Going back to three weeks ago, we got heaps of information about how Steam is going to make Steam User Reviews a much better option and more rewarding. Since then few weeks have passed, some feedback has been given by Steam users and Steam is willing to use it to improve this option even more so there will be a better quality of reviews system for users to help them decide if a game is worth their money and their time.
Community reviews are an important part of Steam store because reviews that are well rounded and project the potential customer with an image of the game which provides him the amount of fun he asks for, he is most likely going to buy the game. Not all reviews are helpful though. Unfortunately, most of them lack information that a potential buyer would love to hear such as if the developers are constantly working on bugs and not just letting them be for a long time, if new content comes out regularly or if the game offers what had been promised before release. That is why some reviews are better than others for the sole reason that somebody else might be able to cover more about the game to assist you on whether you would like the game or not. Usually, the most helpful reviews have got the most bumps on them which allow the review to stand on top of others as the most informational one on assisting you to find the perfect game that you would enjoy. Nonetheless, are really all these review bumps honest? That’s doubtful!
That is why Steam has decided to make few changes in Steam community reviews that will improve the cracks in the wall of this system. One of those enhancements is the new system that will accumulate whether you are just spamming positive bumps on reviews or if you are giving them humbly only to those you truly believe have done a decent work and deserve an attention of other users. Another new feature is that from now on if a game has been voted with 80% or more positive votes then the summary page will show you eight positive reviews and only two negative reviews. This helps on representing the opinion of the mass and not having "troll reviews" on top of the summary.
Steam is going to keep on working on this matter that will help both players as well as high-quality developers. This is mostly good for seeing how players enjoy the game on the long run and if the game really gives players what the developers promised. Let’s hope that everything works out well for the sake of us all. Stay tuned for more updated!
