@truthtellah: Sure I can read other reviewers. That is not an issue, I know how to use the internet. My problem lies in everything that both Patrick and Alex outline and I'm kind of shocked that they'd advocate this shift away from objective writing to a more stylized and specific subjective review. Why would I read a review to find out something I already know? A good reviewer will challenge your own opinions, a good reviewer will make you think. A good reviewer isn't going to forgo shortcomings in favor of other elements when it does the review a disservice. Most importantly a good reviewer won't be predictable in their scoring.
