Very true indeed, but when there is a huge discrepancy between the average user and professional review score, then something fishy is going on. Just look at the Metacritic score of DA2 and ME3.

That is what I normally do. I rarely read "professional" reviews but tend to look for rationally and well written user reviews whose tastes are similar to mine.

I don't think it is rubbish at all. Considering the large amounts of money involved, there is just too much at stake. Just to be clear, I am not a conspiracy theorist, far from it, but I don't buy the claim that sincerity and integrity drive all ratings.
