Sorry, pet peeve here, but the very nature of a game review insinuates that it is the subjective viewpoint of the reviewer. There are some things in the world that can be said to be reviewed objectively (the efficiency of a car engine for instance), but any time one enters the arena of entertainment it’s clearly going to be a subjective opinion.
The trick is to learn how your opinions are calibrated versus a review.
