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.

I loved the past Duke Nukems and was really excited for this one, especially after being in the works for over a decade, but was disappointed. I was able to beat the game in a few hours and it didn't hold much replay value. I went over to try out the multiplayer, hoping it would have some redeeming qualities, but even that fell flat and I was bored of it within the first day. Would not recommend this game.

Duke Nukem is like an elderly celebrity: he is getting on in his years and tries emulating what all the cool kids are doing without understanding how to do it successfully, all the while ignoring what made him cool back in his day, even though if he did it it would make him cool again. In previous Duke Nukem games, you could carry all of your weapons and needed to pick up health. In Duke Nukem Forever you can only carry two and have regenerating health. This is not what made Duke Nukem famous to begin with, and seeing this in a Duke Nukem game is jarring. Add to the fact that the story, something that Duke Nukem was never known for anyway, is bad, even compared to previous Duke Nukem games, and that the jokes all fall flat, especially the ones that are in bad taste, and you get a disappointing package, if not a very bad one. Duke Nukem Forever is not the game it should have been. It is an insult to the Duke Nukem name but is ironically only not regarded as a worse game because of the Duke Nukem name.

If you are a hardcore fan of this game it is for you. If you are not, then it might be a generic game with little to no real value because of the content involved. Granted this wasnt a BAD game, it just does not bring anything to the table. Pick it up if you love the Duke and are desperate.

As a kid I would avidly play Duke Nukem 3D as soon as I got home from school. When the announcement was made some years back that a new game would be released I was overjoyed. Only recently getting back into gaming, one of the first titles I picked up, here on GMG, was Duke Nukem Forever...and man what I disappointment. Maybe it's the nostalgia, maybe it's the level of game between the two that has changed, but there was nothing really captivating with this version. I thought something was strange, so I went back to play the previous version and enjoyed it all over again. Guess you can't beat some of the classics.

Duke Nukem Forever isn't anything astronomical, and isn't nearly what it should be after over a decade of development, but it's still a fun game. It's got the typical Duke Nukem attitude. Over the top, drowning I'm puns and references, huge aliens, and crazy action filled with massively destructive weaponry and cheesy one-liners. It's still Duke and it's still fun. Get over it.
