My only goal here is to save someone $30 who might otherwise be sold (as I was) on the Duke name. The team that created the upcoming Duke Nukem Forever game did NOT work on this title. I thought it was strange that I didn't hear much about this DS title. After playing it I understand why they're trying to slip it under the radar.

Cons:
-The graphics are outdated. Even for DS (compared to PSP), they are disappointing for 2011.

-On level after level you will be shot by enemies off of the screen. The developers tried to resolve this by allowing you to use right bumper to see 'ahead', but who wants to hold a button down throughtout a level plus have the view be negatively skewed??

-The controls are some of the worst and convoluted that I've seen for a handheld game. For sniping, imagine 4-6 enemies shooting at you while you're using a touch-screen stylus to navigate two separate controls: one to zoom in & out and another to look left and right. Then, another button allows you to hold your breath. Then, yet another button takes the shot. All while you're trying to hold onto your DS! On top of that hand-numbing contortion, the framerate is so poor that it's hard to line up an actual shot.

I could continue to list the negatives but instead will just say that it commits the worst crime a game can commit: it isn't any fun. Duke deserves better.

This game is very similar to Duke Nukem Manhattan Project, where it is a sidescroller. I found it very fun and entertaining, and still keeping the duke feeling we all like.
Pros:
- Great variety of weapons and enemies
- Combines different gameplays and makes it comfortable and easy to understand. It also adds to the variety of the game itself
- Great settings and visuals
- Long enough to keep you busy for many days

Cons:
- Screen is a bit too zoomed in, so enemies are a bit harder to see if not pressing L or R
- No cutscenes between levels and you can't tell the end of the level. This is what I disliked the most, I felt as going through the levels was too sudden. For example once you get to the finish, immediately you start the next level, you never know when you reach the end, unlick Duke 3D which the end always had the radioactive sign. This gives you no chance to explore or go back in the level to get items you missed.

Overall, this is not a GREAT game, or the best in the Duke series, but it is a good follow up, and one that was worth my money. As a longtime Duke fan, I was very pleased with this game. The only downside is since this was original meant to be part of a trilogy, it seems the trilogy has been cancelled and this was the only game that got released, so it's sad to see this fall through.

My son loves this game! He remembers watching his dad play it and was so glad to find it for his DS.

This game is so bad it's humorous. The graphics are muddy and dark. The side scrolling 'action' consists of straight arm kicks and gun shooting...better animations in most 8bit games. I can't say the game is worth a dime, but its worth checking out if only to bench mark bad games

Oddly enough, I enjoyed Duke Nukem: Critical Mass even more than Duke Nukem Forever. The closest thing Duke Nukem: Critical Mass resembles is Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project, but it also feels a little bit like Duke's other third-person adventures such as Time to Kill and Land of the Babes on the Playstation 1. Duke Nukem: Critical Mass was developed in conjunction with Apogee, which is definitely a name that many Duke fans will find familiar. The grunt work, however, was done by Frontline Studios. I put this game off originally because I had heard so many bad things about it from the few people on the internet that actually bought it, but I decided to give it a go once it came down to the $15 or less range for a new copy. I'm definitely glad that I didn't overlook this one.

The gameplay is a mixture of various genres. First you have the side-scroller platforming gameplay that was used in Manhattan Project. In addition, if an enemy is in a back alley or something, you can press up on the directional pad and take cover against the nearest wall to take the enemy out. Then you have sniper gameplay, which allows you to zoom in on an area and take out the enemies surrounding it. You also have very cool shoot 'em up sections, which is where you go into a top-down view and it feels like you're playing a classic vertical shoot 'em up. And lastly, you have the boss battle mode, which has Duke in a more 3rd-person, free-aim camera style of gameplay, like in Time to Kill or Land of the Babes. In both the shoot 'em up sections and also in some boss battles you'll be able to perform QTE-lite events that make the actions seem a little more cinematic, especially for a DS game.

The graphics are ok.

Its not blue enough for me, but hey all nintendo product even adult rated is several notches below their competitors version.
You can't get more campy bordering on the ludicrous, this stuff plays so male oriented it insults any sensitive new age guy.
Fun can be had by all,If needed be get a mindset on egotism.Realize the fantasy seize the day/carpe diem.
