Steam reviews - Can you help?

As you might know, TCD's review score on steam is not the greatest. The vast majority of negative reviews cite the player base issues. It'd be good if the review score reflected the recent fixes and was more welcoming for potential buyers.

One thing I've learned myself recently is that as few as 10 reviews can add a RECENT REVIEWS section above the main score. The problem is that only about 1 in 50 people will review a game in the first place. But you can help! I'm sure there are easily ten people on these forums who have bought* the game, enjoyed it, and haven't yet left a review.

*Buying it on Steam is important, since getting a free key doesn't "count" towards the main score.

Don't worry about not have something profound to say. Frankly, the text of most reviews matters very little. It's the numerical score that people see first. This little community could punch above its weight here and potentially add a VERY POSITIVE rating, something that might revitalize the player base even more.

Re: Steam reviews - Can you help?

I just changed the status of my review from not recommended to recommended. I am hoping that it will attract the attention of some new players.

Re: Steam reviews - Can you help?

Thanks for the help everyone. Shame we didn't get more response (I also learned the "recent reviews" can go away if not enough activity in one month... I'm thinking less than 10 reviews).
