No thanks. Any game that has "review embargoes" is of no interest to me. Not at least until some real players review it, instead of paid shills.

Embargos don't mean shills. Not even sure how you'd expect that.

Well, the translation of a review embargo that ends a day before the release is:

Please give us favorable reviews in exchange for your right to publish early reviews (and if you want to receive keys before the release day in the future then make sure it is extra favorable).

Also, check out the Eurogamer link. They have received their review copy at the very last minute. Who knows when the other gigs got their copies? It could very well be that they also received the keys very late but still published their reviews just to have them out before tomorrow. Cuz clicks and ads.

Given the hype and regarding the fact that Bethesda apparently tried to "promote" positive reviews by setting that embargo as well as by possibly intentionally providing review keys rather late in time, I'd say that the reception is pretty damn lukewarm so far.

If I weren't intending to wait for the GOTY anyways then I'd take those scores as a huge caveat emptor. Sounds like the game is shallower than a puddle.

I also think that their product policy sucks. The already announced expansions reek of cut content. You only get the first expansion as a part of the deluxe version. The second one is apparently not included.
Seems pretty fishy. Looking at these reviews I have a suspicion that the base game has flashy gfx and solid combat but that they will add the actual content via the DLCs.

So, cya (maybe) at xmas sale 2020, Rage 2.
