Re: Duke Nukem Forever is out Now!

Now, I haven't played the game (and don't intend to) but do you think the main reason as to why it's not meant to be very good (according to the reviews) is because it's probably the most hyped game in existence? It's been in development for 12 years.

Re: Duke Nukem Forever is out Now!

It's probably because those reviewers either have no idea what Duke's about, or they've forgotten. It was never going to be a classic masterpiece with a deep plot and intricate level design. It's a mysoginistic, dick-joke, swear-a-thon with awesome weapons to kill aliens with. Never expect anything more and it's as awesome as it should be.

I lost interest in what you were saying as your taste in games is poor. I haven't played it yet aside from the demo, but I know I'm going to love this game when I play it. If it took itself serious enough to get good game reviews it would not be worthy of the name Duke Nukem.

Re: Duke Nukem Forever is out Now!

its a good game, but i miss the level design of duke 3d, the level design is so linear that it makes it impossible to back track and leaves nothing to explore. Also the regen health and 2 weapon system has made it some sort of weird cod/halo hybrid game. But apart from that its fun as hell. i dont know why people are complaining about graphics, they look fine on my pc. deserves a good 7/10

I wont be replaying the sp again any time soon. But im going to see how long mp lasts with such a small number of maps.

Re: Duke Nukem Forever is out Now!

I don't know why its getting slated, reviewers don't seem to take into account the game is just pure fun.

Re: Duke Nukem Forever is out Now!

Ha, it's funny how panned this game is. Only a handful of places have rated it over 4/10... I'd say "told ya so" but I haven't picked up a copy to check how good it is for myself. Nor will I, but as soon as I find somebody who's been daft enough to shell out sixty bucks for the single most overhyped game to ever exist I'll probably have a quick play.

Also, as untrusting as it sounds, I really hope the GO review is balanced. It's probably safe to say GameOn became a little bit too obsessed with Duke...

Re: Duke Nukem Forever is out Now!

People need to look at the game for what it is, Duke Nukem, puerile childish fun that doesn't take itself to seriously, that's it, accept that and you will enjoy it, if not then the game is not for you, doesn't make it a bad game.
I think these reviewers are trying to compare it to COD or just don't understand what the games trying to be.
That said a lot of the complaints I have read about the game only seem to relate to the 360 version, the PC version is largely unaffected by them so I do wonder why the PC version gets slated for the same problems?
Personally if I were reviewing it I would give it a 7 out of 10, as a shooter its average at best, however Duke for me helps a lot in bringing the overall score up for me, its funny, childish and yea ill play it again just for lolz.

Re: Duke Nukem Forever is out Now!

I didn't realize COD wasn't just childish puerile fun?

(Also I just discovered I've been spelling "puerile" wrong all my life)

I think the problem is people are bumping the score up just because it's Duke. A game doesn't have to be wildly in-depth for it to be great, but c'mon.

From what I can see it's the polar opposite, and they're putting the score down because it's Duke. People are saying it's terrible - then at the end it's 'because it's Duke Nukem and we've waited this long, it should be better.'

Like a few folk here have said, that's the wrong way to look at it. It'd be like a Legend of Zelda game getting delayed for 14 years then when it's finally released reviewers en masse said there weren't enough dick jokes. Duke isn't a serious shooter. It's not hard to grasp (or rather, apparently it is), it's not trying to be game of the year, or compete with Half Life for story-telling and atmosphere. It's going for humour and killing ****, which it does adequately enough.

The only major complaints I have with the game on the whole, is regenerating health (which I despise in all games, not just this) and the maps aren't as open (thus filled with next to no secrets). Other than that, I play, I shoot things, I laugh at the jokes and enjoy it for what it is.

Re: Duke Nukem Forever is out Now!

I was meaning more actual secrets over easter eggs. Like in Duke 3D where you'd find one in a wall or behind a bookcase with an Atomic Health or something hidden there. It's not needed in this because of sodding regen health.
