Summary: Duke Nukem 3D was such a GREAT game and still one of my favorite first person shooters. This game is a decent game but took WAAAAAAAAY too long to come out and there is absolutely nothing special about it .
Summary: This game could have been much better. Try original thoughts , then actions when making a Duke game. This game will make someone hesitate on buying the next (if ?) episode. I remember playing DN-1 & all the rest...that's why I bought this one.
Summary: I know, that's what everyone's already said, but it's true. This is almost a visually upgraded version of the original games--and after we've seen the Doom, Quake and other contemporaries progress much further from their primitive roots, this is disappointing. Nostalgia, I guess, and that's about it.
Summary: It's pretty simple to review a game like Duke Nukem Forever. Honestly, the game is not good. It's not particularly good looking, controls are a little awkward, story is completely ridiculous, and it took 12 friggin' years to come out. I have to be honest, though, as the game is super fun and the laughs keep coming.; the game is full of classic low-brow Duke humor.
Excerpt: The hype from this game was huge. The 1st duke was AMAZING for its time and i thought that the sequel would live up to the hype it was given. the thing that is great in this game is the sound. the quirky duke sayings are still in there, and the music seems to play really nicely with the game play. without the sound, the game in my opinion would have gotten a 2/5 instead or 3. I cant really put my finger on what is missing from this game...
Excerpt: Dont take the Duke too seriously and you'll have a good time. Great gameplay, humour, graphics etc it is not.Its a thowback to an earlier year - a taste of nostalia for me... yes I'm old enuf to have played the original Duke and blushed at the ending - I had fun with this one, but there were alot of cheesy moments, pre pubescent humour ..
Summary: I too wonder what the hell took over 12 years to get this game out.. But I'm glad it finally did, just for the nostalgia of playing Duke again. Some of the one liners make me LOL, and I enjoy blasting up some Aliens old school style for a change... On the highest difficulty for the hell of it. $50 may be a bit steep for some on this on though..
Pros: -A humorous game, good for some simple mindless fun and lots of laugh (if you have a sense of humor).
, -Works great in Eyefinity (3 x 24" Monitors in Portrait Mode), didn't even have to set the resolution manually, just worked.
, -Graphics are Average, not bad, but not Crysis (wasn't expecting it to be). But runs great and smooth.
Cons: - Not particularily deep single player experience. (gasp: shocking)
, - Multiplayer experience is sooooo 1990s (gasp: shocking)
