Heroes Come and Go, But a King Reigns Forever

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

Duke Nukem is one of the biggest and most recognizable brands in gaming history. Irreverent, UN-PC, and uber-Macho, Duke Nukem is the perfect antidote to the overdose of today's clichéd gaming archetypes. The game's cocktail of alien invasion, busty babes, bawdy comedy and big guns never gets old. The highly anticipated Duke Nukem Forever is a celebration of what video games are really about: an out loud good time. The game is huge, with hours and hours of over-the-top single player action, and a range of bodacious multiplayer modes like Duke Match, Capture the Babe and Hail to the king, players can rest assured knowing that the fun will last.

5.0 out of 5 stars I've waited half my life for this. July 1, 2011
By Zer0
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Balls of steel|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Background: Duke3D was my first foray and exposure to FPS's... and from then, I just couldn't care about what John Carmack did with Wolfenstein 3D or Doom I/II. I didn't care about slaughtering demons or nazi's... it was all about hitting up the Red Light District level, going into the club, and making those strippers dance... then taking out your frustrations on the pig cops that hurt them ladies! It was popular enough back then it was even installed on school computers, left as a reward if we finished our homework and classwork ahead of time. There was no question which class we got stuff done in then.

Back to the review...

Packaged arrived adequately protected, nothing harmed. At least till I got my hands on it.

Balls of Steel came with a nice set of goodies. The "Carpe Nukem" bust is well detailed, with the only disappointment being that I thought it was going to be bigger than what it was.

Deck of cards makes sense, and the box they come in has a nice motif; Just wish they could have been Duke Nukem-themed like the dice.

The Artbook is impressive, both for the assets shown, and for having a bit of insight from the creators that finally managed to bring the "unreleasable" to the grubby masses.

The papercraft figure of Duke is idea-wise a riot. Just hoping to get an exacto knife so I could actually assemble it properly. And the postcards are a keeper, too.

Now, to the review of the actual game...

Gearbox has went on and stated how this was basically intent to be a preserving of 3DRealms' original vision for the game, what they were originally going to bring us way back in 199X/200X. That being said, it's sad to see some "modern" features creep in. I get that it was a concession for console players...

3.0 out of 5 stars Duke Returns in a Fun but Flawed Piece of History June 16, 2011
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Balls of steel|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
While I was much more of an occasional gamer in 1996 I did play Duke Nukem 3D and remember it fondly. Not long ago I played through the game using eDuke, a free engine source port that makes the game control and play at high resolutions and using modern control methods. It's a great game with varied level design and a fun atmosphere, though it definitely suffers from some issues. Jumping forward to Duke Nukem Forever I can say much the same thing... fun but flawed.

Duke Nukem Forever does not play like the 1996 original with it's open levels, key hunting and over-the-top weapon combat. It also does not play like a 2011 game, more scripted and almost painfully linear. Duke Nukem Forever plays like it came from roughly 2004, the era of Halo and Half-Life 2. Like Halo you have an "ego shield" that recharges, you can only use two weapons and the combat is more about moving and knowing which weapon to use. Like Half-Life you have to solve small little physics puzzles, explore the environment for ammo and bonus items and explore non-combat areas for story content and interactivity. If you like the idea of those two games melded together you're off to a good start with Forever, but unfortunately there are deeper hurdles to overcome.

Duke Nukem Forever had a long and almost insane development history as you probably know. The project was started in 1997 and went through multiple complete reboots. Trailers from the 90's and early 2000's show a completely different game than this one is. That fractured stop-start development shows all over the finished project. Levels do not feel naturally linked a lot of the time, design varies from interesting to terrible, the graphics go from pretty good to dreadful and back again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Game That Lives Up To The Hype February 18, 2012
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Balls of steel|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
DUKE NUKEM FOREVER is a now-infamous video game that some waited 15 years to play, and this alone is cause for many of the game's bad reviews. I, however, was only six years old when Duke Nukem 3D came out and, even though I played the game all throughout my childhood years (and still love it), I never really waited for a sequel and eventually forgot about it until a year or two ago. Then the game last year and no one seemed to like it and some of the reviews told of things that I knew I wouldn't like, and that was almost depressing.

But I got the game anyway and I do NOT regret it.

DNF lives up to my expectations as someone who has played all the Duke Nukem games and knows what it is that makes Duke DUKE. It is truly a worthy successor to DN3D: lots of action, lots of aliens, and more hilarious one-liners from Duke. The story is fun, too.

The only downsides are these:
1) No jet-pack.
2) Limited range of level exploration
3) Very limited weapons inventory*
4) It is sometime unclear what you're supposed to do.

*The weapon inventory has received a ton of criticism (you get two gun slots standard), but I think it can be defended as such: it ads a level of difficulty that gamers should appreciate (unless you just don't like a challenge). Also, you really should be playing the game on PC (it's the superior and intended version), which gives the option of holding four guns instead of two. The four-gun system works well, as it lets you have three of your favorite guns and a fourth slot for whatever special weapon the level demands, or just four guns you like best and screw the rest. I like it.

As for the packaging of the BALLS OF STEEL EDITION and the bonus materials: it's good stuff.
