@ RPG_Fan_I_Am I agree. It's a different sort of criticism that most gamers would give as it's more of a "job standard" than "entertainment standards" if that makes any sense.
@feral_warrior I think the problem is that reviewers have a tendency to forget that some games are designed certain ways o purpose. Duke Nukem was made like that to keep with the traditional Duke Nukem fashion. but reviewers just see a game that seems dated and poorly crafted.
I really don't get how Tron got 7.0 but Duke Nukem Forever got 3.5 or whatever. I thought Tron was good but I absolutely love Duke Nukem Forever. Ah well, goes to show everyone has their preferences and we don't all see it the same. ;)
