You might have a point as far as the commercial sites (like IGN, GameSpy, GameSpot, 1UP etc) are concerned. It's probably a result of the rather insane number of high profile game releases this fall/winter. From Sims expansions to BF2142, Company of Heroes, Gothic III, SC: Double Agent, MTW 2, NFS: Carbon, several Warhammer games/expansions, NWN II, F.E.A.R expansion, LotR: Battle for Middle Earth expansion, Star Wars EAW expansion, DMoMM, Oblivion expansion, Anno 1701, The Guild II, all the way to the WoW: BC beta those paid guys/writers must be running on a very tight schedule which leaves very little time for actually playing most of these games for more than a couple hours, leave alone finish any of them. That might explain (not excuse) the recent relatively high number of seemingly rather superficial reviews/previews/beta reports.
