having read any reviews of it beforehand?
Honestly I can't really think of one in recent memory lol. I think I'd have to go back to PS1/N64 era.

I read and watch multiple Reviews before. Always !
Last impulse game I purchased was Portal 2 only because I played it before and wanted to finnish it so I bought for myself. As for DiRT 2, I played the Demo and bought the game..... Twice !
Oh and I think I bought Assassin's Creed II and Brotherhood impulsively but thats because I liked the original.
Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag.
I had ruined the surprise of both Revelations and ACIII by watching a bunch of trailers and reading and watching reviews. So with Black Flag, I wanted to go in with a completely open mind with almost no pre-game impressions. It paid off.
hardly ever watch/read reviews of anything. I either know I'm going to like the game regardless of what someone being paid to be heard says or I am hesitant, but ultimately trust the comments of people I know who bought the game/ consensus of gamers who made the purchase on the internet.
I don't really read reviews for games I'm going to buy. I'll watch a GB quicklook which is usually more informative than a review. Steam and smaller games have allowed that luxury of throwing caution to the wind on something that looks interesting, be it good or not.
