While sometimes less is more, I would definitely have a fishy smell in my nose if a dev chooses to not have reviews enabled
GOOD (!) reviews help everyone, gamers AND the devs themselves.

Not sure I like this but I guess you can always just go online to see how it is
Although if they start getting bad reviews and they opt out that will be shady

not when you have childish tantrum filled rageaholics who do review bombs because they are angry at something that is not the product in question.

I dont accept any user review. Too much toxicity. I prefer proper sites

Well there's a better way for that, like on Steam it says there has been an influx of bad reviews recently. That way customers can be the judge and not the company.

Yeah, user reviews are always pretty useless regardless of whether it's Amazon, eBay, ect. Usually bad reviews means someone didn't know how to use something, or bought something they couldn't use. If a game has good reviews, it means a newer game in the series recently came out and everyone is coming to say how much better the one just before was. Whenever I see a game has an influx of bad reviews on Steam it generally seems to mean loads of people are getting triggered over the fact they think a liberal agenda is being forced on them or something as a result of some dumb twitter politics or whatever.

If devs don't want you to review their game, I think it's safe to assume the worst.

User reviews =/= Reviews.
User reviews are the random arguments and illegible text at the bottom of a store page, reviews are things done by journalists that people take notice of and assign value to.
