What are WP stack options for “Reviews” + “Articles” site

Site: Reviews + Articles Platform


1. Platform for consumer packaged beverage “Reviews”: This would initially be applied to wine/beer/soda where there is an in-depth “review” page with many values but also ability for users to contribute to that page. third part sales link(s) would be offered.
2. Listing & searching of reviews based of criteria
3. PDF/printing of “Review” page info (example: a wine review page could be printed as a 8.5x11in tech sheet or with other values to make a “shelf talker”x6 sheet for sales rep)
4. Potential future article topics listed with users being able to vote for favorites and submit new ideas

I’m not sure if WP would be the right platform. I’m eyeing Bricks or Oxygen as builders, but am unsure if I can find plugins for these functions or how big of a lift the custom dev would be.

USP Pro for user submitted content seems to offer some of what I want but I don’t know know if it would be easy to connect it to the reviews.

WP Review (pro) seems popular with good reviews but I’m unsure you can make a site out of it instead of having it as a feature of an ecomm sales site.

Any feedback would be great.
