Destructoid: Duke Nukem Forever Review

They say you should never meet your heroes, as you'll only ever be disappointed. I think the same thing can be said for videogames that have accrued over a decade of expectations and hype. If you never play it, at least in your mind it will always be everything you ever wanted.

If you play Duke Nukem Forever, you'll be slapped in the face by reality. The reality of Duke Nukem as a character, as an IP, and as a highly anticipated videogame is in stark contrast to the idea of a charming, cool, and hilarious series that years of delusion and marketing have concocted.

The reality of Duke Nukem Forever is that it's absolute garbage that should have stayed confined to the bowels of Development Hell.

Destructoid has lost all credibility in my opinion. Not that the game doesn't deserve a 2, (I haven't played it, I wouldn't know). But this coupled with SOCOM's 3... It's just a little over the top I think. SOCOM did suck, but a 3 is a little low. It's just ridiculous that they've decided to trade accurate and credible reviewing/writing for hits. Destructoid should get real with themselves and their readers.

Philoctetes2293d ago

In fairness, it's not just Destructoid. If their review was an Edge-like outlier, then sure I could understand criticizing them for being too harsh, fishing for hits, etc. but this game is getting panned almost across the entire spectrum.

Jim Sterling is Freelance and I think his low scoring is good because it lets a developer know theyve fucked up.

Controversy2293d ago

Destructoid is not my fav, but I prefer them to Edge. A 3 for Socom 3 is a bit ridiculous.

As for Duke Nukem...the quality of the game is disappointing, but...how many really did believe it would be different? Just my two cents.

Right...2? really? Tits in the game at least mean its a 5, right? lol.

ZBlacktt2293d ago

Yeah something. If I thought a game was a 2. I wouldn't even write a review.

death2smoochie2293d ago

Bloody hell...this game is getting massacred LOL

Godmars2902293d ago

Why are reviews going all the way from 2 to 8?

I know opinions are opinions, but that one bit where you're throwing poop can't have effected scores that much.

I guess this is one of those games the you will either love or hate. I hope to find out this weekend.

Biggest2293d ago

There have been far fewer scores of 8 than of 2, which is saying something. The game just isn't good. It's not as if people can't see it for themselves. Look at all of the gameplay videos. This game would have been GREAT in 2004 or earlier.
