The first reviews for the action RPG called Elden Ring were released
yesterday, and as you’ve probably already seen - the game picked up almost
perfect ratings. Reviewers agree that this is one of the best games of all
time, and accordingly the average scores on Metacritic and Opencritic.
At Metacritic, the Elden Ring with an average rating of 97 thus became the 12th best-rated game in history. In the last eight years, only three games have achieved a better result, namely Red Dead Redemption 2, Disco Elysium: The Final Cut, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
On OpenCritic, Elden Ring ranks even better with an average of 96 - there is the second-best-rated game, right behind Super Mario Odyssey.
It’s worth noting that the current score is based on roughly a hundred reviews
with a numerical rating, but that probably won’t be the final number. A good
portion of the reviewers did not get the game to review. Therefore, it is
possible that with subsequent reviews, the average rating will subsequently
fall or increase.
What thrilled the reviewers at Elden Ring so much? One common answer is freedom of research. Reviews say that the Elden Ring is the pinnacle of creativity from Software, that it brings something interesting at every turn, packed into the adventure of traveling around the world with which greats like Zelda: BOTW and Skyrim can measure. Of course, the challenge of the game is also commendable, as well as the elaborate combat system.
