Sure, but you don't need to give the review a bad score because you disagree with it, as long as the author writes a nice review and argues his case cogently. cf. the Odofakyodo review again. I remember you didn't agree with that one much.

afterwards I didn't bother with formal reviews anymore and rather just open a regular forum post free from shackles of reviewing. I enjoy this form of game tourism much more than writing reviews.
Yeah, writing reviews sucks. I don't know why they do it (though I'm glad the people at this site do; I think they have some great writers).

I have to review tons of reports, articles and other publications on a daily basis for work. Don't feel like doing work in form of peer-review-processes in my spare time.
Ah, I can see why you would not then. No objection to that!
