How is it possible the game hasn't a review?

User score is 8.6.

Is it publisher's fault?

Only one trailer, no gameplay videos... really poor coverage for an outstanding gem like this.

Gamespot is a very popular site, I think the publishers should do something to change this situation for good.

thanks for reading,

If it is their fault, I'm glad they spent the extra budget on creating an amazing game, rather than on advertising.

But they definitely deserve more sales!

I don't think Gamespot will mind that much about DKS as long as there's no US publisher contacting them.

Forgive my ignorance on the subject, but do you mean that DKS is not sold in USA? I think you can buy it in steam...

Any clue, please?

It's the XBox 360 version that isn't available in the US or Canada - you're correct that the PC version is available worldwide. Regiion locking is the main resion I've never owned a console.

Gamespot reviews blow anyway..
I never read them anymore..of course I don't read any " Official " reviews anymore.

I read the actual game forums, play the demos..and read actual owner / players opinions...not some guy who has 40 other games to get through.


People say I'm crazy..but the voices in my head say I'm just fine.

Wow I thought gamespot reviews were realistic. They gave 5.5 to AVP and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II. Here in spain we are screwed if we believe to Micromania's reviews (never below 80).

I read editor's review first pharagraph, and then The Good and the Bad. Then I read lots of players reviews, specially the lowest scores and the highest.

I have been a member there for over 5 years now and enjoy posting on their forums. Their reviews, however, often leave me scratching my head. As they are inconsistent at best.

That said, I am sure that the DKS will be reviewed there once it releases in the US. Not that I care what they will give it, but I still want the game with all of it's upgrades and new content to be received well for the sake of the developers.
