WF Review Plugin for WordPress Review
The WF Review Plugin is a WP review plugin that is particularly useful for the creation of a large number of reviews in a very small period of time.

The WF Review plugin helps you create a WP review/comparison site in the least amount of time. It is actually as simple as setting up a WP site, activating the WF Review plugin, using the CSV importer to access and setup thousands of reviews, generating automatic user ratings and comments and viola – your WP-based review site is ready to go live.
The plugin supports all WP themes as it allows you to autoembed rating buttons and other features. These features can be turned off and you can tweak the CSS files manually to suit your needs. The latest version of the plugin allows creation of custom posts and also automatically generates comparison tables making your review site truly interactive and user-friendly.
The WF Review plugin also comes with 3 bonus themes and a powerful comment generation feature which lets you generate thousands of relevant comments at the click of a button. This feature also gives you the option to choose the gender of the commenter; making it very convenient to add comments about gender specific products (make-up, wallets, sport shoes etc.)
The affiliate link manager which comes as part of this plugin helps you set up affiliate URLs in a simple and hassle-free manner. These affiliate links can also be cloaked at the press of a button. The WF Review Plugin also comes with comprehensive tracking options (support for Google Analytics and Prosper 202) and allows you to set up Google Maps on your WP review site.
The plugin has a $89 single site license fee which goes up to $139 for multiple sites. All future upgrades are free and the developer offers on-site IM and e-mail support. The developer has chosen to keep the documentation basic and instead offers video tutorials. Unfortunately most of these video links are for earlier versions of the plugin and they haven’t been updated in some time.
The plugin is not compatible with web hosts who do not support the IonCube Loader. This otherwise minor problem is a put-off for many people as they have to change their web hosts if they wish to use this plugin. Another problem is the lack of any support for the hReview microformat making this plugin less SEO-friendly as compared to other WP review plugins
If you are looking to setup a WP-based review/comparison site for a large number of products in a limited amount of time and you also want to automatically add a large number of user comments and ratings to your review site then the WF Review Plugin is an option for you.
On the other hand, if you want to create a niche review site with authentic reviews and user comments then there better alternatives available.
Having said that, the WF Review plugin is a competent and effective WP review plugin which does its job in a limited amount of time, saving you lots of time and effort.
The worst part about this plugin is that it seems not to be updated frequently. Support is not available!!!
