Steam now asks if you want to revise your user review after spending more time with a game

The beta version of the new Steam client (opens in new tab) has started asking players whether they want to revise their user review once they've logged additional hours in a given game.

The new feature, part of Steam's big new library update, was first highlighted by user PunnyCasual on the Destiny 2 subreddit. A pop-up message on their Steam client, which they captured and posted here (opens in new tab), read: "You've played an additional 93 hours. Would you like to revise your review?"

PunnyCasual had logged a total of 97 hours on Destiny 2, suggesting they first reviewed the game after four hours. It's not clear what triggered the message, but it doesn't seem to be specific to Destiny 2: another Reddit user (opens in new tab) claimed they received the same prompt for Hitman 2 after playing 63 hours. My guess is that you'll get the pop-up after a you play a certain number of hours beyond your first review of a game.

It seems like a sensible feature to me. People's views on any game change as they spend more time with it, so it only seems right they get a chance to set the record straight.
