Summary: for the price, the coolest thing was the little knick knacks. Other than that, EPIC FAIL. This game has some fun parts, but this is not a Duke Nukem game. I would recommend checking out Angry Joe's, or ProJared's review of this game on youtube. It is just bad. Story is non-existent.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: I played the original Dukes, read the previews, the hype, and all the behind the scenes "who did who wrong" backstory of 15 years Forever being labeled as vaporware. My feeling going in was, "I will give this a chance to prove everyone wrong".
