Duke Nukem Train Wreck Trashes Take-Two... DNF killed Duke for good? - Page 3

post #21 of 31
Thread Starter 
I think the creators of this crappy game have come on my topic. They're saying I'm trolling when I and almost any sane person says the game is crap. And this game is nothing like Duke 3d, Duke 3d was a good game DNF is a steaming pile of turd that should have never came out. No wonder why you can pick up poop in this game it completely describes the level design in this terrible game.

I have to agree that DNF is a bit poo.

The article is stupid. DNF may have sucked as a game, but it still sold well, and judging from the game the production values were low, so they still turned a hefty profit.

It didn't sell as well as expected and the production values were high.

Why are the reviews SO bad? I really like the game!! Such bs. It's like a rival company paid off all the review sites to seriously trash DNF. Yes, it has some aspects which aren't the greatest. But nothing to warrant such god awful reviews IMO. At worst, I'd say it's rating should have been in the mid 60s to low 70s, although if it were me I'd do higher. People are too serious about their games. DNF isn't about using tactics and team coordination that was thought out well in advance on team speak. It's not supposed to be that kind of game, and the bad reviews seem to be written as though they had already made up their mind about what DNF was supposed to be even before they did the review or even played it.

And although the PR arm caught crap for the rage comment about the bad reviews, I do believe the part they said about how the reviews simply contained venomous words rather than being totally objective was very true.

Game was awesome it kept with the feel original game. Kids crying about graphics and game play obviously never played the original.

I'm interested in a little comparison to all you who hate/love DNF.

Which is better: Quake 4, DNF?

Because it's a bad game. The levels are horribly linear, the gunplay is bad, the overall gameplay is lousy at best. I mean you run forward, kill a bunch of enemies, run forward, kill a bunch of enemies, run forward, kill a bunch of enemies, run forward, kill a bunch of enemies. Not that an FPS isn't about, ahem, running forward and killing enemies, but DNF takes that notion way, waaaaaaaay too literally. It's two thousand and bloody eleven and you're trying to make play a poor man's Half-Life clone? No way. It might've been an above average game in 2002 or so, but definitely not now. The gameplay is simply embarrassing.

It's not supposed to be that kind of game
Nobody cares what this game was supposed to be anymore. It doesn't just fail as Duke Nukem Forever, it fails as a generic modern shooter.

You obviously never played the original, because the gameplay has NOTHING to do with Duke Nukem 3D. Nothing. And I've just replayed all the good ol' four episodes yet again a week ago or so. The reason Duke Nukem 3D was so good is because it had (actually, has, not had) a great level design and it offers a certain level of creativity when it comes to killing enemies and exploring the levels, this game was like Doom on steroids back in the day. DNF, on the other hand, had atrocious level design and offered zero creativity when it came to shooting the bad guys.

Every person complaining about graphics must not have been around back then.
Yeah... except that Duke3D was the best looking FPS to date when it came out in January 1996.

You call throwing poo, or basketballs in the face of aliens "zero creativity"? What the hell have you been playing?
