Why does OP state that June 4th is before June 3rd?

1. because it was just the order they were posted, the june 3rd one was later added.
2. because the june 3rd one is only expected, not definate, so i put it under that sub heading :)

Well all the others are expected as well, and the language used implies otherwise "First review is in" i.e

umm no, he said in the magazine they hope to get a review, the other 2 are deffinate, but if you wanna be stubborn and arguementative, i'll put it first, just to stop you moaning.

I get it once a month, it comes in the mail.
And it should have a review. The had B:AA as the cover game, this last month, as a preview.

Alright, I will. Note, the pics will be from my cell phone, so don't expect the best quality.

I'm almost certain the game is going to kick ass, but it will be nice to read the review for the heck of it and then... it's "officially" going to kick ass:nut:.

Not to be a buzzkiller, but given that Eidos has announced a firm release date now I wouldn't expect reviews to be published 2 months in advance. We /might/ get them in the early July mags, more likely the ones in early August. Almost all games have that nasty little moratorium on reviews until the last possible minute. Some companies even set them several days after the game's release (I recall this happened to Transformers: The Game). In that case though, they had seen the scores and didn't want to ruin the first couple days of sales with bad reviews.

Not saying we /won't/ get reviews over the next few days, just saying don't be surprised if they don't publish them so early.

Thats interesting maybe they put the review back because of the delay

Most likely. They said they got the review code just as the last issue went out but maybe they're not allowed to review it yet or something.

Which is basically what I said in my post. Virtually all game publishers block reviews from being published until very near the game's release. IGN for example, even if they got the final review code today it's unlikely Eidos would allow them to post the score until the Friday before the game releases at the very earliest.

Yeah, you're right. :)
