Duke Nukem has been ridding the world of alien scum for some time now on the PC, so his move to the Nintendo 64 was highly anticipated. The result is a nearly direct translation of the infamous PC game to the N64. The entry is a welcome one, since Duke injects a healthy amount of politically incorrect humor into the painfully serious first-person shooter market.

Gamers shoot their way through a variety of levels modeled after real-world locales, such as movie theaters and office buildings. The action is fast and bloody, courtesy of your arsenal of powerful weapons. Call us crazy, but we especially liked the grenade launcher. This weapon shoots delayed-fuse projectiles that can bounce around corners to dislodge lurking enemies.

When you tire of the single-player levels, you can partake in a fun deathmatch with up to three other players. Thanks to some adept computer-controlled "Dukebots," you don't even need to round up any friends to enjoy this portion of the game.

The game's major fault is its poor graphics. Levels and explosions are rendered in 3-D, but everything from monsters to weapons are depicted as flat, pixilated 2-D sprites. Duke Nukem certainly isn't the prettiest shooter on the N64, but it is among the funniest. --T. Byrl Baker

Pros:

  • Deathmatch offers a fun alternative to solo play
  • Realistic environments add to gameplay
Cons:
  • Poor graphics
  • Occasional slowdown

5.0 out of 5 stars Best game EVER December 8, 1999
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I think this the best N64 game nintendo has to offer, it not only has great gameplay, but graphics,guns, levels, and enimies.Levels were challenging(not if you had cheats)and Co-op mode was very helpful. Multipayeris probaly the best thing in the game becuase if you are an only child you can go against drones, which is fun when you have 2 people playing and 2 drones, you don't know who is who you just have to blast'em!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best version ever made. July 18, 2003
The PC version is still my favorite because you can change everything, but unlike what some people say, I think this has realy great graphics. A while ago I gave the Saturn version a bad review, but I admit it had the best shading effects, they looked like an early version Red Faction's shading. The shading on Duke 64 is just like the computer version's, not bad looking, but the Saturn's was better. But on the other hand, that's why the Saturn version was [bad], to do the cool shading, they had to make a new engine, and the levels got messed up, Duke always looked like he was crouching, and all the neat effects were gone. The PlayStation version (PS not PSX, the PSX is a deluxe PS2. There are no PSX games, and no PS1 games) was almost identical to the PC version, and looks cool with "smooth texture mapping" on the PS2, but the framerate was choppy, and the graphics were fuzzy. I own the PS, PC, N64, and Saturn versions, and played them enough to know every variation, and this is the most evenly balanced version I've seen. The only version that will ever top this is if they convert the origional to open GL. Some hated the fact that the nudity is gone, but what is the point, most people probably own Duke Atomic fo PC or Mac already. And it doesn't take anything from the game. In fact the removal of nudity, strong language(explicit language) and religion adds a lot of surprises (enemies in different places, new areas). I'm not sayin i didn't like Duke Atomic, but i already have it, this is the most different version. My favorit thing is the more realistic set up of the levels (you see buildings instead of a dumb texture), and the new guns. One thing though, did they mean to [take] dual the sub-machine guns and grenade launcher from Shadow Warrior? Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Time to chew bubble gum... February 22, 2011
By Matt32
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I remember getting this game and being blown away! The aliens, the gore, the raunchy bad @$$ hero Duke Nukem...AWESOME!

Ofcourse now we have Call of Duty, Battlefield, Dead Space, etc... But if you are wanting a vintage gem pick up this game! I stayed up countless nights with friends playing through the game in co-op mode and facing off with each other in team death match. Solo player itself was quite challenging, and still is. I have always felt this game sort of set the stage for FPS along with Perfect Dark and Golden Eye.

Bad points: It can be irritating because it is so challenging. Also, there are a lot of extremely dark areas of maps that make it hard to see (maybe even impossible). At the time of its release I thought the graphics were great, but now that I play through it again, they are kind of disappointing. I mean, still decent for the time but considering similar games that were on the 64...they could have done a bit better.

Good points: Weapons are awesome. SMGs, plasma canon that evaporates everything in its path, pipe bombs, shrink ray allowing you to crush your enemy, expand ray that enlarges them until they explode...HA just coolness. Combat boosts were always a neat item that I wish had been in more games. You can also aquire a jetpack, Vitamin X, holoduke to confuse enemies, dumdum (explosive) pistol rounds, and many other helpful items.

Fairly smart enemies and a wide variety of aliens. Challenging bosses as well.

A lot of objectives on each map. Rescue the hidden "babes", find keycards, solve lock puzzles, even crush toilets and drink the water to regain health. And you get a good number of maps too!

I would suggest picking this game up, you get a lot of play time out of it. Its a good blast from the past for us who miss the N64 on occassion.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Perfect Port of "Duke Nukem 3D"...Sort of February 21, 2000
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
"Duke Nukem 64" is the Nintendo 64 port of the hit PC game, "Duke Nukem 3D". While I enjoyed the original "Duke 3D", the N64 port didn't seem quite as good. It's been slightly toned-down from the PC version (Nintendo wouldn't allow Duke to say certain things, or the girls in the game to show certain parts of their bodies), but nothing too major. It's quite gory, and Duke himself has some hilarious and sometimes off-color comments. The assortment of weapons is fantastic, from Laser Tripbombs, to the Shrinker/Expander gun, which can shrink your enemy so you can squash him like a bug, or make him expand until he explodes. A few of the enemies are a bit unimpressive, but, some are rather unique. While there's alot of action in "Duke 64", there's alot of puzzles, as well, which can really stump you. Sometimes, you might spend more time looking for the exit than blasting nasty aliens. The graphics look pretty good, if not a little bland at times. Having some better lighting at points wouldn't have hurt, either. "Duke 64" also runs very nicely, usually only slowing down during those BIG explosions. My biggest gripe, though, is the sound. The quality of the sound effects is good, with weird alien growls and other neat ambient sounds, but the music is...nonexistent. There is none, aside from the title screen (which sounds great). This can be a bit annoying to have complete and utter silence while solving some complex puzzles. There's nothing in the background to keep you going. Although alot better on the PC, "Duke Nukem 64" is still not bad. If you have a decent computer, get "Duke Nukem 3D" instead. But, if you've got nothing but an N64, and are craving some nice, DOOM-like action with a bit of humor thrown in...maybe you should consider getting a nice computer or "Duke Nukem: Zero Hour". That's my two cents.
