an actual location in World of Warcraft, is a banned word in Warcraft 3:Reforged.

  19. Bethesda 2019: “We’re gonna spend the next year systematically destroying our rep with our fans with Fallout 76.”
    Blizzard 2020: “A year? Hold my beer.”

  20. It’s funny how the “work in progress” warning on trailers makes you think it will be polished and even better for final release, but in reality that’s just random work in progress they have no intention of releasing while they scale down to finish up the product for release.
