It seems that Starfield is even dividing Steam users who, to date, seem not to have appreciated Bethesda’s latest effort in the same way as the software house’s other major productions.
Just take a look at the Steam pages of Bethesda titles to notice that Starfield is not among the games with the highest ratings, on the contrary. As we are writing to you, in fact, the game set in space is the penultimate game from the studio acquired by Microsoft with the lowest percentage of positive votes and the only one that manages to do worse is Fallout 76.
Here are the top Bethesda games on Steam with review details:
The Elder Scrolls III Morrowind Game of the Year Edition: 95% positive votes from a total of 22,684 reviews The Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion Game of the Year Edition: 95% positive votes from a total of 42,343 reviews The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim Special Edition: 94% positive votes from a total of 266,123 reviews Fallout 4: 83% positive votes from a total of 318,019 reviews Fallout 3: 79% positive votes from a total of 18,480 reviews Starfield: 76% positive votes from a total of 266,123 reviews total of 79,373 reviews Fallout 76: 75% positive votes from a total of 89,476 reviews
Between the more frequent criticisms of the negative votes we find the optimization problems for Nvidia GPUs, the presence of numerous loading screens and the small number of activities available on the various planets. It should be underlined that, despite being a less exciting result than the other products mentioned, the 76% obtained by Starfield is absolutely not bad compared to the average rating on Steam. Furthermore, we cannot exclude that further reviews may arrive in the future which will contribute to an increase in the percentage, allowing the game to position itself higher in the ranking.
In the meantime, we remind you that the new Nvidia update improves Starfield’s performance with some video cards.
