Addressing gameplay is probably the most important. Graphics and sound should be touched on obviously as well and the overall presentation. And also I think it's very important to not give any spoilers in a review. That's the last thing gamers want to see IMO. I know I always get irritated if a reviewer totally gives something away from the story.

If a game is having technical issues, especially game breaking ones, they need at the very least a mention.

Review scores themselves need to go away as well. Replace them with short summaries.

The problem with reviews is that they are too opinion based. A review telling people you should rent this or buy this or pass on this are wrong on a fundamental level.

Reviews should be more cryptic, there should be control and a system of measurement. For instance lets say we use Uncharted Crysis as the graphic control.... So if something has. Better frame rate and higher resolution with good stability Crysis score is 9 so the game in review would get a 10 on graphics. And so on and so forth for every other aspect of the game.

And I don't think reviews should made unless the reviewer has a mastery of playing the game. I don't want some one telling a game is broken because they suck at playing it.
