I was excited about it, I'm not really a "fan" but do enjoy the series. But I'm at work at the moment and don't have the time to write a complete and full review but a brief few words will apply just as much.
Duke Nukem: Forever is WORSE than Brink. Which is saying something. I truely.... truely feel sorry for the people who pre-ordered the game and paid full price for it and even the people who have bought the "Balls of Steel edition."
Bargain bin fodder, look at Brink.... after a few weeks it went from £34.99 brand new to like £23.99.
I can indeed 100% confirm that it's actually WORSE than Brink. I've got back from work and it's truely god awful, you die WAY to often there's no health pick up it's literally stand around for ages while it regens, and the worst thing is the graphics are literally that of a Xbox original, or at the very best a Xbox 360 Launch game. I installed the game to the HDD and even with doing that it take a good minute or so just to reload at a checkpoint. Truely unforgivable in this day and age. If you're getting home from work and haven't un-wrapped the game yet, I urge you to please don't and send it back for a full refund!
Well, I've given it a weekend, a whilst it looks very dated, has a few issues and stuff, I am really enjoying playing it. Sometimes its a bit frustrating and confusing and looks about 10 years old but I am sort of having a lot of fun playing it. Odd that.
