Ok, after a few hours.....good lord. Not only are the graphics worse than Half Life 2 but the gameplay is just pathetic.

Maybe playing Chinese Democracy at the same time would help matters.

I totally decided to skip this one ... There was just too much crap surrounding it. As far as I'm concerned Duke was good back in the day ... and those days are long gone. I'd prefer it to stay that way. The only way I would pick this up is for $5 during the steam holiday sale or whatever.

What he said. Not sure I would even pick it up during a holiday sale though.

Not even through a holiday sale would I pick it up.

NVIDIA's 3D Vision is well implemented though.

And you wonder why people *cough*pirate*cough* games these days.

Demos don't cut it and paying for a half assed game is not excusable.

If devs want us to stop.. develop a GOOD game.

I find it to be alright. The humour was good at first, but now I don't even know the humour is there. All throughout the game they are making fun of other games. Halo, Half-Life 2, Doom, etc. which is fun to hear.

But yes, the mechanics, graphics, and voice script are SHIT. Look in the mirror and the way jumps makes Duke like he's a panzy. The animation is very stiff. Girls/NPCs walk like they just had really rough buttsecks (to explain it in another term is hard).

Definitely a rush job, but I definitely do enjoy shooting the aliens. I think the fights are definitely like a first-person Gears of War style, and that seems to work for me. But holy is it linear. And long! I've been playing since I got home and I'm at some underwater level thing. Is there much more after this?

lol ... I'm even too lazy to pirate the damn game. Not even worth that ... haha. :) I guess that's one way to stop piracy.
