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.

Sure, DNF was in development hell for over 10 years, but it is still a fun shooter at its core and does provide some of that infamous Duke Nukem humor that we've grown up with. The world is once more in danger from an alien invasion and it is up to the Duke himself to stop these alien scumbags from kidnapping all the chicks and dominate the world. And of course, Duke will have plenty of weapons to fight this threat and even at some points get shrunk to a very small size like in Duke Nukem 3D. There's also a single player DLC for the game that takes place directly after the ending of the main game and features the return of an old enemy of Duke. Too many gamers had too high expectations for the game and that is why it has been so hated by many, I personally had a lot of fun with it.

The game was never going to bowl one over with impressive graphics. It’s horribly dated and the developers tried to mask this by adding in pseudo-modern technology. The physics are a bit iffy too, and the animation almost laughable at times. The soundtrack is probably the game’s one saving grace, composed by the returning Lee Jackson who shared the music duties with Bobby Prince in the prequel. And to add to that the sound effects have some nice touches, such as the three beeps that accompany the detonation of a pipebomb, resembling the intro of Grabbag, the game’s legendary theme.
Duke 3D was known for Duke’s awesome one liners, but here in DNF, much like Manhattan Project, the voiceovers of both the character and NPCs sound rather corny with horribly dated references – a direct result of poor writing. And a lot of what made Duke 3D fun, like non-linear level design, and lots of gadgets like jetpacks and scuba gear, are mysteriously missing here, making for a largely linear campaign with only a few interesting bits on offer.
Duke 3D was also known for its interactivity, and DNF has this in spades too, from playing games in one of the clubs on the strip, to picking up objects, and generally just fiddling around to prolong game time. But DNF also quite cleverly combines this with the ego bar introduced in Manhattan Project, so certain actions boost the ego bar (health), such as lifting weights or a few other more adult-themed actions that I probably shouldn’t mention here.
In the end, DNF doesn’t really know which audience it’s appealing to. On one hand it cannot hope to entice the younger generation, and on the other it doesn’t live up to its original purpose as a worthy sequel to DN3D which would endear fans of the series. One can only think that if it had been released years ago, while it was still under the control of 3D Realms that it might have turned out better, but time and too much fiddling around ruined what might have been a great game. Instead, it’s merely mediocre.

I remember back when they first announced that the game was comming, going to the local retailer to see if it had come out yet. The responce was always the same: "Not yet. Maybe next month." i have loved Duke 3d and this promised. When I played it it reminded me so much of Duke3d. I believe it was a pretty good sequel to the original, It was funny and I had so much fun playing it. I actually never got to the online part but I felt the story was good. The graphics are pretty decent if you dont compare it to other AAA titles out there.

I'm an old pc gamer. I'm from Doom, Duke Nukem era. Duke Nukem was one of my favorite FPS. Now here is polished version of Duke Nukem. If you are looking for something new from the past Duke game, then this is not for you. The game play has not changed much from the old one. but You can still find something makes Duke what it is. I mean badass macho protagonist is still there, and sexual humors, and pig cops.. oh I almost forgot the stripers. and tits.. which I really enjoyed xD. And multiplayer is still active. You can customize your Duke little bit. it's kind of cute.
Conclusion Grahpics not bad even some parts of the stages are beautiful, Gameplay cool enough, Multiplayer is still fun and active.
Well.. I wrote this much but what I really want to say is, If you like boobies, BUY NOW.
