I can't understand why you write that you are dissapointed in the game.
Of course this game was going to suck.. the hype was not that great really.
The game was frozen untill about 2009 when gearbox got the rights to produce it. Its a 12 year wait but a 2 year production.
I'd personally say that they succeded with the game. It is a worthy duke nukem 3d successor and my only wish is that I was 14 years old again, so that I could enjoy the forbitten XXX content like I did with duke nukem 3d.
As you may of noticed i make long posts if you don’t want to read it fine but don’t complain about the length I take people’s views in to consideration in regards to my first post yeh i do belive the waiting 12 years did build my expectations high on this game but never the less even with out them expectation i still think the game is lacking in regards to quality you expect from a duke game.
I think there are a few fatal flaws i don’t feel the graphics are a issue there fine but ive never been 1 to scream for good graphics some of my favourite games are games from over 10 years ago like wolfenstin and return to castle wolfenstein and the story line doesn’t bother me i play it to shoot aliens not for a story line. But reason where i feel that it has been a let down there is no jetpack something that has been in them all its like removing the ability to use guns and weapons in GTA and just being able to steal cars quote from wiki “Duke is best known for his trademark jet pack” to remove it was a foolish choice imo even WIKI has it listed as the thing duke is best known for.
I played it on the pc and i feel that it was actually a console clone with keyboard functions added i replayed duke nukem 3d the other night and noticed there was also scuba diving gear init unless i missed it in duke nukem forever they removed that aswell. Oo and secret rooms in all the duke games there been loads ok duke forever does have a few not so much secret just if u go the way ur not meant to u might find a pipe bomb. i replayed duke 3d last night first 3 levels between them had over 17 secret rooms.
Back to 12 year thing the trailers ive seen over the 12 years at usally 3-4 year intervals showed so much i belive i linked a few of them in first post and majority of that was also removed like the ability to drive a motor bike , boat , space ship etc.
But also referring to my first post i probs will dig it out again and play it at a later date since come on its still duke nukem but i am a bit eww how short it was as well 4 and bit hours from start to end for £45 i mean yeh developers wanted it to be fun.
the 1396 “however duke was and always is a simple by the by game that takes all of lifes problems and takes it way to far poking fun at itself in the process. duke was never ment to be taken seriously. i payed to get a nice light game i did not have to think on and get some lols along the way and duke has more than delivered on that. multiplayer is alot more intese than i thought but i works for it just do no expect any serious multiplayer teams.“
would be nice tho for £45 if the lol and relaxation lasted a bit longer than 1 night stand i don’t consider my self a tight ass in any way but i literally played for about hour and half first day 2 hours second day come bk to it on 3rd day played for 40 mins and i was on final battle and was like WTF wernt exactly like i was rushing it either i broke every crate along the way killed every thing got quite a few ego boosts etc

I support Drach all the way. Every half-intelligent gamer over 25 knew that this was going to suck. What kind of story or intelligent gameplay can you pull out your butt with a template like DN3D? And you could already see from all the trailers and the demo that graphics were going to suck too. Quit complaining...
thats thing im not complaing about the graphics at all

i agree with you on the jet pack and the scuba gear, and secret rooms seem to be exclusive to multiplayer, maybe the devs figured the singleplayer had enough challenges finding and completing all the requirements for ego boosts
