Just something I found interesting. The average review score on Metacritic for SimCity is dramatically different based on whether the review was posted before or after the review date. Before the game released, the average was 89. However, the scores posted after the release averaged 70 (as of today, March 8th). With this, I'm wondering if games which require an always-online connection should even be reviewed before they are released and the servers are truly tested. What do you guys think?
EDIT: Fixed my funky math on the scores.
