I disagree. You don't need to have near identical tastes to the reviewer; you only need to know them (both your tastes and the reviewer's), and make sure the reviewer explains in detail what they liked/disliked and why.Joccaren said:If a reviewer simply reviews a work based purely on their enjoyment, its not very informative to their readers. Sure, you know if they enjoyed it, but you'll usually have very little idea on whether you will, unless that reviewer has near identical tastes to you - and even then they'll usually differ in some key aspects.
You may not claiming to be asking for the 100% objective review, but you are very insistent on objective information as more informative and useful to the reader. That's a false assumption that expects the readers to know how to convert objective information into useful information. Unless you know something about game design, how does reading a review explaining in detail the design of the game help you in deciding to buy it or not? You have no frame of reference.
