The requirements are pretty low for the game. Also, often there are review sites that post reviews day of release.

I'm sure many enjoyed ACM but that doesn't mean everyone. It doesn't mean DS didn't have significant flaws in eyes apart from the "Dark Souls community" who petitioned for it. Being the exact copy of the console is the reason for it being unoptimized for the pc. That's not difficult to understand for anyone who knows what a port is and a rushed port at that.

I have spoke about mods before. I love mods but to those who don't want to have to use mods to have an enjoyable experience, I completely understand. Of course you would fault the customer's lack of knowledge about mods as well? You say "enhance the experience" and I say "fix." Well, one mod is called "dsfix", sooooo...The modding community had to step in to correct what should have already been corrected. That's my problem. Leave it to the customer to worry about.

Yeah and quite honestly, the reviews that are released day one or before, meaning they received an early copy, are not the most reliable in my mind. Usually, there are very few on day one and especially for low budget ports. It is best not judge it off of one or two reviews. IGN is one of the primary review sites and often times they do have reviews up early. I still wouldn't read their review and buy the game solely based off of it but I'm sure there are plenty that do. IGN's DS pc review wasn't up until August 31, 2012 and the game was released August 23rd. Yet, to those who don't wait to read reviews, while I don't agree with it, I don't place greater blame with them over the company who intentionally leaves important details out of advertisement and product information on any retailer site.
