I wondered this myself when I saw this criticism in a review, but I haven't played the game yet myself or seen the animations in question. When I read it I imagined the 'hyup!' type jump from DN3D and wondered if it was intentionally the same in DNF, but without having seen it for myself I had put that notion off as silly. Is it actually that similar? (Weird thing to focus on, I know) My only other comment about DNF is that I find it hard to accept when people defend the game's humour in light of the humour found in DN3D. DN3D had some puerile humour, but it was a sideline to the core game; a tiny part of the experience that just lended some atmosphere and amusement. It seems to me that it became the focus of DNF either for the sake of publicity or because the developers lost sight of what people actually liked about DN3D, as opposed to what they remembered thanks to the controversy. As a point of interest, I remember feeling that way about it years ago when seeing some of the OTT stuff creeping into the screenshots; not just about this latest iteration of the game via Gearbox et al.
