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.
Not that bad for a game that was delayed countless timesspycid | June 17, 2013 | See all spycid's reviews »
Surely the gameplay, graphics can't match up to today's games, but I kinda liked the gameplay. There was variety in it and the puzzles were easy but still I liked them. Worth a try for Duke fan. This game is not a train wreck as people say, there are far more worse game than this which had a lot of hope which wasn't fulfilled.
Mmmm...Duke is back?kalil | June 7, 2013 | See all kalil's reviews »
The story is simple. Duke is the king of las vegas, aunts have all you want and spends his days doing nothing. Until the aliens come to take revenge on duke. After it's all shot here and shot there.
Gameplay: First, it is an attempt to mescla between CoD and Duke nukem. In what sense? It is action without more, a few puzzles, no card to enter any hidden room. You can only carry two weapons (from when duke can not take all and for having weapons? The weapons are the same for Duke 3D. I'm not saying take them out, but agregen new ones? System life? No kit. The life bar turned into a bar of ego. cures you being out of the line of fire (another attempt Cod).
Graphics: after 3 changes motorres graphics were very bad. Misuse of the Unreal engine 3.
Sound: Translations appalling. The voice is more of a gorilla than Duke. The weapon sounds do not convince me at all. The noises they make to teleport bugs are incredible and help to know where they are.
Innovation: lack. It took little new to this game, are the characteristics of CoD as to carry 2 weapons. Anyway, nothing new.

When Duke 3D arrived, it was a landmark of a game. It was one of the first fps games that let you aim up and down (huge at the time), it was crude and hilarious (Hmmm... don't have time to play with myself..), it was the most graphically impressive game of the time, it was hilarious and brutal, it came bundled with awesome map building and modding tools, it had a jetpack for midair firefights, one of the forefronts of multiplayer games, the list goes on. Basically if you weren't old enough to appreciate it at the time, you probably never will. That's not an insult, it's just a fact... technology at the time was just becoming impressive and Duke just made everyone crap their pants at how cool it was when it came out. Is Duke 3D still cool? Absolutely, but I can't blame someone in their teens being unimpressed by it today. It's like expecting someone who grew up with an iPhone to be impressed with what VGA monitors brought to the table (yes... I grew up with monochrome monitors...). Duke was the Guns and Roses of the gaming comunity, and we all hope he comes back with all the swagger and glory he had back then. The good news is that since he's a video game, that's totally possible, and I hope it's as awesome as we have all hoped. And as the trailer states... "after 12 f*#$ing years it better be!"
Could have been betterrossa14 | June 2, 2013 | See all rossa14's reviews »
This game had been under development for quite some time before it finally saw the light of day, 15 years in fact. After all that time you can understand gearbox wanting to get it out the door so it can make some money; unfortunately, boring gameplay and a story that is nothing to write home about makes this one game that can be OK if picked up cheap, but not at full price.
Maybe it would been better received 10-15 years ago when the expectation of gamers was different? We will sadly never know.

Well there's little to say about this really. From the community's point of view I'd say that this is a bitter disappointment as the game fails on nearly ever level where it should succeed. However expectations aside this isn't that bad a game, the storyline is weak, the gameplay is simple and the dialogue is as cheesy as it gets, but overall that makes a decent experience. Worth a try if its on sale or if like me you can get it in a bundle offer, but don't go out your way to try it.
