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: I bought this for my husband. The little statue thingy is cute (I told him he should use it as a profile picture because he doesn't post any of himself. Joke of course because I know that violates copyright). I guess he likes the game. He's quick to complain when he doesn't like a game and he hasn't said anything about it so....
Summary: I've been putting off doing these reviews because I just never feel qualified to do so. I still haven't even finished this game since I purchased it, but that's my problem--not the game's. The game itself: It's a fun little shooter. Very formulaic. As far as I've gotten in the game, I haven't found anything that really massively sets it apart from other shooters. The same old sophomoric Duke Nukem humor is there, all the weapons are there, objectification of women, etc.
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.
Summary: This game comes up with everything which I expect from a good ego-shooter: Versatile physical interaction with the environment, good graphics and animations, excellent design in all departments. Plus a large fund of talk, including both the mandatory Duke comments and what other characters have to say (They are often as fancy as Duke himself.) And gimmicks like picking up rats from the ground (or even a turd from a toilet, ugh).
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.
