"Duke Nukem Forever is releasing tomorrow and with our time with the king's return, we have to say we are deeply impressed. From the stellar graphics to the fantastic characters and story arch, there's nothing you can hate about the Duke's arrival."
"One minute you are running down a hall, the next you are shooting. Sometimes you even run down a hall while shooting, which really adds to the depth and experience. This new "run and gun" genre that Duke Nukem Forever is creating will without a doubt be replicated by future games from other franchises." Nailed it! XD
I don't know if I am to take the review seriously or if it's sarcastic in nature. I like to think the latter.
That whooshing you hear is the sound of the article flying over your head.
No, I think it's the sound of DevilishSix's sarcastic comment flying over your head and the heads of the eight people who disagreed with him.
Being confused about a guy being sarcastic about a guy being sarcastic? That could never happen.
I bet John Marston thought, man I gotta do something to make this article fly on N4G, oh yea let's compare it to Killzone
Uhhh... guys... It looks like there's a lot of confusion about DevilishSix's comment, "I like to think the latter." There are two things prior to that sentence, the former, "take the review seriously" and the latter, "if it's sarcastic in nature". By stating that he is thinking the latter, he means that he is certain that the review was done in a sarcastic light. In other words, he understands that the review was meant to be a joke. Or... you guys are simply disagreeing with him because it's just down right fun, which makes me confused.
WTF killzone got to do with this ?? looking for hits ?
No need to mention KZ3 here... Duke may or may not live on its own successfull past. Ive been playing the game and I have to say the Great graphics it didnt have, but the gameplay is cool and hilarious. This game plays really well for me and if you take it too serious the game is a solid 6, but if you know the Duke and know his over the top attitude... the game is easily a 9. Get it as you want. The game is fun enough 4 me and a great way to put more "serious" shotters to rest a little. My two cents.
I don't whats more hilarious this review or people taking this review serious. It was feakin' hilarious.
" luis said... Is this a fucking joke?! What the hell better graphics than LA Noire & you're comparing THIS SHIT to killzone 3 and god of war 3?! Give me a fucking break! June 13, 2011 9:18 PM "
Haha, This review might be a troll review, but it's a damn good laugh and frankly this is the way the review should be written for this game, with comedy and hilarity, just like the game :D Honestly, I don't think people see the game for the Nostalgia it brings back, and MP is actually really fun if people try to play it, I'm enjoying it so far, not to mention you can customize and create your own servers, so that just adds to my enjoyment if I want a good fist fight :D People really need to stop being so serious when it comes to reviewing the game based on everything it could have been, sure it took 12 years, sure it was a long wait, but frankly, I'm loving each and every second of it! And would you look at that, two people below me have already contributed to that list of people who just can't take a game for the fun it is..
Reviewers have been reviewing it based on what it is...and what it is is shit. If anything, they are going too easy on the game simply because it has duke in it.
the graphics are certainly better on Duke Nukem Forever (pc) vs. killzone 3, which was muddy, grainy, distorted and covered in jaggies and obviously using TONS of sub-hd buffers! but game-wise killzone 3 destroys and mutilates duke nukem duke nukem forever is digital-diarhea.
I honestly can't tell if you're serious but if you are, may god have mercy on your soul.
Sir, you forgot this:
Your comments consistently do not live up to your awesome avatar. Hilarious review btw lmao
I cannot believe someone said something so fucking retardedly dumb,.. Respect (I think new Duke is actually pretty fun:), would not pay full price for it though,.. will wait for it to get cheaper,..but there are a lot of chuckle moments and funny world interactions,.. maybe it is just nostalgia,.. but I truly thing modern shooters could learn a lot from oldschool shooter gameplay and level design)
Duke Nukem Forever may have been in development for over 10 years, but don't be fooled--this does NOT look like a 10 year old game." i lold. XD
Leave it to yamzilla to once again be a pc elitist and troll every console article to hit N4G. I agree with you on KZ3 being a better game, but why all of a sudden you start bashing it. It's a great game and has nice graphics. PC elitist should look past graphics for a change.
I've never seen someone rag on MAG for the visuals. /s
haha I just finished the game and had a good time. I think it's overpriced, especially if you bought the console version. How often do we get such a light hearted fps?
That person that left a comment did not have his sarcasm meter on... Funny review lol
It seems like it was rushed. Gameplay and graphics doesn't feel and look like they've been in development for 10 years.
Can't quite tell if this is legit or overly sarcastic. Either way it's funny as fuck.
hahahah first 10 whoever reviewed that shit is a retard. duke is bad graphics bad gameplay bad story=boobs what a shitty game
I'm guessing you didn't actually read the review, then? Or the article summary for that matter? It's obviously a troll review.
You do realise the review was a joke, right? Second, Anybody dogging Duke Nukem Forever has never played Duke3d. It should not ever be compared to any of the games of today. it is not meant to compete with them. It is simply a homage to Duke 3d. Reviews arent even neccessary period. I wish the game released on PC only, console only gamers cannot grasp their heads around DNF.
The review is a joke. Look at the name of the person who submitted it. kinda says it all.
lol at all the people who just read the title and score then raged. Goes to show how many people don't give a damn about the review itself, just the number tied to it. This was good, got me to laugh. Some people just need to learn how to speak sarcasm.
4/10. Would not read again.
Fuck yes, this game is gonna give me a run for my money. Even more so my life will be complete after i beat it, then i can enter hibernation until the king of all vidya rises again. Finally a legit review.
I won't believe any of the reviews (completely) until I play the game myself. Its a definite rental- there has to be a measure of truth when the reviews are universally bad. However, I will still play it.
This review certainly does it better than sarcasticgamer.com -End statement
Who approves this crap? The whole site is a joke, probably to poke fun at how much crap gets approved on this site.
Need more joke reviews just like this!
Nice to see a decent review for a change.
Duke Nukem Forever makes grown men cry like babies. They should left him alone like Britney Spears.
I think someones' 'avin' a larf!
I know the review is made for a laugh. But honestly, I loved the old Duke. This game is bad, really bad. It's like it's stuck in the past. But the review is funny as shit.
