When this game finally gets released, it's going to suck.  Big time.

Yeah sure, you can know that without ever having played or seen the game in person.

I think its fair to say that with a game that has been in development such an absurdly long time, has never as far as we can tell actually come close to completion, and has been delayed almost 2 years in the last year alone is "in trouble". I think the game has potential, but my feeling right now is it might be another SOLDNER trainwreck.

Christ!  Sorry!  I'm just saying!  Given my experience, games that are delayed for long periods of time tend to be not so good!  Plus it's an opinion.  Not an end-all be all declaration.

Plus the vids make it out to look like Soldner v1.2.  And that doesn't sit well with me.

It isn't vaporware.  I played it at E3 in LA 2 years ago...

I hate that it isn't out yet.

Medal of Honor: Allied Assault was in no way rushed.

Pacific Assault could have used 2-3 more months but played suprisingly well.

I am not sure if you are referring to console versions or what.

I'm starting to think the final title is going to be "Duke Nukem Forever:STALKER".

Tend? Maybe. But then you can have games like Half-Life and HL2 that are delayed for good reason, and that take advantage of the extra time to finish the game as should be done. Or Blizzard products that get pushed back because the devs know that more work needs to be done. (Then again, StarCraft: Ghost does worry me).

When delays happen, I think the telling issue is how various builds are coming along. If progress is made step by step, though it may take time, and it's worthwhile for the developer financially, then I'm all for a necessary delay.

Delays ok? yea sometimes there are for the best. Multiple delays over a long period that can be diffrent especially from a developer that hasn't ever actually produced anything before. There's been nothing of real substance shown of this game ever but snippits of some gameplay. I'm with the others in the thinking that this is dubious at best. Just sounds more to me like a developer that can't get the product done in the fashion that was origionally touted as(I'd bet especially getting the roaming unscripted AI characters working).
