Jon St John hits out on the critics

Speaking exclusively to TheJoyPads. Jon St Jon, the voice of Duke Nukem shares his thoughts on the critics that slammed Duke Nukem Forever.

With Duke Nukem Forever receiving reviews as little as 0/10 up to 10/10 at some gaming site. It would come to no surprise that a game that has took 14 years to be released, would carry such burden. I asked Jon St John if it was ok to share his thoughts and this was the response he gave me.

 

Jon St John: “I have no comments regarding bad reviews by clueless critics. They seem to want to compare Duke Nukem Forever to Call Of Duty and other FPS’s and they are missing the point. My thoughts about Duke Nukem Forever: It freakin ROCKS! Lots of action, lots of fun, sexy, funny, irreverent… It’s everything I hoped it would be.”
