"When I read a video game review of any sort, be it professional or otherwise, I carry aboard certain expectations. I expect the critic to have a base level of gaming competence as to not compromise the review with irrelevant frustrations of their own creation. I expect the critic to have the writing ability to expound on their praises with clarity and levy criticism with incisiveness. I expect the critic to have finished the game, or to have experienced enough content to render sound judgement in the rare cases where just "beating" the game would be short of comprehensive.
Many reviews fail to meet even these most basic of standards."
