Disappointing is all i can say... This has been one of the much anticipated games during the early 2000's... i remember reading recurrent articles about the wish from fans and especially the magazines' editors to have Duke Nukem come back to life, all in glorious blazing graphics and improved gameplay. But then it died down everytime it was mentioned and nothing came out of it, other than speculations... never got anything from the developers themselves. no trailers, no serious comments, nothing...
Anyways, i agree this took way too long to be released, but then this could as well be taken as a more than possible pre-bankruptcy sign of the developing company, which turned to be true eventually. Duke Nukem... rest forever. I really hope some cheap developer doesn't pick it up, slap the brand name to some shooter game and releases it just to feed off the fan base.
Unless Sony gets the license and revives it into a living legend as a first-party exclusive. Now that would definitely be something to wait for!
I will admit I'm a massive fan of the Duke Nukem series and as you say its not just about graphics it the over the top quirky and cheesy humor and gameplay that made the games great but seriously 12 years of work and this is what they have to show for it a unfinished game with subpar graphics. I mean 12 years is a hell of alot of time to be working on a game, not to mention the fact that technology is ever changing which would have made most of their work on previous game engines worthless, R.I.P Duke.
