Duke Nukem Forever
Don't listen to the critics--it's time to party!!
As a fan of the Duke Nukem franchise, I was as frustrated as the next guy by the nearly decade long wait. I am now 24, and I was about 13 or so when I first played Duke Nukem 3D. Babes, bullets, and a hero that spewed witty one-liners almost as often as he spewed bullets from his ever handy array of weapons, that summarizes the Duke Nukem experience.
Duke Nukem Forever is a nice trip back down memory lane. The graphical effects are nice (observe what happens when Duke is near water), the gameplay is as outrageous as ever, the jokes are still funny and crass, and Duke is as Terminator-like as he ever was.
Pros: Good old, run and gun gameplay.
Cons: Two weapon limit, Duke feels a bit more vulnerable than he did in Duke 3D. Also, some gamers might find this game offensive.
Overall review: If you waited over a decade for this, don't expect anything revolutionary. But if you want to return to a forgotten era of great gaming, pick this game up now!
He's come to kick our butts and chew bubblegum....
....and, it looks like we're all out of bubblegum.
Long Awaited Duke Nukem Forever
Duke Nukem has certainly made its mark upon gaming history, as well as this project that's been 13 years in the making. I always had my doubt that 3D Realms would ever have it released. But, after reading Take Two's strong interest in the project and reputation for its games. Duke Nukem Forever will be kick butt and live up to gamer's standards. I can't wait to finally play it. Finally the long Awaited Duke Nukem Forever will be here. 2K will NOT disappoint! This is a must game for everyone. Could with this game can later a Duke Nukem Movie?
WOW! FINALLY! IT'S HE'S BACK!
Wow! I was in my mid 20's waiting for this, now at 40, I thought He'd never come back. Duke's array of PC titles were my all time favorites back in the day, during my teenage years. I may seem old now, but my love for PC Gaming started out with the Duke, Wolfenstein, Quake, and DOOM! My big kid heart never left :) DUKE NUKEM FOREVER: BALLS OF STEEL EDITION SECURED! ;)
The Baddest game you will play for a decade
I can't believe it is actually being released! I have been following Duke since duke3d, and D#$@, it about time. Back in the day Duke3d was absolutely groundbreaking, and I have great expectations for this release. Those who don't know who Duke is will soon learn of his exploits. No game has ever been released since, that has even come close to shear wickedness of Duke Nukem, I can't wait to visit the strip club!
....and they said this was vaporware.
Finally after what seems to be more than 10 years Duke Nukem Forever is coming... Get reading to baton down the hatches and nail the doors shut.
Awesome if it happens
I liked all the Duke games and have been waiting a long long time for this one and I hope it's as good as promised,but all in all i'll believe it when I see it on my computer and in my hands.
Fun Single Player
The single player is fun and innovative. I got this on Gamestops daily download of the day for $9.99 and it was worth it. Duke was a stud years ago and he still is so don't let the troll's talk you out of it. Especially at the price you can get it at now. I tried the multiplayer and it stunk bad but FFA and TDM are dead when you compare it to mission specific Black Ops, Battlefield, or MW. Buy it for the single player, if anyone plays single player for entertainment anymore.
Duke Nukem MP rocked
I used to make my own MP map for Duke. When the net was kinda new, I always seem to attract this one player named WAX2. My maps were totally fixed, meaning I only knew of the secrets and the techniques to get the goods. Even if you looked at the map in a editor, you were kinda lost to figure it out. Anyway I loved used the jetpack and swoop down on ole WAX2, shrink em and smash....sometimes just walked around him...lol I CANT WAIT TO PLAY DUKE AGAIN,..
PS All these years I really would like to know who WAX2 was..... he/she was a good opponent... cheers....
If the year was 1998 and this game was in the old style Duke Nukem graphics I would have loved it. But it's not and it's horrible.
It's simple to pick up and play and that's all I will give it. I felt like I could not hit ANYTHING in the game even when they were close up. The controls are simply that clunky. The one part I absolutely hated the most was the driving parts, nothing says lack of control like those did.
The story of the game was nothing new. Earth is being invaded, they steal our women, we're losing and so we send in Duke Nukem. Even the jokes through out the game were old and disappointing. Maybe a 14 year old would have liked them (which I did when I was that age) but as an adult I can only take so many bedroom and bathroom jokes before I need a break.
Even with an above average set of stereo headphones I had no hearing detection for the life of me. I'm not asking for pin point 360 degree sound detection, but when I have a hard time determining if it's on my left or right there is a problem. Even the music and sound effect were lack luster.
Doom 3 had better graphics and it's 5 years old. 'nuff said.
The only lasting appeal is that it will forever be in my list of Steam games. To sit and never be played again.
I would recommend this game to only my enemies and people I really hate. It's that bad.
