What’s a ‘pre-review’ anyway?

Charlie Hall is Polygon’s tabletop editor. In 10-plus years as a journalist & photographer, he has covered simulation, strategy, and spacefaring games, as well as public policy.

In each episode of Quality Control, a Polygon editor talks to a critic after they review a new game, movie or piece of gear and allows them to add a little bit of extra context and insight. Why did they feel the way they did? What do they wish they had been able to discuss in more depth in their review? Also: Did they play it wrong?

In this episode, Charlie Hall talks with Michael McWhertor about his pre-review of Horizon Zero Dawn. We also chat about what a ‘pre-review’ is to begin with.
