Steam introduces user review system

Valve is offering Steam users a megaphone to voice their opinions about games through Steam Reviews.

The new system is about to enter beta, and is set to replace the current Steam Recommendations system – more similar to Facebook ‘likes’ than actual reviews – borrowing the upvote/downvote mechanic of web commentary site Reddit.

Fans will be able to write their own reviews of games, leave comments on other reviews, and give a positive or negative vote letting others know if they found a review helpful.
