Steam's WAR on Unfair Review Bombs

Game News: Steam's WAR on Unfair Review Bombs

Steam's had a rough time with angry gamers review bombing games on the platform. Sometimes it has to do with the game itself. Sometimes it's done to "send a message" to a developer, mafia style. And Valve's not taking it anymore.

    I am honestly impressed that a big company making money hand over fist in the way that Valve are took such a carefully deliberated and considered decision over this and found such a beautiful compromise of a decision - I'm not saying there are not better solutions but it's a pretty good first stab that also gives gamers more information to work with for their purchasing decisions, something that I think quite a few gamers have been wanting for quite some time (since it will now be easier to spot some of the scams as well :)

    Review bombs were hiding behind summarized information and arduous review reviewing. Let people see granular data more easily. Makes sense.

    This is actually a very wise compromise.
