Another avarage shooter...

SuicideMachine | July 13, 2012 | Review of Duke Nukem Forever

Duke Nukem Forever, a game legendary for its long development process. What's the end result, then? Another average shooter, that does very little to distinguish itself from the rest. It's sad, really - but that's what it is. Surely, some are going to say - "some levels look great and there are some great ideas in it after all", but that's part of the problem - the game presents extremely uneven quality! Indeed, there are some levels that look great, but then - next level looks mediocre, when 2 levels later, you play the level, that looks absolutely abysmal with its brown, yellow and gray color pallet. And sadly - you could say the same thing about every aspect of the game. Some weapons are fun to shoot with, others are not. Sometimes, there is a smart puzzle in a level, but after that you "play" extremely generic quick time event. It's a mixed bag - nothing in it is outstanding and yet, nothing is completely terrible. If you don't mind QTEs, scripted events, "tunnel" level design or you're in for some achievement hunting - you should enjoy it...
