I played this game with my friend, I wanted to bash my head in with the controller but he was so blinded by Bethesda making this game that he thought it was a perfect jewel, so I endured it for his sake...for 3 HOURS x.x

orangeapples:
Don't worry about it, you already reviewed DNF like 2 years ago, and that review is still on the mark.

No, that review was positive. I'm not nearly as critical as Yahtzee but I found the game only passable. The game I played after that (Necrovision, like a low-budget mixture of Painkiller and Bulletstorm) to compare DNF to another mindless shooter blew me away with how much more fun it was.

Thanks for the heads-up another game I won't be buying. Now I'm going to watch the DNF review from 2 years ago, but as far I remember that one will be quite spot on anyway.

Can't say im suprised. Hunted is one of the worst games ive had the displeasure of playing in a LONG time.

Try out Mindjack and you'll see what a truly bad game is and realise how Hunted isn't that bad.

IMO this game isn't that bad. I enjoyed it more than I did Homefront, DNF and a couple of the other releases this year. The Online co-op was very bad but playing co-op is a good laugh and when I didn't have someone to play with I never had any problems with the AI. Actually on the flip side I found the AI to be quite good as it saved my bacon a number of times during boss fights when I was playing as Caddoc.

Are those maltesers you're hunting candy or alcohol?

I know those things but was it those or Malterser Akvavit? I guess they don't sell the latter in Australia...

JoJoDeathunter:
Where's the Duke Nukem Forever review?

Seriously though not too bad a review though considering I've never heard of this game and it doesn't interest me in the least.

Awesome avatar xD.

On topic: I was a little surprised that Yahtzee addressed the comments for each of his videos this time. That's pretty much all I have to say about it though.

I'm pleased that the mcguffin in the review was a delicious cadbury egg. I would go thru mezzanine mazes for cadbury eggs.

I'm surprised Yahtzee has to explain that games that came out a day ago can't be reviewed. I thought everyone would've figured that out by now...

It was released in the EU and Australia on the 10th. It only came out yesterday in the US.

Okay. I'm surprised A) The game came out in australia at all really.
B) I'm surprised people expect him to review games he's had less than a week to do.

Don't bother doing DNF. Your previous review will suffice, what with you mocking it to seem like an excellent game, only to shit on the developers for not actually putting a game out. Because the only difference NOW is that you could continue to mock it as if it were an excellent game, only to shit on the developers for finally putting the game out...and making it awful.

So, I'd rather hear about inFAMOUS 2 instead, if it's one or the other.

Just as well I avoided this game... reviews, playing and slapping my friend's hands whenever he started it up. I told him he would rage/make snarky comments/not finish it, and true to all accounts... he's playing LA Noire... again.

Still, loved the Dr Strangelove reference... no-one?

The DNF review is obviously gonna take at least 14 years to make.Also damn you Yahtzee for tricking me on the last DNF review that it was actually real...

I'd like to say that Hunted was a pleasant diversion and a decent dungeon crawler.Still it wasn't a particularly good game or something defense worthy so I larfed at Yahtzee's review :P.

And to derail a little seeing as I'll never get the desired attention to "my personal problems" thread.I have a massive problem with Escapist videos and actually this one resulted in a bluescreen but I couldn't resist watching it.The details are in the thread and I'm practically begging for some help :/.

Dammit its been 13 minutes since Duke was out! Wheres the review?!

A. I know, right? Not only is it odd they got if first, but that they got it at all.
B. Is he not a dirty australian monkey man who should dance for our pleasure as he suggested in his Guitar Hero/Rock Band review? :P

CAPTCHA: your mistem. What about my mistem?

HankMan2.0:
I bet that first boss fight really bugged you, eh Yahtzee?

What, Did you think I was gone forever?

Ah, I missed the puns...

OT: Yeah, never was into dungeon crawlers, and this game seems like it took the worst parts of the genre and then put in the worst parts of co-op gameplay...

Given the hilarity of his first DNF review I suspect Yahtzee will need to take some time putting together his second one.

So Yahtzee... when ya doing Duke Nukem forever *trollface*

Currently playing Hunted the Demons Forge with a friend and I agree it's a dreary single player experience but with a friend I found it pretty enjoyable. It definitely has its faults, it's not the most pleasant game to look at, the combat and control's are clunky and whoever thought it was a good idea to have limited potions and shields that break from two hits needs slapped across the face. None the less I'm still enjoying it, it's consuming enough time to stop me hoping for another good gaming experience to release this year.

...who expected him to review DNF today? I didn't. But I guess not everyone IS familiar with his schedule.

Funny review and spot on review.The game really felt like medieval Gears of war with all the covering I had to do while playing the elf.

I haven't laughed so much in quite a few days so thank you for that.

Most game narratives need to constantly drag around player characters like so much dead weight, and constantly feed them basic facts about their own world, so right off the bat they make the player character worthless in almost every way. And Fashionably Late Syndrome somehow manages to make the player character even more worthless.

I tried it. It's literally every bit as bad as Yahtzee says.

first

where's duke nukem forever

Am I funny now?

No point most reviews already say it sucks he might as well do inFamous.

Every time Yahtzee dislikes a game, I just assumes that it was too difficult or complicated for him, so he resolves to merely fling petulant, misogynistic insults at it in a sad attempt to validate is own inability to not be a leaky teat.

I really would have liked to see him bash on DNF
but i know and have allways known that it is really effing hard to come up with all that shit for one episode in one week....
I mean we all cant even do our homework and he gives us an episode each week so be thankful

2:04

Nooo don't blow up my RSX! Oh wait, mine's a type S. We're cool.

Sorry Yahtzee but really do need you to tear Duke a new asshole...make that arsehole.

I think 90% of us were expecting Duke Nukem Forever, but I can understand if there wasn't enough time to make a video review. Maybe next week!

N'aww, I had my eye on that game. I'd have bought it if I had someone else willing to Co-Op it with me. (They didn't want the game I'm not.. just a loner >_>)

I'll probably still get it from the bargain bin some day.

Oh, and, obligatory Where's-Duke-Nukem-Hurr-Hurr-I'm-the-first-person-to-think-of-this-I-bet joke.

I got this game and played it with a friend, we had a lot of fun, I think all the hate the game is getting is over-done.

MobiusZwei:

I see what you did there.

Yahtzee Croshaw:
Snip

Trust me when I say nobody is enjoying seeing Duke Nukem Forever not only being a massiver dissapointment but being taken one huge dump all over our faces.

Yeah who cares about this game. I like everyone else just want to hear him rip on that godawful piece of crap Duke Nukem Forever. Endlessly delayed to the point of irrelevance with dated graphics, terrible gameplay, and unfunny rape and poop themed humor, DNF is a textbook example of how not to make a game.

Yah, but often times he releases his review after all the outrage died down so it feels like he came late to a party, a great example being Fallout New Vegas and his climatic joke at the end that came after millions of threads on the games bugs probably on here alone and people had stopped posting them.

great review as always, keep up the good work

I would say funny review, but that's what I always say, so I'll say it backwards: weiver ynnuf. Seriously, Yahtzee, you brighten up my Wednesdays.
Also, I bet he's going to hate DNF. I can just feel it.
