Duke Nukem Forever
Third party DRM: SteamThis game requires a free Steam account to play.
Duke Nukem Forever is finally here! Put on your shades and prepare to step into the boots of Duke Nukem, whose legend has reached epic proportions in the years since his last adventure. The alien hordes are invading and only Duke can save the world. Pig cops, alien shrink rays and enormous alien bosses can’t stop our hero from accomplishing his goal: to save the world, save the babes and to be a bad-ass while doing it.
The King arrives with an arsenal of over-the-top weapons, non-stop action, and unprecedented levels of interactivity. This game puts the pedal to the metal and tongue firmly in cheek. Shoot hoops, lift weights, read adult magazines, draw crude messages on whiteboards or ogle the many hot women that occupy Duke’s life - that is if you can pull yourself away from destroying alien invaders. With hours and hours of over-the-top single player action, and a range of bodacious multiplayer modes, rest assured knowing the fun will last. Duke Nukem was and will forever be a gaming icon, and this is his legend.
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.
Scale & Variety: This game has it all; packed with explosive FPS action, outlandish settings, 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.

Duke Nukem Forever is a game that tries too hard to be relevant across too broad a time in gaming, with all of the jokes misses more than hits. The gunplay can be fun at times but many of the levels are poorly designed, drag on, and are repetitive. The multiplayer is fun (albeit buggy and unbalanced), but despite all of this, there is a certain charm to it. The game is hammy enough in most places to forgive the poor writing, and some of the extras are cool enough. Recommended only for open-minded fans of the series.

Okay, yeah, this game has a lot of flaws. There are noticable weird stuff like monsters ragdolling after being shot and stuff like that. And - yeah, it's cheesy as hell.
But the thing is - it's Duke Nukem. He is a badass, he has his trademark one-liners, he knows who he is. And it just feels good to be a badass. It feels good to be Duke Nukem, to just kill everything with some ridiculous guns. And what I like most about this game - is that it's not serious, and it knows it. God dammit, those aliens steal and impregnate our women - how the hell is that supposed to be serious?
And for this - I like this game. It kinda even feels like old Duke Nukem (well, compared to modern "military simulators"). Many people would disagree - but I enjoyed this game. It's great, and if you can ignore first 30 minutes of "what the hell?" - you may probably like it too.

If you are a HARDCORE Duke Nukem fan, then go right ahead and buy the game. If you are not, then this is not a good game for you. It is filled with the usual Duke Nukem stuff we come to expect, but it seems this time around it was more tasteless and offensive in a bad way than the usual cool factor we as fans picked up on in the previous games. Overall, avoid it if you are not a hardcore fan.

The return of Duke Nukem after 10 years was anticipated by many including me , but after playing this game I was disappointed , and i never beat it due to pure frustration with it, for many reasons.
at first the game starts out great with slow pacing introducing gameplay elements and mixing it up with bathroom humor and other funny stuff which was cool! I enjoyed the game's prologue and the first 2 sequences , but then the game starts to get repetitive and mundane , another downer is Duek's arsenal in this game , as it's limited to 2 weapons only and you have to swap to use other weapons , nobody wants the modern shooter logic in a Duke Nukem game, besides there aren't that many weapons to choose from anyway so you'll be forced to use stuff you don't like for a while before you find something new and realize that you don't like this one either,therer's your basic pump action shotgun , an assault rifle, a rail gun , a rocket launcher and a couple of alien weapons that aren't that different from the human ones, you can drink power drinks or bear to crank up your muscle strength and use your fists in a rampaging rage, but it's not that useful when your enemies are teleporting constantly or charging at you with one hit kills, so enemies are frustrating and not challenging, making you yank your hair out in the process, other annoying thing is platforming , and since the game is a first person shooter , it feels a bit clunky as it's not well implemented, as you'll be falling to your death or back tracking to find the couch you first jumped off when you're shrunk (yes literally) to repeat a series of platforming jumps just to fall again due to the in accurate controls. some of good qualities of the game is some of it's humor , I wont ruin any jokes for you in case you want to try it out , but it's what you'd expect from Duke himself, the voice acting is great as Duke performance is awesome , music tracks are great as you hear Duke's them in rock music, small sections of the game are creative and I wish there were more of them to make it at least worth playing , but if you're a huge Duke Nukem Fan I know you already bought this game, but if you're not , save your money for the next one (hopefully they'll make up for this game).
A Game for the True Fansemptyhaven | Nov. 9, 2014 | See all emptyhaven's reviews »
Duke Nukem Forever is a game that came out when the Duke Nukem franchise was all but forgotten. With the last of its memories still left etched into the fanbase, we held on and accepted it. One last run for the nostalgia. But we eventually learned that nostalgia is a weird and unfortunate thing.
This game's jokes and one-liners are dated, and we cringe in the same way teenagers cringe when their grandparents try to act cool by rapping to Nicki Minaj, or singing along to a 1D song. The whole beefy, manly-man, misogynist act might have worked well to sell in the 90s, but the action star of old has gotten... well, old!
Not to say that this game is horrible. I think it's still good. But it's the type of game that only fans of the series will truly enjoy. It's the same guy we've played as for years, and he hasn't changed. And we laugh and we shout. But in the end, we know that it's over and it's time to move on to other games.
This is a good game to remember Duke Nukem by. And it should definitely be the last Duke Nukem game to remember him by. I don't think I can take another one, to be honest.
