It absolutely blows my mind that people are going to pay sixty American dollars for this game in two thousand eleven.

I was going to write this game off until I played Borderlands recently. Now i'd really like to see what Gearbox has done with this game.

Duke Nukem 3d was always one of my favorites. In terms of replayability(and map creation potential), I'd still say it surpassed Quake 1. It's been hard to replicate the sheer awesomeness that was an 8-player D3D fragfest. I'll be the repressed nerd if it means reliving some of those moments in an updated setting.

You guys can keep your +2 str/month MMORPG treadmills if that's worth more for your 60 bucks in 2011. I'll be firing RPGs and leaving pipe bombs in the doorway, sirs. biggun

I am afraid the maps will be like all of the shooters released nowadays.

Corridor -> Cutscene -> corridor -> cutscene etc... Instead of the big areas to explore trying to find hidden secrets like they were when we were in the Doom / Duke era.

Indeed.

Reminds me of those Doom moments when you would complete the map and... "Secret: 80 %". What the fuck did I miss?!?!?!

Been reading up more on this, looking very promising for the FPS genre side of the gaming community.

This game is terrible. Gearbox should be ashamed.

So I guess the maps are only a corridor with cutscenes right?

They took everything fun about Duke 3D and replaced it with everything not fun about every FPS out today.

Low points:
2 weapon limit means the majority of fights are planned around weapon placment. AKA Boring as fuck rocket launcher spot fests. Except pipe bombs. They stuff those down your throat. They don't feel as special like they did in Duke3D.

Regenerating health is queer as fuck sorry.

They show every female interaction in the trailer. Once you're out of Titty City, no more. Duke as a character isn't very deep, but I seriously got tired of hearing "shiiiiiiiiiiiiit' "holy fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck" twenty times between the actual funny duke one liners. Duke didn't need this back then, and doesn't now.

It's more corridor centric than Brink is. I didn't think that could be possible. No longer are there large open sprawling landscapes. It's 99 percent a tunnel farm.

6 hours or so single player. Dukematch is pretty good multiplayer.

Not worth full price, especially console game price. Wait for it to go on sale this christmas on Steam.

Yeah I saw some videos when Australia broke the street date and hung my head in shame. I guess I should have known because Gearbox's only other big game (Borderlands) was another really shitty shooter dressed up in a boring gimmick. It just saddens me that people can justify $60 in any economy on this game.

That's the most terrible thing about it. It's not a bad game in the sense that everything is broken. It's a mediocre game, which will damn it more than anything. They took a simple concept, which was nothing but mindless fun and tried to add in next gen modern things and it turned into a complete pile of shit.

Expect Deus Ex and the new X Com games to suffer the same fate.

I usually don't play the single-player in FPS games anyway. Much like RTS games, that's never been where the fun in them is. An AI opponent is always either incredibly stupid, or has insanely fast reaction times. The only potential reward is usually a bad storyline or a one-liner. Heh, I think I spent maybe a couple hours in Duke Nukem 3D playing through a few levels, and months worth of gametime in the multiplayer =)

My only curiousity is how the Dukematches compare to current-gen FPS games.

If the weapon limit is imposed on multiplayer, that would suck balls. Same if only corridor maps, although users could make new ones.

I think the new "1st-person-perspective, 50's-motif, All-the-Aliens-are-the-Blob" X-Com game is hosed for separate reasons. :)

Pretty awful. I mean one can expect bad reviews just because of the game's history but the AI is horrible.

Bought it last Tuesday, traded it in on Friday. After the first turret section I decided it was not worth my time to continue. If there's any funny lines I missed, I can look them up on youtube.
