To use RTC Code Review you must first enable the presentation in the work item that you want Code Review to appear on (Note: This is a 1 time effort.). The steps for doing this can be seen here:

Once the presentation is added, you need 3 conditions to start a code review
-Attached change sets to the work item
-The change sets must be closed/completed
-A target stream must be set (there is a button to set it on the Code Review presentation)

Once this is done, a Code Review object is created and associated to the work item (at the same time, a link will be created to the work item and Code Review object (and will appear in the Links tab of the work item).

Also, you can now write a work item query to find work items with a code review. In the Eclipse client for example, when adding a new condition to the query editor, you need to click on the check box called "Show links" at the bottom of the dialog in order to have the "code review" link type be found.
