Joystiq basically said its a terrible game. Ive yet to play bulletstorm but they say its better. I mean i want to try it but it sounds kinda crap. I think i might try and if its crap its crap i can just stop playing.

"NPCs even lack shadows." :shadedshu
The console reviews so far have been a lot lower than the PC reviews. But we'll see when more reviews come out.

which is from one reviewer.

I never take one review as gospel as for every reviewer that hates a game another loves it, its the whole point of games, i love how he says the game is for 12 year olds but completely side steps the giant 3 titted monster and all the strippers lolz. review seems to be kind of fail to me.
Thats exactly why I like metacritic, some review high, some review low, so an average is best.

Duke Nuken isn't any different than a "B" movie.

Sometimes it's the stupidity and over-the-top crap that's the point. Not everyone can appreciate that.
Duke is basically a playable Ash. If you don't love Evil Dead / Army of Darkness, then don't play. B movie is the perfect way to say it.

It's been released in the UK. So the UK gets it before the US. Weird, but true.

Everywhere, except the US/Canada, already have access to the game, whether it be by console versions, or through STEAM. It's even released in South America...


Bites my balls a bit, but oh well. Gonna play Dirt3 in Eyefinity instead.

Australia sells it? I thought anything that is violent even in the slightest is prohibited there? And DNF uses up almost every PEGI pictograph.

I tried googling a few reviews and they all pan it.

No, it's not in the same league as Half-Life 2 or Unreal Tournament, but it's still fun. I love all the super ego and OTT un-PC humour; it's about time we saw a product that dares to push this boundary. So yeah, it's another alien invasion story and you gotta blast all the baddies like every other shooter, but the Duke angle works.

Also, guess what? It's not even all that violent. I've seen more violence and gore in many other games. Doom, which came out way back in 2004, was much more gory than this. Duke Nukem should be a 15 cert, no more.

Come on critics, give it a break. :rolleyes:


EDIT: I just found this pre-release review from 5 years ago!



Looks a bit different doesn't he? More badass now, I reckon.

It's going to be hard to give a final score to this; we really don't know how close to being finished the game is. I can talk about what I've played, and how much it shows us about how the game IS going to be when finished and polished up.

Overall I had a great time. The game is graphic, violent, and mercilessly unimpressed by the current trend towards cutting back on sex in games. It pushes everything in terms of content, from language to nudity. I'm sure we'll hear from every politician after this game, and of course this is worth about ten more months in the limelight for our ol' buddy Jack Thompson. The game doesn't pretend to be anything it isn't. It's a fast-paced game that caters to everyone's worst impulses. While I wish the online play was a little bit more robust I'm sure this is something that can be fixed with later mods and maybe even expansions.

Duke Nukem i have played until after the RC Car section so im not that far into it but i can tell you right now the ai is bad. Half the time enemies dont focus on you when your near, which is because of another problem the game has it doesn't try to cover up being highly scripted. I punched out a grill on an air vent and the NPC was right in front of the grill so i expected it to turn and shoot me in the vent but it didn't do anything until i left the vent, which would be because it was scripted like that. The level design so far isnt anything exciting either. The character models all look like they where made in The Sims 3 but in general the graphics are like an early xbox 360 title, think condemned not horrible to look at though.

Batman Arkham Asylum never made itself look linear because it had great level design, even though it was largely a linear game sending you to certain places. Duke feels like its stuck in the late 90s or early 2000s design wise, its very linear.

Never once did i think Duke was badass in this game. The EGO shield makes him feel less badass as your having to hide till it charges up again. I thought that the jokes from the NPCs are cringe worthy like one of the girls said something about putting Duke in her pocket like a little pet or something and the other made a joke about a "HOT POCKET" it even had this pause after she said it like the game was trying to say GET IT? GET IT? Toilet humour, its like how some people might enjoy fart jokes.

Duke Nukem Forever is not terrible i haven't seen any major bugs in the game so far but its not that well designed either, IMO im finding it kinda boring compared to some other modern shooters.

EDIT: Another joke was the "FAGS" joke where a cigarette packet had a guy in a leather police uniform on the front and it said FAGS, fags have dual meaning in the UK meaning cigarettes and poofters.

I knew this would be a big let-down. I've been watching posts for years now about this game and from the start I said it will never live up to the hype...and I'm happy to say I'm right.

What hype? The most hype about this game was if it would even come out. I haven't ever seen anyone saying DNF would be game of the year, or even close, everyones know this type of game would never make it. It's rude and it's crude, and you can't handle it. Heck I made this thread and I was just hoping to see this game get a 75/100 rating, this games got a cheesy storyline, cheesy 1 liners, and a cheesy hero, Dukes obviously not for you, so why even visit the thread.

Who's Duke?

If you're wondering where Duke's voice comes from, the voice acting is done by Jon St. John.

Jon's done loads of video games, including various Half-Lifes and America's Army.

Look here: www.imdb.com/name/nm0820652

What hype? The most hype about this game was if it would even come out. I haven't ever seen anyone saying DNF would be game of the year, or even close, everyones know this type of game would never make it. It's rude and it's crude, and you can't handle it. Heck I made this thread and I was just hoping to see this game get a 75/100 rating, this games got a cheesy storyline, cheesy 1 liners, and a cheesy hero, Dukes obviously not for you, so why even visit the thread.
Yeah I think a lot of people are misguided about Duke. These same people think Mr. Bean is a comical genius.

DNF is a low brow, low budget, trip to the 90's/80's with a stereotypical American badass. No one said it was going to be ground breaking. No one said anything but "OMG its gone gold!". Honestly I think most of these reviews are........

(A) Console noobs who never played the original.

(B) To young to remember when a Duke Nukem style hero was a mans, man. Not like these ipad sporting hippie queers of today.

Bottom line is DNF will ether be LOVED or HATED. So play the demo. Don't like the demo then don't buy it.

Yeah, well said, MM. :)

I think the bloody critics have to pan products to justify their existence. Sure, things like graphics, AI, 90s throwback and all that are true, but as you say, they're missing the whole fucking point.

I've played lots of quality modern games, so know what to expect. This is pure cheesiness and uncensored un-PC fun - and I love it! That's it's prime ingredient and it does it very well, therefore the game is a success in my book. I've played over 4 hours of it now, so know whether it works for me or not. Oh and I never played the original back in the 90s, either.

The real things to criticize are the 'program mechanics' issues I pointed out in this thread and the other one, not the stuff the critics are criticizing it for. Shit, I can hardly spell 'criticizing' and had to think carefully. :rolleyes: Get a life reviewers.
