True. But still, for deep and complex RPGs, the fast and early reviews tend to be skin-deep at best with a lot of reviewers back-peddling or foward-peddling weeks later as seen with games like Oblivion.

If a reviewer gets a copy of the next insert_first_person_shooter_here a few weeks early I can see a review being done when the game starts hitting retail shelves. But for deep RPGs, these reviews seem shallow and for the RPGs I've played relative to respective reviews, a huge disservice toward gamers.
