While the advantages of actor-only algorithms, the ones that search directly the policy without the use of the value function, are clear (possibility of having a continuous action space, a stochastic policy...), I can't figure out the disadvantages, if not general statements about less stability or bigger variance with respect to critic-only methods (with which I refer to methods that are based on the value function).
