Baldur’s Gate 3 has surpassed 500K reviews on Steam, and Sven Vincke loves reading them

In the six months since its early access release, the role-playing game Baldur’s Gate 3 has received more than half a million reviews on the Steam platform. The founder of Larian Studios, Sven Vincke, did not read all of them, because even at a rate of five seconds per review, it would take him a whole month of reading without interruption. But reading the players’ positive feedback, he said, was “pure pleasure.”


In fact, Baldur’s Gate 3 crossed the threshold of 500 thousand reviews last week, but the Steam count does not include reviews from users who received the game indirectly through the store: for example, those who activated a key purchased on a third-party site. Taking into account such reviews, the total number of reviews for Baldur’s Gate 3 exceeds 560 thousand.

This makes Baldur’s Gate 3 the 25th most reviewed game in Steam history. Moreover, this is the only game in the top 25 released over the past year. The next new product for 2023 on this list, Lethal Company, is only in 40th place with 331 thousand reviews.

Counter-Strike 2 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II inherited all the reviews from their predecessors, so they are not formally considered new titles for 2023. As for Baldur’s Gate 3, the vast majority of positive reviews appeared after the full release – at the start of early access in August 2020 there were about 42 thousand of them. It is also worth noting that some games are free.

Here are the current top 25 most reviewed games on Steam:

  1. Counter-Strike 2/CS:GO: 7,886,129 (Very positive)

It didn’t take half a million rave reviews on Steam to convince Baldur’s Gate 3 of its quality. But the number of reviews is another confirmation of how successful the game turned out to be.

The most discussed new product of 2024 so far remains Palworld with 240 thousand reviews. This is already the 66th place on Steam.
