Tried the Demo on PS3 and it was sub-par in my opinion. The jokes wre funny but the storyline and gameplay did not impress me or my hubby.

XPLay gave this game a 1 out of 5. For a game that was 14 years in the making. and to come up with that type of game that has so many glitches is unprofessional in my opinion. I am sure that this game brings back memories for most but I dont think they should have just put something out to put something out. They should have given the game justice with time and polish.

Yeah, I felt like a kid again playing a fun game but there are alot of haters out there. It's way better than any game based off a movie, but not as good as Call of Duty. It's all a matter of personal taste and I think people should at least give it a try if they are interested. They might be pleasantly surprised if they are not offended first. :P

OK Lobo, time to try OnLive. :P

Seriously though, you can go on there and be playing the free trial instantly without having to download any demo. Like I said, the game for me is very fun and made me laugh. It seems badly made, but it makes me feel like a pimple-nosed teenager again.

Speaking of Duke, the Mac version comes out this Fall, I think October? Not sure exact date. But again, if you have a decent internet connection, you can play it on your mac via.... well, you know the answer... lol

I have heard a lot of bad reviews. Is it really that bad. Geez I would have though if it took 13 years to make it would be way better.

Have not played the game (like always the only thing I play occasionally until I finish my degree is WoW) but the few reviews I read on it trashed it. I'm curious how it will go over with those who either rent or purchase it.

I downloaded the demo because I thought I could get an achievement for throwing poop at the wall. When I found out that I couldn't get achievements from demos, I deleted it and reclaimed my free space. It didn't really draw me in.

I thought it was a fun game, I like offensive jokes that are funny also. I haven't tried the multiplayer, but in single player, I find the controls very easy to operate and the enemies are pretty standard as far as attacks go. My only gripe about the game is the insanely long load times you mentioned, even after I install the disk to my hard drive. LA Noir loaded quicker than this. I think this is a macho guy game and the story is funny yet cheesy. I've played many games that were worse, so like LIFEANDALL1 stated, you should play the demo or rent it before making a steep purchase you might regret. :D

Yeah, this is pretty much a turd of a game. The graphics suck, the game play is ancient, and the load screens are painful. However, I am still enjoying the game. There are parts of the single player that are old and boring, but then there are parts that are high-octane fun. The multiplayer is very old school style, but that is somewhat a relief from all the run-and-gun shooters out there.

And yes, there are some very offensive jokes, but for those that are okay with that, they are pretty funny.

I can't complain because I am having fun with it and got it pretty cheap. If you haven't already bought it, I think there are demos on Xbox 360, PS3, and Steam. You can also play the first thirty minutes of the game for free on OnLive. For those that have picked it up, what do you think of it?
