I don't give a lot of credence to pre-release reviews any more. What did the site do to get an advance copy? Probably nothing, but possibly a guarantee of 90+ score.

It's usually just relations between the site and the publisher. Typically favorable reviews are better PR, which result in more games/swag for the reviewer(s). I've also personally seen/been told to raise scores slightly just because the publisher "liked us" or had personal ties to people who worked at the site. Though, it's nothing new.

While I'm sure it's an excellent game, I'm waiting until it's pretty cheap. I've never even fully played through previous Deus Ex games, though I am looking forward to (eventually) playing through this one.
