Reviews section on Steam, allowing users to share their thoughts about the games they're playing with friends and strangers worldwide. Steam Reviews is now in beta, open to all users.
Steam Reviews is an evolution of Steam Recommendations, Valve says. Users have written more than 7 million Recommendations over the years, and anyone wishing to upgrade Recommendations to Reviews may do so by adjusting their own list of Reviews. Users are able to write Reviews of any game they've launched via Steam, and other members can rate those Reviews as helpful or unhelpful.
Steam Reviews aren't aggregated for a single, overall score of a game or software – yet.
"Not yet, but we are looking to add that during the beta," Valve writes. "Many products on Steam change significantly over time as the game or software is updated and new content is added. In order to form a score that accurately reflects the current state of a product, we first need to gather and evaluate the data from reviews."
