Default Prototype Reviews?

It only just occurred to me now, but with the game coming out on Tuesday, where are the reviews for this game? Some Infamous reviews broke weeks before the game came out, and we're now literally less than 48 hours away from Prototype's release and there was nothing on Friday?

Was it just E3, or is this one of those "Oh, oh, better the hold the reviews back so as not to impact sales" tactics?

Fallout 3 had like zero reviews until literally the day of release. Maybe a similar thing is happening here.

I been waiting for reviews.

I read some people's reviews that got the game already on gamefaqs. Said game is real short like 6 to 7 hours short without side missions.

said it was more a rent than a buy

6 to 7 hours is perfect for me. I don't have infinite time, and adding on the side missions probably makes it closer to 15 to 20. That's freaking fine with me.

To date the game has three reviews.

The Playstation 3 version earning an 8 from Official PlayStation Magazine UK, and a 9 from PSW UK Magazine.

The PC version was scored 70% by PC Zone (August 2009) Summarising positively with "Wonderful free Roaming", "Slash people up real good", "Stunning views". But negatively with "Missions are a bit dull", "Too many features?" and "Weak visuals"

I'm gonna wait for some reviews and go from there. Prototype just seems its going to be not all that great to me right now, but that can change.

About what infamous is if you stick to the story. It depends, I'd like them to define whether there aren't any side missions, or did they just not do them.

I honestly wouldn't mind a short game if it's cool. I've got enough shit to play as well.

Well I hope the reviews come in very strong. The previews and trailers make it looke like the sandbox equivalent to 'Hulk: Ultimate Destruction' which was a ton of fun.
