The review should tell the reader how good the game is for them. I hate it when reviewers give 95/100 scores for a game that ends up with <70 average score from users. Thats basically a bad review thats alien to what users need to know.

Well since we will need a "review" for that, I just would like to add two important things for whats define a good review. Unbiased review and actually playing the game to play it (Aka someone who plays games). There is more of course, and Im sure if everyone participate we will have an almost good list of what makes a good review.
I'm not sure how much gameplay and such is needed for a good game review, but I personally enjoy Escapist's "Zero Punctuation". I've watched every single game review there. They make me laugh, every time.
