I'm glad it's not just me! I thought it was my iPad that was wonky, so I kept force quitting the app and restarted my iPad a bunch of times before giving up. The new App Store seems to be very buggy. You would think Apple would have tested it out before letting it go live.

Yup. Me too. Submitted a bug report on it this morning. (Which, btw, is waaaay too hard to figure out how to do.)
I am very much not the novice when it comes to this stuff, but I must say that the problem seemed so simple that I was having trouble letting go of the thought that maybe I was the problem, because I kept thinking there's no way that something that simple could have got through the iOS6 App Store QA, right? (Cue Murphy... lol)
Anyway, ***** it's not working, but I'm glad to know that I'm not alone. I feel better, oddly enough.

Broken on an iPad 2 and iPhone 4 here in the UK. It doesn't even acknowledge the panel being pressed.
Did the Quality Control people really miss such an obvious problem?

Yes - same problem on both iPhone4S & iPad3.
"More Reviews..." is completely non-functional. Tried re-boot on both units to no avail.
What I really wanted to do was to sort reviews like I used to (by "most critical" or "most recent" etc). Not seeing this option under the dedicated Reviews tab was a disappointment. I proceeded to click "more reviews..." hoping the option would appear there. My disappointment turned to horror when I realized I wasn't getting anything.
This is an unacceptable and in-excusable bug for the "polished, refined, and it-just-works" experience which Apple is supposed to be known for.
The new App Store in general is a disappointment to me. Am I the only one let down here? All I see are raving reviews about how "fresh" and "clean" and enjoyable the new store is.
IOS 6 APP STORE Issues / Complaints / Let-downs:
- "More Reviews..." does not work.
- The new tile view structure has shrunken the footprint of where the apps are presented, resulting in the app's names being truncated in many views. For similarly named apps, you need to link into each one's full description to see if it's the app you're looking for.
- Description views on iPad are needlessly constrained to a small pop-up window. Why are you cramming information into this reduced area, and making us scroll pointlessly while leaving the bulk of the screen space unused ???
- App Search on iPhone is HORRENDOUS. Results are not list-able! You get ONE result on the screen at a time. You need to swipe right to get the next single result... and again for the next... and on and on. And there is no swipe "momentum" to flip back and forth through multiple items. You need to swipe your finger on each and every item to move to the next. So after I swipe right twenty times to get an overview and decide I want item 2 after all, I need to give 18 individual swipes back to the left to get back to it.
