Editors' Review

+

Steam is your one-stop shop to purchase, download, and play a large variety of video games. Featuring a creative community, massive library of games, and unique design, Steam is a revolutionary program.

Pros

Large, contributive community: We logged on to Steam and observed that over 5 million individuals had used the program within the last 48 hours. This community discusses current events on message boards and uploads images, videos, and game modifications, constantly.

Appealing, sleek design: The layout of this application is organized and attractive, featuring a dark, contrasting color scheme that makes video game thumbnails stand out. You will find the games library and message boards to be very engaging due to the substantial amount of content offered.

Easy downloading: Steam features a large collection of games readily available for download. These games span anywhere from free and independent to expensive and well known. Our download speeds ranged from 2-4MB/s over Wi-Fi, so full games could be played within 30-60 minutes.

Cons

Occasional slowness: Launching the Steam application is often slow, and switching tabs and windows sometimes temporarily froze our computer. These freezes last a second or so, but you may become annoyed with this problem if it persists.

Bottom Line

Steam is a great service for anyone that plays video games, regardless of frequency or genre. You will enjoy the unique members and variety of games available. A similar program, GOG, offers video game soundtracks, artwork, and other bonuses when you make a purchase. Steam could improve its already amazing track record by including bonuses like this. We suggest downloading Steam for all gaming needs as you will find the entire experience to be one of a kind.
