There are currently some issues with Steam which are resulting in game reviews not showing up. So far, Steam has not addressed the situation, but if you are struggling to access peer advice on your latest wishlist item, you’re not alone.

At the time of writing, not only are Steam reviews not showing, but pages are loading slower than usual as well. Be patient. If you click a game page, it will eventually load after a few seconds. Page loading seems to be faster when accessing Steam through a browser, but reviews are not loading in either browser or the app.

Once there, you may find that reviews are not loading. While there are recommended fixes for this, such as restarting Steam or your whole PC – have you turned it off and on again? – this isn’t working today as this is a global issue.

While you cannot currently see Steam reviews, this does appear to be the only main issue affecting the system at the moment. You can still view game information, news, community pages and purchase games through the store.

If you are looking for some guidance before making a purchase, you can still see the overall rating of the game and the number of votes. Hopefully this issue will be resolved soon, but at least it is currently not causing too many major issues with the overall purpose of Steam.

As always, we’ll keep an eye on the situation and let you know when all Steam services are back online. To keep you occupied in the meantime, let us know how important reviews are to you when looking to purchase a new game?
