Duke Nukem Forever: Balls of Steel Edition
It's a decent buy now
When it came out, I wouldn't have gotten this game if my life depended on it. Now, Might actually go pick up the Balls of Steel Edition since it's only $20! I'm a limited edition freak, though, hopefully it won't be too bad to sell the game back.
This game is awesome but is very repetitive same thing run in shoot the aliens next level. But even with that I enjoy the game. I agree with everyone that the balls of steel edition is not worth the $100 but it dropped to $20 (so I bought it yesterday hehehe) and I thought the stuff in it was worth the money. If you are going to buy the game I suggest you spend the extra $7 for balls of steel.
for a game that took years 2 make sucks balls of steel
Good for a specific audience.
The game Duke Nukem: Forever is a sequel to one of the most popular games of all time and has been in the making for twelve years. The game is good for hardcore gamers who like shooting and plently of puzzles but the crude and raunchy humor sometimes goes a bit too far. Now this game appeals to teenagers who dont want just mind numming shooting like a classic Call of Duty but want a bit of a challenge along with crude humor that is usually either a somewhat comical joke or just taking it over the top with language and a very unrespectful view towards women as well as some are too outdated. It appeals to hardcore Duke fans more than anything however. It was a dissapointment to many because it took twelve years to make and didn't show that that much effort and work was put into it. The special edition is definetly worth the money as it has alot of interesting stuff. So overall the game is decent but would have been more successful if it came out in 2005 and they said it was being made for 1 or 2 years.
Took To Long To Make This Game. I was Hopeing for Better cause they took long to make it
the limited edition and standard edition are bad! the limited edition doesnt come with anything good, and the game itself is boreing, it has bad gameplay, sound, lasting appeal, and the worst of all, THE TOTAL GARBAGE GRAPHICES! and i am not a cod fan so dont be blaming me for not likeing the game because i like cod, thats not the reson.
bad on every level but one.....
ok the limited edition isnt woth 100$ or evern 80$ for many reasons, it doesnt come with very cool stuff like the bust fits in the palm of your hand, the hardcover book is just pictures of girls, the post cards are good, the sticker is boreing, the comic book is the same as the hardcover book its just drawings of girls, it only comes with two poker chips, the card deck is even smaller than one might have expected, and the disc is just wierd and gross. but even the game is boreing it has bad graphics and when i say bad gaphics i mean nintendo 64 graphics! the gameplay is boreing and stail, and when you stop playing it, and i garenty you will wont to after 30 minutes, you wont want to play it for a very long time, the only good thing is the sound it really fits the mood, but just that doesnt make up for all the huge dissapointments this game will offer through out the entire game. so word of advise, dont buy the limited edition, dont buy the standard edition, and dont buy the Strategy Guide!
Very Fun And challanging
this games is very fun because of all the new things you can do and the crazy weapons but if you are not great at games where the path isn't layed out for you then don't get this. the boss fights are great because your not constantly killing the same thing like in cod you actually get a challenge.
Critics and CoD fanboys go home
Don't be fooled by critics and CoD fanboys duke nukem forever is actually a really fun game at it's core. I'm not saying the games perfect as it has MANY flaws. But all in all the single player is really fun and the multiplayer is fantastic sure it could use a patch or two but honestly this game is better than 90% of the games that come out these days. As for the limited edition I truly enjoyed it. The bust is pretty cool gambling items are ok cards are pretty disappointing. But the comic book and art book is where it really shines. The comic book i thought was actually pretty neat and interesting and the art book really gets into the long development of DNF in good detail. All in all if your a fan of old school games like Doom and Quake then this ones for you. If you like modern games like CoD and Battlefield just stay away as you probably wont like it.
UMMM yeah not worth it
so with the balls if steel edition you get a bunch of items that is designed to make you think you are getting a good deal for a hundred bucks.... That would be all well and good if the game you where buying with the balls of steel edition did not suck hard. this game is a labor of love that should not have been released in the current state that it is in. This may have had a 12 year development time but they should have just scrapped it and started over.
