Some folks might want to play it in handheld form though.
As someone who only plays docked and has this pre-ordered, I'm fine with how it looks. I've thoroughly enjoyed games that looked worse.
I'm one of those who don't quite understand playing this type of games in handheld mode, however I do recognize there are people who want that (for whatever reason).
As for docked...as I said, if there is an option to play it somewhere else, do yourself a favour...you will like (or not) the game on its own merits either way, but this version, no matter how much devs have put effort in it, doesn't look very good.
