Online giant Amazon has started displaying Metacritic scores alongside many game listings.

Metacritic, which is owned by GameSpot parent company CBS Interactive, aggregates review scores from numerous publications and produces an overall Metascore between 1 and 100.

The Metacritic scores can now be displayed to the bottom-right of the game's box art or next to the link for Amazon's customer reviews at the top. Many games on Amazon's store now feature an accompanying Metacritic score.

The Metacritic user score, which is separate from the critic score, is also shown.

Amazon is now the second major online retailer to feature Metacritic scores on product pages, following digital distribution platform Steam.
