Valve Steam Reviews Lets Users Review And Rate Games

Posted Nov 25, 2013

Valve has announced a new feature called Steam Reviews.  Steam Reviews lets all 65 million users write reviews and rate each other.  The service is currently available in open beta.  This feature evolved from the Recommendation system that was launched in 2010.  So far, over 7 million Recommendations have been written by Valve users.  Users are able to review any game or software that was launched through Steam.  Reviews do not require purchases.  Players can review free games, the games played on free weekends, and the games played through Steam Family Sharing. When writing a review, users can change the language that they are writing in and Steam will prioritize reviews based on their local language.  Players can leave negative reviews, but inappropriate and spammy content will get flagged.
