4.0 out of 5 stars Aged about as well as Doom November 30, 2012
By Yao Jin
Verified Purchase
There was a time when not all FPS came with on screen radars, constant hints about where to go next. Duke Nukem 3D was one of the finest of that generation, complete with pixelated walls and twitchy enemies with 4 frames of animations.

Most likely, many players who download this game today would have never played anything prior to the Dreamcast/PS2/Xbox generation. Maybe some have played Goldeneye on Nintendo 64. Very few of you would have played Duke Nukem 3D on a Pentium computer from back in the mid-to-late 1990's. But for those who remember what it was like to try to ping another computer in Dos in order to play this game via LAN party, the good news is that the experience is largely faithfully translated here.

For the newcomers:

- Turn away now. This is not a game you will enjoy. This game is considered a predecessor to even the original Quake (by a few months).
- You will likely find the graphics crude, primitive, highly pixelated, low-resolution, little gameplay differentiation.
- All the pop culture references littered throughout the game will likely be lost to you as well.
- For those who grew up with PS2/Xbox, you will likely find this game to be anywhere from 1 to 3 stars, depending on your level of appreciation for older games.

For the veterans:

- This game is largely intact from its initial release in January of 1996.
- Duke still mutters one-liners like "I don't have time to play with myself", and "It's time to kick ass and chew bubblegum, and I'm all out of gum".
- Most of the secrets survived the porting process, that I can remember of.
- Yes you can still tip the strippers.


- The default controls are very sensitive.

3.0 out of 5 stars Controls are very... bad. October 26, 2012
Verified Purchase
Yeah. Bad. When looking around, on numerous occasions, the screen will jump in slightly in a direction when you take your finger off, making targeting enemies very difficult. On top of that, the actual fire button is very small, and requires you to have pinpoint precision. If you don't hit it dead on, then you touch the background and either do nothing or make the camera move. Sure you have eyes and you can look to make sure you're hitting it - but your target is also a moving one in most cases, and taking your eyes off it is a sure way to miss or die.

The gameplay of this port is exactly the same as it was on the PC and as it was on the X-box live arcade. That is, move around, aim, shoot. There are no extra weapons or bonuses when you buy it and therefor the only reason to have it is to play duke nukem either on the go, on the can, or if you're too lazy to turn on your PC or Xbox, in bed.

It's not a bad investment especially if you like classic shooters and for $0.99 pricetag it's practically a steal compared to the $10.00 price (800 Microsoft Points) on the 360 and the range of $257.50 virtual mugging that a new copy of the original PC Classic sometimes goes for - which I might mention won't run on modern computers without a special emulation program.

However, if you want more - the Xbox 360 version does include special downloads such as themes and picture packs. It also includes the 4th episode - The Birth, that only came with the Atomic Edition of the original game whereas the kindle does not.

2.0 out of 5 stars I like to kick butt and chew gum, and I'm all outta gum! November 30, 2012
Verified Purchase
This was my second favorite PC game of all time. (Mechwarrior is #1) I was more than a little excited when I saw Duke had been ported to Android. How cool is that?

Unfortunately, not cool enough. The game graphics, play, characters, everything may be exactly like the PC game, but the controls leave much to be desired. As big a fan of Duke that I am (Duke Nukem Forever the obvious exception), I really wanted to like this, but the controls make it all but unplayable. If someone can figure out a way to jack in a joystick or keyboard to their device and make this playable, it would help tremendously.

Five stars for the game itself. Minus three stars because it's almost impossible to play on the device.

1.0 out of 5 stars Looks pretty, plays terribly. July 1, 2012
Verified Purchase
This does indeed seem like a very faithful port of the original PC game, but the controls are so bad as to make it almost impossible to play; and simply turning down the sensitivity won't solve the laggy controls and poor control layout. The've tried to counter the poor controls by making the auto-aim so liberal that it'll reward you with a hit just for firing in the general direction of an enemy.

If I paid more than 99c I'd be very upset at wasting my money on this. No matter how pretty it is, and how much nostalgia it's going to inspire, I couldn't recommend it to anyone.

2.0 out of 5 stars they warned me July 28, 2012
Verified Purchase
I was sceptical of the low reviews and bought this because it looked like a lot of fun. big mistake. this game is probably awesome on computer but whoever thought these controls were acceptible was an idiot. don't make the same mistake as me and disregard the low reviews because they are right. this game is just not playable on a tablet

Verified Purchase
I saw this and got happy. I read the reviews and had my doubts. I got the game as the faotd and I played it....for about 5 minutes. it sucked so bad...just believe the bad reviews and save yourself the frustration. I wish I did. it has so much potential which is why I think I'm so disappointed.
