Bethesda Responds to Negative Steam Reviews of Starfield

If you think Starfield is a bad game and let your opinion known to the world by leaving a review on Steam, there's a chance Bethesda will respond to your review to prove you are wrong.


As reported earlier today by JuiceHead on X/Twitter, Bethesda Customer Support employees have been responding to negative Steam reviews, attempting to counter criticism regarding, for example, loading screens, which are apparently justified by the sheer amount of the expansive procedurally generated gameplay, empty planets, which are meant to be so by design and more. While it is understandable that Bethesda wants to respond to the excessive criticism that is sometimes aimed at the game, it is not exactly a good look for the company.

While the loading screens and empty planets are definitely a problem, Starfield isn't the disaster that some disappointed players make it out to be. While far from being the best game released this year, I found the latest RPG by Bethesda a solid game that provides a mostly satisfying experience, as I highlighted in my review.

With an engaging story, well-developed characters and lore, and a huge amount of meaningful content, Starfield is one of Bethesda's finest games and one of the best role-playing games released in the past few years. The lack of seamless exploration and real innovation of the typical gameplay formula from the studio are noteworthy, but those willing to forego these issues will find a reactive and sprawling sci-fi universe to lose themselves in for hundreds, if not thousands, of hours.
