Summary: Fun game which remains true to the "flavor" of DN3D. As is true with most sequels, I thought I was better at it than I actually am, so it was a bit of a struggle to get back in the groove. Also the keys are different, and that required some getting used to. But the graphics are great, the physics are good, the story line is as goofy as expected, and there's adequate mayhem and bad jokes. All in all, a fun romp.
I actually like this game....fun but a little too linear

Summary: First off, i'm a huge fan of "Duke Nukem 3D" and I play that game almost all the time and is one of my all-time favorites. I've been reading and hearing about all sorts of news about the development of "Duke Nukem Forever", and I can see where some of the problems do show up, but at the same time, I don't believe this game should've gotten all of the unjust bashing that it has received since launch day.
Summary: As a fan of the Duke Nukem franchise, I was as frustrated as the next guy by the nearly decade long wait. I am now 24, and I was about 13 or so when I first played Duke Nukem 3D. Babes, bullets, and a hero that spewed witty one-liners almost as often as he spewed bullets from his ever handy array of weapons, that summarizes the Duke Nukem experience.
Summary: First I need to state that I am in no way saying this game is the best game for today. However, the reviews I have been reading have been far too critical. Yes the graphics are from 2 years ago, yes it could have been better and yes this game is extremely fun. For all of you that think it could have been better, yes it could have been. But would you like it to sit in game limbo longer and most likely get canceled again?
Excerpt: This game is everything you would expect from a Duke Nukem game. A game that was 12 years in the making certainly shows its age in the basic nature of graphics (don't expect the latest cutting edge visuals) but Duke's quips more than make up for them. Ego driven and sexist he may be he remains butt-kickingly good in the action stakes. It's not going to stretch your mental capacity following the story line but how hard can evil aliens invade -> kill them be?
Excerpt: You can't beat the classic Duke Nukem from about 11 years back; nothing will ever compare. But Duke Nukem Forever at least has a go at trying to relive the old days of Duke gaming. It's not the greatest game to hit the shelves recently but it's still a fun game to play. The game still contains its corny; rude sense of humour with sexual jokes and perverse commentaries which helps crack a smile here and there.
Excerpt: Although this game includes toilet and sexist humour, and has a beginning section that was made years ago, Duke Nukem fans will know who they are and not be disappointed by this game. If you don't like strippers, action movie-one liners, and stereotypical macho men who save the world (and the babes), beware, otherwise if you want to be the first ever 3D Action Game hero again today and you don't mind graphics from a couple of years ago, then shoot some aliens and score...
Pros: Easy To Learn, Gameplay, Mature, Voice Acting
Summary: Folks who haven't played the original Duke Nukem 3D game more than a decade ago, probably can't appreciate this sequel to the fullest. In my opinion overall an enjoyable game Duke-style. Therefore I say... Kick A$$ and chew Bubblegum!
Summary: I think peole are expecting something this game was not, and probably not supposed to be. Duke was the first FPS I played and I thought it was great then, and reliving the experience is great fun. I enjoy it greatly so far and figure I will like it to the end. Though I may be bias, as I rarely play anything too new (starcraft 2 and COD:WAW are probably the latest I have), I play old games mostly and really am only rating this on it be worth the nostalgia and the fun I...
, -It's got ... Duke Nukem!
Cons: Nothing much yet, but i'm not getting too deep into everything.
