Most people going to a review just want a concise crap/not crap. A smaller subset actually wants to read. A much smaller subset wants validation for their own fanboyism. You lose the first and last group by dropping numbers.

I think most people going to a review are looking to justify a pre-order. I think most have already made the decision to purchase and want to see good news about the game. It's all part of the hype machine in the end, fans want to see lots of reviews show up praising the game right before launch and they'll lash out at people who don't give them what they want. Honest reviews be damned, they're here to scream and shout how awesome the game is.
