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: Let me start out by saying this game reminds me slightly of the classic Duke Nukem 3D. I say slight because the game is a shell of what that game was. I love the Duke franchise, and really, really, really wanted to like this game. I am glad I only shelled out 10 bucks for this. It will be fun for the 10 dollars, but I couldnt see spending more on it. Be careful too, this game was clearly ported from the xbox version.
Summary: I posted this same review for the BoS edition, which is the one I almost bought, thought I'd repost it here as there are people that just want the game, not the BoS edition. I had the opportunity to play Duke Nukem Forever before it was released, and I played up to the levels after the "Queen Bitch" level, where you are outside, high up in the air climbing over the alien growth.
Summary: The only reason to buy this game is to give closure for Duke Nukem. Duke Nukem: Forever is not a good game. It is a bad game with an infamous development cycle that somehow was released. If it was "Generic Alien Shooter", it would quickly be forgotten. I can't say anything positive about this game when compared to its predecessor Duke3D, the game just feels regressive in each aspect except for graphics. What's worse it is that the graphics aren't that great.
Excerpt: Oh for crying out loud. Released back in 1996, Duke Nukem 3D was a superb FPS, with visuals that were hugely impressive for the time. It relied on the BUILD engine, which allowed for the creation of more realistic environments, as well as the ability to jump and to look up and down, all of which allowed for new and exciting gameplay possibilities that were explored to the full in the game's superbly well-designed levels.
