Duke Nukem Forever Hands-on Preview: Kick Ass and Chew Bubblegum
(continued from previous page) ...the neon-soaked city is populated with Duke’s burly visage, which is definitely appropriate for "the world’s greatest hero." I also quite liked Forever’s color palette; the game eschews the grays and browns of most modern first-person shooters in favor of a range of yellows, reds, greens, and blues.
Though I didn’t get to try them out, four multiplayer modes will be available in Duke Nukem Forever: classic Dukematch (Deathmatch), Team Dukematch, Capture the Babe (Flag), and King of the Hill. Meanwhile, the single-player campaign is supposedly a meaty 15 hours or longer, so there’s definitely plenty of content available on that front.
Duke Nukem Forever is not for gamers with delicate sensibilities. It’s extremely violent, sexist, and crude. If that’s your thing, though, it works here. I dislike games where developers toss in tasteless expletives that distract from the main story arc, but here, that’s the entire point. If you want to spend some quality time kicking ass and chewing bubble gum, you should check out Duke Nukem Forever when it hits store shelves in the U.S. on June 14, 2011.
