Summary: Retread of old humor. I waited 10+ years for these? To top it off, I mis-clicked and got two. Gave one to my friend and he asked me, "Why do you hate me so much?" The Activation PID was a pain in the .. .well.. you know. I wrote support and after 14 days or so I got a response that asked for more info on my problem. What part of "The PID does not work" can confuse someone?
Summary: Fun, but really hard using a keyboard and mouse. Not as good as I'd hoped since I loved the earlier Duke. Only 2 weapons can be carried at a time which complicates things a bit. Still, for some cheap fun it is worth it.
Summary: What's not to love when it comes to the Duke? I've played every Duke Nukem game that's come out and enjoyed all of them. In fact my first Duke game was in 2D. This one is certainly not a disappointment. It's a delight and I'm happy to own it. If you're a Steam subscriber, Steam will automatically integrate the game into your library when you install from CD, and update it as needed.
If you lookin' for rontchy eye-candy, then get GTA 5, SR or Watch dogs, anything but this.

Summary: l loved DN 3D as a child. It was games like this along with Doom and Quake that mortified our minds with gore, porn, death and god-like weapons. That's pretty tough to top that. But you'd think that with the graphics today, they could. But sadly no. It's like the opposite. Almost as if the developers in the 90's died-off and these next gen writers/designers never even bothered to play DN 3D. People need to know, graphics are NOT THE HART OR SOUL OF A GAME!
Summary: This game is absolutely horrible, they spent 15 years making the game, it did not live up to all the hype. They over advertised this game. The 2D versions were much better than this game. This game had cheesy lines, crappy weapons, boring levels, it was repetitive. Stay away from buying this.
Summary: This game comes with a lot of baggage. If it were released as a different franchise, I think people wouldn't be nearly so critical of it. It's a solid game. Whether or not it appeals to you is another question. It's a Duke game. I am perplexed at how many popular franchises have rabid fans because of the "story". Most shooters don't rely on story much at all and the in-game plot is always lacking for me, regardless of the game. Duke Forever is really no exception.
