While this hasn't been rolled out the to the SE sites, Stack Overflow is experimenting with a new review bar, which ditches the inaccurate rollup number entirely and breaks it down by review type

They'll probably roll this out in 6-8 weeks


As already explained here on the general stackexchange meta, the review counter is the global count of review tasks for the complete community, not your personal count. It also includes the number of review tasks you have already handled (or can't handle) but which are still in the review queue for others.

This behavior is constant throughout the stackexchange network, so whether or not this is a good design is a topic for the general Stackexchange meta, not the specialized Politics.SE meta.
