I think MikelTheLastOne nails it. When they become too old, perhaps they’re purged. Or, a warning on the review page stating “some reviews may no longer be accurate or outdated” or something like that. I don’t think there’s a definitive answer. I do believe there should be a minimum character review though.
It won’t solve it, but things like good game, must buy, avoid, , , garbage, awesome, pish etc etc would be less common. I think players with nothing constructive to say, would be discouraged if they had to think about composing a, let’s say a minimum of 50 to 150 character review.
The 3 star only mentions that it isn’t a completely different type of product - In my view this is a rubbish review and should be purged
The 2 star review praises the product, recommends it and makes no bad points, and ranked it 5/5 for quality and value. -In my view this is utter nonsense, it is almost as if the reviewer hit the wrong amount of stars. In this case, should the review be deleted or amended?
The 1 Star review complained that the product was DOA, and fair enough in my view.
I agree. But I cannot support or denounce the reviews as I don’t know the product. However, there is the option where you can say whether you found the review helpful, yes or no.
Xbox do the same thing, and you can report them, but the report option is limited to offensive and two other options on Xbox. Perhaps an option to expand on why you found it helpful or not.
Either way, the frier reviews are reviews imo. Not just, buy, avoid, dung, don’t buy etc. I think the review process can always be improved, I just wonder if Microsoft think it’s worth investing more in.
