— As the use of the Internet increase, online reviews also become popular. Usefulness of the reviews can help people to decide product purchase. Many previous researches show that if the quality of reviews was high, the sales volume of that product would increase. Therefore, we investigated that what factors in the reviews can affect the reviewer’s evaluation results. We perform a case study of popular online game reviews, STEAM community review, to identify the influencing variables in review data set using multiple regression method. We also conduct sentiment analysis of review comments to mashup sentiment results to original data set. We will provide analysis results and interpretation of the results with further research directions.
