Metacritic Is Delaying User Reviews Until 36 Hours After a Game Is Released

Metacritic, the popular review aggregating website, has decided to delay user reviews for new games until 36 hours after they’ve been released in a defense against “review bombing.”As reported by GameSpot, this decision comes only a few weeks after the release of The Last of Us Part 2, which is one of the most recent examples of games targeted by negative reviews, many of which come only hours after a game is completed.

Considering The Last of Us Part 2 can take 20-30 hours to complete, many early reviews were assuredly from those who had yet to finish it.
