REALLY!! After that long and you butcher what was and could have been an aweome game? Controls suck, graphics suck, and all the little challenges....its not tomb raider, its duke nukem! you can only use 2 guns? come on. the bosses were easier than the other bad guys. sorry duke. truly sorry. not worth a rent at all. dont bother. you'll be upset. pretend like it never happened.
I am a big fan of the last gen Duke games. I knew going into this that is was not going to be a graphical powerhouse but remained optimistic since the developer had such passion for bringing us back Duke. Well, they failed. the only thing, and I mean ONLY thing good about the game is the voice acting. John St.John does a great job of delivering one-liners and is funny as always. The rest...egads..
Level design is a joke. The death animations are a joke. The textures are a joke. The AI is a joke. The gun play is a joke. I just realized how far games have come since the last Duke was out on PC. Maybe I am just spoiled by this generation's offerings but I could not get past one hour of Duke. It is sooooooo bad that I simply cannot force myself to play anymore. Shame, too. I loved the old ones. It is simply so boring and uninspired that it feels like a chore to progress.
