Professional game reviews aren't any different or better than the average forum post on any given site.

Which is exactly what the fucking problem is. A reviewer is SUPPOSED to be unbiased. If said reviewer liked the game, and everyone else thought it was a turd, he's SUPPOSED to say "I liked it, for this and this reason."

It's fine if he rebuts other people's arguments in his review and say that he thinks it's not as broken as they think, because of so and so (or vice versa, that he thinks something is broken when others say it works great). That's called being an actual reviewer.

Games reviewers are nothing more than freelance marketing peons. "Need your game hyped? Let me review it! What score would you like?!"
