About Duke Nukem Forever

The babe-lovin', cigar-smoking, beer-chugging (and oft-delayed) Duke Nukem once again journeys to save the Earth from hordes of invading aliens. Pig cops, alien shrink rays and enormous alien bosses won't stop Duke from accomplishing his goals: save the world and get the girls. Along the way, expect to shoot hoops, lift weights, read adult magazines, draw crude messages on whiteboards - oh, and kick ass and take names, of course. After all, those are two of Duke's better skills.

Summary

The aging loud-mouth hero does not take himself too seriously in Duke Nukem Forever, and neither should you. Overall, nostalgia simply is not enough to save this bland and repetitive shooter.

We like

  • The occasional enjoyable action sequence
  • The shrinking segments add a nice twist to the proceedings
  • The nostalgia factor

We dislike

  • The bland and repetitive levels
  • The poor platforming sections and frustrating load times
  • The subpar visuals and audio

Chances are extremely likely that people are reluctant to accept something new or logical, like finally getting a normal 9-5 job,...
