I am Having the Weirdest Time with Duke Nukem Forever
At first, it's hugely annoying and weird to look at. It seems like a 360 launch title and is clunky to boot. But then I set it down for a while and pick it back up and find it fun. As soon as I start really enjoying myself, out pops a game play element straight from the past (they were discarded for a reason)... Stupid puzzles that attempt to prolong the game time are not necessary. Some of the challenges in this game are stupidly difficult as well.
So as I play DNF I keep switching between hate and enjoyment. I haven't had a game make me feel this way in a while. I'm supposed to write a review for it soonish, but to do that I'll have to clear my thoughts. I'm not sure my mind will ever quite settle down though.
It's good but it's bad...
