if there's a new burger joint opening up in town and your buddy goes and ends up saying "don't go there dude, the sandwiches suck, they're dry, they're small, they're plain, etc..." you take that into consideration and may even make the judgement to not go. Essentially, you just based that decision on your friend's "review."
That's what these reviewers do. They tell us which burgers are juicy and delicious and they tell us which burgers are tough and dry.
It's up to you as the individual to make the right judgement based on their findings; maybe you like tough and dry burgers.
There's a difference though when the reviewer comes out and says "don't eat the burger, it has shards of glass in it and will give you aids." (aka: buggy broken games etc....)
That's how I see reviewers at least
