I really enjoyed it, although I never did finish it. I didn't understand why so many people were trashing it. Sure, the gameplay wasn't revolutionary or anything. But it retained a lot of that Duke charm that I've come to love since the early days of gaming.

I don't know. I'm not against janky games. I'm a big fan of Eastern European rpgs like those from Piranha Bytes and Spiders. I've enjoyed fps like Legendary and those of that vein.

While I didn't hate Forever like many did, the game had a whole lot of faults, and not just its lack of polish.

I too found it enjoyable but then again I was a fan of the original Duke 3D on PC. I think most of the hate was all that time in development hell and it emerged as it did. They tried, they really tried with what they had to work with and it ended up being a decent game but nowhere up to par with all the other offerings at the time. That game, exactly like it is, had it released 3-4 years sooner then it prob would have fared better in terms of critical response.

Duke should have ended at Duke Nukem 3D.

Really fun game with lots of glitches but still very fun, that slapping level was ridiculous
Just a few will understand it , because it was so wrong yet so right XD

Would love to see a remake with lots of physics lol

The game was a good Duke Nukem. The same kind of immature humor, gameplay and plots from average to bad. The blame for perception is not Forever's. People need to reevaluate the perception about the series, which had just one good game among all the releases and a lot of people made the exception rule.

This was the WORST game I have ever played in my life. I bought it day 1 and traded it in day 2. I had it on the 360 and the first level showed promise but as you went further into the game, there was more and more missing and not working. There was 1 boss fight that the draw distance was so bad if I walked too far away from the boss it would disappear but could still shoot at me and hurt me and all I was able to see was the walls to the sides and the skybox ahead of me. SO SO BAD. I finished the game and I had no desire to keep playing it, even tried online but it was lame. DUKE 3D was great, ran good on most PCs, had interesting levels and was in some ways ground breaking. DUKE FOREVER was in so much development hell that at the end they just wanted to release this and be done with it. Gearbox (i think it was gearbox) polished up the first level and a few parts of the next few levels but as you got to the end you can see that they either gave up or expected the player to give up and never make it that far.
