Welp... I just finished Duke Nukem Forever (PC) on hard.
And y'know what?
It's a damn good game.
I don't care what the fuck [insert blog here] wrote about it, they're full of shit. The game is solid, it's fun, it's a good length, it feels like Duke, it's... it's just good. Not HOLYFUCK AWESOME, but still very good. Most mainstream review sites are shitting all the fuck over it though. I had read all the reviews BEFORE my copy was even delivered. Was starting to feel stupid for spending full price on it, was getting reluctant to even play it based on how bad people were saying it is.
Played it, kept waiting for it to get "putrid and hateful", finished it, loved it.
I now completely question most review sites' credibility. You should too. It was eye-opening for me.
Please, for the love of fuck, watch the following video...
That pretty much sums it up. (Though personally I probably would have given it a 7.5-8.0, but that's me).
I have to wonder what the fuck these people were expecting. IT'S DUKE FUCKING NUKEM! It's a modern Duke game. That's what it is. Don't go in expecting it to be some crazy product of your wild imagination, exactly like Duke3D, graphically on-par with Crysis, some game to end all games... Fuck that shit. It's a solid, modern Duke Nukem game. That's it. Period. And it's good, baby! \m/
