All current Recommendations to become Reviews.

Steam is continuing its landslide approach into the field of community content creation, taking its recommendations idea and spinning it out into a complete Steam Reviews system.
Under the new approach, reviews can be left on any game you’ve launched via Steam — whether from a CD key you purchased, through a free weekend, or just plain ol’ purchasing through the Steam store.
The reviews will not create an overall “score” for a product, but Valve say they are “looking to add that during the beta”, so it may be introduced shortly.
Reviews will also show the author’s time played alongside each one, which sounds good in theory until you remember that Steam is really awful at tracking how much time each user has spent in game. Still, it’s neat.
