    As noted
    , as of recently, users could leave reviews for Switch games on Nintendo of America's website. This feature has now been taken down, lasting just a couple of days. It's not certain whether user reviews will return, as Nintendo doesn't currently have an estimated date on an update.

    It was a bold move and I guess it didn't work.

    So basically, Nintendo confirmed for not being able to tolerate criticism, or accept any attempt at constructive feedback.

    Why, oh why, am i not surprised?

    Constructive feedback. On the internet. You're hilarious.

    Review bombing is still a problem even for some Steam games unfortunately. Too many shitty people out there.

    So, basically, you have no idea what you are talking about.

    Why, oh why, am I not surprised?

    Why add a review system to just remove it a few days later? Hm. I can only imagine. Maybe they're looking for a way to better it?

    Maybe they could tie it to the consoles themselves and use an authorized purchaser system, like Amazon does. Won't stop all of the troll reviews, but it would stop random people posting nonsense. At least, random people without a Switch/3DS

    lmao, of course they couldn't handle the roasting because it would actually make them look bad. I'm honestly not surprised. Nintendo is the kind of company who doesn't care about consumers or their feedback because they "know it best" by keeping everything the same old-fashioned way. Obviously they didn't take it off due to fanboys praising their amazing rehashed titles. xD

    Pretty bold assumption to make without knowing why it was taken down so fast.

    Did they have any verification method in place that the reviewer actually bought/played the game? Or could just anyone walk in and leave a review?

    Most likely the same reason they took down Miiverse so early: They want to moderate everything so badly but realized they can't or that it would get expensive so they just made a U-turn. It's typical for Nintendo to silence criticism and protect their children customers from bad language/people (see how their online titles are designed: no built-in free text messages and no voice chat either). You can't easily reach Nintendo customers via Nintendo platforms/systems.
