There's no doubt some of these too-early reviews are rushed but the well-organised publishers do make it easy. With some review packages you receive a copy of the gold master, documentation including game highlights and notes ("make sure you go to xxx and enter this code for a cool easter egg" and "don't miss the secret door in level 3") and save games with multiple characters so you can jump further into the game at will.

Having said that, I don't like the practice at all. It's too easy to review something that's pulled or patched before release, or, write a glowing review because you've rushed it out for an exclusive deal.
