Here are my thoughts:

1. Almost all of those sources get large amounts of advertising revenue from EA. That doesn't always influence the reviewer directly, but it does influence the company when they assign the review.

2. Especially for print publications, the reviews were done 6 weeks ago. I doubt any reviewer made it all the way to 50. The leveling experience is TOR's strength. The reviews should be good for the part of the game they played.

3. A large number of reviewers are gaming snobs. They've been waiting for a game to come along that they can latch onto as the WoW killer. That will heavily influence reviews.

Ray, you failed to deliver my possibility space.
