Elden Ring arrived and a good chunk of the PC audience started playing right after midnight, to jump straight into the Interregnum. This allowed the players to Steam to publish your own review. The result? For the moment the audience is quite cold in front of FromSoftware’s game and settles at 59%. Furthermore, it seems that Valve has also blocked reviews, at least for a few hours.
At the time of writing, there are more than 10,000 Elden Ring reviews on Steam and the end result is a 59% positive responses, with a cataloging therefore “Average”. Of course, most of the reviews were made pretty much instantly after launch, with many users having their say after less than an hour of play. Most of the criticism revolves around optimization issues, with an Italian review stating that Elden Ring is basically one big infamous City Open World version.
Furthermore, according to what was reported by a Twitter user, as you can see below, it seems that for at least a few moments the Elden Ring reviews on Steam have been deleted or blocked. However, we don’t know what really happened (and the image shared by the user doesn’t show the whole page, so it could be a clipping from another Steam page, of a game not yet published). At the time of writing, as mentioned, there are reviews on the game’s product page. Even assuming something happened, it could have been a mistake that was quickly corrected by Valve.
In any case, Elden Ring doesn’t have to worry too much about reviews right now, as it shattered contemporary player records of Sekiro and Dark Souls 3.
