You're complaining about sixty dollars! It's much fairer over here in Australia! We get to only pay one hundred and ten dollars for a new title! You clearly derserve the right to complain!

[url=#user_comment_66113]@Scout[/url]: Yes, and they just threw that Borealis easter egg in Portal 2 just for shits and giggles; they're not really going to release the game they've been working on for years that would make them hundreds of millions of dollars. They just decided to scrap the most beloved video game series ever.

@Dead Herald: In europe, no one is bitter about not being american. Just don't be so haughty. [url=#user_comment_66282] @Williamgood[/url]: Where the hell you pay 100 dollar for a game? Usually i pay 40-45€ for a game in the store. On amazon often cheaper.

Dreamstate what people expected was an option to play the old duke, no option to play the old duke was given.
people rage.
The game was riding on nostalgia but turn into a Duke version of Duty Calls and that game was already made twice.

All my brothers and friends who played D3d and have waited with me for D4 all agree, good game marred by the health and 2-weapon system.
Two weapons just adds an ammo scarcity no one wanted (99-shot RPG now a 5-shot PoS?), and ego is crap. Need a patch or mod to fix those and it's gold.

"I still plan to play it someday, but I waited 12 years, I can hold for a couple more."

I will, too - but after the 'Finally patched the bugs paying Gamma Testers found' - er, I mean 'G.o.t.Y. Edition' comes out.

I wouldn't pay release price on even a AAA title - didn't for Fallout 3, etc...

Final word? DNF is great. Either play it and have fun, or blow it out your ass.
Dreamstate
about 13 years ago
Also having played DNF from start to finish I'd say it's not something I'd pay full price for, god no, given it has no replay value except possibly MP, and is pretty dumb, but it's by no means bad whatsoever, and the graphics actually ARE really good, considering it's using Unreal 2.5 engine.
Dreamstate
about 13 years ago
Funny thing is, pretty much every review of DNF was grossly unfair. People expected far too much of it. It's Duke Nukem. What the hell did you expect from it? I went into it expecting a fun, irreverent, stupid FPS romp with really well done gameplay, and I got more than what I asked for.

[url=#user_comment_66152]@Bravetriforcer[/url]: THIS. I couldn't believe the game would actually be released if it was as bad as reviews made it seem. And it's not. It's not a great game by far, but it's still GOOD. Of course, this would be the one game that everyone would judge on an "all or nothing" scale.

Duke also needs more enemies to kick ass.Even on hard the game is quite easy, not sure about console version,but for a PC gamer its a disappointment.

p.s. no music(sometimes),2 weapon limit and duke using buttstock to melee monsters rather than to kick them in the face with a boot is NOT AWESOME

[url=#user_comment_66196]@Sanguis[/url] : Same here , in Argentina , but only for consoles. In PC , games are not too expensive , close to 30-40$ , but on consoles , they're close to a 100. And it makes having a non-chipped console really just for rich people , or people that buy 1 every 2-3 months.

For me the problem with DNF was they shoehorned modern mechanics in it but stopped half way. So the 2 weapon limit made using all the fun weapons impractical (since they only worked for a few shots). Plus the regenerating health just feels wrong.
TheBaron87
about 13 years ago
The problem with DNF isn't the style, it's the gameplay. Nobody cared that the graphics were bad. Nobody cared that Duke was ripped straight from the 90s (in fact that's what most wanted), the problem was the game has all the style of a 90s game, but the gameplay of a generic 2009 shooter.
Idaho

DNF has it's fun moments, but even I was disappointed in the result.

I got the impression that Gearbox was only tasked to finish the game 3DRealms has started.

But I believe 3DRealms actually killed it by waiting for, like, twelve years and numerous engine changes. Duke never got to evolve.
Dowm

Biggest complain so far I've heard is that it lacks polish and they glued in a bunch of random stuff that doesn't work.

Lacks new cool weapons, too linear, clunky driving.
Plus the weird regenerating ego shield and 2 weapon limit.
Should have polished that more, but hey! better now than never.

[url=#user_comment_66124]@owie[/url], Yeah, there are rumors (even from Valve themselves) that Ep3 was canned. In favor of the return of longer games (so, Half Life 3 instead of Episode 3).

Lastly, trying to establish a pattern and qualification system based on one previous data point is such a fallacy I can't even go into it.

PS. Bigger character limit, please. It's hard to properly "TrollNOW!!" with only 300 characters.
OldSchoolDuke
about 13 years ago
Still what you *shouldn't* be saying is that it's "not a duke game" because the *single game* (and expansion) you're referencing broke the mold from its own two predecessors in so, so many ways.
OldSchoolDuke
about 13 years ago
only carrying two weapons is pretty lame, with no real reason behind it other than "well that's what everyone else is doing", and that's a pretty shitty reason; and not being able to literally kick ass (read, invoke the powers of my Mighty Boot™, pat. pending]) is a let down on so many levels.
OldSchoolDuke
about 13 years ago
Hell, there weren't even any aliens in the 3-episode first game! I was fighting only the robots of the evil Dr. Proton (I *did* get back in time to watch Oprah, by the way).

I have plenty of problems with the game myself:
OldSchoolDuke
about 13 years ago
There weren't any half or fully naked women in the first two games, just a lot of ass-kicking by yours truly in the fashion of the 80's action starts, cheesy lines and all (though few and far between; God love old games where the main character didn't prattle on for half an hour).
OldSchoolDuke
about 13 years ago
I like how everyone talks about the my game*s* being so great, and is really only talking about 3D.

I had two other games you know, you people who like to go on about how this is 'isn't a Duke Game'. You've probably never even seen them, much less played them.

if you don't think a game is worth the asking price, pirate it and send a check to the developer for however much you think it is worth. That's what I do. Except for with Portal 2. Wasn't worth 60 USD, but god damn, that dialog.

This is the bullshit that I hate with DNF. Some of you fucking begged for it he game to come out, no matter how good. It came out. How is it? So far for me, pretty damn good. Not as great as it could have been, but pretty fun. But no, you shit on it because it isn't exactly as you dreamt of it.

Man, all this ragging on DNF makes me sad. It's good but people would much rather keep their high expectations on a game that I honestly gave up on. People really should have adjusted their expectations and knew it wouldn't be what they want.
AJ
about 13 years ago
Should've pre-ordered. It was slightly cheaper if you bought it before the release. But I agree that $60 for the PS3 and 360 versions is a bit much. For me, I'd be willing to pay $50 for the game if I had either of those systems. But I own a PC, which is cheaper. But I bought the BoS edition...
