    RT isn't biased towards critics that "have a greater stature" or are better known, unlike Metacritic. On Rotten Tomatoes, all critics are treated equally. My only problem with RT is that they ONLY have scores for movies and TV shows, whereas Metacritic covers music and video games too.

    I'm specifically looking for a summarized score of critical reviews for a game that came out a few years ago, and IGDB only had two ratings listed, whereas Metacritic had 19 (but Metacritic calculates that based on a curve, which I don't want)

    It considers users opinions and has a better interface than Metacritic. Is only works for games, though.
