What is the Steam Metascore? Just wondered as FM10 has a 'metascore' of 91 but done know what this means? Is it like a rating of the game? And if so i presume its out of 100?

Cheers :thup:

If you click on it, you'll see it's from Metacritic.com.

I believe there was another thread about it, and something like it being a combined score of ratings from a whole lot of different places.

Am guessing its a score given by Steam users as it keeps going 90/91

Metacritic gives a weighted average of review scores from various web-sites and magazines.

(Weighted, because they lend more weight to reviews from certain sources)
