hopefully it's not as bad as everyone's making it out to be.  it's not early 90s anymore either so shock value for strippers and excessive cursing isn't enough anymore...  Curious to see how well it reviews.

HB after watching that... the graphics look ok for the pc. It seems like that game is all about sexual innuendos lol. Was that a phallic that you walked upon.

the graphics aren't great but not horrible either...yeah it's dated.  but...if this game was polished with the latest unreal tech; it's using old unreal tech.  and the physics were spot on...everyone would be all over this.  pc gamer gave it 8/10 for a reason.  underneath the dated graphics and the dukeisms is a game of substance.  campaign isn't short either.  some of the puzzles make you think...believe it or not...it's actually fun.

it sucks that youtube playback is limited to under 30fps.  i used vegas for 60fps output which is super silky but forgot about youtube conversion.  game runs smooth.

Wow Gamespot gave the PC version a 3.5 out of 10 which is bad. Ouch

Seems like the consoles scored better than the PC version.

...tough to go by reviews from Ignorant Gaming Nerds as one friend has referred to them and Gamespot.  Crazy to see polar opposite reviews for the game though.  Playing this one it feels as if newer games over the past few years have evolved into 'keep it simple, stupid' when it comes to gameplay.  Some of the puzzles in Duke actually had me thinking...'wtf do i do now?!!'  It feels retro and actually that's something I've missed.
