Summary: "This isn't as bad as people are saying.."-Anonymous gamers. You're right its not. It's worse. Guns check, babes check, awesome gunplay??? As an old-school gamer, I have alot of love for Duke. Here's why: Blasting baddies and saving babes. Don't shrink Duke and have him riding in a RC car. Next where's the arsenal?? In other DK games you could carry more than 2 weapons. What else, oh yeah, world interactivity. Wow, you can flush toilets now.
Summary: (out of five) Graphics----II Poor frame rate and textures make this game look like it's still stuck in the 90's. Sound-------IIII Good weapon effects and one-liners round out a decent sound package. Controls----II Loose but not horrific controls are still amongst the worst out there. Blast Force-II This game just isn't that fun to play. Overall-----II Bad graphics, a terrible story mode, and marginal multiplayer will have you quitting sooner, rather than later.
Summary: I was a big fan of Duke Nukem 3D and followed the madness that surrounded this game's development for 12+ years. I waited to buy it because I heard about the bad reviews and I generally don't pay $60 for a new game unless it's going to be worth it. I am incredibly glad I waited to buy this game for $10.
Summary: Duke Nukem was rude, crude, and socially unacceptable in the 90s. But at least he was a grown man. In this release, he's a 12 year old boy in a 'roid-ragin' bod. Nevermind the clunky mechanics. Nevermind the gimicky camera shots and nausea inducing panning. Nevermind that the end boss fight is the lamest thing ever or that the one-liners only come when you make them yourself. Nevermind any of that.

Summary: I tried to ignore most reviews I'd seen regarding this game and just enjoy it for what it ended up being. I was hoping this was one of those cases where the game got a bad rap because of overhyping, etc. And, while this game isn't broken or overly terrible, it just isn't memorable of interesting. The controls aren't the greatest, the sound gets very old very fast, and the landscapes feel realized but void of anything interesting.
Summary: Let me start off by saying that this is one of those games that had been in development for so long that no one was quite sure what would happen. This game also went into a momentary state of being thought dead as 3d Realms ran out of money. It was through the brave move of Gearbox that this game came into being. In this game you will be playing the part of Duke Nukem, your super badass, monster ass kicking, roid raging hero stuck in the nineties.
Summary: Let's face it - this game has been hyped for a long, long time - so it did start out with some pretty big shoes to fill. It fails miserably in my opinion. I was a huge Duke Nukem fan back in college when it first came out. My friends and I spent hours in front of our old 486 laughing our heads off at the over the top violence, crazy one liners and overall entertainment. You never knew what was next - there was just nothing like it before.
