Windows 7: Duke Nukem Forever

got to agree with what i've seen so far with the demo, but then again i've only had time to play for less than an hour - i'm sure i would have found more time if i thought it was worth it.

there are some laughs to be had, but it is a bit clunky and dated.

don't think i'm going to buy the full version.

Never actually played any of the originals, although i may have a look around for Duke Nukem 64 for the n64 as i have an emulator but i do want to play this.

One thing though, Can anyone tell me how big the download is from Steam.

I have a slow internet d/l speed and unless the server is not busy, it can take a couple of days for say Metro 2033 to d/l

Many thanks

Dang... tough crowd!

I'll look for the demo before pulling the pin out, as much as I loved the old games, I still need to be entice and immersed in the game to be able to enjoy it. I also need a change of scenery and if all I am going to get is linear paths inside a dark box, I feel I am not going to enjoy this one very much.

I also think for a lot of us, who played the old game, it was a long time ago. We have changed, matured, etc....so what was great then might not always translate to great now. I remember roommates in college who dug out old Atari's and such and brought them to college to go back and play those great old games....but I'll be honest with the Playstation 1 sitting there...those old consoles got VERY VERY LITTLE use. The games just weren't as great as people remember them.

changing the subject a little, i've noticed that the demo also installed the AMD dual-core optimizer program on my intel system, and added it to the msconfig startup tab.

that seems a little silly...

i've just manually unticked it, so shouldn't get any problems.

been playing it now since it came out, ukno what i think its a very good game, the change in game play is so dramatic, going from close quarters to massive outside scenes just varies so much and things you can do, fairly impressed, maybe maybe a little more on the graphics but still looks good enough

It's Duke! There are some funny stuff in the game, as an FPS it's nothing new or original, but it's Duke! At this point, after waiting for so long, my personal expectations were extremely low, that's why I like it, but surely won't be replaying it anytime soon.

It feels like the game is easily forgettable, but it still IS an enjoyment to play.

I was going to go grab the demo and try it out, until I found out that you have to jump through hoops and such to get it. Looks like I'm skipping it for sure.
