...at least that's what Xentax.com says:
 
http://www.xentax.com/?p=303
 
And as you can see Jeff isn't the only one he thinks is "crap". 
 
All of this over Duke Nukem Forever reviews.
 
This guy must really like Duke.

What site is that even? Never heard of it. Also Duke Nukem is the only thing thats crap. Jeff isnt the only one who gave it low review. Eurogamer supposedly have been black listed because of its review.  
Going by numbers it is the same score MANY  gave the game..  
 
 
P.S any "Blog" that does not have open comments is one I fully ignore. Someone can not take his work being crititzed.

What is xentax.com? And does it really matter that some guy somewhere doesn't like Jeff's reviews?

Reviewers are just dudes with opinions, you know? I don't think Jeff has bad writing and explanatory skills, quite the contrary, but often his opinion differs from mine, thus, making me enjoy games he really doesn't.

Its funny. Assuming that the game deserves 75% as a base. I would go with 50%.

@LiquidS: I'd like to think this guy wouldn't be stupid enough to throw his own website under the bus like that, but maybe this is a new click tactic!

Either way, regardless of whether the OP did write that, or if the OP was so bothered by this no-name site calling out Jeff that he had to bring it to our attention, let me be the first to say: u mad, bro?

Would be lying if that thought didn't cross my mind. But yeah, articl is bullshit. Whether or not a review is good or bad depends entirely on what side of the score the author deems the "appropriate" score falls on.

I'm really tired of seeing this article. It's absolutely absurd. Stop giving this guy traffic.

My review will be going up shortly. this is not an objectively good game, whether you like it or not. The scores are warranted.

Eh, just trying to stir up controversy to get his five minutes of internet fame. Threads like this only give the author what they wanted in the first place.

I never understood why people get so up in arms if a reviewer doesn't like a game that they like. Things like this make me shake my head and wonder if the time spent collecting the data could've been spent better elsewhere. Like accepting that people don't all like the same things.

So anything below a 50 isn't appropriate but anything above an 85 is? a review is an opinion and for anyone to take such offense that did not in any way contribute to the making of the game should not be so offended. The game is bad, it's at best a 4 out of 10 in my book and that's just me. All the reviews that i've read have been spot on to how I felt. Maybe people expected more out of it but what they did to the core of Duke (regenerating HP and 2 weapons) was honestly just not acceptable in my mind.

The amount of people defending Duke Nukem is blowing my mind. It blows my mind even more that it's not just people who love it and think it should be critically lauded, but people that have specific score ranges in mind where any opinion that falls outside that range is garbage. It's the internet, so I suppose it comes with the territory.

LOL what a ridiculous premise for a comparison, i love the bit where he writes " Overall we would agree that the game deserves somewhere between 65% and 70% as a score" then he doesnt back this up with a source or any of his own theories. He then goes on to pan other websites for giving crappy reviews to generate hits.

I've never heard of Xentax, and I do not care about them either. They do not concern me in the slightest, because a review is something I use to get some more gameplay and other opinions, rather than base my purchase upon.

It's not my website. I don't even have a website. And I already said how I found the link. I haven't even played Duke Nukem Forever yet. And I don't have a problem with Jeff.

You should stop taking Xentax and call your doctor if you have an erection lasting more than 4 hours.

Oh no, it's on the image the guy stole. That's not calling Jeff anything though. Unless images somehow learned to speak

look you can tell these guys are idiots from the the description of how they choose whose crap. you can't just use the rating a reviewer gave it with out reading what the reviewer has to say about it. alot of the points they bring up about how the game isn't great echo what Jeff said. it was just his opinion that it get two stars (or 40% to 59% by their numbers) and you can understand why that is from reading his review. i'll never understand people who just go by the number ratings, i need to know where the person giving that score is coming from.

is xentax like a male enhancement company or something? Also what a load of bullshit, you can't compare 2 reviewers just based off score you have to look at what games they generally like and are usually favourable towards.
