adj. An imprecise criticism of game rules. Typically the critic disagrees with the rule abstractions utilized by the game designer and believes they are inconsistent with the critic's understanding of the conditions the game should be modeling. The critic suggests that a closer examination of the conditions being simulated would lead to more reflective rules.
