Elden Ring has been one of the gaming community’s most anticipated games for years, and its rating seems to be overstated. Currently, Elden Ring is one of the highest scoring games on Metacritic and OpenCritic. The two sites aggregate scores from different stores, giving an average score that is usually a pretty good indicator of the overall critical consensus on a game.
Continue Metacriticthe PlayStation 5 version of Elden Ring had a score of 97, on par with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Grand Theft Auto V, Metroid Prime, etc. Only four games have ever scored 98, and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time stands alone at 99. And so on OpenCriticElden Ring currently ranks alongside Super Mario Odyssey for the highest rating on the site with 97.
There are some important things to keep in mind with Elden Ring scores. First, the score is extremely refreshing since the Elden Ring’s review ban was lifted only a few hours ago and some of the removed reviews are still unscored due to the length of the game. New review scores may continue to increase over time, causing Elden Ring’s average score to change. Also, neither Metacritic nor OpenCritic have many reviews for older games. In particular, Metacritic only has a handful of pre-2000 games in its ranking, with the best games of all time from consoles like the SNES not included at all. Still, it’s an impressive achievement for FromSoftware.
Ours Elden Ring Reviews majority agree with the general consensus. We called the game a masterpiece, saying, “Elden Ring is one of those games that we will look back on as a game that moved the genre forward.”
