Well the game is crap, on IGN It got 5.5, so much for 12 years.............

i disagree with ign on a number of things, often things they'll docke marks on are of low priority to me, such as multiplayer, while i think a game deserves a better grade, point is ign reveiws so many games that they've created a fairly standard formula for reviewing game, i.e. does a game have this, this, this and this? So you have to take ign reviews with a certain grain of salt, i believe the sayint goes. Secondly, DNF has been in development for some 14 years now and has changed developers at least half a dozen times, with so many people with so many ideas of just how DNF should be, with that many cooks in the oven it's no wonder DNF is something of a cluster f@#$. Thirdly, Duke Nukem is from a simpler age before we got spoiled with things like HD graphics, plot developmen and accurate weapons physics, it's not about holding it to the standards we've come to expect from games today, we should appreciate DNF for what it was, if you can't do that you're not going to enjoy this game, and might as well save your money for the next call of duty or mass effect 3.

"Art for art's sake" as they used to say.

Hey, I agree with you but be nice to Mass Effect 3. The Mass Effect games are great in my opinion.

i found the game to be slightly dated compared to say CoD, but it was definately worth it for the cheesy puns and jokes knocking around in it.

I love the beginning when he keeps wondering why you're having Duke pickup the poo and asking if he is a chimpanzee

I'm actually surprised that IGN had the balls to give this the low rating that it deserved - most publishers nowadays stipulate that big gaming journalists can only review a copy of the game if they agree to not score the game below ~75%, or they face being black-listed for any future pre-release material.

IIRC, the PR group for 2k games attempted to make this very statement and was fired by 2k games in less than 24 hours after such a statement. Journalists are entitled to their opinion and will give a game a score based on what they think. It's not "balls" to give a game a low score because it happens quite a bit. People are just mad because of this was a game famous for escaping it's development hell phase after 14 years.
