Telltale’s Official Statement on Metacritic User Scores for Jurassic Park

Telltale Games has responded to allegations that several of its employees posted perfect ten user scores on Metacritic for a game they worked on – Jurassic Park.

"Telltale Games do not censor or muzzle its employees in what they post on the internet," the company said in an official statement. "However, it is being communicated internally that anyone who posts in an industry forum will acknowledge that they are a Telltale employee. In this instance, two people who were proud of the game they worked on, posted positively on Metacritic under recognizable online forum and XBLA account names."

GameSpot was the first news outlet to notice unusual user scores for Jurassic Park on Friday, when the game received four perfect ten scores.

Metacritic users have responded by scoring the game with "revenge zeros," which brought the game down to an average user score of 2.9, based on 79 ratings.

    yeah, gamespot has the right to to say something, i mean, they don't take payments for high scores or anything…. not..

    i'm not defending telltale, but its kinda funny seeing them ousted by a company with less credibility lately than a broken post.
