2K games saves a bit of face when it comes to some fans it seems.
2K needs all the good press it can get right now...
The game was lacking i think most of us can agree on that.
Duke? Yeah but it didn't deserve the terrible scores some gave. 0/10? Was the game unplayable? Low scores, maybe. I personally say average.
The game is really bad, but I would still give a 6/10, I had a blast with dn3d back in the day, so I can still enjoy DNF, but the younger crowd will probably give a lower score!
"Yeah but it didn't deserve the terrible scores some gave. 0/10? Was the game unplayable?" Again, that was a terrible Metacritic conversion of an 'F' score, not some malicious score. It sits at a deserving average score of around a 5. One point lower than reviewers almost EVER give a game this gen.
@blitx0x 1up gave an F or 1/5 not a 0/10. i hate how so many people complain about reviewers not using their whole grading scale, keeping all reviews between 5-9.5, but when the full scale is used people bitch. 7 is "good" people. now i still do agree that an F or 1/5 is still low from what i hear of the game. while DNF seems like a bad game, most reviews haven't said anything about the game being broken.
Thats why I trade in this crap of game to get Fear 3 instead next week.
announce the game will retail for 29.99 drop the price announce a patch is coming too assure gamers that most of fixable problems will be fixed and announce borderlands 2 lol(well i am being selfish) do the top 2 things and get some positive media towards the game
It by all means is not a great game. It is however a GREAT Duke game. It has all the classic Duke feel to it. I think some people just want to hate on it as bad as possible.
That's pretty awesome of them, no lie.
Sadly I predicted that DNF would be mediocre :(
Awww...that's so sweet! They probably need every fan they've got. Rather send apology packages to those who brought the game itself. I'm sorry, I'm overreacting. This game just wasn't what it was supposed to be. It could have been a LEGEND, now it's one of those games that will just die away quickly...
People want to compare DNF to current games. If compared to Blood, Quake II, Duke Nukem 3D, and other period titles, this would score really well.
If the game was PC exclusive...
People their money back? Those that feel screwed over? I don't know how the game is since I never bought it or played it. But I'm getting the idea that some folks are unhappy.
No, nor should they. Gamers have a tendency to over-hype things in their minds to where they expect something as great as sex then are upset when they get exactly what they were promised and nothing more. I've never been a fan of the Duke's games but I still think I'd give it a higher score than most critics seem to be since I'd only be expecting an average game. Of course, since I prefer the older style of shooter I may give it higher.
well does activision give money back to gamers unhappy with their games (which seems to be alot)
Ok the game seems bad and the apologies are a excuse to the bad game not that much to copyright infringement.
the game wasn't that bad... it doesnt deserves scores like 3/10s and even 0/10s :S
People wanted some COD in their DUKE... I think that's the problem too! I was a big Duke 3D, BLOOD, and Shadow Warrior fan back in the 90's. Im digging the game cause it's a straight up throwback homage to the old school fans... The ones with the biggest problems with this game probbly were too young to play those PC titles back in the day. I also think the ones old enough that did, need to look at it as a Duke game... and not what they wanted... aka Duke Nukem: Babes Of Duty! I feel people don't understand this franchise... and if they actually did, it would score better! But the unfortunate negativity this title is getting. The next Duke won't be Duke as we want him... I mean look at what Gearbox has done with BIA's? Safe to say R.I.P Duke! PS = Im totally having a blast with my copy of DNF!
The game needed a major graphical and physics update before release.
better then call of duty if you ask me
The game may have sucked, but I still have respect for 2K. At least they care about their fans.
Is this really as bad as people say?
No, but then again I can't speak for the console versions.
Nope, on my third playthrough at the moment on PS3. The 360 has framerate and tearing issues though.
i might give it a shot, im always weary when there seems to be a unanimous agreement amoungst reviews that a game is crap, more often than not when i play myself its not what revies make it out to be
I had a total blast playing the game. And once you finish it you get the Duke Nukem soundboard. It doesn't have all the lines, but a decent amount. Good stuff!
Agreed - I think a lot of people are just bandwagoning on the hate.
One of my favorite games this year.
blame COD (im serious) people want COD everything cuz its all you all play. stop buying COD and enjoy DNF(those who enjoy it) Dont let this happen to another series you like D: G.A.C.O.D. gamers against call of duty, lol
They should apology for making a bad game which was in development for 14 years!!!! what a waste of energy, time and money. They could of easily rebuilt this game from the ground up with new game engine and etc.
that is awesome i love 2k games they would be dominating the football games aswell I HATE MADDEN! give me my 2k football and ill play football games again... i havnt played a football game since nfl 2k5 its sad but i refuse to give EA my money especially after that
