Duke Nukem Forever: The Doctor Who Cloned Me

  • 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

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.

  • Excerpt: The development of Duke Nukem Forever has been anything but easy. The original development team, part of 3D Realms, had been working on the game since 1997, suffering budget cuts and staff reductions before eventually being disbanded in 2009. A handful of the original team continued working on the project, forming Triptych Games and with the assistance of both Gearbox Software and Piranha Games, the game finally reached completion.

  • Summary: The Duke should have remained vaporware.
  • Pros: The alien enemies remind you of the original Duke 3D; the game only takes five hours to beat.
  • Cons: Incredibly mundane gameplay; bland, unattractive graphics; unsatisfying gunplay, driving and platforming; stuttering frame rates; excessive and overly long load times; a sense of humor that just isn't funny; a trainwreck over a decade in the making.

  • Conclusion: Duke Nukem Forever is a strange enough novelty all on its own, but when all is said and done, it is a vastly aged shooter that is left trailing in the dust of its modern contemporaries. Beyond any unspoken drama that led to over a decade’s worth of unfinished work coming to an unceremonious and curious conclusion, the end result is a game that ultimately fails to justify its existence as a full-price offering for a variety of reasons.

Review: Duke Nukem Forever

  • Conclusion: All in all, Duke Nukem Forever is not the Duke game we’ve been hoping for all these years. It feels like a hodgepodge of previous titles stitched together to make a living game. Unfortunately, there are so many issues with this game that it makes playing it hard to bear. Duke is a classic video game character and reviving him for a modern audience was a great idea, but this wasn’t the game that should have done it.

  • Conclusion: We all wanted this game to be good, and perhaps that sense of expectation has proven to be too much. But even then you can look at the shabby graphics, woeful humour and dull gameplay and realise that this game would have been underwhelming whenever it was released. A real shame.

  • Conclusion: This is a sub-par budget title that’s pretending to be an AAA game.  Shame on Gearbox for wanting their name on this stinking pile of crap!  If you do enjoy playing terrible games, please rent instead of purchasing as the publisher doesn’t deserve a reward for this.  The campaign takes about 8 hours to complete on the regular difficulty and I’m betting the number of people playing multiplayer is going to drop dramatically over the next 90 days.
