All he did was applaud it.
I think I kind of get what you're trying to say here: you want like a meta look at what all the critics are saying? I'm not sure if there's an App Store-specific site like Metacritic, but in case there isn't you should simply take a sample of every site's scores the next time you make a purchasing decision. It's not our fault that you failed to do so.
As for purely applauding a game... I don't think I've ever done that. Every game has a flaw or two, including "Mass Effect 2," which I rewarded a 10 out of 10 for back last January. Again, I think it's vital that I point out everything that it is appropriate in a review and if one of those things is a broken mechanic, then so be it.
