Summary: I feel like I've spent half my life watching this game's load screen. Some parts of this game are difficult. There's a lot of trial and error. Dying. Watching the interminable load screen. I've read that the PC game was patched to drastically reduce the loading time. If only they had done the same for Xbox 360. (Watch another load screen.) The underwater bits were clunky. Even though Duke is swimming through water, he is standing upright the entire time.
Summary: Duke Nukem was like an old high school friend that back in the day you thought was funny and cool but after meeting him many years later, you think to yourself why was I ever friends with him. Back in the 90s Duke NuKem was funny and different when you compare to what was out at the time. If this game came out three years after the original Duke Nukem 3D then it may have been a big hit, but sadly this old horse needed to be left out in the pasture.
Summary: For the first time in my life, I am considering selling a game before finishing it. I wanted to love this game, and it really pains me to say this, but this game isn't worth the frustration it causes--and it certainly isn't worth the absurd price tag. Sadly, this review won't contain any information that hasn't already been stated ad nauseam by all the other frustrated players who are probably wishing they hadn't bought the game, either.
Long load times and incredibly frustrating gameplay
26 June 2011
Summary: I hate that this is the first item I have ever chosen to review, but I have such disappointment an frustration with this game that I have to try to save the rest of you who have not already wasted money on this. I was very much looking forward to the game and pre-ordered. The best thing about it is that it arrived on time. Even installed to the Xbox hard drive, the frequent level load times are terrible (over 30 seconds.
Summary: Tellury here, 3D extraordinare, here with another review. This one: Duke Nukem Forever! The best way I can sum up is this is really just a playground, in a game format. Seeings how this game has been screwed by more developers than Duke has babes, I was expecting crap. And its not too far off from that. But if you love Duke, then this will be a blast! What the heck do I mean? I'll explain.
Summary: Let me start off by saying I've played all the Duke Nukem games (including the original 2-D side scrollers) and loved them. I was really looking forward to see the latest incarnation. I was disappointed to see all the negative reviews and thought it couldn't possibly be as bad as they say. I rented the game from Redbox to check it out before shelling out the full price. I am saddened to say the game really is bad.
