Tried the demo and thought it was horrendous. The graphics are among the worst this gen and the shooting was abysmal. The only thing that was a bit funny was when they jokes about the development time.
It's not that it's old or feels old, it's just that it's a bit s**t. When you compare it to Ocarina of Time which is even older thn DNF and is still beloved 14 years later, you see Duke Nukem Forever as a giant festooning turd that should have died years and years ago. This someone who plays a lot of old, outdated games. The jump back to 1990s gameplay mechanics should have been easier for me than just about anyone. The problem is that the gameplay mechanics aren't just 1990s gameplay mechanics - they're bad 1990s gameplay mechanics.
DNF is a game that should have been left under DNF status. Scratch that, it was released DNF.
