CheatCC - Game reviews have changed a lot since the inception of gaming. Before we had the internet, game reviews were kept to magazines that came out once a month. That meant that you likely weren’t going to hear a professional opinion on a game you want to buy until far after it had hit the market. We didn’t particularly care, though. People who had faith in the game by title and brand alone still pre-ordered the game, and everyone else waited to see what everyone else thought. People who needed their info at release would instead rely on previews to show them what the game would be like. This also meant that reviewers had more time to review whatever game they were playing, as long as their article was ready in time for the magazine to go to print.
