Both an Appeal and a Review has as its objection, the setting aside of a conviction or sentence. Both of these two remedies differ in nature and it is imminent that the correct procedure should be used in any particular set of circumstances.

The Appeal procedure is used to contest the correctness of a verdict or sentence based on the merits and the facts of the case and the law relevant thereto.

On the other hand a Review is more concerned with the correctness of the procedure in reaching a verdict or sentence or the validity of the proceedings.
