If you keep telling the truth, we are going to ban you from reviewing our terrible games and pay someone to do it right.
Despite everyone joining in on the hate band wagon I really enjoy the game, its given me a lot of laughs. Me and a few friends played the Multiplayer and was also having a good time, though I will admit it needs a little work with the networking aspect, but other than that its a great game

Played the game.
Did not enjoy it one bit. Its simply too stale. The graphics are just terrible.
The only thing i found sometimes funny is dukes corny lines.
Also, the whole babe crap is overdone, maybe would be funny in 1998 when Clinton was president and the world was ass backwards, but not in 2011.

I'm getting pretty tired of everyone complaining about the game. If it came out 10 years ago, everyone would be enjoying it for what it is; A Duke Nukem game which is all about crude humor.

Please don't tell me you guys would enjoy the first Duke Nukem if you were to suddenly pick it up and play, because you gotta be kidding if your saying this one is worse then the first.

Everyone expects this game to be a 2011 game, but it's really a game that was suppose to be released in 2001.

I played the first game when I was a kid, and enjoyed it because it was pretty much the standard for an FPS. Now we have a revival which is VERY SIMILAR to the first (obviously with better graphics) but every butthurt teenager is expecting an FPS to end all FPS.

Please, let the game be enjoyed for what it is worth.

By definition, mediocre is still a pass (50%), but it's not really worth many people's time.
lolwut? You don't expect to get a 50 on a test, run home to your mom and say, "Look mom! Ive gotz an average score!"

The game has overall negative reviews. It isn't "middle" ground.

People who hate and think DNF took too long and is a completely crap game = All review sites who played this game on a console with easy mode + their viewers.

People who like DNF and think it's a boss game but shouldn't have taken 12 years = PC gamers who actually own the game and have played through on hard.

Trust me, the game isn't easy and the regen system doesn't really help. Systems are able to handle a lot more than they did in the 90s so you're getting a healthy dose of enemies, regardless of what review sites say, this game on hard is not a walk in the park. The AI is challenging and if you had to find a med pack every 10-15 minutes along the way you'd be screwed.

The PC/PS3 version is rated higher though so it's not the core game, but the crap port the 360 version got. Even still, from all of the playthrough videos I have seen the game is pretty mediocre.

I would say 45-60 is middle road. Completely negative for me is 30's.

I have not played it but I never buy games when they first come out because RARELY are they worth the $50-$60. I wait until theyare $20, like I will do with this one.

The game has overall negative reviews. It isn't "middle" ground.

Don't mix terms. Average is one thing, a pass is another thing. I never said anything about average. Average is a lot more subjective and relative to other games than a pass, which is an objective thing.

As to the game having overall negative reviews, it's not true either. First you have to distinguish between platforms. The PC version is doing better with 56, the PS3 also with 56 and the Xbox with 48 currently. Actually, this last score changed since the Ars writer wrote the article in the thread; it was at 49.

So, yes, it's a pass (almost a pass in the Xbox 360's case), and it's mediocre, and therefore in the middle ground of the scale, but it's not bad. Bad, I repeat, would be if it got 10% or 20 or even 30%. Perhaps I didn't make it clear that by middle ground I meant this distinction between what is bad and what is mediocre, but still a pass. I'm not reinventing the wheel, by the way, this is the way reputed magazines have been reviewing games for decades.

You can say what you want, but Metacritic gives it overall a negative.
