You know a game will be good when there is tons of hype surrounding it. Unfortunately for Duke Nukem forever the only hype for the game, was the announcement of a 2011 release — it’s been quiet ever since. Assuring that the lack of hype was for a reason, IGN has just gave the game a low score of 5.5, calling it a muddled, hypocritical exercise in irritation — proving that the game is nowhere to what gamers would have liked to see. Although IGN did give it a lower than average score, they did share some positives for the game, such as; “solid shooting mechanics and decent encounter design. There’s some dumb fun to be had in Duke Nukem Forever”.
Well, there you have it. 5.5 is not that bad is it?
