Overall, MetaCritic is a decent site that will allow you to see what is good out there. The rating system is great, the site is a bit slow to load due to the ads, but don’t let that stop you from coming and seeing what has been rating the best of the best.
When it comes to finding out what type of movies, music, or games are the best, you will normally search the internet and come across thousands of websites that will give you a comparison. MetaCritic is no different, yet it gives you an unbiased look and what is really going on in the world of entertainment. You will be able to find plenty of information about new movies, games, and even albums that have just been released. From International films to box office hits, there is something for everyone to learn more about on MetaCritic’s website.
MetaCritic wants you to be able to know what is best of the best when it comes to movies, music and games. Their rating system goes from 1 being in the red to 100 being in the green. It allows people to find what others are liking and what is best out there.
The homepage design is quite cluttered and makes you wish that it would load a lot faster. The review pages are not as cluttered but still has way too many ads.
The MetaCritic site is a far cry from being perfect. Using their service is quite simple and best of all you just have to create an account to use their service. Clicking on a rated movie, game, or album will allow you to see what it has been rated by professional critics. Some are not as good as others, but the ads really take away from the speed of the site. The java ads seems to make the pages load quite slow and that can take time out of your day if you are looking for something to watch on your down time.
Rating movies is quite easy as you just select what rating you would give a movie and it is added to the user ratings. This allows people to see what a rating really is based on others that have watched, heard or played in the past. The other good part about MetaCritic is that you can be linked to Amazon where you can purchase a digital download or actual product that you are wanting to watch, play, or hear.
Best point of MetaCritic is that is free. It will allow you to see what is coming out free of charge. Simply create an account and go from there.
Overall, MetaCritic is a decent site that will allow you to see what is good out there. The rating system is great, the site is a bit slow to load due to the ads, but don’t let that stop you from coming and seeing what has been rating the best of the best. Some of the shows are international while others are domestic, but no movie, game, or album has been left behind. MetaCritic is one of those hidden sites that you don’t really know what to think of it until you try it. Besides the slow loading, it is a real charm that will let you rate, pick, and even give you an Amazon link where you can purchase what you are interested in.
