The gameplay footages that have been released so far, don`t show any sign of creativity ( which made duke 3d so popular). I mean we should think about it this way: would you still buy it , if it wasn`t a sequel to DUKE? "kicking ass" and " having fun" is something that you can do in many games,Bulletstorm had the same theme and gameplay, and it offered much better graphics.( just for comparison. I don`t criticize this game for it`s graphics.)

you just know this game is going to suck monkey nuts, and not in a good way. it gets released soon and we're yet to see anything more than small clips of gameplay footage - which don't look good i smell the flop of the year

Born October 2nd 1988, proud to say that I couldn't care less aout graphics, I agree with RO-nin187. As long as it's close to 3d, I can play it til I die. Also, Thugdraft gets extra points of awesome forsaying "Always bet on Duke" THAT is true.

sure, the graphics dont look that great, sure, its not a milestone in fps games but its DUKE! all i expect is that its as close to 3d as possible! i wanna hear bad jokes, see sick moves and play until my hands bleed :D

Ya, the graphics aren't amazing. But IMO I thought COD Crap Ops had horrible graphics. That sure hasn't stopped all the COD fanatics from playing it... The graphic fanatics probably weren't even born when Duke 3d was out. We need a modern day Rise of the Triad :)

@THUGDRAFT yeah they just see graphics! go with your modern warfare 3 that has been 1 year in development then. duke nukem has been in development for more than 10 years and im sure its gonna be a lot of fun, gaming is about fun not graphics people lets not forget that

I really should just give up but I can't help it... All these "OMG bad grafix!!" morons are driving me nuts. Only thing I can figure is that you're all trolls... or you're all partially blind. Or both. Blind trolls. Go watch a gameplay video of Crysis 2 and then come back and watch this video again. Keep in mind that parts of this video were, in fact, taken from different stages of development. Focus on the rooftop shrink ray battle with the flying Commander for comparison, since that seems to be one of the more recent clips. Bottom line: It's certainly not anything amazing graphics-wise, and yeah, there are better graphics out there... but its right up there with your average modern FPS. Hi-res textures and models, good particle and lighting effects, etc. I'm gonna laugh real hard when people start playing the demo this weekend and realize that the game actually looks pretty damn good (and plays even better... which is what matters anyway). Always bet on Duke. In the meantime, if anyone can actually explain why the graphics in these videos are "so bad" I'd be very impressed...

Umm, I've never played Duke Nukem 3D... I only played those 3rd person ones on the playstation. This looks awesomely awesome though. By the way, graphics don't have to be good for me, as long as the game delivers the awesome-ness it is expected to! :D

I love all duke nukems and this one interests me with the new weaponry.

Why is everyone so shocked about the graphics?? How long has it been in development??!?!?! I just hope its as long and open as the last one. I love the modern FPS but hate how on rails they are.

LOL I've seen better graphics on the iPhone (Infinity Blade, Real Racing HD, Id's Rage etc)

I just hope they have tweaked the aiming since this video. The guns just zoom in without going down the sights or anything and same with the sniper. No reticle or anything, I was kinda hoping for old school Duke without sights or aiming in but either way it will probably work out in the end.

This isn't about graphics. I know we have a vertain standard set in our mind about how games are supposed to look, but there can be exceptions. It's about Duke and his awesome adventure. The graphics seem aliright to me and i am someone who has seen some of the best. But i not going to spend time comparing graphics when i could be kicking ass and having fun. Just sharing my thoughts. This message isn't targeted at anyone specific. JUNE 14th CAN'T BE ANY FARTHER AWAY!!!

This game will be awesome fun but gotta admit I'm kinda disappointed with the rather lack luster weapon selection I mean golden eye 64 had 3 times the amount of guns if not more AND you could chose from them anytime you want as long as you picked it up. I kind of nervous this game wont live up to the hype...oh well as long as I can fling poop all over the place I'm good.

you look so good to kill,but i,ll kill you anyways,that,s a line from Dn on N64,you you are about to fight against your clone,this new DN isn,t looking so bad it looks fun.

I hope the multiplayer plays more like Team Fortress in tone, rather then old-school shoot and spray. Seems like all the goofy scifi stuff (shrink rays, etc) could make for some great, fun gameplay.

I seriously hope that this game rocks cause Duke is one video game character that i think shouldn't fade away with time.

People complaining about graphics are PS2 generation kids. They didnt grow up with the Duke, so they dont get it.

i don't think that the final version of the game will differ from this video quality but the gameplay will be fun.

I really hope this was alpha footage, since both animation and models looked bad.

@thuban I doubt that's how the game will actually be, I'm assuming that was just for presentation, as is common.

whats with the zoom feature and no reticle tbh i dont care about no reticle for normal use, IF there is a thru the sights view. but based on this vid, the sight view mode, even in scopes, is just a zoom of the camera? plz tell me that its just some weird setting they had it in for the preview and not a finished view.

@LazyGamerX true the grathics arnt insane but im sure it will be more fun then most of the modern shooters that are being pumped out...... till this day i still find duke3d golden eye and hexen more fun so grathics dont mean a thing.

LazyGamerX

ugh, I just cant get over how ugly the graphics are. And the action looks so generic! idk maybe the gameplay will turn out to be fun but right now my hopes arn't very high.

Yeah, hoping there r a lot more guns also. Other than that, looks like the Duke is back.

Seems like a nice mix of original guns and new ones although I thought there'd be way more original guns.
