It seemed like that to me too. But apparently they are "test reviews". Giving the game to some people that used to be reviewers and let them write a review like they would have written. Or something like that. In order to better anticipate what the likely response is going to be.
I found that to be very interesting and another thing I didn't know about "proper" game development but it makes total sense to know as much as possible before going forward. (another reason this documentary series is so great. There's loads of stuff in the series that I just wasn't aware of at all)
