The way I see it, there is MORE of a point to reviewing episodic games than there is to writing reviews for the big $60 "AAA" titles. Because with an episodic game, the course of the game itself can change. Because the developers can say "Oh, well, the people who played the first game liked this aspect, but disliked that aspect. What can we do to improve that aspect? How can we continue to provide this aspect?"
For example, it seems like the general consensus is that they got the graphics spot-on, with a couple complaints about little graphical glitches or certain characters (Strong Sad, especially) that look odd in the engine. People seem to be very happy with the writing. The length and/or difficulty of the game seem to be negatives that a lot of people have. Then again, I may be applying my own opinions and noticing them more than others, but the point that reviews and customer feedback ideally play a big role in the episodic model.
