Summary: Even though this game took forever to release and isn't state of the art anything towards first person shooters it's still some fun. Pricing for it now is good and the extra incentives that came along with the Ball Of Steel Edition make this a worthwhile purchase.
Summary: Ok, most will ask "why review twice" well here is the deal. My first review wasnt a great one, it wasnt a fair one. I was mad and let down so I voiced my rage. The game itself still isnt good but its duke nukem. I went back and played the first few games and they really arent great either. But I grew up playing them and love them. When they first released this game I wanted it to be so much more than it ever could have been. Not the games fault but mine.
Summary: Glad I waited for this one to drop in price. First you must figure out what viewing ratio to use to even get this to run. If you just have minimum specs. for this game, don't buy it. It will run like cr@p.
Summary: There are two major gripes I have about this game. First, Duke Nukem was a PC game first and foremost but this iteration suffers from a serious case of consolitis. I don't know if it's a console port but the mouse controls have the same wishy-washy movement all console ports have so I assume the answer is yes. Second, the game is just not that clever and the jokes are really bad. I mean everyone knows Duke Nukem 3D had raunchy humor.
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.

Summary: The game is great, and has an over all great game play and story line but how ever it is better played on a console like Xbox 360 or PS3, due to the minor pixelation of the graphics and old school game engine used for pc version. However far better items (gifts) should have come with the game in the balls of steel edition, like a replica of Dukes Desert Eagle guns non functional, or at least bigger deck of cards and far better quallity poker chips. Other wise ok.
Worth playing for nostalgia or if you're 12 years old.

Summary: I would suggest holding off until this game drops into the $20 or less bin, unless you can't wait a few more months. This game could stand a little more polish in general visuals and game play. The nudity and humor is not suitable for the younger audiences, but the style of the jokes are best suiting for a 12 year old boy. This game is worth playing if you're 12 years old or if you're a big fan of Duke Nukem 3D.
