deus ex 3 actually has potential. I was able to go through the entire first level, without being detected, and found like 4 or 5 ways to traverse every part. That means a lot in this day and age.

the guns and controls feel solid too

I was watching the firefight gameplay video and there were a few things I hated:

Pullout from first person to animation of going down a ladder.
Stopping the action to show close combat takedown.
Lost of crap on the heads up display.

If you see the video, you'll understand.

the HUD is near invisible, a huge step up from 2, where the hud was literally 50% of your screen, and pissed a lot of people off.

The third person bit could be better, I agree, but takedowns are satisfying, it works in the context.

Anyone else kinda 50/50 on this game? What I mean is that half of me is glad that the game if finally here, and the other half wishes that it was still vaporware and a running pop culture joke.

edit- yes I'm aware the joke got stale 5 years ago...but still

No game could live up to 12+ years of hype.
Sad thing is, it doesn't even look like they were trying very hard.

So far (I'm at "Crash Course" or whatever it's called) the game feel somewhat incomplete, like Gearbox was just slapping together the parts 3dRealms got around to finish, and then upped the difficulty and put in some repetetive and/or unfair (try and error) scenes to extend playing time.

Some random sucky things:
- Duke can only carry 2 weapons at a time (why dear god, why?).
- (Re)Loading times are unbelieveable, common scenario at a difficult checkpoint:
1,5 minute load, 20 seconds play, dead, 1,5 min load, repeat
- difficulty level can only be set at the very start of the campain
- graphics not up to date, but look better then Duke3D with HiResPack at least
- frequentl framerate drops
- I'm ~6 hours into the game, yet there's no jetpack, freezeray, shrinkray or holoduke yet
I dunno if I have the inspiration and motivation to even finish the game.

Give my Serious Sam 3 PLEASE

Very well put.
It was like Schrödiger's Video Game all those years, and now the box is open and we can see the cat has been dead for some time.

There is freezeray, holoduke, and shrinkray in the game. MP screens suggested jetpack is in it too.

Damn I forgot all about this. Did you people really expect something other-worldly?

I knew it was probably a piece of crap but needless to say I'll play it with an unmatched vigor until I absolutely cannot stand it.

Then I'll play World of Tanks which is my latest passion.

It's sad people ar egonna trash this game for what it is, a game that was meant to be played/released a decade ago.

If this game came out when it was meant to, it would have been a hit.

Instead they kept changing the engine and starting over.

The game was dead, we were never going to get to play DNF period. Then Gearbox stepped up and salvaged it and had a choice to make.

They could either take what assests they got form 3drealms, polish it up and fix it up and release it soon.

OTherwise they could start fresh, develop an entire new game, take a couple of years and put out a new game. This would cost them lots of money, make fans wait even longer, etc.

So they ovviously chose the first option. A lot of people are expecting oto much from this game.

Hell I watched the "WTF is DNF" video and the guy was like "So annoying, going through linear areas and waiting for a scripted event to play." Meanwhile tha'ts EXACTLY what Call of Duty games do and look what they get review wise.

Not sure what people; wanted from this game. It's just a shooter with Duke's humor and one liners thrown in while you blow shit up. It's not going to hav ea mind blowing story or emotional acting characters.

The main complaint I can agree with is the mouse control. It seems to suffer from that stupid Broderlands mouse smoothing that makes it feel floaty and not that precise. Hopefully you can turn that off and get it right.
