[GS]DNF Review: 3/10 or "Bad" - Page 2

post #11 of 36
Now that a few reviews have come out and they are knocking the game, whether it be valid or not, every reviewer and his mother is going to jump on the bandwagon of hate for DNF. I highly doubt it's as bad as everyone makes it out to be. Most of the kiddies reviewing it probably weren't around for the first couple and they have been playing COD their entire lives.

The next Duke? Duke Nukem Eternal? They kind of killed the series with the name.

I am just begining to think that few people can really make a good game these days. At least one that makes it to the PC. People are jumping over the Witcher 2 and i think it is good game too...but it game out ten years ago i am not so sure it would have been considered that great. I've really been seeing a decline in the quality of games lately. At least from the larger studios and publishers.

3.5 out of 10 is still a laughable score. I simply can't take them seriously.

I think these abysmal reviews are preposterous. AT WORST, I'd say the game deserves a 6/10. AT WORST.

I have it, and I love it. I didn't get DNF to be all serious and hardcore. I got it to relax and have good, casual fun. And in that department it really delivers. I love the one-liners. I love the classic deathmatch online. So many games these days try to make online play so complicated with everything focused on teamwork. That's fine, but what if you don't want to have to really concentrate on the tactics you are going to use and how you will coordinate with your team? What if you just want to kick back, hear funny one-liners and shoot everything that moves?

That is what I have been looking for in a game for a long time now. BF and CoD fail to deliver in that department, although CoD does get the slight nod from me. Not that I am not saying BF is bad. I am only talking about the times when you want to just play without worrying about any fancy teamwork or tactics.

I really think all the horrible reviews are not deserved.

Another game that I think got very undeserved bad reviews was Dark Sector. Loved that game. The glave was totally badass.

The game is horrible and I am a huge fan of duke3d. Duke nukem 3d is superior in almost every way imo. Better level design, funnier, less linear and there actually was exploration (finding new ammo and guns). In DNF, you just go from ammo box to ammo box. Quick time events, only 2 weapons max and outdated graphics don't help. It's a horrible shooter imo.

I worked in sales/marketing and I've seen if you go the right way at doing your selling pitch you can more or less sell anything to anyone - and I've seen it first hand.

Anyway, not gonna derail thread. Ultimately though, Popular/best selling tells nothing of how quality the game is.
Quality in the case of COD and DNF are quantifiable, though. It's not just some rhetorical device espoused by the reviewers.

COD is a coherent game whether you like it or not... DNF is not.

Ok


Also on a different note, If I was Nvidia I'd get a 590 replace the box and slap on the name "GTX 690". Get Activisions marketing team, and watch the money roll in!

yea the game isnt going to compete with the last few years there have been so many leaps and bounds in gaming when it comes to FPS games. The story, the game style...all changed since Duke 3D...it doesnt help tha tthey didnt really update the game to have better graphics and such for the time with 3D Relms pretty much sitting on it for 10+ years.....personally i bought the game, and have been playing it since and honestly...its Duke to me. It could have been better, def but i take it as a Duke game...same as i take the Doom games. I have every Duke Nukem and Doom game for PC regardless of how good or bad they are. i like the series, and DNF didnt fail to excite me. I am enjoying it, the one liner are amazing and with the out dated graphics engine, it an DEF be better...but no complaints. When they said they were bringing this out i didnt expect it to be incredible....just Duke

No it is not. NES's Super Mario Bros. is the best selling game of all time. smh
