Nice review. I only played the demo, but I think critics aren't giving it a fair shake. Yes it may seem dated and whatnot, but if they had tried to give it a big storyline or stray too far from what the original was, they would have complained even more. The original was just violence, sex references, and one liners. It's not modern but that's Duke Nukem. Could it have been done better? Absolutely, but still, you have to keep these things in mind.
