Christmas is a-coming. Can you feel it? Can you feel your game store filling up with games you’ve never heard of? Have you seen the annual signs yet like the Call of Duty or Professor Layton games lining store shelves? If you haven’t you’ll see one this week.

As you become a more knowledgeable gamer you have a better sense of how good a game is going to turn out and what you should expect. However, there are still games that can surprise and disappoint and the video game review is essential in our industry in ensuring you have an unbiased opinion to help better inform you. Yet, recently we have seen the line crossed by company’s pushing for a good review. This is where the art and business of a video game review meet.
