107. Re: DNF Review Dust Up Jun 16, 2011, 16:24 Jerykk
 
So, again I haven't played, it seems like the HL comparison is fair in that it's a direct attempt to make HL with Duke, but unfair when discussing the successful use of those ideas. It fit HL because it felt deliberate. It doesn't fit Duke because nothing feels deliberate at all, like you say.

Oh, nobody is denying that the HL games implemented these ideas better than DNF. However, from what I've read, most reviewers aren't complaining about the implementation of platforming, puzzle-solving and driving in DNF. They're complaining about the very existence of said mechanics. They repeatedly state that the player doesn't spend enough time shooting things but the very same thing could be said of the HL games.
