Hi everybody. first time here for me.
ok. Siege of Dragonspear has officially moved to "Mostly Positive" on the steam reviews. however the displayed reviews remain negative reviews by individuals who don't appear to have even played the expansion. "446 people out of 584 found this useful". Please, everyone out there looking at getting this game or even just looking at it: check to see if the people complaining have even played it. don't help people harass the developers.
Let's all try to make those steam reviews that show up first ACTUAL reviews.
for those wondering how to check: when you see the review, click on the reviewers name. this will take you to their profile page where you can see their recently played games. Now your looking for an expansion here, so it might say they have played Baldur's Gate but the doesn't necessarily mean they have played the expansion. click on their achievement progress for the game and look for any achievements from the expansion. luckily for us, the developers have made this easy to differentiate. base game achievements are a square icon, expansion are a circle. if you don't see any achievements with the round icons, odds are pretty good that they didn't even play it.
The people causing all these problems claim that their primary concern is ethics in game journalism. I'm going to say that again, because i can't stress it enough. These people claim that their primary concern is ethics in game journalism.
So what I ask of all of you is quite simple. Look at some steam reviews. check if the reviewer played any of the expansion. if they didn't, click the thumbs down. if they did play it, click the thumbs up.
