I don't think there's anything wrong with not giving review copies to people who aren't fairly reviewing the game.
Amazingly unprofessional. Someone does deserve to be fired. And just the mention of such a policy of holding back review copies, picking and choosing based on previous review scores, sheds light on a practice that IS going on. This is a big shoutout to consumers. DO NOT buy games that fail to supply review copies to gaming press before release.
2K would do well to cut that firm loose.
I haven't palyed the game, but I did watch a video of a playthrough of the entire game, and the reviews are more disgusting than the game is.
THe reviews are acting like 2K was somehow attacking or violating gamers by releasing DNF to the public. As though 2K had promised that Duke Nukem was going to solve all your problems and somehow it doesn't.
DNF is a game. It honestly looks better and more fun than many, many, games I've seen on shelves today. There are things it does that are downright cool. (the view of all of las vegas when you're high up does wonders for the atmosphere)
The reviewers need to get over themselvs, or be forced to get over themselves.
