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.
well heres the thing. what they tried to do with the game is pretty cool. they brought back dukes classic style and attitude. he gets his woman and kicks booty. but they took so long to make it i believe they expected it to come out on ps2 but it took longer than expected so they had to upgrade graphics to ps3 and didnt get to change much of the game so it came out half way decent. but if you are a big fan of duke nukem then play it. if not then dont. its a simple as that
