Would you trust exclusive early reviews? nope never have and never will, I like to go to forums and a lot of game sites, and if there is a demo check that out. Then when that is all said in and done, I way in on all the pros and cons and decide from there.

Bad thing....
... even IF the reviews ARE honest and sincere, I feel that often you can't judge a game while rushing through it in order to get a quick review out of the door.

I ignore them.

I tend never to trust them and always wait for more varied opinions to show up, but it's a case-by-case basis: In the Bioshock example they mentioned here, the exclusive IGN review actually scored lower than the average metacritic. And the same happened before with the exclusive Batman AA/AC reviews at gameinformer

One review is not enough to solidify my purchase.

bad. more opinions are the better.

i also believe that integrity could be lost with this model also. if it hasnt already.

I think most are pretty sceptical about those first reviews, I know I am.

I don't know maybe it is good only one outlet gets to review the game... socialism never failed in my book... Lmao... I'm going to shoot myself now

Its more like exclusive early marketing rather than an actual review.
