I figured you'd bring that up, but if you had to drop your main gun to pick up the gravity gun or rocket launcher for that ONE part then it would suck.

So your issue isn't actually with the ammo boxes or mandatory rocket launchers during boss fights, it's with the 2 weapon limit. I agree that the 2 weapon limit is dumb and didn't benefit this game at all.

EVERYWHERE in duke, there are just RANDOM ammo boxes that refill all current guns ammo. That's as asinine as Deus Ex 2's unified ammo for all guns.

I didn't really think the ammo boxes were that big of an issue. For one, you can only carry two weapons at any given time so being able to refill two weapons isn't that big of an advantage. Secondly, the more common method of refilling your ammo was by picking up the weapons that enemies dropped. That was far more common than the ammo boxes.

Your also not including the boring static emplacement guns that DNF is jam packed full of.

Yeah, the turret sequences were pretty boring. I'm not a fan of turret or rail sequences in general so I agree with you there. Would I say the game is jam packed full of them? Dunno about that. Off the top of my head, I'd say there were maybe 6 or 7 turrets in the whole game. Not enough to ruin the game for me.

AngryBrit's Youtube Video should easily demonstrate a game that does ALOT of what Half-Life 2 does, but SO HORRIBLY. So Terribly, that I never thought I as a longtime duke fan, would want to turn it off because it's playing so bad.

I guess we'll have to agree to disagree on that. While DNF certainly isn't as good as HL2, I don't feel it did anything horribly. The game was compelling enough for me to finish and that's a lot more than I can say for most games these days.
