“Great critics don’t focus on questions of good or bad. Their assessments of a film’s success or failure are supported by an underlying philosophy they apply to all films…reading them, you can weigh your own likes and dislikes to determine if you will like a film, based on their review. An enthusiastic ‘This game sucks!’ or ‘The AI is bad’ or ‘This game gets a 4 out of 5′ tells me next to nothing I need to know.”
