Am I the only one that thinks Manveer is talking out of his ass with the review vs. criticism thing? Surely you can't have one without the other...right? The review is there to point out the good things and criticise the bad things. If the reviewer finds the design of a game to be boring, isn't that as valid a criticism as saying the graphics suck balls?
What would a criticism free review even sound like? Every single such review would boil down to something like "when you push the button the guy moves, 5 stars".
