Duke Nukem Forever Review, frame rate and graphics poor

By Posted 12 Jun 2011, 17:18

Duke Nukem has been a classic character to many of our hearts, best known for his derogatory quotes and testosterone-fuelled stature. He had begun to fade after a few hit games in the early 90s as the world evolved and gaming took a new turn and became more realistic. IGN’s review of the latest revival shows that the decision to bring back Duke may have been a mistake.

IGN say that Duke has not taken very well to the ageing process, it appears that most reviews say the game is haggard and past its ‘best before’ date so to speak. So what was it about the game that made IGN score the popular icon an embarrassingly low 5.5 score in their review?

They said that the lack of detail in the game’s graphics accompanied by the poor frame rate were reasons enough to send the score shooting downwards. Would you believe that this was the game’s peak aspect according to the review? The sound and gameplay aspect all took a beating alongside the graphics.

So overall, it looks like Duke shot himself in the foot big time with this release. IGN has rated it low and labelled it mediocre with their score of 5.5. What are your views on the game and will you be buying it still?

I think it compared the game to some other game he or she likes to play.
