Goddammit! Why did you have to go and do that? No you jinxed it!

You know why Duke Nukem FOrever turned out disappointing don't you? Before it shipped someone said "It's more Duke Nukem; what could possibly go wrong?"

Eh, after ten+ years of hype, I think any game would turn out disappointing. DNF wasn't great but it's not nearly as bad as everyone claims. It was a 7/10.

Isn't that a bit generous? I have a friend who played it. He was a fan of the original. Thought it was maybe 5.5 - 6.

Was it really that enjoyable?

It was decent enough. The biggest complaints against the game were the platforming segments. But then, the Half-Life games had lots of platforming too. Die-hard Duke fans were disappointed that the levels were more linear and scripted than the levels in D3D and that's a valid complaint, but again, the levels in the HL games are linear and scripted too. To me, DNF felt like a weaker version of HL2. That doesn't make it a terrible game. If you enjoyed HL2 and didn't buy into ten years of hype, you'd probably enjoy DNF.
