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 one of the games being the longest time in development, also known as development hell. There was no way this game could even match anyone's expectations after 11 years, but nobody expected it to be this bad. The game was "finished" by notoriously bad developer Gearbox (which hit the goldmine with meh Borderlands meme shooter). The worst part about this game is that it could've been good - while graphics are meh and soundtrack is extremely forgettable, if only they made the stages more interesting rather than boring, because riding a car with physics this wretched is not fun. Ego system and some of the jokes were actually funny and voice of Duke is still something you want to listen too (I'm missing voice actors in FPS with voice like this...), unlike Shadow Warrior remake and 2, where you would rather have character being mute. Nowadays, this game is a sad joke and Duke only appears in games as a cameo without making any sense at all.
Is the game good? Yes. Is it that good that it was ok to wait more than 10 years for it? Hell no! Duke Nukem Forever is just a soulless FPS generic game. It actually can't be more generic. The game is rushed (yeah, it took all those years to be developed and it is rushed) and you just have to go through linear levels shooting at everything in your screen. That is ok for a FPS but not for one you've been waiting for so many years. And the wait was bad for Mr Duke Nukem too. Those who enjoyed Duke Nukem 3D's puns have grown up, and they are more like adults rather than those pre-teenagers/teenagers. Duke Nukem didn't grow up with them, and it is like watching a 80's action hero movie trying to be serious. As you can see is all a matter of perception. I mean, I really enjoyed the game, and I laugh with Duke a lot of times, but I understand every single bad review the game has. Keep that in mind before buying it.
DNF isn't a bad game. It was in development hell and it shows. There were some fun-killing things about it at release, like the 2 weapon limit. Those are fixed now. The game looks pretty good. It has some of the best customization options out there including, but not limited to, FOV angle. Right now Duke Nukem Forever is a worthy shooter. Yeah, it has all that politically incorrect Donald Trump level 'Murica craziness written all over it. As a Duke Nukem game should be. It's sexist in a tongue-in-cheek way - every Duke Nukem game is. It's over the top - well, we asked for it. The fact that many critics slammed it only because they expected it to be bad is unfair. Because, as I said, while not the best Duke Nukem game out there (and I'm still angry about Duke Nukem Reloaded being cancelled), it's definitely not the worst either.
The first time I heard about Duke Nukem Forever was way before 2000. I read about it in some games magazine and, oh boy - I WAS REALLY WAITING FOR THIS GAME. No wonder, since Duke Nukem 3D was really great, but not as much as platformer games. Anyway, years was passing and there was only bad news... people was sure that it won't be released and, in 2010, there was info on PAX EAST. Finally game was released in 2011, 14 YEARS after first announcement. Was the waiting worth it? Sadly, I don't think so. Don't get me wrong - it's not bad game. Duke Nukem fans will enjoy it. But after so long time we got something that doesn't look like everybody expected it to be. If you never played Duke Nukem games, then be sure to not start with this part. You won't enjoy it at all. If you aren't fan of this franchise, then you can expect nothing more than decent shooter game. Only hardcore fans will enjoy it to the fullest.
Duke Nukem Forever was supposed to be one of the most sucessful games ever released for these many years of development and the history behind the protagonist Duke, but the game wasn't that great, it has regenerating health called ego, some bugs, not soo beautiful graphics,bad controls ,but still a playable game, if you really want to enjoy how duke was supposed to be, buy Duke Nukem 3d megaton edition
