Nintendo takes customer reviews option off their website, no date specified for return

Easy come, easy go, I guess. Just as quickly as customer reviews were added to Nintendo's website for Switch games, the feature has now been yanked. Here's what Nintendo has left in its place.

Customer reviews have been taken offline as we evaluate this feature and its functionality. We currently have no estimated date on when an update will be provided. We appreciate the positive response and thank the reviewers who provided such thoughtful commentary on the games.

As expected people jumping to conclusions and making this a bigger deal than it probably is. A faulty review system (is not even the review system on the Switch eshop, but on a website) tells us nothing about how the Nintendo Switch Online will be or are people seriously thinking that the review systems of other store fronts are so good that they indicate the quality of their online service? Last I saw review systems that allow user comments can be awfully toxic, so maybe Nintendo is trying to improve the system (and PSN for example only allow star ratings not user comment ratings).

Wow, that's terrible. It hasn't even been a week. And doesn't fill me with confidence for any of the more important forthcoming features.

Conference? Do you mean confidence? =P

Yes. Cursed predictive text.

Yeah, this definitely strikes me as Nintendo "getting" online. Here's to an underwhelming paid online service starting in a few months. 🍻 Drink up, you're gonna need it.

When they can’t seem to provide things that should be pretty much considered default it doesn’t give me hope for what they will charge for.

Thank you for a level-headed response.

I'm pretty sure they never announced it... could be an early release by accident? Could be that they found a problem/bug somewhere? Maybe some people abused the system and they realized they would need more moderation? Maybe they didn't think it would get used THAT much and hadn't enough people to moderate, so now they'll try to automate more of it (or find more people)?

Well this is dumb, it was a great idea and actually couls have led to the Switch eShop getting a much needed upgrade. Why are they acting sumb about this? Did they do it too early or something, and NCL got mad, or what?

Kinda lame but I never woulda read any of them anyway. Sucks for people who would.
