    I've read many people say just that. So many people claimed how it would be the best game ever just because it was Duke. I've seen the game in action and I'm totally unimpressed. I visited this thread because I was bored and it's a forum.

    The good news is I'm glad some of you like it. At least it was worth the money for you guys.

    well eitherway ill wait an see got a few people helping me out going to do a full featured TPU review of Duke Nukem from graphics to gameplay mechanics to controls, whats on offer and whats missing what was good and whats bad, and of course if the Tits Ass and Guns were worth the cost.

    granted the review is not sponsored or endorsed by TPU but youll only be able to see it and read it on TPU so :toast:

    No point, it's like they completed it in 2006 and just sat on it until now........ really!

    Let me elaborate, not just graphics wise but gameplay also it looks and feels like a 2006 game, sorely disappointed in this game so far, the physics are like f.e.a.r 1, the graphics are probably on par or worse, the gameplay is repetitive, the AI is non existent

    The biggest point is ... wasting 14 years of life .. however my expectations were much hihger , since i didn't waited for the game like 14 years, but only maybe like 2 ... didn't actually waited , there was a big pause between too , heck i never though of regen health and 2 FREAKING weapon limit

    and that would be your opinion mine on the other hand is the Demo was fun as hell, ill reserve judgement till i play the game,

    I look at it this way, Duke Nukem is Duke Nukem

    if wanted an RPG linear game id play Final Fantasy
    if i wanted a pos console shooter id play Call of Duty
    if i wanted a teamwork FPS id play Battlefield
    if i wanted a racing game id play Gran Turismo

    if i want to shoot shit, see tits and ass, blow shit up drive a monster truck, and generally have a good time without sweating the small stuff id play you guessed it Duke Nukem, now in a few hours we will find out if i feel the same way or not. As with all games everyone has there opinion, but heres another truth

    Opinions are like assholes, everyones got one :roll:

    I also happen to enjoy games the regular gaming community deems to be utter shit so again ill reserve final judgement untill i play the game on the hardest difficulty out the gate

    I'm just getting this game, so I can say I own a piece of history. I am probably never gonna play it.

    +1 I agree have only played pass the casino and it feels like the modern mainstream fps. My buddy beat it in 5 hours and said it felt like halo with duke nukem. It is fun don't get me wrong but I was expecting a duke 3d style gameplay.

    IMO it doesn't really feel like a Duke Nukem game. It's missing the attitude and aggressive gameplay. One more thing.. THE 2 WEAPON LIMIT IS SO STUPID!! He can bench 600 pounds but only carry two weapons? WTF:wtf:

    Thats surprising, I really havent heard anyone say that. 3D Realms dropped the ball(s) on this so many times. The games been remade so many times, all I can figure is, they said "screw it, we got over a decade invested into this game, lets give it to a good dev who can actually get it out the doors". If the sales are good, hopefully we can get a real polished Duke from Gear Box, that would be awesome.

    WHAT! You just pre-ordered it now.

    Of course you wanna play it. It's a good game and I don't blame you. Look, how much money you gonna save by waiting? Not much, I tell you.

    It's always expensive off Steam, unless they have one of those cheap offers and they take many months to come around. Amazon and other online retailers sell this fairly cheap, so I recommend getting it from there and getting it out of your system. It's a cool game, regardless of what the anally retarded reviewers say about it. :slap:

    You'll love it! I've played over 7 hours now and it's keeping my interest just fine. :D

    I'm afraid that I never played the demo, as I didn't want to spoil the full experience. Crazy has though, so he'll be able to tell you when it unlocks.

    Kinda unfair that its already released since 4 days in Europe... well i guess, there must be at least one game, that gets released earlier here, then in the US!:laugh:
