MediocreDuke Nukem games were great a long time ago. And they still are. This game is only good on the other systems. Though this one is terrible! The controls are atrocious and the graphics stink. And I thought it was supposed to be first person shooter. Sadly this game stinks and I had high expectations. So, if you are going to buy this game buy it on the X Box 360, or PC. Just not on the DS. Out of ten I'd have to give this game a four. Though I am not going to lie I tried really hard to like it. But... this game just didn't work out for me. I am disappointed in this game because Duke Nukem was usually better then this. Even if it was on the DS. Critical Mass is a disgrace and don't bother purchasing it. If you want to buy one as I said, get the Duke Nukem Forever on the other consoles. Though as I said I am disappointed in this game and the company that made it.

GOOD GAME!!!!When I first got this game, I didn't know what to expect. I didn't really like the games that Deep Silver put out so I thought I wasn't going to like this one,It turns out I was very wrong. This game is amazing! It is full of action and lots of "Pigs" to kill! The gameplay is awesome, Saving babes is awesome and having loads of unlockables is awesome too! My only problem with this game, is this graphics. The graphics are good but they don't compare to the graphics like Dementium:The Ward. There are a lot of people who don't like this game, DON'T BELIVE THEM BUY THIS GAME NOW!!!!

GOOD game that COULD have been EXCELLENT!This game brings back memories from the old-time Duke Nukem and that is why I purchased it.
The story line is pretty good and the different weapons are great. Duke has his flawless personality in this game and saving "Babe" and killing "Pigs" is always fun.
For being a DS game, one cannot expect to have excellent graphics and such although the graphics in this game were pretty good compared to other DS games I have played. I also think that the game could have been longer. I flew through the game with ease on all difficulty levels. Also, I think if this would have been created for the 3DS then it would have meet the "Excellent" criteria.
This is not a game that I play on trading in since it does bring back memories and therefore, I would recommend this game to others with fond memories of the Duke.
