I tend to read the reviews only to pick up on how the game is played. Is it true Point and click? How's the interface? Is there a LOT of dialog? Any Glitches?
That's about it ! I'll probably wind up getting a game just because it's there!
As far as critics go, I would be the guy you ALL throw tomatoes, vegetables, and other garbage at... I'm very difficult to please and I am running into a bunch of bad games lately.
