For example, I've been scanning the Wikipedia page for Kid Icarus Uprising, in which Game Informer complain about the risk of RSI and give the game a 7/10; and looking at the review I can see that he spends most of them time complaining about the control system. To which I respond thus: given that I've had no problems with hand cramps or anything of a similar ilk, maybe you're too old and crippled to be playing games. Good day, sir.

Ninty fanboy in 'I don't like review that is slightly negative to a Ninty game' shocker
The problem with reviews for me is that if it is an AAA game it has to be 8-9 or 10 if it's damn amazing. That is very little scope. Also every reviewer is different, some might be a fan of the series and love this one, some might be a fan of the series but think this defiates to mich from them, some might dislike the genre but love the game, or vice versa. Reviews are meant to be unique and have a lot of variety for the same game purely because the reviewers are all different and so the game appeals to them in different measures. But they all seem to be exactly the same, with the same faults and the same plus points.
