    Yeah, I was glad to play the whole game and get to the end, but none of the level design was so outstanding or memorable that "even more of the same" sounds worth my time or energy.

    I liked Ion Maiden fine enough but that trailer looks like "more of the same" which was one of the biggest issues with the base game already.

    So in other words, it's going to be just as bad as the base game.

    Can't wait to get right into it again.
    Will also be a great time to replay for all the secrets - couldn't for the life of me find even half of them. But I'm also not patient enough to click or shoot every surface in the game ;)

    there were two toys - a jet ski... and a third type of shotgun ammo!
    I thought it was lazy that a shotgun and a grenade launcher have the same sprite, but now they are copying it for the third time with this flak cannon.

    I'm playing through this right now. Sure it doesn't reach the same heights as its predecessors, but I'm having a lot of fun with it. It's a worthy addition to the Build Engine series of games.

    Let's be completely honest - Duke 3D didn't have the best level design in the world in a lot of its levels, and Shadow Warrior is pretty shite. The "Build legacy" is mostly Blood and parts of Duke 3D.

    I also hope that the trailer just isn't the best.
    After the biggest criticisms of the game were "too tame/standard weapons" and "too many samey city levels" - showing mostly the same weapons and large city levels in an extension trailer is odd, to say the least.

    Don't get me wrong, some of those city levels blow anything seen in other Build engine games out of the water (especially that shopping mall one).
    But there is definitely a "too much of a good thing".

    Of course, even if the expansion ends up being only city levels, I'll still like it.
    I'll just also bemoan the squandered potential.

    Ion Fury is very good, but obviously nothing can be as good as Redneck Rampage. The sewer level is the pinnacle of level design.

    Shadow Warrior and Duke are both mixed bags IMO. A lot of Shadow Warrior is shit with some really fuckheaded design choices, and the Lo Wang character is an unfunny nightmare with his three crap catchphrases repeated ad infinitum. YOU COMING APART!! every 30 seconds. Shut up, please god stop.

    As for Duke, LA Meltdown is mostly great, Lunar Apocalypse is mostly crap and Shrapnel City is mostly alright. Blood blows both of its competitors out of the water so hard it's not even funny.

    I really liked Ion Fury, it feels like it stands alongside the Build legacy but also separate from it. Distinctly different gameplay from Duke et al, Build with a modern twist. In its best moments it matches Blood, in its worst moments it's no worse than the weaker parts of Shadow Warrior. Only real problem I had with it was the amount of huge open city levels in the early game, when the game's strengths obviously lie in tight corridor-based design. Shelly gets kind of annoying after an hour, but no more so than Duke Nukem does, and far less than Lo fucking Wang does. The expansion should be a lot of fun even if it's literally just more of the same game.

    Duke Nukem 3D was at it's best in city levels, anything related to spaceships or more full blown sci-fi levels tended to be a lot worse, that being said, Ion Fury's city levels are kinda forgettable with rare exceptions like that Tetris moment, i also didn't really care for most of the weapons aside from the Bowling Bombs which are amazing and fun, and the Revolver because it's secondary fire is pretty fun, the rest are...much more generic than i expected and not as fun to use, but i had to because they are there for a reason.

    You'd think an energy crossbow would be cool, you'd be wrong, DUSK did that super crossbow thing a lot better as it's bolts pierced everything including walls and you could do silly things like making the green mystic bolts jump and flip around.

    The enemies were also mostly generic, i don't know, i just was expecting a game with much more personality and character, and then i found Ion Fury to be mostly forgettable with only some cool weapons and rare great moments to it, i think Duke Nukem 3D and Shadow Warrior aren't the best games ever, but they had more personality in a way, and cooler arsenals, and let's not even mention Blood which is still the best Build Engine game, the Tesla Cannon itself feels more like a cool futuristic weapon than quite a few of Ion Fury's guns.
