In reading through the Recruitment thread, reading through everyone listing their skill and time spent on Rock Band,and I wondered just what kind of skills the Beta really needed - what kind of things they were wanting people to look out for. That made me realize that I wasn't quite sure what kind of review was necessary or even appropriate.
So, forum, I pose this question - what makes a review a good, useful review? Is it all just checking to see if everything is accurate and technically correct, or is there some element of preference involved? I've seen a few charts so far that seemed accurate enough, but knew a change here or there would make it more fun. Is it okay to bring those kinds of things up?
Also, how should issues be presented? In some reviews I've seen, authors seem to have had their feelings hurt by issues that a reviewer thought was accuracy and the author thought was preference. What's a good way to tell these things apart, and what's a good tone for delivery?
I'm sure there's more questions than this, but these were my first thoughts on the subject. I also hope this isn't a repeat thread, but I've glanced around and didn't immediately find something similar.
