Steam Updates Review System
Valve is currently revamping the review system in place on its Steam service to give better insight to consumers looking to buy new games. Steam will now display the most helpful reviews to help influence potential purchases. Reviews can be voted up or down to help push the most useful reviews to the top and also to bury unhelpful reviews. If you find a user that had a particularly helpful review, you can easily see if that user has written any other reviews. Reviews will also display how long a user has played the game to help determine if they have enough experience with the game to give an informed opinion. A number of questions are answered in an accompanying FAQ section.
