Here's a concept that will never take hold:

What if someone, when sitting down to review a game, read it alone, thought about it, and then wrote the first part of the review? Then they constructed a scenario or whatever, got together a group, and ran the game, then finished the review.

You might end up with a review structured something like this:

Review of "Some Game"
 - Initial thoughts
   - System
   - Setting
   - Notes on book's appearance
 - In Play
   - System (and what I didn't see while reading it)
   - Enjoyment of game (and viability)
 - Conclusions

I've vague memories of a Tastes Like Phoenix review (or reviewers) that ran along those lines. It's probably the best of both worlds, but it's very time-consuming.
