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. The real reason, however, is to really sit back and take stock of what has happened to a game that had so much promise, but from what has been written in the initial reviews has delivered so little.

Duke Nukem Forever review

24 June 2012
  • Pros: Gunning down aliens is still fun, Shrinking, driving are neat changes of pace, Improves noticeably toward the end of the game
  • Cons: Visual glitches, blurry textures are common, Infuriatingly long loads between levels, deaths, Action punctuated with lots of dull stretches

Duke Nukem Forever: The Doctor Who Cloned Me

Total Xbox
3 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Consciously or not, the whopping 3.2GB download for this downloadable Duke Nukem Forever add-on creates a high expectation. For all of that bandwidth, this had better be good , we thought. So when Doctor picked up right after the events of the main game, with Duke strapped into a torture chair in a clever parody of Call of Duty: Black Ops , we were optimistic.
  • Pros: + Begins with a funny
  • Cons: ? When will Gearbox take a shot at this franchise themselves?

Duke Nukem Forever: The Doctor Who Cloned Me

1 January 2012
  • Excerpt: I think I was like the only person in the world who got a huge kick out of playing Duke Nukem Forever. Sure, the game was rough around the edges or as some would say dated and the main character was an ass but there was still something endearing about playing the world's awesomest action hero and thankfully I can now get my fix with the latest DLC for Duke Nukem Forever, The Doctor Who Cloned Me!

Duke Nukem Forever

High-Def Digest
21 December 2011
  • Summary: It’s been a long, winding road, for Duke Nukem Forever. Beginning development approximately a decade and a half ago, it was thought that the much talked-about first-person shooter was never going to see the light of day. In fact, the project became a running joke in the video game industry, as rumors constantly swirled about new developments regarding its status.

Review: Duke Nukem Forever (Microsoft Xbox 360)

Diehard GameFAN
13 October 2011
  • Summary: : The description I provided to former contributor Adam Powell, when asked how the game was, is “About as good as a game that’s been in development for fifteen years can possibly be”Â�, and I think that’s a pretty fair assessment of Duke Nukem Forever as a whole. There’s not a lot more to be said about the game beyond that, actually; while it looks fine sometimes, sounds fine most of the time, and plays well in the FPS sections, the game is juvenile, often confused about...

Adult parody awash in sexism, drugs, and gory killing.

Common Sense Media
11 October 2011
  • Summary: Parents need to know that Duke Nukem Forever is a first-person shooter with an excess of bloody violence, sexual imagery, profanity, and player-controlled substance abuse. A drunken, foul-mouthed Duke will tear aliens to crimson shreds in one scene, then collect sex toys and prophylactics for a lap dance engagement in the next.

Duke Nukem Forever

True achievements
29 September 2011
  • Conclusion: As far as multiplayer goes, I find it enjoyable, because I dont have to be hell-bent on getting achievements, and the entire multiplayer rank system is boostable. plus I personally think the rewards are way cooler than just having gun upgrades. Graphics? Amazing for using Unreal Engine 2. 'Nuff said. Overall, it was what I thought it would be. 9.5/10 from me.

Duke Nukem Forever Review

18 September 2011
  • 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. With the complete product finally in my 24-year-old hands, a celebratory occasion in itself after such a tumultuous development, I can safety say that such anticipation was completely and entirely...

Duke Nukem Forever Review

23 August 2011
  • Excerpt: With such a long incubation time, Duke Nukem Forever ran the risk of looking, sounding and feeling dated. By and large it manages to avoid those pitfalls, but the game’s not without fault. In a weird way it seems as though all those developers were so scared about being outdated that they overcompensated by including every possible gameplay mechanic and cliche that ever appeared during that 15-year window.
