4.0 out of 5 stars Great fun, 14 Dec. 2011
By 
This review is from: Duke Nukem Forever (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
I honestly don't get why this game has so many bad reviews iam really enjoying it. I have been playing it for roughly 8 hours, and so far I have had the most fun this year playing a video game, and isnt that the reason we play games....to be entertained?
I went into this thinking it was going to be awful due to reviews I had read, but it was cheap and I remember playing Duke Nukem 64 (which was good fun) so I decided to take a gamble.
I' am glad I did, iall say now I was enjoying it, but then the game clicked and I loved it (roughly about an hour in), I did notice the flaws initially, screen tearing, average graphics, but I either dont notice them any more as iam use to them or they go during thee course of the campaign.
The graphics arn't amazing but there definately not pants like some people are saying, to say there PS2/original XBOX graphics is a lie (iam playing this 1080P, so can't comment on people who are playing it scart).
Yes the aiming is far to sensitive for my liking, but you can change that in the options menu, once I done that I found it fine.
Some people are complaining about the puzzles,now I got to admit I loved them. Its a refreshing change from the modern brainless shooters (COD games esp), for the record I do actually like COD games, especially modern warfare 2, but DNF has so much more going for it.
Its funny, random and difficuilt in places.
You even have boss battles again, which for me is awsome.
The main problem people have is the loading times when you die, and yes iam afraid its true and is the main reason for me not giving it 5 stars. It can be infuriating waiting up to a minute for it to load.
The pluses outway the minuses though.
Anyway grab a copy, and enjoy yourself. Iam sure you will be plesantly suprised, I know I was.

I'm not sure why, one of the reasons may be the loading times but the others is that the game is not up to compete with Call of Duty / BattleField or the graphics aren't too fancy.

I agree, this game is great!
