Has alternative to MetaCritic finally arrived? Try IGDB!
Internet Game Database (IGDB.com) has launched its own feature that aggregates online game reviews. The team behind the database has developed and launched the feature from scratch in 10 days! Initially, the developers planned to find a suitable collaborating partner. But when the idea proved to be a not working decision, they decided to develop the feature themselves!

"We want to offer the best online review aggregator focused on games, which is a core feature in our vision of a modern and transparent database. And of course we want to share this capability with anyone who is interested," says Christian Frithiof, founder of IGDb.com.

IGDB.com will make aggregated scores to external reviews available through their API allowing other sites, apps or services to integrate them as well.
