I end up reviewing in both context and project mode. In project mode, I group and sort by review date, but if some actions within a parallel project have a due date and others don't, I tend to drag those actions to the top of the project (unless there's an implicit due date on the others).
In context mode, I first group and sort by completion date and show completed actions, to see what I have gotten done since the last daily or weekly review, and then group and sort by due date, to see which actions I need to have on my radar screen lest they blow up in my face.
I've set up perspectives for these views, which speeds the review along.
By the way, it seems to me that you ought to be able to sort by due date within each project by doing the following:switch to context view, group by project, and sort by due. However, it doesn't seem to work that way.
