Ben and I are compiling a list of potential reviewers for Fleet that will then get approved and scrubbed by the publisher as they have final say ofcourse. I do not track the reviewers much so I am looking for input on whois good/hot right now. I like drive-thru but Joel (

I enjoy the two player video reviews by Rahdo. He essentially describes game mechanics very thoroughly and gives a perspective on play with just two.

You've already compiled a good list, however, and I'm just throwing another out there. If you can reawaken Drakkenstrike or the UFBRT reviews, then that'd be cool too.

Since we tracked the Kickstarter project in our Kickstarter segment, and I backed it as well; we'll do a review on our podcast along with the follow-up written reviews for the website.

For a game like Fleet, I would put most weight behind the following short-list of reviewers:

Ryan Metzler (I'd like to see a new review to replace the paid-preview of Fleet)
Ender
Richard Ham (2-player hands-on)

Thanks Matt!

And I just went back and looked and I backed for 2 copies. So that probably means a review and a give away in the future from All Us Geeks. ;-}

I imagine by the time I get my copy, there'll already be plenty of other vids for the game. So I suspect Joel will beat me by a country mile.

Mine has to be sent to the UK (as it was part of a group order) and then it will have to be forwarded on to me here in Malta. So I expect it'll be a looooong time before I see it...

I always watch Joel and Lance's videos (and of course Tom Vasel's preview/reviews). Those are really thorough and great! So I'd love to see them review this game.

Edited:
Joel's reviews make me want to play & buy the games (great overview of how to play the game and great feedback about the game)
Tom's reviews make me want to buy! the games (great enthusiasm)
Lance's reviews also make me want find out more about the games (great feedback about the game)
Scott Nicholson's reviews are what I miss the most hehe

Someone who feels inspired to write a review, would get my nomination.

Whilst I admit to being unfamiliar with such affairs, this thread leaves me wondering whether it is customary and/or desirable for a game reviewer to be selected via a publisher's vetting process?

Totally understand. Only people that want to review Fleet, or any game, would be selected. With that said, there is no shortage of volunteers when a free game is involved, so some selection is necessary. The amount of requested review copies always exceeds the actual copies.

Anyone that buys a game can review it if they like, but for the limited free copies I think the selction is based wholly on who gets the most hits. In this case, I asked the question because I admit I do not watch a lot of reviews (I watch Joel and Ryan Metzler on occasion) so I wasnt sure who was hot or even still active.

For example, I had never heard Richard (Rhado) (well i had spoken to him in a thread) as a reviewer prior to this. Turns out he is very good and very popular!
