When I finished DNF my first thought was "is that it", Gearbox promised around 20+ hours of gameplay when they first took over, many will finish this in 9 to 10 hours. Took me 12 but I do tend to dawdle around.
Graphics are basic but they will play on a low end system.
gameplay is basic but could be fun if your new to FPS shooters.
My main gripes are,
Load times every few minutes. Most FPS games at least allow you to finish a level before the load screen.
"2 weapon limit, makes the freeze gun and shrink ray pointless since you have to keep hold of weapons that are reliable.
I love t1ts as much as the next man but this game is supposed to be an 18 not a 12 cert for wanking prepubesants. Is this what Duke has been lowered to: searching for **** and f***ng pocorn. ffs
I couldn't wait to get Bioshock 2 loaded back up which , thankfully, I had put on hold to play DNF. At least I had a good proper fps game to look forward to.
As i mentioned at the start, Duke3d got huge play time, DNF will never be played again and I can;'t even sell the sh1t on because of steam account.
If I read one more post of someone saying " ooh arn't Gearbox so ace for taking up the mantle and actually getting Duke out here" I think i'll scream. No they are not great they are a bunch of greedy barstewards who saw a quick buck from a huge character that millions of devoted fans have been awaiting for years and years, **** ot not they were always going to make a shed load.
Reminds me of the Sex Pistols...."ever felt you've been had". The Great Video Game Swindle"… Expand
