Funny though.
But for some funny reason it seems to show a gun.

Must be photo shopped in.

AFAIK there is ONE gun and DOZENS of melee weapons, the whole point of the game is melee.

Here is a list of the weapons.

The image is convenient, but betrays the point it is making.

got the game for PC so far i think its Fun and so far im liking it. i always go on what i think of a game i never listen to reviews cause that is one mans opinion, i would rather make my own opinion then following blind from someone else.

I have said it once and i will say it again. reviewers and 70%+ of people are trying to compare this game to modern games of today even when we know its not trying to be a modern game

Oh I haven't even played the game yet. I'm just flabbergasted that you would consider a 50% middle of the road.
I'll repeat for the third time, it's magazines that say that 50% is a pass for decades. Mediocre, but pass. I can show you magazines from the early 90's to prove my point if you want.

As to the discussion being about the Xbox 360 version, well, the review was about the Xbox 360 version, but that was in another thread (that I also created), in this case, the news is about a twitter post that didn't say anything specific about platform or specific reviewers; it was a threat in general.

It seems to be the same thing on every developers plate.
Shooters, Shooters everywhere.


Fortunately we have Portal 2 and Dirt 3. And The Witcher 2 (still haven't played, but seems good). And some Indie developers that do some nice things too.

perhaps they should have put a label on the game itself, and a warning on the tv commercials. This game is not meant to be modern, do not judge it based on modern scales.

Come on man.

They said they stick behind every word of it, and even came out and addressed the Twitter comment by sticking behind their story and telling developers that they shouldn't lash out like that.

I didn't get the QQ vibe, and most people agree with their opinion, even if they put it a bit blunt.

You can always read reviews with a grain of salt. Some things are more subjective, others are more objective. Complaining about dull map design and showing why, is more objective in my book and helps you make a decision.

As to the developer telling them to knock it off, it's not like that. The developer told the INDUSTRY in general to knock it off, because, as can be seen from the reviews, Ars is not alone in the criticism. A bit more serious of a threat.

didnt know there would be guns in dead island! thats great news.


Even gamespot gave duke a very low score of 3.5
Gamespot front page: "The bland and ugly Duke Nukem Forever turns a famous gaming icon into an embarrassment."

I havent played it yet, but the reviewers are probably expecting too many new things for a game that's supposed to feel old school.

Well, I looked at the gameplay video on youtube and there is a right way and a wrong way to do old school. What that is, is a mish-mash of incoherent graphics that doesn't look either old-school or new.
