    It used to be that we expected objectivity in our press. Even when they were expressing opinions, as in a review, there was the expectation of some humility owing to the fact that opinion is not fact and particular opinions are not universal. Today, the decorum that objectivity and humility lent to the press have been exchanged the hubris and emotionalism of the "in your face style" that people crave.

    I have not read any of the DNF reviews and I do not intend to, however if venom was spewed then I stand behind The Redner Group in their blacklisting. It was perhaps a mistake to make it public, but as a game publisher one would assume that anyone spewing venom did not have the good of the gaming industry in mind and was simply pandering to the masses or appealing to their own distorted sense of superiority. As a publisher I would not want to encourge that type of press.

    For the most part as well reviews are simply one's opinion. Games are a bit different from let's say movies in that if there are technical glitches or gameplay mechanics that simply don't work that is a legitimate problem.

    If I read a negative review and it is negative simply for story reasons or they found a certain section of the game boring I completely disregard it. BUT, if a review points out technical issues that does sway my opinion.

    This is all very disappointing. I was planning on picking this up in the next couple days. Maybe I'll get the new red faction instead.

    I got this for the pc and I am at the part from the demo, I have kinda abandoned it for now, its a fine shooter, but DN its not, aso the graphics aren't where I feel the should be, this is an unreal based engine, ala Gears, Bioshock, BulletStorm, Singularity, and I feel it looks like it came from 2001.

    DUKE NUKEM FOREVER
    I used to play Duke back in the day. Not a drooling fan of the series but then again I've never met someone who is. I was stoked from all the hype surrounding DNF for years like alot of you. I preordered the Balls of steel edition out of anticipation. I got the demo and was not blown away. My finger wavered steadily over the cancel button on amazon. Then the bad reviews came in. This game got no love that I've read about. It was raped with a three pronged spear. Now out of curiosity I have rented the Duke for a couple of days from Redbox. Its a good solid game. Its fun. There are glitches and slowdown and obvious years of toil, but I would give it 8 out of 10. I don't know much about how dated the gameplay is, (I still go back to older games all the time), but it's fun to me. What I would like to know is if anyone else feels the same, or do you think it's crap like I have heard in all the reviews? Multiplayer doesn't count in this. Obviously that part of the game is just an add-on. And does mostly suck. Lets talk Duke.
