Re: Why not just tweak these for best shot in all reviews?

doing a decent job now of showing us what some of the individual
tweaks do.

Correct. But so many of Nikon's default choices are "off" that you still won't see what the camera really does unless you combine all those. In particular, try Neutral, Sharp +5, Contrast -1 at a minimum to get a better starting place for most outdoor images. Also note that proper white balance intersects this, too.
