There are two more problems.

(1) Every year there's more and more games -- which means that reviewers only have a short amount of time to spend on each game. So if a game has a deep learning curve, they may fail to understand it and give it a lousy rating.
(2) Game reviewers have their own preferences; the shortage of reviewer means you may wind up with an incompatible reviewer (say, an FPS lover reviewing a RoTK game). Naturally, review scores would be lower simply because they're just not so interested in those genres.
Unless I specifically say otherwise, assume I am talking about historical Three Kingdoms, and not the novel.

I have noticed sites have got better with problem 2 at matching games types to reviewers even if they have to bring someone in for that one. I can see 1 being a problem as they try to blitz through the game
