Duke's troubles are forever getting worse as the Xbox 360 critics bite harder than ever.
"Generally Unfavourable" lol.
not good for duke
Is it really that bad like people say? Or, is personal hype clouded rational thought because it took so long to finally get released? I will play the demo with no expectations other than it's duke and he is here to kick ass and chew bubble gum......and he's all out of gum.
0-25 = Bad. 25-50 = below average. 50 = Average. 50-75 = above average. 75-100 = Excellent.
I feel bad for Gearbox, Randy is such an awesome guy. Just make Borderlands 2 already
in what world is 75 excellent?
For movies it works like this. 75 is a great score, and 80+ is exceptional. The games industry "journalism" is run by a bunch of fanboy basement-rats and trolls sitting on their moms couch.. get real b*tc*es, nothing is perfect. All the 10/10's you give is just a senseless number given by a person addicted to piehole
any game that scores below a 70 is more than likely crap
0-25 = Bad. 25-50 = Below Average. 50 = Average. 50-75 = Above Average. 75-90 = Good 90-100 = Excellent. Fixed
In a underachiever world apparently max.
49: RED COLOR...BAD 50: Yellow Color...Medicore Difference between the 2? A point. Man its been a slow news week.
Oh. By , " A Point " I thought you mean like, a literal point. Something you could talk about. nvm.
After seeing the gameplay videos, did anyone expect otherwise?
looks like a game that should have been released 10 years ago
And you have Peter Molyneux ashamed of 80 Metacritic score. Kind of puts things into perspective Peter.
Biggest gaming disappointment ever? I thought so. Gives the Duke a bad name. In second place is the N-Gage. xD
Meh duke deserves it.
As usual, there was no need to see gameplay footage or anything. As soon as the games reviews are under embargo until AFTER release, you generally know that the game is a total flop.
Totally right, it would have been day 1 for me but I was on holiday, got home and looked at reviews, didn't buy, it'll be in the bargain bin in no time, next to Crackdown 2, I could pick that up new for £4.95 now!
Its totally worth a bargain bin price. If you like Duke that is. You will get a nostalgia feel from the first few levels, and that alone is worth like 10 bucks. 60 dollars though....lmao...about that.
Thats what happens when you rely on a brand to deliver and not update the franchise with modern gameplay.
Don't see why the game is being slammed this hard. I mean 2's & 3's, as a score for this game is just crazy BS. I bought the game for the sole reason that it looked like a decent Duke fps to add something a little different & unique to my huge PS3 fps collection. I bought it from a store here in Australia, as opposed to where I usually purchase (which is online from playasia, or maybe from JB), as Game & EB's in Australia offer a 7 day return policy with full refund. I bought the game & played it for a couple of hours the 1st night I had it.....I played a game online to test that & thoroughly enjoyed it, then I spent some time on single player. Then a few days later I saw a score of 2 & thought to myself, "man, I'll have to fire the game up again as I have made a drastic oversight in my 1st night assessment". So I did just that & what should have been a 10-15minute look at the game & the flaws they had pointed out in said review ended up being another couple of hours addicted to this game playing the far from ground breaking campaign. I even put it on again the other day for a play & to see if I may have accidently sniffed some hullicenigetic glue on those 2 previous occasions of playing, but again I found myself having a ball flying through the levels in a radio controlled buggy. And basically I came to the conclusion that our modern society just hates a throwback type game like this. I mean sure, the graphics are well below a KZ3 or MW2, but fact is, the game offers fun. Good old fashioned fun, the very reason I got into, & still love game today. I'm not a gamer that takes my stats, ratio's & all that BS seriously as many a COD or BF2 head does. I simply buy my games for the enjoyment of the game, the fun factor, & the fact they don't take themselves too seriously. I mean, I certainly like & have time for the COD's & BF2's & they have there place here in the biz, but then again so does the Duke...The Duke has paid his dues ten fold, & to see some bodgy, hack, 3rd rate reviewers (including that turd from IGN) giving this game a 2 or 3, is them doing a disservice to gamers & this industry. One of the reviews I read slammed the gameplay/controls, when I found them to be very responsive & great, also saw shots taken at frame rate but PS3 version I've been playing has not slowed or chugged once that I've noticed, & level design was knocked when I found the levels to be just fine & no more linear or less imaginative to COD or any other disguised corridoor shooter akin to COD.
Proof that procrastination never ends well.
looooooool hahahahahahaha Great one. +bubs haha, story of my life.
this game would have done awsome 4 years ago.. it feels like a LAUNCH 360 game.. u can tell which parts Gearbox tweaked and worked on.. and which ones were done before.. the levels are so linear though.. the game is alright and has its DUKE MOMENETS.. but its not the Duke Nukem it could have been my main issue was FRAME RATE DROPS!.. like crazy when there are explosions going.. especially when fighting Queen B!t<h, after playing Red Faction Armageddon online its so disappointing to play Duke..
Honestly GearBox Drop Duke its a sad excuse for a game look at the scores no more excuses you've wasted you're ressources/profits on that trash, Now start hyping up Borderlands 2, now that train I'll ride.
the game is definitely better than it's being rated but when you take that long to make a piece of turd of a game, it's going to be judged much more harsh
If you got disagrees. It is from the early adopters who succumbed to the hype around this crap game. Don't get mad at me because you jumped on a game that originated from development hell. That alone should have told you someone was reluctant to approve the game for publishing, marketing, and sale.
We need a game that can compete with this Duke Nukem sequel.. How about Daikatana 2?
