Online game distribution platforms such as Steam often display ratings and reviews of games by other gamers, letting customers know if a game might be worth their time and money. While reviews for Nintendo Switch games can be found online, they were never really in the same place, at least until now.


It appears that Nintendo is allowing gamers to publish reviews of Switch games on its website. This means that gamers who surf on over to the Nintendo website to browse for games will be able to see reviews and ratings of the game left by other players. At the moment the listing for reviews isn’t as intuitive as other systems, although this is largely due to the fact that Nintendo’s website also plays home to a bunch of other systems like the Wii U, 3DS, and more.

Hopefully this is something that Nintendo will improve over time, but for now at least a ratings and review system has been put into place. However note that gamers can only leave reviews on games that they have played for at least a minimum of 2 hours, which means that this should reduce the chance of fake reviews or review bombings. Users will also need to log into their Nintendo accounts to leave a review, which also helps verify who they are.
