IMO you are wrong. I actually prefer Forever over 3D. I'm a log time Duke fan. And people saying this game is a broken mess, are just wrong. And I'd be willing to bet the reason most of them hate it is because it's difficult. Unless you've been playing classic shooters the past 12 or so years (like Doom and Duke Nukem 3D) and avoiding the newer modeled Shooters like COD, the game play style is hard as fuck to go back to. It's a game that requires skill. And I truly believe all of the hate comes from a place of ass-clowns being unskilled at it, or they haven't even played it and are judging upon these negative ass reviews, that have no clue what they are talking about.
Stop liking what I hate! Stop it this instant! You know internet, this is really getting boring. It's just the same shit, over and over and over again. It's like that South Park episode.
Bulllshit. This isn't about taste. DNF is a shit game.
You don't seem to understand the concept of opinions very well.
No really, I do. Duke Nukem Forever's measure of quality doesn't relate to who likes it and who doesn't. It looks awfully dated, has exceedingly limited combat and excessive load times on consoles. It's not a good game by any means. It certainly may have some appeal from a nostalgia standpoint or for curiosity's sake, but it really is a shit game, especially in light of its 14 year development cycle and its price. Had it, like the Serious Sam reboots, been sold at a budget price I wouldn't be so harsh on it but as Gearbox decided to sell it as a full priced product it must be compared with equivalently priced products and, as such, it just doesn't compare on any level.
Have you actually played any of it, or are you calling it shit simply because that's the popular opinion in the press? I've played the first few hours of the game, and it's not the clusterfuck of a shit sandwich that some reviews have painted it as. It is not a disaster; Superman on the Nintendo 64 was a disaster. It was a nearly unplayable mess. Duke Nukem Forever far exceeds the low bar set by the likes of such games and, even if it isn't your thing specifically, I can understand how some would enjoy playing it.
I have played it, up to and beyond the point the QL points out (with the Holsom Twins being alien "infested"), that includes three bosses, two driving sections, some interactive shit, the Duke Cave and a bunch of so called combat with troops (pig cops, hoverpack grunts and so forth). It is indeed a clusterfuck or rather, more apropriately, a clusterfizzle of epic proportions. I'm not sure what you perceive as good quality (or even mediocre) combat in a FPS, but DNF does not have anything redeeming in terms of combat - the weapons all feel floaty, the combat feels utterly detached, all of the environments feel cramped - even those outside, the FoV is all kinds of wrong (you feel squished up against the camera lens) and the AI isn't just poor, it's plain mindbumblingly boring. The game doesn't even compare with DN3D in any decent way. It even manages to look worse than a game with a 2.5D engine. See, Duke IS my thing. I love DN3D. This game just fails in every way possible to inherit any of the magic which that game had. As a real fan of DN3D (and other Build engine games made by the same team like Shadow Warrior) I cannot see how someone can enjoy playing DNF. The game feels like a chore. A really boring, ugly, annoying chore.
