Heroes come & go, but a king reigns forever

Duke Nukem is one of the biggest and most recognizable brands in gaming history. irreverent, un-PC, and uber-macho, Duke Nukem is the perfect antidote to the overdose of today's clichéd gaming archetypes. The game's cocktail of alien invasion, busty babes, bawdy comedy and big guns never gets old. The highly anticipated Duke Nukem Forever is a celebration of what video games are really about: an out loud good time!

The game is huge. With hours and hours of over-the-top single player action, and a range of bodacious multiplayer modes like Duke Match, Capture the Babe and Hail to the king, players can rest assured knowing that the fun will last.
  • Suitable for 18 years and over. Not for sale to persons under age 18. By purchasing this product, you declare that you are 18 years of age and over.

  • Ego, and then some: Step into the shoes of Duke Nukem, the steroidal One-Man Army who never fails and always gets the Babes
  • Bust a gut: Duke pulls no punches. He does and says the things you are thinking. Duke's constant stream of hilarious one-liners throughout the game will have gamers rolling
  • World interactivity: Spend as much time as you want shooting hoops, lifting weights, playing pinball, pool, air hockey, and slots. - even the urinals are interactive
  • Scale & variety: This game has it all - packed with explosive FPS action, outlandish settings, vehicle driving, and puzzle solving - gamers will never tire of the endless FUN
  • Multiplayer like no other: Duke re-envisions classic modes of play in his own hilarious and humiliating way. Shrink your opponent and squash him with your foot. Freeze and shatter him. Attach explosives to his back. Roll a pipe bomb between his legs, or just frag him old-fashioned with a rocket

 The king is back

| | See all ManWithHairOnFace's reviews (1)

To start this off, it is a very common misconception that the currently released version of this game is 12-14 years old. The current build is somewhere in the area of 3-4 years at most. Everything in the time before is development starting over from scratch.
Anyhoooo...

I'm not used to making reviews, but after seeing a completely unfair and misinformed 1-star review on here, I knew I had to give it a shot and voice what I've seen. I'll do my best without giving much away!

Graphics/animations:
Now, I've heard some graphics fanatics complain about DNF's look. Of course, this game isn't Crysis, but by NO means does it look bad. Quite the opposite. And in fact, the level of detail in some areas may surprise you.
Also, the animations are really fantastic, especially during takedowns (punching alien overlords in the groin never gets old). And that's just the start.

Mechanics:
There have been some changes to the old Duke formula. Such as the replacement of a weapon wheel with a 2-weapon limit, and a regular melee attack instead of a mighty boot.
The weapon part had me kinda worried, but I assure whoever reads this, that after playing the game with this feature, I can't imagine it any other way. It fits well.
As for the mighty boot, it would be fun to have, but when you think about it, the animation would look kinda silly (running on one foot with another in the air?).

Story:
The basic premise here is that, the aliens from Duke 3D have returned, and they're here to kidnap our chicks (and turn our male population into a particular farm animal). I don't think I can go into more detail without spoiling anything but I will say this. Duke is back, and bigger than ever.
Jon St. John returns as the voice of Duke and you'll probably spend most of the time when you're playing the game trying to gasp for air from laughing so hard.

Gameplay:
The gameplay of DNF is probably the highlight. Throughout the game you'll have craploads of weapons to play around with, and even more enemies to fustigate. Playing around with the shrink ray is justloads of fun in itself.
The areas in the game are just fantastic. From western themed levels to entire casinos. Then there's always the possibility of getting shrinked. Giving you a completely different perspective of your surroundinds and enemies. Not to mention the adorable R/C car you get to drive around in!
Also, the thing that made Duke 3D unique is returning - MASSIVE interactivity. The list of everything you can interact with is so large that it would probably be easier to list everything it doesn't have. I literally spent at least 30 minutes at a pool table myself.

All that I've listed is just what I've collected from the singleplayer campaign, which is pretty damn long.
As for the multiplayer, I haven't gotten a chance to fully test it since the game is still rather fresh and there's hardly anyone to play against. But from my understanding, it offers just as much of wacky fun as the singleplayer. Personally, I can't wait to turn the shrink ray on someone I know and stomp his tiny ass.

Bottomline is, the game is good. It doesn't reflect 12-14 years of development as many have been expecting but what it does is give you an authentic Duke Nukem experience, one we've been lacking for years.
If you want to roll around in your chair laughing...get it.
If you like blowing the heads off of aliens...get it.
If you're looking for a game to keep you occupied for hours and hours...get it.

If you're a cynical jerk with no sense of humour...don't get it.

 Not good at all!

I thought this game was going to be superb, great idea and I couldnt wait for the release. Now after playing the game it is such a dissapointment. The graphics are terrible, not that different from previous Duke Nukem games to be honest. Its gets very repetitive, running and shooting and the gameplay just feels horrible. Multiplayer is unbelievable as well. Words cant even describe the lack of effort they put into multiplayer, its like they just added something in quickly at the end. If I were you I'd wait until the game is much cheaper, dont buy it at the price it is at the moment.

 Don't like it? then don't play it

Duke nukem forever is a duke nukem fans best dream it is brilliant it may not look like much when you compare it to crysis or halo or cod graphically (but it's not ment to duke is there counter part so to speak he's rude obnoicous Dam right sexist and just all things controversel and it make you laugh if you fail to laugh at the duke's antic's then you should see a humour doctor) for the big part this was a team of developers working from there homes I myself already can't wait for a sequel the person below me wrote a brilliant review of the game and for fans of the series all I can say is "come get some"

 ".GREAT GAME.."

Its not the greatest game ever but if your a big Duke Nukem fan you should be pleased, plenty of what you remember Duke being famous for, foul mouthed language, women, blowing up big monsters etc! Its been a long time since we have seen him on our screens so a new generation can get into Duke Nukem now! The graphics have improved big time and it has a few new things thrown in, worth picking up if you a big fan.

 Time to kick ass and chew bubblegum!

I know there have been many complaints about some of the aspects of the game, but seriously its AWESOME. One thing first, this game has not been made through all 12-14 years. There have been many set backs, delays and problems. This game has really been made in the last 3 or 4 years. Sure the graphics aren't the best ever and the combat and shooting system isn't COD but who cares.

You do not need great graphics to make a great game. Its all in the story, gameplay and character of the game, and this has character. Finally a fun game has been made, this industry has forgotten how to make a fun game. Instead of showing real life situations or a prediction of the future, Duke Nukem gives us fun, hilarious and brilliant gameplay.

Whether you get it at full price or wait a while it is up to you, but you can't afford to not play it.

The multiplayer is nowhere near as good as COD or Battlefield , so if your looking to play online with this I would seriously adivse not to buy this. But if your looking for unforgettable quotes, great humour and to have laid back fun then Duke Nukem Forever is for you.

I think this game is brilliant enough to get 5/5.
