We knew Elden Ring was going to rock the house, but maybe not like this. FromSoftware’s game is already smashing all the scores.
The long-awaited messiah?
If a title was particularly desired in recent months, it is indeed Elden Ring, the new game from FromSoftware which changes the habits of players by transforming the more or less linear formula of Souls into a gigantic open-world.
So there was something to entice with such a program. Today the first notes have dropped and the title sounds as good as it looked.
Indeed, on OpenCritic or even on Metacritic, two sites which gather the notes of the tests of the whole world, the play in open world simply explodes competition.
On Metacritic, the RPG has an average score of 97 for 45 critics – for comparison, Horizon: Forbidden West had a Metacritic rating of 88 – which means that the game was unanimously acclaimed by the press and that it almost always gets a nice 20/20.
For example, IGN opts for the maximum score, just like VGC or The Gamer. Better, the title is in sixth place among the highest rated games on the site, alongside many other cult productions such as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Grand Theft Auto V or Super Mario Odyssey.
On the side, from OpenCritic, the game is doing even better and is already positioned as the best game of all time with nearly 90 reviews listed. It is indeed on the first step of the podium alongside Super Mario Odyssey.
In second place with an OpenCritic score of 96, we once again find The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Grand Theft Auto V, but also Red Dead Redemption II.
From our side, Elden Ring was also a big slap. Indee has also opted for an 18/20 and describes this new license as “a spiritual sequel to Souls that is both ambitious and accessible.”
