What is the distinction between ‘previewing’ and a ‘reviewing’ a game?

To us, a preview is a game that has not yet been published. That means the game is currently in prototype or production stages. A review is a game that has been fully produced and is or soon will be available to the public.

We differentiate between the two because we apply different criteria to games that are not yet finished yet from those that are. Essentially, our previews look at what the game seemingly has to offer, whereas reviews take a critical look at which audiences will enjoy it.
