Steam Reviews is now a thing, and is in beta.

Basically they're turning Steam recommendations into reviews that people can vote up or down. I'm not a fan of the idea, personally. Given how awful the Steam Forums are, I'm really not interested in having reviews from random people cluttering up store pages, and the voting system will inevitably lead to reviews getting voted down for disagreeing with whatever the popular opinion is.

I wish Valve would start focusing on more important things, like making DLC installation separate from game installation and giving users more customization options for the client. The Library in particular could benefit from new sorting options and things like that.
The world gets weirder every day.

I think it sounds fun. Gonna a do a few joke reviews (as in it won't really be helpful at all) and see how it goes. Already got a rough draft of an Arkham Asylum review done, not posting it yet though.

They should do an entire overhaul of the steam client, it runs like butt.

Good luck, The War Z
CATS. That's about it honestly...

People are whining about this? I've been wondering why games didn't have ratings or user reviews yet. That seems like a natural feature to have.

What i like is that you have to own the game to write a review and is shows how many hours you've played which solves two of the biggest issues of metacritic user reviews.

Sounds like a great feature to me.

Looks good to me, more reviews from actual owners of the game and you can tell how many hours they put into the game! Very Nice.
