Well looks like Duke Nukem Forever blew it

  • I’m glad I forgot to buy Duke Nukem Forever on Tuesday after reading the review from IGN which gave it a jaw dropping 5.5/10. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised by the result after watching this multiplayer trailer from GameTrailers. It looked like a really generic shooter and it just didn’t feel like the good old Duke Nukem. The single player story might be entertaining but I can’t justify paying $69.99 + tax just for single player because I value the multiplayer aspect of a game a lot.

    I’m just sad that after 10 years of waiting and the hype generated throughout, went to waste. I felt like they rushed it out because they knew the fans had been waiting and the developers didn’t want to wait any longer. Instead of rolling out with something similar to StarCraft 2 status, which also came out 10 years after the first game, Duke Nukem Forever blew it.

    Hopefully not forever as the game name suggested. Hopefully there will be another one coming out that’s done properly. One that retains the old humor and game play with next generation game elements. For now I would just bring out the old Duke Nukem 3D in the mean time while we wait yet again for Duke Nukem to return. This one just didn’t do it.

    Damn. I though Duke Nukem was going to be good. I was never really into the Duke Nukem series, but now I know not to start, because then I’d be pretty disappointed.
