And, erm, which platform(s) is it available on and which was it reviewed on?

I only skimmed it, because there's no point me reading the review if it's only available on a platform I don't have, but I couldn't see any mention.

SHould be right at the top so that readers know whether to bother.

We normally do mention it. For some reason it got missed on this one. Will add it now.

There's no real need for quite such indignation though - you could just Google it.

Indignation? You must have read it different than I wrote it. It was just a quick comment so it probably seems quite abrupt.

However it's a common issue that I have to read through quite a chunk of the article before I find out what platform(s) the game's for, and frequently there's no mention of which version was reviewed. Would be best put in the feature table you tend to have at the top of most reviews.

Fair enough. The changes have been made but it takes an age for them to appear as we wait for our caching system to update.

@Bugblatter - I agree. Also, it's still often the case that games can handle and look somewhat different on each platform - so knowing which system a game was reviewed on, adds some useful context for the reader.

True, if you look at the reviews for Skyrim on the PC it's been panned, particularly for the terrible control system.

The Amazon customer reviews paint a similar story of a very lazy console port.

Luckily I did a little research before buying it and decided not to bother.
