Professional reviews have been quite harsh on Duke Nukem Forever, but what go regular gamers think of the title? Mark Serrels of Kotaku asked the community just that. Here are the responses.
We think is dated
i think it's extremely fun and brings me back to the glory days of FPS gaming. This is the reason i havn't bothered listening to reviews in years. I've enjoyed every minute of Duke so far and i'm looking forward to finishing it. However, the loadtimes alone have made me stop playing and take a break. I've never had worse load times in a game before, and of course the graphics look dated. The game is still using assets from 2007. Still love it, still enjoying it and i don't really care what anyone else says. (=
I agree. I think it's fun but it's not a $60 title by today's standards; then again, how many games are? I think Pitchford and Gearbox set the expectations too high. The game was never going to measure up to the hype he was building but it's a good, solid FPS jaunt, it's fun and that's what Duke Nukem games are. For $20 on PSN/XBL, this game would have been considered a steal but for $60 it's an unfair return to a great franchise.
The load times when you die are worse than Too Human!
"Still love it, still enjoying it and i don't really care what anyone else says. (= " WELL SAID MY FRIEND!!! thats a very smart quote. i pre order the balls of still edition for pc. i saw that IGN.COM review i was really dissapointed, and actually i want to cancel my pre order, but after read your speech, ill give it a chance. i reamember when ign review CASTLEVANIA LORDS OF SHADOWS i was sad to hear that the game according to that daemon hatfield or watever the name is, the game sucks because its not a true castlevania or something. i am a fan of castlevania since i was a kid!!! and i can tell after playing it, is pretty awesome game, i was tired of the same stuff from older castlevania titles. anyways i hope you see my point.

I could've waited more.
Off Topic: Nice avatar. On Topic: I will play this game, but I'm going to wait for it to become a bit cheaper before I buy it.
Too little,too late.
Looks like its a mixed reception from gamers too. I think the Critics were spot on with this game for once.
Duke players are a special kind of gamers?
The Duke the man lol the game not that bad fun for us auldyins anyway lol bring on the Duke
I'm enjoying the humour, but hating the controls and outdated graphics/gameplay.
Sorry never been a fan of Duke Nukem never have, never will. I just think it looks and plays terrible, it looks outdated and funnily enough rushed 13 years of waiting aswell. I think that this game was unnecessary, even if it was just for the fans why bring out a game that is just unfinished by Gearbox standards and trys to hard to be funny. Know I'm gonna get some disagrees but thats how I feel.
too expensive for its dated gameplay
I planned to get the game anyway so no amount of negative press or opinions will stop me.
I LOVED Duke Nukem 3D, but after 14 years, I lost interest. DKF is average at best, but the series itself is iconic.
