Duke Nukem Forever – Review (PS3, 360) – Better Late Than Never!
7 September 2013
Excerpt: I was initially thinking of publishing this review 12 years down line as an ode to the Duke Nukem game that has finally emerged. This, as you can appreciate, would probably not appease 2K Games or Gearbox although I hope that they would find the humour in it.
Excerpt: I think I was like the only person in the world who got a huge kick out of playing Duke Nukem Forever.

Graphics? Amazing for using Unreal Engine 2.
Excerpt: So, after 14 years in development, Duke Nukem Forever actually happened. I was a virginal, bespotted 11-year-old when the game was originally announced in 1997, desperately eager for a continuation of the off-colour humour and explorative design I adored in Duke Nukem 3D.
