We haven't had a single review hit for Underworlds in any country since yesterday morning.

We have been averaging 15-20 reviews a day world-wide per day. The last 24 hours, none. I was interested if anyone else has this same issue.

I've had zero new reviews for any of my apps in days, which is very unusual. I'm not even seeing new non written review star ratings.

Yes, I'm seeing the same thing. Normally I get a few per day, but nothing in the last couple of days.

A bunch of reviews and ratings just showed up, so I guess the problem is fixed now.

New ratings show up for mine too, but for one of my apps, all the written reviews have disappeard. Hopefully it's just being updated...

Yes I noticed this 'lag' with the iTunes reviews too. My game has only come out a couple of days ago, but people had said on the thread that they posted a review and nothing was seen for ages. It took a day or two for the UK store to show the review the member said he posted. Fingers crossed its sorted now. It's not a good thing to happen when the game's only just been released and there's no reviews showing

UK store reviews have disappeared completely!! I had 3 there, now they are all gone. I double checked the US and they are all still there. What the hell is going on with these reviews? I posted several reviews myself in the past few weeks for TV shows and films and they haven't even shown up!
But my main beef is the fact that reviews are disappearing for my game, and that can affect sales. I am mighty pee'd!

[UPDATE] Just checked my game on the iPod touch version of the store, and the UK reviews are all there- so it's a problem with iTunes on the computer. Is anyone else seeing this?

All reviews need to be approved by someone before they will show up, hence the lag.

If a review is not approved, it'll just never appear.
