I dunno, I read that review. The reviewer never figured out to turn on elective mode, so he could play a build he wanted to. I do get that it isn't the most obvious option, but I would find the skill system very limiting without it too.
I don't blame someone for missing it, even a reviewer.

In fact, Blizzard said that they don't want that option to be obvious. They said its too confusing for new players, and that in testing when stuff like that was on, it confused new players. They said that anyone who needs to play with that will know about how to do it, and the rest probably don't want to play it like that.

They were talking about it in the AMA on reddit, and thats what I got out of what they were saying. Seems pretty stupid to me. At the very least, after finishing the game on normal, if its still off, the game should popup something and mention it. Its an important option for people who intend to play up into inferno.

I agree that option should be front and center - at least after you unlock a few other skill slots. I've played the game with a few non-gamers and they preferred it as well. Saves them from the "I don't want to get rid of this to use this" problem.
