The King is Back!
Cocked, loaded and ready for action, Duke delivers epic ass-kicking, massive weapons, giant explosions and pure unadulterated fun!
Put on your shades and step into the boots of Duke Nukem. The alien hordes are invading and only Duke can save the world. Pig cops, alien shrink rays and enormous alien bosses can’t stop this epic 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. With hours and hours of action, and a range of bodacious multiplayer modes, rest assured knowing the fun goes on and on.
Did the Alien bastards not learn their lesson the first time? Duke has been on hiatus for some time now, kicking back and franchising himself on the fame he gained from saving Earth from the first invasion. The Aliens have returned to Earth yet again, messing up Duke’s sweet routine of dirty leisure habits.
The Alien invaders are stealing Earth’s women, especially the hot ones! And they drank Duke’s beer. This. Won’t. Stand. As Duke battles his way through waves of aliens, the once beautiful gambling haven and Duke Nukem franchise chains are crumbling before his eyes. Time to bring the pain!
Bust a Gut: Duke pulls no punches. Duke’s constant stream of hilarious one-liners throughout the game make this an out loud good time.
World Interactivity: Spend as much time as you want shooting hoops, lifting weights, playing pinball, pool, air hockey, and slots.
Scale & Variety: Packed with explosive FPS action, outlandish settings, driving, and puzzle solving — gamers will never tire of the endless FUN.
Multiplayer Like No Other: Classic modes are re-made with a Duke twist. Shrink, squash, freeze and shatter your opponents, or just frag them with a rocket.

I can not deny that it was a pleasure to reintroduce Duke, a character as controversial as it was beloved among the gamer community. I admit I had fun, but that does not exclude the game from all the bad that has, and that is a lot: technical failures, outdated graphics, imprecise control and a long etcetera. The final balance is negative, since the good intentions (if any) were greatly overshadowed by the mentioned shortcomings. Even the most fanatical of Duke would think twice before spending $ 60 for a game like this.
Having waiting more than 10 years for this title, after my daily binge of Duke Nukem 3D in the 90s, Duke Nukem forever didn't really live up to the hype prior to its release. Yes, there are quite a few tie-ins to the original, with quite a few elements thrown in as an ode to the success of Duke Nukem 3D, but, ultimately, the game lacked the same level of appeal that made it so great. Duke Nukem Forever takes itself way too seriously as a game, something that it's predecessor did not, which makes players care too much about the storyline, which is quite thin on the whole. The end result is an average game, especially if you remove the elements of nostalgia from the previous titles, and critique the game as a standalone.
Duke Nukem Forever is one of the worst games I've ever played in my life, the graphics are very bad and leave much to be desired, and also the controls do not work properly. The graphics are very weak and it seemed like they were made a decade before. The level of detail is bad and textures are also extremely bad leaving the game with a horrible look. But for people who do not care about high quality graphics this game will surely be a good option. The game's gameplay is poorly, the controls respond bad to the majority commands and the interaction with the scenario is also bad leaving the game even more annoying. I don´t recommend this game to anyone who is looking for an action game , and especially for those who have played the old Duke Nukem that despite already being old are much better .
This is the long-awaited sequel to Duke Nukem 3D. It took over fourteen years to get out the door, and shifted between multiple developers and publishers, and several game engine changes, but eventually it was finally released. Duke is now the owner of his very own casino on the Las Vegas strip, and just as he is about to head from the penthouse downstairs to appear on the "Damn! ... It's Late Show" hosted by Johnny O'Lenoman, things are shaken up by the arrival of the same aliens that invaded earth several years ago in DN3D, and Duke has to saddle up and get back into the business of alien pest control, taking you all over Nevada, to places such as the Hoover Dam. Graphics/Technology: They aren’t bad, but the visuals are still dated. This game uses basically an enhanced Unreal Engine 2.0, even though some insist that most of it is proprietary. So when you keep in mind that Unreal Engine 3 is and indeed was around for a few years before this was even released, it was bound to be dated technologically. The loading times are painfully slow too, and the physics and animation in general are pretty terrible to be honest. In the first bits of the game I found the controls and overall feel of the game to be slack. Just plain bad. Sound: One thing that appeals to me is the soundtrack, which was composed by the returning Lee Jackson, who shared the soundtrack duties with the legendary Bobby Prince on Duke Nukem 3D. The voiceovers for the Duke Nukem character are once again provided by Jon St. John himself, although I have to say the dialogue is rather bad, with the one liners often lacking the same aggressive punch and cool vibe they had in DN3D, and not to mention the references are dated. One line that Duke says comes from Commando, from way back in 1985! I don’t think most of the gamers who will end up playing this were even born at that time. Gameplay: This is more of a standard run and gun affair, but it is not entirely the old school shooter one would expect it to be. There are carry limitations, with Duke only being able to carry two weapons at a time and two pipebombs and two laser tripwires. There’s no scuba gear making underwater sections that much more frustrating and there’s no jetpack (only in multiplayer) but holoduke is here as well as some other pickups. The ego bar which was introduced in Manhattan Project is here, but it really isn't anything new seeing as it really is just the same regenerating health/shield gimmick used in other more modern titles, but just dressed up a bit. There are bits in the game where you can increase your maximum ego by doing things like lifting weights (especially while looking in the mirror while doing it) or engaging in actions of a more adult nature. That's about the most impressive new feature here. Oh, and no ADS, or iron sights with weapons here. Just an undated zoom feature. AI: Your standard enemies are here with some new variations in the case of the Pig Cop, and it is admittedly quite cool to see the gang back again but with new updated looks. Just like DN3D and even DN 2 before it, you have boss creatures like the Octaking which present quite a challenge in most cases. And when there aren't boss creatures you have massive ambushes to keep you busy. Overall: Duke Nukem Forever isn’t the worst game around, like many out there will have you believe. But it is by no means the best either. Go into it with high expectations, comparing it to the likes of Duke Nukem 3D, and you are bound to get your hopes dashed. Go into it with low expectations and you won’t be disappointed – you might even be pleasantly surprised. This is still an enjoyable title when all is said and done.
