Is it possible for a dev team to remove unwanted reviews at all?

Reason for asking, I checked up on Project Zomboid to see how the updates were coming along, & the game has no reviews whatsoever, except for curator reviews... Considering the game has been on Steam for 4+ years now, I find this highly suspicious.

I tried to post my own review, yet while it's been posted, it doesn't show on the PZ store page.

I've never seen a game with zero reviews before, & I'm sure it had some when I purchased the game.

Any ideas folks?

That's strange. Especially considering the total score says "no reviews" but the recent score is "Mostly positive" based on 238 reviews over the past month.

I've seen someone complaining that Capcom deleted all reviews of Street Fighter 5, and that's actually false, so I guess Steam is bugging out for some people.

And now I'm not seeing any review in any game either. Not even my own reviews, that are still visible. :p
Harvest Moon on Steam? Really? http://store.steampowered.com/app/585900/Harvest_Moon_Light_of_Hope/
May not be a "real" HM, but it does look fun.

OK, that would explain it. So it's not just Project Zomboid. Also, I know Steam rolled out a change to the review system (in terms of displaying them) and at that point it also broke not showing reviews for a bit. I imagine it might be something similar, as in something related to their review display.

Worth noting that I did click on the link in your sig (I'm lazy, it was the first Steam game link available) and it does show reviews. So probably isn't affecting all games but just some.

I doubt it. I think it's just the new review system playing up.

If you untick "helpfulness" filter above the reviews, a ton of negative reviews popped up for Project Zomboid.

Scroll down to the bottom and click on browse all reviews, then change it to "Most Recent". By default it's usually on "Most Helpful".

Whatever was causing this is corrected now. And it definitely wasn't just that filter as the information at the top of the page actually stated there were no reviews for all time. The "helpfulness" filter wouldn't affect that.

Probably just a phase with Steam servers.
It has reviews now.
