Disagree. This review points out everything the Order set out to accomplish, and reviewed it. Yeah he mentioned the way others reviewed it, but his points have Merritt. The orders still being reviewed for what it is, not for what was expected.
Then why did all the bad reviews confirm what was expected months in advance? Doesn't look to me like an issue of high expectations.
