my guess, in case there is any questionable content, which is the primary purpose for reviewing

That is it exactly, because someone out there is going to make the Kirk love simulator (or worse) and its doing to be offensive, deeply offensive.

Its the reviewers job to catch the bad and get it dumped before it can get out there for all to see, If your under 18 and get access to such a thing, then its Cryptic that's now in trouble for allowing underage players access to bad stuff.

This. The purpose of reviewing is to catch any offensive content, such as profanity or someone trying to live out their Vulcan Love Slave fantasies. Probably to catch any copywrite violations, too, but age doesn't matter so much for that.

If you're interested in rating the stuff that makes it past the censors, you should still be able to do that regardless of your age.

Well, I think the age rule is valid personally. I mean, I wouldn't want a bunch of young kids/under 18 teens exposed to missions that are completely inappropriate for the game(which is rated T). Whether it be a large amount of cursing or, much worse, sexual references. No doubt some people will lie about their age to become reviewers anyway, but still.

also cryptic could get in trouble if they allowed people under 18 to see questionable content. Asking if they are 18 is enough to cover Cryptic from any problems

Exactly. And since I myself am currently under 18, I plan to wait until I'm old enough to review.
