Duke Nukem Forever demo... sucks

So Duke Nukem Forever is finally nearing release and people are playing the demo already. Here's my take on the game that many people thought would never be released.

Short version: It sucks.

Slightly less short version: This game would have been fantastic had it been released between 1997 and 2004. The graphics, gameplay and physics all feel dated and clunky. It feels good to see Duke, his arsenal and the his old foes back in action but they simply haven't done Duke justice. Regenerative health and a two weapon carry limit? Duke Nukem: Modern Warfare has arrived!

My new old school revival hearthrobs now are Serious Sam 3: BFE and Carmageddon: Reincarnation. Here's hoping they don't let me down as much as the Dukester did.

Here are some screenshots, click for bigger.

Thoughts? Comment below.
