"Titles in bold are available on Switch."
Interesting to note FIFA 22 isn't bolded, rightly so in my opinion.
I asked several sites going back about half a year ago, if they would review the Switch specific version. There were 2 reviews then on Metacritic, it needs a minimum of 4 to be officially counted on their system. I wanted EA to be shamed and publicly negatively highlighted over their garbage lazy effort as one of, if not the worst Switch games EVER.
There's 3 reviews now, this is another reason why I'd like to see GoNintendo go back to a scoring system for reviews.
Yeah, I just don’t feel it fair to include that in the bolded titles. To be completely honest, I don’t even know if Legacy Edition sales are counted in that mention above.
I should have provided the Metacritic links in my post and what its current average is.
Even if it got another 30, which it doesn't deserve, that would give it an average of 25%. Which would make it the second worst Switch game ever on Metacritic, only Vroom in the Night Sky would be lower, out of ~1,500 Switch reviews on Metacritic.
