DNF Review Dust Up

Ars Technica has a screenshot of a since-deleted tweet from PR firm The Redner Group with an overt threat about negative reviews of Duke Nukem Forever, saying: "#AlwaysBetOnDuke too many went too far with their reviews...we r reviewing who gets games next time and who doesn't based on today's venom." A follow-up tweet backs off from this and apologizes: "I have to apologize to the community. I acted out of pure emotion. I will be sending each of you a private apology." A pair of subsequent tweets stress that this was Redner acting on its own, and that "2K had nothing to do with this." As of this writing the Metacritic scores for the first-person shooter sequel are 57 for the PC edition, 56 for the Xbox 360 edition, and 48 for the PlayStation 3 edition.

Well, you need to have something worthwhile to do if you're not shooting stuff, and it sounds like people feel Duke doesn't. Sounds like they also feel that the puzzles are a step back from HL2, which makes no sense considering HL2 is what, 7 years old now?

The question is why they dislike the non-combat segments. Do they dislike them simply because of what they are or do they dislike their actual implementation? It seems like many people just hated the fact that you were platforming, solving puzzles or driving instead of shooting aliens, regardless of how well these things were implemented. I like platforming and puzzle-solving and I enjoyed their implementation in DNF. Driving, not so much, but I don't like vehicles in shooters at all so that has less to do with implementation and more to do with the mere presence of the driving segment. I felt the platforming and puzzles were on par with the HL games, which isn't necessarily a bad thing because the HL games still hold up well today.
